Here is a mod for creating a shortened or truncated album description on the main page and then displaying the full description on the album thumbnail pages. All code additions or changes are done in the theme.php and I'll have a plugin for this soon. However, I think it's good to give this a try as it demonstrates how to create functions, variables and {TAGS} for your gallery. It's simple so give it a try.

Add this variable at the top of your theme.php file, preferably right after any define statements:
Code: [Select]
$album_desc = get_album_desc($_GET[album]);
Add these two functions at the end of your theme.php file before the ?>. The first function is to retrieve the album description and the second is to truncate the description for the main page (album listing).
Code: [Select]
// Get the name of an album
function get_album_desc($aid)
{
    global $CONFIG;
    global $lang_errors;
    $result = cpg_db_query("SELECT description from {$CONFIG['TABLE_ALBUMS']} WHERE aid='$aid'");
    $count = mysql_num_rows($result);
    if ($count > 0) {
        $row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
        return bb_decode($row['description']);
    } else {
        return "Album not found";
    }
}

// Function for truncating long text strings.
// Original PHP code by Chirp Internet: www.chirp.com.au
// Please acknowledge use of this code by including this header.
// Adapted for Coppermine Photo Gallery use by Billy Bullock - www.billygbullock.com
function myTruncate($string, $limit, $break=".", $pad="...")
{
// return with no change if string is shorter than $limit
if(strlen($string) <= $limit) return $string;

// is $break present between $limit and the end of the string?
if(false !== ($breakpoint = strpos($string, $break, $limit))) {
if($breakpoint < strlen($string) - 1) {
$string = substr($string, 0, $breakpoint) . $pad;
}
}

return $string;
}

Add these two functions before the previous ones you just added. These are for displaying the truncated descriptions on the album listings. There are two, one for albums displayed under categories and one for uncategorized albums.
Code: [Select]
function theme_display_album_list(&$alb_list, $nbAlb, $cat, $page, $total_pages)
{

    global $CONFIG, $STATS_IN_ALB_LIST, $statistics, $template_tab_display, $template_album_list, $lang_album_list;

    $theme_alb_list_tab_tmpl['inactive_tab'] = strtr($theme_alb_list_tab_tmpl['inactive_tab'], array('{LINK}' => 'index.php?cat=' . $cat . '&amp;page=%d'));
    $theme_alb_list_tab_tmpl['inactive_next_tab'] = strtr($theme_alb_list_tab_tmpl['inactive_next_tab'], array('{LINK}' => 'index.php?cat=' . $cat . '&amp;page=%d'));
    $theme_alb_list_tab_tmpl['inactive_prev_tab'] = strtr($theme_alb_list_tab_tmpl['inactive_prev_tab'], array('{LINK}' => 'index.php?cat=' . $cat . '&amp;page=%d'));

    $tabs = create_tabs($nbAlb, $page, $total_pages, $theme_alb_list_tab_tmpl);

    $album_cell = template_extract_block($template_album_list, 'album_cell');

    endtable();

    echo $spacer;
}

If you already have these functions in your theme.php, you'll have to edit yours to include the changes. Basically replace the lines for the parameter '{ALB_DESC}' that appears in these new functions. To change the length of the truncated text, edit '{ALB_DESC}' => myTruncate($album['album_desc'], 30, " "), and change 30 to a length to suit your needs.

To add the album description to the album thumbnail page, add this variable somewhere in your theme.php.
Code: [Select]
// HTML template for title row of the thumbnail view (album title + sort options)
$template_thumb_view_title_row = <<<EOT

                        <table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
                        <tr>
                                <td width="100%" class="statlink"><h2>{ALBUM_NAME}</h2></td>
                                <td><img src="images/spacer.gif" width="1" alt="" /></td>
                                <td class="sortorder_cell">
                                        <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
                                        <tr>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options">{TITLE}</td>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options"><span class="statlink"><a href="thumbnails.php?album={AID}&amp;page={PAGE}&amp;sort=ta" title="{SORT_TA}">&nbsp;+&nbsp;</a></span></td>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options"><span class="statlink"><a href="thumbnails.php?album={AID}&amp;page={PAGE}&amp;sort=td" title="{SORT_TD}">&nbsp;-&nbsp;</a></span></td>
                                        </tr>
                                        <tr>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options">{NAME}</td>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options"><span class="statlink"><a href="thumbnails.php?album={AID}&amp;page={PAGE}&amp;sort=na" title="{SORT_NA}">&nbsp;+&nbsp;</a></span></td>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options"><span class="statlink"><a href="thumbnails.php?album={AID}&amp;page={PAGE}&amp;sort=nd" title="{SORT_ND}">&nbsp;-&nbsp;</a></span></td>
                                        </tr>
                                        <tr>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options">{DATE}</td>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options"><span class="statlink"><a href="thumbnails.php?album={AID}&amp;page={PAGE}&amp;sort=da" title="{SORT_DA}">&nbsp;+&nbsp;</a></span></td>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options"><span class="statlink"><a href="thumbnails.php?album={AID}&amp;page={PAGE}&amp;sort=dd" title="{SORT_DD}">&nbsp;-&nbsp;</a></span></td>
                                        </tr>
                                        <tr>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options">{POSITION}</td>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options"><span class="statlink"><a href="thumbnails.php?album={AID}&amp;page={PAGE}&amp;sort=pa" title="{SORT_PA}">&nbsp;+&nbsp;</a></span></td>
                                                <td class="sortorder_options"><span class="statlink"><a href="thumbnails.php?album={AID}&amp;page={PAGE}&amp;sort=pd" title="{SORT_PD}">&nbsp;-&nbsp;</a></span></td>
                                        </tr>
                                        </table>
                                </td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr><td>
                        <p>{$album_desc}</p>
                        </td></tr>
                        </table>
EOT;

Again, if this variable is already in your theme.php file, you can just add {$album_desc} and using standard HTML and css, you can move and style the text to suit your needs.

I have incorporated this mod into two of my latest themes and you can check them out in the demo gallery for ChaoticSoul and DFire. Check them out and let me know what you think.

Cheers,

Gizmo

ATTENTION: Code modified on Oct. 4, 2008 to fix bbcode issue when using bbcode or html code in the album description.

I should add that the truncated description is ended with "..." (3 dots) to let viewers know that there's more text to read. This is controlled by the variable $pad in the function myTruncate($string, $limit, $break=".", $pad="...") and can be changed to suit your needs.

[EDIT] I should also add that there's an easier way to truncate text with a single php command but it doesn't give you the trailing "..." to alert viewers to the additional text.

...and I'll have a plugin for this soon.

Gizmo, When you release a plugin, will there be any issue for the themes that have been modified with these functions?  Any  idea when you'll have it released?

Gizmo,

have not tried this mod out yet (waiting for the plugin  ;D ). But i do have one question.
Does this also display on the frontpage how many albums and pictures there are in each category ?

Regards,
Hein

I've been looking for something like this.  Thank you.

However, it does not respect BB Code or formatting structure such as paragraphing of the text.  Anyone know how to bring the formatting forward intact ?

Change

Code: [Select]
return $row['description'];
to

Code: [Select]
return bb_decode($row['description']);

Wow...  So simple.  I wish I understood the syntax and structure of this stuff.

Thank you Gizmo for the mod...
Thank you Nibbler for making it work for me...
Thank you Abbas Ali for directing me here...

Thank you all !

I'd like to suggest an improvement for your mod.  Instead of a static $limit variable, it would be great if the length could be customized for every description.  The script would search for an escape character, or if that's too difficult, the first line break.  Then the user could decide when to truncate for every description.  For example, you make a new album and write your description like this:

Code: [Select]
My trip with Eddie to Yellowstone.\t
Eddie and I drove up on Sunday morning.  We packed for cold weather but blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

Everything before \t is effectively a summary: what you want to see on the album list.  The entire string (minus the actual \t characters of course) is the full description: what you want to see when you're looking at that album alone.

how about getting the album stats to show up underneath the thumbnail, instead of under the description?

if I add:
Quote
// Get the name of an album
function get_album_desc($aid)
{
    global $CONFIG;
    global $lang_errors;
    $result = cpg_db_query("SELECT description from {$CONFIG['TABLE_ALBUMS']} WHERE aid='$aid'");
    $count = mysql_num_rows($result);
    if ($count > 0) {
        $row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
        return $row['description'];
    } else {
        return "Album not found";
    }
}
I get: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_album_desc() (previously declared in /gallery/themes/connections/theme.php:300) in /gallery/themes/connections/theme.php on line 527

If I remove that part from the original posting, it works fine.  Not sure if that is making an impact on the the way the mod is supposed to work?

Dear all,

is it possible to show the name and description also in empty albums? It's very important for me, because i'am set links in the description to content items in cms...

Thanks in advance
