Goldbrick Media system for vBulletin 3.7

Thanks to all who nominated or voted this for MOTM.

Some of you might be looking for Anymedia. Well this has replaced it. It's a total rewrite from the ground up. A huge thanks goes to Sir Adrian for creating the framework. He can't cook soup but he sure can code.

Why the name goldbrck?

From Wikipedia:
Goldbricking, in today's terms, generally refers to staff who use their work internet access for personal reasons while maintaining the appearance of working.
From Urban Dictionary:
Goldbricking: To loaf or goof around on the job. Supposedly an old union term describing laborers (or more specifically, bricklayers) who were going so slow, it was as if each brick were made of solid gold. One can alse be referred to as a "goldbricker".

Dude, I spent all day at work goldbricking - surfing the web, making long distance phone calls - basically just picking my ass.
Goldbrick uses the following third party Products:

Default Media Object Width
The default width of the media object.
User could also set a user-defined width by adding an option to the bbcode.
How does this work?

This error.

What would you mean with "Download Goldbrick 1.8"?
The last version of Goldbrick isn't this? 1.5?

ps: and i don't have in the USERCP the "my media" option.

I'm using 1.8 on our forums, it works fine on YouTube it seems, but when i have an attachment in .wmv format, it won't play. I can download it and play fine.

Any ideas?

also, I've just had a user point this out to me, in 1.8, 'test' and 'this is a test' appear on attachments and when you click to view the entire attachment.

I'm sure this is just because it's a beta, but I want to be sure!

A lot of my members' posts area showing up as regular URL instead of media URL

Some youtube links used:

Others work fine odd enough. The forum category has GB enabled, member group is enabled, GB global option is also enabled (all media types)
Talk Jesus Forums: Christian Chat
games . chat . gallery . bible . videos

I have just installed this on my newly upgraded (3.7.1) forum and when we navigate to the forum it's not there but showing this error:

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

Please HELP! I have followed all the instructions and have successfully installed it on another forum without any problems.

Edit: I have re-uploaded the bbcode_create.php file but it has made no difference - my forum is still not showing - just the message.


I panicked! My other site is set up for php 5 and I thought I had for this too, but hadn't - I've fixed it by updating the .htaccess file and did the php5.ini whilst I was at it. Was gonna delete this but it may help someone else sometime. Thanks for a wonderful mod!

Images not appearing in Lightbox

Hey, Nix.

Okay, I've been working on this for a while and reading posts in here but haven't managed to solve it.

I've upgraded to 1.8 but can't get my thumbnails to show in the lightbox. I've triple checked the settings, forum and user permissions - I don't think the issue is there.

The videos are working just fine so I am at a bit of a loss as to why the images aren't. This works A1 in my other forum where I have the same GB settings. The only difference I can see is that this forum has bigger thumbnails. I have updated all relevant counters just in case that would solve it but it changes nothing. Any ideas?

We love this mod and appreciate all the work you have already and continue to put into it - a mega thank you for letting us have it free of charge.

Edit: Have resized thumbnails and removed borders. Also re-updated counters. No change.

Here's another test version before I put it out live.

I switched back to highslide but I change the way it looks. If you don't like it you can change it to what suits your needs. All highslide settings are in the goldbrick_header template.

I added Zend Cache for media cache so it doesn't have to hit the database if you're not using vb cache. To use it chmod the goldbrick/cache folder so it's writable by the server. Then turn on Goldbrick Cache in Goldbricks options.

This version will empty the gb_cache, gb_media and vb's postparsed tables in the database to prevent any errors.

Bug Fixes that I remember
Back to highslide with a packed version.
Fixed media embed
Fixed attachments

A demo on a friends site.

Thanks Nix... we'll choose Yes for override when import this product? Will it automatically rebuild all media links or we have to manually do each?

Did you fix DailyMotion, MegaVideo?
