Adding Piwigo to my existing website

Hi,
I am a newbie and trying to make my website and I wanted to use piwigo for my album. I have a problem going back to my homepage when I got already inside the album.

If my piwigo url is : www.example.org/album, how do I make a link inside my piwigo album to send me out of it and back to my url homepage which is www.example.org?

Thanks

use the localfileseditor (plugins), look at the  "config_default.inc.php" , there is a section

// links : list of external links to add in the menu. An example is the best
// than a long explanation :

how to make links in the menue

the example for you look like so:

$conf['links'] = array(
  'http://www.example.org' => array('label' => 'my Homepage', 'new_window' => false, 'eval_visible' => 'return true;'),
);

the "config_default.inc.php" is good documented

don´t make then changes in the original "config_default.inc.php", only with the localfileseditor in the  "local/config/config.inc.php "

Re: Adding Piwigo to my existing website

Hi mol,
Thanks for you reply.

I found the file: "config_default.inc.php" inside the "include" folder. Inside the "config_default.inc.php", I  found the code that says:

$conf['links'] = array();
// random_index_redirect: list of 'internal' links to use when no section is defined on index.php.

but you said that I should not make any changes in it. So I left it unchanged.

I searched for this file that you said I should be making changes:
localfileseditor in the  "local/config/config.inc.php "

but I could not find that file. Instead, there is another file named: "localconf.inc.php"  inside the "plugins/LocalFilesEditor/include" folders.

Could this "localconf.inc.php" be the one you are referring to as:  "local/config/config.inc.php " ?

Here is what's inside the "localconf.inc.php" that I found:

<?php

if (!defined('PHPWG_ROOT_PATH')) die('Hacking attempt!');

$edited_file = PHPWG_ROOT_PATH.PWG_LOCAL_DIR . "config/config.inc.php";

if (file_exists($edited_file))
{
  $content_file = file_get_contents($edited_file);
}
else
{
  $content_file = "<?php\n\n/* ".l10n('locfiledit_newfile')." */\n\n\n\n\n?>";
}

$template->assign('show_default', array(
  array(
    'URL' => LOCALEDIT_PATH.'show_default.php?file=include/config_default.inc.php',
    'FILE' => 'config_default.inc.php'
    )
  )
);

$codemirror_mode = 'application/x-httpd-php';

?>

If this is the correct file, how am I going to edit this so I could get the link that I wanted?

I could, most of the time recognize php code and what they do. But because I am newbie, I could not come up with my own code yet....

Thanks again for your help.

Re: Adding Piwigo to my existing website

Don't make changes to the folder you found in your file.  Because as Piwigo is updated/upgraded, those changes will be overwritten.

Bunch of stuff deleted because it's unnecessary, no strike through code available.

Okay, re-reading your post, you already have it installed. You make your changes in the window shown in my attachment. Changes shown in that window are for my gallery.

Hi !  lisaviolet and mol,

I thank you so much for your help.

Lisaviolet,  the screenshot you had showed me had guided me to the files that I was searching for...

and....

Mol, I used the code snippet you had given me in editing the file that I needed to edit.

Finally, I got what I wanted to do. Everything works now.

Thank you so much to both of you !!!!
