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

Hi there,

I did the German translation - Deutsch (Sie) - for Scandal's gallery. If you like to use it, just download the xml-file. To install the language file:
  • Go to your admincp -> Languages & Phrases -> Download / Upload Languages
  • Find the downloaded file on your computer
  • Select the language
  • Make sure you select "Yes" on "Ignore Language Version "
  • Click "Import"
  • Click "Done".
The file - Deutsch (Du) - follows in a few days.

Install instructions in german language:
  • Gehe in's admincp -> Sprachen & Phrasen -> Sprachen herunterladen/ hochladen
  • Finde die heruntergeladene Datei auf Deinem Computer
  • Wähle die Sprache
  • Stelle sicher, dass "Ja" bei "Sprachversion ignorieren" ausgewählt ist.
  • Klicke auf "Importieren".
  • Klicke auf Erledigt"
Well done - gut gemacht.

Edit (21.06.2012):
File - Deutsch (Sie) updated
File - Deutsch (Du) added

Edit (27.06.2012):
File - Deutsch (Sie) updated
File - Deutsch (Du) updated

Best regards

L.R.

This makes the Gallery very slick Would be real nice if you could put a limit on the sizes of the images displayed and open in a new window when clicked on?

Hi Scandal,

Thanks a lot for this updated version, I'll try it and update the translation. In the current translation there are also some forgotten phrases, sorry.

Best regards

As usual, great work and professional support

Is there any feature to show the latest comments in the main page (i.e in sidebar)?
+ Can we have a live demo or if anybody install it and can put his website link?

Thanks dear

Any option to enable age locking so people under/above a certain age can't view the category? there's already a plugin for this, but only for forums, not for your plugin.

Hi Scandal.
I really like your product and think it would fit my needs very well, especially the ability to add categories to albums.
The only thing that would be missing for me is a lot of my members add pictures to their posts as attachments. Would there be a way of incorporating this into your great mod?

Hi there,

I updated my posting with the language file(s). Please follow the link in the product description above.

The only thing that would be missing for me is a lot of my members add pictures to their posts as attachments. Would there be a way of incorporating this into your great mod?
This would be another nice feature, but there exists a mod "attachment gallery". Maybe this one's a solution?

But another great feature would be boxes with latest and random pics on gallery.php.

Best regards

L.R.

I am using the attachment gallery already but would rather one mod do everything and I like Scandal's mod a lot. The attachment gallery does not have the options Scandal's does.

If you could somehow incorporate this Scandal, I would make the switch in a heart beat.
