MOD: Comments in a popup window
« on: January 23, 2006, 04:54:09 am »

My users always, for some reason, seem to think that the comments section of the gallery is a chat or even a forum. I remind them over and over again that the comments have to be  100% related to the pictures, but they don't understand, so I decided to modify Coppermine to show the comments in a popup window. It also helps so that when you just want to browse the Gallery you don't have to wait for the comments to load everytime. Now, if I want to read the comments for a speciif picture, I choose to do it when I want to ;).

There are two ways of installing this mod: the Pre Modded Files and  the Code Changes.
With the Pre Modded files the files  can just be replaced  that's about  it. Doing the Code Changes takes longer, but it is helpful if there are any other mods already installed in your CPG (The mod instructions follow, almost, the mod template for phpbb mods ;-) here you can find the guide to install this kind of mods, if you choose to do the code changes)

Here is  what it looks like after installing this mod:


As you can see, the comments section is gone. Only a link appears now in the form: Comments (<number of comments here>)

When the link is clicked, the popup shows up with all the comments and a thumbnail of the picture. The template can be modified easily to show only what you want.

I have included the Pre Modded Files for the latest version CPG 1.4.9 here.   ;)

Also,  I would like to get some feedback about this mod from any users that have used it. I know is not very popular, but I'm curious to know if it is of any use at all, or if it works fine. :)

Anyone know how to add the comment popup button to the navigation menu for intermediate images on displayimage.php?
Should be a simple addition - but cant figure it out.
Thanks!

I like this mod verry much.
Tried to ad it to my website but encountered a problem.
When the pop-up window opens the backgound colour is white instead of black, like my theme, so my comments cannot be read. (white text)
How can i change this background colour in to black?
Made the code changes myself.

Disabled the mod at this moment.
Hoping for a solution for this great mod.

It seems that you  hard coded  the background and the stylesheet location into the html.


The original should have something like this:
Code: [Select]
<link rel="stylesheet" href="themes/theme_name_here/style.css" type="text/css" />
This is your code:
Code: [Select]
<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<body bgcolor="#000000">

The comment popup window has the original code which dynamically changes the theme according to the user's preferences. I suppose you can do the same to the popup to reflect the same look as the gallery.


Install  the comment popup mod

Open your includes/themes.inc.php    file and  go to line, or close, to 1197 and you'll see
Code: [Select]
<link rel="stylesheet" href="{THEME}style.css" type="text/css" />
replace it with
Code: [Select]
<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<body bgcolor="#000000">

Let me know if that fixed the problem.

Hi, thanks for the great mod.  It works great for 2 of my 3 coppermine gallery sites.  However, the link for the popup commentary windows does not display in my third site.  the only difference is that this site uses a slightly modified Rainyday theme, whereas the other two use igames and classic theme.  So either the this mod doesnt work for the Rainyday theme as is, or one of the changes i made to it is somehow stopping the popup link from showing.  ive attached my theme, any help you can give me would be appreciated.

ok, so i figured it out, rainyday theme works fine unmodified.  Not sure why but the bit of code i had added from sample/themes.php so that i could put google adsense start/end tags around the comments caused the problem.  So i removed the following code and everything works great now, thanks a lot for  saving my bandwidth.

Code removed from my theme.php:

// HTML template for intermediate image display
$template_display_media = <<<EOT
        <tr>
                <td align="center" class="display_media" nowrap="nowrap">
                        <table cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0" class="imageborder">
                                <tr>
                                        <td align="center">
                                                {IMAGE}

                                        </td>
                                </tr>
                        </table>
                </td></tr>
                <tr><td>
                                                <table width="100%" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0" class="tableb">
                                <tr>
                                        <td align="center">

                                                {ADMIN_MENU}
                                        </td>
                                </tr>
                        </table>

<!-- BEGIN img_desc -->
                        <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tableb" width="100%">
<!-- BEGIN title --><!-- google_ad_section_start -->
                                <tr>
                                        <td class="tableb"><center><b>
                                                {TITLE}
                                        </b></center></td>
                                </tr>
<!-- END title -->
<!-- BEGIN caption -->
                                <tr>
                                        <td class="tableb"><center>
                                                {CAPTION}
                                        </center></td>
                                </tr>
<!-- END caption -->
                        </table>
<!-- END img_desc --><!-- google_ad_section_end -->
                </td>
        </tr>
