    A fine list of photoblog, gallery, image viewer programs.

    Do they work with WP ? No idea, but there is a good range.

    Nice find, glacier-boy.

  3. I highly recommend SimpleViewer. The default controls are a little wonky (To create a gallery: add photos into "images" folder, customize the buildgallery script, run the buildgallery script, add image comments in imagedata.xml. To update a gallery: create the gallery again.), but it's in the early stage. There is a 3rd-part admin interface available, but I don't know how integrate it's development is with SimpleViewer itself. It really does look nice and has a simple, flash-based interface. It's literally like have flickr on your site.

    View the SimpleViewer site and check out the demos: http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simpleviewer/

    Just my 2 cents.

    I'm using the SimpleViewerAdmin interface and I like it a lot. It makes photo gallery creation and picture uploading very simple, and the quick configurations are a breeze. My only problem came when I tried to view the gallery I created because nothing but a blank page would come up. To solve that, I just copied all the files (except for index.html) from the SimpleViewer download into the SimpleViewerAdmin folder. Upon viewing the gallery afterwards, everything showed up.

    My only question is this: can I somehow integrate my WordPress template into SimpleViewer so that all my pages match? If so, how would I go about doing it (what files should I change)?

    I'm trying to do this with Version 1.5 and I keep getting stuck as well. I'd love to get some advice on it.

    I had it working, but it wouldn't get past the "loading data" section.

    I'm wondering if the problem is with the mod_rewrite rules. I put SimpleViewer on a "page" at /photo/people (I had to create a new template page to put the Flash Code onto)

    I'm tempted to just put everything back at the root of my server and just try to include the page. I wonder if the rewrite would still screw it up.

    My thing was getting stuck too .. although I havent integrated it to wordpress yet... Yet in earlier cases when the flash was getting stuck at the "loading.." Stage, I found the problem was that the flash file was not getting the imageData.xml file correctly. I had rectified this error by changing the flash movie load code to

    src="http://your.example.com/gallerydirectory/viewer.swf?imageData.xml" into the index.html page, thus ensuring that the flash file always connects to the xml ...

    Can you try this out, and if it works can you tell me how to integrate it to WordPress, I am a noob at PHP

    Has anyone solved this? I keep getting a big black square! It works fine on its own but trying to intergrate into WP seems to be a bit wonky. I really would love to use this if I can get it to match the rest of my site.

    i am trying to recall that there is a plugin that allows swf to be included in a WP "Page" or "Post". That may be the trick, use simpleviewer with that flash/wp plugin.

    trying out folderblog at the moment....

    Integration into WP would be ideal sounds very promising. Does SimpleViewer allow/enable image posting? ie. adding images into a post through some interface?
