View Full Version : Social Group and Album Enhancements - Random User Album Thumbnails

I found a simple script to random thumbnails from all albums. All you do is drop the script in the thumbnail directory and call it using the following.

<div style="text-align:center"><img src="http://www.yoursite.com/yourforumdirectory/your-thumnail-directory/0/rotate.php" style=" text-align:center;" alt="Some alt crap here"> </div>No editing of the file itself needed unless you want to rotate pages or other file types. I'm using this with my UA Sidebar 3.0.1 Mod (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=166983) and it works flawlessly. I put this in beta with hopes others will help out and get the albums a little closer to what they should be.

Not sure why all album thumbnails are being stored in /0/ directory though. Might make for a huge freaking folder.

I'm looking for a way to remove the MD5 prefix from the thumbnail file name so I can at least link the thumbnails to the full size images. Haven't had any luck so far.

Script is courtesy of http://www.hiveware.com/imagerotator.php so make sure all credit goes to them.

cool idea, making the thumb link to full size pic would be ideal! I'll wait to see if you get that figured out.

Is there a way to specific a specific user's album?

I don't think any of this will be possible using this script. I'm going to try to make a completely separate mod from scratch for this. All the required info is in 2 database tables by the looks of it.

I'll get to this after I touchup my UAsidebar mod.

This might be dumb, but I can't find the thumbnail directory. I checked all folders.

you have to move the album pictures from the database into the filesystem first.

Problem is that also private pics are shown

Would be nice if this didn't show the private albums, hopefully it will be updated. Thanks, rg.

Thanks

I installed this and it works, but I would like to load around 20 different random thumbnails. Can anybody help please?

Edit: Got what I was looking for, uninstalled this.
