Would you please advise how to have the page with the jAlbum Bridge gallery with the same layout of the WP site?

WP site: http://morniroli.it
Page with the jAlbum gallery: http://morniroli.it/album/

Thanks

Fabio

None of the linked sites contain a jAlbum bridge projector. If the site runs under Wordpress just install the plugin (Plugins -> Add new -> Search: "jalbum"), and give the album's URL (/album/) in the post editor's popup box, and you're good to go.

It's a jAlbum album, not a jAlbum bridge projector. The box can showcase this album within your Wordpress site.

Here's the working model:

1. You create an album with jAlbum
2. Upload the album to your site
(so far so good)
3. Install the plugin into Wordpress (Plugins / Add new / Search: jalbum + Install + Activate)
4. Open a page or post in Wordpress and click the "jAlbum box" button
5. Add your album's URL
6. Update (or Add new)
7. Update (the post too)

Now this will insert a projector box on your Wordpress page, showcasing the images from your jAlbum album.

Laza,
I did exactly all those steps.

Nevertheless I do not know what you mean for box and projector...

What I did was to insert the jAlbum Bridge plug-in into a new WP page.

My original question was: How can I keep the design/layout of my WP theme in that page?

Thanks

Fabio

There's no trace of jAlbum bridge boxes on your wordpress page. The jAlbum album can be tweaked through the "Design" section in jAlbum but that's limited to colors and background images. It's not the jAlbum album that can be customized to follow the site design, but the projector box (what's missing on your site) adapts to the page design, that is it fills up the available space, uses the same fonts, etc.

Please give a look to the attached screen shots and let me know what is wrong. I could also send you my WP ID and password if you like.

Thanks

I see now :) - the screenshot has helped a lot. You named the post the same as the album's folder. It seems in this case the normal HTML page takes precedence. Now I guess it's simpler to change the post name, but you can also move the album to another folder - any of these should fix this.

No way, I continue to see the message about the json file. The file is there in the album folder and the MIME is correct.

Note, "public_html" is not part of the website. It's the folder on the server that holds the website content, so the correct album URL is: /jalbum/

Sorry to say that there is some confusion with this jAlbum bridge.

You told me to put the album in that folder public_html, see attached screen shot. Please let me know where to upload the album folder generated by jAlbum.

Thanks

Yes, you must put the album in the public_html directory on the server. But public_html is not part of the URL to get to the album. The album URL is http://morniroli.it/album/.

But there's still a server configuration problem. This link returns a "404 - Not found."

http://morniroli.it/album/tree.json

But the file is there. Only your web host can tell you why this is happening, and only your web host can fix it. This problem has nothing to do with jAlbum or Wordpress.

I do not know why but I see the tree.json file responding, see the screen shot

Please just to close this story, tell me the following:

1) the url for the album that I prepare with jAlbum and that I have to upload to the WP server hosted by my provider

2) the url that I have to write in the jAlbum Bridge interface (edit projector)

3) the correct MIME of the tree.json file

Thanks

This has now been fixed. Thirty minutes ago, it was not working.

1) the url for the album that I prepare with jAlbum and that I have to upload to the WP server hosted by my provider

The album URL is http://morniroli.it/album/

2) the url that I have to write in the jAlbum Bridge interface (edit projector)

The same: http://morniroli.it/album/

3) the correct MIME of the tree.json file

The best is application/json, and your server is now providing that MIME type. So that has been fixed, as well.
