I'm evaluating jAlbum with WordPress and jAlbum Bridge. I just cannot get it to work, despite carefully reading all the how to's and posts here on the forum. It seems like it ought to be super easy but here I am, hours later, tearing out what little hair remains...
Welcome to the wonderful world of modern webpage security! The attached screenshot tells part of the story. Your page is a secure page, using https. But your "call" to the album is insecure, using http. Browsers these days won't let you do that. Change the URL in that plugin to https, and you should have better luck.
You'll also need to make sure both your Wordpress page and your album are on the same domain. Guess what! Turns out that g3wgv.com and www.g3wgv.com aren't regarded as being the same thing.
(BTW, the page has a similar problem loading a Google font - the call is insecure, using http, so the font won't load - and with a couple of other resources having nothing to do with the jAlbum Bridge issue.)
Well blow me... it works! Thanks Mr Gromit, that was a great help. I sort of knew these things and thought I had tried them all but obviously not in the right order... or something.
It's all a bit different from my yoof when soldering irons and oscilloscopes were the order of the day and web sites and all that nonsense was all still sci-fi. Keeps the ol' grey matter active though, which can't be a bad thing.
The latest version of the plugin (1.1) changes the album URL to https: if called from a https: page. They don't have to be on the same domain, but in that case you'll have to give CORS permission (Cross Origin Resource Sharing). If they're on the same domain it's enough to use the root path: "/album"
The plugin is showing a preview of the images in the album. It doesn't have any of the functionality of the album itself. That's why, for example, the plugin would always look the same, no matter what skin you had used to make the album. It's just grabbing some images to lure the unsuspecting site visitor to visit the real album, where he is overwhelmed by the anticlimactic nature of the whole experience.
