About
This mod was commissioned by "The Land of Fu" and approved for release at vbulletin.org. The original goals for developing this mod were:
  • To reduce the growing size of vbulletin database;
  • To allow members to posts series of images not limited in size, but kept at images hosting sites like photobucket.com, imageshack.com, tinypic.com, etc...;
  • To allow continuing discussions within those threads displaying slide shows.

Acknowledgement
The basis codes used in this mod originate from SINA’s, an online media company and MVAS provider in the People's Republic of China and the global Chinese communities, and have been modified to suit the needs of "The Land of Fu". The basis templates have been adapted from the vBulletin Album templates.

For those in desperate need of a demo: Outside vBulletin environment, you can find a raw slide show example here, and a sample display of all slide shows here.

Unfortunately, I don't have VBSEO and will not be able to test and provide support in that area.

Looks like it has potential. Is there any way to define the slideshow size?

There is a complicated way. I have adjusted it to display well and fit on most screens.

Well it's not that simple, for example i have a sidebar in my showthread pages, so it just breaks my layout. If you think it's not much trouble to share how it changes its size, please do.

Try increasing the screen resolution of your computer display. I hope you are not using a 640x480 screen resolution (lol). If you still have the sidebar breaking, you can try adjusting the slideshow parameters in the following files:

The file called "epidiascope.js" controls the width and height of the main slideshow display. Open that file and search for:

The style sheet file "style.css" also control the display. Search for:


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

and adjust the value of the width parameter.

Also in style sheet file "style.css", search for:


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

and adjust the width parameter.

The files mentioned above can be found in the upload folder of the mod.

If for some reasons the database new column 'slideshow_bgcolor' required by this mod on the "thread" table has not been automatically created during this mod installation/upgrade, please do add that column manually using the ALTER table command.

Allow overwrite and don't forget to manually alter the table if the new column is not created automatically.
