WP Photo Album Plus

This plugin is designed to easily manage and display your photo albums and slideshows in a single as well as in a network WordPress site.

Which other plugins do you recommand to use with WPPA+, and which not?

  • Recommanded plugins: qTranslate, WP Super Cache, Cube Points, Simple Cart & Buy Now, Google-Maps-GPX-Viewer.
  • Plugins that break up WPPA+: My Live Signature.
  • Google Analytics for WordPress will break the slideshow in most cases when Track outbound clicks & downloads: has been checked in its configuration.

Which themes have problems with wppa+ ?

  • Photocrati has a problem with the wppa+ embedded lightbox when using page templates with sidebar.

Are there special requirements for responsive (mobile) themes?

  • Yes! Go to the Photo Albums -> Settings admin page. Enter auto in Table I-A1. Lowercase letters, no quotes.
  • Do not use %%size=[any number]%%, unless you want a fixed width display. This setting is inherited to the next %%wppa%%, so use %%size=auto%% in the next %%wppa%% occurrence to go back to automatic.
  • If you use the Slideshow widget, set the width also to auto, and the vertical alignment to fit.
  • You may also need to change the thumbnail sizes for widgets in Table I-F 2,4,6 and 8. Set to 75 if you want 3 columns in the theme Responsive.

After update, many things seem to go wrong

  • After an update, always clear your browser cache (CTRL+F5) and clear your temp internetfiles, this will ensure the new versions of js files will be loaded.
  • And - most important - if you use a server side caching program (like WP Total Cavhe) clear its cache.
  • Make sure any minifying plugin (like W3 Total Cache) is also reset to make sure the new version files are used.
  • Visit the Photo Albums -> Settings page -> Table VII-A1 and press Do it!
  • When upload fails after an upgrade, one or more columns may be added to one of the db tables. In rare cases this may have been failed. Unfortunately this is hard to determine. If this happens, make sure (ask your hosting provider) that you have all the rights to modify db tables and run action Table VII-A1 again.

What do i have to do when converting to multisite?

  • After the standard WP conversion procedure the photos and thumbnails must be moved to a different location on the server. You have to copy all files and subdirectories from .../wp-content/uploads/wppa/ to .../wp-content/blogs.dir/1/wppa/ This places all existing photos to the 'upload' directory that belongs to blog id 1. Make sure the files are accessable by visitors (check CHMOD and .htaccess). Further, activate the plugin for all other blogs that require it.

How does the search widget work?

  • A space between words means AND, a comma between words means OR. Example: search for 'one two, three four, five' gives a result when either 'one' AND 'two' appears in the same (combination of) name and description. If it matches the name and description of an album, you get the album, and photo vice versa. OR this might apply for ('three' AND 'four') OR 'five'. If you use indexed search, the tokens must be at least 3 characters in length.

How can i translate the plugin into my language?

How do i install a hotfix?

What to do if i get errors during upload or import photos?

  • It is always the best to downsize your photos to the Full Size before uploading. It is the fastest and safest way to add photos tou your photo albums. Photos that are way too large take unnessesary long time to download, so your visitors will expierience a slow website. Therefor the photos should not be larger (in terms of pixelsizes) than the largest size you are going to display them on the screen. WP-photo-album-plus is capable to downsize the photos for you, but very often this fails because of configuration problems. Here is explained why: Modern cameras produce photos of 7 megapixels or even more. To downsize the photos to either an automaticly downsized photo or even a thumbnail image, the server has to create internally a fullsize fullcolor image of the photo you are uploading/importing. This will require one byte of memory for each color (Red, Green, Blue) and for every pixel. So, apart form the memory required for the server's program and the resized image, you will need 21 MB (or even more) of memory just for the intermediate image. As most hosting providers do not allow you more than 64 MB, you will get 'Out of memory' errormessages when you try to upload large pictures. You can configure WP to use 128 MB (That would be enough in most cases) by specifying define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M'); in wp-config.php, but, as explained earlier, this does not help when your hosting provider does not allows the use of that much memory. If you have control over the server yourself: configure it to allow the use of enough memory. Oh, just Google on 'picture resizer' and you will find a bunch of free programs that will easily perform the resizing task for you.
