Topic: Deleting SimplerViewer Gallery and Changing Gallery ID Name.

I haven't seen this in the support docs and I was wondering if anyone knew about it. I'd like to delete old unused SimplerViewer Galleries. I don't see an option to do that in the Wordpress admin area for the plugin. Also does anyone know if I can rename the Gallery IDs to be more memorable? Is this a capability of the Pro version? I'd be glad to pay for it if so. Thanks!

Re: Deleting SimplerViewer Gallery and Changing Gallery ID Name.

At present, you are unable to delete redundant galleries through the interface.
However, I have already contacted the developer with this suggestion as a feature request for a future version.
In the meantime, you can, however, delete the gallery_id.xml files in the wp-content/uploads folder (thereby removing the entries from the list of galleries). However, I ran into trouble when trying to trash a post which included a gallery whose xml file I had deleted manually, ie. it didn't work!  Make sure you trash the post first.

(This information applies to the Standard and Pro versions.  There is no difference in this respect.)

Edit:
There is currently no safe way to rename galleries.
