Album function?

Post by Virtuality »

I cant find the Feature Request page so I just say it here.

Will the php2.2 have a album feature?
Asking me, thats a very important feature and maby I will stick to 2.0.4 if that isnt included lol, because I really need it.

so, what do you think?

album? you mean images? We've got attachments and the possibility of using admin defineable fields but that's it ... we're a forum, not a gallery ;)

Yeah you got a point there lol :P

Lets hope the guy that has done the album for 2.0.4 also will do one for 2.2

You must know what I mean with the album, or?
Many phpBB boards, uses it.
You can see it on

Virtuality, Gallery, the open source project that is used for this mod is also developing a new version (Gallery2). I bet that it will be very easy to combine both again.

Your "album" feature is a mod, and the phpBB group is not responsible, neither do they know whether the author will release one for 2.2

I created a photo album mod on my forum site. I'm already trying to think of ways to do this easier in 2.2. I am sure that with the admin definable fields and the attachment feature, this is going to be much easier to do than it was for 2.0.x -- but I guess it really depends on your purpose and preferences for your album.

I'm hoping with the new features, I'll be able to have the photo album as part of each user's profile by using the admin definable fields. It will be much easier to limit how many photos a user is able to upload, and if events are implemented, it will be possible to automatically disallow photo uploads to new users - and allow them after a user has been a member for a certain length of time, or posted a certain number of times. I had a lot of people register at my site just to try out the photo album - which I did not encourage. (It is a public site, but has a specific target audience)

Anyway - can hardly wait for the new version to be ready - I know it's going to be awesome!
