I've created albums in Google Photos.
In Ozio Gallery menu item I set the sorting to 'Standard'.
It works perfectly, in the website I see the same order in the gallery page as in Google Photos.
But if I change the order in Google Photos, (for example drag some photo to other place) the Ozio gallery page doesn't show it. It shows the initial order. And I am unable to force it to refresh the order. I've spent hours to solve this issue, and I am very frustrated now, because I am unable to solve an easy problem: I would like to see the same sorting order in my website as in Google Photos, after I am changing the order in Google Photos....
How to do that?
Ozio Gallery would be a perfect gallery solution, but if I am unable to change the order, I won't use this gallery :(
Could somebody Carneade?
Thanks!

Hi Alexred,
Thanks for your reply and for your help.
Should I post my Google ID to public? Isn't it a security issue for me to post it public?

I use Skin Nano in Joomla 3

OK,
My Google ID: 114676398620720014096
Link to my album: https://goo.gl/photos/qMxqbP5Y4fvBivav6
Skin: Nano, Joomla 3

If you configure it, it will show the correct image order after configuring it. But when I will change the image order manually in Google Photos, it will not shown in your test site. It will be the order that was shown initially.

ok, I can reproduce the problem.
Seems a Google XML cache problem.
Please do not update the "Délvidék Kft. - Munkáink - Zsalugáterek" album, I can try to find the solution.

Hello VChris,
it is a Google Photo problem, but you can try to set your photo order from PICASA:
https://picasaweb.google.com/home

in the same album you can set the order and confirm it.
After confirm it you can see the correct order in Ozio Gallery (clear before your browser cache)

Hi Alexred,
your solution works perfect with Google PicasaWeb. I can set the ordering of images by filename which is important for me. When I change the image sorting order in PicasaWeb it appears immediately in Ozio Gallery.
But... The bad news: Google announced he will retire PicasaWeb in the near future in some months... And they say, we should use Google Photos instead, because that product is much better... Well: Google Photos is a wrong, absolutely unuseful product. For example there is no option to set the image order by filename...
And this is absolutely bad news for me.
When I set the sorting order in PicasaWeb it appears in Ozio Gallery, but this order is not shown in Google Photos.
And anything I change in PicasaWeb that is appear in Ozio Gallery, but not in Google Photos. And anything I change in Google Photos, nothing happen in Ozio Gallery...
So your solution is perfect for now, but what will be in the future?
What should I do?
I like Ozio Gallery vey much, this is an awesome component, but if I will be unable to change the image order by filename, I won't be able to use it in my site :(
Could you Carneade to find a solution in the future?

Hello VChris,
I think we can set the Photo order by Ozio Gallery Params, and when Picasa will close we try to find the correct solution  :)
