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

Is there any way to set the size of the image when you're paging through a gallery? Many of my images are larger than will fit even in a full-screen window. I would like to set this to 'fit window', and make it 1:1 scale only when you click into the image from here. Any way to do thsi?

There seems to be a problem with privacy settings. When albums are set as private (only visible for contacts and friends), they are still listed by this module, but can't be opened ..

Navtab Question

I might just be a victim of a template issue but it appears as though hovering over the Gallery selection highlights just fine however, once clicked, the navtab is no longer highlighted.

Is there an onClick missing somewhere that would keep the focus on the Gallery navtab once a user selects a choice from the Gallery dropdown menu?

Thanks

This is a major problem and should be reported as a bug. Private albums should only appear as thumbnails to contacts and friends...not to everyone.

OP can you please address this bug?

can you make the background color of private albums and pictures a different color so users know which friends albums and photos are set to private ?

What in the world are you talking about? How do you get from a forum picture gallery to ... what? You mean DVD inserts?

Anyone know how to keep the Gallery selection highlighted when used as a Tab? Anyone?

Bueller?

I have the same issue and it also appears that using the navBar causes an incorrect element to be highlighted..

Seems petty to worry about it but it doesn't look right to me

Everything is good but, there is a little problem, after i click on the pictures, the mod is not resizing the pictures, pictures are getting over sized , it would be better if you set a image size to display the pictures when you click on them.
Thanks by the way
