Select a slideshow and gallery style template or duplicate settings from existing gallery. Templates may be added to the folder /wp-content/plugins/slidepress/templates
I've tried this repeatedly. When I upload, it never shows up in the menu. I'd like to download from the gallery, then edit outside of your interface, please, which is clunky and unreliable, and then upload and choose the version I just uploaded.
yes, I am refreshing the page to try to see the uploaded xml file.
I have figured out the answer and it involves an error in the documentation:
Import style preset
Step one: Connect via FTP
Open your FTP client and connect to the domain where WordPress is installed. Navigate to the /wp-content/plugins/slidepress/templates directory.
Step two: Upload XML
Take an exported XML file and upload it to the directory above.
Step three: Refresh galleries
Open your web browser, and navigate to the SlidePress plugin area of your WordPress install. You should now see your uploaded style in the "Optional Style Preset" drop-down.
Actually, you have to upload it to the /wp-content/UPLOADS/slidepress/templates directory.
You guys should fix that in the docs for SlidePress.
however, it STILL doesn't work to change the presets... I have the gallery I am using set to a custom template (what does it actually take to make this stick? clicking OK in the ajax popup? Update Gallery? both?)
Still, the default 030303 background is applied.
preset xml page: http://adv.syncbox.com/wp-content/uploa … 56x600.xml
but the param has: contentAreaBackgroundColor="0xFFFFFF"
ANYWAY, it's confusing as hell and not simple in the least. I have managed FINALLY to get a "custom" xml style to what I want but I hope it doesn't get edited, since it isn't a named custom template in the uploads/slidepress/templates directory.
Hi - thanks for your help with this. I have corrected the wiki document in question so that "uploads" is now in the path.
As for the question about it not changing the presets, I just tried the following and it worked fine:
1) Edit a gallery
2) Changed content area background to red
3) Clicked Save Gallery
4) Scrolled to bottom, exported xml
5) Uploaded xml to the /wp-content/uploads/slidepress/templates directory
6) Created a new gallery in SlidePress, opened the "Optional Style Preset" drop-down, and my custom preset was there.
Is that the same path you're doing? You may be skipping #3 and not saving the changes before exporting.
Well, I sort of had two problems... I don't WANT a new default xml style sheet when I create a new gallery.... they should ALL use the custom xml style. That said, I WAS trying to select that DURING the creation of a new gallery, so you are correct about what I was doing wrong.
It's still a PITA to have to do two things to get what you want, though.
I suspect I should copy and paste my custom settings OVER the default, but I am not sure what happens if I deactivate slidepress and then reactivate -- does it push default.xml back into the uploads area? That would mean upgrading would likely require yet another custom file to save.... as I'd have to copy and paste the custom settings to the plugin version of default.xml template, right?
I was trying to set the style xml template at the time of creation of the slideshow, but now know you cannot do this until AFTER the gallery is fully created. But frankly, you shouldn't have the Save Gallery button BELOW the Optional preset if you cannot set it to a custom template at that time... just my opinion.
