vbGallery Addon: Photo of the Day
Mod Version: 1.00, by 0ptima (Member) 0ptima is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.2 Rating: (2 votes - 4.00 average) Installs: 32
Released: 08 Apr 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 166
Not Supported Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations  

This script will randomly select a photo from vbGallery and create a new thread in a specific forum with the photo and it's description. The script is run as a scheduled task in Vbulletin's Scheduled Tasks Manager.

Before uploading the script, you need to set which categories you want the photos to be selected from, the minimum width of the photo and the minimum amount of views that the photo has received.

Installation is easy, simply upload this script to the forums/includes/cron/ directory and create a new scheduled task. (See screen shot for suggested scheduled task parameters)

Confirmed to work with Vbulletin 3.6.4 and vbGallery 2.2
Confirmed to work with Vbulletin 3.6.8 and vbGallery 2.3
Confirmed to work with Vbulletin 3.7.0 and vbGallery 2.4.3
Confirmed to work with Vbulletin 3.8.2 and vbGallery 2.4.3
Confirmed to work with Vbulletin 3.8.3 and vbGallery 2.5
Confirmed to work with Vbulletin 3.8.4 and vbGallery 2.5


This is the exact same script that I released for VB 3.6. So if you already have this script working with an older version of VB, there is no need to update it.

Please click install if you use this script.

Hi! I have this installed and think it's great Is it possible to have the date for the day the thread posted inserted into the title of the thread (i.e.. Layout of the Day - 17 July - PhotoName), and also a text link back to the gallery image in the post? If so how would I add those lol

After using it for a couple weeks the only complaint I have is that it seems to select the same photo time and time again, it would be nice if there was a feature to not allow the same photo to show up twice within a user defined time limit...say a month or a year...

Play around with the variables $vbtitle and $vbgtitle. For the date, look here

For a link back to the gallery, I think you had to enable html in your posts, which is not recommended.

You need to be less restrictive on your selection to avoid getting duplicates so quickly.

Hi, I am having this same problem...and there's only one category I have excluded...can a function be added to check if an image has been posted, say within the last month (or a user defined period) and exclude any duplicates?

And I just saw the previous reply to me...I will play around with that, thanx!

Christon, I got your email about this. I am busy now, but will take a look to see how much work would be involved to prevent duplicate image selection.
