Subject: FYI - Media Gallery - Random Image block not available

When you install Media Gallery in GL2 it works fine but the Random Image block will not be available.
The following install script will fail due to the new Topic feature (Multiple) as the Tid column is gone from new block structure. It's easy to fix by changing the insert statement to remove the tid and value ("all"Wink from the script (BLOCK insert) and by manually adding a record to the (your table prefix)topic_assignments table.

install script

PHP Formatted Code

    DB_query("INSERT INTO {$_TABLES['blocks']} (is_enabled, name, type, title, [b]tid[/b], blockorder, content, rdfurl, rdfupdated, onleft, phpblockfn, help, group_id, owner_id, perm_owner, perm_group, perm_members,perm_anon) VALUES (0, 'mgrandom', 'phpblock', '" . $LANG_MG00['mg_block_header'] . "', 'all', 0, '', '', 0, 1, 'phpblock_mg_randommedia','', 4, 2, 3, 3, 2, 2);",1);

    DB_query("INSERT INTO {$_TABLES['blocks']} (is_enabled, name, type, title, [b]tid[/b], blockorder, content, rdfurl, rdfupdated, onleft, phpblockfn, help, group_id, owner_id, perm_owner, perm_group, perm_members,perm_anon) VALUES (0, 'mgenroll', 'phpblock', '" . $LANG_MG00['mg_enroll_header'] . "', 'all', 0, '', '', 0, 1, 'phpblock_mg_maenroll','', 4, 2, 3, 3, 2, 0);",1);
 

my BLOCK insert statement
PHP Formatted Code

INSERT INTO cgc_blocks (is_enabled, name, type, title,  blockorder, content, rdfurl, rdfupdated, onleft, phpblockfn, help, group_id, owner_id, perm_owner, perm_group, perm_members,perm_anon) VALUES (1, 'mgrandom', 'phpblock', 'Random Image', 0, '', '', 0, 1, 'phpblock_mg_randommedia','', 4, 2, 3, 3, 2, 2);

INSERT INTO cgc_blocks (is_enabled, name, type, title,  blockorder, content, rdfurl, rdfupdated, onleft, phpblockfn, help, group_id, owner_id, perm_owner, perm_group, perm_members,perm_anon) VALUES (0, 'mgenroll', 'phpblock', 'Album Enrollment', 0, '', '', 0, 1, 'phpblock_mg_maenroll','', 4, 2, 3, 3, 2, 0);
 

my TOPIC_ASSIGMENTS insert
PHP Formatted Code

INSERT INTO cgc_topic_assignments (`tid` ,`type` ,`id` ,`inherit` ,`tdefault` ) VALUES ('All', 'block', '16', '0', '0'),

INSERT INTO cgc_topic_assignments (`tid` ,`type` ,`id` ,`inherit` ,`tdefault` ) VALUES ('All', 'block', '18', '0', '0');
 

(16 & 18 are the block ids from the BLOCK table)


Hope this Helps (someone)

Thanks for the fix MartinD.

I know the Media Gallery is being worked on at the moment so hopefully in the near future it will be released with the fix and some new features.
