It's an idea, but at the moment you can't, only with recently added pictures. Not sure how recently added albums can be useful though, since albums are almost "permanent", much like categories. What are your thoughts?

I would like to be able to put the 'last uploads' on a different page outside of the gallery directory. I think it would be a great little mod if anyone who knows php, mysql, and coppermine well...

actually there are three hacks around for this purpose, one made by zarsky, one by gtroll, one by me. All of them are not recommended, as they don't take into account the permission settings of coppermine, but if you don't have private albums at all you're encouraged to use one of them. You'll find my mod in the download section, look for cpg1.1mod_ssi.zip. Zarsky's mod is available here and gtroll's hack here

if you just need to show todays pics and you know some php/mySQL: the basic query is this one:
Code: [Select]
SELECT * from {$CONFIG['TABLE_PICTURES']} WHERE approved='YES' ORDER BY ctime DESC LIMIT 0,5;Check if they were uploaded today and you're ready to roll.

in the configuration, you know, where you add the "catlist" "alblist" "toprated" etc,
add "lastalb"

Of course, it's not going to appear as normal albums do. It will appear much like the recently added pictures and random pictures. Only one picture will be shown, with the album name and description under it. But that's good enough for me...

However, if by front page, you mean a front page OUTSIDE coppermine, then I misunderstood you, and this is probably not going to work (OK not probably... definitely :lol:  )

the config settings (as the foot note says) only applies to the size of newly created thumbs (after submitting the config changes), they won't affect your existing thumbs. You can either resize the thumbs (using "resize pictures" in admin menu) or reduce the width and height parameters of the <img>-tag in html (so the browsers reduces the size for you).

gaugau's ssi mod has been doing great for me as i don't have any private albums.

www.defencetalk.com < go there and scroll down you should see random images from the gallery along with stats, etc.

If that doesn't work for you... why not use anycontent.php file and include it on your main page? Of course, your main page extension must be .php for you to include any .php files, etc.

Hope that helps.

Gaugau, your ssi script is exactly what I need for my main welcome page.

Right now I have manually created links and thumbnails, but I am very eager to get the whole thing to work dynamically.

I have followed all the install instructions, but I am getting a couple of errors when I run the example

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? I checked in phpinfo.php, and my absolute path seems to be correct.....

If I am understanding the absolute path terminology correctly, the absolute path to ssi is:

/hotel/belmaati/WWW/gallery/ssi.php

Do I need something before the /hotel part..?

When I run phpinfo.php and look at DOCUMENT_ROOT I get this info:
/hotel/belmaati/WWW

are you really self-hosted (as the path indicates)? If yes, you should know the absolute path (or ask the person who runs your server).

No,
I am hosted by a hosting company. I talked to their support, and they believed that the absolute path is indeed hotel/belmaati/WWW. Maybe you could give me some kind of clue as to what the path might be....?

I can PM you the path to my phpinfo.php file, to show you - if you've got the time...

Thank you very much in advance!
