    There is so many skins & combinations that make jalbum as versatile as it is, it would be impossible to give an answer without saying what configuration & skins you are using, as many work in different ways. But the easy way to use jalbum on a BV page is via an iframe with a link to your jalbum url. If using iframes! would recommend keeping the popup images (large one) as small as pos to save them creeping under the frame when enlarged. There is also a good forum at jalbum.

    Hi everyone,

    Its been a while since I did my Jalbum tutorial but it should still be good enough to get you started. Hope it helps and if you have any other question, please feel free to drop me a line and I'll try and help out as best as I can. Oh and one more thing ...i think it's missing in the tut...at the end use Iframes in your site where you want the album to be and link it. Ususally it will be something like ...http://www.yoursitename.com/album.html

    The album can be named whatever you want it to be and uploaded to your server using JAlbum or via ftp. My album for example is below...so take a look to get an idea -
    http://www.beezworld.com/mytravels.html

    Ok...good luck and welcome to VH.

    Hi there people!

    This is how you use JAlbum:

    1) Install JAlbum software at YOUR PC
    (NEVER,NEVER in BV or somewhere else)

    2) Run JAlbum and CREATE youre ALBUM in there
    ( choose skin and make the settings)

    3 PUBLISH your ALBUM THROUGH JAlbum

    4) Make a text or a button LINK from your site to the JAlbum folder you just created

    (a link like this: http://www.arosgate.com/jalbum/metal/index.html )

    Go to the JAlbum forum and ask your question there.They will help you out there.The support there are GREAT.

    Hey Beez,

    I watched the tutorials and understood all of them. BUT I have a different version of JAlbum (Version 7.4) Which version you used the tutorial? I can create an album and that's all...I saw in the tutorial step 7 that there're links that you used. I don't have any link things...Clearly I don't know how to name the album and where it should be put..As I upload the files to my FTP its okey. BUT as using inline frame WHERE SHOULD I FIND THAT LINK that opens the album??? Was that clear? Oh I'm so desperate :/

    I know you answered these questions millions millions time but please help me...

    Hi. if you have uploaded the album to your server you will have a folder with the name you called the album. Go to your cpanel & find that folder in your public_html area. (assuming this is where you uploaded it) Go into the albums folder & look for a file called index & click on it. It should now show you a url link on the right hand side of your c panel. Click on this link & the album should open. This is the link you would use in the url field of your iframe.

    Good luck.

    Hey Feyza,

    LOL...no problem answering a million questions....and as Chris said ...check you public_html folder for you album. See step 8 - the PUBLISH section of your JALbum and that is where you tell JALbum what you want to call the folder your album goes into - eg. I call my folder 'my travels' and so when I link it is www.beezworld.com/mytravels.html.

    As for IFrames ... in BV you click on the IFRAMES icon and place it where you want on your page and in the IFRAMES properties box place the link where your album is located - www.yoursitename.com/youralbum and viola that's it. Preview to make sure you pictures are falling nicely in you IFRAME and adjustt he frame to your needs and publish.

    Section 7 of the tutorial shows the skin properties and although i useda much older version I believe the new version does the same. I'm using a mac now and the mac version seems to still have all the same features and most things seem to follow the same path. I will be redoing that tutorial but for now...I'm afraid a bit busy.

    Hope that helps in clarifying things....buzz me if you need anythign else.
    Beezz

    Chris,
    I have two questions
    1-Do you know why nothing is seen as I drop the gif images to JAlbum?
    2-I have created so many albums but in JAlbum's FTP window I can see just 4 of them...Also in BlueFTP I can see just 4 of them..Where're the others?It uploads a new album and then I can't find where it is...Do you know why I can't see the rest??

    Hi, i am still practicing with JAlbum. But i have noticed that for some reason it dosnt always like giff images that have been converted from other files like jpg, & with some skins it prefers NOT to use drag & drop. Also! it wont take animated giff's
    On the 2nd part, i can only assume that all of the files havnt been ftp'ed Its worth using another FTP program if you have one available. Or are you publishing straight from jalbum to your server.

    Chris,
    I'm publishing straight from JAlbum and you know I'm using BlueFTP and the published files are not seen..I can open the files with the browser but I can't see in the FTP. And you have any idea in BlueFTP why I can see just 1998 objects in public_html?

    Hi Feyza!

    When you publish a .gif picture throught JAlbum in to your FTP it should not be a problem, but i know for a fact that not every SKIN are good.
    Some of them handle all pic formats good and some skins do not.
    So you have to test different skins to check out the best skin.

    TIP: This how i did it

    1) I built 4 albums with 4 different skins.
    2) In each album i put in 4 small pictures with the 4 formats (jpeg,png,bmp,gif)
    3) Then i saved each album as a stand alone album (1alb,2alb,3alb,4alb).
    4) Then i published all 4 albums.
    5) Then i tested all albums by putting in and delete pictures.(size,format)

    This is the best way of testing skins and how they handle the picture formats and how fast they are build/rebuild in thoose skins.
    By doing it like this i could determ witch album are the best for me.

    Hopefully you understood my explanation.
