We had to update the server to php 7.1 and the depreciated code for the Shield Gallery broke as a result.

My friend Matt update the code for the WP based pages. But I have not had the time to work out the kinks to get it ready to re-release while I have been months deep in converting interstate-guide.com into WordPress. Hope to get to the Shield Gallery soon...

Matt fixed the old script.  :nod:
I am going to shift attention to working on the new one now.

I know this topic has gone dead, but I have been wanting to know if I would be able to upload a couple of my pictures to the gallery?

I just sent Matt an update of things in the Shield Gallery script that need fixing, plus a few tweaks. It will still be awhile before its ready for updates again.

Will post here when that finally happens.

Looks like I effed up the Shield Gallery by uploading an old php file without having downloaded the ones Matt worked on.

I messaged him to see if he has copies of the files. In the meantime the show.php file doesn't work, so the gallery won't output the page with the photo showing the shield.

Without getting long sought after Wordpress based Shield Gallery script completed and running, I am about at the point to where I am ready to just delete the whole damn thing.

Thankfully Matt had copies of the files from when he last fixed it and the Shield Gallery is working again.

Still going to consider whether or not updating the format/script is worth investing. While the current version works, I cannot add new entries or update existing ones without digging into the database.

It'd probably be easier, and better, in the long run to add a photo gallery plugin to WordPress and import all the photos from the shield gallery into the WP Media Library, and then build out new shield gallery pages right in WP.

There are TONS of different photo gallery plugins with different capabilities (all of them free), but the overall general process would be to create a gallery of all the shield photos from one state, create a shortcode of that gallery, and drop it into a page for that state, publish, and repeat for all states/provinces/individual gallery pages.

It'd be time consuming upfront to set up, but fairly easy to maintain after that, and without any major coding headaches.

Also, the shield generator should probably be retired since Flash is officially dead.
