I didn't want to polute the main thread where people are asking for help, so thought i'd post some suggestions here.

- In the 'whats new' block, instead of listing each new image it can list 'new albums' instead, this is because I add alot of images and the list could be huge.

- When adding images, the ability to create static images, instead of having to create them later (a small thing)

- ability to run from a different DIR in options, this is just for sites that need for example it in /screenshots/ directory, like mine.

thats about it, looking forward to future updates, when comments and voting is implemented.

here is a new plugin_getwhatsnew_inmemoriam() function for you. just delete or comment out the current one and use this in its place. I'll be including both options in the next release, though not necessarily as an option.. Confused
PHP Formatted Code

/*
  *
  * API function provides the content of our "What's New" feed.
  * This will return album names and the number of new media items in that album
*/

function plugin_getwhatsnew_inmemoriam(){
    global $INM_TABLES, $_CONF, $LANG_INM01, $INM_CONF;

    $sql = "SELECT aid, COUNT(*) as count FROM {$INM_TABLES['media']} WHERE date >= DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL {$INM_CONF['whatsnewperioddays']} DAY ) AND status='0'" . COM_getPermSQL('and') . " GROUP BY aid ORDER BY Date DESC LIMIT 15";
    $result = DB_query($sql);
    $nrows = DB_numRows($result);
    if( $nrows == 0 ) {
        $items = $LANG_INM01[35] . '' . LB;
    } else {
        $items = array();
        for( $i = 0; $i < $nrows; $i++ ) {
            list($id, $count) = DB_fetchArray( $result );
            if (inm_hasAlbumAccess($id) >= 2){
                $name = DB_getItem($INM_TABLES['albums'], 'name', $id);
                $str = "<a href=\"{$_CONF['site_url']}/inmemoriam/browse.php?id=$id\">";
                if(!empty($name)){
                    $str .= stripslashes(substr($name,0,$INM_CONF['whatsnewnamelength']));
                } else {
                    $str .= 'album #' . $id;
                }
                $str .= '</a> (' . $count . ')';
                $items[] = $str;
            }
        }
    }
    return $items;
}

This one I won't be accommodating--at least not yet. But when I do, it will end up as an option in the general admin panel--to automatically create static images upon an addition or an approval. The static images admin page will be unaffected.

I'll be working on this one this weekend.

thanks Rick for the good suggestions.

sorry, Richard, I need to turn the music down.

replace the $name = db_getItem line with this complete one:
PHP Formatted Code
                    $name = DB_getItem($INM_TABLES['albums'], 'name', "id='$id'");

I hate to nag, but just wondering if you had any luck with the directory thing, as my site is going to 'relaunch' on monday and would be nice to have the directory I will use on that day set, but no problems, just thought it would be worth asking, feel free to shoot me Smile

yes yes, that is done--in my working copy. However, this version isn't ready for release yet. It's in pieces so it is not always working and I haven't finished testing various new features.
So I'm not going to let you have it. Leaves me speechless

but! ...You will easily be able to edit the path after install has taken place. Just edit the path in the config file, rename your dir to match and all will be well.

I've only done the public dir as the other ones never make it into the url so they shouldn't be a problem.
Hope that will be acceptable for you.

I think you misunderstand me. The relevant path info is only in my copy of the plugin. It won't be in yours until the next version is released. At that time you can edit the path and rename the dir.
