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

Scratch this, this seems to be an error with vBB in general and not the mod. I just did a test upgrade against a clone of my 3.8 forum and maybe that's part of it.

edit: Mostly fixed by rebuilding my attachment thumbnails.

Does this mod respect the user settings "private" and "public" when displaying albums and pictures?

Great mod *clicks install*

Yes. With one exception - guests can view thumbnails if their permission canviewalbums is Yes (the default vB behaviour is to disallow guests from viewing thumbnails - in either case they will not be able to view the full-size images)

I recently lowered the attachment thumbnail size on my forums as they were just too big. After resetting the counters, the images were properly affected in the gallery. However, while viewing the albums, the div frames around the thumbnails never changed. So now I have giant boxes with little thumbnails in them. Where would one go to change that? Based on the CSS I'd be willing to bet it's in the default vB code somewhere, just no clue where.

Have a look at mine: http://www.mx5nem.org.uk/albumall.php?
My thumbnail pics are set to 100x75 which for me are ample enough.

Can you add a screenshot or link to your public albums? I may be able to help out here.
Other than that, uninstall and reinstall the product to see if that resets the dimensions.

This is a great addon and i used it but ive noticed the plog pro is out on vb4 (i aint promoting it) just giving people a little information as i put iit on my site although it costs 20quid or so its a good product.

This however remains a great free addon so just food for thought for people thats all

I got 2 questions:

1. I own a forum about hollywood+bollywood, so i need a picture gallery where there would be a cover page of "angelina jolly" and when someone clicks on it, they'd be taken to the actual gallery, possible to do?

2. I checked one of the forums that had this plugin, isnt there any "next,previous" button?

Thanks.

Another bug I see is when you select on an option on the navbar, you get the Forum tab as selected. You can select Album Gallery, Picture Gallery, add album, etc and the Gallery tab will never be selected.... Is there a way to fix this?
