Topic: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

I'm new to this Picasa and this type of template settings for a Online Photo Gallery. I've been trying for a few days now to get this to work, however...I can't. I've read and read the instructions on how to set it up...but still no luck.

Now...here is the link to the Picasa gallery: http://picasaweb.google.com/10442457166 … ebGallery#

I've saved the username (not 104424571668394246512), and 'WebGallery' in the xlm.php file...still nothing.

Please help!

Let me know what more information you need from me.

I appreciate it!

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

The link you provided leads to an error 404 (page not found).
Also, instruction number 9 here: http://www.paulvanroekel.nl/picasawebal … tructions/ says for you to 'upload all the files to your private webspace'. Do you have your own web space? If so, make sure your host supports PHP and if you have uploaded the files already, please post a URL to where they are.

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

Sorry about that error, I had to change the member number to the persons name (corrinbarnett). Therefore, here's her link to the gallery:
http://picasaweb.google.com/corrinbarnett/WebGallery#

I do have my own webspace, all of the files are uploaded into one folder, and my plan with GoDaddy does support PHP. So here's the link to where the index page is, to view the other files just change the 'index' to whatever you want to view:
http://hhenterprisegroup.com/corrinbarn … index.html

Thanks!

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

Thanks for the links.
Check the locations for the files TiltViewer.swf and xml.php.
They should be in the extdocs folder alongside index.html.

Also, the index.html file should have a Doctype Declaration at the beginning.
Place the following code at the very start before the <html> tag.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
   "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

I did what you told me to do...still nothing.
However, what I'd like to do is embed the Tilt Viewer on a webpage...and I'd prefer not to embed it by using an 'inlineframe'.

Here's the temp site I'm worrking on: hhenterprisegroup.com/corrinbarnett

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

Going directly to .../extdocs/TiltViewer.swf brings up a 'Page Not Found'.
Unless the server denies direct access to swf files, I would expect to see the viewer there.

Also, if I click on 'Photos' on your temp site, the photos.html page references hhenterprisegroup.com/corrinbarnett/index/swfobject.js which does not seem to be there, either.

Edit:
Your xml.php file is now in place and seems to be generating the gallery dynamically from your Picassa images correctly.

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

Ok?...so I'm confused. Is it working for you?...because It's not working for me. If so, what link are you using to view the gallery?

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

No, it's not working.
Previously, it looked like the TiltViewer.swf and xml.php files were in the wrong locations (or the paths to the files within index.html were incorrect, depending on which way you look at it).

Now, it appears that the xml.php file is in place and working but the TiltViewer.swf file is still missing (or not working).

Are you perhaps uploading the swf file via Fetch?  Fetch has been known to cause trouble with swf files on upload.  If so, try another FTP client.

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

awesome!!!! I got it working!! I GREATLY appreciate your help!! Now...I have two LAST question!

1) Can I make the background transparent and/or a different color? If so, how?
2) Is there an html script I can use to embed this gallery?

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

1) Can I make the background transparent and/or a different color? If so, how?

You can make the background transparent with the Pro version (via the use of the bkgndTransparent variable).
With the Standard version, you have the use of the bkgndInnerColor and bkgndOuterColor varialbes, information on which can be found here: http://simpleviewer.net/tiltviewer/support/options.html

2) Is there an html script I can use to embed this gallery?

An alternative to the JavaScript embed method you are currently using can be found here:
http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … html#basic
(The example is for SimpleViewer but the concept is the same.)

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

Ok...what file am I suppose to be editing to change the page background color to white instead of black?
Also, I've changed some options to 'false' (such as the flip image, click to enlarge option), and it's still doing everything. Basically I don't to be able to flip the image to see the file name of the picture.

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

To change your options you need to edit your embed code in your html. Set showFlipButton to false to disable flipping, and set both bkgndInnerColor and  bkgndOuterColor to 0xffffff for a white background.

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

Ok...I did what you told me (Set showFlipButton to false to disable flipping, and set both bkgndInnerColor and  bkgndOuterColor to 0xffffff for a white background) and I still have a black background, and the images are still flipping.


Update: I got it! I forget to activate the line by removing the "//"
However, to make the background transparent, is it ONLY available with the PRO version?

BTW...THANK YOU for all of your help!!

Re: Setting up Tilt Viewer with Picasa

That is correct you need the pro version to set transparency.

3.1.1 HTML Transparency

TiltViewer-Pro can be used with HTML transparency so it can be layered over other HTML page elements. Check the 'transparent.html' example in the 'examples' folder.

Due to a limitation in the flash player, HTML transparency breaks Fullscreen mode. Therefore you should turn off the Fullscreen option by setting the 'showFullscreenOption' config option to false. To support HTML transparency, add the following lines in the TiltViewer configuration code:

fo.addParam("wmode", "transparent");
fo.addVariable("bkgndTransparent", "true");
fo.addVariable("showFullscreenOption", "false");
