Alpine PhotoTile for SmugMug

Stylish and compact plugin for displaying SmugMug images in a sidebar, post, or page.

How do I find the Album ID and Album Key? The Album ID and Album Key are contained in the url of the gallery. For example, there is a gallery with the url “cmac.smugmug.com/gallery/2504559_f3ta9?. The last portion of the url contains the information we want:

2504559 is the albumID

f3ta9 is the albumKey (the key is case sensitive and you will encounter upper case characters in it)

I’m getting the message “SmugMug feed was successfully retrieved, but no photos found”. What does that mean?

This message simply means that while no distinguishable errors occurred, the plugin found your feed to be empty.

Can I insert the plugin in posts or pages? Is there a shortcode function?

Yes, you can display photos in posts or pages using what is called a shortcode. Rather than explaining how to setup the shortcode, I have created a method of generating the shortcode. Check out the Shortcode Generator on the plugin’s settings page (Settings->AlpineTile: SmugMug->Shortcode Generator).

Why doesn’t the widget show my most recent photos?

By default, the plugin caches or stores the SmugMug feed for three hours (see Caching above). If the new photos have still not appeared after this time, it is possible that SmugMug is responsible for the delay.

How many photos can I display?

The plugin can retrieve and display up to 200 photos.

If you have any more questions, please leave a message at the Alpine Press. I am a one-man development team and I distribute these plugins for free, so please be patient with me.
