PowerGallery showing the loading image

After a few attempts to add PowerGallery to my local server, I decided to start a new site to install same.

The problem that I have is
1. clicking preview in Admin and
2. viewing the gallery from my gallery page
only show the loading image; no gallery

I have checked the port number which is 80.

Everything else works fine.

Operating system: Windows 7
Server: Wamp/PHP/MySQL

Please Help!

This is similar to my subdomain issue

See my thread:

showthread.php?t=10161

Are you trying this on another domain within your hosting account and receiving this loading page. Just curious if your having the same issue as I.

It did work on the main domain name on for the hosting for me though.

using localhost

Hi Ernie,

I have the site setup on a local server. The site was empty when I installed the package. I dutyfully followed all of the instructions without the result. Erased the site and started over again in total 3 times.

Although you seem to be having issues with the domain name, I feel that this should not have any influence if the server parameters are the same.

I understand, but my issue still persists

Hi ben306986, thanks for following up on the issue. I feel the same way. Not exactly sure what is happening. Everything is on the same hosting plan so the settings are the same, but for some reason the PG is not working on any other domains that are not the main one on the hosting account when the files are uploaded and installed for me.

It seems I am not the only person to have this "Loading Only" issue though. I have seen a few posts now to this loading issue but no posted fix other than one fix which was specific to that persons setup. That link is below which includes an updated file to switch with another. It looks like Jimmy Wu was able to find a solution to this problem. If Jimmy Wu, when you have a moment, can look at my issue and let me know if it's similar and provide a solution I would appreciate it.

Spat the Dummy

I placed Power Gallery on an online server and it works!

Which makes the product useless to me. I want to first develop it on my localhost and once I am satisfied, I will upload the site.

I am going to use the technology that is used here:
china.html

It is even free of charge!

I am not sure how using it successfully on a live server makes it useless? That sounds like its the way to go since you have it working. Ideally PowerGallery is best run on your live server since it sets everything up for you including the database and file structure.

It should still work on your localhost, but when you are to go live its best to run the installation wizard on your live server instead of trying to then move the files up manually. There are ways to do it, but we recommend running the installation wizard since that sets up everything for you and checks the server requirements and things like that.

PowerGallery provides a full administrative backend to upload and manage your images in addition to all of the front end galleries we include. The spry demo, while nice, looks like its a front end demo only.

If you can reply with the direct link and PHP code PowerGallery gives you on the Add to Site admin page, that might provide some more details on any path issues that might be occuring.

Thank you for your reply

I do all of my development on my local system and after testing I upload the site to the live server. I find this the most comfortable way of working.

The Add to Site admin page gives me the following URL addtosite.php

As said, evrything on the local server works fine with the exception of showing the actual gallery.

The Choose Design page has this URL choosedesign.php

Then when I click on Preview the everlasting loading symbol appears. The URL for the preview is index.php?gallery=1&theme=light

Thanks again.

The loading symbol could mean a javascript error or it could mean the images aren't loading. If you have Firebug, can you look in the console and see if any errors are reported? It would also be good to look at the raw XML (mediarss.php) and the HTML for the gallery page (your grid+fullsize link) and see if the image urls are correct.

Firebug reports

Failed to load source for: index.php?gallery=1&theme=light

Thank you.
Ben

I have found the problem area and have got the gallery to show as follows:

I changed this line in index.php $gallery = get_gallery(get_mediarss_url('gallery=' . $pg_id . '&thumb=62c&full=782p'));
to $gallery = get_gallery(('gallery=' . $pg_id . '&thumb=62c&full=782p'));

Although I believe that this is not a fix, at least it gets us on the right track.

The XML looks ok to me, looks like the paths are correct. Can you look at the HTML using view source in your browser? That is what I meant. Since the XML looks ok, I am curious what the final HTML source looks like as well.

That line in index shouldn't be changed. It needs the get_mediarss_url part since that is what actually gets the XML which feeds the gallery.
