    New Gallery

    Hello All,

    So now we have fixed the uploading issue I can tell you that we have purchased a "PRO" Gallery which will still let you have your own Albums etc but also lets us have general albums and videos.

    In order to get this working I need to set up some categories etc, and thats where you come in......

    What section do you want?

    Here are a couple of sites that use the same system so have a look and it will give you an idea of what we can do with it.

    We can restrict who can see what and have different Galleries for different groups apparently!

    http://www.trifivechevys.com/dbtgallery.php?gal=gallery

    http://www.friendlygamersclan.com/db...hp?gal=gallery

    I have set up a few areas just to give you some idea what we can do but its all changeable all we need is your input.

    Re: New Gallery

    At the end of Febuary the old gallery will be taken down.

    I can move the pics on mass to a new area which I will do however it would be better if you could create a Album in the new Gallery and upload your pics into that then remove them from the old one please.

    I will put some instructions on how to use the Gallery below this post.

    Thanks
    Ian

    To make an Album in the Gallery.

    Click on Gallery
    the one with out the down arrow
    Click at top left "Add Album" and you will see this.





    Step1.png





    Fill in the "Title", "Description", "Tags" for making searches easier "Password" if you want to protect it from everyone seeing it.

    If you want to make the album Private put a tick in "Hidden from Public" then only you will see it.

    Press "Save".


    You should now see something like this.





    Step2.jpg






    Click on your your new album and it will look like this.






    Step3.jpg






    In the top left click "Upload Images" and you will get this screen.





    Album.jpg





    At the bottom of the new box you will see "Album" in a dropdown click and select your new album.
    In the box just above it you will see "Category" click on the dropdown and you will see this.





    Category.jpg






    Select which Category you would like to have it in, then just select your files and press "Add Image"

    That is......


    If you need a new category just let me know......

    Hi Ian,

    What is the file size limit?
    I just tried to upload some of the pictures i had in my other gallery and was told that the file size was too big to process.
    It would be nice for the uploader to state the max file size.

    Re: New Gallery

    Just tried one image & that worked, it was when I tried 5 together, so it must be a limit on the total upload???

    Newark Show Catagory please

    tried 2 & 3 images - that worked as well...

    There is no mention of Max file size mentioned anywhere in the program, only the size of each photo. Like you I also had the same issue when using multiple uploads all the photos are 800x600,
    There are a few exceptions depending on what group your in.

    Re: New Gallery

    So first off..........SORRY.


    The new Gallery has had and still does have some issues as you no doubt have noticed.
    There is a support ticket open for a couple of issues one of them is the fact the navigation on the left has gone mad.......
    The other is/was the import function.........

    Well it imported the albums just fine....what if appears to have failed to do is copy some of the photos over.......
    So the new albums are now there but some of them are now empty so you need to add your pics again!!!! (Sorry Ken)....


    Hopefully the navigation will work soon!!!

    PLEASE DO NOT USE THE GALLERY AT THE MOMENT OR YOU MAY LOSE YOUR PHOTOS AGAIN.

    Re: New Gallery

    The NEW GALLERY is now open for use

    Just so you know the search function only works on the title of the photo so if you want to be able to search the pics we all need to rename our photos before upload to something useful for searching.

    Enjoy.....
