Photo Gallery?

Hello, new here and just learning what vBulletin can do (alone and with hacks). My understanding is that there was a hack here similar to PhotoPost? I don't see it anywhere. Can someone kindly direct me? Thank you.

PhotoPost has users using 3.5 and sharing the minor changes necessary to integrate with the changes from 3.0.

Thanks, everyone. I suppose I'll have to use PhotoPost then.

I used Photopost for more then a year but now I am switching over to vbGallery cause this one has 2 clear advantages for me.

1. Its using the vb phrase system so that I can show it to my users in different languages. pp can only have one in the actual version

2. Its using the vb rights management system.
No need to import/export usergroups etc. I hated this while working with pp.

Regards
jluerken

btw. does someone need a pp license?

I'm using menalto gallery, there is a hack or file edit here I believe or vbulletin.com which allows you to integrate them somewhat nicely and they are free. I was searching for that when I found this thread The hack involves adding a gallery.php file which is the one file that connects gallery with vb.

The reason I am NOT going to use vBadvanced Gallery is that it does not have a bulk upload feature that is easy for members to use. My members aren't savvy enough to use FTP. With Photopost your members can use .zip uploads, and with Menalto Gallery there is even a drop and drop interface that your members can download.

I asked for my money back from vBadvanced Gallery since I am not going to use the software that I purchased. They denied me. Beware!

JTMON, where can I find the integration file for Menalto?

Menalto galler does support a number of upload options, you can ftp if you want, do it through the browser, launch a java app to choose multiple files, or you can just choose your pics in XP, then choose publish to website from the left side menu in XP..There is also gallery remote which is a stand alone app for uploading pics into your gallery. The problem is that some of these options don't quite work 100% when you embed it into your VB...the normal browser and XP ways work and those are probably the easiest for end users.

I am using Photopost atm but I will change to vBGallery next weekend.
Why?

Well I like the idea that its using the vB rights management and the phrases system cause I am using a multilingual board.

The main feature of VBGallery is the integration into vBulletin. Menalto and Photpost are stand alone galleries with integration options.

Next is that you can't blame the authors that your users are to stupid to use FTP
I fully understand that they don't give you your money back cause the software is working. Don't compare the limit of the users with the limit of a software

vBGallery is not expensive and a good software I think ant btw. I am a normal customer and not working here

If FTP is not easy to use for your members, why don't you write an easy to understand tutorial?

In case of pp there is very good support and the guys are really friendly.
Also vBGallery has good support. I've no experience with menalto.

All-knowing jluerken,

I didn't say that my users were too stupid to use FTP, I said they were not savvy enough - as in tech savvy. In any event I, myself (who knows the internet like the back of my hand), would rather use a java applet with simple drag-and-drop than multi-step FTP.

yea that was totally rude.

95% of my users don't know how to use FTP - they can hardly format BBCode. Are they stupid? No, because they don't care.

Most of them are writers and artists. We have a few stock brokers and many of doctors and psychologists. These people are so ++++ing smart, they don't need to learn anything more than basic internet skills. But yet, they need to learn FTP because they spare a few hours after work to come to my site for what... to interact?

They could give a ++++ less about bits & bytes, Fark, torrents, graphic design, mark up, burning their own DVDS, the latest "pwnd" picture, their upstream/downstream, FTP, GD2, Trillian Pro, SEO, Adobe acquiring Macromedia, proxys, serverside includes, 3WC, cascade style sheets, CMS, Cpanel, DNS, Apache, Star Trek and living inside their mother ++++ing box.


Now look at your memberbase and tell me how many registered users you have.

The main feature of VBGallery is the integration into vBulletin. Menalto and Photpost are stand alone galleries with integration options.
Technically, vBG and PhotoPost interate with vBulletin the same way although at different levels. Although unlike vBG, PhotoPost can be a stand alone gallery or integrated the same way with many different forums.

PhotoPost can integrate with vBulletin in many different ways that other galleries cannot: PhotoPost can run in a seperate database and even on a seperate server, PhotoPost can continue to function even when vBulletin is closed, PhotoPost user interface uses all the elements of vBulletin that any other gallery offers and PhotoPost can move with you when you convert forums (should you decide to).

PhotoPost continues to set the bar higher by offering innovative features that are not offered anywhere else. The number of options and configurability is unmatched by either of those galleries mentioned above. Indeed, one author was even caught "borrowing" our code/designs during their development.

I am simply looking for ease of use (and an uncluttered web page) like the commercial photo sites offer. As far as I know, Photopost does not offer drag-and-drop functionality like Menalto does.
