What I will probably do it add a text box that allows your to specify a path relative to your gallery location that leads to that particular collection. This will be for those people that used ftp to upload their collection of image, like me, or those people that already have their gallery structure setup. This shouldn't impact anybody that is currently using Gallery 2.

Hey Guys and Girls,

Last week I finished everything I planned to add to my XGallery component for Joomla which you can see on my website. Now I will turn my attention to Gallery 2 that I created a while back. I see that there are a lot of problems, and after looking through the code, I decided to do a rewrite of this module. I plan to bring over as much functionality as I can from my Joomla component to the module redesign. In the new design, you will create your own categories. This will simplify things greatly. I'm thinking to also change the way you choose collections. You will still see a form to fill out, but you will need to upload a zip file of images or a single image if you currently have a collection setup. If Protector plays nicely, I'm thinking of adding a feature to allow you to store your gallery outside of document root. The two views that I will start off will use the Shadowbox Popup effect or Gallerific for embedded view. Descriptions, hit counter will also be included on category and collections.

If there are any additional you'd like to see post a comment. I expect this to take a month or two, depending on how much of the code I will rewrite.

Thanks
Optikool

Hey Guys,

I just ran into this thread and wasn't aware that there was a virus version of this module floating around on the net.

@Peekay Generally a cracker would add an iframe to a page so that they could send information back and forth between their server and the page you are viewing. Things like passwords would be the most common info to send. The module that I maintain would not have any need for iframes so if you find one, remove it.

Later this year I'm planning to revisit this module so that I can redesign different aspects to take advantage of new ways of doing things and improve the code. If you see problems with this module let me know and I will look into it.

Also the reason why the publish date changed on the module was because I changed to the Joomla CMS and had to move things over. Sorry Xoops People but I needed to understand the MVC module better and Joomla has that module. But I plan to bring the techniques I learned from creating my XGallery component and what I learn from my Movie component, (still in Alpha, but you can see it on my website) to the Gallery 2 and X Movie modules that I maintain for Xoops. Hopefully it will be a big improvement in the end.

@sailjapan I'm thinking to add the ability to turn off automatically adding gallery collections so that you can add them manually. One of the reasons I had this feature was because on my personal websites I have over 150 collections and I don't have time, nor the patience to add these manually. I'm also going to add the ability to create categories manually for people that don't want to use the folder structure approach.

I probably wont get to it though until next month or the month after as I'm currently working on a movie component, modules and plug-ins for Joomla to go with the gallery component I'm creating and testing on my wife's site, maesworld.com.

I might also look for a way around the issue my gallery has with protector so I can do away with generating thumbnails all together. This would solve the main problem everybody seems to be having.

@bjuti It's nice that you are continuing the MyAlbum-P project though when made your latest version known, it would have been nice if the module was available to try. But it's nice to see new gallery modules becoming available because one of the main reasons why I created my module was because all I wanted was a gallery.... not a gallery with a build in social network system.

Hi,

Do you have debug mode turned on when you are trying to add categories or collections? If so turn it off. The debug info that's printed out is like garbage to json and the requests will break. The <? is not going to cause any of the problems your gallery is having as long as you accepted the default installation of Ubuntu, or your server provider did. For the categories, if they appear, the links to add them will be to the right.

The only other thing I can do is to log into your XOOPS and try to find the problem.

Hi,

I installed a XOOPS 2.4.4 in a sub folder on one of my test sites and added this module. I was not able to reproduce any of the problems you were having. Is your gallery in side the document root of your XOOPS installation or the document root of your root website? Your gallery needs to be in the document root or a sub folder of your XOOPS installation. Also if you go to your system overview, are you using PHP 5 or 4? You need version 5. I uploaded another version here to add the French Language and also fix some permission issues....

Hi,

It sounds like both you and Burning are doing the same things. I have not tested this module on a website that is in a sub folder from the document root or on a Windows server which Burning is on. I will need to test this, probably this weekend and see if I can reproduce this problem.

Hi Mazarin,

Do you have the plugin Firebug installed for Firefox? Firebug Plugin

If so can you check to see what version of jQuery you are using? Just load the page with firebug open, then click the Console tab and in the box at the bottom of the screen with the >>> type jQuery.fn.jquery and let me know what version it says. If you don't see the >>> then click on the arrow next to Console and uncheck Larger Command Line.

If it says 1.4 then go to the Net tab and check if there are any 404 requests in red and make a note of them. Then hit the clear button to clear out the requests. Next click the Add Collections button and you should start seeing some get requests going to the same generate.php file. If you hover over those requests it will show you the query string. Let me know if the query string has a bunch of undefined values. Also click on the pluss sign next to the get request for getparams.php (the first request at the top of the list) and click on the response tab. The key/value pairs should each be in double quotes. If it is now let me know which ones are not.

This module doesn't require register global. It's just there for information. It also doesn't require safe mode to be enabled.
