Well, here's one place where it's implemented.  This particular is calling up the last 12 uploads from the Gallery.

Looking very nice Ron. Congrats on a nice mod! Really cool way of adding a slice of your gallery to the frontpage of a website to lure visitors to the pictures :P

Alrighty, here are the files.  Drop them into your gallery root and put this in your anycontent*.php

Code: [Select]
starttable($CONFIG['picture_table_width'], 'Random scroll from our gallery.');
?>
<tr>
    <td class="tableb" >
            <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="600" height="190" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0">
                <param name="menu" value="false">
                <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000">
                <param name="movie" value="main.swf" />
                <param name="play" value="true" />
                <param name="loop" value="false" />
                <param name="quality" value="high" />
                <embed src="main.swf" width="600" height="190" loop="false" quality="high" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" swliveconnect="true">
                </embed>
            </object>
    </td>
</tr>
<?php endtable(); ?>
<br  />

That's it.  The way it's configured, it will grab 13 thumbnails at random and load into the flash file. It will not show private album thumbnails. The height and width of the flash code is crucial as skewing will occur if modified. I left the background black (I think it looks better), but you can add a transparent parameter to the flash code to comply with your particular theme.  Any questions, fire away.

Enjoy!

edit - it'd be real nice if I added the files :)

Works great.

There's only a little problem:

This anycontent is much smaller than my others. Is it possible to have the filmstrip wider and maybe with 20 thumbs?

Thanks a lot!

P.S.: In Firefox ok!

20 thumbs?!  I think you mean just enough so we can use 'picture_table_width'?  Let me play around with the code. Sheesh, some people are never satisfied.......................kidding. Give me some time. I think it looks pretty good, hama [thumbs up!].

Does this flash have a border?  On my site, I use this in an iframe on my homepage. It displays great in firefox, which respects the class and styles I give the iframe, but IE does not.  There is a very thick white border around the flash show, which I just cannot remove, and I think I've tried everything I can.

Excellent mod  ;)
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: rphMedia on December 08, 2004, 11:40:47 pm
Actually Casper, I can't believe that the flash file looks that good squeezed down like that.  As I stated earlier, if you change any of the dimensions, then....well, unexpected results occur.  The simple solution to your problem is to set the background of the iFrame/flash code  to the color of your site background.  Probably somewhere in your css. Or I can modify the file to a width of 440, no problemo.

hama, for your question, tis the nature of the beast.  You need to design your site to the smallest target audience, if that's what you are concerned with.  If you're concerned about users w/800x600 res, then that's what you strive for.  Nothing should be more than 600 width and 800 height; barring scroll bars.  There's so many variables.  Your original request was for more than a 600 width.  This will create a horizontal scroll for your 800x600 users.  Just keep that in mind. Let me know what you guys want....:)
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: Casper on December 08, 2004, 11:56:30 pm
No, it's not due to the size.  The iframe is only 440 wide, to fit the page, but the anycontent is the full width, so the iframe is only showing the left 440 of the anycontent.

I've tried everything with the css, and it works in firefox, where the background colour is what I want, but IE just ignores everything, including putting the background colour directly in the iframe code.

That's why I asked about the flash file having its own border.  I know nothing about flash, but I know other iframes I use have no such inner border, see the shoutbox as an example.
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: rphMedia on December 09, 2004, 12:13:37 am
Well, what is this class="tableflash" you have?  Probably has something to do with that, but I can't see that obviously.

It's a parameter/dimension problem.  As you can see on my site (in IE as well) and to answer your original question, no, there's no border whatsover w/ the flash file itself.  No border at this site either (http://www.creatingslideshows.com/plusxs/portal.php) and it too is in an iFrame.

You had an unexpected pixel border with the last mod too, not enabling it to be centered.  Look into that "tableflash" class and see if you can manipulate that a bit.  Nice idea by the way, to make it smaller width; didn't catch that.  

Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: Casper on December 09, 2004, 12:53:28 am
The 'tableflash' was one of my attempts to use the css to cure the problem.  Notice on the site you link to the iframe is bigger than the slide show.  I agree they have managed to have the correct background colour.

But look at this on my site, http://www.hsocuk.com/index2.html where I have removed everything except the iframe with the slideshow.

I have made the iframe the same size as the slideshow, 600 x 190, but there is still the border, and the slideshow falls of the bottom.

Please note, this I know is a problem with the iframe, not your slideshow, but it's bloody frustrating.

I also noted that the border is there in firefox, but because it's the correct colour, you only notice it when the bottom filmstrip is cut short.

Post by: Casper on December 09, 2004, 01:25:39 am
I think I'm going to have to live with the iframe problem, so I'm going to ask a big favour  ;)

could you do one for me 400 wide x 140 high please.
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: rphMedia on December 09, 2004, 01:51:57 am
Nah, I don't buy it   ;D  This CAN be fixed, but yes, I will make a 400 wide show for you, along with hama's wider show.  Give me a day or so.  Something is telling the iFrame to have that border.  I'll be back.....

The sprocket graphics, to me, look a bit dated.  Like things looked everywhere shortly after Alien Skins 1.0 came out.  How about a cleaner flatter look? Or a true photorealistic look?  Would you consider a contribution ?

Would you be able to create a navigation system in FLASH using CPG database ?

Popup : on the left : thumbs, on the right, the called picture ... people don't know
the url of the pics ('cause inside flash) ...

Easer said than done, Rodinou.  I'm thinking that the CPG folks really don't want to tackle that one.  I believe they're kinda busy with 1.4.  Would I be able to?  Don't think so.  The integration would be massive.  The one thing that I did want to do was replace / make optional a Flash slideshow at displayimage, but this too is a feat.  When I have a bit more time, I'll eventually figure it out, but time is of the essence here. I do think that using Flash as the images display is an advantage for many reasons (ie, the images are protected and can't be easily pilfered), but there are a few disadvantages too.  A lot of people hate Flash for some reason.  I've used it from Flash 4 and the next release proves to be a more powerful platform.  I thnk it would be great to integrate Flash a bit more in this package, but for now, maybe we'll just stick with some anycontents.  I'll be playing some more in the future  ;D

And you all are welcome!  More to come.

Here's the 715 width requested by hama, but others may want it too.  This just adds another thumbnail to the interface and grabs 3 more random images (total of 15 now).  Makes for a wider scroll that seems to comply with all the theme sets.  The only thing to change from the original files post is below -

Change anycontent*

Code: [Select]
starttable($CONFIG['picture_table_width'], 'Your text.');
to

Code: [Select]
starttable('100%', 'Your text.');
And change the width in the flash code (2 places) to 715.

Thanks Pascal.  I see what you did there, smooth move :)

If you're concerned about the memory thing, here's a recommendation for the Flash code.  Just change the parameter quality to "autolow".  This will check the user's machine for speed render first, if it's OK, then it will automatically revert to high, if it's a slower machine and can't handle it, it will adjust accordingly and there's no degradation in quality of the swf file itself as the anti-aliasing (text and internal graphics) is what affects quality in a flash movie.

Anyway, here's what I'm playing with next.  Don't quite know how I'm going to implement this, but stay tuned.  I think this "effect" is awesome.  Press F11 for a full screen.  The loader is for sound only (for dial-up users) - the flash file itself without sound is only 5K.

Oh, I thought you did that on purpose (no scroll), LOL!

If you want it to scroll, point your swf file to "main.swf", right now you're pointing it to "flashthumb.swf".

main.swf loads the flashthumb.swf for the scroll effect.

i All, and in fact rphMedia,

  RPH, Ron, All your Flash MOD are very strongs, and i love to insert our Mods in my Gallery.
But ( excuse me ) each time there's something i did nt like. For exemple, your 100% Kickass Flash FilmStripe (this Topix) is totally perfect but a little detail stop my joice : the borber, who's the defaut Coppermine FilmStripe.

  The best solution for all of us, if possible of course, is when you send us your terrific CPG Mod/Hack, can you also send to us the .FLA Flash MX flie ?
Then your perfects contribution will be more perfect each time.
Then all of us can adapt it with no bad small detail !  ;)
Thanx a lot and again many congratulations.

Towards the bottom.


And thanks Casper, I'm sure I can put those graphics to use in future mods!

And Pascal, I don't think I'm going to continue giving away the fla files unless there's a dire need.  I will modify any of these files upon request, I think that you can tell that by now :) You received one of my first fla's and I have no idea what you did with it.  I'm not hoarding the code, it's pretty advanced stuff for someone that doesn't deal with the software every day.....No, I'm not an expert, but I can get around :)  Conversely, I wouldn't have time to provide support for each and every one.  I hope you understand.  I'm available and online more than most.  It's easier for someone to say, "hey, can you change the color to this, or change the dimension to that" rather than a user trying to do it themselves and somewhere along the line, mucking it up; then we'd have to start over anyway.  Again, I hope you understand in my english, I will help in any way I can.

More to come, I'm still playin'.

Just an update - if you want the transparent background in non-IE browsers for any of the flash stuff (in keeping with your theme background), just add this to the <embed> tag -

Code: [Select]
wmode="transparent"
along with the IE param  in the <object> tag -

Code: [Select]
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">

Didn't think Firefox would comply originally, but it works great.

I think this was the first bit of flash that I have included on my site. ;) That's how much I like your mod. Great job, rphMedia! (http://tu2.net/forums/images/smiles/icon_thumbs_up.gif)

For some reason, there are a lot of blanks where there should be pictures. I didn't have this issue when testing on my local copy. I'm wondering if it has to do with private albums. However, even when I an logged into my online gallery as admin, there are blanks. If I am a guest, there are many more blanks. Photos from private albums do show up occassionally in admin mode.

It's at the bottom of my gallery (http://gallery.tu2.net/).

My guess is that you have .htaccess issues.  Check your folders beneath 'albums' folder and see if this is the case.  I can parse your php file fine and get all the paths, but I can't input them straight in the browser (it redirects me back to your home page every time).  The Flash file is respecting the .htaccess if this in fact is the case.  If the albums are public; there really should be no reason to restrict access anyway (aside from maybe hot-link protection).  No one has had this problem yet, so I'm assuming that that's what it may be.
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: Tranz on December 22, 2004, 09:42:21 pm
Well, it's not really any "issue" since I purposely set .htaccess to prevent direct access. ;)

It makes sense that it would be .htaccess since my local system doesn't use .htaccess.

Strange how some images did show up. And it turns out it wasn't a matter of private vs public albums. It was FF vs IE. I just happened to be logged into FF and logged out of IE.

But as I was editing the .htaccess file, some images still showed up after I edited it until I cleared the cache. That would explain why I saw more photos in FF than in IE since I use FF more and thus more of the photos would exist in the cache.

Good thinking, rphMedia. :) The scroller now works without blanks.

Why isn't the flash file given access? It's running off my subdomain just like the rest of the files.
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: rphMedia on December 22, 2004, 09:58:27 pm
Yay, it looks good!!  Call me Ron, BTW.

Flash has come a long way with regards to security and, all in all, it's a good thing.  It used to be that you could easily "hot-link" to other servers and render swf files -- no more.  [It] respects where it's coming from and adheres to that standard now.  I have many tricks that will only play a flash file on a respective server only (prevents pilfering a bit).  Just the nature of security issues in general.  The swf was merely trying to access the directory like any user would and was refused.  There could be an "include" statement from CPG that would let the swf file do that (not an expert there), but hey, it's working now.  A few years ago, it would've done that easily.

Anyway, I'm so glad you got it working.  I sorta thought that this would've been a long, drawn-out ordeal.  Solved.

You've seen nothin' yet  :)  More to come.  
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: Tranz on December 22, 2004, 11:14:35 pm
Thank you, Ron. :)

I implemented the 715 wide version of the scroller. I thought I was going nuts because there was a huge gap between the strips presentation... It would show 5 pictures, show blankness for equivalent of 5 pictures and then the pictures again. I thought I had seen it scroll continuously earlier.

I then viewed the gallery in IE, and the strip was continuous. I looked at your site in IE and FF and had the same effect. FF showed a break; IE was continuous.

Is it just my browser? (I have the final release FF 1.0).

PS. I don't want to be all nit-picky, and since this is a mod, you're not obligated to provide support. :)
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: rphMedia on December 22, 2004, 11:58:59 pm
Well, I just viewed your site with both browsers and didn't have a hiccup at all.  Continuous scroll with no blanks.

I think this may be a traffic / Internet congestion type thing.  Ensure that you clear your cache, as you did before.  I realize that there are limits as to what flash can do.  For example, there are times when I check my site (I currently have 3 flash files loading at once for my example showings) and once in a great while, all files don't load as they should.  This is probably a natural occurance that can't be overcome.  It may be that they're parsing all the php files at once, and one of them just quit for some reason.  I don't advocate having more than 3 flash files on a page at once; probably isn't feasible at all unless they're doing minimal work, but I wouldn't worry at all about what you think is going on.  Both browsers look nice at a clean run from here! I think you're good to go.  Let's ask a for a couple of volunteers to check and I think they'll have the same results as me with a fresh load.

Thanks for the accolades and I'm sure that it's just a isolated burp  :)

cool, you were right, it was just a hiccup. (http://tu2.net/forums/images/smiles/icon_clap.gif) I had cleared the cache earlier but I guess that wasn't enough. I had to shut down FF. I was probably at the point where it was eating up too much resources and needed a restart.

Thanks, Ron. :)

I recall why I used .htaccess to prevent direct access. It prevents people from viewing private images outside of the gallery. Of course there are ways around that, but I want to use that protection. Is it possible to get flash to work without allowing direct access?

The original php file respects the private folders now, but I see what you're saying.

I believe that if you already have the "private user(s)" established, you could put the .htaccess in those folders only.  And for future private users (if you allow that), you could copy a configured .htaccess to their folder while registering (or when they elect the privicy).

Hello Ron,

Let me start by saying how greatful I am for your contribution.  I would like to ask a favor.  Would it be possible for you to provide flashthumb.swf with no filmstrip graphic.  My gallery is very basic and the graphics just don't work with the design.  I understand you are busy and thank you for your time.  I look forward to your response.


Regards,
Bryan

Hi rphMedia,

This mod is truly amazing.  Especially the last tweak with no sprocket thingies ;)  Is there an easy way to make the movie stationary so that the images don't srcoll but do fade in and out?  If this could be combined with the no sprockets version this mod would truly be one for all occasions ;D  Anyways, thanks for your contribution and keep up the good work.

Yes.  If you don't want it to scroll, don't use the "main.swf".  Point the flash file to "flashthumb.swf".

Hello rphMedia,

This is my second request in 2 days, I guess that makes me a bother :-\\  Would it be possible to get the most recent flashthumb.swf (no borders) but vertical like the one you posted in the "teaser".  My site is vertically oriented and it would work much better.  If you do this for me you will be my hero, and I won't bother you anymore ;) BTW Happy New Year ;D

Oh, I thought you did that on purpose (no scroll), LOL!

If you want it to scroll, point your swf file to "main.swf", right now you're pointing it to "flashthumb.swf".

main.swf loads the flashthumb.swf for the scroll effect.


starttable($CONFIG['picture_table_width'], 'Random scroll from our gallery.');
?>
<tr>
    <td class="tableb" >
            <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="600" height="190" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0">

    </td>

keep main.swf   or   change:   main.swf    to    flashthumb.swf
show the same results, there is no scroll !!!

Bryan, I think that this would be beyond the scope of the mod as the php file is relying on the CPG structure.  Why would you want to move it off the root?  Just curious.

You could leave everything in the root, then simply point to the flash file(s) from anywhere, but to move the subject files off the root would take some major modifications.

Hi rphMedia,

Sorry if my post was misleading, all I want to do is place the image scroller on my hompage as a preview of my gallery.  I have tried "pointing"to the .swf but I have not been able to get it working.  Also, I am not using main.swf, only thumbvert.swf.  I tried to use creatingslideshows.com as an example for my code (flash/main.swf) but no luck. I am completely new to flash  ???

Thanks,
Bryan
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: rphMedia on January 04, 2005, 04:44:43 pm
Well, this would be so much easier if I had a link.  Your original link you provided via PM no longer works...well, it works, but now I'm "forbidden".

Anyway, let's say that your flash file and php file are at

www.yourdomain.com/copper/thumbvert.swf
www.yourdomain.com/copper/flashthumb.php

And let's also say that you want to put the scroller at

www.yourdomain.com/

For the flash code, all you have to do is find the two places where the flash files get referenced.

<param name="movie" value="copper/thumbvert.swf">

AND for the embed tag

<embed src="copper/thumbvert.swf" ...

Easy stuff.  Try to not make it so hard :)

I can execute the thumbvert.swf from your site, so you're almost there.

Ok if I call you Ron?  Sorry for not providing the links, here they are :

http://www.litehiker.com/copper/index.htm ( inside root works fine)

http://www.litehiker.com/test.htm (outside root, does not work)

As you can see I have pointed the file to copper/thumbvert.swf just like you said (this is the way I have had it from the beginning) but it just doesn't want to work.  I felt like I was going crazy..  It just doesn't make sense.

Post by: rphMedia on January 04, 2005, 06:31:13 pm
OK, then here's the next deal. I have it working here -

*removed old link

probably not the look you're going for, but it's a start.  View the source and implement that to your site.  The Flash ActiveX is probably performing as designed, in other words, it's for security.  But, the iFrame is safe as the flash is still being scripted at the original site. Play around with that code and let me know if you have any questions.
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: litup on January 04, 2005, 06:35:27 pm
Hey Ron,

That works fine, check it out:

I've never used Iframes, any compatibility issues I should be aware of?
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: rphMedia on January 04, 2005, 06:41:11 pm
Not that I'm aware of.  I know that search engines/bots hate frames, but other than that, it's just another holder for different items.  I'm sure you can take it from here.  You can put that iFrame whereever you want; even make it transarent, but that's another tutor course :)

It appears to be a permissions problem.  If you don't have any "public" images, the original script won't work. In other words, all of your images are in private albums, correct? And if this is true, how are you going to show random images? I guess you could try logging in to see if it works, not really sure about that though (or the error above).
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: kegobeer on March 03, 2005, 05:02:42 pm
Don't require init.inc.php in your anycontent.php file.  init.inc.php has already been included, so by doing a require statement you are attempting to redeclare functions which results in your error message.  Remove your require line and you should be ok.
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip

Ooo, didn't catch that....but there's still issues with the flashthumb.php file.  It's not picking up any images, just so you know.  You need to make one or more albums public.

to meet internationalization I suggest change the line
Code: [Select]
starttable($CONFIG['picture_table_width'], 'Random scroll from our gallery.');

with
Code: [Select]
starttable($CONFIG['picture_table_width'], $lang_meta_album_names['random']);

so you can keep the filmstrip title from the translated "random" album name

I removed the other thread where you requested the very same thing - do not cross-post in the future. One reason for your request not being answered may be: nobody has got the fla file anymore, or nobody is willing to give it away. It is more likely that the owner of the fla file will read this thread than any other thread you start, so if there's no answer, you probably simply can't have it. I guess there are good reasons why the fla file hasn't been published in the first place.

OK, I'm back.  GauGau is right.  I don't want to give away the fla files for a few reasons, one being, I don't have the time to "support" the internals of what's going on.  It's actually two fla's for this particular mod.  I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but if you know Flash well enough, you could really create these yourselves.  If you don't, then we get back to you needing help with them, and I'm really sorry; just don't have the time lately.  The way I learned (besides knowing a bit of flash itself) was by trial and error, manipulating the php files and getting the xml parse output.  Not that hard if you spend some time with it.

The "nuke" part.  Don't have a clue.  I couldn't even begin to start to know what that structure is like, sorry.  You may be able to point to a folder or folders, but that's as far as I'll reach for that  :)

I will be in and out if there are any questions with the generalities of the mod.

Post by: rphMedia on May 02, 2005, 09:01:31 pm
The rest of the gallery is distorted because the CPG starttable() function is not being called.  This is just some basic php formatting issues.  Post the exact anycontent.php code and I (we) will fix the small problem.  You're almost there.

ps, you cannot call the anycontent.php file by itself 'cause it isn't referenced to CPG on a direct call  ;)  don't worry yourself with that.

What did you expect: you code is improperly nested: the opening/closing command for PHP are wrong. Change it to
Code: [Select]
<?php

Remember that all PHP code has to reside within <?php and ?>. If it doesn't, it's not treated as PHP code, but plain HTML output (and this is exactly what happened on your page).

i tried to insert the code , but the swf isnt shown. i changed the links in the code correctly , but i think it has sth. to do with the flashthumb.php file ..

anyone got an idea how i can open the swf from another domain via a html file ?

You add this MOD inside an IFRAME like me.

I think I have been caught on the wrong foot here (the IT foot, that is).
please enlighten me.... thanks for the patience. I cannot wait to see those scrolls...what a wonderful mod...
the one in config i did as described before... just in case i messed up there, however, this is what I did in anycontent
starttable("100%", "Welcome");

starttable($CONFIG['picture_table_width'], 'Random scroll from our gallery.');

I saw a downloard attachment in this topic for films strip but when I clicked on it, I go to a page to log in as if I am not able to download the attachment. I am logged in each time as well when I try. Could anyone put the attachment up again for the filmstrip?

This is the message I get when I click on the attachment:


 
"It seems that you are not allowed to download or view attachments on this board.

and this is from a login page that I am re-directed to whenever I click the the attachment from this thread. Each time I am already logged in. I would certainly appreciate it if you would just email the filmstrip to me. The flash that will show the filmstrip arond the pictures while scrolling. My email is factual at gmail.com. If you would like to see the way it looks now, you can go to http://urban-love.com/albums. Thanks.

Here's another version of the scrolling (or non-scrolling) images.  Had a request for a 'vertical' scroll.  The flash files are 150X400.  It'll be tricky to implement in anycontent manipulating the tables, but it can be done.  You can see what can be done here -

http://s92220213.onlinehome.us/newgallery/flash.htm

Just view the source to figure out what file does what ('mainxxx' pulls and scrolls - the files without 'main' are static).  The php file respects private albums.  Works in FF & IE.

Enjoy!

First off, stellar effort with this! Very Nice. I have but a small matter i am unsure of. While scrolling the images the flash movie has the noticable appearance of a minor water affect or slight wobbly motion while moving. Is there a measurement i need to change or some other setting to correct in order to have it scroll smoothly as i seen most all those posted here to perform?

Also as to do with the vertical scroll is there some example anycontent.php available to go with the package attached to test the surface layout?

Thanks

For the ones asking for the flash without the graphics, refer to reply #52.  I would suggest that you read through all the threads anyway; there are recommendations/tidbits along the way (to prevent further questions).

MIRROR, the width and height must be exact or distortion will occur.  This too was mentioned a couple of times in the threads  ;)
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: SlasT on December 05, 2005, 08:53:42 am
I have found the attached file flashthumb.zip in #52. Yes there is not present tile.gif but in a place of this figure there is an invisible border in its height. I.e. if height flashthumb.swf = 190 pixels the height of photos will be somewhere 120 pixels. And it would be would be desirable that they are equal.

Variant 1 this that, that was primary.

It appears that you figured out a way for the background color change.  There are other ways, but that works.  Make sure you put it in the <embed> tag as well (for other browsers).  That code would be "bgcolor=#ffccff"

It would probably look better without the filmstrip graphic - there's a post (I think 52) that doesn't have the black graphic.

All is true, in a post 52 there are no black graphic, but it is an example of a variant 2 my previous posts (there is an empty place instead of graphic). And the variant 3 (borders flash on borders of a photo) is necessary to me.

well, i think the moving strip (that is currentlly black) is just so cool.
i wonder if i can adjust the color of the strip?
i have all tools to do that, just would not know where to apply those changes.
thks for the advice with the tags... my wonderful work with code has just messed up both my sites...

Title: No images
Post by: Blueiris on December 27, 2005, 07:09:20 pm
I'm testing the image scroller based on the html files posted previously in this thread by Ron and PYAP. The flash files load fine, and the filmstrip obviously scrolls, but no images are showing up.

I have flashthumb.php, flashthumb.swf, main.swf, and the html file all in the Coppermine root. Since this is being tested in my local Coppermine install, there are no .htaccess files to contend with. The object and embed tags in the html file call "main.swf," since it is in the same directory as the html file. All of the user albums are publicly viewable.

I have tried opening main.swf directly in the flash player, and get the same result - no images. I design in Flash and LiveMotion, and I've never had trouble testing a file on my local machine, so I'm at a loss.

I feel I'm missing something here, but what? Can someone help kickstart my brain?

Edit: this install is cpg1.4.2  bridged to phpBB2.0.18 with the most recent bridge files.

Another edit: Have since tested this on the server, and no images show up there, either.

Arrrgghhh! Edit: It's the bridge. Disabled bridging and everything worked fine. Anyone know why the bridging causes the scroller to be unable to pull the images? Must have the bridge - really want to use the scroller - how to make this work???
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: rphMedia on December 27, 2005, 10:06:15 pm
There must be a difference in the folder structure where the images are stored.  I have no idea, but maybe someone else will.  There are a couple other scripts that use actual links to image folders - you may want to try those (instead of the database).

http://www.saddlebredworld.com/

and at the top of the Saddlebred World Forum here:

http://www.saddlebredworld.com/Forums/index.php

This will be a wonderful promotional tool for the site, since I can let users put the Image Scroller on their sites to advertise the gallery!

A hint for FireFox users - FF almost drove me nuts in the final hours of getting this up. In FF, only one panel of images would scroll past, then a blank space where the next panel should have followed. Ran fine in IE and NS. It was a player problem, apparently. Upgrading FF to Flash Player 8 fixed.

The article, Embedding Flash While Supporting Standards (http://www.alistapart.com/articles/flashsatay/), showed how to make the scroller code validate in CPG 1.4.

The following replaces the object block (which included <embed>, which prevented validation)
Code: [Select]
            <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="main.swf" width="715" height="190" >
                <param name="menu" value="false" />
                <param name="movie" value="main.swf" />
                <param name="play" value="true" />
                <param name="loop" value="false" />
                <param name="quality" value="high" />
The random scroller requires Flash to work.

Show please your code from page of a forum.
http://www.saddlebredworld.com/Forums/index.php
And what source code was used?
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: Blueiris on December 31, 2005, 07:57:30 pm
The code on the forum page is a simple iframe that resides in a td tag in phpBB's overallheader.tpl for that themel, like this:

Quote
<tr>
   
   
   <!--Start Gallery Filmstrip-->
   

   <td width="150"><img src="templates/ChristmasOne/images/spacer.gif" alt="" width="150" height="10" border="0"></td>
   <td align="center" width="100%" valign="middle">
   
   <iframe src="http://saddlebredworld.com/Gallery/120.html" name="Scroller" id="Scroller" width="600" height="120" align="top" scrolling="no" frameborder="0"></iframe></td>
      </tr>
   
   
   <!--End Gallery Filmstrip-->
   </td>
   </tr>

To made the frame, I simply put this in the .css file for the template:

Quote
#Scroller {
      border: 5px double #0B6900;
   }


"120.html" is a plain jane html file:

Quote
<html>

<head>
<title></title>
</head>

<body bgcolor="#04111F" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" rightmargin="0" bottommargin="0" marginwidth="0" scroll="no">

<table width="600" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="left">
    <tr>
      <td width="600" align="center"><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=5,0,0,0" width="600" height="120" align="middle" vspace="0" hspace="0">
                  <param name=movie value="main2.swf">
                  <param name=menu value="false">
                  <param name="BGCOLOR" value="04111F">
                  <embed src="main2.swf" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="120" align="middle" vspace="0" hspace="0" menu="false" bgcolor="04111F"></td>
     
    </tr>
  </table>
 
</body></html>

"120.html" resides in my Coppermine root directory along with flashthumb.swf, main2.swf, and flashthumb.php. Please note that main2.swf mods the mod. I wanted the Image Scroller to be 120 px high rather than the standard 190 for this particular page. Since I work in Flash, I simply reconstructed main.swf to the narrower height.  If it's the narrower height that interests you, I can zip and attach main2.swf, but only if Ron gives the OK to do that. It's his mod, after all!

Since Ron gave the OK, I've attached a zip with main2.swf to display the Image Scroller at 120 px. high. This should be used with the version of flashthumbs.swf that does NOT have the filmstrip graphic.
Title: Image Scroller - CPU usage high
Post by: sbpoole on January 02, 2006, 06:27:17 pm
I applied the image scroller into the anycontent file.  Works great and I love it, but I noticed that in the task manager-processes, that firefox was using anywhere from 25-50% of the cpu usage even when the page loading is done.  Without anycontent enabled, the cpu usage drops to 0% when page has finished loading.  Image scroller also seems to slow performance time when you click on a page or thumbnail.  Any idea why the cpu usage is so high with image scroller loaded? I use cpg1.4.2 and copied and pasted only the code for the image scroller into it.  That is all the anycontent page has in it.

Thanks.

That's to be expected, depending on the size of your processor and memory. The Flash player is client side - in other words, it runs on your computer, not on the server. Scrolling the images and/or fading the thumbs in and out  makes the processor work.

A good illustration is this site: http://www.marisaonline.org. There's a simple Flash file running on that site that just fades from one image to another. Watch the processor performance while that file runs. After the image fades in, the CPU usage goes right down to between 0 and 7%. When the images change, the usage jumps to over 40% during the change on my machine.
Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: rphMedia on January 04, 2006, 11:36:23 am
Blueris is correct, and conversely, just launch a fairly large program (like MS Word or PhotoShop) and watch the processor indicator tick away.  This is normal stuff.  It's not really hogging all of the resources, just needs some processor power to work.

You can't, unless you have enough skill with FlashMX to construct a file similar to the Image Scroller and add the Actionscript and PHP necessary to add the links. I can't speak for Ron, who developed the Image Scroller, and I don't know whether this is a feature he's thinking of adding to future versions.

Are you using the Image Scroller on or off site? I ask because I have it running on some of my other sites to advertise a particular gallery, and I am working on a "wrapper" that will make the Image Scroller itself a link to the gallery. If that will help you, I'll post it here when it's done.

Hi!

I'm searching for a mod to make all thumbnails of a Album visible in
the filmstrip. Well, I'm thinking to add two arrows (one on the left
and one of the right side) to the filmstrip to switch to the
next thumbnail picture in the filmstrip.

Could anybody help me? Unfortunatelly I'm not allowed to create
a new subject. Do you think this would be possible or do you
even have got another idea?

Thanx Florian

Alrighty, here are the files.  Drop them into your gallery root and put this in your anycontent*.php

Code: [Select]
starttable($CONFIG['picture_table_width'], 'Random scroll from our gallery.');
?>
<tr>
    <td class="tableb" >
            <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="600" height="190" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0">
                <param name="menu" value="false">
                <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000">
                <param name="movie" value="main.swf" />
                <param name="play" value="true" />
                <param name="loop" value="false" />
                <param name="quality" value="high" />
                <embed src="main.swf" width="600" height="190" loop="false" quality="high" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" swliveconnect="true">
                </embed>
            </object>
    </td>
</tr>
<?php endtable(); ?>
<br  />

That's it.  The way it's configured, it will grab 13 thumbnails at random and load into the flash file. It will not show private album thumbnails. The height and width of the flash code is crucial as skewing will occur if modified. I left the background black (I think it looks better), but you can add a transparent parameter to the flash code to comply with your particular theme.  Any questions, fire away.

Enjoy!

edit - it'd be real nice if I added the files :)

random image scroller based on Filmstrip (cpg 1.4.x).

Hi

this is my simple solution that uses a anycontent.php with double visual display unit for flash files inside one table (with the famous image scroller based on Filmstrip by rphMedia ).

In attached the anycontent.php and two demonstrations files .swf (a random pic scroller and a graceful clock): just one for every visual display unit. Unzip, put all them into your gallery root and go!

If you want rename the .swf files you will change the names also inside anycontent.php 

Tested OK on hardwired theme. See a demo pic

Thats all folks

Thanks Ron and everyone here,

The Image Scroller rans smoothly on my site. I am loving it.

However, no new images loads after I have pressed the "reload" buttom on my IE. (i.e. show the same images as before, no refresh of images at random scroll).
see it.. here (http://www.dnvision.net)

I have browsed "Take Thu" gallery and it could reload random images after pressing reload button.
Is there any problem with mine?


Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: Jr. tristan on August 13, 2006, 05:01:29 am

It would be nice in this case. Thanks

If you want the scroller to be available on every page (and not just the index page), try creating a custom footer page and put the script there.

For some reason its not working for me. Im using Ti2000 theme. I put the 3 files from the zip in the root folder of my gallery not my theme and i copied the code and paste after if (!defined('IN_COPPERMINE')) die('Not in Coppermine...');

starttable("100%", "Welcome"); < i replaced everything from here with the code.

?>
<tr><td class="tableb" >
This is for any content block - just a test - Edit the file "anycontent.php" to change what is shown here

I've just found the main2.swf file from blueris and that gives the height that I need but not the width, also when I apply it the images shrink as you can see here

Title: Re: Image Scroller - based on Filmstrip
Post by: Phill Luckhurst on February 04, 2007, 07:35:41 pm
That would be great Ron,

I've got the height sorted as you can see from this page, this is using the 120pixel high scroller that blueris mas

http://www.windsurf.me.uk/indextest2.html

It would be great to have the same thing 715 pixels wide 120 high looking the same as in the above example, 2 extra images in the scroll should do it. What would be really nice would be for the scroll to start from a fully populated state as many just don't wait long enough for a space to fill.

If you haven't got time then don't worry, I'll have to look at an alternative option. But your mod is so nice, the non scrolling version is fab too.

It would be nice to see the flash code just to learn from on a no support basis.

Thanks in advance,

Phill

If i may suggest, this (having each picture to be a link as well) would be an interesting feature request. It could easily replace the "random picture" bit of the home page, and give a great dynamism. I would even love to see that as an alternative to the traditional presentation in a future release.

I've used the Image Scroller for a while now, worked like a charm.

Today, how ever, I upgraded my CPG install to 1.4.10, update went fine, but now the Image Scroller isn't working anymore.

Hi RphMedia,  This Mod works great.  I was able to resize it to fit my desire and i must say it is awesome.  I know this is an unrelated question but I would like to use this Mod outside of gallery, for wordpress.  Ive tried using the Flasthumb.swf (link to from wordpress) but all I get is the film strip,  No pictures load.  I did look into the Flashthumb.php to see if I could modify the code to work for wordpress but no luck.  PHP is greek for me, lol. 

Id really appreciate any feedback you can throw at me.

I tried this out on Wordpress.  I get the correct size, but the movie just never starts (black screen).  I tried chmodding the files for your plugin and no luck. 

If you know what the problem is, let me know.  Otherwise dont worry about it.  I know you developped the plugin for coppermine and dont want to bother you about another platform. 

Take care.

I tried this out on Wordpress.  I get the correct size, but the movie just never starts (black screen).  I tried chmodding the files for your plugin and no luck.

Okay,  I added the code provided with your plugin and added it to the header of this Wordpress Website

http://www.severeidaho.com/latest/

My Gallery is located at  http://www.severeidaho.com/gallery

and the Flash is located at http://www.severeidaho.com/gallery/main.swf

For My Header on Wordpress I provided the following

Quote
<td class="tableb" >
            <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="980" height="190" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0">
                <param name="menu" value="false">
                <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000">
                <param name="movie" value="http://www.severeidaho.com/gallery/main.swf" />
                <param name="play" value="true" />
                <param name="loop" value="false" />
                <param name="quality" value="high" />
                <embed src="http://www.severeidaho.com/gallery/main.swf" width="980" height="190" loop="false" quality="high" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" swliveconnect="true">
                </embed>
            </object>
    </td>
</tr>

My Gallery Directory is "Gallery" and Wordpress is "Latest".  Hopefully any of this info could help.

It's probably not working for security reasons. I could rectify all that, but it would take some major re-engineering of the original files.

How about something like this -

It's still in the beta stage. Go to my teaser thread (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=44042.msg209409#msg209409) and respond there. And please, don't expect miracles overnight :)  Just a bit busy lately.

Maybe a future release of this mod could be functional for websites outside of gallery.  Would be awesome cause this Mod rocks on Gallery.  Love everything about it.  Thanks for looking into my issue.  I'll play around with everything to see if I can get it to work, I'll let you know what happens.

Hey Severeidaho,

Maybe you can play with an IFRAME HTML's tag to view this FLASH everywhere you want ! !

Hello Ron

please give me a little place in the row of your fans. Thanks for that Mod - it's like an act of making lively for my website.

but now a little idea - The Mod takes a defined amount of random thumbs from the db and plays then all this thumbs again and again. - It's correct?
Maybe the picts are gonig in cache and the list to this also, but I think it's are the same thumbs at all time - no renew - you now what I mean?
Is it possible to change this behaviour to take a defined amount from db and play this for 1 minutes and then reload other random picts from db - without pressing F5 on Browser or clear the cache - as a new function of the flash. It's because my testusers are standing still in reverence in front of your mod and don't venture to klick anything. But after 2 minutes they ask me for more of this - they want to see the next ones...

Big Big Thanks
AlexL

PS: the php start tag is missing on the first code example  (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=12299.msg56099#msg56099) for the anycontent.php

Hi,
I am a newbie, where do I get these swf flash files etc. from.?  I do not have any of the necessary files to try out this filmstrip idea?
Thanks,

Since that was your first post, you probably couldn't see attachments as a guest. You should be able to see them now.

Hy,

I am as well very impressed about this nice MOD.  :)

I just have a little "problem". I use only the flashtumb and not the main.swf, that means without the scrolling effect. Is there any way to change the time when the next picture will be faded in? I saw there is a parameter in the php-file, but this seems to affect only the first picture and not the other one.

And a second question: There was a mod with 715px - but this I found only with the filmstrip-graphic. Is there a version with 715px and without the filmstrip-graphics available ?

Thanx,
Ingo

There's 2 parameters in the php file. One's for fade duration and the other is for the time until the next image (probably the one you're looking for).

Thanks for this Mod.
I finally got it working. www.uilen.eu (http://www.uilen.eu)
It was easy when you know how and you don't have to adjust the phpbb code. ;)
