Title: [cpg1.4x]:Link Append
Post by: brentmags on May 16, 2010, 08:38:14 am
hi i have version 1.2 running purposefully on my gallery and doing the job that is required subject to a large header at the top etc. Website:http://wrenegadeevents.com/universal%20photo%20gallery/index.php (http://wrenegadeevents.com/universal%20photo%20gallery/index.php)

what i have discovered in a round about fashion was when adding either a 'new album' or 'category' this can only be done when after having uninstalled the plugin, reinstalling it when you are satisfied with the additions.

subject to the various 'user rights' one makes available, unless you have administrator rights others cannot create albums. I am not a coder and although i am happy with the status quo there is an opportunity to add some code so that different users can create albums etc

feel free to test it out  ;D

my bad GauGau...been having a few PC problems today concerning my gallery which is undergoing a "total" rebuild - has not been a 'go forward day'. That said i will reinstall all the plugins inclusive of the 'Link Append' and repost once up and running again.

if someone could be so kind or when the opportunity arises 'Link Append' after having reinstalling cpg...not wanting to make the same mistake twice still has me scratching my head.

i have changed the priority of the plugins to no avail and still find that the best solution for adding new albums/categories is to uninstall 'Link Append', add the albums/categories before reinstalling again. This means that only those with Admin rights can do this rendering users unable to have albums unless they are predone for them using their sign on details etc

can upload pics, URI's and YouTube (tRial album incidently) but can't create new albums etc where user has full
permissions to do so by Group settings

I have no idea what you're talking about.
You might (for a start) post a link to the announcement thread of the plugin that you're refering to and that you're having issues with.

You appear to have edited coppermine's core code to accomplish your layout (that makes me go colorblind by the way) - the output around the "New" button on the album manager page for example looks like this:
Code: [Select]
<td align="center" style="background-color: #D4D0C8; width: 80px; height: 21px; border-top: 1px solid White; border-left: 1px solid White; border-right: 1px solid #808080; border-bottom: 1px solid #808080;"><a href="javascript:Album_Create();" style="color: Black; font-weight: bold;">New</a></td>Additionally, when looking at the status bar of the browser I can see that some piece of JavaScript that you deliberately have added cripples the link by trying to append reference to an anchor that is JavaScript-driven. Subsequently, the resulting generated output is
Code: [Select]
                                       <td style="background-color: rgb(212, 208, 200); width: 80px; height: 21px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; border-color: White rgb(128, 128, 128) rgb(128, 128, 128) White;" align="center"><a href="javascript:Album_Create();#cpg_top" style="color: Black; font-weight: bold;">New</a>
                                        </td>
, which is even more silly. As a result, you can of course not create new albums. Turn all the silly stuff off. Upload a plain theme and try with that.

P.S. I'm having a hard time to understand your English. Did you create your posting using an online translator or a similar tool? And is your name actually "Brent"?

Brent it is...and thanks for the reply Joachim - it seems i have some more work to do where the learning curve with cpg is stimulating to say the least
As for online english translator...just put it down to we Kiwis walk upside down (see graphic - well almost) in this neck of the woods subject to where we lie geographically. Just hope that this interpretation is more straight forward  ;D

the annoucement thread is: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=64967.new;topicseen#new (http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=64967.new;topicseen#new)

i am committed to stay with this theme for the time being for it aligns with the rest of my site which means i live with the limitations. That said i have copies of the 'virgin cpg files' for which i will go through the process again "minus" the silly stuff.

i thank you for highlighting my enthusiastic 'bungle'
