PhotoPost vBGallery v3.0 (for vBulletin 4.0x) released!
It's been a long time coming - nearly rewritten from the ground up and fully templated with vB4.0.
Special thanks to Luc who was instrumental in getting this release done for vB4.
To upgrade, you will need to upload all files and run the upgrade script from: admincp/vbgallery_install.php (select upgrade).
Notes about Flash Uploader
Just to remind you that this is a 3rd party plugin.
On some servers it will just simply not work.
Major changes to flashuploader from 2.5x
- You do NOT need permission "can upload from server" anymore
- User can now set amount of files to process in one pass without the "Upload from server" screen.
- If a user uploaded some files, and did not process them, he will see how many files there are to process when he loads Upload Page.
- You can set the maximum number of files to upload in one go in ACP
- Should work with flash 9.x and 10.x
- User can switch to normal upload if he wishes.
ATTENTION: Upload mode is cookie driven. This means that if you have uploaded in standard mode, you will only get to flash uploader if you select it manually!
If you use it once, you then will always get back to flash upload until you select normal upload again.

Did we have VB Album import scrip in this version?
Luciano said that we will have this import script in Gold release.
It's not available just yet.
Can we install Gallery for 4.0 over Photopost Pro 7.2
Just updated, here's a link. Let me know if I should do anything to improve what I have going.
WCB Photo Gallery
Except 1, the others are just suggestions Otherwise, nice site..
As long term tweaking project i would (but that is a vbulletin thing to change) add specific status icons in the colors of your style. (reddisch statusicons for red style, orange status icons for orange style etc...)
you can in vbulletin set separate image directories for each style..
example for orange style: images/orange_images
in vbgallery you would have to do the same.. (you can find precolored statusicons in the do not upload directory... )
But you would have to get vbulletin icons first, so that is not your priority.
depending on your license (But chuck could explain that better)
technically you would turn off Photopost, install vbgallery, then import images from photopost pro to vbgallery, then rebuild the images in gallery and uninstall photopost pro..
before doing so be aware that:
A. not all features of pp7 are supported in vbgallery
B. not all categories can be imported to vbgallery (import of user albums is not supported yet
C. it takes some time as all images have to be rebuilt and during import phase it can be that you will use (for a short time) twice the disk space that you needed when having only one product. (this is only relevant for very big galleries )
The steps Luciano notes are correct because these are different products and features vary from program to program as well as the import options to import to vbGallery are not mature. So you may lose features content etc depending on your site.
There is no timeframe established as to when any kind of side scripts like importers would be updated to vb4 inclusion.
I am planning on spending the weekend looking over a way to use the script and convert from PPpro to Vbgallery. My main concern is that I have template incompatibilities with PPpro and Vbulletin. This is mainly because PPpro isn't fully integrated with Vbulletin and instead uses the header, footer and CSS. I'm finding it increasingly time consuming to fix templates, but to be fair some of the templates we use on our other sites are a little complex. On the other hand Vbgallery lends itself to my templates so well that integration is seamless. I am concerned that Vbulletin is already at version 4.0.9 and Photopost have no plans to develop this at the moment, if at all. So I am asking for permission to use the script and that might mean hacking it.
I am really not sure what you are asking here. We always are in development.
If you own a license you can use either Pro or vbGallery but NOT BOTH at the same time without purchasing a second license. Now your free to hack your code the only thing you give up there is the ability to obtain product support without placing clean code back on the server.
@ chuck I own several licenses hence the variation in pppro and vbgallery so, no I do not run Vbgallery and PPpro on the same server :cool:
I'm actually asking for permission to download and hack the import script not the gallery. I'm aware that you allow hacks of the gallery and the problems they can cause support.
Because I'm not sure who owns the copyright on the Import script I thought I should ask what restrictions were in place rather than just downloading it hacking it and getting in to deep water with copyright infringements.:D
Well we do not allow hacks as a company in whole. Your free to hack any of our scripts you own all I am saying is there is no support given on hacked scripts. So hack away ;) Just realize we can not provide support on such things.
