Thanks for the amazing work! I ran into a small issue. Flickr is now requiring the connection be from ssl (https) to the api. This needs to be updated in the javascript file. I updated ours but you may want to update the source. Thanks again.

cosmocoder

Yes, I am aware of this recent change in the Flickr API, and will upload the updated version of the script in Codecanyon soon.

Hi, I can’t load an Album from picasa. There’s no problem with collection, user or text option but when I try to load an album from picasa don’t show it.

I copy the correct ID album and user, even I try with other albums and all of them are shared in public option. You can see one of them in this link:

I copied the user: 116161910386900240645 and the album ID: 6032908915194603313

Thanks for your response

cosmocoder

You have to use the alphabetical album id, not the numeric id. Something like PilarTorresiCastells.

Default-user

I try with different names and different other public albums and I can’t show them.

You can see what I say in this video uploaded in youtube:

What am I doing wrong?

cosmocoder

I tried Nova Gallery with the Picasa username you have mentioned and I am getting the error message stating that the user does not exist.

Hi, thinking of purchasing this plugin it looks really impressive, just one question though. In the comments saw you were saying how there is some internal resizing done for the thumbnails to prevent gaps, just want to make sure if you can add a margin or padding to the thumbnail images? so that theyre all still evenly spaced but with a few pixel gap inbetween them all

cosmocoder

Thanks for purchasing!

Yes, you can have a margin between the thumbnails by adding the necessary css code. You can find details on this in the provided documentation.

ah right nice one! also just wondering, because im using this for a specific purpose, is it easy to integrate with another lightbox? such as swipebox for example, and also, when I try to add a 1px border around all the pics, it ends up messing up all of the grid. Not major but is there a way around this?

cosmocoder

The gallery can only use the included lightbox which is tightly integrated with the inner workings of the gallery.

Currently the gallery script does not take into account image borders. I will try to include this feature in my next update.

Hi Cosmocoder, I’m having issues due to Flickr latest changes and I’m really under pressure for this. Is there any way you could tell me what to change in the js file to fix it? Really hope there is an easy fix Thank you

cosmocoder

No, that should do it and this is the only change in the Flickr API requirements. Give me the link to your page and I will have a look. You can also contact me through my profile page message box.

Default-user

sorry, it is working…(good old cache!) thank you!

cosmocoder

Good to know that.

Hi,

I’m doing something wrong, I get a continuous loading image when trying to show a Picasa album. Could you please help me?

You can always the check the browser console when you load photos from Flickr/Picasa because the gallery script logs messages there. In this case it seems that either your Picasa username or album name is not correct.

My Google username is : Jaap Veldhorst and my Picasa album is here: https://plus.google.com/photos/109518372458544644283/albums/6041011909569569201

Don’t know what I am doing wrong. Could you check?

cosmocoder

Your picasa userid will be numeric, sorry for the confusion regarding that. As you may have already found out from the album url, your userid is 109518372458544644283.

The alphabetic album id is generally the album name without the spaces. So in your case the album id is “DikkeBandenrace”.

I have tried these id’s in Nova Gallery and it is working. You can try them for yourself and see.

Default-user

Got it working too. Thanks!

cosmocoder

Good to know it is working for you.

A couple of questions/issues:

Is there a way to show more buttons (forward, rewind, etc) for the audio player?

I notice in FireFox on iOS (I don’t think it’s supported but I’d bring it to your attention), if you are in portrait mode while listening to audio and move to landscape, the browser crashes.

How do we link to a gallery view and/or an media directly?

No this is not possible. You can use the player trackbar for that purpose.

Firefox does not have a iOS version. Did you mean the Android version?

How do we link to a gallery view and/or an media directly?
By gallery view if you mean the entire gallery itself then its link is the page in which it is embedded. By linking to media file directly if you mean to make the media file viewable in the gallery (maybe in the modal box) when opening the said link then this is not possible. You can try to use some javascript to open the media file by reading some parameter from the url.

On the fixed size gallery, is it possible to modify the scrollbar to a custom scripted one so it’s not the default bar? (if so maybe you could add that as an option in later releases)

cosmocoder
1. Is there a setting that lets me click on the overlay to close the lightbox instead of having to only hit the X button.

If you don’t want the button to be on the top then you can change its position through css. You can also change the default background image of the button throuh css.

2. On mobile I have to zoom in pretty close to the images to get them to open since the magnifying glass hotspot is so small. The image then opens below where I have to zoom in to hit the button. Any suggestions on making that a bit more user friendly?

You can increase the size of the button through css.

Default-user

The button position is fine, it’s the fact you have to click it to close the image only. Most lightbox/overlays have an option somewhere that lest you you click off the image to close it. This one, by default does not appear t have that.

cosmocoder

No, it does not have that. You can close the lightbox by either clicking the “close” button or pressing the ESC key.

Beautiful product. When pulling items from Flickr, is it possible to set up multiple conditions such as from within a set, narrow results by tags?

cosmocoder

If you want all the effects of Nova Gallery’s sets page then you will have to use the gallery for it. But then each set item/thumbnail won’t act as a link. So you have to choose to create your custom page with links or use Nova Gallery for everything.

Default-user

Okay. And congratulations on such a beautiful product.

cosmocoder

Thanks.

Hello, great product but I am a beginner and having some trouble implementing it. I am trying to display a Picasa feed on http://www.sailweekcroatia.com/2015/gallery.html, but all I’m getting is a loading button. Any advice?

http://www.sailweekcroatia.com/2015/gallery.html Sorry, I think the comma at the end messed with the link. This should work!
cosmocoder

You page is loading three different versions of jquery, which is probably causing the problem. You need to rectify this. Either your plugin or your theme is loading extra versions.

Hello, thanks for the tip. I tried loading the original version of the gallery-fixed-width.html with no additional jquery, just adding the script to load the Picasa gallery (https://plus.google.com/photos/109947682817183238081/albums/6072263158724102177). It looks like the username and album name are correct, but still only getting a loading symbol and the following error: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘id’ of undefined – jquery.novagallery.min.js:5.

The version I’m trying to get working is here: http://www.sailweekcroatia.com/2015/nova-gallery.html

Hope you can help! Thanks so much.

Hello,

I was wondering if you could answer a couple of questions before I purchase this.

- Does it support flv and wmv video files?

- I have images and videos that are stored in an online repository. If I have links to the image or video, can I simply insert it into the xml file?

- Does it have the ability to auto populate images based on a folder or would I need to manually insert each in the xml file?

- Are thumbnails auto populated?

Looking forward to your answer so I can hopefully buy this! Thank you.

cosmocoder

Thanks for your interest!

The gallery does not support flv and wmv files.

You can provide links to media files that are stored in an online repository.

The gallery cannot auto populate images from a folder.

You also need to provide the thumbnails.

Hi there, still having trouble making this work. I used the original gallery-fixed-width.html with no additional jquery, just adding the script to load the Picasa gallery (https://plus.google.com/photos/109947682817183238081/albums/6072263158724102177). It looks like the username and album name are correct, but still only getting a loading symbol and the following error: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘id’ of undefined – jquery.novagallery.min.js:5. I also tried testing this with the username and album name of previous commenters who were able to get their gallery working and no luck.

Thank you for your help.

cosmocoder

I am currently travelling so I can’t inspect the problem. Please remind me about this on the 16th.

Does this gallery software have an administration interface to upload images and create albums or does this have to be done manually with code?

cosmocoder

This is just a jquery plugin so there is no admin panel. If you want a more automated approach then look at the Wordpress plugin version of the gallery, but of course in order to use it your site needs to run on Wordpress.
