PhotoPlog: The Pro Gallery - Version 2.1.6 for vBulletin 4.2.1

This is a full-fledged and completely integrated image gallery add-on for vBulletin. No template edits are necessary. This is the same version that was licensed for sale back in the vBulletin 3 days, but it has been upgraded to vBulletin 4.2.1 and is being offered without charge and is not feature-limited. You get the full pro version.

It comes with various thumb, image, and display settings, has the ability to determine and display EXIF information, is integrated with several packages including Highslide, and you can set a number of usergroup and category permissions, moderate comments and files, add custom fields, FTP import, mass move, and more.

Integrated packages (all are the most recent packages available as of 09 June 2013):
  • Highslide JS 4.1.13
  • JHead 2.97
  • CKEditor 4.1.1
  • jQuery 1.10.1

PhotoPlog Pro 2.1.6 has been developed for the following version of vBulletin:
  • vBulletin 4.2.1 (fresh install)

PhotoPlog Pro 2.1.6 has been tested on the following browsers:
  • Firefox 21.0
  • Internet Explorer 10.0.5

Check out the screenshots.

How to upgrade from PhotoPlog Pro v.2.1.5 to PhotoPlog Pro v.2.1.6?

You can follow the readme file, but this is a small change to fix a bug I inadvertently introduced
(sorry!!) when I moved the code around. All you need to do is one minute of work as follows:
  • FTP these three files from the PhotoPlog ZIP:

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

  • Reimport the following XML file via the vB ACP:

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

    Do NOT uninstall !!!
    Do allow overwrite.

How to upgrade from any other version of PhotoPlog to PhotoPlog Pro v.2.1.6?
  • Backup first and then follow the upgrade instructions in the readme file.

Additional questions...
Will there be a PhotoPlog version for vBulletin 5? Probably not. My understanding is that vBulletin 5 already includes a gallery.
So what happened to you anyway? Personal issues. My sincerest apologies to anyone negatively affected by my absence.
What about GARS, GAB, GAZ, GAL, and GeekMart? I'm not sure if I'll update these, and probably not anytime soon.

Great job :)

I like CKEditor 4.1.1 in screen-shot
Any chance to merge it into the forum also? VB4.2.1

Can the image files be stored in a remote server?

It's amazing to see you back. Hope things are okay for you.

Nice to see you back Calorie.

Reece^B 11 Jun 2013 18:39

Great to see you & this fab mod back :)

calorie 11 Jun 2013 20:42

Thanks everyone. :)

@sadiq6210: I'm not sure what it'd all take to get CKEditor 4.1.1 as vB's default editor. One of the first steps would probably be to compare the CKEditor 3.6.2 version in vBulletin to the stock CKEditor 4.1.1 version and see how to include YAHOO.util.stuff and vbulletin.stuff and then try it and see what breaks, find out why, edit in a fix, repeat.

@hsoen: Sorry, the images directory is a relative subdirectory to the main gallery directory.

Thanks again everyone, I hope you enjoy PhotoPlog. :up:

I am glad to see you back.

I'd suggest not messing with the editor until its properly supported in vb4.

How do I go about upgrading from vB3 lite to vB4 pro?

Over 5k uploads that I need to keep. :)

smirkley 13 Jun 2013 03:38

Will this work with 4.2.0 pl3?

(I know you posted 4.2.1, I hafta ask as I wont be upgrading to 4.2.1 anytime soon)

@Reece^B: Back up your gallery database tables and images directory then follow the instructions in the readme file to upgrade from lite to pro. Don't of course overwrite your images directory!! Set the config file, leave the prefix file as blank, and FTP all the stuff over (except the images directory or it'll overwrite your current one) and then import the XML file allowing overwrite. The upgrade will change the database tables but won't mess with the images themselves.

@smirkley: Good question. I don't have that version installed to test. Last version I played with before 4.2.1 was 4.0.0 and that was before the inclusion of the CKEditor. My guess is that it'll install just fine (you might need to edit the XML file and remove the dependency though).
