Picasaweb Album Slideshow - bbcode

I assume this will work on previous versions of vbulletin as well.

I run an Outdoor Community and a lot of my members are using Picasaweb to store their photos. Rather than having them show a few photos and then link to the album for "the rest of the photos", I really needed a way to bring a slideshow into the post.

I would love to find a way to just copy and paste the entire album url between some tags, but after searching up and down the internet (even in all of the corners) I could not find an exact method of doing that. If anybody knows a solution that would make my mod obsolete, I'd love to have it.

So this method will require the user to enter their picasaweb user id in the Options box, and then the album id/name in between the tags.

This is my first mod posted, I hope my instructions are complete.

As for support? Hmmm... since I'm such a noob, I'm gonna say NO, because I'm not that much of a problem solver yet. Hopefully the community will chime in on questions and problems.

Thanks.

Sorry to hear that. Are you seeing this in the post, or in your BBcode manager screen? Are you using my same example code?

Thanks for this. It works great.

I wonder if there's a switch to turn auto-start off on the slide shows. If the slide show is several posts deep in a thread a person reading the posts might not even see it till it is half over.

Google inserts the following code if you turn the autoplay off:

&noautoplay=1

but I'm trying to figure out how to place that in the BB code.

The full example of an embedded Picasa slideshow is:


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

And with autoplay turned off, it's:


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

I tried a few things, but I broke the slideshow. I'll keep messing around with it and will hopefully get back to you. Fortunately at this time, the users can use the navigation arrows to go back and forth in the slideshow if they've gotten lost.

The issue is fixed. thanks. It was actually caused by a non related modification that affected google code.
