    I have been working on a Photolog which uses WordPress and would really like to know what people think of it. The features of this Photolog include:
    - XHTML compliant code
    - Simple once click addition of photos, auto thumbnail and resizing
    - Extraction of EXIF information from original photo and saved as meta
    - Easy installation, as easy as installing WordPress
    - Simple, clean design and look
    - Simple navigation
    I still have some more work to get the archives and the paged navigation work correctly, but here is Pictorialis - My new Photolog.
    This code and template will be shared once it is ready.

    Archives and paged posts are done. Please check them out. I am now working with a better thumbnail navigation scheme.

    I tried it at this URL: http://ara.faithful.nu/photos/
    I published an image and received this error:
    Warning: imagejpeg(): Unable to open '/home/faithful/public_html/ara/photos/wp-admin/thumbnails/thumbbm2.jpg' for writing in /home/faithful/public_html/ara/photos/wp-admin/post.php on line 35

    The image didn't show up at all.

    I was wondering, can you provide upgrade script? Which can upgrade from a normal wordpress with picture attached to some posts to photo blog?

    Ara,
    You need to give permission for writable to post.php I believe. I did it and I bypassed it but then I recieved this error when I tried to upload picture & publish:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: read_exif_data() in /home/forcefor/public_html/photo/wp-admin/post.php on line 105
    And line 105 on post.php is:
    $exif = read_exif_data ($img1);

    I fixed some of the problems, but I still get this error even after I made post.php writable by the server
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: read_exif_data() in /home/faithful/public_html/ara/photos/wp-admin/post.php on line 105

    Okay, thanks anyway. That's a big disappointment...

    Lizard, if your PhotoLog can be done without needing exif, it would be great. I will wait for such version. From my previous posting I meant - lets say you have currently running weblog which contains photos, there is no need of upgrading the wordpress? Or there is? I mean simple php script which can "migrate" this wordpress to your photolog, based on wordpress. ;)

    Take a look at Exifer instead of using PHP exif functions:

    I had the same errors as ara - no GD for me apparently !

    I should have posted the errors here earlier :)
    I think the errors have to do with the jpeg file not being in the /tmp folder...

    I tried reading post.php without much luck ;)

    Also, is it necessary to keep the default entry?

    ara, can you come to the IRC channel? I will be able to work through things quicker (#wordpress on freenode)
    PS: it is not necessary to keep the default entry.

    Um, I'm lost. I have no clue what an IRC channel is.

    Does Coppermine uses GD?
    I'm not so sure about "exif" but I am able to use Coppermine on my webpage.
    What IS "exif"? :)

    @NuclearMoose and others facing some issues, I just finished adding this to the readme, so this might help on here as well...
    Some Issues raised with the install on the forums and possible solutions:
    If you are getting this error or similar:
    Call to undefined function: read_exif_data()
    You do not have EXIF compiled with php. The fastest solution is to download this:
    http://weblogtoolscollection.com/b2-img/pictorialis_no_exif.zip
    I will be working around this problem with a built in library soon.
    If you are getting this error or similar:
    Warning: imagejpeg(): Unable to open '/your/directory/thumfake.jpg'
    for writing in /your/directory/wp-admin/post.php on line 35
    First, for some reason, making post.php writeable makes a difference (which is really weird)
    My understanding of the problem is that even though you might have the directories set to 777
    your webserver does not have permission to the stuff inside the directory.
    I suggest that you delete the wp-admin/images and wp-admin/thumbnail directories and recreate
    them manually with the 777 permissions (or 766 would work as well). If that does not work, a quick
    email sent to your server admin will fix the issue.
    If you are getting this error or similar:
    Warning: imagecreatefromjpeg(): '/tmp/php42MvDb' is not a valid JPEG
    file in
    /home/virtual/site97/fst/var/www/html/photoblog/wp-admin/post.php on line 16
    This error is saying that it did not complete the upload to the /tmp directory
    of your webserver or the file got deleted before the script could pick it up. I am
    looking into this issue to see if I can find a workaround for it.
    Have fun, I have already seen a couple of very nicely done photologs from this.

    Would it be possible to post a thumbnail of the current photo on a different site? What I'm thinking of is a thumbnail in the menu section of my main blog which would always show the current photo on the photolog. That would be really cool.
    I'm looking forward to trying this out.

    Sure. You would have to use a newsreader script. The excerpts are the thumbnails, so it would work just fine.

    Hey LL : upload_tmp_dir is set to "no value" in your photolog (and weblog) too!!
    So I don't think thats causing my install to break. I had to take down the install cause accessing that page gave me a 500 server error.
    Just thought I will let you know.

    I have followed all the passages of the installation and when creating first post the page post.php appears in target. I have seen the directories wp-admin/images and wp-admin/thumbails and the images have been raised correctly by wordpress. I do not understand it why appears the page post.php in target and has not been created post? It would thank for your aid. Pardon my English because I am Spanish. Thanks for everything

    I tried to get mine to work. It' s at 2fargon.com/pic, and have some surprising results. :)
    I could post two pics, but I could not post pics that are 1600x1200 pixels. All pics were .jpg files.
    The pic that did not post was 333 KB in size, in case that matters.
    What could be the reason, I wonder?
