XenForo Media Gallery (XFMG)

The XenForo Media Gallery is an add-on that allows you and your users to create galleries of images, videos, and audio in your forum, organized into admin-defined categories or user-created albums. It can be purchased from XenForo.com directly.

Installation, upgrades & uninstallation

The Media Gallery follows the standard XenForo add-on packaging system and approaches. Full guidance for these actions can be found in the add-ons section.

Once installed, you can reach the Media Gallery via the Media sections in the front end and admin control panel.

Media categories

Media will be placed into individual categories that are organized into a tree. In this regard, they are very similar to the node tree.

Media fields

Custom media fields allow you to define additional structured fields for users to fill in when creating a thread.

Media fields can be displayed in one of several locations:

  1. Below Media: this will be displayed below the media.
  2. Below Information: in the media view sidebar, in the "Information" tab.
  3. Extra Information Tab: in a new "Extra Information" tab next to the "Information" tab.
  4. Extra Tab: in its own tab, using the custom field's name as the tab title.


The Media Gallery adds a number of new permissions. When installed, reasonable defaults are selected based on existing permissions. However, you should confirm that the permissions meet your needs and that your moderators have the permissions you want.


The Media Gallery's options can be found in the XenForo Media Gallery option group.
