Chit Chat / 4images Licence & other questions
« on: October 25, 2006, 06:59:58 AM »

I went through the online license information but can’t seem to get it. So I am asking it here.

1) I am using AdSense & some other affiliate ads on my site. Does that entitled me to get a license?? (I no its answer though :) )

2) There is a site "" (Down coz of server at the moment) they were using 4images to Sell High Quality wallpapers. (Subscription kind of thing) Do they need to have a license to do that??

3) I am thinking to have one more wallpaper site where users will be able to make a small donation/fee to remove all the Advertisement on the site. It’s like “pay $5 to become Premium member and see no ad”. All the wallpapers will be available for registered & non registered users. Does this thing entitle me to go for a License Version??

4) 4Images is available free and I respect it. But can you (me) charge others to provide your services like installing 4images, maintaining it & customizing template?

Chit Chat / Protecting site contents
« on: September 12, 2006, 07:18:00 PM »
How can I protect my site from being copied by different website-copier utilities?? If not the all site, I would like to protect one folder where I have all my images stored.

Actually, someone is copping all my wallpapers and there is not much I can do other than banning his IP. But that’s only possible when I can see this (Being Online). That person is causing me more than 500 MB in such a short time. (I know it’s not possible otherwise) On my site, if you are a "Guest" you can only download 10 wallpapers. But if you are registered user u have no limit.
But by using "Web-Copier" i cant use this.

Is that possible by using Robots.txt or htaccess ?? If so, how?

Discussion & Troubleshooting / DB Queries Issue
« on: September 07, 2006, 04:21:37 PM »
I have another thread here about my DB problem.
V@no replied to disable "random" images on pages but I do need this thing so I don’t want to disable it.

No I am trying to investigate the issue if REALLY my site is making 50,000 queries per hour even with 50-60 page views per hour.
So please help me do so. My questions are:

1) When I enable to show queries from constans.php, Along with the line telling no. of queries per hour, I also get the detail of timing spent on each query. ( becomes a long long page) How can I disable to show this timing?

2) Please tell me that when a search engine spider is crawling my site, do they also add toward no. queries on each page?? (like normal users)  And if they do, does Caching effect the spider as well ??

(I am on v1.7.1 & has enabled Cache feature with timeout 30 minutes)

Mods & Plugins (Requests & Discussions) / How to get 4 thumbnails randomly
« on: September 01, 2006, 11:40:17 PM »
I want to get 4 random thumbnails and to use them along with google ads.
I saw this on HotDT.Com
You can see it on the main page below "Hot Categories"

Adding static images like this is no problem but how Maxpaul is getting random images for this thing. I would like to know.


See this link
Can you tell me what would be the best way to show categores like this ??
And is it possible to show this on a custom template as well.
The site is by maxpaul

Sorry if i am posting this in the wrong forum.

Discussion & Troubleshooting / Adding Categories Menu
« on: July 07, 2006, 11:08:17 PM »
For my site BestofWallpapers.Com, I am working on a new way of showing categories & subcategories. (Using some JavaScript)
(Like a right hand menu for Categories)

I don’t know how the current system works but my changes are working fine. Although I have to edit the file manually every time I add a new category. (I don’t how could I make it work the usual way)

Anyway, I was wondering that instead of adding this long code to all html files would it be possible to make a new html file say catmenu.html and then include it in other templates by using some tag like {catmenu}

Is it possible?  :?:

User 'site_wallpapers' has exceeded the 'max_questions' resource (current value: 50000)

Please tell me what to do.  :cry:

Chit Chat / Make your Gallery go Crazy
« on: July 03, 2006, 12:58:33 AM »
Open your 4images gallery.
Just copy paste the following JavaScript code in your web browser’s address bar and hit enter. See what happens with your site.
I am sure you will be amazed.

Code: [Select]
javascript:R=-1;DI=document.links;DIL=DI.length;function A(a,b,c){return Math.sin(R/350*6.28*b+a)*c+c}function B(a){DIS=DI.item(a).style;DIS.position='absolute';DIS.left=A(5,100,500);,60,150)}setInterval('R++;B(R%DIL)',15);void(0)

Discussion & Troubleshooting / Adding Keywords and Descriptions
« on: May 10, 2006, 12:19:22 AM »

While setting up my site, I never thought of adding Keywords & Description. But now I want to add both of them but I am confused how I would be able to do it with 5500+ images ??
So can some one suggest me an easy way of adding Keyword & Description???

I want to add Same Keywords & Description to all images belonging to one category. (That would be easy I guess)

Can this be done by running some My SQL query ??
Or any other way you would suggest.

Chit Chat / Requesting Review
« on: April 11, 2006, 02:29:51 PM »
Hi Everyone

Introducing yet another “Desktop Wallpapers” site based on 4Images.
I have installed quite a few Mods present here. I haven’t made so many changes with the default layout. But still it’s working for me.
I don’t know much about html & php so basically what ever I have done is based on hit & try.
So it’s a small effort of mine in world of WWW  :D

Here is the URL (Just a month old)

Using this forum I will like to thank everyone how helped me. Especially
IcEcReaM , Maxpaul ,  Mawenzi ,  TheOracle
How can I forget V@no, who helped me more than anyone. Thanks V@no, I wouldn't be able to do this without U.

I m finally getting the sense that I am almost done with my site. (Until I get next semester break)
So I will like to hear what you think about my site.

Your comments & suggestions are more than welcome.  :)

Discussion & Troubleshooting / Need help doing two things
« on: March 29, 2006, 02:54:30 AM »

I want to do two things if possible.

1) Can I rename “thumbnails” directory to something like “small”??

2) I want to place a welcome note for registered users.
 Like Welcome XXX  (do this ….etc )
 So how can I get the name of user in home.html?   

I want to put this not above "Categories"

Discussion & Troubleshooting / Popup when downloading image
« on: March 23, 2006, 03:40:27 AM »
Is this possible to open a Popup when someone clicks on download buttons (both) & e-card.
The popup just need to have simple text (message to participate, vote & comment etc. etc.) 

Ideally I would like to open a pop up for guest not for members.

I don’t have a good looking code for a popup as well.  So I need that too  :)

Chit Chat / Trouble using Forum
« on: March 21, 2006, 08:55:38 AM »
I m having a little problem with the board.

I am using IE 7 beta from the past 3/4 months and it was working just fine.
But from the past 2 day, as soon as I log-in and what to post something, the page starts reloading again & again.

I can’t browse, can’t post anything and can't use Inbox after that.  Have no trouble using Firefox.

Is there anything changed in past 2/3 days or my browser has just gone crazy.

Chit Chat / Is this a Hack Attempt ??
« on: March 17, 2006, 04:03:27 PM »
I am not very found or seeing error logs of my site. Normally there r just 404 error messages.
But by chance I just looked at them and I am surprised to see a security error message.
The entire log is full of something like this

Code: [Select]
[Thu Mar 16 21:36:23 2006] [error] [client] mod_security: Warning. Pattern match "([0-9a-zA-Z]+[-._+&])*[0-9a-zA-Z]+@([-0-9a-zA-Z]+[.])+[a-zA-Z]{2,6}" at POST_PAYLOAD [hostname ""] [uri "/contact.php"]
[Fri Mar 17 02:10:28 2006] [error] [client] mod_security: Warning. Pattern match "([0-9a-zA-Z]+[-._+&])*[0-9a-zA-Z]+@([-0-9a-zA-Z]+[.])+[a-zA-Z]{2,6}" at POST_PAYLOAD [hostname ""] [uri "/register.php"]
[Tue Mar 14 22:52:27 2006] [error] [client] mod_security: Warning. Pattern match "([0-9a-zA-Z]+[-._+&])*[0-9a-zA-Z]+@([-0-9a-zA-Z]+[.])+[a-zA-Z]{2,6}" at POST_PAYLOAD [hostname ""] [uri "/postcard.img17.htm"]
[Tue Mar 14 11:19:37 2006] [error] [client] mod_security: Warning. Pattern match "([0-9a-zA-Z]+[-._+&])*[0-9a-zA-Z]+@([-0-9a-zA-Z]+[.])+[a-zA-Z]{2,6}" at POST_PAYLOAD [hostname ""] [uri "/admin/settings.php"]

Most of the time it is with Register.php

Then someone is looking for a file " displayimage.php " which doesnt exist and it never was.

So I am just curious to know what is this mod_security and what is happening with my site ?  :? :?
