Highslide upgrade path

Hello! After some time off, I need to start publishing client review galleries again. Using LR CC2015, and I see that my previous purchase of TTG Highslide Gallery Pro 2.0.3 is not functioning. What should I do moving forward?
Thanks!

Re: Highslide upgrade path

The available gallery plug-ins are CE4 Gallery and CE4 Client Response Gallery.
If you're working with clients, then CE4 Client Response Gallery is your best choice.

If you want to streamline things and unlock more features, pair CRG with Publisher. There's a bundle that will do that for you:

And here's a post that will describe the different deployment options for CE4 CRG:

Re: Highslide upgrade path

The other TTG components I have are equally old, so I'm guessing the bundle with Publisher is the way to go.
Are all of these plug-ins toast? And if so, are they all outdated enough that any upgrade pricing doesn't apply?
TTG Auto Index 3.3
TTG Horizon 1.2
TTG LR Pages 1.2
TTG Pages 3.7.1
TTG XML Album Index 1.41

Thanks again

Re: Highslide upgrade path

The update to Lightroom cc 2015 made many of the old TTG plug-ins unusable. (I think a couple of the CE2 plug-ins still work in LR CC.)

No upgrade prices will apply since those plug-ins are really, really old wink

Re: Highslide upgrade path

The CE4 suite of plug-ins are quite an improvement, making use of HTML5, CSS3, etc. There will be some new things to get used to compared to the plug-ins you were used to using, like the online component (ttg-be)
If you do the the Client Response Bundle, Matt has a tutorial to get you up and running:
http://ce4.theturninggate.net/docs/doku.php?id=ce4_104

And I've got a bunch of random tips over at my ttg-tips site.

Re: Highslide upgrade path

I'm working through the installation via Matt's tutorial currently smile
Do I want the web component files in the public_html folder, or truly on the top level, i.e. on the same level as the public_html folder?
Once I get the basics set up, I'll check out your tips!

Re: Highslide upgrade path

the public_html/ folder is the top level of your web site. So make sure everything goes inside of the public_html/ folder.

Sounds like Rod has this topic well in hand. I just want to add that the existing bundles were designed specifically with legacy users, such as yourself, in mind. They provide a way to buy into upgrades at a discount.

Re: Highslide upgrade path

Thanks for all of the help guys!
Next problem encountered: I've customized and uploaded the auto index page, and tried to get the menu links to mimic those on the rest of my website. Rather than use 'galleries' as CE4 calls them, I have the page under 'Client'.  For the rest of the menus' targets, I entered in such things as "www.daleheise.com/index.html" for the home link. However just on the CE4 page the links turn up as "www.daleheise.com/Client/www.daleheise.com/index.html" resulting in broken links.
Any thoughts?

Re: Highslide upgrade path

looks like you forgot the http:// in front of the www..... part

in reality, you could use urls like this

home:   /
client:  /client/
blog: http://blog.daleheise.com
about: /about.html
Contact: /contact.html
