How to: manually adapt template, customise YAPB output, link to orig (1 post)

    Since the YAPB forum is broken, I thought I'd post this here. This should really be added to the FAQ (or maybe even a better example than this) because it took me a loonnnnnng time to figure this out on my own due to my limited WP and PHP experience.

    Comments look like this in my example:

    //comment about the code

    You can also link directly to the original image of a post with this code (zomg this was hard to figure out! this should be in the FAQ):

    <a href=" <?php echo $post->image->uri ?> "> link text </a>

    Also, where I use "getThumbnailHref(array(" and then there are a lot of settings, those are from: http://phpthumb.sourceforge.net/demo/docs/phpthumb.readme.txt - you can use that help file to customize your own settings for getThumbnailHref to choose how the YAPB image appears (size, max height, max width, orientation, etc.).

    One of the main things I did was add maximum height (hl=, hp=, hs=) limits so that no matter what the aspect ratio of an image, it always had the same height so that it wouldn't break my formatting.

    Also, get a good code editor plugin for WP so you can more easily read and edit code in the Theme Editor. I recommend "Advanced Code Editor": http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-code-editor/

    .

    What this code does is: checks to see if it's a photoblog post, and then displays different results under these circumstances:

    1) single post with user logged in: the thumbnail image links to the original image (full size)

    2) single post, but user not logged in: the thumbnail image has no link

    3) many posts on one page: the thumbnail image links to the single post page.

    You can use a variety of nested IF is_something statements to display different content this way depending on the circumstances, such as IF is_category - display a different result depending on the category, etc. There are lots of is_something tools in WP: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/is_category

    .

    If you have separate templates for a single post and a list of multiple posts (your main blog page) you can use this on your single post template (usually single.php):

    <?php if (yapb_is_photoblog_post()): //make sure it's a YAPB post ?>
    
      <?php if(is_user_logged_in()): //check if it's being viewed by a logged-in user ?> 
    
       	  <div class="yapb-image-custom">
    		<a href="<?php echo $post->image->uri //link to the full-size image ?>" target="_self">
    		  <img src="<?php echo $post->image->getThumbnailHref(array('w=900', 'h=600', 'hl=600', 'hp=600', 'hs=600', 'q=90','fltr[]=usm|80|0.5|25')) ?>"
    		  title="Click to open full-size photo: <?php echo $post->post_title ?>" alt="<?php echo $post->post_title ?>" >
    	  	</a>
       	  </div>
    
      <?php else: //the viewer is not logged in, so just show the image with no link ?>
    
       	  <div class="yapb-image-custom">
    	 	<img src="<?php echo $post->image->getThumbnailHref(array('w=900', 'h=600', 'hl=600', 'hp=600', 'hs=600', 'q=90','fltr[]=usm|80|0.5|25')) ?>"
    		title="<?php echo $post->post_title ?>" alt="<?php echo $post->post_title ?>" >
       	  </div>
    
      <?php endif ?>   
    
    <?php else: //it's not a YAPB post, so we don't display anything ?>
    
    <?php endif ?>

    and something like this on your main blog (multiple post list) template (usually index.php):

    <?php if (yapb_is_photoblog_post()): //make sure it's a YAPB post ?>
    
       <div class="yapb-image-custom">
    	 <a href="<?php echo post_permalink(); //link to the single post ?>" target="_self">
    	   <img src="<?php echo $post->image->getThumbnailHref(array('w=900', 'h=600', 'hl=600', 'hp=600', 'hs=600', 'q=90','fltr[]=usm|80|0.5|25')) ?>"
    	   title="<?php echo $post->post_title ?>" alt="<?php echo $post->post_title ?>" >
    	 </a>
       </div>
    
    <?php else: //it's not a YAPB post, so we don't display anything ?>
    
    <?php endif ?>

    If you only have one template controlling both single posts and lists of posts (your blog) then you have to mash it all together. This is the case with a lot of custom themes that use /includes/post-template.php to manage posts. This is what my theme uses, and this is the code I'm currently using.

    <?php if (yapb_is_photoblog_post()): //make sure it's a YAPB post ?>
    
      <?php if(is_single()): //check if it's a single post and not a list of posts ?>  
    
      <?php if(is_user_logged_in()): //check if it's being viewed by a logged-in user ?> 
    
       	  <div class="yapb-image-custom">
    		<a href="<?php echo $post->image->uri //link to the full-size image ?>" target="_self">
    		  <img src="<?php echo $post->image->getThumbnailHref(array('w=900', 'h=600', 'hl=600', 'hp=600', 'hs=600', 'q=90','fltr[]=usm|80|0.5|25')) ?>"
    		  title="Click to open full-size photo: <?php echo $post->post_title ?>" alt="<?php echo $post->post_title ?>" >
    	  	</a>
       	  </div>
    
      	<?php else: //the viewer is not logged in, so just show the image with no link ?>
    
       	  <div class="yapb-image-custom">
    	 	<img src="<?php echo $post->image->getThumbnailHref(array('w=900', 'h=600', 'hl=600', 'hp=600', 'hs=600', 'q=90','fltr[]=usm|80|0.5|25')) ?>"
    		title="<?php echo $post->post_title ?>" alt="<?php echo $post->post_title ?>" >
       	  </div>
    
      	<?php endif ?>
    
      <?php else: //it's not a single post, so it must be a list of multiple posts ?>
    
       <div class="yapb-image-custom">
    	 <a href="<?php echo post_permalink(); //link to the single post ?>" target="_self">
    	   <img src="<?php echo $post->image->getThumbnailHref(array('w=900', 'h=600', 'hl=600', 'hp=600', 'hs=600', 'q=90','fltr[]=usm|80|0.5|25')) ?>"
    	   title="<?php echo $post->post_title ?>" alt="<?php echo $post->post_title ?>" >
    	 </a>
       </div>
    
      <?php endif ?>   
    
    <?php else: //it's not a YAPB post, so we don't display anything ?>
    
    <?php endif ?>
