WordPress Photogallery Woes!

August 6th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Howdy! My B’day turned out to be not so bad after all. A few people did visit the blog and left their comments.

I am trying to find a kickass WordPress Photogallery plugin but no luck yet.

Installed AwSomPixGallery but it kept giving me error. I dont think its compatible with the latest version.

Tried WPG2. Now that required me to first install Gallery2. Its not as quick to install as WP. 11 installation steps later I had the gallery installed. Figured out a way to mass upload images but hated the theme.  Next step activate the Plugin in WP but the blog went for a toss! So have deactivated it for the time being and gonna start my hunt for the perfect photogallery again.

Worse come to worse i am just gonna write my own! 🙂

Done some changes to the theme. Added our custom footer which appears on all the ithub websites. Also added a random image display on the sidebar. Am gonna search for one where images scroll or change every few seconds.

If you do know of a good Photogallery plugin for WP (non flash/ajax) drop me a line with the link.

Am out of here for now.

ps: I think i am the only one on this earth who has not yet seen The Dark Knight yet!

    AH, looking good! the footer is nice.

    and I was looking forward to making a random quote thing, it seems you have it already. thats cool! Is it a WP thing or did you make it?

    Well I have synced my Facebook albums with WP. No Ajax, no flash, simply imports the albums I want to share and shows them nicely. Very nicely.

    And, you need to catch The Dark Knight in theaters, its worth your time. Skip Startup Saturday, go for TDK.

    The WPG2 with Gallery2 works like a charm. If you activate and use the Sirius theme, then WPG2 will even pick up elements of your WP theme and display it on the gallery page. The best thing is that if you’re hosted on Dreamhost, Gallery2 is a one click install, so no stress for installing it either.
