I am a newbie at this and recently downloaded tiltviewer to display images on my Yola site. I have no idea how to do this. I have successfully been able to create a gallery using Picasa and tiltviewer and was also able to get the tiltviewer to display in the editing section of my site, but only with default pictures that came with the viewer - I cant get it to connect to the pictures in my gallery. All I did was upload the tiltviewer.swf into the File Manager section and point to it with a basic html code using the HTML widget but that swf file is not linked to my index.Can someone please please please help me? Its driving me crazy! Also, even though I have the Default pictures working on the tiltviewer in the editing part of my page, when I publish it, it just shows up as a big white square. Thank you to ANYONE who can help me - I'm a dummy with stuff like this..

I'm trying to add it to the portfolio page. Right now, when I am in editing mode via Yola, I can see the tiltviewer operating but only with default pics...I have no idea how to get it to link to my image gallery...... then in published mode all I see is a white box where the tiltviewer should be.

This is the site I used in order to make the picasa gallery but it doesnt tell me how to use it on Yola. I made the gallery no problem and can preview it via my exported html page from Picasa but I have no idea how to translate that into Yola. Can you help please! Thanks so much!

If you want a simple slide show from a Picasa album that is very easy...Are you trying to use Picasa with tilt view?

I have a tiltviewer album which is using pictures from Picasa, however the issue I'm having is displaying the tiltviewer album on my Yola page. I can get it to display tiltviewer with default images from the tiltviewer program, but I cant figure out how to link the .swf tiltviewer file that I have imported into my Yola File Manager, to the picasa album I want to use.

Hello Stefanie

Thanks for being patient on this. I'm going to investigate this further and see how it work and how it can be implemented with Yola.

Thanks everyone. I cant wait to get it going. It might just be a matter of changing the html widget coding I used. Its just a little code I found on the net for using swf files in yola. All it does it point to the resources/tiltviewer.swf which I think is just a default .swf file for tiltviewer which has only default images in it. I tried uploading my own photo index/gallery files from tiltviewer/picasa (.js & .html) into the file manager too but I cant load those into Yola. even so, I dont know how to get the swf to point to the pictures....eeeesh! I wish I knew more about this stuff!!!

Hi Stefanie

Unfortunately, you cannot upload .js or .html files into the Yola Site builder. Perhaps this tiltviewer with Picasa is not an possible option right now? I'm still looking into it. Another alternative which offers the tiltviewer is through JAlbum.net. Perhaps you may want to look at them?

Sure - I have no problem using another program but Im not sure that picasa is the issue. I guess I just dont know enough about how it functions to know whether thats the issue or not. If I'm using an .swf file for my flash gallery (ie. tiltviewer) then would I need to upload the swf, the index etc etc into file manager? This is what I dont know. I dont know how to point to the pictures....If I need to upload the swf and the associated gallery or index into filemanager and then use some kind of code in the widget to get the pictures to show up within the swf then maybe the problem is in fact that i cant load the index/gallery but also that I wouldnt know what code to put into the html widget. I hope im making sense - I really have no idea. I basically need step by step instructions. Maybe I'll just switch to Jalbum....could anyone tell me step by step how to do it if I use that instead?

Hello Stefanie

Once you have published your JAlbum, you will be taken to your Jalbum site. Then, take these steps:

1. Click on "links and codes to your Jalbum".
2. Copy the link in the 1st box (for email and IM).
3. Drag and drop an HTML widget into your content area on your site builder.
4. Paste in this iframe code and replace the "YOUR PHOTO ALBUM LINK GOES HERE" with the link you just copied.

<div align="center"><iframe
src="YOUR PHOTO ALBUM LINK GOES HERE" width=980 height=750
frameborder="0"></div>

You can adjust the width and height accordingly.

5. Save and then update your site to see the changes take place.

I'm sorry that the answer for the Picasa tiltviewer was not forthcoming. I hope that this alternative will work well for you. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Is it just the "http://ChameleonConcept.jalbum.net/Po..." and width=980 immediately after or should there be something separating these two codes? Forgive my ignorance - I clearly suck at html.

Please don't apologize! HTML are tricky little things. =)

There should be a space between the " and width. If you'd like, you can send me an email at support@yola.com Attn: Littleus.
