Limited usefulness, once you get it running
By , for WP 3.7.1

The documentation for this plugin is broken on the host site and incomplete on wp. I had to tinker with settings for about two hours and it wasn't until I ripped open the plugin's PHP code that anything worked. Others may find this useful:

To connect the wordpress plugin to your razuna repository, you need to create a user that has admin privileges for the target repository (Razuna documentation refers to these as "Tenants" but that metaphor doesn't really work for me).

Installing the WP plugin is simple, follow the normal instructions.

The setup parameters for a self-hosted installation:

  • Hostname: localhost:8080/razuna (default). Notice:no protocol. You can also use a domain if not local.
  • Host ID: 1 (probably). Since you're self hosting, you probably only have one repository. This step is silly because the plugin should be able to find out what host id to use from the DAM path or vice-versa (grumble). If the host id is unknown, others have found it useful to try 0, then 1, then 2, then 3... but there's a limit to my patience. In the razuna/admin settings the list of "Tenants" shows the "ID" of the tenant in parenthesis - this is only place the ID appears.
  • DAM Path: raz1/dam (default). Notice: no leading or trailing slashes. This url bit is visible when you are visiting your repository. Unless you have screwed with your urls; it is something like localhost:8080/razuna/raz1/dam/index.cfm

In terms of functionality, this plugin is only useful getting one or two images from your DAM into wordpress. If you want to make a gallery, there are more full-featured wp gallery generators out there than this one. If you want to make a gallery from your razuna, the widget builder is still more efficient.
