New user here - be gentle. I have two questions that I could use some help with.
I have recently installed Zenphoto 1.4.14 using the one click install offered by x10hosting.com. I was looking for a simple gallery utility that would allow me to store my photos on my web space using my own folder structure, and then overlay a gallery as a way to drill down to find the URL of a specific photo, so that I could paste that URL between [IMG] tags in a forum post (spurred on by the demise of free 3rd party hosting at Photobucket, obviously).
Zenphoto seems to do this very nicely. If I upload my photos via FTP using Filezilla on my Macbook, then when I drill down from within the gallery the URL shows properly, in the form:
<website>/MyPhotobucket/albums/<folder>/<filename>. So far so good.
But when I use an FTP client on my iPhone (I tried two, FTPManager and FTP Client Lite) to upload a photo to the same location, the gallery will not display the proper URL. Instead it shows something in the form:
All I can think is that there’s something different about the flavour of FTP that the phone client uses?
Ideally I’d like to make my gallery Private. When I do that, after I enter my admin username and password and then drill down to a specific photo I’m then asked for another username and password, and the only one I’ve set up (the admin user) doesn’t work. I cannot view any photos. Worse than that, if I switch the gallery back to Public, any photos that I’ve attempted to view while the gallery was private still appear to be behind that password screen. No amount of clearing cache, reloading etc will give me access to that photo. Even using a different browser still brings up that password screen. The only way I’ve found to get access to that photo is to uninstall and reinstall the gallery software.
