The Joomla Training Cohort has been launched!

Please send any feedback or bug reports to  

I had a client who wanted their users to be able to click on an image inside of a Phoca Gallery and have a Vimeo hosted video open instead. Using ReReplacer from Regular Labs, I was able to create a "tweak" to make that happen. In this video I show what I did to make that tweak. It's not the most elegant solution, but it works well enough for what my client wanted to accomplish, which was allowing the seniors who use his site to access images and video with an extension they already used: Phoca Gallery, which is for images - not videos.
