watermarks and how to install/use the mod pack
« on: December 03, 2009, 06:44:30 am »

Hi...

I just want to say in advance thanks for everything this community is offering. I am, however, to find that after about 2 hours of reading and searching, I have yet to find a clear explanation of how to get watermarks on my site.

I installed the modpack, and even that wasnt 100% clear to me. I still managed to update my site, but I do not see the functions that were mentioned (private message system..where?) as well as any watermark settings.

I am not a programmer so forgive me if I come across as an idiot. I just really don't understand how to get watermarks to work and I read that the modpack would help.

my gallery link is nirvanaweb.com/gallery

(note: I am using 1.4.25 and installed modpack for 1.4.24 - is that a problem?)


thanks in advance

Please use english US to do the settings.
Have a look at the readme file that comes with the modpack

I downloaded from this link:
http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,60091.0.html

There is no read me file. Just a few links that led me to here.

The readme file comes with the package, so stop the excuses.

I have read that file and followed the links but I do not see any difference in my coppermine after I installed this mod pack.

If you've installed the modpack correctly and switched your language to english US (changing that in config won't work as this just selects the language if auto detect doesn't work) you should see additional entries in config (switch to english US with www.domain.com/gallery/index.php?lang=english )

I'm sorry but I have no idea what you are refering to. I just uploaded all the files, ran update.php and even tried your config language link....nothing. There is no such Watermark.

If you want, i can PM you the admin login and url, because I am completely clueless at this point.

Since you put it so politely, I will heed your advice.

Seriously, wth is your problem. There is NO read me. There is just this: _modpack_howto.txt. Inside you find:

I've visited all these links. Some of those threads become confusing...others simply don't answer my question.

When I view your gallery I do not see the modpack installed. So watermarking won't work.

That is odd.

I am re-uploading all my files once again, this time with the FTP of my html editor. My previous FTP client seems to have a few problems uploading all the files. I am hoping that was my problem.

...I just don't understand when you use words like "entries". Please don't assume I have any previous knowledge of CPG or any programming experience, as I dont. Will visting
Can you explain to me exactly what I must do for the english switch? Does visiting www.domain.com/gallery/index.php?lang=english automatically do this change? Will I have to visit that URL whenever I have to do changes that cant be done via config? its somewhat confusing to me...

ok just a quick update, it seems the mod pack has been (finally) installed properly.

I seem to be missing the "save new configuration" button in Config....and it says "Invalid action" at the bottom of my Config menu.

The link above was just an example. Your link would be http://www.nirvanaweb.com/gallery/index.php?lang=english which just forces the language to english for you.

Read the docs to find out more on this.

http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/docs/index.htm#admin_language

As for the word "entries", it is not programming magic or gibberish. It is plain English meaning that there will be extra options in your administrator panel. Extra things for you to configure. Simple as that.

Anyway, it looks like you do now have the modpack installed so hopefully you are now OK?

thanks for quick reply. I wasn't asking about the definition of the word per se, was simply wondering if it had a more programming-related definition. Anyway, as I mentioned in my last post, the installation is complete, but I cannot seem to save in config. There is no button. I am also getting the following error when trying to view images:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method: coppermine_udb->get_comments() in /homepages/11/d251874233/htdocs/nirvanaweb/gallery/include/themes.inc.php on line 2459

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

The error suggests that you have not uploaded something correctly.

Performing a search for the error - themes.inc.php on line 2459 - brings up

http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,61388.0.html

To me it sounds like you are having trouble with whatever ftp package you are using. Here are the steps I would do.

Backup your site and your database - Really important that step.

Download filezilla, the client version - http://filezilla-project.org/

Set that up and make sure you can connect correctly etc.

Perform all the steps as if you were upgrading - http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/docs/index.htm#14

Don't forget to run update.php

This will make sure all your core files are correct. Then make sure your site is working as expected.

If it is then install the modpack as per the docs, again using filezilla as your ftp app.

Hopefully now everything will work fine.
