// Created by PixelFX & Respective Developers

//////////////////////////////==========================

NEW UPDATE COMING: I've got this system working with vb3.o and v2.0

New Credits:
Updated Hack: PixelFX
New Thumbnail Includer: Midnightz
And Thanks to everyone below.

Update Coming Soon!

INTRODUCTION:
After searching the web and a few sites, I wanted a way to show single / latest gallery images on my
vbhome/vbulletin forum. This hack, was setup in hopes to help others get a similar result to get gallery
images from photopost to show up on your vbhome/vbulletin front page. The concepts for this hack came is
from a combo of locations, as well as adding some of my own custom hacks and templates.

NOTE 4 vbindex: This hack should work with both vbhome & vbindex, the only difference for vbindex is you would make changes to the vbindex index.php not the vbhome index.php, also you would setup templates for use in the vbindex templates rather vbhome. Make sence? I'll rate a seperate txt for that soon.

CREDITS:
- Grunt for phpinclude,
- Matt Chroust for thumbincluder.php,
- Craigr for helping at vbhome, with support
- TECK for vbhome 4.2
- Enthusiast, Inc. for PhotoPost 4.1.0, RC1 & community
- Jelsoft Enterprises Limited for vbulletin 2.3.2
- vBulletin.org for support learning how to hack vb
- PixelFX for vb/home templates & some custom php vb hacking below.
- midnightz for updated thumbnail includer (see end of thread)

HACK ADDONS:
Forum home addon - Mickie D Follow Link below for addon download
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=123

Catigory Exclude Addon - PixelFX Credits in zip file,
http://files.pixelfx.ca/catigory_exclude_addon1.0.zip

LICENCE INFO:
To get all required files you need licenced copy of vbulletin v2.2.x / 2.3.2 & photopost pro 4.1.0+ /

I'm working on version for vb3.0 gamma/RC1 as well, which is in testing

FILES NEED:
vBulletin 2.3.3+ (installed) Tested on 2.2.x as well
PhotoPost 4.51+ (Choose to intergrate with vbulletin when you install photopost.)
vBHome 4.2+ (clean install)
thumbincluder.php tweaked, and link to database.
thumbincluder.txt modified by pixelfx for catigory addon - coming soon.
thumbincluder.txt version 2, by midnightz

I take no credit for the thumbnailincluder.php which is needed for this hack to run. Although I have made edits
to it, for my next version of this script

LOCATION OF THUMBNAIL-INCLUDER:
(requires membership account and licence for photopost)
http://www.photopost.com/members/for...threadid=26550

for the thumbnailincluder11.txt rename to what ever ya want file.php be sure you set varables to your liking.
Then upload, To your gallery's root directory. I've found you can use multiple files and it works fine See addon coming soon for that.

Example: http://www.url.com/gallery/thumbnailincluder.php

SUPPORT:
I will only support this hack on this thread currently. aka here,
if you would like to create addons please PM me
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...threadid=53539

BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING BACK UP YOUR FORUM DATABASE & GALLERY,
FILES ETC. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
I've tested this on my two vb sites, and it works awesome. However I can't predict what it
will do on sites that are heavely hacked.

LAST UPDATED:
December 7th,2003

(note that update news info can befound at end of thread)

Note: This should work if you edit the forum/index.php but only if you want images to show up in
your forums rather than your vbhome. This is something I need to test more, so will post alternate update shortly for that.

NOTE: this version is for vbhome 4.2 to php 4.1.0 intergration, again addon will be posted soon.
NOTE: Text File Download at buttom of file,

MAIN DEMO:
NA - Coming soon.. for version 2.0

COMING SOON:
Addon - News & Specific Image Catigory on it's own page.
Example of addon:
- Supports Random Images
- Supports Recent Images
- Supports Most Popular Images

This works with main hack, and or sub pages (coming soon!)

TESTED ON:
vbulletin v2.3.2 Final, Photopost 4.1.0 RC2 , and vbhome v4.2 (clean install)

PLEASE CLICK INSTALL:
If you use this hack, thanks

News Update: [12.04.2004]
I'm still working on a vb 3.0.3/pp4.8.5 version of this. Its also got a unique gallery/news system with the update. It's taken a while for me to get it out as I've been swamped with contracts, but I hope to release update soon.

not bad hack but i never got it to work on my vbhome for some reason i just got a black line.

Anyway i went about this another way and its paid off and without any hacking either.

In thumbincluder i changed Line 223 to this so when i clicked on Pics they opened in new window.

print "<A class=\"$class_link\" href=\"$Url_Path"."showphoto.php?photo=".$line['id']. "\" target=\"_blank\">";

Make sure u edit the file first so it actually does connect to your photopost database.

Now i know that was working i just added this code to my forum home template and it works a dream (i have it set to show last 8 new pics)

<IFRAME border="0" name="frame" scrolling=no
src="/******/thumbincluder.php" frameBorder="0" width="960" height="125"> </IFRAME>


**** location of where its stored on your server

yep i know its an iframe but if u read above the code is edited so it opens in new window - try it - works a treat for me anyway.

kewl idea

One of the things I've been wanting to do with the thumbnailincluder was add a feature to togge which gallery catigory the gallery image links to. I'm not quite sure what's involved with that yet...

but looking into it, anyone want to try and take a stab at it?

Hmm thats odd , mine are all clean installs on localhost and followed the instructions down to the word.
And not just one time too

I am currently using the instructions given by Craigr ( thread here ) and it works.

hehe, I read the photopost forum for the thumbnail includer, guess I need to read it again, what I saw was something to exclude directories, what I was looking for was something to just choose a specific catigory, however excluding works as well

I've just about got my next update ready hoping by the weekend...

smoothie thanks for your help in thread

PixelFx-

Actually, you can choose a specific category, instead of excluding all but one category. This is good for my site, where all I want is one category to be displayed

Vbhome 4.2 / Photopost 4.0 / vb 2.3.0 work well together... I just did a clean install and everything seems to be working well.

I just have to make install script, with some easter eggs

Demo: updated

Here is what I did to suit my needs running 2.2.9, Photopost 4.0 and vBPortal:

On the vBportal homepage, I simply added a center block, selected php script as the type and then added the following line:
include("http://www.allthingsmoto.com/photopost/thumbincluder.php");


I decided to add the thumbnails to the forumdisplay template in lieu of an already busy forum home page, so I added the following to forumdisplay.php:

// +--------------------------------------------------------------
// | Photopost to vbhome Link
// +--------------------------------------------------------------
$templatesused.= 'home_gallery';
eval( '$gallery = "' . gettemplate( 'home_gallery' ) . '";' );


This is identical to what Pixels instructions said to add to the index.php of forumhome.

I created a custom home_gallery template, added the postthumbnail line in the phpinclude template and then called the $posthumbnail from the home_gallery template. Works like a charm!

If you want to see yet another example of these modifications, you can visit www.allthingsmoto.com for the vBportal integration and http://www.allthingsmoto.com/forums/...hp?forumid=114 to see the thumbnails on my forumdisplay.

Photopost and VB are an awesome pair indeed!
