This MOD is for creating Articles (typed text that can be News, Opinions, Articles, Blogs, etc) and Categories for them that are SEPARATE from the Image Categories.

What it does - It allows you to create Article categories to be displayed on the front page, and from there, create/write articles (or news, etc). The thumbnails of images are not used. Rather, the first piece of the Article, AKA the "snippet", is used as a thumbnail. It's stand-alone, so it does not interfere with the Image Categories and images. It does use comments that operate just like the Image comments. Editing, creation, deleting... all of it works just like the Image and regular categories.

Important - This MOD is not a full release yet. As the title of the thread says, it is a W.I.P. (Work In Progress). Feed back is needed, as I am requesting that you experts out there can look over the script(s) and see if there is any streamlining/clean-up that can be done. It IS fully functional as it currently is.

I also request that someone can make this Searchable.

WARNING!!!

This MOD modifies your database, so make a back-up first!!!

Let's get started -

I repeat: This MOD modifies your database, so make a back-up first!!!

STEP 1

Unzip the attached zip file. Upload all files to your 4images ROOT directory, maintaining the folder structure.

STEP 2

This file modifies your database, so make a back-up first!!! Once articles_install.php is uploaded to the ROOT directory, point your browser to it and run the script. Again, this file modifies your database, so make a back-up first!!!

STEP 3

Create these two folders in ROOT/data/
articles (CHMOD it to 777)
tmp_articles (CHMOD it to 777)

STEP 4

Discussion & Troubleshooting / Validation Problem
« on: May 06, 2011, 09:24:53 AM »
Ran into an interesting problem when validating User uploads- Validation changes upper case letters to lower case letters. With the Auto  Image Resize/BIG MODS, this poses a problem, as the BIG (original) file remains as is if it has upper case letters. The resized image is changed to lower case.

The prob comes in when someone goes to download the file (or view in a new window... couple of MODS for that too). The upper case BIG file is not recognized, as it is "different" than the lower case shown image on the details page.

Admin Direct upload from the category page does not have this problem, since the image doesn't go through validation.

Is there a fix for this in validation so the file name remains as is and is not changed?

Using v1.7.9 btw....

I've searched the forums for this, but either I am not using the correct search words, or it doesn't exist (yet).

Is there a MOD already for this, and if not, does anyone know how to do it? Is it possible?

I have three top, main categories:

Videos, Images and Music.

What I want to do is restrict what type of content is uploaded into EACH category.

Meaning... only AVI, MPG, MOV, MP4, Vano's GREAT external sites MOD (youtube, etc) into the Video category, restricting the uploads of images (other than thumbs, of course) and music.

Then for the images category, make it so only images can be uploaded, so no video formats or music formats.

Then do the same for the Music Category.

Each would have sub-cats too, so they'd need to inherit the parent category restrictions.

Can this be done?

Discussion & Troubleshooting / Upload error- Zip file
« on: May 27, 2005, 08:34:52 AM »
What's this code mean?

Error uploading zip file:
logo1_2.zip: Invalid file type (zip, application/force-download)

I added that application to the upload_definitions and still got that error.


$mime_type_match['zip'] = array("application/zip", "application/x-zip-compressed","application/force-download");

Mods & Plugins (Requests & Discussions) / Extra Member Page field
« on: May 25, 2005, 03:44:24 AM »
Hi all. Great scrpt. Have it running at a number of sites.

Question- Can or has someone modify/modified the Members upload page to have an addition field?

What I want is one more field to upload a ZIP or RAR file *in addition* to the current main image and thumb fields.

Then on the Details page, I want the Download button to point to that ZIP or RAR file instead of the main image.

I know you can add in a seperate URL for download in the AdminCP, but there is no way for the members to upload all three.

Thanks in advance.
