4images gallery and phpBB3.3?

Post by Quiff Boy »

Has anyone come up with a working 4images bridge for phpBB3.3?

My old phpBB2 forum had an image gallery powered by 4images

https://www.4homepages.de/

It used an old "bridge" MOD which, from what I can remember, basically meant that 4images used your phpBB users table for user info rather than it's own, so you could share user login and permissions between the two. There wasn't any template integration as far as I can remember, but with a bit of html copy and pasting it meant that the gallery felt like part of the forum...

I'm upgrading my old phpBB2 board to phpBB3.3 but cannot find a way of integrating the 4images gallery software. I've asked on their support forums, but it looks like they haven't updated their "bridge" scripts since phpBB 3.0.5 in 2009

:shock:

It doesn't seem like a particularly active support forum either, so wondered if anyone on here has managed to get it working on v3.3?

Failing that, are there any good Gallery extensions for v3.3? (even if i have to do am manual migration of existing photo data)


Edit: sorry, just realised this should maybe been in the mod request section.

Additional edit: anyone know if this will work with pbpBB3.3? viewtopic.php?t=805765

The "MOD" u posted will not work on php3.3 only extensions.

There is a gallery extention forphp3.3

I will warn you its not perfect. there are some bugs, but the core seems to work ok.
The author has not had much time to work on it. i hope he can get the bugs worked out someday
