Picasna 1.5 Release Notes

In this release I added some features that Picasna users requested.
Due to a major bug fix, Picasna should work with larger number of server configurations. Now the script that generates and caches the Picasaweb xml responses is located on picasna server (not on blog owner’s hosting).

What’s new:

— Keyboard control (Right/Left/Space for Flash Player 10).
— Caching for faster loading.
— Fetching all public albums.
— Bug fixes.

Now to display all public albums from your account, just put the following link with your Picasaweb username:
<a href=””>Gallery</a>


  1. I LOVE your plugin, and my wife is especially interested in it!

    Is it possible to get it to work in sidebard? Either by setting up a link, or just a text widget?

    Thanks so much!

  2. I can not seem to get the ‘all public albums’ function to work…
    I have put:
    as the content of a page, but it doesn’t work…

    and, YES, it would be great to get it working in the sidebar!

    May 19th, 2009
  3. Terry, yes. You can generate an embed code of the picasna widget, then copy and paste it to a text widget in the sidebar.

    Igor Barbashin

  4. Barisko, did you replace “your-username” with your Picasaweb username?

    For example here’s my user name:

    Igor Barbashin
    May 19th, 2009
  5. yes i did.
    The problem wasn’t the url, but the amount of albums in in the picasa account: 320 albums. That’s clearly to many for this plugin at present time.

    May 19th, 2009
  6. Barisko. Yes, it definitely too many. I tested that with 40 and less albums. Worked fine.

  7. You wrote
    >>Image sizes larger than 800px are not embeddable. Firefox and Chrome don’t care about that, bot some browsers do (one of them is IE).<<

    Would it be an possibility to make it browser dependent. So that if you choose 1024 in the options Chrome and FF would show 1024 and make a hard limit regarding IE. So that the biggest what IE shows is 800, regardless what is chosen in the options. Would help much because than it’s granted that IE is showing something at all.

    May 19th, 2009
  8. Eike, good idea! :) I’ll include it in the next update.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 19th, 2009
  9. Eike. I just launched the workaround with 800+ sizes (no need to update). Now Firefox and Opera are able to display big pictures. But the max size of 800px will remain for IE, Safari and Chrome (I was wrong about the Chrome).
    Please try that and let me know if it worked.

  10. Hi ,
    How do you get th egallery to load automatically without having to click link?

    May 19th, 2009
  11. I meant to add that when I click on link, the plugin doesn’t open in the wordpress page, it opens new page at picasa.

    I want the gallery to be displayed in the WordPress page without leaving the site.

    May 19th, 2009
  12. Hi everybody,
    I’m a french nubbie and I’ve tried to install your plugin in localhost. Everything went well until this message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in C:\wamp\www\wordpress\wp-content\plugins\picasna\picasna-functions.php on line 60

    What’s the matter


    May 19th, 2009
  13. I have the churchlife theme of wordpress and I have downloaded and activated picasna but i cant figure out how to get the plugin to showup on a page. I am wanting to have a photo page on main menu bar and have that be in it when you click on it, Is that possible, please help?

    May 19th, 2009
  14. Borland, go to your php.ini file and uncomment the following line:

    For wamp the php.ini file is located in C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.9-1

    Igor Barbashin
    May 19th, 2009
  15. Im not sure what im doing wrong. Im kinda lame…

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /nfs/c01/h07/mnt/37817/domains/ on line 106


    May 19th, 2009
  16. ok I went through all the steps and this is what I keep getting

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /home/content/c/f/t/cftn1/html/relevant/wp-content/plugins/picasna/picasna-functions.php on line 106

    Im in the same boat as amy,

    May 19th, 2009
  17. Amy and matthew, please upgrade to PHP5 if possible. If you (or your hosting provider) can’t do that, you can use the widget.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 19th, 2009
  18. Igor,
    I’m using WAMP and in the folder C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.9-1, I got two different php.ini file:
    - php.ini-dist
    - php.ini-recommended
    Which one do I have to modifiate ?

    My real website in hosted on free, will I have also a file to modifiate? If yes, do you already know which one of them ?

    Thanks by advance for your support !

    May 19th, 2009
  19. Igor,
    by saying uncomment the following line, did you mean removing the “;” at the beginning of the sentense you’ve mentionned ?

    If right, it doesn’t change anything on both php-dist.ini & php-recommended.ini

    I still have this error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in C:\wamp\www\wordpress\wp-content\plugins\picasna\picasna-functions.php on line 60

    May 20th, 2009
  20. Sorry, I gave the wrong location. php.ini must be in `C:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.11\bin` (not in php folder)

    And yes, uncomment means removing “;”

    Igor Barbashin
    May 20th, 2009
  21. Igor,
    It works !!!!!
    Do you also know which file do I have to change with a website hosted on free ??

    May 20th, 2009
  22. I’ve tried on free, and I’ve got this error now:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /mnt/106/sdb/7/b/ on line 106

    May 20th, 2009
  23. Borland, the plugin requires PHP5.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 20th, 2009
  24. Noooooooooooooooooo !!!!!!!

    May 20th, 2009
  25. Borland, you can use the widget. It doesn’t depend on your hosting server configuration.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 20th, 2009
  26. I’ve tried but it told me to check to data entered !
    But I’m pretty sur of what I’ve wrote !

    May 20th, 2009
  27. >>Eike. I just launched the workaround with 800+ sizes (no need to update).<<

    It works :)
    Very cool

    May 20th, 2009
  28. Igor,
    I’ve succeed with the widget but, as it was possible with the full plugin, I want the galery to be displayed within a post published within a specific category… (you can see what I’m trying to do here:
    Is it possible ???

    May 20th, 2009
  29. I’m fine,
    I haven’t seen the HTML editor !!!
    Thank you for the work you’ve achieved and the support you gave…
    See you soon

    May 20th, 2009
  30. Seems to me there is an issue with updating the title and number of photos in albums. Mine was stuck on 3 photos whene there where 55 in album. Deleting and re-uploading didn’t help. I had to change album name to update those info.

    May 20th, 2009
  31. Hey Igor, there is still no option to remove our Picasa Username?

    May 20th, 2009
  32. Any luck creating a PHP 4 version of this code?

    We have been trying to implement this but keep getting stuck by the PHP 5 dependencies.

    Let us know, thanks again.

    May 20th, 2009
  33. How about including a link in the picture viewer to the picasaweb location where the pictures are stored? That way somebody can easily download the pictures to their own system.

    May 20th, 2009
  34. My novice status is going to be highlighted here still… I’m attempting to put together my first blog and absolutely love the clean simple flash presentation that shows with this plugin. As EASY as it should be I’m not getting the link apparently right. I have an album uploaded to my picasa account titled “cre8ive options custom logos” and I’ve pasted what I think is the appropriate “link” into the HTML form <a href=”cre8iveoptionscustomlogos “> is this the right procedure?

    May 20th, 2009
  35. JKL, can you please give me a link, so I’ll try to fix it.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 20th, 2009
  36. GandangPinay, not yet, but you can change your nickname in Picasa Web Albums settings.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 20th, 2009
  37. hey thanks… didn’t know that :D

    May 20th, 2009
  38. Igor !

    Thanks, got the widget for the sidebar working….

    CAN I use the widget with the “allpublic” album function?

  39. Terry, not yet, sorry.

  40. Hello
    I struggle to put HTML in the description in the Gallery. In your example you have HTML in the description. Could you please explain how to do this?

    May 22nd, 2009
  41. Underline Italic and Bold does work but the link doesnt.
    And what to do to update the description in the Plugin.

    May 22nd, 2009
  42. Igor, what do you think about my link idea?

    May 22nd, 2009
  43. Ok it works.
    Maybe it took time because of some caching plugins? Or do changes in Picasa take time to see them in Picasna?

    May 23rd, 2009
  44. Chris, yes. I’ll add this feature in the next update

    Igor Barbashin
    May 24th, 2009
  45. Eike, sorry, I forgot to warn that due to caching all changes that you make will appear in 3hrs.
    I know, it’s annoying, but I’m preparing an update which allows you to update the cached files to the most recent state.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 24th, 2009
  46. it seems you are not reading the wordpress forum posts tagged with picasna :-) so I’ll post again here:

    looks like a really good plugin. still some questions:

    - I’d like to use it with wpmu 2.7.1 as opposed to normal wordpress so I need to know how and where it caches as it should be separated for each user
    - is there a way to generate an “gallery” page? I mean i.e. having a page where one sees all my albums – can I i.e. insert multiple urls into a single page to see all my albums and then be able to open one by clicking onto it?

    May 25th, 2009
  47. 1. ovidiu, for now, it shouldn’t cache anything on your server, so I don’t think there’s a problem with using it on multiuser wordpress. (I didn’t test it though).

    2. Sure, you can either use “allpublic” feature which described in the post above, or you can simply post a list of links to the selected albums. The second option allows you to post multiple unlisted albums.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 25th, 2009
  48. cool, sounds great. if you’ll implement the caching, will you rememebr to take care of wpmu too? if its cached in the DB you must jsut know, that wpmu uses a little different naming scheme: each blog has its own set of tables like: wp_prefix_blog_id_tablename resulting in something like: wp_1_options also wpmu stores the files usually inside: …./wp-content/blogs.dir/*glob_id*/files/upload…..

    the important part is that each blog, gets its own directory inside wp-content/blogs.dir/[...]

    May 25th, 2009
  49. ovidiu, thanks for the information!
    If you install the plugin, can you please confirm that changing picasna settings on one blog doesn’t affect the others. Sorry that I can’t test it by myself.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 25th, 2009
  50. ok, I’ll check when home, after work, but if you didn’t hardcode the wp_options table it should work great. will confirm later on

    May 25th, 2009
  51. Would it be possible (maybe in the future) to use Picasna also for Pictures hosted on own webspace. Because in my opinion, it’s a very nice way to present the pictures to my visitors.
    For the moment I have pretty much space left on the Picasa account (900MB) but on my own space i have 10 GB in total ;)


    May 25th, 2009
  52. Hello Igor,

    The strange thing is that version 1.4.1 works well, but 1.5.1 version gives this error:

    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in /storage/mijndomein/users/049114/public/sites/ on line 60″

    My hosting provider gives the following specs en I can’t edit php.ini by myself:
    MySQL 5.0
    PHP 5.2
    Perl 5.8

    Any idea what the problem is?

    Thanks! Peter (NL)

    May 25th, 2009
  53. seems to work just fine with wpmu, except I am unsure about the cache. is it completely off? will it be implemented?

    May 25th, 2009
  54. hi,

    (sorry for my english, i am french!)
    after install the plugin and see how it works at, i have a new error :
    “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /homez.139/wplab/www/wp-content/plugins/picasna/picasna-functions.php on line 106″
    in all theme i test except wp smashing. also it appear the link not the picture and open the picasa webpage not the normal picasna gallery.
    i haven’t another plugin install in my website and my hosting use php5, pearl5,C and python

    thanks for you help this plugin is really amazing!!!

    May 25th, 2009
  55. Hi

    After updating to Picasna 1.5 I get this error message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in D:\home\rfdk\www\blog\wp-content\plugins\picasna\picasna-functions.php on line 60

    Is it me or…???


    May 26th, 2009
  56. Hi, Peter and Jakob. I just released the update that should fix this problem.
    Please upgrade to 1.5.2

    Igor Barbashin
    May 26th, 2009
  57. ovidiu, thanks for the testing.
    Caching is implemented on my server that fetches responses from google api and converts it to xml for picasna. It also caches big pictures due to some google’s restrictions.

    There’s actually no need to cache anything on the user end. But I have an idea how to speed up the loading a little. Probably I’ll use database to cache something.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 26th, 2009
  58. ok, thanks. I was just confused because there is a cache folder inside the plugin folder. there is a similar plugin that offers file caching or DB caching, have a look at its for flickr :-)

    btw. why does part of the plugin run on your server? what exactly is that part? what information gets transferred from my system? would it be possible to build in an option to run it all locally on my server?

    thanks and consider your plugin wpmu compatible, though only tested on one wpmu installation.

    btw, I’d be also itnerested in seeing this plugin compatible with more picture services, i.e. flickr or even local galleries :-)

    May 26th, 2009
  59. Works like magic!!!!


    May 26th, 2009
  60. ovidiu, it was working completely locally before v1.5. But it used to cause a lot of problems due to different server configurations.

    In v1.5 and higher the .swf file and the script that parses and caches picasaweb xml are remote ( for example). It reduced the loading time from 10 – 60 seconds to 2 seconds and lower. And a bit later it will help to run the plugin even on PHP4.

    And actually the widget is going to work with flickr shortly. Approximately May 27.
    After widget, I’ll try to implement that in the plugin.

    Regarding local galleries, it’s possible but needs a bunch of instructions. I can write it later.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 26th, 2009
  61. christophe, are you sure that you’re on PHP5?

    Anyways, I’m planning to make the plugin php4-compatible, but it’s going to happen only in June. You can use the widget until I fix it.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 26th, 2009
  62. This plug-in is one of the best image/gallery plug-in ever.

    I do wish that somehow, when are few pictures in the gallery to be displayed in the middle, or you could choose in which part of the screen/page to be displayed.

    May 26th, 2009
  63. wow. thanks for the good explanation. will wait and see, pretty impressive plugin :-)

    May 26th, 2009
  64. Kesepian, thanks for the feedback! I’ll think about it.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 26th, 2009
  65. It works perfectly! Thanks for your effort!
    My donation is coming! ;-)

    May 26th, 2009
  66. Thanks a lot, Peter. Enjoy!

    Igor Barbashin
    May 26th, 2009
  67. thanks for the easy and great plugin.

    unfortunately i have one little problem: once i flip forward through the overview of the images (9 images on one page) the existing return button between these overview screens is not working. Just forward. Do you have any suggestion?



    May 26th, 2009
  68. Thommy, can you please give me the link, so I can see what you mean? And tell me screen resolution of your monitor (e.g. 1024×768)

    Igor Barbashin
    May 27th, 2009
  69. Hello,
    I’ve used your plugin for a friend’s gallery (website link) and it seems that with your last release we can use a cache. I’ve seen in the admin part screenshot (in the plugin directory) that you can put how many days the cache must wait to reload the gallery (hope I’m understandable). But I can’t find that in the picasna admin page ?
    Thanks a lot for this plugin, very impressive and wonderful (I was so releaved when I found it :P ).

    May 27th, 2009
  70. ktycat, the admin screenshot is from the old version. The cache didn’t work properly and I moved the part of scripts to my server.
    Now it caches xml-responses for 6 hours, but there’s a way for force updating the cache. I’ll write a post about it later, but there’s a quick tip.
    If you changed something in your picasna gallery (e.g. description, photos order, album cover). After a couple minutes you can go and view your gallery. It will show your old cached album. Now press “UP” on your keyboard. The message in the left bottom corner should appear and in a couple seconds your gallery should update to the latest version.

    Igor Barbashin
    May 27th, 2009
  71. Thanks for the fast reply and the tip :) . I’ll try it ;) . And thanks again for the great work you’re delivering !

    May 27th, 2009
  72. Igor,

    thanks for your quick response.
    I have a Asus Eee and a good resolution for surfing in the net with this small screen is 1024*600 for me.

    With this resolution the described problem occures. I just changed the resolution to 1024*768 and it worked, but that resolution makes me need to scroll to much.

    Doesnt this plugin work with the 1024*600 resolution?

    YOu can find our pictures it under and go to Pictures in the top.



    May 27th, 2009
  73. Hm, interesting. For me it looks like the button reacts only when you roll over the upper half of the button (on 1024×768). Maybe the same or even worse happens on the smaller size.
    I’ll try to fix it tomorrow.
    Thanks for noticing, Thommy!

    Igor Barbashin

  74. Hi I tried the widget and there are no problems, it works.
    But if i follow instructions to do it without the widget, the result I obtain is only an external link to picasa web album ….what’s wrong?


    May 28th, 2009
  75. Hello,

    First, This is the best plugin I have yet to try. Thank you for sharing and for all your efforts!

    I am having problems with v 1.5.2. I am able to display the album fine but when I try to add more images to an existing album, it does not update the page (slideshow) with the new images.

    Here is the link to the site:

    and here is the link to my picasaweb album:

    As you can see from my website, it only has 38 images (the first 38 I uploaded). I added a few more images (now totalling 70+) but it does not update my linked album from my website.

    Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you so much!

    May 28th, 2009
  76. cjovilla, it’s cause of caching.

    If you changed something in your picasna gallery (e.g. description, photos order, album cover or uploaded new pictures). After a couple minutes you can go and view your gallery. It will show your old cached album. Now press “UP” on your keyboard. The message in the left bottom corner should appear and in a couple seconds your gallery should update to the latest version.

  77. Picasna works only on shitest browser IE. About Opera or FF, it is dead.

    что означает полная хуйня!

  78. Igor,
    I’ve tried so many plugins for my WP site, bt this one rocks!
    there were no issues in installation. the T_OBJECT_OPERATOR error was solved when I upgraded to PHP5.
    But unfortunately I cannot get it working with the kind of code you’ve recomended.
    This issue is same as the one posted above mine and another french mate.
    Pl help to resolve. Thanks.

    May 29th, 2009
  79. hi igor,

  80. L.A., у всех у кого стоит Flash Player 8, должно работать во всех браузерах.

    Будет здорово если дадите подробности что и как не работает (ссылку, версию флеша, скриншот и тп).

    Igor Barbashin
    May 29th, 2009
  81. Sorry Igor. It started working the next moment I wrote to you.
    However, can you resolve the URL issue. ie not make mandatory. I would like my app to use my local server
    Request response. Thanks.

    May 29th, 2009
  82. Hi again,

    I see you added the ability to put an HTML description into the album page. How is this done?

    Also, the new loading of images is very slow on 1.5.2. I think the fade effect is the problem, but I don’t know what else may have changed over 1.5.1. Please help!

    May 30th, 2009
  83. I changed the post page to another page and made my main page static. Since I made that change the posts do not properly reform the picasa links. Is there a fix for this?

    May 30th, 2009
  84. IGOR, here’s the link to my page. Sorry for the delay.

    June 1st, 2009
  85. Hello,

    First, This is the best plugin I have yet to try. Thank you for sharing and for all your efforts!

    I am having problems with v 1.5.2. I am able to display the album fine but when I try to add more images to an existing album, it does not update the page (slideshow) with the new images.

    I noticed that once I ADD more images to an existing album, it does not update right away. Let’s say originally I had 50 images in my picasaweb album and I added some 20 more, when I go to my web site it would still show 50 as opposed to 70. I have cleared my cache and even tried it on a computer that has not gone to the site, and it still showed the original amount. At some point it took over 24 hours to update the number of images on the site.

    Any tips that you can share with me?

    Thanks again.

    June 1st, 2009
  86. please disregard previous post, I did not notice that you had already replied. In any case, your suggestion works! Thank you again Igor!

    June 1st, 2009

  89. Hi Igor, is there an option to disable showing video? Or capability to stream video?

    excellent gallery plugin, of course.

    June 2nd, 2009
  90. af3, yeah I’ll try to add filtering video files till I add the full video support for this plugin. Please wait for an update.

  91. I have a weird problem with the plugin.

    When I write a new post and insert only 1 line as
    it worked perfectly.

    But only if the above line appear in last sentence of the post, otherwise it shows only the word “gallery”

    For example, if I insert 3 actually same line


    in a post, the page shows

    album photo (only last line is fine)

    if I do this
    – could be any text
    failed miserably.

    Any reason of that?

    June 3rd, 2009

  93. Thanks Igor.
    In fact already read your intruction and tried the but still same.
    But when I use the link button from the post editor toolbar it can work, once I switch view to HTML and save, it failed as usual. Any solution? Thanks so much for your reply.


    June 4th, 2009
  94. Yeah another thing, when I use code generated from widget, it works.

    June 4th, 2009
  95. Is it possible to configure this amazing plug in to only display a single album instead of the entire album collection of the user?

    June 5th, 2009
  96. Hi there, is it possible to remove the white border when displaying images ? can I make some tweaks in the php, if not will you include such option?

    Thanks :)

    June 6th, 2009
  97. Hi !
    I’m using the widget. (no php5, error line 109).
    I updated the album description but the text doesn’t appear, even if I remove all and try again, empty the cache etc. How can I add a text to the left side of the opening window please ? Isn’t that supposed to be the album description?

    Please help !

    June 8th, 2009
  98. Hi again,

    unfortunaletly I have the same problem as cjovilla, new added images don t appear in the gallery.

    Could you please tell me, what you mean by pushing the “up” button. On my Asus Eee keyboard is no “up” button…Thanks fo your help


    June 9th, 2009
  99. I LOVE your plugin!! Thank you very much! This is what exactly I’ve been looking for :) )

    Just a small question.. How to display a caption for each picture? So the viewers will know what the picture is about~

    Thanks before!

    June 9th, 2009
  100. Hi Igor
    Refering to the Coln’s problem, you can check out how the layout got messed up with 3 albums, I tried programming HTML , , and even a We need to get this smoother, infact if you allow the links to be inline to text, there won’t be any issue. you can check out my page here
    Also, I do not know how to activate the SlideShow feature when an album shows up????????
    Thanks for the great plugin

    June 9th, 2009
  101. I meant I used paragraphs, divs, brs and even a hr, but nothing works

    June 9th, 2009
  102. Your plugin is just amazing!

    But please, add settings for customizable frame.. like size and colors

    please, please :P

    Thank you

  103. Does it work with WordPress 2.8

    June 12th, 2009

    June 13th, 2009
  105. The plugin is great but it’s a shame that one does not have possibility to choose whether to store xml cache on it’s own blog… why bother your site and collect all that rubbish private data?;-)

    June 14th, 2009
  106. wow.. so many great reviews of this plugin!

    a few suggestion for futures (already suggested by others too):
    a) video support
    b) xml cache
    c) comment for photos on blog, rather than in picasaweb
    d) more customizations
    e) …

    June 15th, 2009
  107. i keep getting this error:

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /home/content/j/a/s/jasonisaac/html/wp-content/plugins/picasna/picasna-functions.php on line 109

    any suggestions?

  108. Hi there Igor,

    Thanks for a great plug-in for wordpress!

    Over the last few days, the picasna plug-in has stopped working on our wordpress installation. We keep on getting the “Sorry. Something wrong please check the entered data”.

    The plug-in has been working fantastic up to this point, and we just made sure we have the newest version of wordpress installed with the newest version of picasna…. still the same problem.

    Here’s a sample of the issue:

    We have made sure the link is the correct format, on it’s own line, in the right picasa format, ect. ect.

    Any help you could provide would be so so so appreciated.

    Once again thanks for creating great software for the world.



    June 17th, 2009
  109. Hi Simon,

    Firstly – this is one of the best plugins I have found for wordpress! Suits what I was looking for perfectly.

    I have just one question though – is it possible to display the cover image in the center of the post? I have tried a few hacks but none of them seem to work.



    June 17th, 2009
  110. Hey there Igor,

    Found the issue. For your reference.

    Created a new picasa album in my local picasa application and upload the images online. This caused all of my wordpress integration to stop working and I recieved the “Sorry. Something wrong please check the entered data” message.

    To resolve this issue simply delete the album you just created via picasa, recreate and upload again. You will also need to update the link on your wordpress post to point to this new gallery.

    June 17th, 2009
  111. Hi,

    and thanks for a great plug-in!

    I can’t really make line breaks work around the album thumbnails in my post. The text after the link to the album just gets cluttered up on the side, which is to narrow. If I put a dot in front of every line break () it will work but otherwise it’ll be ignored.

    Any suggestions?


    June 18th, 2009
  112. I love how your plugin works and I’m hoping to get it working on my blog. I’ve followed all your instructions about the line breaks and linking, but it just looks like this:

    Can you please tell me what I’ve done wrong? Thanks!

    June 19th, 2009
  113. This plugin rocks, and as you say in the description, I shouldn’t have bothered checking out the dozens of other plugin crap that try to do the same thing.

    I have one feature request though. Could you add a “play” button to the page so that you shouldn’t click next (or press left/right) all the time? Doesn’t seem like to much trouble.

    If you need helping coding, just give me a sign ;)

    June 21st, 2009
  114. Igor,

    Like Borland, I got the following error message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function simplexml_load_file() in /home/u6/sigfo/html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/picasna/picasna-functions.php on line 66

    I saw your fix for him but I don’t know what a php.ini file is, where to find it, or how to “uncomment” it. (I don’t know code). Thanks for any help you can give. Looks like great plugin.

    June 21st, 2009
  115. Is it an issue that I am a Mac user? I saw how to “uncomment” something, but still don’t know where this php.ini file is. I’ve tried several things now.

    June 21st, 2009
  116. P.S.

    I would be happy to donate a few bucks if we can get this thing working for me.

    June 22nd, 2009
  117. Hi Igor,

    the plugin looks fantastic, and I’d really like to use it for my future travelblog, but I’ve run into an issue.

    I’ve prepared the Picasa galleries with a sample photo and the correct link on the WP page, and it works as advertised. My problem is, that I’d like to be able to simply upload more pictures within the same Picasa gallery and have the plugin refresh the content on the WP page, but it doesn’t seem to do that, not very often, anyways.

    How often does it actually refresh the gallery and import new pictures from Picasa (if any)? Can I adjust it somehow?

    I’d love to use your plugin on future WP sites, since it’s a brilliant way of using Picasa galleries!

    June 24th, 2009
  118. nice job.but it load too slowly…may be it request your site xml (

    for example:
    visite in China too slowly…your site also

    i think u can use cache to make it load quickly.

    June 28th, 2009
  119. i have a maybe silly question. i am not that good in coding but i like to hide the link to my picasa page on google in my gallery (so the whole text to the top left). where do i have to change the code? what do i have to delete?

    July 2nd, 2009
  120. Hi, Igor.

    I installed the plugin and had no problems or errors. However, the links simply do not make albums.
    What happens?
    NOTE: I’m using Arthemia Premium theme and WordPress 2.8
    Please, help me!

    July 2nd, 2009
  121. How to display captions alongside the photos? Thanks for your help!

    July 8th, 2009
  122. Hi Igor,

    having a good time with your plugin! Thanks.

    I have 5 albums on my wordpress page. I just added th sixst one and something changed, and I don´t know, why. While all the other albums look the same, the new one suddenly has a frame around the picture and is therefor bigger? Can you help me? Where do I say that I want a frame or not and why is it different for the different albums?



    July 8th, 2009
  123. Hi Igor

    Great plugin! Really usefull!

    Is there anyway I can alter the Covertitle text to show “View album”, instead of the actual album title, but still keep the album title when you actually click on it and view it inside the fullsceen display?



    July 12th, 2009
  124. Does this Picasa plugin work with the latest WordPress 2.8.1?

    Joni Solis
    July 14th, 2009
  125. I’m wondering the same thing Joni. I’ve tried it on WP 2.8.1 to no avail.

    Curious WPresser
    July 18th, 2009
  126. This plugin is just fantastic! Just a couple of questions:
    1. Is there a slideshow capability?
    2. Is it possible to add theme support? E.g. Can I create my own versions of the look and feel and not have them conflict with the core files of your plug-in?

    July 22nd, 2009
  127. Hello, I installed Picasna on my website. Look at my first album here:

    I wrote a caption in the picture but it doesn’t show below the picture. Do I have to modify something in order to have the legend of my picture shown?

    Thank you and great work.

    July 29th, 2009
  128. I’m having a problem displaying albums on my website. I noticed that the same error is occurring on this site’s root.

    That being said, I absolutely love this plugin, and despite the visual errors, for the most part, it is working just fine with WP 2.8.2.

    I’ve done a screen capture of each example.

    Picture 1

    Picture 2

    Thank you for your work with this plugin.

    August 1st, 2009
  129. Hello,

    Is there a way to make this amazing plugin not take over the whole screen but just the browser window?


    August 4th, 2009
  130. I can’t make it work, i follow all the instructions but nothing. My albums are invisible

    Like that is the link i put. I tried to put a line before and after. Nothing.

    I’m using WP Version 2.8.3

    Sorry about the poor english.

    August 5th, 2009
  131. When i use IE, I can’t find the links, while they do work in Firefox. Is this something in Picasna?

    August 9th, 2009
  132. really looking forward to getting this working with WP 2.8.4 :-)

    August 12th, 2009
  133. Hi Igor,

    Many compliments for your terrific work. This is one of the best plugins there is.

    I have the latest version installed on WP 2.7.1.
    I have the following issues.
    - Sometimes the Picasa link is not resolved.
    - Sometimes the link is disappeared from the post, so cannot be clicked. (IE)
    - Sometimes half of the thumbnail is shown
    - Sometimes the Picasna div is more wide then other Picasna divs.

    My blog is a family blog with different users and different Picasa usernames. Also the front page of the blog consists of more then one post with Picasna albums. I have the impression the Google API cant handle all the requests together? When I click into the detail page of a post, it with more often show the Picasna start thumbnail OK.

    Below some screenshots of the issues.

    Below some screenshots (FF on the Mac)

    August 13th, 2009
  134. 2 additional remarks

    - I use WP Supercache plugin also, may be that interferes.
    - On a screenshot of Safari. There the thumbs are all loaded fully, but the sixe of the Picasna block is different.

    August 13th, 2009
  135. Regarding:

    I have the same issue. How can I have the site refresh the page? How often does it refresh the pages?

    August 13th, 2009
  136. Hi there

    We would really like to use this software for a photographers site but can’t get it to work on Internet Explorer 8 at the moment, we have built a site in WordPress and used Picsna within it, it works OK on Safari on the Mac but not on IE8 on the PC, please advise.

    Kind regards

    August 17th, 2009
  137. Hi Igor,

    Is it possible to insert Picasna into flash? Can I embed it?

    How could I go about doing that?


    August 17th, 2009
  138. Hi,

    Seems to be buggy with IE. Nothing shows with Internet Explorer (IE) while the album displays properly with Firefox (FF). Is your plug in not good for IE? Is it only designed to work with FF?

    Any answers?

    Thank you,

    August 18th, 2009
  139. Hi there,

    this is an amazing plugin so thanks for making this available.

    I have a need to link to a large number of galleries on a singel page… about 70 in total… the downside is that it currently takes over 2 mins to render the page..

    I have installed super cache in the hope that a near permanent cache could be created but this is not helping..

    have you any tips on how a 70 album page could be stream lined or it a no no?



    August 18th, 2009
  140. Hi there, I followed the instruction but I can’t get it to work. See

    When click, it takes me direct to picasa website album.


    August 18th, 2009
  141. I’m also having issues with it displaying in Internet Explorer (all versions). It just doesn’t load anything. It works fine with Firefox however.

    August 19th, 2009
  142. Minz here again… what could be the problem? I uploaded the files and activated it admin panel. But frontpage is simply a link that directs to picasa album.

    ps: igor, i think it would be a good idea to have a forum.

    August 19th, 2009
  143. I think i should give up.

    Your plugin user
    August 19th, 2009
  144. I’m having a problem with the album cover not showing correctly in the post. It just shows a 10px by 10px square which is clickable to bring up the gallery. Just looks like crap.

    Viewing the source reflects this as well. No matter what I change the cover size to.

    August 21st, 2009
  145. Igor,

    I guess you are on a long holiday, isn’t it?

    August 26th, 2009
  146. Absolutely awesome plugin, looks so slick and clean.



    August 27th, 2009
  147. Thank you so much for the plugin. Its been a blessing!

    September 4th, 2009
  148. Igor, a great plugin!

    I am able to see albums just fine on Firefox but not on IE.

    It seems odd in that I can see your example albums on your website just fine on IE but not the ones on mine. That indicates to me my IE is ok but I might have configured the links wrong.

    IE was working fine a few days ago. And as a WordPress rookie I have no clue where to start looking for the problem – there have been no configuration changes with my servers – that I am aware of. Any advice would be appreciated.



    Ed Naylor
    September 15th, 2009
  149. Ed, i have the same problem. In FF everything works fine, but not in Opera 10 and Chrome :(

    September 22nd, 2009
  150. I found something odd. I want the whole plugin to load from my site, so I copied gallery.swf to some directory on my server and wrote a little php script which generates required XML. XML from my script was identical with XML generated by picasna widget. I changed paths in wordpress plugin… and my modifications works only in Firefox (for me). When I installed plugin again, and run it without any modifications everything works fine. So i left it as is… but is there any chance to get COMPLETE plugin, which don’t need to lad anything from ? What if was down?

    Sorry for my english, and regards from Poland ;)

    September 22nd, 2009
  151. To those with I.E. 8 problems … I don’t have a fix for you but I’m not having any troubles seeing albums with WP. It also worked fine when I was using I.E. 7. Sorry this isn’t helpful to you but I did want to let you know it does work.

    I would like to request the captions work within the album viewer.

    ASU Service
    September 23rd, 2009
  152. I’m really glad I found this plugin. Many people who view my website will be older folks, and I wanted to put some instructions for using the gallery features right above “Powered by Picasna” and below the album description. I couldn’t find a way to do that, though. This is what I wanted to display:
    -To move forward to the next picture, either click on the right half of the current picture, hit the right arrow key, or hit the space bar
    -To move back to the previous picture, either click on the left half of the current picture or hit the left arrow key (backspace didn’t work for me in Mozilla)
    -To view captions, hover the mouse pointer over the picture; to hide them, move it to the dark outside border
    -Hit the “Esc” key at any time to close the picture viewer

    I am a developer, so is there a way to modify the code to do this? Or maybe it could be a nice option in the next release. Many people might include it since the hover-caption thing wasn’t intuitive to me at first. I’ll get around it on my website for now, but it would be even more awesome if it was integrated right in.
    I love the elegancy of the code by the way.

  153. Здравствуйте Игорь! Давно приглядываюсь к Вашему плагину, но похоже работы с ним немного прекратились?
    У меня в блоге около 1500 фотографий и переход на Ваш плагин будет сопряжен с большими работами :) поэтому хочется свести риск к минимуму.
    Скажите а будет версия которая будет работать с локальным хранилищем фотографий в альбоме Picasas на компьютере? а потом бы эти альбомы просто экспортировались в WordPress… гугловские альбомы не очень популярны у блогеров (я поставил слайдшоу альбома-копии от одной часто просматриваемого галереи у себя в блоге) Посещения гугловского альбома практически нулевые а в блоге галерею, как смотрели, так и смотрят :) Поэтому хотелось бы иметь версию плагина без привязки к альбомам от Гугл.

    September 27th, 2009
  154. The problem with IE8 is that object doesn’t get any values for width and height.

    September 30th, 2009
  155. Domus, хорошая идея. Я буду её иметь ввиду. Технически реализовать вроде не слишком сложно.

    Igor Barbashin
    October 1st, 2009
  156. foxiu, sorry for the late response. In the new version i’ll add the complete support for running the widget locally.

    October 1st, 2009
  157. Thanks ;)

    I have another question, accidentally i put twice the same photo into gallery. I noticed it while browsing gallery via picasna. Then i deleted one of photos in picasa album, but picasna still shows it…

    October 6th, 2009
  158. i’m pretending to be a first class spammer on this blog ;) but I found answer to my pervious post – to be accurate, the answer found me. Duplicate picture removed from picasa album just dissapear frm picasna after some time (but not instatly after remove)

    So, it’a all ok ;)

    October 6th, 2009
  159. Hello. I really like this plugin. I want to show the first 8 photots from my most recent album on my home page. How can I do that with this plugin?

    October 7th, 2009
  160. >Domus, хорошая идея. Технически реализовать вроде не слишком сложно.
    Через Гугл АПИ сделать кнопку в Пикасу не сложно, а вот сделать экспорт, как веб-альбом на свой сайт или блог будет сложно сделать? Мне сейчас приходится делать так:
    1) Прогонять все фотки через экспорт, чтобы появился вотермарк
    2) Экспортировать в HTML (использую плагин wp-simpleviewer – он делает вывод картинок аналогично Вашему, но все равно все-таки не так)
    3) по ftp закачиваю в блог или сайт.
    4) руками прописываю ссылки.
    Это достаточно долго и сложно.
    Если была бы возможность сделать в 2 клика экспорт из Пикасы в свои галереи в блоги с возможностью оформления наименования альбома и подписей к фото (подписи в Пикасе реализованы отвратительно), то цены такому плагину бы не было. Я специально занимался поиском плагинов для Пикасы, чтобы делать экспорт на свой сайт(блог) – их нет. И народ сильно этим возмущен, т.к. реализована только возможность работы с веб-альбомами ( и понятно почему ;) ) а для WordPress никто ничего так и не написал. Уже даже есть кнопки для TwitPic и для Flickr и т.д.. Если Вы сделаете такой плагин – успех у него, я уверен, будет очень большим и он будет востребованным.

    October 11th, 2009
  161. Could you please add the possibility to SAVE the images?

    October 15th, 2009
  162. Very impressed with this plugin, but less happy that it relies on the support from another server (picasna). I don’t doubt that picasa will be around for a while, but there isn’t the same guarantee with picasna. Is there any possibility of allowing the option of using the picasna server or the local blog server?

    October 17th, 2009
  163. N00bie here. Is there a way to replace the hard-coded “your-username” portion of the link with a variable representing the currently logged in user?

    October 23rd, 2009
  164. Hello, i love this plugin. I would like to know if i can
    edit the php to allow coversize to be at least 320.

    I edited picasna-admin.php, and it threw some php syntax errors and didnt show up. Any suggestions?
    either way, thanks!

    October 26th, 2009
  165. Igor,

    To echo everyone else, fantastic plugin. Two comments/suggestions. First, picasna is fast, but is it possible to make it even faster by reducing/eliminating the transitions (fade white, resize box)? Even better if this could be a plugin setting. Second, I think I have the same problem as Gerjan mentions above (unequal sizes of thumbnails). I think for me it relates to whether the picasa album is public or unlisted.

    Great job!

    October 26th, 2009
  166. Igor,

    Awesome Gallery!!

    Is there anyway to have the gallery open automatically?

    Basically what I am trying to do is be able to launch a single gallery from the main navigation of the site.

    Let me know what you think.

    October 28th, 2009
  167. or to be more clear, I dont want to use the thumbnail to launch the gallery.

    October 28th, 2009
  168. Is there any chance you will add support for WP’s internal gallery? I mean, that the images could come from there.


    November 3rd, 2009
  169. Is there anyway to make the full path of the gallery not show when viewing the slideshow?

    Currently, when I click on an album the screen pops up and displays the photos and a huge “un-sightly” link on the upper left hand corner of the screen which is the url path to the image gallery.

    Anyway to remove it?

    Thanks! Great plugin by the way.

    November 8th, 2009
  170. ha! Nevermind….I just made the links a hyperlink and changed the text thats displayed for the hyperlink.

  173. hey
    thanks for a great plugin – i love it
    i have major problem
    in my mac i see the plugin work well both in safari and firefox but when i use windows 7,xp i don’t see the plugin – i see nothing – there’s nothing to press on to go to the picasa album
    is this something fixable in this version or the problem is known ?

    ofir arbel
    November 14th, 2009
  174. Have you had an issue with this plugin working with IE7. The thumbnails will not show up in IE7.
    In Firefox it works great. Any Ideas?

    November 23rd, 2009
  175. The plugin looks great, I would really like to use it! I am using PHP 5.2.6 and I still get the syntax error. I tried to use the widget, and it said there was a problem generating it.

    November 25th, 2009
  176. Hello

    Is there a way to load picasna entirely locally? I do not use picasa, I do not use the google picasa albums. Is there a way to create a folder inside wordpress and ‘tell’ the plugin to look for images over there. Or better yet to integrate it with NextGen gallery? This would let me sort photos, for example.

    November 27th, 2009
  177. Wow! Seriously good!! Roll on 1.6!

    Just a query….you say “Now to display all public albums from your account, just put the following link with your Picasaweb username:

    That’s good and it brings in all my 9 albums, but it doesn’t display the album names?

    would be useful if it did. does it? How to do?

    Thanks for great plugin.


    December 4th, 2009
  178. 1. Love this pluggin.
    2. My album covers are actually covers to catalogs. I’d like to make the whole album cover thumbnail viewable. I tried to add 200 as an option to the picasna-admin.php and it lets me set it in settings but the setting doesn’t take. Any way I can do this?


    December 7th, 2009
  179. Hello Igor, I must say this is an excellent plugin from your demo album!
    How to show the captions with each picture though? I’ve already added captions on PicasaWeb, and I know if captions are viewable, if you hover the mouse over the picture itself, the captions will show. However, the captions don’t show at all.
    I’ve seen other people have this problem but there was no answer to it? I’ll love it if you have an answer =)

    December 12th, 2009
  180. Love this plugin.. but it would be great if each photos has a comment section.. could be integrated with disqus or intensedebate… thanks.. ;)

    December 15th, 2009
  181. I have an error on site:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /home/ronkalc/public_html/wp-content/plugins/picasna/picasna-functions.php on line 109

  182. Great love !!! It is now working!!
    Just put in php 5 and corrected a lot of mistakes (that I did!!)

    Thanks, thanks a lot!!
    Thats the best plugin for Picasa ….. in the world!!

    December 30th, 2009
  183. After updating WordPress to 1.9 Picasna no longer shows up on posts and pages. The flash is there, but not active.

    January 7th, 2010
  184. Picture caption permanently ON, so not only on roll-over…

    Is that possible? Can I change that somewhere in picasna-functions.php?

  185. Hey Igor,

    Thanks for making the best Picasa WP plugin I have ever seen.

    The only issue that I am having is that if I set the gallery in Picasa to unlisted, the album thumbnail does not display properly.

    Using the widget solves the issue, but is not as elegant as the plugin. I am building a site for a photographer and I would like it to be as easy as possible for her to add galleries herself.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    March 26th, 2010
  186. Great plugin! but it’s not working for me..
    after I insert the link and click on it, it simply opens my Picasa web albums page, no effects, no full screen.. nothing, asif the plugin is not even installed, although I have it activated, and all links are valid, I’m leaving a break before and after the link.. no “rel” tags added..

    can somebody help me out?

    April 2nd, 2010
  187. Hi,

    I’m having the same problem as ‘Ozai’
    Any help with this would be great.


    April 4th, 2010
  188. Hi
    Is this project dead? Last post from Igor is from October 1st!

    I love the Picasna gallery and I look forward to the next release.

    Best regards

    April 12th, 2010
  189. Hi,
    i use the Picasna 1.5 plugin on WordPress with Altahualpa theme. In my menu, i have a drop-down category. The problem is that my drop down menu is hiding behind a gallery instead of in front.This only occurs on IE and Safari. (Firefox everything OK) Tnx in advance for usefull tips & tricks :)

    April 29th, 2010
  190. I love this plug in, it looks incredible, however, it is not automatically updating the pics from my album. It did the initial ime, now when I add pics to my account, it doesn’t update on my picasna gallery. Any suggestions?

    Dan Stadtmiller
    April 30th, 2010
  191. Not sure if it’s Google’s issues or this plugin but I I keep getting the “Sorry. Something wrong please check the entered data” error & the suggestion above didn’t seem to do the trick.

    I’m sure it’s something I’ve done or whatever considering all who use this plugin.

    So that brings me to the question of why my link provided by Picasa (link to the private gallery online) looks different from that in the plugin instructions.

    My gallery which I can view online gives me an address with my username but also an ID=”string of numbers”. If I try that link or try removing the ID part (or even updating/changing the gallery name myself) I get the “Sorry.” message.

    What is it that I am doing incorrectly? Appreciate any help.

    May 29th, 2010
  192. * please disregard my last post, I see now you include the ID in the link & insert a line above the link & add some text to it in your post.

    May 30th, 2010
  193. Hello,

    I was wanting to use Picasna on my site, but didn’t want to use the little image box – I’d much rather have static text or specific image (not in a box, not with text and lables and shiny bits all over it, just an image) that links to the picasna fullscreen thing.

    When I put the Test code into my post, it ditches the word and puts in the box.

    Is there any way to go about doing this?

    July 13th, 2010
  194. Um… what the?

    I just noticed that my Picasna:
    a) doesn’t include the required gallery.swf file and
    b) is calling it from your site!

    Appart from the fact that this is a major security risk, that’s probably costing you a frigging fortune in bandwidth. lol.

    This needs to go to the TOP of the ‘to-fix’ when/if you release 1.6…

    July 13th, 2010
  195. Hello,

    I was wondering if you could help me out with your wordpress plugin. I have installed it and everything works great, but I can’t seem to get the background for my page to expand down the size of the photo gallery I have setup. I am not sure why this is.

    Any ideas?



    July 13th, 2010
  196. lol, I’ve just tried posting a massive message to anser Zac, Koen, Ozai, & Orin’s questions, and reply to MadsRH and Igor… but it seems to have been held in the land of ‘awaiting moderation’.

    As there is a strong chance this blog is no longer being attended to, I fear that painfully long post was written in vain. *sigh*

    If it magically apears one day, I hope my answers solve your respective questions, if it doesn’t… well, at least MadsRH will have a definitive answer. haha.

    July 14th, 2010
  197. Great plugin – one request if possible. Is it possible to get the lightbox script to automatically size the image based on the screen resolution? Or could the option be included to use a different lightbox script, i.e shadowbox, which will do that for you?

    Thanks again for all the hard work.

    July 18th, 2010
  198. Hi Igor,

    first of all let me thank you for the great work.
    I am a professional software developer and I know, what great job you did.

    I have some ideas for the future of your plugin, but that is not the reason for writing today.

    After reading some of the comment in this section I tried the plugin in IE8 and – it does not show the preview album at all. What can be wrong here:

    Thank you in advance
    best regards from germany

  200. Hi,

    I love this plugin, great work – the best slideshow viewer I have seen so far! I was wondering if it would be possible to use text as the link to the slideshow viewer instead of the first image of the album (i.e. the badge)?


    August 10th, 2010
  201. Hi,
    very beautiful plugin ;-) Is it also possible to add only one photo from an album in an article?

    Thanks for your answer!


    September 4th, 2010
  202. i just found Picasna and i think it looks great, but i like a bit more control on how to show the albums in a page.
    Is there a way to work around the ‘float’ object setting, cause i think that is the mean reason that my layout looks screwed when i put in aditional text.

    Thanks for ur great work so far :)

    September 7th, 2010
  203. Oke, ive solve the problem with the float setting. I removed it from the picasna_functions.php. Now i’m only struggling a bit with the margins of the album thumbnails. I tried to adjust the left and right margins in the same document of the objects settings, but with no result.
    Does anyone know where i can adjust the margins of the album-thumbnails?

    September 9th, 2010
  204. hello,
    one of the nicest plugins ever :) I’m using Picasa for publishing my pictures so it is important for me to have a solution to pull them on my website too.
    One problem: i want to make something like “views” on my images: to show only images wich have a particular tag (but are in different albums). Eg:
    Why this is not working ? How could I make something like that ??

  205. Hi there,

    does Picasna support XHTML 1.0 Transitional?

    When I checked the embed code with the W3C Validator I got 47 errors and 61 warnings, most of them referring to unescaped “&” characters. In addition to that there were several errors referring to unsupported attributes for the “embed” element.

    regards, Sebastian

    September 27th, 2010
  206. Now news from Igor for more than a year. Igor, are you still there ? Is the plugin still maintained/developped ?



    October 5th, 2010
  207. hey there,

    can anyone tell me why there’s no album title in fullscreen mode nor in the thumbnail? my picasa album link is correct, but i still get no album titles :(

    >> live demo


    October 7th, 2010
  208. never mind, after reading the plugin code I realized that the album title is NOT the album name …besides the link text is the album title! *dough* :D

  216. Thanks for the great plugin. I was trying to figure out the captions functionality and noticed there were several questions about it.

    Picasa captions on photos will be pulled by doing the following:

    Go to Settings/Picasna and “Show” – Show or hide the title on the initial cover thumbnail. This turns on and shows the title of the link that was specified when you place the picasa link on your page or post. Example: TITLE OF LINK

    The TITLE OF LINK is what will be displayed on your Photo album on your WP page or post.

    Also, for those who can’t get the plugin to work, make sure you take off the http”S” on your picasa link and the # at the end.

    Works like a charm in WP 3.1 for me now.

  217. I wonder about the URL:

    Is it an account of Google or Picasa??
    How can I get my username??

  218. Hello,
    Thank you for th egreat plug-in.
    I would like to use it on my photoblog but my concern is that I already have about 600 photos up and do I have to re-set individual photo manually or is there other way to do it?

    Thank you for your help.

  220. Hi,

    Wow – seeing webpages were this plugin work I get jealous:-) I think I have wp version 3.1 and I have added this plugin however I only get the pictures to be shown at the Picassa webpage not on my own website. What do I do wrong? The pictures are set to public… Thanks in advance!

  221. Hi,
    FYI, Picasna thumbnails are coming up waaay zoomed in. Even your sample gallery on the main Picasna page is doing it. Might have been a change at Picasa today that’s causing it.

  222. Google pushed the fix out this at 3am eastern time this morning. All’s well here.

  223. Hi, I’m setting up my blog and seem to have issues with getting my picasa album to view. Your plug-in certainly looks the best on your demo but I cannot make it work. I have followed the requirements as stipulated. The site is here. Does it make a difference if my picasa account reads https instead of http? Please help, I’ll happily make a donation if I can get this working.

    Thanks (:

  227. Hey,

    Looks like this is an excellent WordPress plugin, but I cannot for the life of me get it to work. I have followed your instructions to the ‘t’, but all I get is a hyperlink to my picasa web album in both posts and pages. It is as if the picasna plugin isn’t recognizing the link as it should, as it is not displaying my photos as advertised. What am I doing wrong? Please help?!

    June 26th, 2011
  228. Hey,

    nice Plugin :)

    just one Question: If i go to an Photo Album via Picasna, i have the Title in the top left corner and the Authors name just below it. How can I delete the Authors name?
    Which modification do I have to do in which data?

    Greez :)

  229. On previous versions all files needed by the plugin where included in it. But in actual version the flash file and the file that generates the xml flashvar are not included and a call to this site is needed for the plugin to work.

    Any chance to have all the files so I could install them on my server (making the necessary changes in code) to make the plugin work without any external call but the picasa ones? I’m doing tests and I think sometimes the albums thumbnails are not shown (it only shows the loading icon) because some kind of problem with the call to picasna to obtain the xml file (same link works intermittently, does why I think is a problem on the xml generation).

    Great gallery.

  230. I tried to download your plugin today from but it doesn’t find it.
    What am I doing wrong? I simply typed “Picasna” but it doesn’t return any plugins. Thank you.

  231. I had a major delay loading my website. I deactivated all plugins and activated them one by one. Picasna was the one causing the delay. So my question, is this a general problem or is it maybe because i made a Album with 166 pictures?
    But i guess it was not a problem in the past.
    Or is it related to the http https thing?

  232. Dear Igor,

    really great, exactly the functionality i need!

    Now I want to transfer all my galleries to be presented by picansa.

    But I have the same problem as “coln”. When I use a “page” I can add multple gallery links, but when I use a “post” I can only add one gallery.

    Now I have seen that you havn’t answered questions for 2 years yet. Do you still work on it? If not, I cannot take the risk to use extensively this plugin.

    Also in the name of other users I just ask you to say some words wrt. further development and bug fixes.

    If you continue, I for sure will support you in form of a donation! If not it will be really a shame.

    Thanks and Best Regards

  233. This plugin is very good but as it is coded now it is becoming useless. Anytime the gallery is requested a request is done to this site to get the picture list. So when this site is busy and it seems it is becoming very busy, the galleries does not work at all.

    Please consider including all files with the plugin so each person do the necessary request, the server side logic, on his own servers instead of centralized here and as you were doing, if I’m not wrong by inspecting the code, in previous versions of the plugin.

    Otherwise this is useless and it is a pity because is very very good plugin and widget. Besides I’m feeling this is almost abandoned as here is the only supposed place to make questions but what’s the point if there are no answers.

    We are forwarded here for questions and there is not a forum, a contact form or whatever to make them, just these comments.

  234. Hi i wonder how you can se your albums name. I know what the title are but i dont seam to be able to generate the code.

  235. hello,

    I tried


    but it didn’t work, its a picasa account linked with my google+ profile…

    November 16th, 2011
  236. problem solved: changed https to http now it works, but there is still a problem: in 4 out of 5 tries the waiting indicator stays at the preview thumbnails (google chrome)…

    November 17th, 2011
  237. @Alex I was facing the problemwith chrome, it seems to appear only when you’re logued in google with chrome, try to logout, clear the browser cache and you should done

    We love this extension but it seems it has not been updated since a lot of time, we would really appreciate more control over cover size (only 3 size isn’t just enough), plus, it doesn’t look optimized for landscape or portrait pictures (for square images no pb) but that’s probably a picasa limitation too (bad cropping for portrait covers)

  238. Hi!
    is there a way to customize the album thumbnails?
    I would like to customize it with html and css like that and when you click on an album thumbnail display my album.
    This can be done? if so how?

    Thank you!

  239. Hi, Im wondering if you plan on releasing a non flash version of your plugin, I really love how fast, lightweight, and elegant it is, but flash is a deal breaker for us at the moment

    keep up the good work!

  240. Since Picasa Web Album has a HTTPS Protokoll you need to Edit some Code in picasna.php:

    if (false===strpos($content, ‘’))

    if (false===strpos($content, ‘’))


    $preg .= ‘href=["\']http://picasaweb\.google\.(co\.uk|[a-z]{2,4})/([^/\s]+)/([^/"\'\s]+)/?["\']‘;

    $preg .= ‘href=["\']https://picasaweb\.google\.(co\.uk|[a-z]{2,4})/([^/\s]+)/([^/"\'\s]+)/?["\']‘;
