Can someone please help me here?
I have six categories in my 4image gallery and one of them has graphic war pictures. Consequently, I don't want that specific category along with all its sub categories to be a part of random image display.
How can I disable that?

Thank you all for your help!

its not as easy as it might looks like...
try this
in includes/functions.php find:
Code: [Select]
      srand((float)microtime() * 1000000);
      $category_id = array_rand($random_image_cache);
replace with:
Code: [Select]
      $notincat = array(1,2,3,4); //add as many categories IDs as u wish
      for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
      {
        srand((float)microtime() * 1000000);
        $category_id = array_rand($random_image_cache);
        if (!in_array($category_id, $notincat)) break;
        else $category_id = -1;
      }
Quote
      $notincat = array(1,2,3,4); //add as many categories IDs as u wish

hi v@no,

i have a category (with alot of subcategorys) too, that i want to hide from random image selection.
your solution did not work for me. still have random pics from excluded categorys

i have tryed
Code: [Select]
$notincat = array(68);and
Code: [Select]
$notincat = array(68,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25);
68 is the maincategory i want to hide and the other id's are subcategorys from it - i want to hide too.

any idea?

in includes/functions.php find:
Code: [Select]
  $cat_id_sql = get_auth_cat_sql("auth_viewcat", "NOTIN");Insert below:
Code: [Select]
  $cat_id_sql .= (($cat_id_sql) ? "," : "")."1,2,3,5,10,8";

Exclude single images
« Reply #11 on: August 03, 2005, 01:09:28 AM »
Hi,

is it possible at all to exclude single images from different categories, for example by specifying there ID's in the same way as above with the category ID's. I want to add a titel graphic as a first image in every category - with text to describe the category, but obviously don't want it to show up in the random images (since it's not an image)

Appreciate your help

I applied both variants (first suggestion, second suggestion, both together...) and random cat images are turnded on in constants.php, but categories that should not be shown in random images on mainpage still appear? I use 4images 1.7. Is there another way? Did I forget something?

includes/functions.php
Code: [Select]
  $random_image_cache = array();
  $cat_id_sql = get_auth_cat_sql("auth_viewcat", "NOTIN");
$cat_id_sql .= (($cat_id_sql) ? "," : "")."34,35,36,58,59,61";

Code: [Select]
if (SHOW_RANDOM_CAT_IMAGE) {
      $notincat = array(34,35,36,58,59,61); //add as many categories IDs as u wish
      for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
      {
        srand((float)microtime() * 1000000);
        $category_id = array_rand($random_image_cache);
        if (!in_array($category_id, $notincat)) break;
        else $category_id = -1;
      }
    }
    else {
      $category_id = 0;
    }
  }

includes/constants.php
Code: [Select]
// If you have a lot of images in your database,
// the random image function could make your programm slow.
// Try first to set "SHOW_RANDOM_CAT_IMAGE" to 0.
define('SHOW_RANDOM_IMAGE', 1);
define('SHOW_RANDOM_CAT_IMAGE', 1);

thanks
