  • Eliana Tamerin: @andy, the phpBB folks had (at one point, not sure how it is now) a specific set of rules you had to follow to get support. Anyone not found doing so would have their topic ignored.

Here is the code from my sources/portalblocks.php

from the start of attachment image, to the start of the next block.

Code: [Select]
function sp_attachmentImage($parameters, $id, $return_parameters = false)
{
global $boarddir, $txt, $color_profile;

$block_parameters = array(
'limit' => 'int',
'direction' => 'select',
'disablePoster' => 'check',
'disableDownloads' => 'check',
'disableLink' => 'check',
);

if ($return_parameters)
return $block_parameters;

$limit = empty($parameters['limit']) ? 5 : (int) $parameters['limit'];
$direction = empty($parameters['direction']) ? 0 : 1;
$type = array('jpg', 'png', 'gif', 'bmp');
$showPoster = empty($parameters['disablePoster']);
$showDownloads = empty($parameters['disableDownloads']);
$showLink = empty($parameters['disableLink']);

$items = ssi_recentAttachments($limit, $type, 'array');

if (empty($items))
{
echo '
', $txt['error_sp_no_attachments_found'];
return;
}

$colorids = array();
foreach ($items as $item)
$colorids[] = $item['member']['id'];

if (!empty($colorids) && sp_loadColors($colorids) !== false)
{
foreach ($items as $k => $p)
{
if (!empty($color_profile[$p['member']['id']]['link']))
$items[$k]['member']['link'] = $color_profile[$p['member']['id']]['link'];
}
}

echo '
<table class="sp_auto_align">', $direction ? '
<tr>' : '';

foreach ($items as $item)
{
  echo !$direction ? '
<tr>' : '', '
<td>
<div class="sp_image smalltext">', ($showLink ? '
<a href="' . $item['file']['href'] . '">' . $item['file']['filename'] . '</a><br />' : ''), '
<a href="' . $item['topic']['href'] . '">', $item['file']['image']['thumb'], '</a> <br />', ($showDownloads ? '
' . $txt['downloads'] . ': ' . $item['file']['downloads'] . '<br />' : ''), ($showPoster ? '
' . $txt['posted_by'] . ': ' . $item['member']['link'] : ''), '
</div>
</td>', !$direction ? '
</tr>' : '';
}

echo $direction ? '
</tr>' : '', '
</table>';
}

function sp_attachmentRecent($parameters, $id, $return_parameters = false)

Havnt looked in depth at what we changed, but that does exactly what it should, if you click on the image you are taken to the post in question.

You can view it live on the myhomepage.

I am not quite certain why this failed, and have not had time to test.
Have you looked at the HTML for that page to see where it has gone wrong?

Perhaps it would be best to abandon that supplied subroutine, and go back to the general idea
Code: (find in portalblocks.php) [Select]
$item['file']['image']['link']
Code: (replace in portalblocks.php) [Select]
'<a href="',  $item['topic']['href'],  '"><img src="', $item['file']['image']['thumb'],  '"></a>'

It seems to me this should still work, even if there are errors in the subroutine I supplied.

My apologies for supplying bad code.
This removes the images from the block and replaces them with links to the topic, is that what you intended?

$item['file']['image']['thumb'] is the image that is shown.
Indeed, the link is to the topic.

That was the request from the OP -- to show the image, but link to the topic.

What would you like to show, and link to?

As the purpose of the module is to show the image I would like it to remain so but the image to be linked to the topic.
Thanks.

I posted my code two posts up. If look on my portal and click the recent images pictures (left hand side down a bit), they do exactly that, take you to the post in question.

And im using the code i posted. (unless there is more code i have changed somewhere else :S)

Thanks Velorooms, I had tried your code and just got white pages.

Any chance you can post your portalblocks.php file so I can do a side by side comparison? Or even just use yours?

Thanks.

mine are attached for both 2.3.4 and 2.3.5

worth noting i have made some other adjustments to portal blocks to change a  few things. If you need to view differences try using examdiff which is a really good text file comparer.

I am wondering if i made a change somewhere other than in portalblocks.php I know it took me a while to figure it out. I really need to keep records. :S

DONT use my php file though. its heavily modified, for instance i have png post icons rather than gifs, theres a fair few non standard bits in there. Will mess things up. Ive isolated the line in the post below.

Just looking through myself.

2.3.5 Portalblocks.php has this line

Code: [Select]
<a href="' . $item['file']['href'] . '">' . $item['file']['filename'] . '</a><br />' : ''), '
', $item['file']['image']['link'], '<br />', ($showDownloads ? '


I have

Code: [Select]
<a href="' . $item['file']['href'] . '">' . $item['file']['filename'] . '</a><br />' : ''), '
<a href="' . $item['topic']['href'] . '">', $item['file']['image']['thumb'], '</a> <br />', ($showDownloads ? '

what i appear to have done is surround the image thumb with a href linking to the topic

<a href="' . $item['topic']['href'] . '" 

Before the second line of code

and </a>  before the <br>

basically surrounded the thumbnail by a href.. i just need to work out if i specified 'topic' elsewhere in the file.

Yes, that did the trick and was all that was needed to make the images in the block linked to the topic, exactly what I needed. many thanks.
