I have to say I'm disappointed at the level of supported offered by photopost, most of my questions haven't been answered and my forum has been down for a day now as a result.
I've followed the installation instructions for vbgallery 2.4 for vb 3.6x there are bits of those instructions missing. Now I have a blank page instead of a forum that I don't know how to fix, I'd appreciate some help please.
Now you can also change the /gallery/ name it could rename to /photos/ , but would best be done before install.
There are no file edits to the forum needed to install the gallery only on the /gallery/gallery_config.php file.
It's time to add the PhotoPost vBGallery settings and templates. Run the install script from your browser by going to
Content visible to verified customers only.
This script will make all necessary changes to your database and install the templates, phrases, settings, and etc for you. Once the script is done, go to your Admin CP and you will see a new group of options called "vBGallery" in the left frame. That is where you will modify the settings and set up your new Gallery.
Once you have finished please remove vbgallery_install.php, product-ppvbgallery.xml in the forums/admincp folder.
- If your still down shoot me some ftp / AdminCP access via PM I'll see whats up ill be happy to take a look.

Your install was fine.
- The gallery_config.php file had an ending slash that needed to be removed.
- Your server is running in "safe mode", I have changed your file storage setting in the gallery to operate.
During the install there was a screen to input your URL's and correct PATH's and it submitted blank. I'll work up a field check on future versions.
Nope, I'm using Vbadvanced for the front page, www.banyuhattenaikido.co.uk which should have a different banner header than the forums, currently the banner header for the forums is on the vbadvanced page and it wasn't before the install of vbgallery. Thats what the header template customisation is all about.
I honestly can't remember exactly was a while back, but when you install vba the header navbits mess up and point to the wrong place, its easily fixed but I never did as it came in handy. This is the image I need in the forum:
The link in Bold is the header image for the gallery.
Cool, only thing was I had it setup so that if you clicked on the banner image in the forum it sent you to www.aikidoyuishinkai.co.uk and I didn't need any link on the vBA header. How would you add that?
