WP Photo Album Plus
[resolved] Newbie Question - Can't Get Template to Work (3 posts)

    I am using the SilverOrchid Theme and have WP Photo Album Plus installed. As far I know, everything is installed correctly...I am able to upload pictures, manage albums, create a Photo Album page, and use the sidebar widget. However, I cannot figure out who to modify my page template (and home page template) to include a album.

    The help file says to insert <?php wppa_albums(); ?> and it should work. I have tried this, I have tried %%wppa%%, and I have tried the scripting on the website tutorial...I cannot get anything to work. If you look at the site, http://www.mvranews.com, you will see where I am trying to insert the album (at the bottom where it says 'Pictures%%wppa%%'. The exact code I inserted into the template is:

    <?php wppa_albums(); ?>

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    It is a theme thing. The front page does display so called 'excerpts' that do not render shortcodes and/or wppa scripts.

    Create a page or post with the wppa shortcode ( e.g. [wppa][/wppa] ). This will do it.
