Description
Turn your vBulletin Album system to an organized Gallery. Watch presentation!

The basic idea of Scandal's vBGallery is to organize vBulletin Albums AND forum attachments (pictures) to a section with lots of functions (categories, search, latest objects, statistics, menus etc).
Designed for vBulletin 4.2.0 (otherwise you must add the navbar links manually).



Features:
- Categories system for Albums (like Forums for threads)
- Five (5) levels of subcategories allowed
- Album, picture and comment search
- Who browsing Gallery (= Gallery Home, Albums, Pictures)
- Gallery statistics
- Forum attachments gallery (with ability to act it as category)
- Pages: latest pictures - latest albums - latest comments (with feature to turn them to "All")
- "My Comments" feature (display all user comments)
- My Pictures/Albums in "this" category
- Ability to set custom statusicons to categories
- Notifications to users with "uncategorized" albums to move them
- Ability to hide empty categories (= with 0 albums)
- Admincp environment
- No annoying copyright info

Language Packs:
- Deutsch (Sie) - Deutsch (Du)


Installation:

1. Upload all files of folder "upload" to your forum root.
2. Import *xml product.
3. (Important) Open template album_edit and find:

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

add below:

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

Done!

Upgrade:

1. FIRST OF ALL: Upload and replace all files of folder "upload" to your forum root.
2. THEN: Import XML product with "Allow Overwrite" to YES.

Who can view vBGallery;
Access to vBGallery has all members who belongs to usergroups with "Can View Albums" to YES.

What if I decide to turn off or uninstall vBGallery;
You are back to Albums without data lose (except the category of each Album - function of this hack).

How could I change the size of Gallery's thumbnails?

vBGallery use the thumbnail size you have set via admincp. To change it go to:
Admincp > Options > Message Attachment Options
... and set your value to "Thumbnail Size"
... afterwards you must rebuild attachment thumbnails at: Maintenance > General Update Tools > Rebuild Attachment Thumbnails

Smile Breadcrumbs?

The breadcrumbs at the top of the page do not display the path to the category currently being looked at. Assume I have categories for Texas and New Mexico, then sub-categories for Landscapes and Architecture in both of them. When I am in the Texas category the breadcrumb trail shows Gallery > Texas, but if I am in the Landscapes sub-category the breadcrumb trail shows Gallery > Landscapes, rather than Gallery > Texas > Landscapes as expected. I also note the header is not included in the breadcrumbs so having multiple headers would also be missed in the breadcrumbs. Can this be fixed?

I must say I really like this mod. Thank you for creating it for us.

And also putting a record in the latest activity stream would be useful.

If this mod would generate a RSS feed for latest images it would be great. Implement this feature, pretty please.

Something is odd.

It is showing the home page side bar, on the gallery page below the grid of albums/pictures.

Anyone know what may cause some pictures to have missing thumbnails?

If I click the link, it'll show the actual picture otherwise but when viewing in gallery, half the pictures are missing their thumbnails.

I'm using filesystem storage

Try to rebuild the thumbnails on admincp > Maintenance > Update counters > Rebuild Attachment Thumbnails

Very nicely done. It appears that there is a problem with the galleryhome template and the sidebar. No big deal. I just disabled the sidebar which displays at the bottom

The attachments gallery is nice, but we have been creating categories/albums in the attachment manager to help managing lots of images. Many of my users have thousands of images in attachment manager. We intend never to restrict that.

I was able to modify Cellariius' Photo Popup to treat the attachment categories as albums but I would really like to be able to manage the attachment categories inside this vB Gallery also.

I like the lightweight system with essentially just a catalog in the gallery and all the assets staying where they are. However I have about 3,000 pictures in more than 25 categories with a lot still uncategorized. It would be nice to have a better tool than attachment manager.

When I installed this on my test site, everything worked just fine. Wehn I moved it to the live site, the Forum Sidebar fell off the screen and went below. I wonder if your gallery template may not be using some critical stylevars?

The other small concern I have is a very long load time and overhead for the first load ot the gallery home.

I believe we are going to really love this mod and I will be happy to do whatever I can to help with improvements.

I copied the FORUMHOME template from my master style to GALLERYHOME for everything down to the body tag (except for the title). That fixed the problem with the sidebar. It now works just fine.

I have not tried to figure out exactly where the culprit was. I tried several smaller edits first without success.

Our users are interested in having pdf files in the gallery. I edited the uploads and added pdf to all the image type lists and that seemed to work just fine.

I wonder if the image type list could be an option in AdminCP Settings? That would be better than editing the code.

When I import the the .xml file using FileZilla it says No file uploaded and no local file found. I should import the cpnav_sc_gallery.xml right?
