    I'm having a problem with FAlbum. I installed it and activated it, but when I try to go to the directory to view the pictures, it just takes me back to the root WPMU page.

    EX:
    http://blog.wpmusite.com/photos/

    goes to

    http://wpmusite.com/ with a 404 error...

    EDIT: now it just goes to http://blog.wpmusite.com

    Chances are it is a problem with your htaccess.

    A couple of things about my stuff, falbum 0.6.4, htaccess that comes with wpmu, wpmu from feb 17, 2006. In Falbum options we have fancy urls turned on.

    The falbum htacces needs to be near the top ofyour htaccess, in my example below I included the wpmu htaccess above and below the falbum stuff just to give an idea of where i placed it. You should also notice that /wp-inst/ was added into the falbum line, wont work without it, you will also notice that we called our falbum page "gallery" you can call it whatever you want when you set it up.
    htaccess looks like...

    # Rewrite http://www.domain.com to domain.com
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.(.*)
    RewriteRule ^(.*) http://%1/$1 [R,L]

    #Falbum
    RewriteRule ^gallery/?([^/]*)?/?([^/]*)?/?([^/]*)?/?([^/]*)?/?([^/]*)?/?([^/]*)?/?([^/]*)?/?([^/]*)?/?$ /wp-inst/wp-content/plugins/falbum/wp/album.php?$1=$2&$3=$4&$5=$6&$7=$8 [QSA,L]

    Does this make FAlbum work with any blog created?

    In a nutshell yes.
    I have put the plugin in the regular plugin folder, so each blog that wants to use it has to activate it. Then they need to configure it on a per blog basis. If I remember correctly it will add one table to the db and names it wp_?_falbum_cache (? being the blog number).

    The one downside, is whatever name you give it in the htaccess re-write rule, every blog has to use the same name. For the domain where I installed it, we called it "gallery" (you can se this in the re-write rule in the above post).

    hope this helps

    Yes, that is what I thought so I put 2 lines of the same code in the htaccess. One is gallery, other is photos, and I edited the FAlbum admin panel to let the users know that they had to name thiers either gallery or photos for it to work.

    Thanks for your help!

    I'm using the latest falbum-release with MU, but only for the "mainblog".

    I've added the lines from the falbum options-page after enabling the friendly urls to the .htaccess like I should - and that's it.

    (Yea: I'm running MU with subdirs)

    Hey ergate, you still out there? We're trying to get Falbum to work in a subdomain install of WPMU. We're using Falbum 0.6.9, and it looks like it updates the .htaccess for us. But, trying to navigate to the friendly URLs we specified doesn't work.

    I'm not sure what the next step is, after the Flickr authentication/token/config step. There doesn't apear to be any concise documentation on using Falbum, just installing it. Are there tweaks we have to make to WPMU shared templates? Do users need to do something?

    Help me, ergate, you're our only hope!

    FAlbum 0.7.0 works bootifully out the box, just follow the instructions carefully and don't forget the htaccess as explained above. Also the instructions mention the album.php file for each of your themes, if you skip this it will look terrible.
