@George - Love it. I'll implement it soon.

@BMS - Are all the errors you're talking about happening on the front end, not the CMS? I don't plan on supporting IE6 in the CMS unless I get an overwhelming number of requests for it. What do you mean when you say the second album isn't viewable? If you only have one album, the gallery page should go directly to the view of the first album, otherwise, if there is more than one album, it will give you the Albums overview where you can choose the album from a list.

I'll look at the IE6 rendering issues, assuming they're on the front-end. By the time this module is in a stable state, maybe it will finally be a thing of the past.

The errors are in fact on the front end.

If I create an instance of an image_gallery page with a single album it works fine.
If I the add a second album, when viewed on the site it does indeed correctly show
the overview information for both albums, but when I click on the first one no
images show up. If I click on the second one images show up fine. If I go into the
cms and delete the second album the first album becomes viewable on the front
end again.

Sounds like something is configured wrong. The DataObjectManager demo site is always running the latest version on 2.3, and as you'll see, it's working properly with multiple albums. Use the admin section to compare your set up to the demo. The creds are admin/password.

If you don't see anything different, make sure you've checked out the latest version from SVN for dataobject_manager and image_gallery. Delete the Gallery module all together.

If possible, post a link to your admin with temporary creds so I can see what's going on.

I will retry it again to rule out server issues, and I will try everything you have suggested.

I figured out the style issue with IE6. It relates to its handling of the <ul> tag

I did some web browsing using the search criteria "UL tag horizontal" and found an
article that helped.

I modified ImageGallery.css as follows

#pagination-imagegallery {border:0; margin:10px 0 0 0; padding:0;clear:both; display:inline;}

#pagination-imagegallery li{
border:0; margin:0; padding:0;

Having it in both places could be redundant. But it appears to work. It has not affected output in Firefox. :-D

Thank you UncleCheese!
Very nice module.

Now, I don't want to be boring, but just to understand, why does image_gallery depends on swf_upload ?
what does this swf_upload module has that you need/don't want to implement ? Besides upload of course :p

I am very busy right now finishing some SilverStripe projects and as soon as I have time(I expect this weekend) I will read the code of the modules to try to understand.

I am just asking this because I am a very hard core UNIX user, and not always I have flash available.
When I click on upload button, and then a java-script pop-up with no caption appears, I click on and nothing happens.
I will make a video with the error today night.
I noticed this in:
FreeBSD(i386) 7.1/Firefox3 or Firefox2/Flash 9
Mac OSX 10.4.11/Firefox3 or Safari or Camino/Flash 10

I just discovered that in Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger, downgrading to flash 9 work!!!
But I don't know if this specific to flash 9, because in my FreeBSD desktop I use flash 9 and it doesn't work too.

Did anyone else had this problem too ?

The swfupload module is a separate module I built for robust bulk uploading in the CMS and on web forms. It allows multiple uploads, upload progress, file type/size filtering, and more.

I plan on making the image_gallery degrade gracefully to a standard file input eventually, but for now I'm just targeting the 96% of users who are Flash-enabled.

It should work in all OS's in Flash 9/10, with the only confirmed exception of FF/Linux, which I'm working on patching.

If you're having a hard time getting the uploader to work, first test it on the demo site at and then try the SWFUpload demo on Google Code and make sure it works there.
