jQuery takes a flight of fancy ?

WordPress used it, Google use it and also I use it. I’m a big fan of jQuery and the work of this team. But now I get problems in combination with the interface elements. Firefox shows a couple of problems in combination with V1.2.1 and IE7 didn’t work at all…

After I study the forums around this problem, I found out that the changes since 1.1.4 get in conflict with the interface lib. I found no response from any jQuery developer, the interface lib is dead. Ok, I know that jQuery.UI is the successor and all attention is put on this plugin, but it’s by far not at the level as the older interface lib. I used the sortable / draggable feature in NextGEN Gallery and I hope I get in the future a similar feature with jQuery.UI.

For now I need to go back to Version 1.1.3…

My jQuery fight

Here now the first preview of my jQuery integration.


At the moment I get a headache about the page reload, which is new since I integrated it into NextGEN Gallery. I think I remove the fade effect, cause it’s also not nice for the border effect…

Troubles over troubles…

Please give me feedback if the naviagation didn’t work in your browser (and of course which browser /OS as note)

Implement today my first jQuery plugin into NextGEN gallery, nothing works like it should be… cancelled for today. PHP is much better : Added create page function and new sort option in 15-20 minutes…


I need memory

Yes, the jQuery plugin is working, but not in a good manner. If i show this plugin the jQuery community, oh god …. I can hear what they say. Anyway, I upload in a couple of days this example to gt some feedback with Firefox, Opera, Safari and all other silly browsers.

At the end I hope some jQuery programmer will help me to optimize this one, my journey to JavaScript end at this point. Three long long days for a very very little feature is not very productive…

Today I go back to my good old PHP and implement a better memory checking. I get some feedback that the thumbnail generation ends into an white screen, so I rework the checking for memory : A picture with 800 x 600 could cause already a error if the server limit is 8-12 Mbyte.

The image itself need 1-2 Mybte , but a WordPress Installation with a couple of plugin requires very fast up to 10 MByte (this is what I measure at my localhost system).

Puh.. not my thing

OK, here is something to laugh :
I start with a jQuery plugin and study the plugin jCarousel . I’m at the moment not able to understand and to use the real basics from jQuery. I configure an array of pictures (this.imgarray) and would like to wrap around a link and some div’s. This is the first result :

// get to start point 
this.container = this.list.parent();
for (var i = 0; i < this.imgarray.length; i++) {

   this.innerHTML = &#039;<a href="'+ this.imgarray&#91;i&#93;&#91;0&#93; +'">';
   this.innerHTML += '<img />';
   this.innerHTML += '</a></div>';
   this.container = this.list.append(this.innerHTML).children();


// add the div container
this.container.wrap('<div class="ngg-gallery-thumbnail-box"></div>');
this.container.wrap('<div class="ngg-gallery-thumbnail"></div>');  

Here the result :

HTML result

Mhh, It’s ok , but  I think it’s the wrong method or to complicated. Could be easier at least… need more time to learn jQuery 😦
