Photolog with no exif data (8 posts)

    I was trying to use this Photolog script
    http://wordpress.org/support/index.php?action=vthread&forum=10&topic=4079&page=-1#11
    ... but it requires exif data.
    Is there anyone who could make a photolog with the same kind of features (and based on wordpress) for those users without exif installed on their server?

    I'd give Laughing Lizard a little while yet :)

    Hm? I didn't think Laughing Lizard was planning on changing his hack...

    I am sure that since exif data is not an "essential" part of a picture, LL will come up with something that still posts the pics, with or without exif.
    if (exif parser installed)
    post with exif details
    if (exif paraser not installed)
    post without exif details
    ...
    He will do it, once the product is past the first few hiccups.
    :)

    Thanks for the support everyone!
    I apologize for the long wait. Here is a version which does not use php_exif functions and should work for podz and ara (among others, please let me know if this fails as well)

    alexkingorg: I agree that Exifer would be a better solution. However, I am not able to spend time on that at the moment. If someone is willing to work that into the script, please feel free. If you do make those changes, please let me know so I can update my files.
    Thanks again for all the testing and the patience.
    :)

    Hmm.. not sure what I'm doing wrong. It's late, so I can't do anything now until tomorrow.
    Uploads work fine.
    Dirs are 755 (I have tried 766 / 777)
    Trying to publish gives these errors:
    Warning: imagejpeg(): Unable to open '/home/__path__/photoblog/wp-admin/thumbnails/thumblife.jpg' for writing in /home/__path__/photoblog/wp-admin/post.php on line 35
    Warning: imagejpeg(): Unable to open '/home/__path__/photoblog/wp-admin/images/sizedlife.jpg' for writing in /home/__path__/photoblog/wp-admin/post.php on line 35
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/__path__/photoblog/wp-admin/post.php:35) in /home/__path__/photoblog/wp-admin/post.php on line 236
    Is there a minimum size for an image ? As in dimensions ? Tried with a gif, and for a lot of errors before those 3 above.
    I'll email you the list LL :)

    :-P I guess I made everyone work a little too hard on a Sunday! Im sorry.
    podz: That is a permission issue. Do those files get created at all? gifs will NOT work. The dimensions for the newly created image are set on top of post.php which is inside wp-admin folder.

    @NuclearMoose and others facing some issues, I just finished adding this to the readme, so this might help on here as well...
    Some Issues raised with the install on the forums and possible solutions:
    If you are getting this error or similar:
    Call to undefined function: read_exif_data()
    You do not have EXIF compiled with php. The fastest solution is to download this:
    http://weblogtoolscollection.com/b2-img/pictorialis_no_exif.zip
    I will be working around this problem with a built in library soon.
    If you are getting this error or similar:
    Warning: imagejpeg(): Unable to open '/your/directory/thumfake.jpg'
    for writing in /your/directory/wp-admin/post.php on line 35
    First, for some reason, making post.php writeable makes a difference (which is really weird)
    My understanding of the problem is that even though you might have the directories set to 777
    your webserver does not have permission to the stuff inside the directory.
    I suggest that you delete the wp-admin/images and wp-admin/thumbnail directories and recreate
    them manually with the 777 permissions (or 766 would work as well). If that does not work, a quick
    email sent to your server admin will fix the issue.
    If you are getting this error or similar:
    Warning: imagecreatefromjpeg(): '/tmp/php42MvDb' is not a valid JPEG
    file in
    /home/virtual/site97/fst/var/www/html/photoblog/wp-admin/post.php on line 16
    This error is saying that it did not complete the upload to the /tmp directory
    of your webserver or the file got deleted before the script could pick it up. I am
    looking into this issue to see if I can find a workaround for it.
    Have fun, I have already seen a couple of very nicely done photologs from this.
