This post demonstrates how to start with WP Photo-Album-Plus

After installation and activation of the plugin do the following:

  1. Go to the Photo Albums -> Settings admin page, and press the button: Do a quick initial setup.
  2. Open Table 0 by clicking on the line with: Click on me!.
  3. Answer the questions by selecting ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in the Setting column.
    If you want a brief explanation, press the questionmark [ ? ] in the Help column. If you really do not know what to answer, just skip the question.
    After selecting ‘yes’ on setting #99, the page will be reloaded. There is no submit button, all changes are immediately processed.
  4. Go to the Photo Albums -> Album Admin page and press the button: Create New Empty Album.
    You will enter the Album Admin page for the album you just created. You can change the name and description here. Leave the other fields ontouched for the moment. There is no submit button, the changes you make are ‘auto-saved’. Near the bottom of the screen you see: Remark: Album 1 is not modified yet that will change into: Remark: Description of album 1 updated, etc.
  5. Go to the Photo Albums -> Upload Photos page and read the explanation in the yellow box.
    Note that there are 3 ways to upload photos: selecting multiple at once ( Box A ), selcting multiple one by one ( Box B ) and zipfiles that contain one or more photo files ( Box C ).
    Use Box A and upload more then one photo to the album you just created.
    If there is only one photo in an album, it is assumed that the album is not ment to contain photos, but to contain child albums only. Therefor the photo will not be shown in the album, but will solely be used as a cover photo. You can change the minimum number of photos, so you can have changing coverphotos for such albums. For more info: see the Settings admin panel Table I-A4: Photocount treshold.
  6. Now make a post or page with e.g. the title “Photo album”.
    Use the Text editor and enter in the text area simply the text: [wppa][/wppa] and save the post or page.
    If you use the Wysiwyg editor, press the Album cover icon: album and select at Type of Gallery display: A generic albums display. Tick the box Create new style shortcode and press the button: Insert Gallery

View the page or post you just created and you will see something like this:

@ bronek: You are absolutely right.
I put it on the wishlist

bronek wrote 9 months:

why when you comment photo in widget "Comments on Photos" show 2 or 3 same photo which last coment by other users. I think it must be change. For example when 9 users comment the same photo in this widget will be 9 thumbnail this same photo.

Dit is mijn lieve hondje Kimmy, gefotografeerd toen ze nog héél klein was ( twee maanden ongeveer ).
Ik ga elke dag zeker vier, maar meestal vijf keer met haar wandelen.
Vroeger was ik een hondenhater - ik ben een echt poezenmens - maar, ik kan je - en óók Midas Dekkers - vertellen dat je versteld staat van hoeveel je van zo'n beestje gaat houden! :smile:

Ok forget my previous comment. It now works brilliantly !!!!! It was a conflict with a 'related posts' plugin, which has now been deleted :) Thank you for WPPA+ I'm running WPMultisite and buddypress. Everyone now gets their own albums and it's so much easier to implement than nextgen.

You use a different lightbox plugin. Ask the lightbox plugin builder.

Hello again :) Long time since we talked :) I am using the lightbox thing from the plugin. When i click the first large photo it opens in lightbox ok. when i click next photo and click the large image to go to lightbox view again, it just shows the picture outside of the website, it goes directly to the picture path on my server. Can you please see that?
