Major Features

Multiple Instances You can run an unlimited number instances of the gallery on the same forum with same set of files! Each instance can have a different look and feel to it, and with enough work can have a completely different function because of the system we built it on.

AJAX integration We used AJAX wherever we could to help reduce the page reloads

Automatic resizing and thumbnail creation As long as your server can handle it, the users can upload whatever size pictures they want. The gallery will control the size displayed and stored, and will even create a thumbnail, all automatically. Users no longer have to worry about resizing their images to fit what your forum specifies. If you do not have a server with the power to resize images (GD image library can get pretty memory intensive) then you can set the gallery to reject images that do not fit into your size criteria.

User Albums Users can create their own image albums to organize and display sets of their images. Albums can also be set to hidden and/or password protected. So users who want to have images for only certain friends or not visible to anyone else at all can easily organize them.

    • Public or Hidden - Images in a hidden album will not be visible to users other then that owner

Thanks for the response. I didn't want to retain all images, but did want to keep any that had been used inside a thread. This way we would not have that 'missing image' notification or the dreaded red "x".

I was hoping there was a way that when a member deleted an image in the gallery that was being used inside a thread or post, that that image would remain - or perhaps not be deletable in the gallery once it is used in the thread. Just an idea that I think would be useful.

Thanks for your work on this regardless.

I just tried it and the link works for me?

I completely understand. The red X is ugly
The main problem I see is when a user goes to delete an image, I have to check if the full image or thumb is used in a post, which means doing a scan on a field in the post table that isn't indexed, which can be very bad on a forum with a lot of posts.

I understand. This made me think of two other possibilities:

1. Is there a way to make an image that is stored in the gallery and that is put in a post - use the attachment feature from the forum software? (I'm not really sure I'm explaining that correctly.) I mean, is there some way to cause the image to be stored as an attachment - if it is put into a post - and from the gallery? I currently have my forum set up so that members cannot delete attachments. After 48 hours, they can no longer edit a post either. If the inserted image code somehow triggered the attachment manager for VB, then the image would be safe even if the user deleted the image in their personal gallery. (I'm just dreaming here as I do not know how that system works and it may be the same issue as you described before.)

2. Alternatively, I wonder if after 'X' number of days of being posted into an album, if all images in that album can become non-deletable? I suppose that would do the trick, but not really what one looks for in a gallery setup I guess. haha.. I'm just trying to find away to offer a gallery to the members that will not result in broken threads/posts down the line.

Thanks for your time, Dylan.

Further more, the comment (reply) box is really messed up.

(Check the bottom).. I've zoomed out to fit the image, but in reality the top bar goes through the smilies.
I had the same mistake with you but when I set size for thumbnail and photo size, it's ok now
FOr the comment box, change to Vb Style it will be fix with your board.

I got the message <p>Database error</p> when I added subscribe other users.

I don't know why I can't rate in my site, it showed
"We are sorry but you do not have permissions to view the gallery. Please speak with the administrator if you feel this is an error"
when I clicked rate images

Hi Dylan

Is there a way I can make you copyright at the footer, to read all in white?

Any possible way that there can be an option to "increase the image to full size" on the screen?

More issues by the way, see images. First image, information within the picture itself, can this be changed? I can't even read it. Second image, right side, it goes outside the box. Internet explorer also has quite a few issues with the image display. Third image? I think you can make the guess.

Also, vB style fixed the issue for me and changing the max weight/height sizes from 0 to a another fixed the "no image" issue.

You must have to change the size of your photo thumbnail in instance gallery to under 150 pixel as Dylan recommended.

I don't know if either way would be desirable really. First one you are doubling up on space used, which can get quite large. Second one, the users will eventually figure out the time limit, post an image and delete it sooner then they would to keep it from being stuck on their gallery.
I just thought of another idea I'll think about trying. I can add an option in the acp so you can set any images to go to a moderator group on delete. Then the moderators can check if the image is associated with anything before either physically deleting it or leaving it as non visible in the gallery but still available for links.

What size do you have set for thumbnail and full images? Also what screen resolution are you at?
It's supposed to adjust for different image sizes, I'll check and see what's off.

I'm using 1280x1024 Resolution. Image sizes, 1280x1024 max, I've re-changed the thumb file sizes to 277 x 156, which seems to fix a "few" issues. but messes up the "My Most Recent Images" in my profile page. as seen on the third image I shown you in my last post.

Still.. A "Show fullscreen image" when clicking the image or a button would be great.
