WordPress Photolog New Version (79 posts)

    There is a new version of Pictorialis out which fixes a couple of issues that were brought up with the Beta and you can download it from http://weblogtoolscollection.com/b2-img/pictorialis.zip
    Fixes for this version include:
    - Built in EXIF support which does not need pre-compiled EXIF in PHP
    - There is a selection mechanism for versions of GD which makes sure you always get the best possible thumbnails and pictures conversion.
    - This also has some file upload fixes which makes sure that the uploaded files do not get erased before the script gets a chance to grab the files.
    - The installation process has also been better defined with some fixes for the installation troubles reported from the previous version.
    As in the pervious version, this new version has the following features:
    - XHTML compliant code
    - Simple once click addition of photos, auto thumbnail and resizing
    - Extraction of EXIF information from original photo and saved as meta
    - Easy installation, as easy as installing WordPress
    - Simple, clean design and look
    - Simple navigation
    My example PhotoBlog with WordPress can be found at Pictorialis

    it says it cannot open the just created thumb and other img files , for writing. So there is a chmod problem that you know of maybe ?
    Can't find the piece of script that thakes care of the rights.

    sorry it's fixed (didn't read the extra readme here.)
    Thanx also for this piece of software, it's running in no time (as long as you read the readme that is).

    The "readmePhotoLog.txt" file says to:

    Create 2 new directories called "images" and "thumbnail" in your wp-admin folder Change the permissions of these folders to 777 or make them readable and writeable by everyone

    The second directory - I'm almost positive - should be named "thumbnails" (plural) instead of thumbnail.
    Another great piece of programming Laughing Lizard.

    hi... excellent instructions and overall very cool stuff !!!
    i do however get this wierdness on when i click on main (not thumbnail) photo where permalink/comments page goes to a page-not-found...
    i did do the the permalink instuctions and added the .htaccess file to that directory.
    i get a url like this (...bwph/upload/042904toofunny.jpg) and a page not found...
    other than that everything works great!
    any ideas?
    thanks for the cool re-tooling photoblog :)

    @beleg:
    a little more complicated than that. Give me a couple of days to come up with a recent photos script which will give you the ability to show the x number of recent photos as thumbnails which then redirect to pictorialis.
    The other option I am thinking about writing is the ability to upload more than one picture at one time.

    More than one picture at one time? You mean, like, you would upload a series of related photos which would appear as one post? Yeah, I could see that as a good thing.
    I guess as long as the series is on one theme, it might be nice to just have one thumbnail as representative of them all, rather than all of them. Is that how you were planning on doing it?

    Just a question, will this work with WP 1.2?

    @Anonymous, this is not like any other hack or mod out there. LaughingLizard has used a 1.2 nightly build wordpress and reworked it majorly to get the photolog. So if you want to install it, you have to grab the files from LL's download site and you will see that the files are basically an entire hacked wordpress. So it's really like installing a seperate wordpress blog, and yes it is based on 1.2, if that was your question.

    I am just wondering why the comments link won't show up if I use a link like this:
    http://ara.faithful.nu/photos/index.php?p=32
    But if I link to it like this:
    http://ara.faithful.nu/photos/index.php?cat=2&paged=1
    The comments show up fine.

    I am definitely not having an "easy installation" lol, but I'm trying to follow the instructions & cant see where to put this one:
    3) Open post.php in your wp-admin folder and edit it.
    Find this line and replace it with the real path of your upload directory you
    just created. Like so, example: /home/httpdocs/pictorialis/wp-admin/upload/
    Dont forget the trailing slash
    thanks for any help...

    post.php is inside your wp-admin folder. Open it for editing and make those changes.

    I've found post.php- but the instructions arent very clear exactly where to put the changes...
    ...nevermind, .I have found it now almost accidentally- was doing a find for your example instead .
    I couldnt see where it said Find this line, but it didnt seem to say which line to find. if you know what i mean.
    thanks again,

    :) Sorry. I am glad you found the answer you were looking for. I guess that part of the readme could use a little more work.

    Hey LL, sorry to bother you but I am getting wierdness on my archive page since May popped its head in...any suggestions? http://ryanflynnphoto.com/blog
    Also, I can upload the photos no problem, but then their permissions are so low (excuse my ignorance) that they will not post, so I have to go into my sites control panel and set tmen to 777...is there anyway to specify this?
    Gracias'

    Ryan:
    I suggest you grab the latest release and take a look at the code and the CSS. That takes care of some of the archives issues that you have mentioned. As for the upload issue, the new version takes care of some of that as well. I suggest that after you download the vew version, you replace wp-admin/post.php and create the necessary directories as suggested in the readme
    Backup everything first. The database does not need an upgrade for this version.

    LL,
    I too am not clear on the "change this line in post.php"...what line do you mean? I've not a clue, and the longer I stare at it, the more I realise I'm a doofus! :)

    NM: The readme has been updated in the download. I should have thought of that before hand :)
    This is the line that needs to be changed according to the example in the readme:
    $UploadDir = 'Replace with the path to your upload directory, dont forget the trailing slash';

    LL...
    Are you talking about the readme.html or the readme.txt? I have the newest download, and the .TXT version is not changed. Just thought I'd let you know.
    Thanks for a great application, BTW. Superb!

    Are you sure NuclearMoose? I see the changes in the .TXT here...

    Hi, I just started using this whole word-press stuff, so may have gotten some wrong, but When I click on the edit button, only the most recent photo entry appears in the list of posts. (should they all be there?) Also, I've been having to go into the edit to change the address that the photo links to the full version. In readme, there is an upload folder added in the root dir. at the last step , which this photo's link points to, but the actual file has been uploaded to the dir created in the first step, which is in wp-admin/upload....how do i fix this?

    Krinkle, I also only see the last entry under the edit tab then I end up having to search, but I amnot wanting to use title on images so I dont even know what to search for....
    LL= can you help us here?

    Sure! I apologize. I thought I had that fix in the download, but I must have lost it somewhere. Here is a quick fix.
    Open up wp-admin/edit.php in your favourite text editor and look for this line:
    require_once('admin-header.php');
    Add this line just below the line above:
    $posts_per_page = '-1';
    This controls the number of posts that the edit page displays. If and when your blog grows to hundreds of photos, you coupld replace the -1 (which returns every post for editing) with a number of your choice such as 20.
    Peace

    Hey LL : I cant figure out how (if possible) I can remove the thumbnails from the index page and have them just show up in the archives.
    Also, whenever I go to edit a post, when I save it, it publishes it a second time, any ideas?
    Also, can I title a post but not have the title show up on the site? I just want to title it so I have a reference in the edit.php page.
    Sorry for bugging you. Thanks.
    Ryan
