Dear All

I have tried the existing Picasaweb module and found it to be a bit wanting.

I also tried the image_gallery (and required modules dataobject_manager and swfupload)

Whilst incredibly powerful, the image_gallery still demands that user upload and sort their pics. This seemingly innocuous task is too much to ask of many non computer-savvy editors (and thats most of them I am afraid). Uploading to Picasa seems to be well within the grasp of normal users. Furthermore the bloat caused by the extra modules almost ground my system to a halt. Reloads of the editor could take minutes.

I therefore refactored the PicasaGallery.php to use jquery.pwi and you can see this working in very prelim form on Note that the users have not yet altered the titles. This is highly configurable and desperately easy to use and will even work with hidden galleries.

If anyone is interested I will upload it. Its only one php file and you can put a fresh jquery.pwi into /jsparty/jquery/plugins yourselves!!

i have installed your picasa module but can't get it to work. ./dev/build tries to install the module every time its run, even after it has been run. when i create a Simple Picasa Gallery page, it save and publishes just fine, however when i visit the page i get an error:

"Server error

Sorry, there was a problem with handling your request."

any advice on how to fix this? i'd really like to get this working in silverstripe.
