Hi, I'm having issues with Image Gallery in ss 2.4.3 (image gallery build 522).

When adding new images to albums, the dropdown to select album always shows the default album, so I have to manually select the album I'm in from the dropdown... has anyone else been having issues with ImageGal in 2.4.3??

Hi Nick,

I also experience some problems with Image Gallery and SS 2.4.3. When creating a Image_gallery page the loader icon keeps looping and an error pops up without any message. I have uninstalled and installed dataobjectmanager, swfupload and imagegallery a couple of times but it did not work out.

I know my post won't solve your problem, but i hope one post will.

Can you guys replicate these issues on the demo site? (admin/password)

Hi UncleCheese,

I have just installed image_gallery on a live server even though it did not work on my local server.
On my localhost i saw the upload button but i could not upload any images and create a page with the image_gallery properties.

I have followed the steps below to install it.

- place dataobject_manager v521 in root
- place swfupload v401 in root
- dev/build
- place image_gallery v516 in root
- dev/build?flush=1

Now having it installed on a live server i cannot even see the upload button in the "files & images" section.
I have just logged in into your test environment and everything in your test environment seems to work.
I saw that the test environment was running SS 2.4. Does that mean i need to downgrade it or should image_gallery even work on 2.4.3?

Thank you in advance.

Get rid of SWFUpload.. I've deprecated that in favor of Uploadify:

Although either should work, Uploadify is much easier to troubleshoot, and may even resolve bugs that I didn't know about in SWFUpload..

It works now, but i receive an HTTP error when uploading a file. I will try to figure out what is causing that.
I have already disabled my mod_security in the htaccess, but that did not solve it. Thanks for your help so far.

You can turn on UploadifyField::show_debug(); in your config to help get an idea of the sever response.
