    This is really weird. I just upgraded to make sure I was running 1.2.2 mingus, I downloaded the newest version of Exhibit, and I can see it in my plug in panel. I've activated the plug in but the panel is still not showing up.

    Did you save your post first? When you start a new post, you have to hit "save and continue editing" before you can see the Exhibit interface at the bottom of the post creation screen. After you hit that button, the page will refresh, and the Exhibit interface should appear at the bottom.

    To be clear, the newest official version is 1.1d. RM made a version available, which he labeled "asy", which my very well not work for most.

    Are you running 1.1d?

    Well, I'm out of ideas. If you want to e-mail me some ftp info to access your files and some info to look at your database, I'll see what I can do. My name is joey, and my website is speakbold.com . Put the two together and drop me an e-mail if want me to.

    i have Exhibit 1.1d, and WordPress 1.5-gamma 2005-02-08. Exhibit is not working .... Does it not work with 1.5 yet? Here are other plugins that I have installed and activated: Adhesive 2.1 beta, Countdown 1.0 alpha 5, EzStatic 1.9, Hello Dolly 1.0, Spam Karma 1.18 alpha 3, WP-CC 0.1.1, and WP Plugin Manager 1.6.4.b. I have followed the installation instructions, and Exhibit is activated in the plugin list; However, there is no Exhibit section in the edit post, write post, edit draft, or anywhere. I did notice that when I browse to a comments page for a post in my WordPress, I get a mySQL error:

    WordPress database error: [Table 'example_com.wp_exhibit' doesn't exist]
    SELECT ID FROM wp_exhibit WHERE post_ID = 11 and preview = 1 ORDER BY picorder;

    Warning: array_chunk() expects parameter 1 to be array, null given in /home/.dir/myusername/example.com/wp-content/plugins/exhibitimg/exhibit10p.php on line 475

    I have changed the name of my domain, but that's the error. So the table does not exist, but there is no Exhibit section in the modify post area that lets me create it. Perhaps I could create it manually knowing the structure, but it's supposed to be in the admin area so something must be amiss. So, I disable the plugin to get rid of the error... Any idea how to fix this, or is it a matter of WP1.5 incompatibility??

    From other posts in here, it appears that Exhibit is compatible with 1.5... I tried disabling all other plugins, still no dice.... I have manually added the Exhibit table in the mySQL database, including the "picorder" column, still no dice.... Adding the table did, however, get rid of the mySQL error in the comments page, so at least now I can keep Exhibit enabled without worrying about errors. I have tried going to Manage Posts and editing a post, the Exhibit section is not there. I've tried starting a new post, clicking "save and continue editing," and it's still not there. I have tried downloading "asy_exhibit.zip," and that didn't work so I put the "exhibit11d.zip" files back up. I'd really like for this to work, as it seems like a really neat and fitting plugin... Any suggestions??

    IMPORTANT .... i've fixed the problem.... the problem was that PHP was in CGI mode rather than apache module mode .... i found that suggestion in a little post on here somewhere, but i feel like it's important to know .... luckily, i have the best hosting provider on the planet. i logged in and changed it to apache module mode with a few clicks. the provider recommends CGI mode for greater security, but they list some drawbacks of it in their knowledge base:

    • Custom 404 pages won't work for .php files with PHP-CGI. Or will they? See n74's comment below!
    • Variables in the URL won't work without using mod_rewrite (example.com/blah.php/username/info/variable).
    • Custom php directives in .htaccess files (php_include_dir /home/user;/home/user/example_dir) won't work.
    • The $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] variable will return the php.cgi binary rather than the name of your script

    @ringmaster:
    Is there a detailed guide to using exhibit? I must be a complete dullard, because I can't seem to figure it out. I can get the thumbnails to show, I can get the first thumbnail to show big (too big actually) using <!--exhibit-->, but when clicking the second thumbnail, nothing at all happens. And that is where I'm getting stuck.

    If there is a guide (other than the readme) I'll be happy to try figuring it out on my own. But if not, could you clue me in as to switching pictures, and maybe sizing to boot.

    Regard
    Bill

    There is no guide to Exhibit 1.1.

    I have at least one person interested in helping write the docs for 2.0, though, so there should be more extensive documentation when that version is available.

    The one key place to look for settings is in the exhibitimg/exhibit10.cfg file, which includes all of the basic configuration options for Exhibit with a couple lines of description for each.

    Hopefully that'll give you a headstart.

    Ok, I think I've almost got it. I seem to have a pathing issue somewhere. The <!--exhibit--> seems to produce a broken image icon (see http://www.pdacore.com/?p=14). Any quick hints appreciated.

    I'm off to search throught the myriad files looking for a path statement.

    Ok, it wasn't a pathing issue, just the preview checkbox. I've also got the size right. Now it's just a matter of getting the picture to switch when I click it's thumbnail.

    Ok, I give up. I can't get the exhibited photo to change (I'm sure my lack of skill with PHP has something to do with it <sigh>). I'm back on the hunt for a photo blog that is easily integrated into my existing WordPress blog. :-(

    When it's done, please feed the docs into the Codex. The documentation for WP with all its plugins is getting too clutered. Stuff here, stuff there - it's impossible to find anything.

    I'm getting the same error as others:

    WordPress database error: [Table 'db.wp_exhibit' doesn't exist]
    SELECT ID FROM wp_exhibit WHERE post_ID = 1 and preview = 1 ORDER BY picorder;

    Can someone post a dump so I can create the database manually?

    I'm using WP 1.5 Beta and just installed exhibit. Everything works fine until I actually try to add an image to the post. Clicking the icon to add the image doesn't do anything.

    Exhibit can create thumbnails, show thumbs, etc., it just won't add the image to the post. Any thoughts?

    Also, I'm using Firefox 1.0, and I tried in IE with no luck.

    I had the same problem when I installed 1.1d on WordPress 1.5.1.3. Then I tried 1.1d (asy) and it was funktified... there was no readme file so I just figured it out myself, and once it was installed, it kept putting all my thumbnails on a new line which I thought looked tacky. So here's what I did. I deactivated 1.1d, deleted exhibit10.php and left everything else as is. Then I opened the 1.1d (asy) exhibit10.php file and added a string of coding right before the line that says get_currentuserinfo();:

    $incfile = 'wp-includes/pluggable-functions.php';
    $c=0;
    while(!is_file($incfile))
    {
    $incfile = '../' . $incfile;
    $c++;
    if($c==30) {
    echo "Could not find pluggable-functions.php.";
    exit;
    }
    }
    require_once($incfile);

    I do not take credit for this hack! I found it in someone's post in another thread. I would credit the person but I forgot who it was. If you posted that code and are reading this, thanks!!

    Anyway, I then put the hacked exhibit10.php file into the plugin directory and reactivated the plugin. It works perfectly now! Hopefully that helps anyone else who had a similar error.

    I am using Exhibit 1.1 with WP 1.5.2, and I noticed that if I password protect a private post and with the last_page=1, Exhibit images shows up for public viewing once the user clicks on the last page under the password box.

    Works fine for me so far.
    Installed the 1.1d version, and then overwrote the exhibit10.php file with the new one from the ASY release.
    Then applied the hack QueenC47 mentioned. Othervise i would get a fatal error crashing the entire blog...

    Now i can add images with no trouble.. think this is gonna work out great. Cant wait for new features to be added, like a admin panel to edit the .cfg file would be nice :D Easier to adjust stuff like size ect :D

    Hi all!

    I really really hope someone can help me now. I've tried to get help in here with different things this week, but no luck..

    I've tried the coppermine gallery, and the wp plugin for coppermine. It works ok, but I really don't need all the features which it provides.

    I've downloaded Exhibit, and it almost works! I don't have any errors, but when I upload an image and try to insert it to a post, It always try to pick the picture from my root folder. Here's my settings:

    # imagedir is the base directory where images are located
    # It must be located in your WordPress root (not your web root)
    imagedir='sett_bilder'

    (default was 'images')

    That folder is here: http://www.jorgent.com/sett_bilder
    I can successfully upload the pictures to that folder, but when I click on the "Insert full-size HTML" button, the code is this:
    <img src="http://www.jorgent.com/1886.jpg" alt="" border="0" />

    Why wont it point to my "sett_bilder" folder when I have that in my settings?

    Please help me someone!

    Thanks :)

    EDIT: I'm using Exhibit 1.1d

    I don't want to fuss (like I do now I guess..), but I really need help :/ And I don't want to make a new thread (though I have discovered that it's easier to get help that way).

    Never mind, I finally managed to understand the plugin.. But it took some days. I guess it's because english is a foreign language for me.
