[resolved] WP-Simpleviewer: Reordering images & page title problem (3 posts)

    All went great with installing the galleries. Thanks again for pointing out the width dimension error, which solved my problem.

    Now I have two other issues:

    1. When loading the images, even adding them in a specific order, they're out of order, especially those images that have a matching detail. How can I control the order of how the images display on the site?
    See: http://katemissett.com/wordpress/galleries/canopic-jars

    On the WP-SimpleViewer support page, instructions on how to reorder images for WP 3.5 or later states: Reorder the images (if necessary) by going to the 'Insert Media -> Media Library' section, selecting 'Uploaded to this post' and then dragging and dropping the images into the order you require."

    I've tried this, but nothing happens. It might be b/c my site is static, not a blog, so the rerference to "Uploaded to this post" might not apply. Could this be the problem? If not, how do I reset the order?

    2. The gallery labeled "Vessels/Plates" is mistitled "Canopic Jars" on the right side of the page above the thumbnails. I've tried a couple workarounds, such as deleting and adding the title, then resaving, but nothing's worked. How can I fix this?

    Thanks for your help re the above.

    (1) If using pages instead of posts, you should be able to edit the page containing the gallery, click the 'Add Media' button and then go to 'Insert Media -> Media Library -> Uploaded to this page'. All images attached to the page should be displayed as thumbnails and they can be reordered by dragging and dropping. Just close the media window with the cross in the top right when finished. (Do not click 'Insert into page'.)

    (2) The gallery on that page has a gallery_id="6".
    You should be able to go to 'SimpleViewer -> Manage Galleries', edit Gallery Id 6, change the Title and save the change.
    If this does not work, check the permissions on your 'wp-content/uploads/' folder to ensure that they are not read-only.

    Alternatively, you could edit the 'wp-content/uploads/6.xml' file manually.
    You may need to clear your browser's cache before reloading the gallery after making the change.

    I'd read the drag and drop instructions before, but I hadn't selected "Uploaded to this page," so the feature didn't work. Your clear explanation of the steps were so easy to follow, I was able to make the changes easily and quickly.

    Same with labeling the page. I didn't think to check the "Gallery Title" field. It turns out the Canopic Jar title was duplicated when I created the Vessels/Plates gallery, but I never thought to check this, which was all I needed to do. Donk!

    Thanks again, for your concise instructions and your quick reply. This is a great gallery, with wonderful features and the support is fantastic!
