My theme doesn’t support Widgets?

If you dont have a widget ready theme you can still enjoy this plugin.
Just install the plugin as above described and activate it. Then edit your sidebar.php and add following code.
< ?php iperbox(‘USERNAME’, 4, ‘GROUPNAME’, ALBUMNUMBER, 0, 0, SIZE, SIZEL) ? >
Which means:
USERNAME (your Ipernity username)
4 (count of pictures)
GROUPNAME (leave ” for no group)
ALBUMNUMBER (Number of Album 0=show latest pics or 5 digit album number i.e. 72535
0 (use lightbox = 1 for yes, 0 for no)
0 (show only Slideshow = 1 for yes, 0 for no)
SIZE (75 for thumbs, 100 for normal preview)
SIZEL (560 for medium, 1024 for large picture in lightbox)

How can I change the look of the widget?

If you want to adjust the look of the widget. put something n your stylesheet like:
.iperbox { padding: 2px; margin: 2px; border: solid 1px; color: gray }

Help I get an error

After activating the plugin all I get is an error message:
fatal error: Call to undefined function: simplexml_load_string() in /wp-content/plugins/iperbox/iperbox.php on line 40

  • The plugin needs php 5.0 or higher.If you still have php4 running, you will get this error and the plugin does not work. I’m sorry but I haven’t found a solution for this yet as the function I use is not implemented in php 4. Please upgrade to php 5.x
