Media Block
Feed media into your HTML pages and CMS applications with our MediaBlock technology and Gallery. With many of the features found inside our G2Bridge, MediaBlock is able to work with WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and many more.
Word Press Joomla Drupal

With Gallery as your "media manager", MediaBlock gives you the power to control our MiniSlide Show and the cooliris plugin as well, so embedding easy access to your Gallery content is simple.

MediaBlock is written in PHP so it's Open Source and and extremely versitile –and free! The MediaBlock.php can be used just like the imageBlock module for including Gallery content in external pages.

Below are some examples, along with the usage information on how to get MediaBlock working for your web site. If you have any questions on how to get this working for you, feel free to ask us in our forums.



The example below is calling in 11 items from a Gallery album. Notice how it closes the table properly?
