  • Hi, this is a great plugin and I got it working easily.  My question is: how functional is the flickr code?  I don't see it on my menus, but I went to the flickr setup page manually and seemed to get a small part of it working.  Is my installation bad or incomplete?



  • @Dracolyte - the flickr code is not supported. It is currently commented out from the menu system. 

  • @Tidypics Team - Thanks for the great plugin. Had some trouble with the "?" and "Admin has not created Album settings" errors.

    In addition to the change data file permission (to 777)  and increase php memory in .htacces, I checked "Show EXIF data" Tidypics Administration to make it work.



  • @tbenkel - saving the settings should have been all that was required.

  • @ Tidypics Team -Thanks for the great pligin.

    having problem in view slideshow !.Is it any possible way to  resrtict the slideshow view for only a particular album (or particular user's) not all the photos uploaded to the site.


  • I means,when i clicked the view slideshow for a particular album it's lined all the photos uploaded to the site.

    is there any possible way to view only the paricular album in slideshow view.

  • hey Tidypics Team! thanks for this great plugin ... i have one concern:

    is there any way i can disable right click on the pictures? ... i  want to refrain members from saving pictures.


  • hi.. Great Pluggin..

    i ' ve query that only admin can able to create albums it also should be viewable for every user..

    and disable create albums by user..

    Please find me answer..

    Thanks in advance..


  • @luxman - no one else has that problem. Are you sure?

    @Hassan - no

    @umesh - you could change the menu system so the create new album button is only available to admins

  • @tidypics thanks for the great plugin.

    i have problem regarding adding tags.whenever i add a tag to a pic it shows somewhere else instead of the position i created it and a additional box is seen. i am using v1.7.  

  • River issue with member profile linking on image contribution.

    When members contribute pics, their name isn't a hyperlink to their profile. When they contribute an album, the member name is an active hyperlink. I've looked in views\default\river\object\album and ...\image and both create.php files appear to have url syntax calls. Anyone venture a guess as to why the album creations works, but the individual one doesn't? 

    Awesome plugin. Thanks for contributing. Stoney.

  • uploaded, installed, enabled, settings saved, no problems.

    Brilliant work guys.

    Much appreciated.

  • @coolsam001 - no one else has reported this. If you turn off your theme, does the problem go away?

    @Stonehenge - you are correct. We'll fix that in the next version.

    @Trajan - thanks

  • @Tidypics Team - Any chance you could just post the code snippet that would solve the linking issue in create.php for the individual picture post? That's really all this plugin needs.

    TIA, Stoney

  • Hello,

    First of all, thanks for this great plugin! 

    I have an issue with the comments/riverdashboard when using your plugin. I uploaded a picture (all users can see it). A friend of mine posted a comment on this picture. I was informed by email because I set up the notification on my content to be emailed to me. When I logged back on my site, I could not see the notification of his comment on the riverdashboard. I went directly to check the picture's comments and there was nothing there as well. I commented myself the picture. My comment was successfully posted on the riverdashboard. I contacted my friend, who confirmed to me that he was seeing my comment and his comment, both in the picture's comments and the riverdashboard. We tried one more time (he commented, I commented): still nothing on my side. I can see all my comments but I can not see his. And he can see everything. Weird, isn't it?

    I'm using Elgg 1.7.1, Tidypics 1.6.6 (as per manifest).

    Does someone have encountered such a strange behavior?



  • Hello,

    Forget my previous comment. My problem was not with your plugin but more with Elgg itself. Let me explain: my photo album was set as private. My friend is the administrator of the site. As an administrator, he could see my album, its photos and even write some comments. But since my album was set as private, the comments would not be added to the riverdashboard, nor I could see them when looking at my own photos! But, and I think this is a Elgg's issue, the notification system sent me an email with the comment. My guess is it's because I have asked to receive an email for all the comments on my content. So why should I receive a notification but not being able to access to this comment. And for all users, be aware that your contents are "private" for everyone (even for you if it's comments on your contents) but not for the administrator!

  • Just upgraded to 1.7.1 no problems,thanks!

  • How can i edit the upload form to provide only five pics at a time instead of 10 pics. please reply if any one know this thing need urgent because 10 pics give error some time .


  • @Stoney - the change is in our svn repository and queued up for the next release.

    @ghumanz - views/default/tidypics/forms/upload.php - look for the for loop with 10 in it

  • I wonder, how to resize the height and width of the album thumbnails on the widgets ...?  I need to make them smaller and appear side-by-side, instead of one after another.

  • Resizing from tidypics administration doesn't work.

  • @Tidypics Team:

    Curious about the roadmap...

    I had posted a suggestion on the google group a while ago regarding a feature "Your favorite images" that would allow for each user to mark personal favorites posted on the site. I'm wondering if this feature might get implemented at some time - if yes... when? :-) I had made the same suggestion to the izap_videos plugin developers and they have implemented it now - at least in SVN and so far it only works in Elgg 1.7... My users would like the option to mark favorite images and videos. And I'm sure if they can do it with the videos they will ask "What about pictures?" next...

    Another issue: I had asked a while ago about the image ordering of the latest images on the user's profile pages. I believe the problem is that tidypics tries to include 4 images in one row but only 3 fit in. Is there any fix for that planned for the next version of tidypics yet?

  • @iionly - favorites will be a part of Elgg 1.8 including Tidypics

    The widget issue has been corrected in svn. It will be a part of the next release. Thanks for bringing it up again.
