    TypeError: Browser has no properties...

    That's the only thing that I can get the smugbrowser to say. I had a previous iteration of smugbrowser that was awesome, so I must have messed something up. Any thoughts?

    :D

    Mike,

    yeah it was a slight technical problem, and i took the thread down for a little while...reinstall should fix the issue.

    I created an albumn, and then uploaded photos. On my site, the gallery got created correctly, but no photos? No record of them being uploaded in my log files...but they uploaded for some time, and after each completed, the tool (Smugbrowser) reported the photos as 'uploaded"...

    Anybody have any photos they don't think are theirs?

    There is a chance that the images didn't actually upload even though it said it did.

    Dev, this thing is hot snot on a silver platter. Seriously this has already saved me so much time. Awesome! It's so cool that I can log into several different accounts at the same time. This will definitely be my only smugmug uploading tool from here on out.

    Oh and the bulk update tool, excellent touch!

    Out of curiosity, it shows in the options an option for view image size. I've set it to Large URL. Is this a feature that is still being worked on or am I missing something? I'm just not seeing a large image anywhere.

    Also 11doh.gif I accidentally put in one of my accounts twice into the new account part. Is there a way to remove an entry on the left pane if you no longer want it?

    Again, fantastic tool! What a tremendous help this is going to be for lots of people.

    Hey Mike,

    Firstly, thanks for your kind words and your endorsement thumb.gif

    hehe, man it was so easy to implement, it was almost a crime not to have it. It's not quite implemented the way i want it, ultimately, I want it in a wizard format with a check tree, so you don't have to update every album within one category etc.

    :D For a few reasons, I decided to release this version as it was. Previously, I had larger images loading on their one tab, but instead I want to do something kinda like the SM lightbox. I just haven't had the time to do it.

    I need to add that as an option, another thing on the list. If you want to know how to remove it, IM me and i'll tell you.

    Hi Gary,

    No unfortunately this will only work on Mozilla based browsers. The attraction of using Mozilla browsers was the multi-os support that is built-in by default.

    David,

    Once I download the install where should the files in the zip be sent to?


    Update:

    Nevermind David! I'm not paying attention today for some reason. It works fine when you download it from Firefox! I was in IE and did not notice. Works great! Thanks a lot.

    How to upload images?
    OK, so am I the only "thick" one here. It took quite a bit of experimenting for me to figure out how to upload images.

    I finally figured it out -- from Windows Explorer drag and drop your selection of images onto the album name, which adds those images to the window at the bottom of the page. From there you can right click on an image and select Upload All.

    Overall, very nice program and something that would lend itself to a hundred feature requests :D, e.g., offline photo tool actions like rotate, zoom thumbnail, etc.
