View Full Version : few questions.. pp8
April 21st, 2012, 10:10 PM
Hi there Chuck...
here is a screen shot ..I am looking to edit the amount of image under the main image..
also how do I change the size the main image /" medium image"
and how would I go about relocating the additional info box..
or add the text: on top of the url so you can see the url?
make it center ( what template is it )
to make it easier I added comment to the screen shot so you understand me better
thanks for your help
PS.. debating on vbgallery or pp8
I luved pp7.03 but vb is screwing everything up for me .. with there editor..
oh when do you / or should I say will you be integrating the vb4 editor ??
April 21st, 2012, 10:46 PM
ok scratch the resizing the med image . above
scratch the filestrip .. as well
I turned off the left collumn in everything other than the index..
stilll would like to center the info in the additional info pal..
( know the template name or what ever it's using to get it's info..and fix the IM / email thing there as well
the generated product... in all urls it shows this "example" %5Eppurl/search.php
what am I missing.. also I had to turn off the form block (forum wouldn't load ) and the members profile would not load
I turn these off
Photopost Featured Photos on Forumhome
Photopost Member Block
to get those to work again
seems like pppath is not working or I did not configure it .. or if I even had too ..
thanks for any info on this ..
April 22nd, 2012, 06:30 AM
ok I figured out the pppath by editing the xml..
I see it phrases smiles in the Edit Photo Description ( main discription of the photo) and in Last Comment Posted in the members profile but not when makeing a comment to a photo
so most I fixed or figured out ... been a while ( bare with me)
still the couple things like additional info pal..
oh and the latest comment on the index will not turn on..
can I edit it in the DD (phpmyadmin) maybe a setting not registering?
and is there a way to have larger images resized automaticly like before ??
If someone upload a image 1800 / 1800 it would resize them to what ever you had trigger it ..
Lost the exif info but it resized
April 22nd, 2012, 11:46 AM
The xml you edited you did not have to edit if you would have set permission on them per the install or upgrade documentation. Your real urls would have been replaced in there when generated. That is a common issue probally one of the top things I have seen on people upgrading. We spent some time on the documentation and explicitly noted to read the documentation before installing or upgrading in our announcements and still I answer this all the time. ;)
The additional info boxes are all in the showphoto template and you can edit however you see fit.
As far as comment on index they do display maybe your using the category cache?
Not sure what your talking about resizing as nothing has changed on image resizing. You never have been able to resize a main photo that has already been uploaded. The main photo is resized down to the max dimensions when a user uploads the photo and mediums and thumbnails are created at that time. You can resize mediums and thumbnails under scan database in admin.

thanks... permissions to the xml file was 777 from years ago from your addon..
other than that All folders are correct permissions
so I am not sure what other permissions you mean ?
I'm not using category cache, Even if I was why would it not show ? will figure it out
thanks for the info about the additional info box..
oh in my error logs I get (ckeditor.php' not found or unable to stat,) even with
"If using the Enhanced option above, do you want to enable the vB3 or vB4 WYSIWYG control in Post Comments?" off
will you be getting the new editor working with PP or vbgallery>?
This is the biggest thing becasue of the error logs filling up with this error..
April 23rd, 2012, 08:45 PM
there are no calls to ckeditor in pp8. we use a simple comment box. Based on this I have no idea where you would be getting this error.
the xml files I am referring to are located nowhere near where you might have installed some hack years ago. The documentation has complete instructions on upgrade or install procedures and where files are located to change permissions on.
April 23rd, 2012, 09:22 PM
ok what about the vb editor ?
will you be implementing it ??
sooner than later?
is it complex ?
April 24th, 2012, 08:11 AM
That is a complex answer with no real answer. If we can support it we will but definately not sooner so if anything later. We have more important stuff to work on like updating other products adding mobile support etc etc.
April 24th, 2012, 05:46 PM
what templates are for
Most Recent · Most Popular Images · Random
and the one for the side bar ??
April 24th, 2012, 07:10 PM
Your referring to the feature template and as far as sidebar thats many templates all depends on what your trying to talk about.
April 24th, 2012, 07:33 PM
thanks will check it out ... and check back..
the images in the side block are not centered
and for what I can see there is a extra <td width="25%" valign="middle" align="center" class="blockrow"></td>
in the Most Recent · Most Popular Images · Random
oh is there a way to make Most Recent only say Most Recent
and Most Popular Images only say Most Popular Images etc instead of Most Recent · Most Popular Images · Random
a couple other things ..
in additional info
the Linked Image : works great with images but when its a movie it's showing the the http://www.yoursite/gallery/example.wmv instead of the thumnail..
we went over this a while back and you fixedd it so the bbcode would be [media] or [mov] for movies
we allow .mov movies and people with windows if they don't have quicktime install they just get a blank..
is there a was for it to say if you wish to view this video you need to install quick time..
this happens with win7 ie9 and ff and opera
same goes for windows media player if they don't have it installed
April 24th, 2012, 07:50 PM
media I found here http://www.photopost.com/forum/1269136-post14.html
is there a way to show media direct link when it's a video and the linked images does not show when 's a video ?
at the end of that thread you never answered me about where that code goes to no show at all..
should be able to make the linked image not show but show the media link : instead .. no ?
April 24th, 2012, 08:07 PM
Not really sure what your referring to here. You can make any mods you wish at your own risk. Remember I am here to provide product support. We do not assist with or provide support for code hacks. I can say how our program operates but if your trying to change how things are coded your on your own for that. I may at times give a hint as your showing in your link above but that is up to me if I want to or not.
There should be a blank row if your results are not enough to fill out the whole table results on features. You can provide more information if you want me to respond further about that.
As far as quicktime I have no idea. We load an embedded player which operates regardless of whether someone has quicktime installed on there home player. The embedded players run online and have nothing to do with a users home computer.
April 24th, 2012, 08:22 PM
hacks............... lol your kidding me right look at the link I posted ... if your software supports media and in your additonal info show a .wmv for a IMAGE . this is not HACK............ it's a BUG ! this would be called helping you fix PP the right way.......... look at addition info...
under IM/ Email... there is a url there WHY .. it show be blank so the user can add a email address NO? lol
I don't get paid to fix it like you do... So I am not recoding it , Just asking how to fix issue I see.
I just PAY to use it and I would like it to do what it seems it should.. IM / Email is it not URL ... anyway
as far as the code I posted above .. I add 4 images or 6 images its still there
has something to do with
$blanks If it's blank then it should not show make a if condition...
as far as media
well there is a bug if you load a embedded player it does not work..
and I searched for it , so would be kind to tell me where I enable it ?
whats this then Daffy Duck - PhotoPost Photo Gallery (http://www.photopost.com/photopost/member-pics/p7824-daffy-duck.html)
while your there look at im/ email... and Linked Image
I don't use mac or like quick time .. but I installed it and I was right (the video worked..)
pp8 is the same as pp7 it's just in a different rapper
oh you did fix the editor error.. thanks for that
April 24th, 2012, 08:31 PM
You can apply any line changes I noted in some thread sure
remember your causing alot of confusion here as your asking support questions and then in the next breath asking how to change default coding
The im email social thing is suppose to be how it is coded it opens up your mail program.
I would have to uninstall quicktime to comment further but as with any video if the embed player works or doesnt there is the normal download link that displays for any video as that is how video works.
April 25th, 2012, 05:24 PM
I know I go one to another .. (sorry for the confusion) rather than start a S-load of threads.. I figure you would quote then as you answer .. each..
if you like I will start new thread for each
I was wrong about the
The im email social thing is suppose to be how it is coded it opens up your mail program... sorry bout that ..
but the rest stand..
April 25th, 2012, 07:43 PM
you can ask mod questions in the mod corner sure.
The quicktime thing we will have to see as maybe they changed things. The whole purpose of embedded players is to make sure things are easier. Like I said though most multimedia there is direct link as that is ultimately how we show any multimedia thing as a download.
I can add the media tag thing to the build thats easy enough.
April 25th, 2012, 08:40 PM
Sure I will post when I am looking for a mod..
but for now
I am trying to have it work.
the quicktime thing has not worked at least since pp7
thanks for adding the media tag .. looking forward to it
April 25th, 2012, 09:26 PM
well we never do checks to see what stuff a user has on there computer. we have embed players if there is one for a specific video but those are external code. We have no control over whether a player would work or not. As i stated we offer multimedia as a download that is how it is really supported. I will do testing and if there is a way to check to see if quicktime is installed or not I will respond in this thread.
April 25th, 2012, 09:55 PM
I know you have stated other software here are more important ATM and you all have PUT pp on the back of the priority list
But Have you ever looked at the URL here ?
It says Photopost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SO if your going to make software TEST it and make sure it works...
I don't have beta tester tattooed on me .. I feel like I'm one tho
you have a site .. and a test site Or your site what ever you use... test it .. I can pick this script apart
but it's not my job to fix it ..
you enable PP to have videos display ?? and use ffmpeg to make thumbnails..
but you CALL it a mod what I ask why they don't display in recent comments..
or why does the linked image add bbcode to media
Dude you have a site installed ... you get paid to work on this script...
you have more everything turned off at your place ... turn it one and test it out...
April 26th, 2012, 08:45 AM
So lets go through this one last time. Maybe I am not being plain enough explaining this.
We only have control over our software we write and how it operates. This is what we support.
We have options in our software like the ability to embed video in a page or if you have ffmpeg on your server to create a thumbnail.
We make no guarantees some other product code is going to work on all instances everywhere. That is not practical. It is much like the flash uploader. We include it but we do not support it will work everywhere.
We make no guarantees ffmpeg is going to make a thumbnail for every video you upload that is not our software that is a server level program. The same goes for any of the embedded video player. We do not manufacter quicktime.
Your expecting me to provide you an instant answer on a piece of software we do not write here.
Does this make sense yet here. I can not tell you anymore than I know already. We embed a quicktime player and we do it how every tutorial states to do it. This type of issue will take awhile and I will post in this thread when I see what I can find.
Here is a edited template that you can use this should show the download link till I can find out why quicktime software is not working.
April 26th, 2012, 05:53 PM
I understand fully.................. but ffmpeg is working ... making thumbnails..
flash player works fine...
and if thye didn't works I know from other posts you do not support them..
this is not the issue in my eyes
they are displaying like they should.................... in other parts of the gallery
except in the recent pal....
so in my eyes this is not ffmpeg because all it does it make the thumbsnail from the media YOUR software / code is displaying the thumbnails..!
they worked fine in pp7
as far as quick time I dont care about it ass much as WHY the code you wrote is not calling the thumbnail...
I am not looking for the embedded player .. I did not even now there was suck things..
windows media player will play .mov so I can simply change the code to use that ... but thats not the point here
take your time wit hthe quick time issue ...
the thumbnail in recent commet In the other thread is the most important thing ATM
April 26th, 2012, 06:11 PM
Hippy I showed you via a link right to my site that my recent comments are working fine with video.
I have asked several times for specific site information. I would need to debug your site and see what exactly is going on as to why yours is not working.
The domain name your telling us photopost is at appears to not be correct.
You can send site info through the contact us link.
April 26th, 2012, 06:40 PM
April 26th, 2012, 06:47 PM
interesting the no-ip.com site is correct. It goes nowhere
April 26th, 2012, 07:22 PM
It's Private it's not a Public site
April 26th, 2012, 07:29 PM
yeah private kinda makes it hard for me to provide support.
April 26th, 2012, 07:31 PM
sorry my friend...
your doing a great Job.. you fixed recent comment ;)
Keep up the great work..
April 26th, 2012, 07:33 PM
just takes alot longer if i can not see if your applying changes right. enjoy your evening off to see the american idol results. ;)
April 26th, 2012, 07:50 PM
LOL you watch that ........................ hahahahaha
have a good one ...
April 26th, 2012, 08:48 PM
