Plogger - PHP gallery system

Quote taken from the website:
"Plogger is the next generation in open-source photo gallery systems. A web application not bloated with superfluous features or complicated configuration settings. Plogger is a simple yet powerful tool — everything you need to share your images with the world. Plogger is your photos integrated into your website, a fully featured photo sharing package with an attractive and easy to use administrative interface that makes managing your galleries a breeze. Integrating our gallery software into your website is as easy as inserting three lines of PHP code. And did we mention the price? Absolutely Free. Plogger requires a server setup with at least MySQL v3.23, GD1.0, and PHP4."

Adobe Flash email links

When invoking an email link from within Flash (using the getURLmailto:email@somewhere.com) you may find that Internet Explorer opens a new blank window. This doesn't happen in Firefox. To resolve this issue simply remove the target parameter, see below.

ActionScript code before:
on(release){
getURL("mailto:springheadpark@cpplc.com","_blank");
}

ActionScript code after:
on(release){
getURL("mailto:springheadpark@cpplc.com");
}

For those of you out there still developing for IE6 (eek!) then this may help with providing PNG support. The cool thing about this implementation is that it supports background-repeat and background-position in CSS.
