The other night, I decided I wanted to add some pics to my neglected pic gallery. I signed in OK. That's about it, though: * I went to the section of the gallery to add albums. There was an odd album with bunches of odd characters in it. I tried to delete and got fun SQL error messages. * I tried adding some pics with Piwigo's little upload application. It finds my gallery ... but doesn't show any albums. Deep sigh. Well, I might as well take care of any possible back-end database corruption by deleting that oddly named album, then run a database repair. OK. Let's try uploading pics again. Nope. The next thing is to turn off all custom plug-ins and revert to the standard theme. I can now upload stuff, but the user-end looks absolutely terrible. So, time to start adding one customization after another until I hit the one that breaks everything. Found it. Deleted it. However, the user-end still looks ugly. I switch back to my old theme. Still ugly. I hit the "revert to defaults" button on the theme. Still ugly. I remove the theme and reinstall. Better. I then add a few pics. Hmm. The "full size" button's not working and the page formatting's still way off -- like 6" of blank space at the bottom of the page. OK. So, disable and delete the theme and the three plug-ins that work with it. I download and install the newest theme from Piwigo.org. Much better. Well, that killed a couple hours. I sometimes wish I had my own tech support guy.
