THE SOLUTION (if you can call it a solution)

Ok, so Dani just got back to me, and I am shocked. For anyone who doesn't know this, and I didn't, "PowerCMS and PowerGallery 2 are not currently compatible".

So if anyone runs into this same problem, this is what needs to be done, and this is copied and pasted directly from my support ticket:

The issue is that you are copying the PowerGallery PHP code into PowerCMS. There is two issues with that:

1. You can't copy PHP code into a ckeditor because PHP is a server side code
2. PowerCMS and PowerGallery 2 are not currently compatible.

However, I have a work around that should let you add PowerGallery to PowerCMS.

Basically we will need to convert the PowerGallery PHP code to HTML before inserting it to the CMS area. As an example, if you have a PowerGallery code:

$pg_id = '1';
$pg_theme = 'dark';

and replace it to the following:

<input id="1" name="powergallery" theme="dark" type="hidden" value="/Users/dchankhour/Sites/test/powergallery/galleries/slideshow_dissolve/index.php" />

The Two important thing to match is the id and the path.

Once you have the html, you can insert that into the CMS area.

Then, you will need to replace the following files which i'm attaching:

1. WA_CMS.php in the WA_CMS folder
2. library.php in the WA_CMS folder.

Once you have done that you should be able to use PowerCMS to load Galleries.

I am attaching the WA_CMS.php and library.php that Dani provided me with. I need to let you know that he also edited WA_CMS.php to get rid of the edit function showed on the page if you are logged into PowerCMS, so please be aware that function has been taken out.

Anyways, this has absolutely cemented my decision to never again purchase anything else from WebAssist ever again.

I hope this can help someone else, that is the only reason I am posting it.
