    This is my first time using Wordpress for one of my websites. My website is http://www.midnight-pictures.com. I just cant seem to get the prettypicture to work. I cant get the videos to play, or images to pop up. I have spent hours trying to find the solutions, so now I come to you guys :) As of now I have a gallery under portraits, but I want to set it up so I can scroll through the images using prettypicture. Let me know what you need from me and thank you so much for any help.

    Hello midnightpictures,

    You will need to update prettyPhoto as seen in this thread, http://mysitemyway.com/support/topic/infocus-and-wordpress-31

    Let us know if that fixes your issue.

    Thank you, that fixed my problem for the image gallery. It still will not play my flash files though. This is the code I'm using.

    <img src="video/VideoEditing/videothumbs/gaffersdelightIMAGE.jpg" alt="Gaffer's Delight" width="150" />

    It shows a blank white square. Also, it there a way I can link the thumbnails in the portfolio sections to automatically play the video file and/or view the slideshow instead of always having to view the post? Thanks again!

    Hello midnightpictures,

    Are you trying to load your swf file within your portfolio gallery? If this is the case then you will need to paste the URL to your swf file in the "Portfolio Video Link" field when editing your post. (see attached image)

    Okay Elliott, thank you for your help. The video is still showing white but it may be my fault when converting it. I will play with it a little bit and if I need more help i will contact you here again. Thanks!

    Alrighty midnightpictures,

    If your still having problems with it then PM us a Wordpress login and we'll take a closer look. You can also upload your videos to youtube or vimeo to have them display also.

    Elliott,
    Is there a way that I can get prettyphoto to work with the wordpress gallery instead of using the codes. Here is my example:

    http://midnight-pictures.com/?p=103

    I have the gallery code for pretty picture on the top and the default gallery for wordpress on the bottom. The wordpress properly crops the images to fit and has a much better appeal. It is less labor intensive when it comes to image resizing as well. is there a way i can make the bottom example popup with prettyphoto?
