Is there any Picture Gallery kind of addon we can install for the forums? Viewing comparison screens is tedious and not good at this moment, absolutely awful. The MyBB gallery solution was very nice.

 

With the current one, you can't switch to the next image, the images are expanded beyond the screen, so that you can't see the full image, and sometime you can't even 'open in the new tab', as certain service that people use to upload the images to prevent that option from being used.

S4N is supposedly working on a solution: Highline....Highwire...High*something*....but there is no ETA. It's extremely difficult to do mod testing where compares are needed atm.

Highslide is the custom plugin that s4n is working on. No ETA as yet, but it is high priority.

Great stuff, thanks.

 

I just found out that you can right click the thumbnails within the post (for igmur ones at least) and it will let you 'open in new tab'. That's helpful workaround, temporarily.

"It will be ready when it's ready" I am indeed working on a plugin to get high slide implemented in parts (same as I did for old forums). Modifying IPB behavior is significantly more powerful than with MyBB, but with that comes a greater learning curve. I'm about 60% done. Have been able to quick hack it of sorts, but need to separate things into their proper implementations. The time consuming part of learning how to override things is at least out of the way. I'm also on call this week (till Friday), and that takes priority, along with work at home. Gotta keep my better half happy. Not even going to attempt an ETA, because life tends to get in the way and make a liar out of me. But soon.

I have installed what I have so far to get highslide working with galleries in posts. A little rough around the edges, and still some things to work on, but at least the functionality is there.

 

If any issues are found, please let me know.

This is awesome and MUCH better, even if missing some convenience functionality.

 

Genius

I had to completely remove the post cache for it to enable on existing posts with images. The caches are slowly being rebuilt with each client view.

Yep ... will need to do the same when you figure out the spoiler custom bb code I started (see your PMs).

 

Anyway much needed and much welcome. When you are satisfied with it, we can remove the tag prefic on this thread and add the 'resolved' tag. ;)

I already added the tag because it at least exists and is functional. I also replied to your PM, you won't be able to do what you are attempting to do.
