      2 option is there to make this gallery.

      if you want to use this gallery in footer or header, open your PHP file from theme folder (ex: if you want use this is footer, open your footer.php file and add this code into footer )

      if you to use this gallery in page or post. past the given code into editor.

        Got it working now, but all it says is ‘end of gallery”
        I im using the defult XML and have just pasted in the code onto the index.php where i want it.

        The title comes up and so does “end of gallery” when i roll over the blank space but no images are displaying

        Where do i place the images?

    • admin
      August 11, 2010 at 3:31 am #

      U want to add gallery in each page ? ok, create XML file for each page & upload it into plugin directory., and add the code [my_hmg=widget.xml] in each page.. in this code you can change the name of the XML file.

        I’m a wordpress beginner and I would love to use your plugin for a website, in each page or post as Beth. This is probably a very dummy question, but where exactly to you add this code: [my_hmg=widget.xml] in each page..??

        I thought it was only possible to add this code in page.php?
        How do I add this in several different pages?

        Thank you so much! Your plugin would be really helpful.

    I made an XML file for each gallery, however, none would work unless I named them “widget.xml”.

    this is what happens when I delete the “widget.xml” file, and link to the XML file that I made

    • Admin
      August 12, 2010 at 4:33 pm #

      When u use [my_hmg=widget.xml] this code in the page or post, then widget.xml file should present in the folder,

      [my_hmg=YOUR-XML-FILE-NAME]

      • Beth
        August 12, 2010 at 4:37 pm #

        That’s what I did, but for some reason it won’t acknowledge the file unless its named “widget.xml”

          August 13, 2010 at 5:48 am #

          Hi, use visual tab to past the code in the post, also make sure any space or any problem in the keyword,
          because, in the PHP code i wrote, if file name not found then it automatically consider “widget.xml” as file name.

            August 18, 2010 at 2:13 pm #

            Got the same problem. I’ve stored the different xml-files in the plugin/gallery-folder. But after pasting the code to the different pages, with different xml-file, it opens only the original “widget.xml” file.

            Is there a way to solve this? Or have I done anything wrong as well?

            Thanx again!

    Hi there,

    great plugin but I’m getting an error when I try to use it.

    I want the gallery to appear just once, at the top of index.php so I know where to put the code in there.

    The code, as written by you in widget.xml, gives no problems. The row of flowers appear. The problems start when I try to substitute my own images for yours. I change the paths, titles, links and target but when I do that I get the following:

    screenshot

    For example, this is one of my images:

    http://simonroughneen.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/spotlight-timor.jpg
    Spotlight on Timor-Leste
    http://www.simonroughneen.com/?cat=3182
    _parent

    I’m using 6 in total.

    Could you possibly tell me what I’m doing wrong? Any help at all greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Hi!
    I’ve pretty much worked this all out except I’m having the same trouble as Lily. I can’t get any file except the one named widget.xml to run.

    Sorry Gopi – you have commented that it has been solved, but I need how it was solved so I can do the same please. I need to run more than one lot and would love to know how to get this to work on a file named something other than widget.xml

    Thanks in advance

      September 11, 2010 at 12:55 pm #

      In the gallery folder u can find the default xml file(ie widget.xml), just create similar kind of xml file and use the created files in the each page.

      • Tracey
        September 11, 2010 at 1:14 pm #

        Hi – I have done this but it still picks up the widget.xml file instead of the new file I’ve created. I’ve even used the widget.xml file and just renamed it, but doesn’t work.

        Am I doing something wrong?

          If any problem in reading a file name or file name is null, it ll consider widget.xml is a file name.

          your pasting the filter code in the HTML editor Visual area right?

  11. Tracey
    September 11, 2010 at 1:43 pm #

    Yes – through the visual area. I’ve done everything as already suggested on this page, but it is still picking up the widget.xml not the new file.

      September 11, 2010 at 1:48 pm #

      open the “horizontal-motion-gallery.php” the file from the plug-in directory and check the method “my_hmg_filter_Callback” whether the variable “$my_hmg_file” working fine or not.

    Hi,

    First let me congratulate you on your great plugins. I’m using several now and will be donating tonight.

    This plugin is doing exactly what it is suppose to be doing. Of course I want it to do something else. :-) I’m working on a site where I have 11 images side by side. All have links taking them elsewhere. I want them all to show on the page with no scrolling. (Guess you might say i’m using them as buttons)

    I thought that if I sized the images correctly that it would be ok. I went in and changed the padding and borders (those that I could find) to 0px. I’m still showing what I assume to be padding to the left of the graphic when I hover over it. I’ve dropped the border to 0px an even .5px. What is causing the border/padding on the left of each image? Can I decrease that?

    Thanks for such cool plugins.

      October 4, 2010 at 6:43 pm #

      I’ve actually got the part figured out that I needed (it still scrolls but that’s ok..I added some things) I’ll do a different post on that one. Want to verify that I didn’t miss a post earlier.

      BTW, I did send a donation.

    actually i can not load images so what the process
    Beginning

    • Sleenie
      October 4, 2010 at 7:10 pm #

      When I first started using his plugins it took me a while to figure out I needed an xml editor to load new graphics. You can download an editor for free.. I use Notepad ++. Just do a Google search for it.

      Then copy the widget file to your desktop and open it in Notepad ++. Then it is easy to see what needs to be changed. You do have to load all of your graphics into your WordPress first. Then use the file location in the .xml file. Once you have made your changes them just FTP the new file back into the plugin gallery.

      I know that is not really step by step but I hope that it will get you started. Without the xml editor you won’t get far.

      Good luck.

    Ok..I’ve done some looking around and found a post on 9/11 but it has me confused. I want (and need to) use this plugin in 2 different locations on the site. the first one with [my_hmg=widget.xml] works just fine.

    I created another file and uploaded it to the samer place. This file is called widget2. So I used [my_hmg=widget2.xml] on my page. It is still picking up the first file.

    In looking at the code, based on your earlier comments, it looks like this.

    $my_hmg_file = $output[‘filename’];
    if($my_hmg_file==””){$my_hmg_file = “widget.xml”;}

    To me that says to get the widget.xml each time. I’m not a programmer so how do I change to to get whatever file I have in the shortcode?

    I’m getting near the end of this site and this is turning into a major problem. I do hope that you will see this and respond or at least someone else who knows the answer.

    This is my only remaining problem and I really need to release this site tomorrow.

    Thanks so much in advance

    I truly hope this gentleman is ok. He at one time was responsive. Now there is nothing, not even thank you for donations. I’ve had to go another route and will not likely use many of his plugins anymore. I realize that the developers write the plugins on their own time and get no money other than donations. This is why I try to donate and would continue to donate if i knew the plugins could be counted upon to work at described. I’ve noticed even his demo is know gone. That’s really too bad.

    Still works great if you only need one .xml file.

    Like I said, I hope he’s ok and becomes responsive soon. His talent is needed.

    Is there anyway to have the gallery automatically scroll once the page loads?

  25. Eva Marie
    November 29, 2010 at 3:41 am #

    Hello,

    I installed the plugin and dragged the widget to my home page. It worked fine, until I changed the links in the xml file to my images and landing pages (per step 2). I never could figure out where to place the code in step 3 – as I want it to be on my home page and I use a template. However, it worked without that step, when I used the original xml file. I’ve double-checked the modified xml file and it all looks fine. I’d appreciate any suggestions or advice on how I can get this to work.

    Thanks!

    I wonder if it is difficult to make the images loop instead of make them move with the cursor?
    Thanks for all your hard work

    This is seriously annoying. There is clearly a tiny bug here, that is stopping us all from using anything other than widget.xml in our pages. I have just invested time using your plugin based on the fact that i can have one on each page. Now after reading the whole stream of comments I find out that I can’t and although you have solved it, you aren’t updating the plugin.

    Shame as it works nicely otherwise. I’m rating it as broken though.

  35. Niraj Kumar
    May 23, 2011 at 11:49 am #

    Most of us forget to create the XML file. It has to be created manually. Take widget.xml/the_name_you_are_using and change its content to reflect your images.

    First of All Thank you for the Plugin.
    I just want to report a little bug.
    In widget.xml if there are accents between the title tags the bar will disappear.
    I solved using ’
    I think you can just add an info on the plugin page.

    Hi thank you for this plug-in.. I just have one question tho..I know you already said that I should only use this one time in a page.. and I saw the reason why.. it only renders the 1st one..but the other one appears but doesn’t do any slide motion.. and for some weird reason it just reads widget.xml even if i use widget1.xml (as the rest of the comment said)

    is it possible that i can use it more than once in a page.. i plan to use it as part of a photo gallery..

    I love your plugin, thanks! Do you know of any way to hook it into the posts, so that I can use custom fields, the_content, the_title, etc. to populate the gallery, instead of doing it through XML? I tried to do it using the loop, but of course the loop doesn’t work in plugin files. I’d love any tips. Thanks! Also, I managed to integrate this plugin with the lightbox overlay, and it looks great! I can post the code if anyone is interested.

    For lightbox
    Install prettyPhoto (if you dont have it in your theme)
    Then in horizontal-motion-gallery.php
    Line 209 change:

    $my_hmg_package = $my_hmg_package . ““;

    Hey Guys,

    I am trying to figure out how to add photos to the Slider gallery. I can’t wait – it looks great! BUT I am not finding any EASY info about how to add my photos. I have been doing some searching on how to convert my GALLERY file to XML – can you please help. BTW my Website is http://www.DailyGEMS.ca but the site I am adding it to is Green Choice Moto’s – Thanks :)

    Just doesn’t work for me. I just have an empty space, and “End of Gallery” shown. I followed all the comments above, and simply used the existing widget.xml file.

    There are certainly a lot of particulars like that to take into consideration. That could be a great point to convey up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you convey up where the most important thing will likely be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round issues like that, however I’m sure that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Both boys and girls feel the influence of just a moment’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

    same as above!!!! only reading widget.xml!

  56. Cinco
    February 7, 2012 at 4:24 am #

    Only use if you only want 1 gallery on one page – it refuses to reference more than one xml file (widget.xml). There is something wrong with the DOMDocument::load function and it will not call the file properly. Wasted ages trying to get it to work : (

    Hello!

    I´ve made a wonderful gallery thanks to this plugin. But my boss wants the same gallery settings to appear in several pages, but with different images.

    Is it possible to make this plugin corporate with the galleries that wordpress make?

    If not, how can I use this plugin on many pages/sites, but (very important) show differend pictures on each one of them?

    There´s no point in showing the same pictures in every page, I think..:)

      February 24, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

      No answer….

      And after reading all the other comments I feel sooooo sad. This plugin felt like a breaktrough, and it looks so good, but now I´ve realized that it CAN`T be used on several pages with different images.. WHY CAN´T YOU FIX IT? Look at all of us that want´s this out of this plugin… You would make lots of people happy and thankful if you fixed this problem…

      I would love to fix it myself, but I totally new at CSS, HTML, XML, FTP and everything of that… :(

      Please please please help us Gopi! *glaring at you with “the face”*

          Hey!

          Thanks for answering so fast! =)

          I found out that if I add the “widget1.xml” in the codes, I can make it appear on the side that I want to. This is what I did:

          $my_hmg_file = get_option(‘my_hmg_file’);
          if($my_hmg_file == “”)
          {
          $my_hmg_file = “widget.xml”;
          $my_hmg_file = “widget1.xml”;

          But now I wonder if you can help me with something else?

          The plugin settings says this:

          1.Drag and drop the widget
          Go to widget menu and drag and drop the “Horizontal motion gallery” widget to your sidebar location.

          2.Paste the below code to your desired template location

          3.Paste the below code to your page or post
          [my_hmg=widget.xml]
          widget.xml = is name of the XML file, it should be available in gallery folder.

          I´ve done it all, but now I have this problem:

          on the page where I added [my_hmg=widget1.xml] , the widget.xml also turns up, at the top.

          How can I tell the plugin that I want widget1.xml on one page, widget.xml on another page, and so on? I guess this command have to be in the template-file where I added

          But what shall I write? I thought that maybe I could write “my_hmg_file” instead of “show”, but it did not work. With my little knowledge of this, I think that maybe there could be possible to write in the php-template-file something like that the “page-ID-7″ shall have “widget1.xml” and so on.. But does it work that way?

          It has to be something I can do, since I now can show both xml-files in one page. I just dont want it that way…:)

          Hope you can help! =)

    Looks like there is an error with the link attribute if you use a more complex query string where it includes an &, fyi. XML no likey special characters but it looks like if you use & it doesn’t mind so much.

    Just in case anyone else has run into this or I missed it in the comments.

The problem is that it is the same gallery on all pages. Is it possible to say to name of the xml file in the php code : ?

    Hello, the theme is working fine. I do have a problem: is there a general way to keep it from showing up on every page? Will I have to access my index.php or header.php files? If so, where can I find the code? I’m assuming it will be wrapped in a “widget” tag…

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi there!

    I have just updated our website with the version 6.0 of this “Horizontal Motion Gallery” plug-in .. But there’s a problem, I really don’t know how to add my images in this version . But in the previous version I didn’t have problem working with the “widget.xml” ..

    Can you teach me how to upload in this version? or can you give me any link to download the previous versions?

    Thank You.

    Hi,

    I have installed your plugin and everything is working.
    Now I would like to use my own gallery or images but I don’t know how.
    I downloaded the latest version and but can’t understand what you mean with your answers to Q2 and Q3 in your description.

    ***Q2. Where to upload my image (Version 6.0 onwards)?
    In the admin we have separate page to manage the image directory.

    Q3. How to set height and width of the gallery?
    motion-gallery-page.css
    In the above mentioned CSS file you can change the height and width of the gallery.****

    Could you please help me?

    Thanks!
