Putting latest images in sidebar.
« on: July 25, 2009, 05:03:52 pm »

I run a skins fansite and i would like to know how to put, say, the latest four or five images in my sidebar. I use wordpress as a blogging system by the way. Furthermore, i would like to know how to show newly added images in any posts i make. If you dont understand what ive posted then please say so as i would like this problem solving.

There are plugins for wordpress to do this without cpmfetch if you can't get that to work. See how it looks on my blog (scroll down for the gallery part) http://dkeserver.se/

I use the wordpress plugin CoppermineSC

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

it worked, but the pictures dont show up.

CPM Fetch usually is very easy to install and is well documented for installation and use.

If you have a new installation and did not see the 4 images, then I would suggest to start over - you have nothing to lose. After you see the 4 image verification then.....

For a very painless way to put CPM Fetch on any page see this thread: Simple Javascript plugin for cpmFetch

It is a very good way to avoid iframes and gives you a lot of flexibility with CPM Fetch.

Have Fun!
p.s. CPM fetch issues should go into the corresponding threads.....

That's an invalid reply if you want support. Both the instructions for cpmFetch as well as the coppermine docs explain what you need to do in a request for help. Both common sense as well as board rules should tell you the same thing as well: we can't see what is wrong just by looking at the text of your posting. You'll have to do some more things. Your best bet is to start reading here: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,35221.msg197845.html#msg197845

All three galleries you appear to be running have the "Powered by Coppermine" footer removed. In that place, you have put a remark at the right column on all your pages (no matter what app they are being driven by):

That is not acceptable according to the license coppermine comes with. Restore the original coppermine footer or stop using coppermine!
