Picture and Album Gallery for vB4


This is a simple mod written out of frustration with the lack of such a basic feature in vb4 (and vb3, etc....)

Features:
Adds a Gallery drop-down menu to the nav bar OR to the navtab which allows browsing AND searching of all pictures and albums on your site.

The search function searches the album title, album description, picture caption AND username.

Note: If guest permission AdminCP->Usergroups->UserGroup Manager->Unregistered/Not Logged In->Can View Albums is "yes" then they will be able to browse album and picture thumbnails - they may NOT be able to view the full-size pictures. To hide the gallery menu from guest see Settings below.

The gallery and menu is phrased.

Tested with Vbulletin 4.0.2/3 (note: earlier versions have not been tested and are not supported) AND vBadvanced 4 beta1.

Settings:
None are needed - it does what it says on the tin .

AdminCP->Options->User Profile:Album Options "Pictures Per Page" and "Albums Per Page" control the number of thumbnails displayed per page in each gallery type.

If you get images overlapping the borders then you have inconsistent thumbnail sizes - you need to:
AdminCP->Maintenance->Update Counters->Rebuild Attachment Thumbnails

If you want to hide the Gallery menu from guests then edit the Gallery navbar (or navtab) popup menu plugin and change $allowguests = from true to false

Installation
  1. Unzip the download package and copy the contents of the UPLOAD folder into your forum folder.
  2. Go to the VB AdminCP->Plugins & Products click "Manage Products". The click "Add/ImportProduct" at the bottom of the page.
  3. Click "Browse" button and point to the product-gallery-(etc).XML file included in this ZIP package.
  4. Click "Import"
  5. Once the gallery import is complete, click "Add/Import Product" again and select EITHER product_gallery_navtab-xxx.xml OR product_gallery_navbar-xxx.xml depending on where you want the gallery menu to appear (navbar or navtab).
... all done

Updates

To update from an older version you MUST uninstall the product (admincp->manage products: delete Picture and Album Gallery). Then re-install as above.

v1.08
tested on vb4.0.3
v1.07
Fixed navtab menu - picture and album URLS swapped

Converted navtab/bar into products to make installation easier.
v1.06
Due to popular demand added navtab drop down menu (with help from
TimberFloorAu )
Cleaned up code and templates
v1.05
Phrased menu items - upgrade is not required unless you use other languages.

v1.04b
fixed database connection issue

deleted unused template from product xml
v1.03b
Changed permissions to allow guests to view thumbnail galleries

Added phrasing for main gallery code.
Removed navbar template - replaced by plug-in code
Changed album display template from albumbit to album_latestbit (it works better!)
Various template mods to clean up display
v1.02b
Wasn't remembering search query between pages.


This is my first "proper" product so comment/criticism/etc is welcome

Why not post that on the Avenger Blue Theme thread? He has addressed this problem in the past if you will take the time to read them.

It currently doesn't render correctly in the premium mobile style, that's the only issue we have with it at the moment. And there's no change log between 108 & 109

How can I change the order of the Gallery tab? I want it in front of what's new, not after?
Thank you!

I am running VB 4.1.7 with plugin 109 and the album gallery and picture gallery both give me errors not able to display this page when they are chosen. I deleted the php files and got the file not found error so I know they are being referenced correctly. I put them back an no luck. I am using permission 664 and I even tried 777 just to make sure that wasn't a problem. The last three choices on the tab work great but the first two, no luck.

Oh yeah they are useing VBAdvanced cmps 4.0.0 as well

I want to make this more generic.. x amount of albums that any member can add to.

Is that possible?

Cheers

Hi,

Loving this mod, however I have a question with regards to image sizes and filesizes. I have a problem in where I cannot for the life of me work out how to change the setting to enable bigger filesizes. I have attached a screen shot showing what I see when attempting to upload a photo using this gallery mod below:



I like to have the JPG,JPEG filesize changed to 1MB as 29k is no good for showing photo's on a photography forum!

Look in the manual under Attachments>Attachment Manager.

A link would have been better than a picture. Anyway, my first wild guess would be that you have a style issue - the words are there, you just can't see them. Try it in at least 3 different web browsers using an unmodified default style.

Hi,

I have tried editing this and it has had no affect on the filesize limit changing from it's current 29k. Maybe this is only changeable by the coder of this mod?

If you do a "Search this Mod" in the upper right you may see others have had problems with vbadvanced and this mod also. You could try writing them and ask if they solved the issue.
