Photon doesn’t work under EasyPHP?

Photon require cURL, a php library which is installed on most server. However it is not on EasyPHP. To make it works, it is hovewer
very easy. Just click on EasyPHP menu->Configuration->Extensions and click on php_curl.

My pictures with a higher resolution overflow the frame of my theme. Can I resize them automatically?

Yes, to do that, just go into phpwebgallery admin menu and give a maximum width in “default display” (for default and for the users
parameters). Choose a width that suits your theme and them do a database maintenance and synchronize additionnal informations on your pictures
to update the width value.

I have drop-down categories, it doesnít seem to include the menu into my theme?

Sorry, I did my best but, for now, photon canít work with drop down category list. You will have to change your theme.

It doesn’t work!

Please search my forum ( first and try to find your solution in the already answeared questions.
