You heard it here first!
I am currently sending out a few copies of GL's latest media gallery plug-in for testing. I have a few testers already so no need to volunteer--yet.

This gallery, entitled Inmemoriam (call it whatever you like), is a feature rich gallery alternative that integrates beautifully with Geeklog because it was designed within GL's framework.

Subscribe to this thread to read the reviews and to keep up on the latest project developments.

Well after seeing a preview of this baby, it already has my vote.

It's not my place to give anything away - but Inmemoriam IS CERTAINLY what we've all been waiting for. Trust me. You will not be disappointed.

I am so impressed that I'll be dumping my old galleries on all my sites in favour of this plugin as soon as a mature version is available.

I can hardly wait Excellent work as usual Machinari

a second release was just made!
These guys and/or girls are really keeping me on my toes. My list of fixes/additions/subtractions looks like it is breathing as it gets shorter and then longer and then shorter.. you get the point.

This release saw a great many minor bug fixes and hopefully a major one as well. Autotags, RSS, watermark, and much more has been made functional.
...a bit to go yet, but it'll be worth the wait, I'm sure. I have to say, though I really shouldn't cuz it's like voting for my own stuff, but... It really looks good!

I have to say (and since it's not my stuff I can say it :-p) I agree fully. It is really coming along nicely and very quickly!

I look forward to adding it to www.jtravis.us

Hopefully it will include a batch import function that automatically creates thumbnails and medium sized previews, so I can easily move all my photos from the current photo gallery to this one.

The third release just went out for testing
But, Howy Cwap! the tarball doubled in size and i'm wondering what i did wrong...

but anyway, we're getting close(er). Though you won't get to see all the fantastic features without any admin access, etc., you can catch a sneek preview at alfiegeorge.com. there are only about 6 images up and no captions or anything, but you'll get a small idea anyway. Don't use IE, you'll miss out.

Thanks for the awesome photo gallery plugin. Thanks for the hard work. The plugin installed easily and adding albums and photos are a simple process. Although, it would be even better if we were able to upload many photos at once in some kind of batch process rather than having to click on "add another file" many times. If I've got 50 photos I need to upload, then I'll be at my computer for a long time.

Take a moment... read the usage document.

This gallery plugin will scan your album dirs for any allowed media that you have uploaded bulk, e.g., via FTP. It's all in the "usage" doc.

Maaaaaan, you really thought about a lot of good stuff when you made this.

And implemented it as well...

not sure if this is the right place to ask for support...

I have a little trouble to make it work.
The installation gives my this error:
Warning: main(Image/Transform.php): failed to open stream: can't find file or directory in /home/gekownet/plugins/inmemoriam/image-functions.inc on line 31

when I change this path to
$_CONF['path'].'system/pear/Image/Transform.php
I don't get the error, but it looks like it isn't the best trick, because I can't see any image nor any thumbnail

Any idea what I could have done wrong?
The pear stuff is in the pear directory, btw.

my bad..
for those of you who have $_CONF['have_pear']=true the path to Geeklog's pear directory will not make it into PHP's include path. I assume, geKow, that you have $_CONF['have_pear']=true.
add this bit of code (modified slightly from lib-common.php) into your Inmemoriam functions.inc file (anywhere near the top is fine):
/*
*quick fix for geeklog's pear path not included in php.ini
*/
if ($_CONF['have_pear']){
    $curPHPIncludePath = ini_get( 'include_path' );
    if( defined( 'PATH_SEPARATOR' )){
        $separator = PATH_SEPARATOR;
    } else {
        // prior to PHP 4.3.0, we have to guess the correct separator ...
        $separator = ';';
        if( strpos( $curPHPIncludePath, $separator ) === false ){
            $separator = ':';
        }
    }
    if( ini_set( 'include_path', $_CONF['path_pear'] . $separator . $curPHPIncludePath ) === false ){
        COM_errorLog( 'ini_set failed - there may be problems using the PEAR image_transform class.', 1);
    }
}


Let me know as soon as you can if that turns out to be the issue. that acually might cause a conflict, but I can't tell cuz I'm not on my box atm.

Hi
I have $_CONF['have_pear']=false, and when I try to install it also says:
Warning: main(Image/Transform.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
My Geeklog version is 1.3.11sr1, php version is 4.3.10
Any ideas on what's happening?
Thanks

midiman, did you follow the install instructions? they detail how your are to place various files into your Geeklog's pear directory. those are the files that cannot be found according to your error.

By: midiman

Yes, I did. It seems that there is some problem with include path, cause I also get the following message:
Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'Image/Transform.php' (include_path='/usr/www/users/controlt/beginning/privado/datos_foro/system/pear/:.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /usr/www/users/controlt/beginning/privado/datos_foro/plugins/inmemoriam/image-functions.inc on line 31
Do you know why it is appending :.:/usr/local/lib/php to the right path?

Thank you very much

that bit on the right is normal... if your path to pear is set, as it seems to be, then check your directory layout re the pear files included with Inemoriam.
it should look like this:
system/pear/Image/Transfrom.php
system/pear/Image/Transform/Driver/
system/pear/Console/



ensure that the following is not how you have placed the files:
system/pear/PEAR/Image/Transform.php
system/pear/PEAR/Image/Transfrom/Driver/
system/pear/PEAR/Console/



let me know how that goes

Ok, there was a issue with permissions of folder system/pear/Console/ and its contents. I thought I had changed them, but I didn't. Now everything is working as expected.
Thanks for your help and for this great piece of software.

update: NetPBM as well as ImageMagick are now functional along with the GD lib and will make it into the next release of Inmemoriam.
Whatever your Geeklog config has $_CONF['image_lib'] set to, that's what Inmemoriam will use.
