    @Praveen,

    I just upgraded to ver 1.8 but my widget doesn't work anymore, i mean both slideshow and showcase. I have it on my sidebar and in dropdown menu selecting a gallery. But front-end shows [Gallery not found], I went to admin>>manage gallery, everything is there, the gallery and the vids are all fine.

    The widgets work just fine on ver 1.7. And I didn't make any changes at all. Didn't have any new plugin or anything else either.

    Any idea how to make changes?

    Thanks,

    ^^^sorry I forgot to provide the links for you to see:

    My theme is Andrina Lite. My site is at this url:

    http://www.bennyfeng.com/about/

    You will see the first widget on right bar "Hot Videos" showing [Gallery not found].

    Please advise how to make the CVG widget works again. Thanks.

    Please check with your webserver hosting provider to turn this on. This is not related to plugin.

    I have same problem like sc0rpiongirl, on videos category on my site, i don't see my gallery videos (in admin there is gallery and 16 videos), but only [gallery not found].
    I also tried to put it again, but it still doesn't show up.
    When I add single video it works.

    My site with videos: http://fotom.webd.pl/strona/filmy/

    Thanks for your work!

    I created a list of videos the first working correctly, to create the second list of videos I get this error:
    Task Queue failed at step 5: Could not be loaded playlist: htttp status 404, not found

      I checked the xml file -> Test-playlist.xml

    it appears only

    <? xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"> <rss version = "2.0" xmlns: jwplayer = "http://developer.longtailvideo.com/trac/" xmlns: media = "http:/ / search.yahoo.com / MRSS / "> <title> <channel> test </ title> </ channel> </ rss>

    to manually edit the xml file works correctly the video list.

    Note: XML file is not created correctly with the video list with cool video gallery plugin

    how to solve this problem

    @ Patrixer

    Which was your previous version of CVG? Have you done any database changes manually?

    I'm not getting this issue in my dev environment. Just wanted to replicate the issue once.

    Could you please put forward the exact steps you performed to create the first playlist and second playlist, means the way you created two galleries. What all operations you did through admin panel.

    Could you check whether the checkbox is checked for each video in gallery details.

    I don't know if I understood you...
    Here is video player setting: here
    Here is video gallery setting: here
    When I open gallery in admin (manage gallery) and choose my gallery, I have only one checkbox named "exclude" but it's empty (not checked) for all videos.

    Greetings,
    Patrick.

    Please cross check the gallery Id and shortcode. Paste it here.

    Also check the database structure in table wp_cvg_videos whether you have a column with name exclude.

    Turn off random and check from gallery settings. If you are ready to provide me admin details, let me know i can share you my email id.

    Shortcode is: [cvg-gallery galleryId='1' mode='showcase' limit='20' /]
    And I checked database, but in wp_cvg_videos I don't have exclude column.
    I will try to uninstall and install again your plugin if you don't have any ideas.
    If it still doesn't work, I will give you admin details.

    I added same gallery with showcase, playlist and slideshow option, and on playlist I have

    Task Queue failed at step 5: Playlist could not be loaded: XML could not be parsed or playlist was empty

    And I checked database, but in wp_cvg_videos I don't have exclude column.

    This is the issue, the plugin is not installed properly. A new field is added in 1.8v which is missing in the installed version.

    Let me check on this issue. You could uninstall and try it once again.

    Update: Could you check on one more thing. What is the type for video_title field in database. Is it varchar or mediumtext?

    Praveen Rajan

    @PR

    When updating the sortorder of videos in a gallary, the 'sort by' -Video ID and -Video Date seem to do the same thing (which is not strange because the newest video also gets the highest ID). Can you reverse the 'sort by -Video Date' option so the latest video will appear first? Thanks!

    Hello again, I will reinstall plugin now.
    video_title is varchar for 20 chars (varchar(20)).
    Thanks for help, I hope reinstall will work!

    Please try this till a new version is released. Hope that helps :)

    cool-video-gallery\admin\gallery-sort.php

    Replace Line No: 91

    $videolist = videoDB::get_gallery($gid, true, $orderBy, 'asc');

    with

    $videolist = videoDB::get_gallery($gid, true, $orderBy, 'DESC');

    Uninstall the plugin and install it again.

    May I know how you upgraded the plugin?

    Ok, everything done. Now, after reinstall it works like a charm.
    By the way, I found a bug(?), you can see it here

    And I upgraded plugin like that:
    Admin Panel -> plugins(1) (so I knew that something was updated) -> I saw that your plugin was updated, so i clicked changelog -> after reading changes, I clicked update plugin (I'm not sure but It was in right corner of popup window with changelog) -> new page opened with inscription: "downloading cool video gallery ...". Thats all.

    Big thanks for your support here!
    Anyway, have you ever thought about translating your plugin ?
    If you are planning that, I can make polish translation.
    My e-mail is: kujawa.patryk@gmail.com.

    Once again, thank you.

    Good to know :) I think it is some CSS issue with the theme you are using. I'm not able to see that in your live site now.

    I will note your email id for future reference :)

    @PR:

    Seems to work fine for now, although the sortorder in the Dashboard and on the frontpage are not the same. But that's ok for now! Thanks again.

    The plugin upgrade did not happen properly. See the above discussion on the same. Database of plugin is not modified accordingly.

    If you are having access to MySQL database, I can provide you with query statement to fix this issue.

    You can either uninstall the plugin completely and do a fresh install or you can modify database to make the required changes.

    What exactly do you mean by reinstalled? Did you mean reactivate?

    @Praveen

    So I just caught up with the discussion and I did as suggested, now things seemed fixed. Just a recap with what happened and what I did so as for others who have similar problems to get it faster without getting confused.

    My problem with 1.8 was either shortcode or widget will show [Gallery not found] even my gallery is there and my videos are there. This problem is indeed because of the SQL database not being properly updated during the direct upgrade from WordPress interface. The newly added "excluded" column was not added when I checked MySQL. Had I have your query statement to run it'd be much easier for me to fix it, except, I directly uninstalled then reinstalled, which eventually rebuilt the database and make things right again.

    For those who have the same problem, before uninstalling, make sure you backup your sql (go to MySQL, select cvg_gallery and cvg_videos respectively then export them and save them.) You might also want to backup your video-gallery folder as well, as un-installation will remove that folder.

    You can't just delete the plugin to fix this problem. Because delete and plugin and reinstall it doesn't fix the database table. Only uninstall then reinstall will get things back on track.

    The easier way is to ask Praveen to provide a SQL query statement to directly run in MySQL so as to add the "exclude" column without uninstalling the CVG then reinstalling, because that surely takes too much time, especially re-uploading the video-gallery folder back, if you have a lot of videos, re-uploading them would take a lot time as you could imagine.

    Hope this helps with others who have the same problem.
