vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 7
Released: 19 Aug 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 11
Supported Re-usable Code Translations External Content  

Jigzone.com is a free website where you can upload photos and make jigsaw puzzles out of them. These puzzles can then be embedded into your forum using this BB Code, like you would a YouTube video.

Jigzone offers many options in terms of how to embed the puzzle and in how many pieces (and what shaped pieces) your photo should be broken into. For simplicity's sake I have hard coded this BB Code as a traditional 20 piece jigsaw. I will explain what needs to be changed for other options.

After being embedded users will have options to change the shape and number of pieces from the options that will appear to the left of the puzzle.

Live Demo: Here

Add a New BB Code

Title: Jigzone Puzzle
BB Code Tag Name: puzzle
Replacement:

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

Example:[puzzle]5F14EE77238[[/puzzle]
Description: Embedded Puzzles powered by www.jigzone.com.
Use Option: No
Button Image: (optional)
Remove Tag If Empty: Yes
All Disable Options: Yes

------
This code makes a 20 piece classic shaped jigsaw puzzle. The part of code that decides this is the part: &z=6

6 = 20 piece classic jigsaw
0 = 48 piece classic jigsaw
5 = 6 piece classic (too easy!)
18 = 41 pieces "Tetris" Blocks
30 = 154 piece classic (Hard!)
34 = 240 piece squares (Weird!)
33 = 247 piece triangles (Crazy!)

For a complete list make a puzzle at Jigzone and play with the options, look at the embed code to see how the number after "z=" changes to see what number corresponds to your preferred puzzle.
------

To make one you need to sign up for an account at www.jigzone.com and upload a photo or image. You will then be given link and embed codes. Go to the first link code it will look something like:

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

The number you need is from the line: http://www.jigzone.com/puzzles/5F14EE77238?z=0&m=AE250BFF3C.930EFB0">
All you need is the puzzle code, in this case: 5F14EE77238

You put the "Puzzle Code" in between the "puzzle" tags:
[puzzle]5F14EE77238[/puzzle]

As the embed code uses JavaScript you may need to reload the page after submitting to see the puzzle, and of course you must have JavaScript enabled. If you don't have JS enabled you'll get a link to the puzzle instead.

I have hard coded the initial options as a 20 piece classic jigsaw but before you start the puzzle you can use the options on the left to change the shape and number of pieces to your liking.

-----

Notice: The 'puzzle code' must be entered exactly as it is from the link code provided, including the fact it MUST be in UPPERCASE- CE14EEB7547 for example...
If you have "Prevent Shouting" enabled you will have to disable it-
VBulletin Options -> Message Posting and Editing Options -> Prevent Shouting

Please mark as installed if you use this.

Check My Profile for other BB Code enhancements. They work on all versions.

Thanks for doing this

For some reason, I can't get this to work in a 'normal' forum, but when I move it to my Moderator forum, it works.

I have my javascript set correctly at the site level. Is there a particular forum-level setting that I have to change?


Edited: Strange, now no matter which puzzle code I put, it displays the generic "Condo Plant" puzzle for me. My code is "CE14EEB7547", can you test it on your site to make sure it works for you? May be some sort of conflict for me from another mod or something.

Someone else mentioned a similar issue in the 4.0 thread of this mod (and many reported it working fine.)

What browser and OS are you using?
Do you have a link to where it is on your forum (if publicly assessable?)

OK it is weird... I changed the code a little to take out some info that doesn't seem to do anything... on my forum pages it's all working fine- multiple puzzles each of the right picture... BUT, in my BB Code manager window I too only see the "Condo Plant" puzzle... as it's ony happening in my admin cp it's not a big problem but it does make me wonder what is going on... I know the header template isn't called in admin cp and some other javascripts of mine don't work at all in admin cp- I wonder if that has something to do with it... I will see what I can come up with.

That other site asks you only link to 1 of their puzzles per page to save their bandwidth so please don't use this more than once per forum page.

Use the same settings as above but the following replacement:



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

The example code would be:
[puzzle]20090907090552206[/puzzle]

To change the default number of pieces change the 2 instances of "4x4" to higher numbers like "5x5" or "6x6".


It's a bit of a pain to find the code you need to use... you need to go to the embed code which looks like:


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

You need to look at the line:

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

And take the number before the underscore: 2009090218222477 - that is what you put between the puzzle tags:
[puzzle]2009090218222477[/puzzle]

But I would use this puzzle site as a last resort, the original code if you can get it to work looks much better IMO.

Thanks

But, I agree that I'd love to have the first one working right. Any other info that I can provide to you to get it working?

Only if you can post it somewhere on your forum, I don't know if you have a 'test' forum maybe? If need be make it [puzzle2] or something so I can see how it works on your live site.

Eureka!!!

On your site the embedded code is all lowercase, ce14eeb7547.... on my site it's all uppercase... CE14EEB7547 - and it has to be uppercase to work...

Now the question is why is it lower case on your board- if you didn't type it in in lower case then it may be a plugin changing it to lower case... I know VBSEO has an option to convert all URL's to lowercase, 99% of the time this is a good idea, but this is one of those cases where it's a bad idea.
