Gallery Upload
« on: February 18, 2009, 02:43:12 PM »
I just tried to upload a pic to the Gallery, and got an error stating that I must select a Category, but the Category drop down is empty. 

I might suggest the following categories, to start out:
Karaoke Pics
URU Pics
SL Pics
Misc Pics

I say go for it.  I think we can create whatever categories we want, it doesn't have to be a "group" decision.  If I feel like adding a "Psycho-Serial Flying Monkey" category, I'm not going to ask for permission ;)

You didn't miss anything.  I checked with my second account and it looks like only moderators and admins can create categories, so if someone needs a category created post what you want it called here.

Is it possible to add nav buttons for "next picture" and "previous picture"?

Not with the gallery mod I currently have installed unfortunately.

I can switch to a different gallery system.  You'd have to re-upload all the pictures though.

Well, since I am the only one who has uploaded so far, now would probably be the best time.  In case you hadn't noticed, I kind of like beta testing... ;)

I'll do it either later tonight or tomorrow as I have a job interview soon.  I will post here when I've changed it.

We now have a new image gallery which also supports audio and video files.  In addition to the general catergories that I created you can also create user galleries for your own stuff.  This looks to be a much better system than the one I had installed originally.  Hope you all enjoy it.

Edit: Since the gallery supports video and audio do we still have a need for a seperate download page?  I don't think we need both now, but I want to hear what you all think.  Note: To use both would require uploading your file twice.

Yay, the new gallery is much better!  I just uploaded some test pics, the previous and next viewing buttons are great. 

I'm not sure I understand that bit you said about uploading files twice, but it doesn't sound like it would make our lives easier to add that...  ???

If you look at the link bar on the top there is a "Downloads" tab where you can upload files for others to download.  I see that being redundant now since the new gallery allows for music and video upload and for others to download them and I will probably remove it.

I see the gallery supports audio and video files, so I tried uploading an MP3.  Is it supposed to play from here just by clicking on it, or does the person need to download the file in order to play it?

And speaking of other files, how about adding gallery album folders for "audio files" and "video filess" (or something more creative, my muse is still asleep)?

I think the person will have to download it or if you want you can embed it in a post.  It should show you the BBcode to do that.

There is a gallery for karaoke songs already, though people may prefer uploading these to a user created gallery if they plan on uploading a lot of songs.  I will add 2 categories for general audio and video uploads when I figure out what to call them LOL.

In case anyone else was wondering about the "download" link, here's what happens using Firefox and Internet Explorer.

When I am looking at the song page and click "download", my browser asks if I want to open the file or save it; selecting open just plays the file.  There is no need to save it to my computer and then find it again and open it.  Easy, peasy! 8)

I clicked on Gallery today and instead of the list of public albums with items in them, it shows only my album; I am unable to find the public albums.  I don't see any way to upload new items anymore either.  Has it been removed?

I see lots of albums in the gallery - and at the bottom of the screen is an option to "add item to this album" but don't know if that has changed since this is my first visit to the gallery.

Here's a screenshot of what I see when I click User Albums.  I see your gallery and mine, as I ought, but no upload button.  On the Albums link (above screenshot) I should be able to see the list of public gallery folders.  Could it be a Firefox cache problem?  Perhaps it is behaving as though I'm not logged in, and I see what the general public would see?  I tried logging out and back in but it did not change.

I think this is something Sean needs to address. I use Firefox at work running off a flash drive and I see the entire folder list, incuding image folders and music folders. This version of FF does not have much of a cache.

It has to do with the new D'ni-J member group I made.  I'll go fix it now.

Edit: You should be able to to see all 9 of the public galleries now.  The group had permission to view the gallery, but I had to manually set it to be able to view each individual gallery even though you are also in another group that had permission to view them.  Annoying, but oh well.

Possible new issue with the gallery.  In the past I could upload a pic to be used as a thumbnail for my audio recordings.  Today when I try to upload a pic (JPG), I get the following:

An Error Has Occurred!
