Topic: Pro 2.2 does not show all images unlike free version

I have a flicker image gallery with this tag, "Puerto Princesa underground river".

The simplevierwer 2.2 free version (download from wordpress) is showing 136 images, but when I replaced the swf file with pro version, only 1 image is displayed.

Can you advise what is wrong with pro 2.2 version which I just download from your server?

Re: Pro 2.2 does not show all images unlike free version

What's the gallery URL?

Re: Pro 2.2 does not show all images unlike free version

The settings are all the same for tag, "Puerto Princesa underground river" for both.

With pro 2.2, one image is displayed.

With free version 2.2, 11 images (not 123 images as I said earlier) are displayed.

I believe something is missing in the pro version

Although it looks like you have installed and activated WP-SimpleViewer v2.2.0, neither of the pages you have supplied links to contain SimpleViewer galleries.
Please check your links and post back with the URLs to your galleries. Thank you.

Sorry, I though preview can be seen by public. I published them now.

Re: Pro 2.2 does not show all images unlike free version

Your gallery uses the SimpleViewer-Pro option flickrGroupId.
This option is not used by SimpleViewer-Standard and so your Standard gallery searches all Flickr images for your specified flickrTags and currently returns 10 images.
Your Pro gallery searches within the designated group only for your specified flickrTags and returns a single image.
Check that your flickrTags are correct and that the images you wish to display are tagged correctly.
Please see here for a description of all available SimpleViewer-Pro Flickr Options: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … tml#flickr

Re: Pro 2.2 does not show all images unlike free version

For either SimpleViewer-Pro or standard, the search result is not tally with direct search result from the  Flicker website.

I demo a search with "Puerto Princesa underground river" from the Flicker group at its URL http://www.flickr.com/groups/pilipinas/

The return search result is 136 images.

Why the big difference for the image quantity for a same set of tag?

By logic, the same search result should be displayed by SimpleViewer-Pro with the same tag. In pro case, only 1 image is returned.

Re: Pro 2.2 does not show all images unlike free version

I am not entirely sure how the search from the page you linked to is performed (case sensitivity, tag mode, tag separators, etc.) as the only available variable is a text field.
However, it is possible to perform an API search using Flickr's own service on this page: http://www.flickr.com/services/api/expl … tos.search
Entering the group_id = 52240061231@N01 and the tags = Puerto Princesa underground river as the only parameters returns a single image, consistent with the SimpleViewer-Pro result.

Re: Pro 2.2 does not show all images unlike free version

Probably the algorithm used in the web page is different with the pure tag search.

Any way to get the same web result with simpleviewer pro because 136 images are preferred?

Re: Pro 2.2 does not show all images unlike free version

I have not been able to replicate the search returning 136 images using Flickr's API.
This may be due to the fact that when using tags within an API group search, only one tag is supported, as documented on Flickr's flickr.groups.pools.getPhotos page: http://www.flickr.com/services/api/flic … hotos.html

tags (Optional)
    A tag to filter the pool with. At the moment only one tag at a time is supported.

This is also mentioned in the Flickr Options on the SimpleViewer-Pro Config Options page.

The search you performed from this page: http://www.flickr.com/groups/pilipinas/
... perhaps used all four words as individual space-separated tags (something that cannot be replicated by Flickr's API).

Re: Pro 2.2 does not show all images unlike free version

I understand your explanation.

Even only 1 tag is searched at a time, flickrTagMode="ANY" should display all search results for multiple tags.

Seems simpleviewer pro option flickrTagMode="ANY" cannot do that, it still combine multiple tags as one tag like flickrTagMode="ALL".

Re: Pro 2.2 does not show all images unlike free version

Even only 1 tag is searched at a time, flickrTagMode="ANY" should display all search results for multiple tags.

Due to the Flickr API handling only a single tag when performing a group search, setting flickrTagMode (to either 'ALL' or 'ANY') will have no effect on the search results.

Seems simpleviewer pro option flickrTagMode="ANY" cannot do that, it still combine multiple tags as one tag like flickrTagMode="ALL".

Using multiple tags in SimpleViewer is achieved by using the flickrTags options and separating tags with commas, eg:

flickrTags="cats,dogs"

With a group search, only the first tag ('cats' in the above example) will be used.

Seems this is flickr API limitation.

Yes, indeed.
