Honestly, I have no idea what’s happened: my photo album section has seemed to vanish off the face of the web. Only, all the files are still there, the database seems to still be up and running… I’ve tried repairing and restoring back-ups, the whole shebang, but with no luck. Eh?! The little plugin that links the album script to WordPress is still working perfectly though. You just can’t get to the album via its URL. Not the front end or the admin section. I wonder if it’s a conflict with a WP plugin, or if I maybe need to upgrade Coppermine?
Or perhaps it’s a sign that I should do what I’ve been considering for a while, and import the whole thing into WordPress. Makes the template easier, that way.
ETA: I upgraded Coppermine, and no luck. But then it occurred to me that the upgrade page had displayed, so it must be something template-related (I hadn’t re-uploaded the template files). So I put up new versions of those, and oh look – the photo album is back. I’m still going to change over to using a WP plugin for it sometime soon, though, to make maintenance easier in the long run.
