I followed all the steps described here:
https://jalbum.net/forum/thread.jspa?threadID=40855

Yet, I still do not see any widgets on my album at

Anders will need to dig into this one. Everything appears to be correct - widget code is present on the page, album is listed on the profile page, URL's match, widgets have been selected.

I did a quick test with a dummy album, and the widgets are working, so it's not some new problem in the browsers, or on the jAlbum server. I tried hosting my test album both on jalbum.net and on my own domain, and no problem there, either, so it's not a cross-site origin problem (though that may become an issue someday soon).

(Anders - the only odd thing I notice is that, for someone who's had an account since 2009, lex2 has a rather high user ID number. But I can't get into the admin console to investigate any further.)

Thanks for the quick response, I will wait for further analysis.

I don't think Anders has seen this yet (and we're heading into a weekend), but in the meantime, you don't happen to have two different jAlbum accounts, do you? When you upload the album, make sure that you're signed in to the jAlbum application as lex2, and not with some other account name.

I am signed into lex2, both when creating the album, and when I added the album to my account.
I did upload the album using WinSCP.

Try deleting the album from your profile page - no need to delete the album itself - just the thumbnail on your profile page.

Then add it again, but with the SSL URL (https):

Did you add the album manually to your profile page?
It looks like this "URL" was added:
http://www.fcdegender.nl/wp-content/uploads/Digitale expositie 2021/
That shouldn't be something jAlbum would give. There should be %20 instead of the spaces.

If you copy the URL from your browser when you view the album and add that, it should work better.

Then one could discuss if the form should allow "URLs" with spaces, or if those should automatically be converted to %20...

Ah, yes.

The old automation conundrum: to encode, or not to encode. If the user has already encoded the URL, encoding it again produces a mess. Elsewhere, I've adopted a simple rule - if the URL contains a percent character, it's already encoded, so don't do it again. Otherwise, do it!
