Hello from Poland
I am a new user of your gallery and I managed to bridge it to my forum, I have created a testing forum for playing around. The link of the testing forum is here and I can provide the acp login for further help if anyone wished to.www.szopentestowe.cba.pl
This is a copy of the board for the HONDA CX500 users in Poland. People have asked me for a long time to include a gallery because some of them are just elders and they find it difficult to add pictures with third-party sites through IMG insert option, and not only that we want to benefit from having our own independent gallery.
Unfortunately, they are even more unlucky than it seems I guess because they somehow ended up with an unskilled administrator in my own flesh
All in all, I really want to do something for them and the whole situation led me here.
So... I have successfuly managed to bridge your gallery with the testing site, created a menu button for it and I am also preparing a customized style now so it will match the looks of the main forum. Anyway, I would like to have 2 or 3 things sorted out, I have been lurking all the morning now and it seems the things that take you 5 minutes, take me 3 days or are just impossible to perform - I am not a programmer anyway, just a regular and user. ouch
For one, I would like to have random pictures displayed on the forum - this I understand I must do with the CPMfetch mod... I am working to add a new bottom bar on the forum to include the CPMfetch mod code so with this perhaps I will cope finally... but...
Is it possible, for my users, to be able to add pictures into the forum fast through some bbc script/button?? I think, apart from memeber list bridge - it would be the next, most logical and desired function of bridging which the coppermine lacks.
I mean, being logged as a user and having your own album created in the gallery, the bbc button that would give you a chance to choose a file from the "start a new topic page" that would just get saved in your album while being given a ready code to insert without even opening the gallery??? That would work in the same way as adding an attachment?
Or I just thought if I could do it in such a way... I mean.. to create separate albums for each of the forum category (trips/meetings/technical) and when writing a post in let's say a technical catagory, pictures would automatically be added to the album assigned for the given category and not anywhere else? This would give me an option to disable user albums - they not that necessary anyway because all we need is a forum support gallery.
The problem now is, if I tell people now that we do have a gallery, but... first go there, add your pictures to the albums, then insert the links through the IMG again... - they will be disappointed. After all, they want to have it easy.... at least some of them.
This is I would the first part I would like to have clarified....
thank you and sorry for any trouble.
