Description
Turn your vBulletin Album system to an organized Gallery. Watch presentation!

The basic idea of Scandal's vBGallery is to organize vBulletin Albums AND forum attachments (pictures) to a section with lots of functions (categories, search, latest objects, statistics, menus etc).
Designed for vBulletin 4.2.0 (otherwise you must add the navbar links manually).



Features:
- Categories system for Albums (like Forums for threads)
- Five (5) levels of subcategories allowed
- Album, picture and comment search
- Who browsing Gallery (= Gallery Home, Albums, Pictures)
- Gallery statistics
- Forum attachments gallery (with ability to act it as category)
- Pages: latest pictures - latest albums - latest comments (with feature to turn them to "All")
- "My Comments" feature (display all user comments)
- My Pictures/Albums in "this" category
- Ability to set custom statusicons to categories
- Notifications to users with "uncategorized" albums to move them
- Ability to hide empty categories (= with 0 albums)
- Admincp environment
- No annoying copyright info

Language Packs:
- Deutsch (Sie) - Deutsch (Du)


Installation:

1. Upload all files of folder "upload" to your forum root.
2. Import *xml product.
3. (Important) Open template album_edit and find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

add below:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Done!

Upgrade:

1. FIRST OF ALL: Upload and replace all files of folder "upload" to your forum root.
2. THEN: Import XML product with "Allow Overwrite" to YES.

Who can view vBGallery;
Access to vBGallery has all members who belongs to usergroups with "Can View Albums" to YES.

What if I decide to turn off or uninstall vBGallery;
You are back to Albums without data lose (except the category of each Album - function of this hack).

How could I change the size of Gallery's thumbnails?

vBGallery use the thumbnail size you have set via admincp. To change it go to:
Admincp > Options > Message Attachment Options
... and set your value to "Thumbnail Size"
... afterwards you must rebuild attachment thumbnails at: Maintenance > General Update Tools > Rebuild Attachment Thumbnails

Takes too much space. There is the possibility of putting three albums per line?

No, it uses the css and logic of Forumdisplay. Maybe 'll change it to next versions.
You can increase or dicrease the number of Albums per page in Gallery Display.

Suggestions for the next release:

- Inclusion of links on Navbar or navtab
- Able to add more than one album in the grid row
- Users can suggest categories and these go for moderation

Congratulations modification, is excellent!

This looks nice!

Any chance of the developer producing a Photopost vBGallery to vBalbums importer?

Cheers,

Regs.

A Photopost Pro importer would be awesome.

Feature suggestions:
- Grid layout for album overviews.

Hi:

I like this mod better than the previous, but still lack a few, such as automatically slide photo, arrows for next photo and previous photo, plus thumbnails and have it hide or unhide. Able to display picture info or hide it.

If this is going to be next release, it is a perfect.

Installed, voted, and nominate.

Victor
