Hello evryone

I have ss 2.4.5 installed (fresh install) and tried to install the famous image galery module
I have downloaded the files from GITHUB and named them :


It seems to go ok but when I create a NewImagGalery page nothing happens then when I refresh site tree the page is there but if I try to create albums / photos etc I get weird pages and not the usual clean upload page.
Also if I try to save the page I get an error

Does someone have an idea ?

This seems to be a big issue with Image Gallery for the last couple of releases. I had this problem with the GITHUB version and the download version from LeftandMain. It actually is messign up the database.

So be careful with this module until there is a fix.

Thanks for you answer

I'm quite worried now because I have another site that is using image gallery

OK, seems like the problem I am having is with IE8. When I do everything in Firefox, it works like a charm.

Has anybody else had problems with Image Gallery with IE8?

Any news in this matter?

I experience the same problem as servalman, but the interface returned some what after renaming DataObjectManager to dataobject_manager

I am running SS 2.4.5 with:

unclecheese-DataObjectManager-8808fda renamed to "dataobject_manager"
unclecheese-ImageGallery-dc4c750 renamed to "image_gallery"
unclecheese-Uploadify-e94f3c0 renamed to "uploadify"

from Github.

From a fresh install i can create a ImageGalleryPage and add a new gallery and images (only error i see is the "detach" and "delete permanently" buttons in the file upload dialog are colored boxes). At this point the page can successfully be saved.

When trying to change a ordinary "Page" behavior into a "ImageGalleryPage" behavior I get the "error saving content".

I seem to have had some luck with Image Gallery. Here is what I did. Please keep in mind when I write this, I am not a developer, just a minor tinkerer.

Clean install of 2.4.5
Loaded the DataObjectManager Module
Loaded Uploadify
Ran dev/build
loaded the image gallery module
ran dev/build

At this point I had countless probelms, including having the Upload button hidden behind a browse input.

Found a thread about earlier versions of 2.4 and updated with the following patches:

Still having problems, browsing the forum, found something I thought to be a longshot, but it is Renamed folders for each module to be:


And at least for now, it is working. Still testing and will update if I run across any new bugs. I hope this helps!

im having a mare with the latest version of image_gallery and ss 2.4.5
it all works fine locally, but as soon as i upload i have problems.

clicking "create image gallery page" does nothing. (emails an error to me saying: Error: Uncaught Exception: Cannot move /var/www/vhosts/ to /var/www/vhosts/
At line 422 in /var/www/vhosts/ )
if i refresh, the page appears, but if i try and upload an image it throws up a server error. and emails me a very similar error message to the one above.

looks like permission issues with image_gallery creating directories?
but my whole assets directory is 777.
AND ive even tried manually creating the directories myself and giving them all 777 but it still fails.

any help?!
