Description
Turn your vBulletin Album system to an organized Gallery. Watch presentation!

The basic idea of Scandal's vBGallery is to organize vBulletin Albums AND forum attachments (pictures) to a section with lots of functions (categories, search, latest objects, statistics, menus etc).
Designed for vBulletin 4.2.0 (otherwise you must add the navbar links manually).



Features:
- Categories system for Albums (like Forums for threads)
- Five (5) levels of subcategories allowed
- Album, picture and comment search
- Who browsing Gallery (= Gallery Home, Albums, Pictures)
- Gallery statistics
- Forum attachments gallery (with ability to act it as category)
- Pages: latest pictures - latest albums - latest comments (with feature to turn them to "All")
- "My Comments" feature (display all user comments)
- My Pictures/Albums in "this" category
- Ability to set custom statusicons to categories
- Notifications to users with "uncategorized" albums to move them
- Ability to hide empty categories (= with 0 albums)
- Admincp environment
- No annoying copyright info

Language Packs:
- Deutsch (Sie) - Deutsch (Du)


Installation:

1. Upload all files of folder "upload" to your forum root.
2. Import *xml product.
3. (Important) Open template album_edit and find:

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

add below:

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

Done!

Upgrade:

1. FIRST OF ALL: Upload and replace all files of folder "upload" to your forum root.
2. THEN: Import XML product with "Allow Overwrite" to YES.

Who can view vBGallery;
Access to vBGallery has all members who belongs to usergroups with "Can View Albums" to YES.

What if I decide to turn off or uninstall vBGallery;
You are back to Albums without data lose (except the category of each Album - function of this hack).

How could I change the size of Gallery's thumbnails?

vBGallery use the thumbnail size you have set via admincp. To change it go to:
Admincp > Options > Message Attachment Options
... and set your value to "Thumbnail Size"
... afterwards you must rebuild attachment thumbnails at: Maintenance > General Update Tools > Rebuild Attachment Thumbnails

See attached. Almost all images are not loading in the gallery:
http://www.talkjesus.com/gallery.php

Image processing library is set to GD. GD module is installed on my server.

Attachments are currently being stored in the filesystem at /home/user/public_html/images/attachments
"attachments" directory has 777 recursively as well.

Here's the thing, if I click the picture title link in any of those blank thumbnail boxes the pictures do show.

Running
vBulletin 4.2.0 PL4
PHP 5.4.27
Attached Images
File Type: jpg error.jpg (65.7 KB, 24 views)

Hi,
I think will be really useful the opportunity to add a link to follow, when you click on an image, that by default, open the larger image, but if you want you will have the opportunity to redirect that click in another part.

Also the opportunity to decide if you need to add or not a little comment immediately down the thumbnail like a link or a little description will be great.

Will be also great if will be possible to manage in different ways all the category.
The settings that there are now, affect all categories...

So if I want to point two buttons that link 2 different galleries sections, now I always see in the same way, so will be good to personalize each visualization of the gallery.

For example
in one page/section I want show some premium photo in one way (for example 10 each page)
and in another I want show some others photo but in a different way (for example 50 each page)

I think it will be really a great mod if you add this features.

Won't install

I downloaded this and I'm trying to install it on (VBulletin 4.2.0 Patch Level 3).
I uploaded it to the root folder and when I go to import the .xml file, it tells me "invalid file"...I tried it both ways...uploading it from my pc and importing it from the root folder...neither will work...I edited the "album_edit" template also...But it will not import the .xml file...Any help would be greatly appreciated..I also tried it with "allow overwrite" and without "allow overwrite"...
This is the file I'm trying to import... "cpnav_sc_gallery.xml"
Thanks


F

I got it installed and it looks great!...Maybe for any future updates, you can think about adding a watermark maker so users can add a watermark to their pictures to prevent theft...That would be a great feature...
Thank you again

Question

I really like this product, but we have one problem with it.

When it is opened by a user from the NavBar, it takes so long to show that many users think something is broken. I suspect the problem is the size of our attachments since they are displayed as an album in the gallery.

Does anyone have ideas on how to spped up the launch by loading enough images to work with and then continue buffering in the background?

Of course that may not be the problem. I have not done anything to analyze the behavior.

It takes nearly 30 seconds to open the application. We have 210,000+ attachments in the Attachments Gallery.

Just testing this. It looks promising, but I just get a blank white page if I attempt to load the gallery from a mobile style. Is that normal? If so, has anybody out there developed mobile templates for this to fix that?

Why is impossible to see all the images loaded but only very few under "Latest Images".
The tab to set how images must stay there is not working.
I set 10.000 and are shown only few images, but there are many more.

I am not sure what youo want. "Latest" has a count associated with it. Why would you want to display all images there? Did you create categories to hold images? Are your attachments displayed in the Gallery?

I never use the latest images feature but I just checked it and on my board it showed the most recent 100 pictures.

I then edited the entry in AdminCP under vBGallery by Scandal to 200 and now it shows 200. I am concerned that if I set it to 10,000 it will take an hour or two to load.
