Adding New Albums in Surfacezero

Post by zepher11 » Sun Sep 16, 2018 6:29 pm

Can anyone point me in the right direction to create an album in Surfacezero? Used to be no big deal to set up an album for a different project. However, it's changed a bit and I can not figure out how to create a new album.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you,
Zeph

Ditto for me. I have not added one in a while and now I do not see where I can do it.

Yeah, it's been that way for a while now. Be nice if one could add an album.

Hi Zeph,
I'm not sure we'll ever find how a member could create multiple galleries if that option really exists.
The PhP Photo Sharing Photopost is out of business since years….
This is now a SupportZero script !

From a guy with that script installed on his website (2017) : :evil:
But in my poking around searching for a solution, I found the support request link on the Photopost website was working so what the heck, I submitted a plea for the latest software upgrade.

Much to my surprise, the next day I heard from "Dave", Photopost Customer Support of All Enthusiast, Inc (at least according to his email) with this reply:
"The latest PhotoPost vBGallery is v3.02 from 2/4/14 and the latest PhotoPost PHP Pro is v8.5 from 7/1/14. PhotoPost is no longer being updated, supported, or sold publicly, as of a few years ago. If you would still like to upgrade, please PayPal $199 to paypal@photopost.com and we'll renew your access to download the latest, with the caveat that no support or updates will be provided."

They thought of paying $200 for old software with NO support made me shudder, but I really need it so I asked for a PayPal invoice and paid the fee upon receipt.
A day goes by with no word from them and I discover the link to their Members Area craps out with a 505 error.
Concerned, I email Dave asking wassup and he fires back with this:
"... as you seem to have run out of patience with us, I have refunded your $199 payment in full and unfortunately we won’t be able to provide the latest version."
Fortunately the 200 USD were reimbursed to the guy because the last version was no longer available :) !

I've questioned the Internet Waybackmachine about the Photopost website archives and here is a page showing the options.
According to me there is no provision for the user to create different galleries. Each member has 1 Member Gallery, full stop.

Thanks for the research Yves. One used to be able to create different albums about a year ago in Surfacezero. It looks like I created my last album about a year ago when I received my Dodge WC57. After that, I was no longer able to create any more new albums. Prior to that last one I never had a problem doing so. Here is a shot of all my albums with the Dodge WC57 as the last. WC26 Carryall was a few months before that:

Hi Zeph,
Thanks, that's good news. At least we have a hope to be allowed to create albums in the future.
But at he moment, the option is disabled for some reason.
The link to reach the album page is http://www.surfacezero.com/g503/useralbums.php
This is what it returns today :shock: .

If the option was enabled, it would have shown the Create Album link.

I've read somewhere that Ron has acquired the php script. So it's still alive.

Regards
Yves

HI Steve, that's great you flew on Witchcraft. That was a great experience. Sitting in the nose, and especially the tail gunners position, was incredible. Really gives one the sense of what the greatest generation went through...

I flew in Nine-0-Nine last year. Nor sure which I would want to be a crew on. At 20 you could talk me into to it but 60 no thanks.

Anyone crack the code yet on creating a new album within Surfacezero? Still looks like it isn't possible to me.
