Could be. Dev will ck with Omar.
DA, you're making a comment on the behavior of Internet Explorer, not on a deficiency with Smugmug. If you were using a different browser you would either see the whole URL or be able to resize the Properties window.
If you are set on using IE under Windows, I find the easiest way to copy long URLs from an IE Properties window is to click anywhere on the segment of URL that is visible then hit CTRL-A CTRL-C -- that is "click, select all, copy".
As per Andys request to post this here:
Yesterday I've noticed that my Recent Photos Gallery hack (link off of my navbar) no longer works. Using FF2 gives me server cant be found, IE7 gives me page can not be displayed, and FF leaves a URL in the addy bar of .smugmug.com although at least IE shows the proper URL.
I never made any changes at all, so I'm assuming that SM made a change at some point (from my email from Andy: Hi Derek,
It's likely to do with the new SmuKeys that are being used.)
Did you guys make a change that I'm not aware of, should I for now remove that link from my navbar? (I hate broken links on a page!)
You will probably need to test this cuz I haven't
But I believe a modified, regular expression as below should work...
re = /gallery\/([\d]+)(_(\w+))?\//;
I'm in the same situation, but I figured out how to do it. Bring up a photo in the light box and you'll see a URL like this:http://www.pixelartifacts.com/gallery/4201785_AYPQy#245572011_cvomi-A-LB
Change 'gallery' to 'photos'. Delete the gallery number (e.g 4201785_AYPQy). Delete the extra # sign. Change the -A-LB after the photo number to -L.jpg and you get this, which works.http://www.pixelartifacts.com/photos/245572011_cvomi-L.jpg
I have the share button enabled when I'm logged in, which gives me access to the page of links to just copy. In case you're interested, here's the CSS that I use:
Thank you. LB wasn't working for me, so the solution wasn't applicable. But this morning it's all hunky-dory. Thanks for the step-by-step!
My Recent Photos still works. It's also a link from my navbar. I'm not sure what the difference is, but it may be that all my recent galleries were in place before this change. Did you create galleries since the change? I'd test it, but I don't want to break my hack before I need to.
Removing a small peice of code from the url fixed the issue. It now works as it did before.
Just out of curiosity - what was the code you removed?
Hi David -
Ok, here is what I discovered.
For previously created galleries, the modification abover works fine.
For galleries recently created around the new security release, it takes you to the smugmug home page.
Check it out:

Will it be possible for the creator to have the "key" aspect of the image to also reflect on the address line of the browser? Just makes it an easy copy/paste (again) to an image link at an outside WEB site.
Just wondering if this is doable...

Is this a side-effect of these changes: now when I login and return the gallery I was viewing, I don't see any of the "logged in" stuff, like "add photos" to gallery, or edit gallery description, etc. And the "login" link still appears at bottom of page. But when I click it, I go straight to the "logged in" screen.

FYI: I'm using FF 2.*. IE7 works fine.
Looks like the bug is also affecting the control panel in FF. It's stuck on the Stats tab for me, no matter which other tabs I click. Works fine in IE7.
I am attempting to secure my site, so that it is password protected. For good measure, I have chosen the settings that keep it from being searched by Google and keep it from being included in SM searches.
However, after setting the site password through Control Panel.... I access the site and enter the password to access - no problem. However, after I get in, I am prompted for a album password on my homepage as the slideshow starts. I enter the site password and it does not work! I am repeatedly prompted for an album password.
When I then login to my SM account, I still get the album password prompt! It still does not accept the site password.
Any thoughts? Prior to these few changes, my site was working fine with never a password prompt.
I have tried this from a few different PC's in the house - same results.
viewing password = test
The slideshow code seems to prompt for a password anytime it can't get access. Some things to check:
Are you sure there's no password on the gallery in question?
If the gallery in the slideshow is unlisted, are you using the full albumID and key for the slideshow?
Is external linking enabled for the gallery?
It's also possible that you can't have a slideshow inside a password protected account because the API access that the slideshow uses might not work. You'll need an answer from Smugmug on that one.
I will post a question on the slideshow thread about whether it is supposed to work on a password-protected account.
Well, that is a bummer....
I think note of this should end up in the Flash slideshow tutorial somewhere (it may be there, I don't remember seeing it) or perhaps as a Gotcha in one of the Security discussions. Too often, developers such as myself think of security issues well after taking the time to build the functionality.
I set up a gallery to run a flash show here and it will not run. This is a family
gallery and not open to the world. Looks like the new flash show is NOT an
option for anyone with hidden/passworded family galleries and will have to
continue to use the old show or expose their family photos to the public.
What a bummer.:cry
btw, old show code runs great here and with show menu I can change
sources on the fly. Using the new show, if it worked, would required me to
create many many galleries one for each show.
btw, the show code I'm using works perfect here.
Rich and Barb are looking into it Al....
I now have the new flash show running in 32 passworded galleries and
each using passworded gallery as a source. This is the stand alone
flash code in the album description.
Only one annoyance, after entering passworded gallery with show I have to
re-enter password for source gallery even though it has the same password.
Every page refresh asks for the source PW again.
But, it's working great. Except for my IE6.
Those are all in my PW'ed family area. But a public example of show running
with multiple show sources (66) in drop menu can be seen here.
Allen, IE6 is working over here on gallery #4410495
I do get the same results regarding needing to enter the password twice. I'll do some checking around ....
