Itґs ok now, iґve changed the extension "zip" to ".rar" and everything itґs ok :-)
yes, it was renamed .rar file...strange...
I've changed it into zip format, hope GAGA wont mind ;)

I compressed the package with WinRAR because it's a little bit smaller than a zipped file. Unfortunately you can't upload files with rar extension. Therefore I renamed it. However, I don't mind that you changed this issue :)

thanks for sharing this fine mod.  :lol:

I want to show the FULL CATEGORIE, not only the shown pictures.

Is this possible?

Yes, of course that's possible. V@no has made a modification of this mod without creating xml files on your drive. This mod actually shows all pictures from a category. So you just have to download his package. You can get it here

Remove all slideshow code lines in categories.php except the lines which are responsible for showing the slideshow-button:
Code: [Select]
$flashshow_url = $site_sess->url(ROOT_PATH."flashshow.php?action=flashshow&".URL_CAT_ID."=".$cat_id);
$flashshow_button = "<A HREF=\"#\" onClick=\"'".$flashshow_url."','_blank','toolbar=0, location=0, directories=0, status=0, scrollbars=0, resizable=0, copyhistory=0, menuBar=0, width=640, height=480');return(false)\"><img src=\"".get_gallery_image("flashshow.gif")."\" border=\"0\" alt=\"".$lang['alt_flashshow']."\" /></a>";

  "flashshow_url" => $flashshow_url,
  "flashshow_button" => $flashshow_button

Replace the .fla and flashow.php file. At last add
Code: [Select]
$lang['slideshow'] = "Slideshow"; in main.php and you're done.

Hi wilson, the file isn't corrupted. It's just compressed by WinRaR. Try to change the file ending to rar and extract it. You should be aware of some problems with this mod. Some modifications are necessary to create an really unique xml file. This should be done with the sessionid, maybe with cookies. Furthermore there are some circumstances under which the code creates a corrupt xml file. I will check and fix this. I highly recommend to test the flash plugin with more than 1 user viewing the show and under different circumstances.

First of all, I'm pretty busy and don't have enough spare time to check all error reports. If you are looking for a demo page with this Slideshow Mod use Google. There are quite a lot of 4images pages. One of this -> I know there is some strange bug which causes problems with some kind of pictures. I will review the code as soon as possible to figure out where it is. Unfortunately this will take maybe a few weeks. For Source extrapolation download the original 1.7.1 categories.php and compare the changes in the modified file with a tool like e.g. Beyond Compare. Pretty easy to perform, ... Well, I think so.

vB is not secure, believe me, I have several clients that use it, it gets hacked as much as PHPBB.

Nothing is 100% safe. In my opinion a vBulletin Board is more secure than a phpBB board. But you are right. VB Boards were being hacked too.

SMF is really the best forum I have seen in years, set up right its much more powerful then phpBB and IVB and is as powerful as vB. Really this is great forum software, would have been happy to see the switch when phpBB went real back with security flaws.

Personally I don't know SMF Boards. I installed and tried phpBB, IPB and vBulletin. I really like the IPB because it has a really clean sourcecode and it's easy to manage and easy to grasp. phpBB isn't bad, especially cause i'ts free. But you will find the most features in a vBulletin Board. A lot of plugins and mods and thousands of settings.

SMF is also much easier to mod then IVB, VB and PHPBB.
This is a result of a lower complexety. However, it's always a matter of personal taste. :wink:

Hi mantra,

it should work properly under 4images 1.7 too. But I run it only with version 1.7.1. However, you should backup all changed files (there are only a few) before you implement it, cause it could be that some of the files have been changed since 1.7. So it's easy to switch back. Unfortunately I'm pretty busy at the moment and don't have the time to test it under 1.7. But the code segments are commented and you only have to change "categories.php". So you can do it yourself. Good luck :wink:


Nice piece of code. Thx for sharing!  :)

Here are some nice fonts for this plugin -

due to a lot of postings are gone i decided to add this mod, because i wasn't able to find it in this forum anymore. I don't know the real author. Otherwise I would give him or her the full credit. I just changed some lines of the code.

Here is a quick installation guide:

Installation (4images Version 1.7.1):

1. Replace "categories.php" (see the appendix below) in your 4images root folder.
2. Copy "slideshow3.swf", "flashshow.php" and flash_detect.js in your 4images root folder.
3. Copy "flashshow.gif" and "flashshow_off.gif" in your templates/yourtemplate/images/ - folder
4. Copy "flashshow.html" in your templates/yourtemplate/ - folder
5. Add {flashshow_button} somewhere, usually besides the upload button, in your categories.html to show the slideshow button
6. Add following lines to your main.php language file:

   //--- FLASHSHOW -------------------------------------
   //--- This lines are for the Hyperlink Description ---
   $lang['alt_flashshow']        = "Click here for a flashshow (slide show in flash) of the category";
   $lang['alt_flashshow_off']    = "Only registered and logged users have access to the slideshow.";

Appendix: If you don't want to offer the Slideshow to unregistered Users, you have to use "categories (registered users only).php". Just remove (registered users only) from the file name ;-)

Edit: Feel free to modify the "slideshow3.fla" file.

Really sad that nearly all postings since 2003 are lost forever. Strange that the backups are lost too. Didn't your webhoster 1&1 make frequently backups of your data? I don't understand why you didn't made any backups of the SQL Database for years. However, IPB isn't free anymore. Of course you can use the last free version, but you wouldn't be able to update the board. Why don't using vBulletin? I know it isn't free. But you can purchase a lifetime license with the guarantee of having always a good, powerful and secure board software with a great community.
