I'll have to check. Never tried something like that on Joomla (did similar thing on WordPress).

The parameters are a bit difficult indeed to place in a shortcode manual. But i've seen a lot of components / plugins, where you can create a shortcode with tons of parameters using a button in the editor screen.

 

So when using the button in the editor , you get a lightbox/popup where you can select the options and configuration. And then the plugin converts it into a shortcode

Hi,

Each module has lots of parameters. It will be hard to do that with a plugin for an admin (looking up shortcode attribute etc.). Module manager has filtering option that can help you list the things you need.

In most use cases people create one gallery or a few modules. I guess your use case is a bit different.

I haven't got a chance to update this extension in a while. Will consider it for a future version

I would love to see the possibility of shortcode use for SFBalbum. When working with a lot of galleries, it's getting messy in the module or menu manager.

If we can use shortcodes like {sfbalbum=FBalbumID} in articles , it would be great to keep the administrator area neat.
