PhotoPlog: The Pro Gallery - Version 2.1.6 for vBulletin 4.2.1

This is a full-fledged and completely integrated image gallery add-on for vBulletin. No template edits are necessary. This is the same version that was licensed for sale back in the vBulletin 3 days, but it has been upgraded to vBulletin 4.2.1 and is being offered without charge and is not feature-limited. You get the full pro version.

It comes with various thumb, image, and display settings, has the ability to determine and display EXIF information, is integrated with several packages including Highslide, and you can set a number of usergroup and category permissions, moderate comments and files, add custom fields, FTP import, mass move, and more.


Integrated packages (all are the most recent packages available as of 09 June 2013):
  • Highslide JS 4.1.13
  • JHead 2.97
  • CKEditor 4.1.1
  • jQuery 1.10.1

PhotoPlog Pro 2.1.6 has been developed for the following version of vBulletin:
  • vBulletin 4.2.1 (fresh install)

PhotoPlog Pro 2.1.6 has been tested on the following browsers:
  • Firefox 21.0
  • Internet Explorer 10.0.5

Check out the screenshots.


How to upgrade from PhotoPlog Pro v.2.1.5 to PhotoPlog Pro v.2.1.6?

You can follow the readme file, but this is a small change to fix a bug I inadvertently introduced
(sorry!!) when I moved the code around. All you need to do is one minute of work as follows:
  • FTP these three files from the PhotoPlog ZIP:

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

  • Reimport the following XML file via the vB ACP:

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

    Do NOT uninstall !!!
    Do allow overwrite.

How to upgrade from any other version of PhotoPlog to PhotoPlog Pro v.2.1.6?
  • Backup first and then follow the upgrade instructions in the readme file.

Additional questions...
Will there be a PhotoPlog version for vBulletin 5? Probably not. My understanding is that vBulletin 5 already includes a gallery.
So what happened to you anyway? Personal issues. My sincerest apologies to anyone negatively affected by my absence.
What about GARS, GAB, GAZ, GAL, and GeekMart? I'm not sure if I'll update these, and probably not anytime soon.

@puertoblack2003: PhotoPlog v.2.1.5 and up should be PHP 5.4 ready unless I missed an ereg() or spilt() type function somewhere, but I don't think I did. That error is saying it can't find the photoplog_prefix.php file. Do you have the photoplog_prefix.php file on your server inside the forumsvb/includes directory?

Great! One big reason I hated to upgrade from vb 3.8 to 4.x is because we lost Photoplog. We had thousands of photos that we couldn't use. Looking forward to getting this part of our site back!

has anyone used photopost vbgallery and this? I'm curious which one you liked better and why. vbgallery isn't supported anymore and hasn't had an update in years now. Although I see this probably won't be updated either.

@skol: Was it your first new category? A sub-category? The first category after adding a divider bar? I haven't yet been able to replicate it, but I believe it is there though it only seems to happen in certain circumstances. If you can provide any further clue, I'd appreciate it.
Sorry for the late reply,I myself am unable to replicate it again..Basically I believe I deleted the default categories and created a new one leaving all settings as default and then imported multiple images via ftp..

Sorry I cant be of more assistance, but I will report back should it occur again..

tpearl5, yes, vbgallery no longer supported & again it does not work on the new version vb4.2.1. But is not known to be supported photoplog long time.
Vbgallery & photoplog functionally almost identical.
Replaced without loss does not happen, the various links.
I would not recommend replace it to photoplog

@tpearl5: If you already use vBGallery, then you probably want to stick with it unless your gallery is small where it doesn't matter if you start new. There is no import/export script between the galleries so starting PhotoPlog means losing vBGallery content (if you uninstall it). To avoid that, you could run vBGallery and install PhotoPlog but block uploads to vBGallery so you'd only be using it to feed any images already out there. As for updating PhotoPlog to vB5, there are currently no plans to do this, as vBulletin 5 already seems to have a gallery, but who knows what vB's gallery is going to look like. Also, vBulletin 5 isn't ready for the bigger mods (as evidenced by the number of vB5 mod releases to date). It's hard to say what will happen in the future. However, right now PhotoPlog has many of the features of any of the popular galleries out there even though you may read it referenced to as a "vB hack" or something similar by at least one commercial competitor. With PhotoPlog you can set permissions based on usergroup, add a watermark to images, create custom fields, upload as a different user, among other things.

@skol: I couldn't reproduce this either, but if you or anyone else experiences it, please let me know. Thanks!!

@ikopylov: Yes, you are correct, PhotoPlog wasn't upgraded to vB 4.2.1 until just recently, and for that I'm sorry. You are also correct that vBGallery and PhotoPlog are similar. Both cannot work without vBulletin, and both also have similar features though there is no import/export script so links between the two would be broken (without htaccess redirects or running both as mentioned above). You could also use PhotoPlog's FTP import to get any images into PhotoPlog quickly, though this of course won't redirect links on its own. Other than that, I don't know much about vBGallery especially after the PhotoPost/vBAdvanced lawsuit/whatever thing happened, sorry.

Still receiving the same error, plus blank vbadvanced page, plus I receive a permissions error when accessing the categories on the front end. I have modified the usergroups, but still nothing.

In the upload file menu, there is a duplication of Title and Description. That is, both the Title box and the Description box appear twice.

How to resolve this problem?

@GaryT and Light Peak: PhotoPlog is phrased so just search via the ACP -> PhotoPlog -> Change Phrases -> Search in Phrases -> Search for Text -> Find -> Edit -> Save.

@angeljs: The vBA page is blank because one of the constants atop PhotoPlog's vbadvanced.php file is not defined (they all used to be defined but are no longer) so you get a blank page as PhotoPlog exits. It is a very easy fix once I know what constants are defined (and you want at least one of them there for security reasons). To let me know what constants are defined, edit PhotoPlog's vbadvanced.php file and replace it with the below, save and FTP it, go to your portal page and please let me know what you see on screen:

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


@hsoen: PhotoPlog is not likely to slow your server down anymore than adding or installing any other program. PhotoPlog is coded using table keys and uses slave server queries on nonessential queries (for example, an "essential" query is one used in say uploading an image, and a "nonessential" query is one used to say display information). To disable gallery and comment counts in the forum postbit, go to the ACP -> Products & Plugins -> Plugin Manager -> Edit "PhotoPlog Postbit Gallery Counts" -> set "Plugin is Active" to No -> Save. For the duplication of Title and Description, do you remember what you did right before that occurred? The solution is here. There are double entries in the photoplog_customfields database table for that category and one set needs to be removed. I'm not able to reproduce this though, so anything you can tell me about how it happened to you might help. Thanks!!

@calorie: Based on the attached picture, which double entries in the photoplog_customfields database table need to be removed?

The double entries appeared when you upload file to any categories.
