how can i upgrade it without installing all mods again?

- You can upgrade only following updating history and replace or modify all mentioned files.

By the type I mean the type should correspond to the internal PHP or server definitions, not this what could be mentioned in Internet or other sources. Again, please follow the instructions in the file I mentioned. I am sure everything works as it should work if you can install it correctly (else other customers would claim that too).

Be sure also you have uncommented the lines which you have added. Commented lines won't work.

I'm having a problem with the File Attachments and Automatic Image Galleries addon.

I have installed it following the instructions word for word. Everything appears to work, except the files are not uploaded the the uploads folder, however no errors are shown etc with error reporting turned on in PHP. I have checked the permissions for the upload folders and they seem to be set correctly to 777. Has anybody else had a similar problem. I currently have the following add-ons installed: Private Chat, Smileys, Avatars and Signatures. I've tested it locally and on my webserver and its behaving the same, really stuck any help much appreciated!

I've checked your forums and most probably you have missed enctype="multipart/form-data" tag for the form located under main_post_area.html template. I've pasted it and it appears to work now.

Two questions:

1.) I want a posting area with upload boxes shown by default (normal behaviour is that the user have to click on the link below the text area to show the boxes). Where can I set this?

2.) I wanted to use $jsUploadFields=2, so a first click shows me two upload boxes and after clicking the expand link, all boxes are shown.
But playing with this variable doesn't seem to have any effect at all - all (four) boxes are always shown :-/
Have I misunderstood its function?

Best regards,

1) Most probably you need to set the bigger value for $jsUploadFields option (if you have specified amount of boxes which exceeds this value they will be shown only if you click on the link)

2) If the value you have set up in $uploadForums is smaller than specified in $jsUploadFields then ONLY the link should be shown first.

Ah ok - I found the place where the addon code checks this right before reading your answer :-)

Thanks, Paul.


P.S.: the German translation will be done this weekend.

Just upgraded my File Upload extension to version 1.9.1. I've added the thumbnail hack code, and don't really like the way it stretches out the old thumbnails (now that there's a height and width set). Is there any way to disable the width for the thumbnails so they're proportional?

This change seems to make things MORE rigid instead of less (less rigid is why i love minibb). Perhaps i'm not understanding the options here. Is there a way to set maximum height or width and let the other dimension come in proportionally as it used to do?

I think the new option is more flexible as you can get your layout looking more good. Because the forums layout doesn't look good if there are lots of images with different dimensions. But you are right, for older thumbnails the code could not work 'cause there is strictly written to keep the new option's dimensions.

There is a way to avoid it if you modify hack's code for bb_plugins and there will be the image HTML:

<a href="{$urlp}"><img src="{$GLOBALS['uploadUrl']
}/2789/{$file}" {$thSet} alt="{$alt}" title="{$alt}" style="border:0px;vertical-align:middle"></a>

Just remove {$thSet} variable so the image size is not given.

Is your problem appearing for hack only or also for image thumbnails in the thread itself? As I remember I worked on keeping compatibility with the oldest version, but not sure it really works for everybody.

Thanks, Paul. That did the trick. The old mini-thumbnails look good.

In terms of the larger thumbnails in the post themselves, the old ones are not distorted. The reason I dislike the new format is that it now crops the image to fit the thumbnail size. My preference would be to set the height only and let the width be whatever it needs to be. I'd prefer to see a thumbnail of the entire pic than a cropped one (or at least have the option ;) ).

Thanks again for giving the fix for the old mini-thumbnails.

As I wrote above, for the layout design it is much better when you strictly know how large the thumbnail will be. That way you can set the proper width of forums (in CSS) and calculate how much images to display per one row in the thread etc. Overall it looks much nicer when all images have the same size. You will see it in action soon :-)

As about the previous algorithm - it was not ideal because when uploading let's say 1200x10 image, it could garble your design in one step.

Your reasoning, as always is sound. It makes sense to limit the thumbnail width. I guess if I had my wish I would like the thumbnail width to be a MAXIMUM width, that is, if the entire pic could be shown proportionally using a narrower width, it would be narrower, but never wider than the max setting.

I'd be willing to sponsor such a change/option if you think it's feasible and are willing to implement it. I've already gotten a couple complaints from users on my forum about the truncated squares.

As I mentioned already, if your problem affects only thumbnails hack, there is only a way to remove the image width/height attributes so all images are displayed with their original size. For old thumbnails posted in threads new version should work taking the old thumbnail sizes, f.e. if you check in this thread, you'll see there are old-type thumbnails resized proportionally and new-type thumbnails having static width and height as in the new version of the add-on.

I don't see much sense in reworking on that add-on and I think we'll keep the current schema when all thumbnails created are JPEGs and all they have static size set in options. This is more suitable.

As about this option -

if the entire pic could be shown proportionally using a narrower width, it would be narrower, but never wider than the max setting

- it was implemented in the previous versions of the add-on and as I mentioned, it brings more troubles in handling the images else we may expect, and it's a "difficult" way - currently we have much more simpler and affordable way.

I'm having trouble getting File Upload add-on to work.
I followed provided instructions, then double-checked everything, but for some reason file browse fields are not showing up in the post form.

When I check value of the $fileUpload variable in the post dialog after </textarea> - it is empty.
When I check its value at the end of the addon_fileupload.php it does have a proper code for the file browse fields, but it displays it at the end of the page.

It appears that population of the $fileUpload variable happens after the point where it is required...

I logged-in using various accounts including admin, tried explicitly setting forum IDs where uploads are allowed, etc... - no luck.
I'm missing something obvious, but I can't spot it.

Any suggestions on how resolve this?

We are providing free installation support regarding this add-on, so you might consider providing us temporary FTP info for getting this investigated. Contact us privately. Without debugging I can't say wha could be wrong (but whatever I could only say the reason is somewhere on your side, because this add-on absolutely works).

I'm having trouble uploading PDF files to my site. I have it permissioned in the addon_fileupload_options.php. The file size is way smaller than the maximum size. But no PDF file will load. I tested it out in the demo forum here and couldn't load a PDF, though perhaps the test forum is not permissioned for PDFs.

As usual, any advice appreciated!
