View Full Version : 2 Scripts on same html file.

04-15-2007, 06:00 PM
1) Script Title: PHP Photo Album script

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/php-photoalbum.htm

3) Describe problem:
Hi everyone,i have a question.i tested the script "PHP Photo Album script" and works very well,but i want to use this script twice on the same html file.(for other photos)
The problem is when click on "page 2,3..." the thumbnails that appear are from the first gallery,probably because the two scripts have the same link for "next photos".
What can i do? :eek:

You could change the variable names and function names just a little bit to where the two scripts are different (variable and function wise).

Hope this helps.

If change the variable names and function names i think the result will be the same,take a look at these lines:
<script type="text/javascript">
for (i=1; i<Math.ceil(galleryarray.length/totalslots)+1; i++)
document.write('<a id="navlink'+i+'" href="javascript:jumptopage('+i+')\">Page'+i+'</a> ')
The result of jumptopage('+i+') will be the same for the two scripts (2,3,4..etc) independent from the names of variables. :(

You would have to change the function name "jumptopage" to something else as well. Use the following code where you want the second gallery to be displayed.


Header("content-type: application/x-javascript");

function returnimages2($dir=".") {
$file = array();
if($handles = opendir($dir)) {
while(false !== ($theFile = readdir($handles))){
if(eregi($patterns, $theFile)){
$filedates=date ("M d, Y H:i:s", filemtime($theFile));
echo 'galleryarray2[' . $curimages .']=["' . $theFile . '", "'.$filedates.'"];' . "\n";


echo "var galleryarray2=new Array();" . "\n";

The code that goes in the body:

<script src="getpics2.php" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

return tempcontainers

function jumptopages(pg){
var startpoints=(pg-1)*totalslot
var ys=1;

document.getElementById("slides"+j).innerHTML=(typeof galleryarray2[startpoints+j]!="undefined")? buildimages(startpoints+j) : ""

var curimages=0
for (y=0; y<dimensions.split("x")[1]; y++){

if (curimages<galleryarray2.length)
document.write('<div id="slides'+curimages+'" class="slideshow">'+buildimages(curimages)+'</div>')
document.write('<br style="clear: left" />')

function popuplinkfuncs(imgsrcs){
if (popupsettings[0]==1){
var popwins=open(imgsrcs.href, "popwins", popupsettings[1])
return false
return true


<!--Below HTML code refers to the navigational links for the gallery-->

<div id="navlinks">

for (n=1; n<Math.ceil(galleryarray2.length/totalslot)+1; n++)

Tested, and works. Hope this helps
