View Full Version : Photopost wrap flaw??

December 20th, 2008, 10:32 PM
I'm looking for a photo gallery software for vbulletin - while reviewing the demo I found what looks to be a "wrap" flaw ...

The winning penalty - PhotoPost Photo Gallery (http://www.photopost.com/photopost/showphoto.php/photo/1051)

A user could come in and post an unbroken string of text and it could really throw off the sites layout.

I notice it seems to also affect this vbulletin layout - (better check mine as well) ...

Possibly this was something with VB 3.6.7 - I checked my forums 3.7.4 & another running 3.6.8 and I don't have this issue ...

Can anyone check their 3.6.7 forum and see if this has been corrected?

Well from what I know about the php wrap function you must actually have words or spaces for things to wrap. Doing a long string like that you can not wrap because there are no words or breaks

PHP: wordwrap - Manual (http://us.php.net/manual/en/function.wordwrap.php)

Like I said I tested the exact same string of text on my 3.6.8 forum and in a 3.7.4 forum and they both wrapped the string of text.

It must be an issue either with photopost and/or the version of VB on this site.

I guess I can join a forum/site that is running the lastest VB and test the string on their site - get the answer myself.

No I dont think it has anything to do with wrap. vbulletin could have some sort of other code that may break up single stings when a user messes up and does that but as I noted its not wordwrap and we do not wordwrap anyway in our program. We limit strings for display where we need to.

I went and tested photopost in a vb 3.7.4 gallery and it wrapped the string of text, so I figure its just in 'this' vb 3.6.7 version and not in photopost - possibly the templates on this site were edited and someone messed it up ;)

Either that or IF there was an issue with VB they must have fixed the issue in later verions, but from what I found its just an issue with this site and not in the photopost product.

Now back to reviewing the photopost product a bit more before deciding.
