    • Good question! While I wouldn’t recommend this specific installation since Joomla 2.5 is no longer the current version, it looks like Phoca Gallery is optimized for everything from images to YouTube videos. If your site is a store, you could show your latest products. Social media influencers can show their latest videos, realtors can show their latest properties for sale or rent, and other similar setups. It really just depends on what kind of site you have and what product or service you want to highlight. Hope that helps!
