Hi at all!

I have some categories which don't have pictures itself, but they have under-categories with pictures.
I have installes this mod, but near this categories there is no pictrure displayed :-(
Is there a possibility to show an random-picture of one off their under-categories?

Greetings Nika-2000

I know this has been asked before and I'm still waiting for any answer that's why I watch all topics that fits to this question.
Would be great if someone know how to make it!

I thought about that for a while and I MIGHT have an idea to get this working, but this is a workaround. An working 4images-setup is running at http://galerie.cvjmbonn.de

The idea is to use a switch, which turns the display of the thumbs in an category off, imagine you have the following setup

1. Cars
1.1 old cars
1.2 new cars

Cars has no pictures but you want to have a random thumb from old and new next to cars catogy info.
1. step: you DO include a set of pictures in cars, from which these thumbs are generated
2. step: you switch the thumbs-display in cars OFF (which leaves you with an empty category again)

The first step is quite simple, you upload images as links to the real images, choose the thumbnail in both, img and thumbnail, no space used for that.

Second step needs adjustment of template categories.html, you put the following "brace" around the stuff that should be ignored if the switch is set

<?php $pos = strpos ("{cat_description}", "class='hc'"); if ($pos === false) {  ?>

  {paging_stats}
  ...
  {if thumbnails}
  ...
  {endif thumbnails}
  ...
  {paging}
   ...
   {category_dropdown_form}</td>
   ...

<?php }  ?>

YOU descide by this, which parts should be ignored, i skip stats, thumbs, paging and the dropdown list

Now you have to activate the switch, just add <span class='hc'></span> to the description of the category you want to clear, and you are done (hopefully you do not have an hc-css-class, if so, you have to choose another name for the switch)

Yours
John

If you intend to use PHP commands under your HTML template files, make sure to enable the PHP_CODE initial under your includes/constants.php file. ;)

Note: It is not the safest method but it could work anyway.

Ah it's working !
Many hugs to you John !!!
The only thing I don't like is that it is still counting them in {num_images} but I don't mind

I guess if you cant even do the simple code change from these modification, then yes, you'd better pay someone do it for you...

That's a very simple mod that works well for me except for one thing. I have both horizontally and vertically oriented images in my categories. Is there a way that I can get the random images both resized and correctly proportioned rather than being stretched or squeezed in one direction. Thanks

:(
When I use the sript, the image link represents the category.
So that may settle, so that image represents the image's space, as the random image.
