Default Galleries

I've been trying the last 20 minutes to create a User gallery and upload files to the general Tau photo gallery. I can't get either to work. The process is very unclear to me. All I can say is it appears to do group uploads fine, but when assigning to a gallery I get a "database error".

I'm not the smartest guy, but the process on the current galleries is really different from most boards.

Is it possible to use a different system or at lesat see if the current one functions correctly?

TIA

Hello,
People have already uploaded photos to the galleries, and Coppermine is a well-known company, they wouldn't distribute a faulty software version.. I'm sorry to say this (As it is really annoying to hear) but it sounds like it's an error on your end.. What exactly happens when uploading photos? You choose a picture, upload it, click continue, fill in the details about the photo and choose what album to insert it into, and then it says database error?

That is correct.

I certainly acknowledge(d) user area as a possibility. Perhaps it is happening become I use a Mac, although I used Firefox?

I still find the process much more different than what I have used on similar systems such as megabbs, vBulletin, or Manila/Radio use for their gallery creation.

It could be Firefox, when I uploaded last time, I think it was using IE
Although, it may have just been the database stuffing up at the time..

I use firefox, the galleries work for me.. maybe, as De.mAce said, it was just the database messing up at the time you were online, it sounds like. Also what gallery software do you like the most? I doubt it'd happen, but it's possible that I'd convert the galleries to some other software package.

The database itself should be platform/browser-independent. It's most likely running on a Windows web server, but exactly because they're a decent outfit, it should have no issues with either Macs or real browsers. Databases are tricky, fickle things to get set up and they don't always work magically. Databases can become corrupt, there is a whole host of issues that crop up with them...user-friendly self-maintaining wonder apps they are not.

Thank you all for the replies. I know the client shouldn't impact the server-side, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to mention what I was using.

I suspect it was/is a database cockup but it was still frustrating trying for what seemed an eternity (probably really only 15-20 minutes).

For me the main stumbling blocks are creating the different galleries and trying to distinguish between your personal galleries and the ones created by the admins.

FWIW, I prefer PhotoPost PHP.

Cheers!

I agree that creating personal galleries are hard to create, although it's easy to tell between personal and admin created galleries, isn't it? What theme are you using? Also PhotoPost PHP does look good, although it's more than I'd wish to spend :P

I think my main problem was my gallery editing controls are at the top of the page while the universal gallery controls are right above my personal gallery controls. I could tell by the drop down in the top right I only had one gallery.

I guess you won't be running MegaBBS' gallery functions either. ;D

I'll cope and thanks again for the replies.

Cheers
