THE IMAGE RESIZER for vBulletin 3.7 v1.2.8
Powered with:
Lytebox / Highslide / Lightview / Slimbox / Thickbox
Floatbox / Shadowbox / Greybox / Roebox / AwesomeBox

based on nCode Image Resizer for vb3.6.x

What does it do
This plugin enables you to automatically resize every user-posted external
image, posted in threads, vb's blogs or even vb's albums (and group's pictures),
and in signatures (optional), which is larger than given dimensions.
Also, give (optional in admincp) options to the users, to set their own preferences
for resizing.

The Image Resizer acts in:
- External images embed in posts.
- Attachs images embed in posts.
- External images embed in blogs.
- Images in Albums / Group's pictures (optional).
- Signatures (optional) with a different width/height setting.

And the resize methods are:
- No resizing
- Enlargement in the same document
- Enlargement in the same window (replacing the forum thread document)
- Enlargement in a new window
- Enlargement using Lytebox
- Enlargement using Highslide
- Enlargement using Lightview
- Enlargement using Slimbox
- Enlargement using Thickbox
- Enlargement using Floatbox
- Enlargement using Shadowbox
- Enlargement using Greybox
- Enlargement using Roebox
- Enlargement using AwesomeBox

It also adds an information bar when not using Lytebox/Highslide/etc (which is not
displayed when the image is too small) giving information about the original
dimensions and filesize.
Filesize is only supported on Internet Explorer, other browsers don't reveal
this information through javascript.

See the AdminCP Screenshot below.

Installation / Upgrade
1. Upload the contents of the "clientscript" folder to your vBulletin's clientscript folder.
You will have:

2. Import "product-tcattd_extimageresizer.xml" in your vBulletin forum. Enter your AdminCP
and go to Plugins & Products -> Manage Products. Click on [Add/Import Product] and
refer to the XML file.
Allow Overwrite -> Yes.

3. You're done.

* Upgrading.
If you're using old (but great!) nCode Image Resizer for vb3.6.x or Jase2 port
for vb3.7 (the reason for keep this update; is a great mod, even Jase2 port is cool)
then you need to uninstall your old version first from your vBulletin's
Product Manager.
Then, perform an installation from the beginning... and configure it
in your AdminCP

Version history (changelog)
v1.2.8 (August 27th, 2008)
- Updated. Highslide from 3.3.22 to 4.0.4
- Added. Option to downsize attached images with no thumbnail.
- Fixed. A problem with highslide image path in forums with vb's files
in the server root. Before some installs take the paths well, some not.
Changed the way it load the CSS into the highslide template (just path vars)
to fix that, using vboptions->bburl for full path.

To upgrade you need to:
- upload (and overwrite) the folder /clientscript/highslide/
Then, re-import the new 1.2.8 product (allow overwrite = yes).

v1.2.7 (August 26th, 2008)
- Added. Option to exclude certain styles from apply all the image-resizer thing.
That way you can exclude you "mobile" style (mobile style hack @
and not overload that with all the javascripts from lightboxes.
Down side: images in those excluded styles will not be resized.
- Added. CSS Class for resized images. You can easily customize your needs for HOW
to display a downsized image, borders, spacers, and many others only using
the defined CSS Class.
CSS class for img tags are:
tcattdimgresizer ->normal IMG tag
tcattdimglink -> IMGLINK tag
- Fixed. Proper fieldset in UserCP options for Image Resizer. Now really fixed (i hope).
- Fixed. Using "resize in same window" for signatures not downsize well the image
after user click to go back from full size to small size.
- Fixed. Not a fix really, but implemented the downsize of image attachments in vbadvanced
news module. I'm not using vbadv anymore, that's why i don't "see" that before.
- Fixed/Added. Fix the Not Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
Added an option to choose a new javascript metod to resize images, that's
100% valid. Is optional, so you can keep the old and nice Ncode mode,
or change it to the new one.

To upgrade you need to:
- upload (and overwrite) the file /clientscript/ncode_imageresizer.js
- upload the new file /clientscript/tcattd_imageresizer.js
Then, re-import the new 1.2.7 product (allow overwrite = yes).
Check (and re-save) your AdminCP options.

1.2.6 (July 28th, 2008)
- Added. New autocreated on install BBcode: [IMGLINK]
This BBcode will "solve" the know issue number one, about embed images with a link
[URL] tag arround them to use as button for links.
For more details, refer to the AdminCP option and associated Help on that item.
- Added. Optional resizing of the new BBcode [IMGLINK]. If yes, images posted with
the new BBcode will be downsized, but no lightbox will be attached to them, so
links with [URL] still works and don't mess up your layout too.
- Added. A new option in AdminCP to "allow only change dimensions" in users profiles options.
So, now you have: allow all options, allow resize mode selecion, allow resize mode
selection and change dimensions, allow only change dimensions.
For more details, refer to the AdminCP option and associated Help on that item.
- Fixed. LightWindow was integrated in v1.2.5, but the option-item in the admincp was
missing. LOL
Working now.
- Fixed. Highslide image paths (css don't work properly and can't display loader and fullexpand images)
- Fixed. The layout of the UserCP -> Profile Options for The Image Resizer (now a proper "fieldset" is set)
- Updated. Highslide to v3.3.22
- Updated. Slimbox to v1.64

To upgrade you need to:
- upload (and overwrite) the new folder /clientscript/highslide/
- upload (and overwrite) the new folder /clientscript/slimbox/
- upload (if missing) the folder /clientscript/lightwindow/
Then, re-import the new 1.2.6 product (allow overwrite = yes).

1.2.5 (July 22th, 2008)
- Added. New resizers: Floatbox, Shadowbox, Greybox, Roebox, LightWindow, AwesomeBox.
- Added. New options to set different width and height for Signature's image
resizing and Album's image resizing. Check the AdminCP options for configuration.
- Added. New option to exclude usergroups (by IDs) from Signature resizing.
- Added. An option to disable the Resizing of pictures in vb's albums / group's pictures.
Some people don't like and don't use that.
- Clean. Cleaned up "the function" for search/replace.
- Fixed. Removed the ugly border from the images in Albums and Group's Pictures
(forgot to put a border="0" in the img tag for the Lightbox's link).

To upgrade you need to upload all the new /clientscript/ files
and folders again. Overwrite the javascripts! (yes, overwrite the ncode_imageresizer.js).
Then, import the new 1.2.5 product (allow overwrite = yes).

And: check the readme! (Known issues)

1.2.4 (July 18th, 2008)
- Added. New resizers: Lightview, Slimbox, Thickbox.

To upgrade, you need to upload all the new /clientscript/ files
and folders!. Then, import the new 1.2.4 product (allow overwrite = yes).

1.2.3 (June 7th, 2008)
- Added. Option "Replace Lightbox for Attached files?" in the AdminCP.
When you turn that on, all default vb's Lightbox will be replaced
with Lytebox/Highslide, only if you are using one of those two
options as your "Default Resize Mode". Now, your attached images
will be open with Lytebox/Highslide.
Old references to Lightbox javascript are hidden (Set $show['lightbox']
to false).

To upgrade, just import the new 1.2.3 product (allow overwrite = yes).
No need to re-upload the files.

1.2.2 (June 7th, 2008)
- Fixed, set "Clear User Settings" to yes in AdminCP, not clear data.
Thanks to Stoebi!
- Fixed, images from Albums added to Groups don't get resized (they use
a different template from pictures displayed in Albums)
Thanks Calash for pointing the bug.

To upgrade, just import the new 1.2.2 product (allow overwrite = yes). No need to re-upload the files.

1.2.1 (June 7th, 2008)
- Change. Moved the conditional in template:
ncode_imageresizer_headinclude order to show less CSS when using Lytebox or Highslide.
Just one new CSS definition will be added (when using Lytebox/Highslide)
If you customized this template, revert it to reflect the changes.
To upgrade, just import the new 1.2.1 product (allow overwrite = yes). No need to re-upload the files.

1.2.0 (June 6th, 2008)
- TCattitude take Spleasure's work with his permission, and continue from
vbulletin 3.6.x mod, porting it to vbulletin 3.7.x
- Add options to use Lytebox or Highslide to show full image.
- Add options to customize the Warn-Bar color, text color and border.
- fixed resizing images posted in vb's blogs.
- fixed resizing images posted in vb's albums. Now you can set a more larger width
in usergroup permissions, and allow "External Image Resizer" to resize down more
to not mess up your layout.
- fixed to not show Warn-Bar when you use Lytebox or Highslide. Instead: Mouse-over

Before (Spleasure's Work)... see the readme.

Live Demo.
In vB's Blog.
In vB's Album.

More Details
See the included readme.txt for more details, configuration, changelog (from nCode vb3.6.x) and other things (copyrights and license info for Highslide / Lytebox / etc).

Thanks to Spleasure for the permission to use his javascript and work.
I made another mod, more minimalistic, for resize external posted images
in several vbulletin website that i manage. But my javascript skills are
nor really the best, so i was using some other JS functions that i found
online. But nothing like nCode's one.

So he gave me permission to use his JS, and to use the first fork I did
from nCode's plugin-product for vbulletin 3.6.x. So i drop my own
minimalistic version of the image-resize plugin-product, polished the fork (put options and more friendly for admins), and make a
"second version" of nCode's one.

And this is it: nCode Image Resizer -> The Image Resizer.
Now powered with Lytebox, Highslide and many more! (optional)

Will be given by me... and all the nice and beautiful community here at that is using this mod and be kind enough to help each other.
I have a work, a family and a small Cat that takes a lot of milk, so don't spec an immediate response for every problem. Bugs will be solved. Suggestions could be taken or not.
And obviously: don't ask or request things if you don't mark this mod as installed

I am interested in this hack. Although I would like to use it for a different purpose. My question is, whether the following process could be done with this hack:

I do not want my users to upload external images at all. I want them to upload them only directly on my server.

I want to use this script, set the maximum dimensions to "zero" and as soon as they try to show an external image show an alert that external images are not allowed and that they should please use the normal way of uploading directly on the server. Or a link to a thread with explanations within the forum how to upload on the server.

Would this be possible with this script and if yes, how can I do this?

(vb 3.7.3 pl1)

Thanks in advance

Hi, I have just installed this and nothing has happened to the images as far as resizing is concerned. I have read most of the comments here and no one seems to reply to the other people who have this problem... other than to say "have you made sure it's on"... well yes I have... I even tried putting in a small 300x200 max size and still nothing happens. I noticed that some posts say use the default theme, but I am already using the default theme.

What is missing from the instructions to get this working please? The instructions say upload clientscript, (done) import xml (done and confirmed as installed) and then it says you're done...
I have been through the options for the image resizer in admin cp and apart from setting the first option to yes, there doesn't seem to be anything further to do.

I'm not usually one to complain, but Lytebox isn't working at all (just opens a new page) with some key parts of vBSEO enabled, and not having a quick way to see that an image has been resized isn't the greatest.

I've kept it installed and plan to switch everything back to using the old ncode method, just disappointed none of the new features really work at all for our site.

An Open Letter to TCattitude

With vB3.8.0 RC1 finally released will you be working on a vB3.8.x compatible version of Image Resizer? I hate to be a stick-in-the-mud here, but, we haven't heard from you here since 01 Sep 2008. What's the deal? Where's your support for this mod?

This entire mod, or aspects of it at least, and, definitely, HighSlide does NOT work (at least not for me) in any of the vB3.8.0 Betas or RC1, so far. Using Ncode mode or TCattd mode has no improving effect.

Whatever they did to the vB LightBox when they added left (previous) - right (next) buttons that wrap now screws up HighSlide. Thumbnailed Attachments now open directly into a separate browser viewing window (does not bring up the image by itself in it's own floating window). IMG links will still display in HighSlide. Also, HighSlide does not now "recognize" thumbnailed attachments if you use the left - right buttons in HighSlide. BUMMER!

Until this mod's HighSlide is tweaked to work with vB3.8x I will not be upgrading to vB3.8x. This mod is that important to our forum. Fix it, please, TCattitude.

Regards, Dennis "theOZer" Osborne

P.S. In vB3.8 the Image Resizer using HighSlide DOES work properly when viewing attachments in the Blog posts and when looking at user's pictures in Albums.

I just think at the very least disclaimers should be included about when this won't work with other major vB products. Having to find that out after the fact isn't the most fun. Right now I'm not sure if we should be waiting on a fix or if vBSEO with nofollow enabled (important for us) just won't ever work with this period.

If what the poster above says is correct, this mod needs to be marked as unsupported.

99% are working. You have to find it out by yourself. This is the way it is - not only at this Mod.

It is impossible to watch every other Product for changes.

'and the most others'? Oh really.

I think this is an amazing image resizer, and by far my favorite, but I had to remove it as *anyone* browsing the site using Internet Explorer 6+ would receive a critical error when trying to quote, multi-quote, reply or send a PM.
