Looking for super simple display
« on: July 01, 2016, 03:30:55 am »

Wow, it's been forever since I logged in here, I'm surprised my login still works, lol. :)

I'm looking to create a very simple, very clean photo gallery to showcase some items that I'm going to offer on eBay. All I want is are simple galleries, one per item, with maybe 4 or 5 photos of each item. I'd like the ability to have some explanatory text displayed with each image and a link to the eBay page.

I don't want commenting or rating or anything like that for the images, just a simple display with some text.

Frankly I was thinking of just doing a basic Wordpress site with a page for each item but I think Coppermine may be a better long-term solution. I'd also considered using some kind of shopping cart script, but most of the ones I looked at really don't lend themselves to this kind of use.

So, I guess my question is, how simple/clean can I make the Coppermine display? Can I turn off almost all of the advanced features and use it in a super basic mode, kind of like a product showcase? Are there any examples of this that people here could show me as a demo?

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

That would be possible. All you need is a custom theme with all the elements you do not require removed. Best way to start would be to search the available themes then when you have found one closest to your need, remove the elements you do not want to use.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Thank you very much, Phill. Would you have any suggestions on a couple of possible themes that might work for what I want to do? (There are almost 150 themes shown on the demo page and I've no idea where to begin, lol.)

Any suggestions would be very welcome.

Not sure what exactly you mean with "simple", but maybe you're looking for something like this: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,78162.0.html

Removing items is the same task for each theme, so I suggest to find a theme which fits your optical requirements and then adjust it to your needs.

Thank you, Αndré, something like that might work for what I have in mind.

On another note, how would one remove the tab strip at the top of the page, that is, the tabs for "Album list, Last uploads, Last comments", etc? I'd like to completely remove all those.

Do I need to manually edit/remark these out or is there a config setting that'll do it? I looked through the settings and didn't see anything like that, but I may have missed it or not recognized it.

If it's an edit, is that in the specific theme's template files or is that something in the core code?

how would one remove the tab strip at the top of the page, that is, the tabs for "Album list, Last uploads, Last comments", etc? I'd like to completely remove all those.

1) Open themes/your_theme/theme.php

FIND

Code: [Select]
    addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{ALB_LIST_LNK}','{ALB_LIST_TITLE}','{ALB_LIST_TGT}','album_list',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'','{ALB_LIST_ICO}','openul');
    addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{LASTUP_LNK}','{LASTUP_TITLE}','{LASTUP_TGT}','lastup',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'rel="nofollow"','{LASTUP_ICO}','innerli');
    addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{LASTCOM_LNK}','{LASTCOM_TITLE}','{LASTCOM_TGT}','lastcom',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'rel="nofollow"','{LASTCOM_ICO}','innerli');
    addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{TOPN_LNK}','{TOPN_TITLE}','{TOPN_TGT}','topn',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'rel="nofollow"','{TOPN_ICO}','innerli');
    addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{TOPRATED_LNK}','{TOPRATED_TITLE}','{TOPRATED_TGT}','toprated',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'rel="nofollow"','{TOPRATED_ICO}','innerli');
   addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{FAV_LNK}','{FAV_TITLE}','{FAV_TGT}','favpics',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'rel="nofollow"','{FAV_ICO}','closeul');

and ADD // in front of each line like this:

Code: [Select]
    // addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{ALB_LIST_LNK}','{ALB_LIST_TITLE}','{ALB_LIST_TGT}','album_list',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'','{ALB_LIST_ICO}','openul');
    // addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{LASTUP_LNK}','{LASTUP_TITLE}','{LASTUP_TGT}','lastup',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'rel="nofollow"','{LASTUP_ICO}','innerli');
    // addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{LASTCOM_LNK}','{LASTCOM_TITLE}','{LASTCOM_TGT}','lastcom',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'rel="nofollow"','{LASTCOM_ICO}','innerli');
    // addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{TOPN_LNK}','{TOPN_TITLE}','{TOPN_TGT}','topn',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'rel="nofollow"','{TOPN_ICO}','innerli');
    // addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{TOPRATED_LNK}','{TOPRATED_TITLE}','{TOPRATED_TGT}','toprated',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'rel="nofollow"','{TOPRATED_ICO}','innerli');
    // addbutton($sub_menu_buttons,'{FAV_LNK}','{FAV_TITLE}','{FAV_TGT}','favpics',$template_sub_menu_spacer,'rel="nofollow"','{FAV_ICO}','closeul');

Enable browsing by date should by OFF by default in Config http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg15x/docs/en/configuration.htm#admin_theme_browse_by_date

2) For my gallery link, e-cards button, comments and rating go to Users - Groups and set to NO Personal gallery, Rating, Ecards and Comments - http://www.aserivv.ee/gallery/docs/en/groups.htm#groups

3)

Check first if function $template_img_navbar is not in your theme.php. If not then copy to your theme.php at the end before ?>

Code: [Select]
/******************************************************************************
** Section <<<$template_img_navbar>>> - START
******************************************************************************/
// HTML template for the image navigation bar
$template_img_navbar = <<<EOT

        <tr>
                <td align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"><a href="{THUMB_TGT}" class="navmenu_pic" title="{THUMB_TITLE}"><img src="{LOCATION}images/navbar/thumbnails.png" align="middle" border="0" alt="{THUMB_TITLE}" /></a></td>
<!-- BEGIN pic_info_button -->
                <!-- button will be added by displayimage.js -->
                <td id="pic_info_button" align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"></td>
<!-- END pic_info_button -->
<!-- BEGIN slideshow_button -->
                <!-- button will be added by displayimage.js -->
                <td id="slideshow_button" align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"></td>
<!-- END slideshow_button -->
                <td align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="100%">{PIC_POS}</td>
<!-- BEGIN report_file_button -->
                <td align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"><a href="{REPORT_TGT}" class="navmenu_pic" title="{REPORT_TITLE}" rel="nofollow"><img src="{LOCATION}images/navbar/report.png" border="0" align="middle" alt="{REPORT_TITLE}" /></a></td>
<!-- END report_file_button -->
<!-- BEGIN ecard_button -->
                <td align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"><a href="{ECARD_TGT}" class="navmenu_pic" title="{ECARD_TITLE}" rel="nofollow"><img src="{LOCATION}images/navbar/ecard.png"  border="0" align="middle" alt="{ECARD_TITLE}" /></a></td>
<!-- END ecard_button -->
<!-- BEGIN nav_start -->
                <td align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"><a href="{START_TGT}" class="navmenu_pic" title="{START_TITLE}"><img src="{LOCATION}images/navbar/{START_IMAGE}" border="0" align="middle" alt="{START_TITLE}" /></a></td>
<!-- END nav_start -->
<!-- BEGIN nav_prev -->
                <td align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"><a href="{PREV_TGT}" class="navmenu_pic" title="{PREV_TITLE}"><img src="{LOCATION}images/navbar/{PREV_IMAGE}" border="0" align="middle" alt="{PREV_TITLE}" /></a></td>
<!-- END nav_prev -->
<!-- BEGIN nav_next -->
                <td align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"><a href="{NEXT_TGT}" class="navmenu_pic" title="{NEXT_TITLE}"><img src="{LOCATION}images/navbar/{NEXT_IMAGE}" border="0" align="middle" alt="{NEXT_TITLE}" /></a></td>
<!-- END nav_next -->
<!-- BEGIN nav_end -->
                <td align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"><a href="{END_TGT}" class="navmenu_pic" title="{END_TITLE}"><img src="{LOCATION}images/navbar/{END_IMAGE}" border="0" align="middle" alt="{END_TITLE}" /></a></td>
<!-- END nav_end -->

        </tr>

EOT;
/******************************************************************************
** Section <<<$template_img_navbar>>> - END
******************************************************************************/

AND DELETE from it what you don't want:

FOR pic info button DELETE

Code: [Select]
                <td id="pic_info_button" align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"></td>

FOR slideshow button DELETE

Code: [Select]
<td id="slideshow_button" align="center" valign="middle" class="navmenu" width="48"></td>


4) The filmstrip can be disabled from Config - Show film strip http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg15x/docs/en/configuration.htm#admin_image_comment_filmstrip_toggle

the ability to have some explanatory text displayed with each image and a link to the eBay page.

After the images are uploaded click continue and that takes you to edit pics page.
In the description you add your text.
For a link use coppermine bbcode http://documentation.coppermine-gallery.net/nl/bbcode.htm#bbcode_available

You can also do that even for images already uploaded: every album has an Edit Files button.

Wow, thank you allvip for the detailed "how-to" information!

I'll post a link to the gallery once I've gotten it in shape.

Thanks again!
