Title: Photo Albums on Goosemose - Currently Down. Please Stand By.
Post by: Goosemoose on December 31, 2004, 03:37:00 AM
Okay guys the Photo Albums are up and I made a few changes to them. Everyone gets 5 megs of storage but people who donate at least $3 a month (pictures are bandwith intensive) get at least 10 megs of storage (hopefully will be 50 soon). Please see the link at the top of the page for more information on donating. Soon I will have random pictures appearing on the front page of Goosemoose.com as well. Any forum member can view peoples' photo albums and comment and rate pictures. Please check this out and test it!  ;D

The goal is to raise enough to get the server on the $175 a month plan. If you have donated in the past and want a photo album, then please email me. As always, positive comments and constructive criticism are encourage. I want to make this site as easy to use and good looking as positive and constructive criticism always helps!

Storing your photos that you link in threads will speed up the forum as pictures will not have to be drawn from outside servers, which are sometimes slow.

As always, positive comments and constructive criticism are encourage. I want to make this site as easy to use and good looking as positive and constructive criticism always helps! Ask all questions here!

EDIT: The albums are currently not working, and will not work until we are able to upgrade the forum and move to a new server. Thanks for your patience. - Suebee

I was able to create an album with no problems, and it said my picture upload was successful, but when I finished it told me the "picture would be added as soon as it was approved"???  is this normal or did I do something wrong???

Hi Sunwolf,
 You actually did everything perfectly. I set the system up so that people who have under 50 posts have to have their pictures approved before they appear in the albums. I did this to prevent some idiot from posting porn in his album (basically a troll). Just send me a pm when you upload photos and I'll approve them until you hit 51.  ;D

Post by: Goosemoose on February 16, 2005, 12:53:08 AM
I just updated the top post, the info was out dated.

SunWolf, I approved your pics. I put a few of them in the Rittens section as I wasn't sure where you wanted them.

There were tons of people who had pics waiting to be approved. Sorry guys!

Thank you!!!  I guess I need to quit reading so much and get to posting so I can get over 50  ;D

Any idea why when I try to use "I have my own picture" choice for an avatar, and enter the URL to the picture in my album, all it does is default back to the premade avatar I had chosen earlier???
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Goosemoose on February 16, 2005, 02:37:51 AM
Right click on the picture in your photo album, select properties, then copy and paste the url that's given there and use it.
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: SunWolf on February 16, 2005, 11:21:24 AM
??? No go...tried it many, many times and still it won't work.  I can change which "premade" avatar it shows, but no matter what I do, when I click "I have my own picture" and paste in the URL it just ignores the change.  Funny thing is though, when I click "change profile" it reloads with "personalized" in RED TEXT, but the image doesn't change.  OH WELL,  the premade ones are cute, so I guess it doesn't matter.
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Goosemoose on February 16, 2005, 12:43:05 PM
Is the url you are using: http://www.goosemoose.com/coppermine/albums/userpics/15917/Badger3.jpg ? That's what it should be. You probably have to put your password in the last field as well to get it to change.

Post by: Kathleen on March 03, 2005, 03:40:13 AM
Is there a way to file a photo in more than one folder without uploading it multiple times? For example, could I put the same picture into the "Rats:Closeups" folder and into one of my personal folders without having to upload more than once?
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Goosemoose on March 03, 2005, 03:45:13 AM
Unfortunately not in this version of coppermine. They are talking about putting it in the next version though. When you upload a file and you get the boxes that list the file name, you can select the same file in 2 lines, then it will ask you which folder you want to put each pic.
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Kathleen on March 06, 2005, 04:32:48 AM
Another question...if I get the photos from another URL (rather than uploading them from my computer), then I move the photos to a different URL later, will my Goosemoose album stop showing those photos? For example, if I had a photo at www.fakesite.com/fakephoto.jpg, then put that URL into Coppermine to add the photo to my album, then moved the original photo to www.otherfakesite.com/fakephoto.jpg, would my Coppermine album still show the photo? I guess what I'm really asking is whether the album actually uploads the photo or just displays it with remote linking.

I really like the feature and I hope more people start to use it!
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Goosemoose on March 06, 2005, 05:49:41 PM
If you use the URL feature it's actually saving the photo on the goosemoose site, so even if the original site is taken down the photos will remain on the goosemoose photo album. Glad you like the feature :)

I just set up my $3 per month donation, and I was trying to start an album. I went to Reference and followed the directions. I click Photo Albums, then album, only there is no link that say create an album. There was before, but now its gone. Can someone help me?
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Goosemoose on May 30, 2005, 04:27:02 PM
Hi ttiwedas,
 Do you see a button called user or admin? Try clicking on that and then there should be a create/modify album button. Somehow I managed to change things around and I didn't realize it, I'll have to go back and check it out.

I am having a devil of a time trying to get an album started. Not only am I trying to master the art of digital photography, I am totally incompetent in computer stuff (see, I couldn't even come up with the right lingo!!)  :confused:

I was following the directions on how to start an album but once I click on continue after browsing and adding my two photos I get the message that there is a "fatal error". I'm sure that is the computer dissing me for my lack of photographic skill!! The photos are about 300 and 700KB (if that means anything to you).

Please help, I would love for you all to see my little ones.

HEHE  don't feel bad Loosie. me too!! anyone wanna post how to create albums for dummies in English terms? I'd love to understand it too!! Thanks
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Goosemoose on June 01, 2005, 11:15:53 PM
Have you created an album first? Click on the "User" button, and then click create/modify albums. Create an album, then you can try to upload it there. Let me know if this works, I think I need to fix up the photo album tutorial in the reference section.

If you still have a problem let me know what the last few steps you took were.

Post by: Loosie on June 03, 2005, 08:06:39 AM
I get to step 8 on your instructions. I click "continue" and a message comes up "successful uploads"; click "continue"; that's when I get a "fatal error: allowed memory exhausted". Frankly, I am getting exhausted too! It is obviously doable - so many others have. Apparently it's me (or my pictures?).
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Goosemoose on June 03, 2005, 01:01:35 PM
Does it say more than that? It usually will say how many bytes are exhausted. If possible just copy and paste the error message here.
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Loosie on June 03, 2005, 08:13:40 PM
Here you go:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2048 bytes) in /home/vhosts/goosemoose.com/httpdocs/coppermine/include/picmgmt.inc.php on line 209

Please tell me it's not me.

Post by: Goosemoose on June 04, 2005, 12:22:14 AM
Are you sure the file is 700k and not 7 megs? I am going to make a few tweaks that will allow you to upload larger files.
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Goosemoose on June 04, 2005, 12:31:55 AM
Okay, I made the changes, let me know if it works for you now.
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Loosie on June 04, 2005, 08:44:03 AM
I got a little farther this time - I got to step 9 where I got to fill in the name of the pic. Once again, I got this message:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2132 bytes) in /home/vhosts/goosemoose.com/httpdocs/coppermine/include/picmgmt.inc.php on line 216

Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose now available to everyone.
Post by: Goosemoose on June 04, 2005, 03:49:30 PM
Wow, 16 megs. I doubled the upload size but I think you still exceeded it. How large are the pictures you are uploading? Meaning how many megs are they and what resolution?

Please help! I've got some piccies of my girls that I want to put onto an album. I've created a new album 'rodents' (not original, but hey!), and then I click on 'upload files'. I keep my photos on a flash drive as I use public computers, so I browse to that drive, add the files to the 'Files' section of the upload page, then I click on the 'Continue' button and get a popup saying '0 files uploaded'. What am I doing wrong?? BTW clicking on the FAQ link leads to a 'File Not Found'. I'm stuck!!! ???

Post by: Goosemoose on February 17, 2007, 03:42:29 PM
Unfortunately, you are not allowed to post pictures until you have at least 10 posts on the forum. It prevents people from posting inappropriate pictures.

I created an album and tried to upload a picture, but the album wasn't one of the options to save to so the pic is somewhere in random photos.  I've read the tutorial, but I'm afraid it's still over my head.  :'(

In order to post an avatar photo, like Johnny said, it got to be 65 x 65 pixels.  And the original photo much be shrunk to that size, you can't just post a thumbnail, as those are usually linked to show the full sized image, especially with something like photobucket.

As for the other question about locating the photo albums, the link should be at the top of your web page, right under then animals in the hammock.  ;)

Nope, you're doing everything right, but our software is glitchy, so the photo albums aren't working at the moment.  We'll be doing an upgrade as soon as Goose has a chance to rewrite the software he needs to rewrite to get it all up to normal functionality, and hopefully we'll be back up and running soon!

Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose - Currently Down. Please Stand By.
Post by: Marybelle on August 13, 2010, 12:01:23 PM
It will, eventually.  But, Goose works two jobs in addition to the free work he does for us, so we understandably come in a bit lower on the priority list.  ;) 

In the meantime, photobucket works great for uploading and sharing photos.  :)
Title: Re: Photo Albums on Goosemose - Currently Down. Please Stand By.
Post by: Suebee on August 16, 2010, 10:26:48 AM
They won't be fixed until Goose is able to do the FULL SITE UPGRADE, which is hours and hours and hours of work... that he doesn't have right now.

I also recommend Photobucket. There are lots of photo storage sites out there that are just as free, and much more reliable. Use them!  :thumbsup2:

Your best bet it to upload them to a external site (like Photobucket) and then use the "Insert Image" button up above.  Use the "Direct Link" that PB gives you and put it inside the image tags, like this:

[img ] your image link goes here [ /img]
