WP Photo Album Plus
[resolved] Upgrade broke plugin (31 posts)

    I had all my albums working correctly with thumbnails linking to "the single photo in the style of the slideshow". Since upgrading the plugin, none of the thumbnail links work anymore. The thumbnails are still there, but they link to a blank page. The large images don't show in the slideshow anymore either.

    I tried to go back to the older version of the plugin but it seems all is broken no matter what.

    Please help!

    I seem to be having the same problem. Since I updated the plugin this morning, when I try to open a gallery or start a slideshow, it only reloads the gallery page.

    Thanks,

    I tried it with the updated plugin, as well. It still is not working for me, either.

    Pls tell me the exact content (shortcode or script) on page nycha photography archives

    Pls check Table IX-A3: Allow WPPA+ Debugging, then i can see much more.

    OK! Shortcode is

    and I have checked Allow Debugging.

    Thanks.

    @jblue:

    If you have checked the Important update notice on http://wppa.opajaap.nl/changelog/ and it still does not work, please try with all other plugins temporary de-activated. It may be a conflict with another plugin. If this still does not help, update to the next version ( 4.9.10 ), available today or tomorrow. I will put some more diagnostics in. Please keep debug switch on.

    OK - I checked that notice and did that but I don't know if Control+F5 does anything on a Mac. I also deactivated ALL plugins for a moment except this one and it still did not work, so I don't think it's a conflict.

    I do hope your next update clears this up as we really want to use this!

    Thank you.

    If you came from a version prior to 4.9.3 and you have a customized wppa-theme.php in your theme directory, you will have this problem.

    If so, please remove the wppa-theme.php from your theme directory. This will fix it.

    A check on this is done and a one time warning is shown at update time. You may have missed it. There will be a better diagnostic on this in the next version.

    If you run Table VIII-A2: Backup settings, you generate a settings.bak file in your personal depot directory. e.g. wp-content/wppa-depot/admin/settings.bak

    Please do so and mail me the file at opajaap at opajaap dot nl

    @ stereosis: Then you must delete the plugins/wp-photo-album-plus/ directory withn content by an ftp program manually.

    HI... I can delete these files But I;m afraid the two galleries that photographers uploaded photos will be deleted as well and their voting database.is it possible to restore these two existing galleries and database after the upgrade
    I can send you the ftp details and wp admin details if you think that i will make a cock up by just deleting files and upgrade the plugin
    thanks angelos

    You may always completely destroy the plugin ( i mean the directory wp-photo-album-plus and its content ) and re-install. Even running the action in Table VIII-A1: Setup is allowed.

    YOU WILL NOT LOOSE ANY PHOTOS OR ALBUMS OR COMMENTS OR VOTES OR IPTC OR EXIF data, as long as you keep the directory wp-content/uploads/wppa/ untouched and stay off from the database tables wp_wppa_albums, wp_wppa_photos, wp_wppa_comments, wp_wppa_rating, wp_wppa_exif, wp_wppa_iptc. So, go ahead.

    If you cant fix it, you may send me admin login data and i will have a look. Please try yourself before. If required, mail to opajaap at opajaap dot nl referring to this thread, because my memory is leaking a bit.

    Hi - so sorry - I didn't realize the update was available and I was busy last week. I did just update it though, and I deleted the wppa-theme.php file as directed, but no, it's still not working over here. I do see there is a WordPress update - I'm a little wary of trying that lest it break something else, but I don't know what else to do to make this plugin work again for me...

    @jblue: You still have an outdated wppa-theme.php in your theme directory.
    Add &debug to the addressline and you will see in RED:

    [WPPA+ dbg msg: WARNING: customized wppa-theme.php is out of rev. Expected version: 4-9-10 found: 4-8-7]

    It is in your theme direcory wp-content/themes-ai1ec or in wp-content/themes/nycha-grey/.

    If you deleted it from wp-photo-album-plus/theme/ you deleted the wrong one, re-install the plugin...

    oh!! goodness - I thought you meant the theme directory within the plugin. I deleted the wrong one. Fixed that - and now it's working!! Thank you thank you.

    Only issue now seems to be that the name of each photo is showing up 3 times in the thumbnail view on the album. What can I do to fix that?

    Can not reproduce, cleanup the computer ( clear browser cache etc. )

    Hi I'm having a similar problem. The images in the slideshow will not display. I am using the latest version which I just installed after deleting the previous version entirely. The site is located here:
    http://thefrontpagefirm.com/photo-gallery/

    The shortcode for that page is:
    [wppa type="slide" album="#all" size="auto"][/wppa]

    It's also not showing on the homepage right side widget but is showing in the footer on the home page:
    http://thefrontpagefirm.com/

    Kindly advise! Thanks in advance.
