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

nice mod. works great! Thank you for this.
I have added it successfully and it shows in my menu bar not tab but it only shows on the forum page in VB publisher suite. How can I make it display on the CMS home page and blog pages navigation too?
Thanks.

Nice mod, really like it! Good job.

However I have a question. I find this "issue" a bit annoying.

When our users upload pictures into their albums our moderators need to moderate them.
If the user recently created the album and uploaded for example 10 pictures in it it doesnt get a "cover" automaticly. This results in that the album doesnt show in "albumall" or "latest album".

Anyone have an idea what I can do?

Installation under vB 4.1. PL2 no prob, looks like it's working very well.

I installed it into the navbar, however I cannot edit the navbar template to move the menu "Gallery" to another position, it's not in this template. Any advice how to put that to another position, let's say right behind Calendar and before Community?

Thanks a lot!

I have this same issue. There are some albums that do not get an album cover assigned automatically. Not sure the reason, it just says "PICTURE" with no image.

Otherwise, awesome mod! MOTM!

Album cover pics are created by the vB base code - not by this mod (the mod just shows whatever cover pic was allocated to the album). I would suggest you report the issue to Vbulletin as a bug if you can reliably replicate it?
