Fix for Flickr Galleries Released
Posts found: 5
Hi General question for everyone.
What do people generally use as settings for size and resolution of the pictures they upload?
I want to try and find a happy medium between the quality of the pictures and file size for uploading, and also the size it then displays in tiltviewer when you zoom into it.
Do you generally use photoshop/lightroom, to resize/change resolution or keep them as they are and use svmanager rezize function?
Im running SVM 1.3.0 and the latest version of Tiltviewer Pro, (i've copied the tiltviewer pro file into the master folder) When i create a gallery, having the option enable sounds on, I dont get any sounds when i view the gallery, everything works fine, but no sounds of zooming/selecting etc.
I've checked just running the tiltviewer.swf and when i run it standalone i get sounds. But when i create it using svmanager I dont?
I see there is a preferences file created in the gallery folder, but unsure of the syntax to indicate if sounds are on or off in it. what should it read to indicate they are on?
Otherwise any ideas why I am not getting sound?
Ok all is solved now.
I think it was to do with the way i was increasing the two sizes and my understanding of which one did what.
I've now created a php.ini file placed it in my svmanager directory, and set the sizes as such
post_max_size = 100M
upload_max_filesize = 95M
max_execution_time = 600 (needed to increase this to stop it timing out as uploading larger amount.
it all now works, in the add images tab it shows 95MByte as the maximum size for one upload!
Hope this helps others who are unable to directly edit their PHP.ini
Thanks for that I'll look into creating the php file to see whats going on, reference the php.ini i created it was from scratch, so that maybe where the issue is as there is no reference to the sessions. Issue I have at present is that Strato dont allow access to the PHP.ini so copying from the original is a bit hard, but Im sure somehow i'll find a similar php.ini on the net somewhere, so annoying that hosting companies prevent accesss to these files.
With regard to image size settings, i can cope with 8mb for individual image size to some extent main issue is the overall upload size, bit slow and annoying having to drag and drop over and over when lots of files in a gallery.
Thanks for you info, great product by the way, just getting into it at the moment, but looking forward to customising more. Think it would be a neat feature still though incorporating some form of user account settings, so can do a setup for multiple users correctly.
I dont have direct access to my PHP.ini file using strato as my webhost, I have emailed them about increasing the numbers for uploading as at present it is set to 8mb.
However doing some research on the net, and in a link found on the Strato help pages, a suggestion was made about the ability to create a PHP.ini file that can go into other locations for specific domains and applications. I have created a PHP.ini file that i then placed in my svmanager directory, however when i try to log in to admin on my site i get the following error:
Fatal error: session_start() [<a href='function.session-start'>function.session-start</a>]: Failed to initialize storage module: files (path: ) in /mnt/web7/53/62/51959462/htdocs/Beaney/svmanager/classes/auth.php on line 44
If I remove the php.ini it works again, any ideas how i can use this PHP.ini get around? should I be placing it elsewhere or should I hope that Strato give me access or upgrade it for me? Bit annoying as I was with Lycos before and I could access it there, and as they shut down i transferred to Strato, which I'm regretting each day!
