Add-on for XenForo 1.0.0 (and possible newer versions :))
User Albums v.1.0.0 Beta 7


This is a beta version of a simple User Albums add-on. I'm still working on it. So you can use it for testing, but I recommend to not use it on production servers.​

Users can create albums, upload images, add comments. Albums can be public and private. Private albums are visible only for album owner, moderators (if they have permissions) and users, who knows an "access hash", which is available from the album URL.​

For now, there is no inline moderation tools, nice javascripts and sorting. But I'm planning to add this things later :)

  1. Upload all files from the upload folder in the archive. Be careful, some FTP clients can replace contents on the server.
  2. From the ACP install the add-on using xml file from the archive.
  3. Make sure, that add-on installation process has created folders for thumbnails and images and that folders are writable. If you can't find such foldres, you need to create them manually. Those folders are:
    • data/xfru/useralbums/thumbnails
    • data/xfru/useralbums/sprites
    • internal_data/xfru/useralbums/images
  4. Set permissions for the user groups. Please, do not allow guests to upload images :)
  5. Change options if you want
Upgrading from beta 1, 2, 4 to beta 5
  1. Upload files from the archive to your server and upgrade add-on from ACP using xml file from archive.
  2. Check if additional folder was created - data/xfru/useralbums/sprites. If no - manually create it and set permissions to 777
  3. In ACP - Tools run all tasks under [xfr] User Albums Tools
If you've got error while upgrading add-on to beta 5, you'll need to drop column sprite_hash from the xfr_useralbum table and column comment_count from the xfr_useralbum_image table before new upgrade attempt. If you have problems with this upgrade, contact me via PC and describe your error.
