I hope it's OK that I create this topic here, cuz I cannot create it in the support forum. I put in my license number in the profile, but it won't let me use the support forum. Weird.
Anyways, one of you guys (Chuck, I think), installed the gallery on my forum today. (Thank you, btw.) However, I have a few problems.
First of all, with the uploads. I need to upload A LOT of images at the same time, so I use my FTP. Basically, the photos would be added to the appropriate album, but the gallery will stop once the number of uploaded photos reaches 30. It's weird cuz there are 84 photos in the folder specified. I tried uploading the rest of the photos, but am taken to a blank page again and again. Nothing seems to work. I'm out of ideas.
Another problems lies with creating categories. I tried creating another top category, but for some reason it keeps filing itself under the older top category, despite the fact that I have specified "none" under parent category. I'm very confused.
I really really really need to get this sorted today. Please reply as soon as possible.
Chuck, any chance "Photoshoots" can appear as "Appearances at Award Shows, Events and Public Outings", not under "Appearances at Award Shows, Events and Public Outings"? It looks weird and it's not supposed to be part of "Appearances", as you can imagine. "Appearances" is supposed to contain categories with different events; and "Photoshoots", similarly, is supposed to contain categories with different photoshoot sessions.
I just tried uploading those 84 photos from this directory: /home/tokiohot/data/www/www.tokiohotel.co.uk/gallery/uploads/2. Same results. You can see them in the gallery now. The pics that were randomly uploaded were deleted from the directory.
Yay! Everything works now. Thank you so much!!! *hug*
One more thing. I was wondering, if I make it so that recent photos are displayed on the main index page of my forum, will that make the server crash? I get about 3000 visitors daily, so... just wondering.
The problem was sorted. Turns out it was due to too many visitors at the time of uploading...
Another question, though: Is it possible to make secondary categories to display a thumbnail to indicate its content? Like, a thumbnail of the last uploaded photo or something. Do you know what I mean?
Another thing... (sorry, it never seems to end) - I recently changed my avatar on the forum... but for some reason the gallery displays my old avatar. Even after I uploaded more photos after having changed it. Is there a way to make the gallery "refresh" my avatar?
