Integration Issues PP 5.31/VB3.6
Did the upgrade to PP 5.31 yesterday -- and there are a few issues using the multiple skins of my VB3.6 forum. Please help me get this fixed -- I'm almost there with having everything just like I want it.

Problem #1: When I went to the photo album the styles from the board show up except for the header banner. I right click the header for properties -- and this was the location it wanted to get the header. http://www.moparstyle.net/photoalbum/images/headerbanner/brrmonsterbanner.jpg -- it should have been http://www.moparstyle.net/images/hea...sterbanner.jpg So I just made a copy of the headerbanner directory in the photoalbum/images/ directory -- but the problem repeats itself in every directory. For instance if I click a photo, then the banner goes to red X again and the location it looks for the banner is changed to http://www.moparstyle.net/photoalbum/showphoto.php/photo/4945/limit/images/headerbanner/brrmonsterbanner.jpg
Am I doing something wrong (I can't see it) -- or is there a minor bug? I'd sure like to get this fixed.
(HOURS LATER WITHOUR RESPONSE - DESPITE SEEING DEVELOPER ON_LINE) Alright since I needed to get this done on the weekend and I didn't receive an answer -- I found (after many hours) that if you put the whole URL in the VB Style header file name -- it will work. I hopes this helps someone else from not having to waste as much time as I did. Still have the other problems that I'll be wasting my time to resolve if the post goes unanswered.
STILL NEED SOMEONE TO ROLL ME A BONE WITH
Problem #2: Because all of my style banners (900 pixels), advertising banners (3 X 300 pixels), and navigation buttons (6 X 150 pixels) in my headers total 900 pixels wide -- I've set the albums width to be 900 pixels wide. If you quickly look at the albums, you will see that the PP portion under the header is stretched to more than 900 pixels wide. It appears that the Navbar is what is setting this off. Can this be fixed by my modifying a template -- and if so which.
Problem #3: More of a question. On the background of the table the index thumbnails are in -- why do you use the Vbulletin CSS for Borders for the color. It makes it very difficult have a dark border or having dark text in that box. If you make the text light -- then you can't see it in the forums or Portal. It would make more sense to use a background and text color from the same CSS instead of different -- as they're aleady matched for contrast.
OK -- in case this happens to someone else -- I change the code in MKPortal
Your url in your category description in Photopost is stretching your photopost screen remove the url.
Yes if your using custom styles not the vb default you need to use full url's in the styles admin.
1. http://www.moparstyle.net/photoalbum...8/limit/recent Where?
2. Point is that:
a. It shouldn't as it is easy enough to do what everyone else interfacing with VB does. To make photoPost intergrate -- you shouldn't have to modify everyother application that interfaces with it.
b. A mere mention of this somewhere in the config-inc or on the configuration scree would sure help people not waste their weekends trying to guess how undocumented paid for software works.
I use a lot of php/mysql software (phpadsnew, vbulletin, simple machines, a chat room, portal, link site, ..........) but the most expensive (PhotoPost and Classifieds) of all the applications gives me the most trouble upgrading and has the most worthless documentation. The lack of customer service/poor documentation/most troublesome of all upgrades is going to take a couple of potentially good products and scare away half of the prospective customers who hear of the problems.
we do not do what vbulletin hacks or addon's do as simply put we never modify vbulletin code or files since we do not install into vbulletin like hacks or addons do
Our program is outside vbulletin hense we auto rewrite normal vbulletin image links but if your using custom styles as you are you must use full urls.
OK -- I'm taking a deep breath and reading what you have said on why the middle section is wider than 900 pixels
Please give me another hint.
If it were me i would turn off last photo upload or last comment as a quick fix that should put the tables back into line untill you find out what is causing it.
It has to be one of the templates screwing this up -- just don't know which.
try cutting down the size of the cat bar images for photopost by 30pixels see if it makes a diference.
Taking a quick look, here are some issues I saw:
Then, you have this:
You can either reduce your PhotoPost width to 850 or use 100%.
PhotoPost is fitting inside your wrapper - when your wrapper sets the conditions for PhotoPost, then there isn't anything we can do within PhotoPost to compensate for that.
Keep in mind, PhotoPost is a seperate application and integrates with vBulletin; it does not require vBulletin to run, nor is it a "plug in" for vBulletin that uses vBulletin code. PhotoPost can run independently or with over a dozen other forums and while we make our best effort to work right out of the box with as amny configurations as possible; that doesn't mean that those with custom setups won't have to some tweaking.
I changed my width to 850 to compensate the 25px padding -- and that worked.
THis weekend, I need to look int0 what what going through my mind to have that in the first place -- when I have time to see what changing it will do to my other integrated (with VB3.6) applications. I have so many different applications integrating with VB -- that any change is going to affect something else somewhere. Five years of evolution on that site has gotten it to where I can't remember the reason I had to do some things to make other things woked.
I'll also look into the other issues in the header code.
Thank you for spotting this for me.
instead of ---- mysite/links.php/
So none of my navbar links work on my photopost page:(
Thank you. I DO LOVE Photopost, after I fix this minor boo boo all will be good!!!!B=0
