Titel: A lot of unanswered questions.

I have installed the uploadpic mod and found a lot of unanswerd questions even after reading the Readme.txt and the FAQ

The questions mainly are to do with the ACP config panel which does not have default settings (would be a good idea) nor does it have explanations as to what each and every line in it is meant to do.

Can you please explain the following for me so I can set the config panel to it's optimum for users to be able to use this mod thanks.

Make unique filename?

What does this do and how do you set it up?

delete unused pictures on "back"/"cancel"

What is the purpose of this?

"Left and Right IMG tags"-MOD installed?

The default setting is blank with option to turn it on/off ... what does the default blank mean?

shows an extra input-field with the img-BBCode

I understand this allows the mod to be used on Quick Reply mods however because there is no edit to viewtopic.tpl it does not show and therefore does not work.

allowed datatypes

Default settings would be very handy here as the way they are typed in could result in failures to upload images.

jpg-quality for resized picture (0-100)

Again a recommended default setting would be great for those that know nothing about image quality.

allow user-gallery

Where is this user gallery?

apply watermark to uploaded pictures?

Again we have a blank default setting ... what is it ... yes or no?

watermark-picture

Where is the watermark picture? None is included with the files.

min. picture-size to apply watermark

Again no information on what is an acceptable or recommended size. Please advise.

information-text to be shown before upload (optional)

What is the purpose of this text and what text. if any. is recommended to use?

I will wait patiently for answers to all the above questions so that the mod can be implemented and used by the members of my forum thanks.

~HG~ @ Sa, 21 Jan 2006, 22:52 gab folgendes von sich:
The questions mainly are to do with the ACP config panel which does not have default settings

Did you execute the install-script ? Actually ALL fields in the config have a default-setting.
Also most of your questions are covered in the readme.txt - e.g. there's a whole paragraph about the setting of "uploadpic_delete" and "uploadpic_uniqfn", starting in line 133.

~HG~ gab folgendes von sich:
shows an extra input-field with the img-BBCode
I understand this allows the mod to be used on Quick Reply mods (...)

It has nothing to do with Quick Reply MODs, it just shows an input-field with the BBCode in the UploadPic-window after the upload.

~HG~ gab folgendes von sich:
allow user-gallery
Where is this user gallery?

In the UploadPic-window, first screen, between the buttons on the bottom.

~HG~ gab folgendes von sich:
watermark-picture
Where is the watermark picture? None is included with the files.

Correct. You wouldn't want a watermark in your pictures with the URL of my forum, would you ? big grin

~HG~ gab folgendes von sich:
information-text to be shown before upload (optional)
What is the purpose of this text and what text. if any. is recommended to use?

Well, it's optional and does what it says: "it shows a text before the upload" ... check it out ...


I recommend you execute the install-script and read the readme.txt again (and the FAQ, there's something about the watermarks in there as well). Play with the settings afterwards, it's all pretty self-explanatory and then get back to me with whatever questions remain, ok ?

I have executed the install script so that does not create a problem and it all installed successfully.

I have read and re-read the FAQ and Redme.txt and I cannot find the answers to the questions I have asked above.

I also have a problem when uploading a .gif in that I get this error message"

The datatype image/gif is not supported.

Even after installing the DB there are no default settings in the ACP

We're talking about the file "install/install_uploadpic.php" and not about anything that EasyMOD does, right ?

Sorry, but I just installed a fresh copy of phpBB locally and the installed UploadPic, the install-script works fine and sets default-values for ALL settings !

~HG~ gab folgendes von sich:

If you don't have supported datatypes in your config, NO pictures will be allowed - put this in:
"image/jpg|image/jpeg|image/pjpeg|image/gif|image/png|image/x-png|image/x- citrix-pjpeg"

I have read and re-read the FAQ and Redme.txt and I cannot find the answers to the questions I have asked above.

This is a part of the readme.txt - what question concerning the two settings remains ??

Zitat:
uploadpic_delete determins, if uploaded pictures will be deleted to safe
diskspace, if the user doesn't want to use the uploaded picture and clicks
"back" or "cancel". If you (the admin) have to know, what pictures where
uploaded and *not* used afterwards, set this flag to "false".
uploadpic_uniqfn makes the MOD to check for existing files after each upload.
If a file with the same name already exists, the combination "_NR" will be
attached to the filname, "NR" being a counter. This is to prevent users from
overwriting files when they upload different pictures with the same name.

I dont use easymod and I ran the install file as per the instructions. I have no default settings in the config panel in ACP.

I copied the text exactly from your upload window because as I said, there are no default settings in the config panel.

I am now guessing that I should copy the above line "exactly" as is?

... and you executed the file install/install_uploadpic.php and saw something like this:


... if you confirmed this screen, you MUST have defaults in your ACP !

~HG~ gab folgendes von sich:

Without the quotes ... yes ...

~HG~ gab folgendes von sich:

Whatever you like ... if you want unused pictures to be deleted, tick it ...

~HG~ gab folgendes von sich:
Same for "Left and Right IMG tags"-MOD installed? (I do not have this installed)

A ticked box means "YES" for all options ... I considered that to be a standard ...

Well, than you've come across something that's technically impossible ... good one ! Wink

And that in the middle of the night ... it's almost 2a.m. here - got to get some sleep ... gaehn

Your "A new feature has been added."-message in the "Recent topics"-list is about that, I suppose ? Your members didn't seem to be testing the list, because clicking a topic results in an error ... looks like you'll be annoying somebody else pretty soon Cool

If you have more time to waste: here is another MOD, let's see if you find some more features from the twilight zone big grin

all right now, good night !
