  1. To bad its require SWFAddress option enabled, else i would have used it…

  2. Well I find this thing NOT NICE
    because after the Installation I have a footer with publicity not from me!!!!!!!! and I can not get off this!!!

    And If I like to make a Deinstallation it will not work

    I can really not give any points for this…



    • you can easily deactivate the footer in the settings…!
      [ Settings -> Extras -> Footer -> Disable... ]

      keep calm! it’s great work anyway… perhaps you should read the documentation, first ;)

    • Reply Artur Filipiak Posted 2 years ago

      Rolf, easy dude :)
      There is no installator / deinstallator. “Installator” is a primitive php script which only copying files from powerPack folder to your gallery folders…

      At installation proggress you had info what is going on currently. There’s nothing “magic” and difficult to understand…
      More than this, in “Installator” is a documentation and manual installation guide. Before posting this message you should read and think a little, because that what you wrote sounds little funny ;)


  3. hy

    after i had install it i can’t access to my admin part …
    i have i fatal error from ” function strip_icon() “.
    Do anyone know how to solve it ?

  4. Great, this is what I have been waiting for!
    Unfortunately it is not possible to write any comment or any name when in fullscreen mode.
    If I change back to the windowed mode it is possible to type in anything and after pressing the “Send” -Button the comment is correctly stored,
    In fullscreen mode I can paste any text into the comment field or into the name field.and it is possible to send the comment.
    But as I said, it is not possible to type in anything in fullscreen mode, only in wondowed mode it works.
    Is this a bug or have I done something wrong when configuring the powerpck?

      Hello Bernhard.

      This was explained in support thread -> http://imagevuex.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=6947
      This is not a bug, this is related to Adobe flash player specification (check your imagevue contact form).

      • Reply Yann Gautheron Posted 2 years ago

        Maybe you can add a “disable fullscreen” when we cann the form ? Because right now, it’s just unusable… I can’t understand why Adobe disabled all the keyboard standard keys in fullcreen !

        • Reply Yann Gautheron Posted 2 years ago

          mjau-mjau added the same behavior for the contact form : if fullscreen is enabled, when we click in a textfield the fullscreen is automatically disabled. I think it is a good workaround.

          Can you add this to the comment form of your module too ?
          Users can’t know that they must disabl fullscreen to type something !
          Everything else is working good, and it’s a shame Adobe has’nt changed mind yet about this stupid “security” behavior of flash player…

          Keep good work !

  5. Great addon. only for footer featured this worth.

    Will be good that you make a new module (with support of imagevuex team) for we can use embed fonts at least in main menu. An external fla/swf where we can embed fonts or algo.

    May be possible load a swf in footer with html?


    • Reply Artur Filipiak Posted 2 years ago

      Hello Gasonline.

      Thanks for your comment and suggestions.
      I have already conception to make powerPack CSS-suitable with font embeding at runtime.
      The footer is focused to improve in next release.


  6. Reply Thomas Hauptlin Posted 2 years ago

    very cool

    Artur, thanks so much !!!

  7. Artur, have an estimated time for powerPack CSS-suitable with font embeding at runtime?
    I think that this is the most important thing and is lacking in this application to be 10.
    You are doing an amazing job to make the best gallery in a cms, I think you should charge for this PowerPack.
    I gladly pay for this.


    • Reply Artur Filipiak Posted 2 years ago

      This will require more time (much more) as I have to change core of powerPack and most of the code.
      Text in flash is a big pain to work on, and my first tests shows me how difficult it’s realy (I’m not a big flash coder).
      Before christmass I want release stable and fast version of current powerPack (maybe non-SWFAddress) and then I’ll work on new core.


  8. Hi i like your power pack could you tell me how to add a hit counter to the footer like your site? i have a php counter but when i add it to the line it wont work any ideas?

  9. I would like to know as well…

  10. Hi, I have a problem with the compilation of the table “votes” on my mysql server.
    For security reasons, the system does not allow the automatic installation of the power pack, and especially the table “votes” that I should then fill in manually. Only I do not have knowledge of mysql .. as .. even with that I fill out the table data directly to my database?

    Sorry for my English but I use google ..

  11. Please post technical questions in powerpack support forum.


  12. Great work! Thanks :)

  13. I’ve been trying to install this powerpack, but after I click “install” in the swf installer, I don’t manage to choose any theme, it tells me I’m trying to install it to a fresh copy, and I can’t choose any of the themes… The buttons “Use” and “Install Powerpack” aren’t available for clicking… Can you please help?

  14. Hello . A have a problem on first step of installation ..:( on Powerpack v 2.0 – when i try to login with my admin account it is give an error.
    Do you can please help me ? :)
    Thx !

  15. Hello. I Like integre the Westbook plugin in my website, but i dont have posibiliti. For example, te url:
    have into Menu a Guestbook.

    I dont know how I can.


    (sorry for mi english)

  16. Dear,
    Few questions regarding comments and guestbook administration:
    1. how do we administrate guestbook entries (remove, edit, reinitiate…)?
    2. same questions for comments on photos?

    Thanks in advance for your answers

  17. Hi Artur,
    your link not work…
    can you uploud it again?


  18. Reply andrea marucci Posted 2 years ago

    Two simple questions

    1 – Can I enable/disable the single features? For example I would need only the footer and, as in your site, the possibility to show the latest uploaded pictures.
    2 – If I don’t use the vote system I need the MySQL DB anyway?


  19. well its a huge learning curve to grt to grips with using and setting all features on imagevue/powerpack but well worth the effort.

    well pleased up to now.

  20. Hello

    I dont seem to have the ad new news button like yours

  21. Reply Yann Gautheron Posted 2 years ago


    Just a little issue when le webserver has PHP Notice written by default the comments cannot be parsed because the XML is corrupted like that :

    Notice: Undefined index: alternativeXmlPath in /home/abalam/se-marient.biz/www/souvenirs/extras/powerPack/XML_reader.php on line 3

    <commented name="

    You should avoid this with an update of : XML_reader.php

    $targetXML = $_GET['xmlTargetPath'];


    if (isset($_GET['xmlTargetPath'])) {
    $targetXML = $_GET['xmlTargetPath'];

    Keep good work !


  22. Since this is a 3rd party module, it might be better to take all questions directly into the Powerpack forum:

  23. Reply Alfi Septandhi Posted 2 years ago

    How to remove powerpack’s add ons??

  24. i have bought 3 licenses for this software..can you please reply to my mails.

    the last one i installed worked fine with powerpack then i noticed that the add news button was not available to ad news items..this worked initially but dissapeared..it has also dissapeared on my other sites also..i have looked at everything i can but cant get this add news button to appear

    what is happening here ?

    • I believe this might be related to the recent Flash Player update that broke some things in Imagevue, and probably Powerpack.

      Even my daughter complains that she can’t do homework on myimaths.com since it hangs up between challenges.

      We are looking into this, and hope Adobe will release an update rather soon.

  25. Hi Keith. I see you have two recent comments in the blog from Friday and Saturday, but we have not received any e-mails from you. This Powerpack module is a 3rd party module that we unfortunately can’t answer questions about … You need to post questions about the Powerpack module in the forum here:

    Also, even if I did have the knowledge to answer questions about the Powerpack, I would certainly want to check the link to your gallery to see whats going on, so I suggest you post it with your question.

  26. Reply Andreas Goldhahn Posted 1 year ago

    Hi, i installed Powerpack 2.2.2 on Imagevue 2.8.4 plus thumbnail patch (both). But the Powerpack news module only shows text entries. New images, votings and comments are not shown. If I’m logged in at powerpack admin, the news module runs perfect. And as I logged out, the module don’t shows new images, votings and comments. Where is the problem?
    Link of news section of my gallery: http://www.vogtland360.de/site/galerie/index.php#/News/

    thanks for help,

    regard Andreas

  27. i have asked the question 3 times now and not had a answer.
    i have 3 sites with powerpack and all of them have the same problem.
    Q why is the button to ad new news keeps dissapearing? all oyher liks there but not the ad new button and the padlock button..

    i have reloaded new version and the button is initally available then it its gone and does not come back..

    • Hi Keith … I replied to your here some time ago. As mentioned, we did not build the powerpack, and it is a 3rd party plugin. You may use, but we don’t support it, but you may get support from the specific forum for this module:

  28. Hey Artur,

    first of all i would like to thank you! Great work man!

    But i have an problem :)
    After i installed the powerpack, my audiobar is missing.
    I’ve tried to enable and disable the Audioplayer Back ) Makes the background under audioplayer text, similar to the main buttons background)

    But nothing happend.
    What can i do to solve this problem?

    my second question is:
    how can i remove the news on site button in the headder?

    thanks i appreciate it

  29. Is Power pack currently compatible with imagebueX 2.8.6?

  30. Hello Arthur !

    I just realized that in the new version of PowerPack 2.2.2 you forgot to add function to move icons (News,Language,Full Screen) not only from top to bottom but also from right to left,
    Ex: http://imageshack.us/f/705/55525578.png/
    which was possible in the old version,
    Ex: http://imageshack.us/f/607/82567220.png/
    please very much tell me how to add this option in the new version as it was the old version or do an update of Powerpack with my request because i need necessarily to move icons from right to left !
    This option is located on : Themes > Edit > Powerpack > Main Display .! Thank you in advance !
    And one more thing : I also found a small error on installation proces it is tells me that “i am using default theme. CSS in this Theme Can’t be updated.
    Change your theme and refresh this page.” even if i use another custom theme the error persists, I ask meny users and found out that several people encountered with this error.
    I hope you will return as soon as possible with solutions to these two problems !
    Thank You !

  31. Hello

    Is this still supported in v2.8.9 / v2.8.10? I contacted the developer and he said that he is no longer updating it. So if issues do occur, we’re on our own…

    Is anyone aware of whether you need to do anything special to get this to work in the latest version?

    I don’t want to mess up my install! Hah!

    Thank you for your suggestions.

  32. For support please use powerpack forum instead, as I’m not often in this part of imagevue website.

    Thanks in advance,

    • Thank you Arthur!

      Good idea to post your plans in multiple areas, as the Imagevue site is still very foreign to me after many months.

      I am still having problems running the latest version of Imagevue on my server. Instead I am using the old old old v2.8.9! It is the only one that installs smoothly! I have no issues with other software, so perhaps I can still run your PowerPack software? :)

      I would love to know how to disable whatever it is in the new version, that prevents installation, but I doubt I’ll get anywhere quickly! :(

      Thanks for your continued community spirit and contribution!


  33. Installed PowerPack V2.2.2 (Imagevue X2.8.1) for imagevue_x2_8_10_3.
    Everything tuned correctly and working fine.
    Thank you Artur Filipiak!

  34. Great, this is what I have been waiting for!
    Unfortunately it is not possible to write any comment or any name when in fullscreen mode

  35. Hello!
    I have a couple of questions. Could someone please help me with this?
    Thanks :)

    #1. How can the admin edit and/or remove comments?
    Do you have to go to each and ever photo and check the comments?
    Is there somewhere in the admin where I can review ALL feedback? There are too many spammers out there these days. :P

    This would be a nice feature to have.

    #2. There seems to be a 7 second delay when adding a rating to an image. If slideshow mode is enabled, this often causes problems as you see a message saying “Thank you for your feedback” one or two images later.

    Is there any way to reduce this delay? All other websites appear to add the feedback immediatley, with less than a half second delay.
    I would be interested to learn how to reduce this delay.
    Thank you

    I appreciate all the time and effort put into this PowerPack module add-on.
    Thank you.

  36. Is this popular on ebay?

  39. Hi,

    Great module . . . if I can only get the comments module to work.

    When I create a comment, the number in the word bubble increases, but the comments don’t show up. I don’t get an email notification (not sure if this is supposed to happen). I am using the trial version of imagevue on localhost. My email should be working ok – I successfully tested the “contact” form.

    I don’t get any error messages.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated…

  45. My name is Elizabeth Taylor from UK. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is DR ABUBAKAR ([email protected]) he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 4years. I really loved him, but his family was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told DR ABUBAKAR what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 8 days when i returned to UK, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is [email protected]
