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

Will the new versions available here for download work on VB 4.1.3?
If yes, should I upgrade the plugins now or after upgrading to 4.13?
Will I loose any settings during the upgrade (I see I need to uninstall)?

Thanks
Iam using it with vb 4.1.3, I installed 1.08 before on VB4.0.4 did not do any upgrade now and its all fine


I would like to ask all of you, when user place new picture in his album....he gets on top of the list...but in my case picture displayed is his album cover not his last picture
is this how it should be or...?

Yes, it is, the user can select the cover by himself out of all the pictures in that album.

Is there any hack that gives users feature to easily embed picture from their albums into a thread?
Maybe drag/drop or similar?

Is there a way to make a notification go off whenever someone replies to your comment from their album?

I wanted to contributing back a modification that I made to this for an upcoming site. I didn't like that the Navtab presentation was a dropdown menu and different than my other tabs. So I edited the system to work like other tabs.

First I created a new template called gallery_navbar_link:

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

Then I rendered the template with this hook:
Product: Picture and Album Gallery
Hook Location: process_templates_complete
Title: Gallery Navtab Link

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

Just an alternate presentation if you will. You can see an example on the site that I am working on at http://www.wayneflix.com

Whoops! Meant to quote Wayne.

His site had a little quirk I was pointing out, looks like he already fixed it.
