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

I like your MOD, but I need the tools for setting of usergroup permission view.

Thanks.

This is going to be one of the most important mods ever released on Vbulletin. This is what the community has been asking Vbulletin to do since time began. I know that if you develop it and add cool features, keep it up to date and sell a full feature suite many will buy that too.
I have several Photopost installs, and like many others have given up on the terrible support Photopost give.
Tagged and watching... Nominated too!!

Does this mod allows images only to be added from a specific group and or account? Rather than showing everyone's images.

This is a great modification! Some ideas for future releases, I would like to see the categories displayed as a side menu as opposed to the forum like display kind of like a widget. I would also like to see the ability to create more subcategories. I also think the album display should be easier to edit. I don't like how close the image is to the wording and it's taking me some time to figure out how to change this. Other than that, I think this looks really promising and I can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Works fine on my vB 4.2 PL1.
Some ideas for future releases:
- configuration for album thumbnail size (e.g. via ACP)
- easier edit of albumdisplay
- show picture comments & infos below the picture

Anyway this looks really promising

Looks really good so far, we've installed it and are really happy with the way it integrates with VB 4.2.0.

Some sort of moderation on new uploads would be nice to see in a next version!

Cannot choose a catagory!

Hi:

I installed it and set up a few catagories and it went smoothly. When creating albums, it did not let me choose a catgory. I have about 20 catagories created, but only see one with one sub-catagory, a short list. The rest is not there.

Can you tell me what happened?

A short note: Is it possible to have a Golld version cheap, so everyone can buy one for your good work?

Thanks.

Victor

If this is going to be next release, it is a perfect.

Installed, voted, and nominate.

Victor

Hi all:

I figured with out already. Thanks.

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

Check v1.2
