About the new photo gallery tool option

Postby Mark » 09 Sep 2011 16:31

FAO All Members

We have recently installed the phpBB Gallery modification over on our sister-forum. The gallery allows members or forum staff to create online albums that contain photographs and other images for the forum membership to view and enjoy. Currently the Napoleonic Wars Forum has a single album (which was uploaded yesterday) containing almost 270 photos taken by a member who had visited a Napoleonic Wars related museum in France. The photos are splendid and it has given members the opportunity to view something that many may never have the pleasure of seeing first-hand. The gallery can be found here: http://www.napoleonicwarsforum.com/gallery/index.php

*Please note you need to be a registered member of our sister-forum to view the gallery.

So the question is would members on the Victorian Wars Forum like to see the same gallery mod installed here? Also do members have any ideas for albums and photos/images to share with fellow members?

Thanks for the feedback, Peter! The gallery over on the NWF looks fantastic and I would like to do the same here if members have photos they would like to share.

The phpBB Gallery modification is now installed and ready to use. As an example album I have created one that includes images of Victorian period campaign medals which can be viewed here: gallery/album.php?album_id=3

Hi All

Those of you who are also members of the Napoleonic Wars Forum will probably have noticed that a few new albums have appeared in the gallery containing some superb photos and other images submitted by members. Sadly we have only one album here on the Victorian Wars Forum and we would dearly love to add more. If you have any photos or images you would like to share please do send me a PM and I can create you an album. Maybe you have visited a battlefield or two taking photos of your time there or have copies of period images you would like to show the forum?

Here are some African items that form my avatar. I may change my Avatar but the theme will be the same. This is a poor photo and the tip of the huge Sudanese spear from the Kordofan region has been cropped.. The blade is 16 1/4 inches (41 1/4 Cm.) long not including socket. It is the largest leaf shaped blade in Africa if you take into account it's width. The shield is a Somali arm shield. Actually a buckler. It is 11 1/4 (28 1/2 Cm.) across. It was worn on the bicep and slids down to the hand for combat.
The spear to the left of the Sudanese spear is a Tuareg throwing spear. The three spears to the right are Congolese. I own these items.

Hi Ed

Yes we are going to include the showcases in the active topics list but it involves changing some properties for each individiual showcase sub-forum so bear with me as it isn't a five minute job. The showcases will still remain invisible to guests and only registered members will be able to view them.

Hi All

Just a reminder that you can now add images bigger than the 640x640 and 256kb originally set for the forum. Pixel wise images can be any size you want since the new image resizer modification will allow this and the file size is now set to 1024kb (1mb).

Image Resizer Mod Reinstalled

Postby Mark » 26 Jul 2013 19:22

It appears the image resizer mod that allows members to post images greater than 700x700 pixels had ceased working. I have reinstalled the mod and should now be working.
