Just to make sure, you are saying that I should copy the entire theme_html_picture function into the theme.php that I am using, and then make the modifications listed in step 2 above?

[edit]
Well, that's just what I did.  Worked perfect.  Thanks for the work guys!

Thanks Paver for your reply and Sorry about all the trouble I caused.

I am not at all into php and so you will need to tell me what to edit and where to edit.

I am seeing quotation mark in the file and BTW the classic theme does not contain anything like that code. I can see the code in the theme.inc.php though.

In which of the files I need to edit the code and where ?

displayimage.php
theme.php
theme.inc.php

Also tell me the right code to paste inside the file.

Thanks in Advance

edit theme.php. If code that you want to edit appears to be "missing" in your theme, copy the corresponding section from themes/sample/theme.php (that's the reference file). Do not copy the entire content of themes/sample/theme.php, but only the stuff you want to override.
Never, ever edit include/themes.inc.php

Thanks GauGau Bro

I did all the procedure and uploaded original versions of displayimage.php and theme.inc.php but still it doesn't work

it shows just a blank page with the letters "RIFFĸ" when I click on "Click here to download" link.

hotvins:  Something's weird with your download.php script.  You obviously fixed your theme problem because that's all set.  Now download.php doesn't do what it's supposed to do.  Did you copy it exactly as it is shown?  download.php should not put up a banner or anything else; it should just send the header of a file to download.  ... unless your webhost is butting in and messing things up by putting up the banner & Google adwords on every page you post.  I don't know enough about webhosting issues to know if this is possible.

it is, free webhosts do this often. Usually, you can't use pre-made scripts like coppermine with those extremely ad-driven free webhosts, there are only a few exceptions to this rule.

In that case, I guess the only option is to use a "right click to save" note and then change the theme.php download link to point to the actual video file instead of the download.php script.

To Paver & GauGau

Can you please tell me how to point it to actual video file instead of the download.php script ?

You see, you might be thinking that why does he dont know anything but I have not coded in php at all. I have just installed version 1.3 once according to instructions and if you can remember GauGau, I also had asked you about adding the code of Google Adsense at that time in the past.

So your detailed help will be appreciated in the current situation because it is not affordable for me to go for a ad free host or paid host at this point of time since I am a student.

Are you a college student? Does your school give you webspace?

And you don't have to interpret minimal information as an expectation that you know more than you do. It's just that once we do enough support, we don't want to spend more time than necessary lest the user already knows the information. If not, we will provide more info.

hotvins: Where you currently have this line:
Code: [Select]
$pic_html .= "<p><a href=\"download.php?pid={$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pid']}\">Click here to download</a></p>";Replace it with this line:
Code: [Select]
$pic_html .= "<p><a href=\"$picture_url\">Right-click and Save to download video</a></p>";
That should do it.

@nontekkyguy: First of all, you should use the "CODE" button to bracket code you want to paste into a posting; it makes it so much easier to read.  Second of all, you shouldn't paste code or debug_info unless you are asked to.  In this case, you can merely say your theme.php does not include the code mentioned.

Finally, what code are you referring to?  It is not clear if you mean the $pic_html line I mentioned in the post just above yours or some other line since the line you quote is not clear what you mean.

Your problem is in your theme.php; you are not customizing theme.php correctly.  You need to copy the entire function or variable you want to customize from sample/theme.php.  You only copied a few lines.  If you read this entire thread, particularly mrandall's note about copying the theme_html_picture function, you'll understand better how to get this customization working.

Copy the entire theme_html_picture function from sample/theme.php into your theme.php, then modify the lines in that function.

How can I prevent unregistered users from using this to download videos?

I've used the solution in the FAQ of limiting unregistered users to thumbnails only, and I've also edited httpd.conf to prevent direct linking to video types. But if someone just directly uses a link like this http://www.mygallery.net/download.php?pid=176 they can download the video or hotlink to it on their site.

Can I just use the same code from the FAQ, i.e.
Code: [Select]
if (!USER_ID) cpg_die(ERROR, 'You need to register to access this page', __FILE__, __LINE__);
and if so, would it go after the line
Code: [Select]
require('include/init.inc.php');

I waited a few days as a "courtesy" to all those who hotlinked and then tried it out. Seems to work fine. I guess I was just being overly cautious in messing with code I haven't really worked with.

Thanks.

I wasn't sure if I should add to this thread, or start a new topic, but I am having memory problems using this hack.

I've been using it without problems for a couple months, but in the last few days, I have had problems running out of memory. What seems to be happening is that while the file is being downloaded, the particulary httpd thread starts consuming more memory. So if I have an 80MB file, at the end of the download, that thread is using 80+MB. After the download finishes, usually the memory is released, but not always apparently, so after a day each httpd thread was using 16-20MB even when idle. Add in a few large downloads and soon apache is using 100's of MB. I just recently updated to 1.4.4 but a clean install of both 1.4.2 and 1.4.4 exhibit this behaviour.

The only change I know of on the server is going from a 2.4 to a 2.6.8 kernel which is about the time I started having memory problems.

I've had to go back to just using a download link, which doesn't have any significant effect on the amount of memory used, but I'd like to use this again if someone has an idea how to fix it.
