Installed your Panda Image Gallery and really like it – it’s very well done.
I can upload straight images fine with no problems (jpg / gif etc)
But I can not upload avi or wmv files – goes through the upload and shows completed then a message appears
“No images in the gallery”
Could you advise on what might be the problem.
The gallery is at http://www.thesledshop.ca/gallery

I just tested the software to ensure that it is handling videos properly and it is so I’m going to rule out a software glitch.
In all likelihood the video files you’re trying to upload are exceeding the maximum file size restrictions for your php installation. You can attempt to place a php.ini file in the panda root and admin/ to override the defaults. Panda Image Gallery ships with example files in those locations named php.ini.dist. You can rename those files to php.ini.
The values you would want to change are the following:
post_max_size = 25M
upload_max_filesize = 25M
25M = 25 megabytes. Adjust these as you require.

Yes – I adjusted the settings and renamed the files and everything appears to work fine now.
Thanks for your help

Excellent. Also, stay tuned for version 3.2. I will be introducing embedded video support for mp4/flv file types. This will allow users to view files inside a flash video player rather than requiring a file download. Unfortunately wmv, avi, mov, etc are not supported in flash video players so those types will still require a download.

To update what was mentioned earlier, wmv/avi/mov/mpg files will play inside an embedded player (quicktime, media player, etc) when available.
I am trying your Panda software. One question, regarding User Maintainance.
What’s the USER_LEVEL parameter in $users array? What value should we provide?
Also, I noticed regardless of the user login, anyone could view the images. I thought the User Login would allow access only to selected logins.
Thanks very much

Panda Image Gallery does not currently support private galleries. all galleries are public unless otherwise restricted at the host.
There are two supported user levels: standard_user OR admin
Admins can manipulate any gallery, regardless of who created it, just as the owner would. Standard users can only manipulate galleries they created ONLY.
I like this gallery script very much but there is no way to show a little description under each picture. It ll be very nice to tell some details about the pictures.

You are incorrect. You can add an image caption which displays under each image. To add a caption you must be logged in and the owner of the gallery for which you’d like to caption images. Click the caption button under the image (yellow in official themes).

Now I can see that, excellent work. The best i have ever seen.

Here I installed it http://www.saudiqbal.com/main,gallery.html
Hello, I have a question. I like this very much, but is there a way to remove the login etc? I’m working for the website for school and I need such a script, but normal visitors shouldn’t see the login.. Is that possible?
I did this in my gallery http://www.saudiqbal.com/main,gallery.html
You have to login using domain.com/gallery/admin
after you login you ll see a button for changing password and logout.
I want to allow the br tag in caption but I could not find anything in the code to do this.
When will you be adding the administrator instructions to your website? Will be good to know how to set it up.
Also, how about adding Meta tags for SEO benefit? Maybe make the caption show up as Alt and Title as well.

Sorry about not getting the admin doc up. It’s gone far too long. I’ll try and get it up sometime today or tomorrow.
The SEO ideas are good. I hope to release v4.0 sometime in the next month or two. The 3.x code is frozen save security fixes. I’ll keep these suggestions in mind for the 4.x branch.

When you have the admin docs done, the cash is as good as in your hands. I will be paying you for the license. This software is very good. thanks.

Hope this helps.
Hi, I am testing Panda Image Gallery before purchase, I wanted to restrict registered persons who can add galleries and images to myself and the website owner. I made the admin folder secure, but it is still possible to register etc. The following instruction on installation:
7 ) You may enable user registration and register a new account via the web interface (enabled by default).
If you do not want to enable public user registrations you can manually add users.
See ‘users/users.inc.php’ for details on manually adding users.
how do I remove the default to allow registration please.
Chris Schiffner Reply:May 25th, 2012 at 9:11 am
In config.php locate $allowUserRegistration=1;
Change $allowUserRegistration=1; to $allowUserRegistration=0;
User registration will now be disabled.

Great works fine.
Hi, I have recently installed the latest Adobe Flash player 11.3.300.257 and as a result the button on the Upload Images no longer works.
Is this problem with the software please?
Jim Saxton Reply:June 9th, 2012 at 3:13 pm
Hi I have noticed that this is occurring in Firefox which is my normal browser, in IE the upload pop-up window does not load the three buttons Browse files, Clear List and start uploading. but I have managed to browse and upload in Google Chrome.
I hope this helps?
Chris Schiffner Reply:June 9th, 2012 at 4:13 pm
It looks like an issue with the uploader, FancyUpload. There is no update out right now, and I have no idea if there will be one released. If there is no update I’ll have to switch to a different uploader, which will take time. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Jim Saxton Reply:September 20th, 2012 at 10:49 am
Hi Chris any progress on uploader which works ok in Firefox and Google Chrome but not in Internet Explorer 9.
Hi Chris, I have installed successfully on a number of sites but on this particular site and page when you click Next you get the directory. This does not happen on any other images. can you please explain why?
hope you can help.
Chris Schiffner Reply:October 4th, 2012 at 9:08 am
You’ve run into a new bug. It’s because of the image named “Heart & Scroll 2.jpg”. If you remove the “&” from that image name this will not happen. I’ll implement a fix for the next version. Thanks for reporting.
Chris Schiffner Reply:October 19th, 2012 at 11:18 pm
I just wanted to touch base with you on this. I’ve completed a fix for this bug. This fix plus a couple of others will be included in 3.5.8 which I should be able to release this weekend.
Chris Schiffner Reply:October 20th, 2012 at 7:01 pm
3.5.8 is free & premium have been posted.
Hi Chris many thanks for the 3.5.8 update, I am puzzled as to how to update a premium edition I have seen your data on Upgrading but not sure:
1 Which file to download
2 And are the bullets you put still valid:
a) Make sure you do not overwrite the ‘./galleries’ directory.
b) Make sure you do not overwrite the ‘./users’ directory or the users file’./users/users.inc.php’.
C) Make sure you do not overwrite your configuration file ‘config.php’.
Your comments please.
Chris Schiffner Reply:October 21st, 2012 at 8:02 am
Hi Jim, You download premium upgrades from the same location you downloaded your original purchase, using the information that was emailed to you at the time of purchase. http://www.schiffner.com/index.php/purchases/
The upgrade instructions are the same.
Chris, just to let you know that 3.5.8 solves the problem of special characters in the photo name. Many thanks.
