Default ShaCkeR module for Gars


Ok here we go.
what this module will do is transform your remote image storage into attachment like storage. These days everyone hosts screens, images on imageshack, supload or other remote image host providers.

Obviously saving BW. But the prob is that if you have the kinda images you think are unique or are just the kind you want only registered members to see, you have a problem. Cos all these images you store are completely visible for all.

Here is where ShaCkeR will help you.

1) It will first up give your users a proper box for entering and dumping all your thumb codes. Whats more it will to a large extent(though not completely) ensure that they enter the thumbs only and not full sized images or bad codes. If they do enter something like that, it will be ignored

2) It will give you the admin, power to decide in which sections and module sets you want the full sized image codes be shown to guests. Yep.. the user will enter the full thumbnail code, but inside gars, you can decide if guests are shown the full sizzed code or not

3) and ofcourse it gives you power to organize the thumbs properly with title.

In admincp there are two settings
1) break after -> after how many images you want to line break and start images from next row
2) whether to show full sized image code to guests or not.

How to install
1) First create a template named 'GARS_shacker' without quotes.
in it paste the code i have given in the file attached.
2) Upload the contents of the shacker folder in archive in same format into geek/gars/mods folder
3) go to modules and register a new module
in it enter:
title: ShaCkeR
dropdown: select shacker.php
in the box below enter: GARS_mod_container,GARS_shacker

Now just go to any module sets, where you want this enabled... and put the module(preferably at bottom or top, don't put at sides.
edit the settings of how many images per row and if to show image code to guests...

And bingo... you are done.


the code will work for any provider which generates screenshot code in the format

HTML Code:
[url=XXX][IMG]XYZ[/IMG][/url] or

screenshots attached.

i don't think there are major bugs but we will see you never know with php do you

Btw, i haven't added the code for caching. haven't got the hang of caching so geek, i need a bit of help and update your module tutorial mate

Is it possible to change the image hosting service so I can host the pics myself ?

you can use any service provider that generates the code of thumbnails.
