Thanks for the new version with the multi user feature

Show albums of specified user

You can specify Picasa user ID to /pwa/index.php to display the user's public albums, like below.

http://your-site/pwa/index.php?user=anotheruser

Show photos of specified album

You can specify Picasa album ID to /pwa/index.php to display photos of the album, like below.

http://your-site/pwa/index.php?mode=photo&id=albumid

You can get album ID from Picasa RSS.


Update is here.

Picasa Web Album plugin for geeklog was updated. Now, it loads pwa.js only if needed.

In 5 days I'm going to want to display a lot of photos on my website, preferably without chewing up my site's bandwidth. This Picasa plugin sounds good.

But no mention of it for 3 years and the links above are dead.

Is it still available, should it work still, or does anyone have any other suggestion?

Otherwise I'm thinking I'll just have to show a few images and then link off to somewhere like facebook or picasa.

Nothing ever installs properly for me!

With trepidation I downloaded 1.2.1 from the link, went to Admins / Plugins and browsed for it, uploaded it, got the error:

Fatal error: An SQL error has occurred. Please see error.log for details. in /home/wfnews/system/databases/mysql.class.php on line 260

error.log shows:

(had to snip this bit out else geeklog was failing to submit it saying error rending the page, even though it was happy to Preview it)

 


As well as the fact that a spammer tries to log in approximately every 30 secs every hour of every day.

So how do I show you the text it didn't want to publish? I've tried to write it different ways but it won't let me submit it. Anyway it's to do with the table creation step for gl_flickr_cache

TYPE was deprecated in MySQL 4.0 and removed in MySQL 5.5. When upgrading to MySQL 5.5 or later, we must convert existing applications that rely on TYPE to use ENGINE instead.

So in the plugins/flickr/rmysql_install.php file, line 39 change from

PHP Formatted Code
TYPE=MyISAM


to

PHP Formatted Code
ENGINE=MyISAM


Thanks,

Ben

OK, I replaced it. Went to plugins page and Flickr is listed as uninstalled, was about to try to install, but noticed under Dependencies it lists jquery >= 1.3 as Unresolved... so does that mean I can't progress anyway?

(And another thing unrelated but thought I'd mention... I just posted up a Poll a few minutes ago and so far have total votes listed as 3 but the scores show 2 options have 50% and all else 0%, I went in as Admin and selected edit and sure enough there's two options that have 1 vote, all else 0. So where does the total get 3 from!? Anyway, not really an issue and will get swamped by more votes hopefully, just odd.)

Yes flickr plugin need jquery plugin to display images ina lightbox since release of the 1.2 version.

For the polls plugin that might be a bug.

OK I installed latest jquery successfully, then flickr (I had to delete the flickr admin from the groups table since it was half installed and crashed again when I tried).

So success! But....

Am I doing something stupid? I've now tried to use the flickr plugin and it won't work. It just shows my commands as text, so no pictures. E.g.

[flickr:1512521418 size:square Vamos a la playa]

which is copied straight from Ben's site just shows up as the above, no picture.

I have no such problems using [youtube:] or [story:]

Note that the flickr tags do appear below the story area when I'm editing, so it is installed. I can mouse over them to get tool tips.

Ah, I had to go get my own API key for Flickr. I didn't realise that was needed, thought it was something optional.
