Attempted to update my previous Turtle sites over to Tiger with disastrous results.
Currently Link: http://2017.photowebs.us is my latest attempt, cleared out all previous signs of Jalbum from the source location and destination the rebuilt the structure fresh with Tiger skin with pretty much all default settings for now, files showing source directory structure and current .jap configs attached.
Have read all the documentation and forum posts with no luck, really hoping am missing something obvious.
To see previous attempts in various stages the problems begin with the Link: http://2008.photowebs.us and continue to the noted 2017 site and really hoping not to have to revert back as trying to have consistency from Link: http://photowebs.us to present, an yes http:/photowebs.us has the same issue.
per sample from the index.html the HTML appears URL is not encoding correctly:
It's not really clear to me why you're trying to do this with the "master album of albums" approach, rather than just a normal album project. Unless I'm missing something, you could have a single Photoweb2017 album project with three folders in it - PanoramicPhotos2017, Photos2017, and Videos. If you then let jAlbum process the subdirectories (your existing settings prevent that), you would end up with an album in which all the links work properly.
In short, you would create and upload your three subordinate albums, each as a separate, stand-alone album project. Then you would create your master album, adding three webLocations to it. Each webLocation would point to the final, absolute URL of one of the uploaded subordinate albums.
Understand the confusion, end goal of the 3 panoramic folders is to alter the displayed photos in different dimensions such as your panorama page in single column and in both the panorama and vertical format 3 columns and a more boxed to rectangular dimension for the boxed greater than the average photo yet not to the panorama limits resulting in 2 columns.
If there is a better way I am very open to the idea, end dimensions
Ah, yes - jAlbum doesn't provide an easy way to use different settings for different folders, especially when it comes to image bounds. So, an "album of albums" is probably the easiest approach.
In that case, then, using the new webLocations is definitely the approach to take. The key to making it work is to create and upload the subordinate albums before you tackle the master album. The master album will need absolute URL's to point to, like http://example.com/panos and http://example.com/vertoramas.
The links are correct, but the images (thumbnails) are not on the server.
I haven't tinkered with Tiger, but you might want to try reverting to default processing settings. I think the skin is not "seeing" the webLocations properly. In particular, let jAlbum "process" subdirectories, even though there aren't any:
No, that doesn't seem to be the problem. My quick test album works, even if those settings are non-standard.
I think it may be simpler than that - the thumbs directory does not appear to have been uploaded. On your photowebs.us site, I get 404's when trying to access the thumbnails. Don't try to second-guess the uploading - the album needs everything in the output directory.
Edit: When looking at the project in the jAlbum Explore view, are you seeing thumbnail images for the webLocations, as in the attached example?
EditEdit: As always, if it looks OK in local preview, but fails after uploading, that almost always means that you haven't uploaded all of the required files.
Everything works again.IF when you create the web location file you be sure both the link to the site has the full URL and the thumbnail has the full URL path also.
Now Link: http://photowebs.us master site working correctly as is Link: http://2017.photowebs.us and am working my way through getting the other sites functional and then will work on synchronizing the look and behavior.
No, that's not correct. The thumbnail for the subordinate album isn't part of the subordinate album. The master album can't plant the thumbnails it has created on some remote site. The thumbnail is part of the master album, so a relative URL is correct. Take a look at the page source code of this simple demo: https://jgromit.jalbum.net/Webloc Demo
In fact, if you're using Tiger to make the master album, it shouldn't be pointing to a thumbnail at all. Tiger uses the slide image, because it treats webLocations like folders, and needs a larger representing image.
