Foldergallery: Support & News
« on: March 13, 2011, 07:41:47 PM »
Maybe you remeber the anouncement about 2 years ago about the foldergallery (it's also the module of the year 2010 on websitebakers.com)! I'm still working on this module wich is now aviable with a lot of new fuctions. So, i decided to start a new Thread about the foldergallery.

Newest Version: 1.21
Download on websitebakers.com

Feautres:
- create easily imagegalleries with different categories
- Thumbnails are created automaticly
- categories based on the folderstructure on the server
- description for every categorie/image possible
- supports different lightbox-scripts (have a look to the Showroom on foldergallery.ch
- Design based on Templates, so it's easy to make layout changes
- Settings like Pictures per page, Thumbnail Size, Thumbnail Ratio adjustable in the backend
- and many more...

official Module Home:
www.foldergallery.ch
I'know this page is in german. If there is someone out there who want's to translate the homepage to english just contact me!

If you have any questions or problems with the foldergallery use this thread!

For german speaking people there is also a german support thread!

Greetings from switzerland!

Heya,

I'm a WebsiteBaker beginner have been looking for an update of this project. THUMBS UP for this update.
Installed the auto gallery yesterday, but can't get thumbs to work - so I'm happy to find your update.

Keep up the nice work.

Grüße aus der Nachbarschaft (DE) ;)

Hi CerVanteZ

And the thumb creation from the foldergallery is working?

If you like to share your experience or problems in german have a look at the german "Thema"

Bug in Version 1.20:

I found a bug in the newest version of the module: In the frontend categories wich contain digits or underscores are not displayed.

EDIT:
Please use the version from websitebakers.com or foldergallery.ch
If you don't want to update the whole module replace at least the function.php file!

This problem concerns only version 1.20, installed bevor march 15. 2011!

Hello KEnik

which version do you use?
if you use version 1.20 from websitebakers.com please download the module again and install it again. this should solve your problem (there was a little bug about categories which contain numbers in the name, read more about this in the last comment in the english thread)

please use the english thread next time!

I use WB Version 2.8.1 Revision 1287 ;
FolderGallery 1.20 - downloaded and instaled today.

I try use fixed   functions.php.txt - not help

Finaly I reinstall  modul > do not help.

I must use date in name of folder for best ORDER..

PS: I  do not found EN forum tread until you post link. On page for download Modul is link to DE forum and on DE forum is not link to EN forum.

Thank you for helping me.

OK, there is another bug...

open the functions.php file and change this line (line 201):
Code: [Select]
if (!preg_match('~^(/([a-zA-Z0-9_]/{0,1})*[^/])$~', $string)) {
to this:
Code: [Select]
if (!preg_match('~^(/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]/{0,1})*[^/])$~', $string)) {(Add a - after 0-9_)

this sould solve the problem!

Hello,
I will try to use variables:
VIEW_TITLE - like a part of website title <head><title>..
CATEGORIES_TITLE - - like a part of website title
CAT_DESCRIPTION like a page description

Is there a solution to use these variables in templates?
in VARS i dont see they
Code: [Select]
echo '<pre>';
print_r(get_defined_vars());
echo '</pre>';

Or I must write function to check and return if posible to get datas from database by $_GET['cat']

Are you talking about VIEW_TITLE, CATEGORIE_TITLE and CAT_DESCRIPTION in the template files?
If yes, these are not variables, these are placeholders which are replaced by the view.php.

And as a Module has no access to the <head> of a page it's not possible to modify the page title and description. To do something like that you have to write a snippet or droplet which get's the data directly from the database.

There's a new Version (1.21) of the foldergallery, which fixes a few bugs of version 1.20

Please update your version!

If created a little survey about which Lightbox-Script are used with the Foldergallery. The survey is in the german part of the board, but as the question is only "Which Lightbox-Script do you use?" it should be possible for everyone to vote!

For future versions of the Foldergallery, I would concentrate my work on the most used Scripts (like adding a page to edit the settings of the lightbox)

So please vote for the Scripts you use!

Go to the survey

Hello again. Well, it seems I only have this half working. You can see a test here

http://stormvisions.com//pages/library/reference-inspiration/web-gallery.php

I have the following issues

1 - in the back end under Modify Images I cannot see the images or add text. They appear on the site front end, but show nothing on the back. I guess this might be related the the / problems I was having.

2- I need the description on the front end.

Any help appreciated. The gallery module is beautiful otherwise.

Is there a way to automatically sync the database without having to go to the page and manually click the "Sync" button?

I prefer that my client not edit the gallery page itself and only need to upload the photos in the correct media folder.

You could try the alternative MiniGallery

Well, while MiniGallery appears to be a nice simple solution, I particularly wanted FolderGallery so that the client can easily manage image uploads (and removals) through the media section and I can hide all the settings from the client. Not only that, I need to allow more image types than just JPEG, but thanks for the suggestion.

I just installed the module (latest one for WB2.8.2, from the authors website), but there seemed to be no option to sort the images. According to a screenshot on the authors site there should be a link to open the sorting function, but I didn't see it. When I looked at the source code, I noticed there is a link without a link text, so it's not visible. Further investigation showed that a line was missing from the language files.
In the EN file it should be this:
$MOD_FOLDERGALLERY['SORT_IMAGE']  = 'Sort Images';

In the other language files it should be added and translated. In Dutch it's:
$MOD_FOLDERGALLERY['SORT_IMAGE']  = 'Sorteer foto\'s';

I also checked and corrected the Dutch language file, as it contained errors, and sloppy translations. Here it is:

I found a bug. When you edit category details and use the Update Databse button after that, the module creates a copy of the complete category. Every time you use the update button, another copy is added.

As far as I know it's the only module for 2.8.2 that supports descriptions. So again my question: can't this be fixed? I'm no coder, so I cannot estimate if this can be fixed easily or not.

I understand...  :|
But didn't you work on this module as well? Can't you fix it? I'm even willing to pay for it. I have a feeling that it's actually a small bug to solve, and only requires some SQL adjustments.
