Plugin/Hack: Albumpattern

After a lot of work, I’ve finally gotten together something that works pretty close to perfect. I call it Albumpattern, and its a photo gallery plugin for TXP. It is similiar to Gallery, or Pictoralis, or Photopattern. The plugin parts handles all the calling, the hack part adds the ability to modify the Albums and photos inside the TXP Administration section (it looks just like it’s supposed to be there!).

I’m asking people to test it out initially, I don’t expect there to be any major bugs.

Albumpattern v1.0 Testing Release 5 BETA

Example of Albumpattern

Install directions are included in the zip file. Please, please email me any bugs you find with as much information you possible on the bug.

Re: Plugin/Hack: Albumpattern

<del>One quick question. Could this be made to work on an individual page in TXP with comments enabled?</del> Nevermind, I just read your comment about comments on the project page. I’ll look forward to seeing how it works out.

Re: Plugin/Hack: Albumpattern

I’ve completed the install, but under the new album tab I only have Title and Excerpt. I’m sure there should be more options, anyone else have this problem or did I go wrong somewhere?

I like the idea of building on the barebones example, any chance of having the code for the 3 forms it uses?

Thanks
Lee

Re: Plugin/Hack: Albumpattern

This is very nice; would it be possible to add thumbnail-based navigation, with thumbs on the same page as the larger sized photo, something similar to Phototpattern or Photostack?

Re: Plugin/Hack: Albumpattern

Three forms examples

I was just thinking of thumbnail based navigation this morning, it would be easy to write up a tag that did that (grab all the images with the same albumid as the current image and having a thumbnail, create the links, output). When I get back I’ll do that.

Lee: When you first install it, it should have a Title and Excerpt box, some status buttons and some category drop downs (these are TXP image categories in case anyone is wondering) and a big, shiny red publish button. Underneath it should say “No Albums” if you haven’t created one.

Another thing I should have mentioned, the resize and thumbnail options are in the txp_album.php file, at the very top (there is some documentation with them). For right now, those are the only way to change that, but I am going to be adding an options page for Albumpattern specific options.

Re: Plugin/Hack: Albumpattern

Put something in the Title and maybe something in the Excerpt, and hit “Publish”.

I didn’t think to include a “First Album” thing, maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Re: Plugin/Hack: Albumpattern

That’s what I thought you’d say. But all I get when I do that is a blank page returned, the url is textpattern/index.php.

Has anyone else installed this?

Whoops, I know why. Open up txp_album.php, go to line #152, and change it to say “include_once $txpcfg [ ‘txpath’ ] .’/lib/classTextile.php’;” (remove the extra spacing around the brackets, and the double quotes. Do that to line #311 and #544. Or alternatively, just download this txp_album.php and rename to txp_album.php then upload.

Sorry about that, I forgot that most people arn’t going to use a different version of Textile (I don’t), and had the written the Textile include stuff so that you could use a different version if you wanted. Most of the time when you just get an empty page like that, it means something was missing.

If anyone downloads it prior to this, that bug was fixed and is in the zip file.
