Hi

thi plugin seems to be the EXACT tool I need for a big scaled wordpress website (a photographic archive with 360 pdf catalogues to show online)

Website is hosted on Websynthesis server, who is really powerful but more restrictive than cheaper hosting.

So plugin don’t works at all in this server environment, but, it works in Hostgator hosting and similar.

The message I receive is: ERROR No upload.php file found or incorrect file

In the plugin dashboard, thumbnail is missing, because script don’t works at all so pages are image aren’t created and missing.

A plugin similar to yours, which I bought on Codecnyon, has a similar problem, and if so converting the PDF I get an error message like this: “We found a problem: PDF Wizard can not work at your website two to your server configuration. Please contact with your hosting provider and ask to enable allow_url_fopen inside php.ini.

Do you think that your plugin needs to enable allow_url_fopen inside php.ini? Do you think could be the problem, or other?

I rally want this great plugin works perfectly, because I use it in a really great project and I want to use in other similar projects.

Best regards

Hi fabioschiano,

Sorry for the delay. Without a direct look on your WP site, it’s hard to say, what’s going wrong on your site. If it helps: You can generate all necessary files on a hosting account where the component works and then just copy the results on your server, where you have some issues.

I don’t have time, please answer me fastly.

Dear doghyun,

We’ve checked your site and found some “unusual” behavior. During the flip book generation, one of our scripts is called (upload.php). Instead of been executed the script is just outputted.

Please ask your provider if there’s any setting on your hosting account, which may result in this behavior.

Best regards

Hi, I want to know, Can you make it encrypted like no one can download?

Hi ashar13,

Magalone creates a lot of files from your initial PDF document with encrypted file names. So it’s not possible to download your full PDF with a single action.

Hello there! Your Magalone Flipbook plugin looks great but I have a question before purchasing it for a client. Does the plugin rely on Imagemagick or such in order to work and create the flipbook? If so, it will not work on the client’s site…

Would be great to hear back from you soon!

Merry Christmas!

Umberto

Hi Umberto,

Magalone generates all necessary files on your local browser and transfers them to you WP site. So it should work on your client’s site :-)

Merry Christmas

Sounds great! Thank you!

Nice and clean

Thanks :-)

Hallo,

habe das Plugin vor allem wegen den feature “supports multimedia overlays” gekauft. Ich wäre Ihnen sehr dankbar wenn Sie kurz erklären können, wie ich das benutzen kann.

Sehr vielen Dank im Voraus.

Benedikt Harter

Sehr geehrter Herr Harter,

vielen Dank für ihre Nachricht. Das Magalone Paket beinhaltet neben der Komponente auch eine ausführliche Dokumentation. Diese erreichen Sie, indem Sie die Datei start_here.html in Ihrem Browser öffnen. Dort finden Sie zahlreiche Beispiele zu den Multimedia Overlays.

Schöne Grüße

Das Magalone Team

Vielen Dank für die schnelle Antwort! Leider finde ich unter Downloads in der Zip Datei All files and dokumantation “nur” die Plugin Dateien und keine Dokumentation.

Beste Grüße

Sehr geehrter Herr Harter,

leider hat sich da wohl der Fehlerteufel eingeschlichen! Die Komponente für Wordpress unterstützt zur Zeit leider noch keine Overlays; Die Beschreibung wurde hier unachtsam aus der normalen HTML-Komponente kopiert. Wir werden die Beschreibung schnellstens aktualisieren und entschuldigen uns für diesen Fehler!

Selbstverständlich können wir ihnen die Kosten erstatten oder auch einen Tausch gegen die normale Komponente anbieten – welche Overlays unterstützt, jedoch nicht ohne weiteres mit Wordpress kompatibel ist.

Schöne Grüße,

Das Magalone Team

Hello, I have a product catalog in pdf format. Would it be possible to have specific urls for each product category in the flipbook? Thank you.

Hello Ceceu,

when inserting the shortcode for the Magalone Flipbook into your post or page, you can define a “start page”. If you know which page your corresponding product is located on, you can set the start page accordingly.

Best regards,

Can i have the plugin installed n one site and link a pdf from another server? Will it still work?

Hello Slumber,

the wordpress plugin only works with local documents, if you want more customization and better control (including loading PDFs from other sources) take a look at the standalone version.

Best regards,

The Magalone Team

Ich habe aus Versehen meine Frage bei der JS Version des Plugins gestellt – also hier nochmal mein Anliegen: In der ZIP Datei die Sie als Download bereitstellen, fehlt die Dokumentation. Ich sitze hier vor einer Kundenseite und komme nicht weiter, weil ich nicht weiss welche Shortcodes zu verwenden sind. Bitte beheben Sie das oder senden mir einen Link zur Dokumentation zu. Vielen Dank!

Hat funktioniert – vielen Dank!

Trotzdem würde mir eine Dokumentation fehlen da ich das Aussehen gerne verändern würde. In der Produktbeschreibung steht, es sei gut dokumentiert und individuell anpassbar. Irgendwie passt das noch nicht so ganz zu dem was ich mit dem Plugin erhalten habe. Das Video sagt zwar aus, wie ich es einbaue – nicht aber, wie ich es per CSS stylen kann. Das fände ich schon wichtig.

Hallo Umberto,

da haben Sie Recht. Wir werden uns bemühen Zeitig eine Dokumentation für die Wordpress Komponente zu erstellen und nachzureichen. Wobei auch in der normalen Dokumentation keine Details zur CSS-Stilisierung vorhanden sind, sondern nur Hinweise wie man dies Bewerkstelligen kann.

Vorübergehend finden Sie die normale Dokumentation unter folgendem Link:

Hi there,

My pages have 1920×1080 pixels.

Is it possible to present them without the margins or “paspatur” around them, like a regular slideshow?

Hello Baccioly,

You need to set the size of the Magalone window to a size that is the same ratio as 1920×1080, which is to say 16:9. A small size which is the same ratio and might fit into a post could be 640×360 or 720×405.

Best regards,

Hello ifeelingz,

the problem must be during the creation process. Can you show us the response from the upload.php or have a look in your PHP logs and see if you can give us some more detailed error messages from there.

In any case, it might be best to check your PHP version before continuing, Magalone currently requires at least PHP 5.4 to operate.

Best regards,

The Magalone Team

PHP 5.6

Hello ifeelingz,

Could you check your PHP error logs after creating a new flipbook and send us the errors?

Best regards,

Hi,

My PDF has links in it but they do not work when viewed through the Magalone plugin. Is there a particular setting to enable this?

Hello brainiumlabs,

unfortunately this function is not yet supported; But in the next update you will be able to add overlays to manually add this function. After that we will be working on automatically detecting links in PDF documents and making them clickable.

Best regards,

The Magalone Team
