View Full Version : Show Last Comments column on Index?
March 19th, 2010, 09:50 AM
In the 'index option' part of the admintools, there's this Show Last Comments column on Index? option. I enabled it, but I don't get a column in the gallery index where the latest comments are shown.
Where do you get to see the last comments and how does that supposed to look like?

Do you have permissions set up in admin options that users can post comments?
March 20th, 2010, 11:12 AM
Yes, everyone (besides banned members) are able to comment on pictures.
How does that 'latest comments' column suppose to look like? I hope it's not the same as that 'latest comments' [u[block[/u]?

I wanted to know somtehing simulair, in gallery view you have it all nice with number of comments under the thumbnail. I would like that view on the gallery index page, also when you view like last 7 days i need that to be the same also. And then not show the categorie listing on the index. Is that Possible ?

tcb if I visit your gallery you have your category permissions set so guests can not view ANY content in your gallery just an FYI
The category index always displays on the index
You can only turn on or off the sidebar content.

i will have to look at the permissions again then, thought i had set it that guests could not post. The categorie index i did not see on that reeferfish site though. will look at my permissions and get back to you.
I just logged out and could see evertything.So i don't know what you mean

What i mean was all images on the index, or when you click like 7 days has the custom view like in the attachement

If you click on a search term your going to go to the search script not a category view.
Search - ReefTalk Gallery (http://www.reeftalk.com/gallery/search.php?searchid=3187)
Thats not the search displays like so

for one with the search it almost looks like that, but there isn't all the indormation, like the comments in the box under the thumbnails arent there. What i wanted to know was if it was possible to show it like in the thumbnail on both the search and index

Mannie those are different scripts and coded differently
The stuff not displayed on search are like views filesize rating etc

hmm, not sure you can see this without being registered, Innertraveler Art Gallery - All Images (http://www.innertraveler.com/publicgallery/showgallery.php?limit=last1&cat=) They have it like that. and at my gallery the search is like this Search - Pixelnutz Gallery (http://www.pixelnutz.com/art/search.php?searchid=10)

On this page I can see a 'last comments' column on the gallery index page: SurferMag Community Photo Gallery - Main Index - Powered by PhotoPost (http://forum.surfermag.com/photopost/)
How can I make this possible with my site? I did enable it in the adminpanel (like mentioned above).
When I disable the 'Do you want to enable the vB3 Integration which uses your vB3 headers, footers and styles?' option, I see the column. But it disappears as soon as I enable the function (bringing back my vbulletin integrated style).

Innertraveler is a site using an old photopost. The way search works is how it works on the site I noted and on your site because this is how it works in 7.01. 7.01 has the SEO features and all searches need to be handled through search. There can not be multiple urls to categories and photos for SEO to work.
tcb I cant view your site to suggest anything but the site you note is a default photopost setup. You have to allow comments and under index options you elect to show the last comments column. Thats the long and short of it.
You would have to post a test login for someone to see your content so we can see what you have set incorrectly.

But why is the 'latest comments column' showing when I tick off the vb3-styles integration (see post 12), and why does it disappear when I enable it?
Of course I enabled the option to show the column in the first place (see post 1).
Everyone but unregistered are allowed to post comments.
I don't see that 'latest comments' column on your gallery index. Did you manage to get it to work? I think it's just not possible, despite my settings?
Does anyone has this column enabled (and visible) with the vbulletin style integrated (as with Chuck's site)?

Ah okay your running vb4. That is because vb4 has a specific coded categories template based completedly on the vb4 forum layout.
A community photo gallery - ReefTalk Gallery (http://www.reeftalk.com/gallery/)
My site does not show a latest comments td

You can try using a categories template like this although have not personally tried this
March 21st, 2010, 10:09 AM
Ok so far i get it. But on reefertalk what you showed me the search at least had the comment there. As you can see on my site it only shows user and date, not sure why i assume you would have the same photopost version as i got or am i mistaken ?
March 21st, 2010, 10:22 AM
well go ahead and try the template I have maybe I modified mine it is my personal site afterall ;)
March 21st, 2010, 10:33 AM
Almost, it has a field with comments. But there are no numbers showing for comments.
March 21st, 2010, 10:37 AM
Again maybe I have modified my script to do something the default script doesnt do it is my personal site
The search script shows as your default script shows its not going to show like older versions your linking show.
March 21st, 2010, 10:45 AM
Thanks for letting me try it anyway. Guess i just have to live with it as it is with the script that came with my download. There is one more important thing i have to tell my host, affraid they have their standard answer for that. But that is another subject not having to do with the categories but the mail so i might get back on that in a new topic
March 21st, 2010, 11:43 AM
I think I gave you something that might work
March 21st, 2010, 12:30 PM
Only when you know what you are doing, i am not that one so it is fine and i thank you for your trouble. This one isn't really that important as the mail problem
March 21st, 2010, 01:47 PM
My response was about your mail issue I gave you something to try
