View Full Version : Profile Enhancements - Upload Pic Progress Notification

17 Mar 2008, 05:56
This small modification at least lets members know their pictures are uploading.

Very easy to install or edit.

Open (album_picture_upload) Template

1- Find:


2- Above that add:

<script language="JavaScript">
function render(t) {

3- On the same template find:

<input type="submit" class="button" value="$vbphrase[upload_pictures]" accesskey="s" tabindex="1" />

5- Replace with:

<input type="submit" class="button" value="$vbphrase[upload_pictures]" accesskey="s" tabindex="1" onClick="render('progress')" />
<div align="center" style="display:none;" id="progress">Upload in progress, Please wait... &nbsp;<img src="/images/misc/13x13progress.gif" border="0"></div>

Of course I have a .png arrow image pointing up that is not animated, since on php a .gif file will not play while uploading.

That gives you the idea :up:

I found other information about this but I had to put it on my own way.
By the way this is my first mod, very simple of course :erm:

instead of the text you can also put a progressbar into it :)

Couldn't you use that circular pattern of dots like when you are doing an edit on a message?
