Photo Gallery - more than 1 page in a website that has a photo gallery

Hi There,

I have 2 separate web pages I am putting a photo gallery. I complete the 1st page and insert the photo gallery into the second page and it gives me the same file for the 1st page. If I replace the images on the 2nd page, it over-writes the first page. How do I create 2 separate web pages with unique photos for each? For instance page 1 has Gallery, page 2 has Gallery2.


the gallery saves all settings in two XML files in the "Gallery_files" folder (by default):
"image_list.xml" and "config.xml".

So if you have "page 1" and "page 2" in the same folder, they possibly
rewrite the same XMLs in the same "Gallery_files" folder.

In the current version of the gallery you can select any
location for gallery files.

Gallery tab => Files => Config XML Path
Gallery tab => Files => XML Image List Path

Make sure that each instance of the gallery has unique "playlist.xml" (and "config.xml").



  1. Hi Dmitry,

    I'm having the same problem.

    Do I understand correctly that I must create another "Gallery_files" folder, but with a different name (i.e. "Pg1Gallery_files" and "Pg2Gallery_files", then within each folder, go into the "image_list.xml" and "config.xml" files and change the names of the photos I want to use for each photo gallery?

  2. This did not answer my question. I have one page that I would like to place 2 galleries. Both have unique Gallery_file and Gallery_image folder. They work in one page but both of the background music files are playing. How to i install the galleries without them starting up automatically?
