History overview

Its not easy to gather all facts correctly as the first developers are not available. So the following was determined by Thomas Finnern in the files or told from lately active developers.

  • 2001 Ronald Smit started the creation of rsgallery for mambo around 2001. Therefore the first gallery is called rsgallery.

  • 2005 - 2010 Owning Domain RSGallery2.net with forum
  • 2012.01.24  Creation of Joomla 2.5
    • This was a major change with new structures and code breaks.
    • There were a lot of "futuristic" functions in the RSGallery2 code like "user templates to load" so when the new Joomla 2.5 structure was introduced It was very hard to upgrade to the new structure
    • Therefore some developers left
