 I initially left the full Symbiostock logo in and incorporated it with mine but was not happy with it.  When I saw HitVector's I prefered his (her) idea as I feel it will let our clients know what we are part of as we will have to find a way of telling them as well as getting other photographers involved :D

I'm in.

Hosted at bluehost. Seems fine by now.



I like your tagline "part of symbiostock network". Ok if i add that to my logo too?


Sure. It's our brand. and reinforce the network idea.

For those looking for a test partner for their network, feel free to use http://www.backyardstockphotos.com

I've got about 30 images online now and am adding more, so you should get some reasonable matches. To answer another question earlier. You only see the other partner when you do a search for an image - it doesn't appear on the home page.

Some plugins that I use on my clipartillustration.com site - I'm sure there are modern ones.

FIRST AND FOREMOST

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/ < you want this

Others



I have loaded this plug-in and spent some time trying to make it work with my stock images.... any suggestions on how to integrate the two?

I've looked at this as well, but I don't think we want to upload even more images - we need to point it at our existing ones and make sure that when you click on an image from the gallery it creates, it links to the purchase page. I'm leaving that as too much for me just now - and if I get to my 5000 images on the site, it will be an enormous and pretty useless gallery anyway. Perhaps it would make sense to choose 30 of your really best images and do the linking from image to the purchase page.

theruchos has done a nice approach where there is a display by category in the top menu. Not sure how that was done, but that is an approach that could work for me.

I added this to my sidepanel using the text widget. Feel free to share/use/edit. Any ideas on where to link it to? Leo do you have a preference?

Photo AND vectors. Maybe video? Music? Who knows...

I would make sense to link it to http://www.symbiostock.com/ so that people read about it

Yes I did that but it does not work,my guess is that travelling light did not activate the network yet

Correct!

Enabled now and I can see myself from your site. It's broken for me browsing the network until I can get open_basedir unset - my php.ini setting is being overridden, probably by httpd.conf.

great it works I can see your thailand pic:) However like I was saying in another thread if you do a china search from my site it should display your picture but it does so I guess it needs to be corrected somewhere

It looks as if the search only goes to the network after it has found something on your own site. If you have nothing, then it fails without looking at the network.

gave up on 1and1 for the moment, and signed up with justhost.com for $3.95/mo (looked at bluehost but they charged me $142 for a 3 year contract without a confirmation screen to show me the real cost!)

  install to non root was easy  http://cascoly-images.com/pix

i'll get the networking page updated again later today  http://cascoly.com/symbiostock-network.asp  please also update when you change your current  webpage to a symbiostock site

Got mine up and running (in beta) - still have a few pages to dust down.

http://www.travelwitness.net/

Hosted on JustHost - so far so good.

Found a few search and comments bugs, but on the whole I think Leo has done a fantastic job.

I love that it's on Word Press and can be skinned however we want, it's already shaping up to be far more flexible than Ktools.

Hi Matt
It's looking good, not sure what you have done though as the search is not working on your site, I wonder if your deleting the category page is the cause. I only say this as it is the first time I have seen searches not working and first time seen categories on main page all deleted.

The categories drop down uses keyword tags, it works for most of it but it gets stuck on some of the keywords. Hopefully Leo will come in and shed some light on it.

You have the category drop downs and any keyword listed there seems to work but none of your others.  You have made the "real" category page into something else
"
Oops!

You need to select a Subject from the - Categories - drop down menu.

Please try again.
"

It might be it needs the "real" category page to work.   If you really don't want them to show you might be able to make the text the same colour as the background

I got a bit stuck to be honest.

I didn't want to 'categorise' every photo as it is too time consuming, so I used keyword tags instead - for the menu.

Maybe I need to add a new list in the oops page to make it less confusing?

After I have moved my site to bluehost it is starting to take shape and I thought it's time to say officaly Hello in the forum  :)
Although there is a lot of work to do I am totally excited that it is allready technically live. I really think Symbiostock is a great idea and I hope it will grow quickly.
So if anyone wants to visit my site www.flashstockphoto.com and likes to give me some feedback or suggestions for improvement you are very welcome.
