How did insert this? It doesn't look like a jAlbum bridge block.

Here's the tutorial:

If nothing appears if means the other site blocks the access for external sites (but that looks different), and follow the instructions in the other thread linked above.

Perhaps you disabled the Block Editor? This plugin works only with the default Block Editor. There are some plugins that can disable the Block Editor or Editor plugins, like Elementor, which overwrite the default functionality.

I have found the settings and can manage them.

What do I put in the bridge text box, when I publish it just comes up blank.

What's the exact error? Did you put the Album URL in the top box?

Things to check:
  • The album should contain JSON files (the album database). With many skins it's automatic, but with those skin doesn't use it, you need to regenerate (Make + Upload) the album with "Settings / Advanced / Matadata / Generate JSON file".
  • Always use the URL of the top level album page in the Album URL box!
  • If the browser's console (Press F12) complains about "Cross Origin Request" (CORS) violation, you have to enable the access to the album file on the album site by adding these lines to you .htaccess file on the server's top level page (or the album's top level page)
