thanks for that clarification. It really helped me as well.

hmmmmmmm...that is pretty common today being able to change your permissions. If your host is preventing you from doing that you are in for a long ride since most server side software requires you to change some of the permissions.

Also, make sure you are changing permissions for the folders and files on your server, not on your local drive.

If you want to upload an image like you are a regular member, you would go to the category you want to upload the image to. If you have the permissions set properly, once you are in the category, you should see an upload button in the upper right hand corner.

For example. if I have a category called Family Photos. I click that category and I see the upload button.

I have used cute and that is how you do it. You right click on the folder you want to change permissions for and choose properties.  More than likely you will be changing folders to 777 and files to 666 (whatever the 4images instructions says to do).

So go ahead.....get cute running. Next find the folder or file using cute on your server.  Next right click on that file or folder and change the permission per 4images instructions.

The key to adding ads to your gallery is your html templates. Learning those templates is not that difficult. Since they are html, you can place your code where you want.

For example:

home.html is your template for your galley home page. If you want ads to be placed on your home page, this is the template you may want to add your ad.

details.html is the template for the images (the larger photo after you click the thumbnail). If you want an ad to be in this area, add it to details.html

The templates are located under the template directory. For example the default templates are located at template/default

Make a backup of each html file before adding the ad just in case something does go wrong. It really isn't that difficult, it is a matter of trial and error until you get the ad in the template the way you want it to look.

My ads (adsense) are all over my gallery and they were all added in the html templates.

TygerStar I can tell you want I do. It may help.

In settings

1. I use GD
2. For uploading thumbnails I have the size set at 150 pixels for both width and height
3. It is set for auto create thumbnail

When I upload in Control Panel

1. I browse for the image
2. I leave the thumbnail field blank
3. Fill in other fields if you you want (name, description, etc)
4. Submit to upload

When I'm done uploading the image I click the auto thumbnail link on the left side under the heading Images to create the thumbnail for the image.

I hope this helps.

Hey Droggie

Not sure this will help but it it does it may be the answer. I can't remember the version of 4images I was using, but it was prior to 1.7.4. It was 1.7.x. All was working fine than one day I could not access my gallery. My host had updated php. For a reason I can't remember. the version (1.7.x) of 4images I was using would not work with the php upgrade. I had to update 4images to 1.7.4 and when I did all worked fine.

Not sure if this is the same problem you are having. Maybe someone here with more experience can provide another solution. You may want to call your host or compare your version of php with the version you are using on other hosts. If the version of 4images you are using is working on another host with the same version of php, than you probably can eliminate this as being your problem.

who is pushing -- I made a post, you asked me to edit and attach a file. I did. I found a solution elsewhere -- I posted so you wouldn't have to spend time on a solution (which I doubt you would of spent time with your shitty attitude).

You were rude from the get go with your  :evil:

It is becoming obvious why 4images is going down hill since the regulars left. Go back to your life. You are an ass.

Thanks for the quick reply

When you say complete code, I guess you mean all of functions.php. Here it is:


I edited the post and the file is attached

I made the following changes to add an email button to my site::

 Open /includes/function.php file.


    $user_name_link = "<a href=\"".$site_sess->url($user_profile_link)."\">".$user_name."</a>";

Add after:

    $user_row = get_user_info($image_row['user_id']);
    if (!empty($user_row['user_email']) && (!isset($user_row['user_showemail']) || (isset($user_row['user_showemail']) && $user_row['user_showemail'] == 1))) {
      $user_email = $user_row['user_email'];
      $user_email_save = str_replace("@", " at ", $user_row['user_email']);
      if (!empty($url_mailform)) {
        $user_mailform_link = $site_sess->url(preg_replace("/{user_id}/", $user_row['user_id'], $url_mailform));
      else {
        $user_mailform_link = $site_sess->url(ROOT_PATH."member.php?action=mailform&amp;".URL_USER_ID."=".$user_row['user_id']);
      $user_email_button = "<a href=\"".$user_mailform_link."\"><img src=\"".get_gallery_image("email.gif")."\" border=\"0\" alt=\"".$user_email_save."\" /></a>";


    "user_name_link" => $user_name_link,

Add after:

    "user_email_button" => $user_email_button,

When I use the search on the site  I get the following error:

Undefined variable: user_email_button in /home/filipina/public_html/online-dating-gallery/includes/functions.php on line 413

I'm a little lost and can't find a fix or what I did wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

No sql experts that can help??

May I ask one of the moderators a question about what is going on? I couldn't help to notice that some of the regulars that use to post here do not anymore: V@NO, Oracle, Chris, etc. I don't think Jan even  posts anymore.

Was there a shift in personnel and others have taken over?

I really miss V@no. That guy was always helping and seem to have  the answers no matter the question. What happen to him? Just curious.

Of course my biggest fear is that 4images is dying. The board is not as busy as it use to be. Are there plans upgrade 4images in the future or is it a dying breed?

Ok, back to my original SQL question. If anyone has the answer to my post above would appreciate it.

I installed the personal photo  mod....great mod but it doesn't do what I need. The mod has it's own data folder for pix and the member uploads the pix through edit profile.

My problem has to do with those who do not upload an image for the gallery (not personal profile). If I have 10 people register and out of those 10, 8 upload a photo, I was hoping there was a way to search and find the two users who did not upload a photo to the gallery.

I know with only 10 users it would be easy to eye ball who does and does not have a photo, but when you start to get into the thousands of registered users, it would be beneficial to do a search from the ACP to find those who did not upload a photo and send them an email.

I have searched for this solution for some time now and can't seem to find one and maybe never will. The key is to find members who are registered and did not upload a photo to the gallery.

If anyone knows of an sql query or mod that does this I'd be grateful. If it is an sql query, I would need  the email address in the query and I could download the results to a CSV file and input it into my mass email program to send to members who did not upload a photo after registering.
