Slideshow view = Count for all album Pictures
« on: November 08, 2005, 05:29:36 pm »

So I've been searching the forums, and have come to understand that it is too difficult to track when someone stops a slideshow and to make the appropiate viewcount.

For my site, I think it would be somewhat more accurate, if when they view the slideshow, it counts one view for each image in that album.

Basically, view slideshow = one count for each image to be loaded.
I couldnt find that mod, does it exist somewhere?

Yes i did read that, but when I applied that mod it crashed my slideshow altogether (by crashed I mean it wouldnt play).
I backed up previous files and tried the mod a second time about a week later. Same result. I'm sure it's something on my end though.

I'm afraid there's no other solution than that link for now. Raising the count of all images in an album by one isn't a way I like (lol, you maybe have read that already). Still it's not very difficult. Maybe someone comes up with a lil hack

Perhaps I will try the mod a third time, slower, and if it still doesnt work, I will ask if anyone has any suggestions.

just had a look.. it's even easier than I though... still can put a lil bit load on mysql if it'S a huge album

in slideshow.inc.php add after
Code: [Select]
foreach ($pic_data as $picture) {
Code: [Select]
add_hit($picture['pid']);   
have fun

@lavashark - May be you can come on that thread and then we can discuss that mod and try to implement it on your site.

Actually the other topic won't allow me to reply.

But guess what!
Third time's a charm. I started from scratch and tried it again and it seems to work great.

I've tried this other one two times already. Maybe third times a charm for this ones as well.
