I'm getting this error all of a sudden as well. I wonder if there is something wrong with the feed because my site has been working fine and i haven't touched anything regarding this.

Cool berttrandleroy,


any idea when this issue will be resolved, looking forward to learning how to use Orchard to build a website for my wifes buisness needs.

look forward to bugging brain cells in here as i am not an advanced user, my basic knowledge is only a little HTML which i done 5 or 6 years ago so as you can imagine ill probably be on here a lot.

It's a redirect issue. While we fix this you can use the real gallery url as explained in Kris' blog:

I will also change Orchard to use this url by default.

Choose the package file that you downloaded and away you go ...

Hi Gents,

Error loading extensions from gallery source 'Orchard Gallery'. The remote name could not be resolved: ''.

Seems to be down again?

You must be using a very old version of Orchard. This url hasn't been used for years, and I disabled it recently to prevent high traffic due to the auto update feature used with this version. The bandwidth it takes is humongous.
