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....)

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.

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

  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


To update from an older version you MUST uninstall the product (admincp->manage products: delete Picture and Album Gallery). Then re-install as above.

tested on vb4.0.3
Fixed navtab menu - picture and album URLS swapped

Converted navtab/bar into products to make installation easier.
Due to popular demand added navtab drop down menu (with help from
TimberFloorAu )
Cleaned up code and templates
Phrased menu items - upgrade is not required unless you use other languages.

fixed database connection issue

deleted unused template from product xml
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
Wasn't remembering search query between pages.

This is my first "proper" product so comment/criticism/etc is welcome

I'm having a permission's issue.

If you "private" (Only visible to contacts and moderators) an album. Anyone in your friends list cannot see the album (or pictures in it) from the "gallery" link. But you can go to the person's forum profile, you can view the album (and pictures) there.

That is nothing to do with this mod, it is either your computer setup or your Google Chrome setup.

Try searching the error in Google and you'll find some solutions.

hello, does this support multiple users (eg. let users have their own gallery and create their own album) like PhotoPost?
