vBGallery 3.0 has a couple of new settings that depend on vbulletin settings AND/OR other vBgallery settings.
There are also a few settings in the stylevars:
- setting: Image as Avatar
If set to Yes, users will have the possibility to set the Image as their custom avatar.
But for the link to appear in editimage, you have to set the usergroup permissions of your users usergroup to allow: use custom avatar..
Note: if Admin is in a users editimage, he can only see the link if the user can use custom avatars (even if admin can)
- setting: use square thumbnails
You will only see the square thumbnails once you regenrated the thumbnails. If you do not only new thumbnails will be square...
- Activate Croptool
You will see a little thumbnail croptool in editimage, but only if square thumbnails are active
Note: If you have not regenerated the thumbnails (and they are not square yet) users will not really understand what the tool is for.
- Show Original Inline
Instead of loading the whole page again to show the original image (or to open it in a new window) you can open it inline by clicking on it.
setting to 0 disables the resizing of original
These are not real stylevars, but an easy way to make settings on a per style base. ACP->Stylemanager->Dropdown of the style (select:Stylevars)
At the bottom of the list there are a few sections for vbgallery stylevars.
(complete list coming before gold ist out)
- Stylevar: ppg_thumb_customstyle
Default setting : 0
if set to 1, in that style, it will use the bordercolor and framecolor that are defined in the stylevars ppg_thumb_border and ppg_thumb_framecolor.
If setting is 0, it will use bordercolor and framecolor used by vbulletin thumbs.
- Stylevar: ppg_thumb_hidegrid
Default setting : 1
Setting this to 0 will show a grid between the thumbnails, 1 hides the grid
- Stylevar: ppg_use_forum_statusicons
Default setting : 0
set to 1 to use forum statusicons
set to 0 to use gallery statusicons. the gallery statusicon path is defined in stylevar: ppg_statusicon_path. Note this path is relative to gallery not to vbulletin !!!
- title stylevars
These are explained in the new section ACP->vBGallery->Modify Layout....
- stylevar: ppg_arrow_shade
this sets the arrow ( seen in the title of browseimages to go back one level) to a darker arrow as needed in default style or in styles with similar background colors. IF you use a style that has a dark background though, it will be hard to see..
Change this stylevar to 'lite' and it will change to a lite arrow.. that is easier to see on dark styles.
- stylevar: ppg_use_forum_statusicons
If set to 0 Gallery will use the gallery statusicons...
If set to 1 Gallery will use the forum statusicons
In the package (do not upload directory) there is a set of gallery statusicons for different color styles... to use them, just rename them and overwrite the normal statusicons with those you chose..
forum_new-48.png and forum_old-48.png
Remember these are on a per style base...
These are only some Non obvious examples...
Once vbgallery is stable I will write a stylevar explanation for all vBGallery stylevars
