I uploaded my Picasa images, but now it says Google+ Photos - where did Picasa go? The plugin doesn't work with the new set up

I've used this for a while, and it always works well, thanks.

I like your extension but... there is possibility to put different users of Picasa albums?

I have site where are articles of my friends with their pics in own albums. Now I can only set one user in plugin setup and that is it..

I wish to put a different albums from different fotographers - there is possible to define owner of album i line to your plugin direct in article?

Thanks a lot for answer.

Best regards,


Great but...

I love the idea of this plugin, and I'm trying to make it work. It's the only thing I've seen that can access my hidden folders in picasa, and also show a different set of photos in each album.

I tried to contact the developer, but as I can't read Italian I couldn't work out the contact form.

I use Google Picasa to display pictures I've taken on school for the school newspaper. I always do this with a slideshow and before I copied and pasted the whole Picasa code in the HTML screen of an article. So now, with this extension, this is much easier and more reliable (the code sometimes magically disappears when I paste the Picasa code). I can set the height and width and can also display the captions I usually add. There's only one thing I miss and that's a Start button in the beginning so visitors can decide whether they want to see the images or not. This Start button is available when I paste the Picasa code, so it would be handy if it was also available with this extension. Thanks for this extension!

Owner's reply: thank you very much for your suggestion. I updated Picasa Embed Album plugin, so you can select autoplay or not.

Since I share photos on Picasa I am using this handy plugin. Works out-of-the-box. I have made one modification (on two lnes, the wmode for transpacency), so that my drop-down menu is on top of the slide show:

getflashplayer" wmode="transparent"

Furthermore one suggestion: the width and height are selectable, but fixed. May be an automatic width/height based on the actual screen size can be added??



Owner's reply: Ok, I added your modification of transparency, but, what do you mean with "automatic width"?
