PostPosted: Thu Jun 22, 2006 9:20 am 
I quickly threw together a map in Dundjinni, with user created images, for those who need a quick outdoor encounter. There are two different types; grid and no grid.

Here is a small version of the file here:

(Hey Steel, why can't I put the image up here? Doesn't seem to work)

You can get the large file here:
http://www.rpgmapshare.com/?q=gallery&g ... ewsIndex=1

Trevor and Steel: Is this how you want to go about posting maps? We are to start posting them at RPGMapShare instead of the gallery, right?

Yeah, maps should go to rpgmapshare, might as well keep them all in the same place :)

Tokens, overlays, things like that are still very welcome on the gallery.

Hmm, not sure why it doesn't show.

Might be a setting in Gallery I haven't figured out yet.

Mr. Ice, if you have any advice I'd appreciate it.

It's because it doesn't end in .jpg, .png, or whatever. phpbb2 doesn't allow non images in the image tag (for security reasons).

For gallery2 MrIce turned on a setting that allowed the url to actually show the .jpg at the end

And yet another random outdoor map but this time with an old shack in the mix.

I don't think that would work in this case, the url doesn't point to an image, but to a page which displays the image. I've gone through all the settings I can find and don't see anything like that.

I remember it not working here either at first, but Mr. Ice did something to fix it.

Trevor may be correct.

I'm sure there's something. I just hope it's not the difference between the standaone Gallery2 and embedded.

However, for now I would just paste a link as such http://rpgmapshare.com/?q=gallery&g2_itemId=147 and not an IMG tag. The link at least lets people click through to the gallery section for that image.

I think the reason it doesn't allow it by default is because it's considered bandwidth stealing to host an image on place and link to it from others without actually visiting the hosting site.

That's probably the problem. Might try dropping in the direct url of the image.

That's the thing. Gallery isn't allowing a direct URL to the image. When I went through the setup it specifically said to place the data folder in a non-browsable location, in order to maintain Gallery's security.

The option I enabled is the URL Rewrite.

It seems to break when gallery is embedded in drupal. The rewritten urls interfere with drupal's node syntax.

phpbb specifically and deliberately ignores parameters in image links to prevent some kinds of abuse.

I'll dig around a little if I get the chance.

Ah. I figured it might be that. The embed is supposed to work with that, Drupal has something similar. But I can't get Gallery to enable URL re-write. There's an option to give the path to the embedded .htaccess file, I did that, made it writeable, and Gallery still errors on it every time. Been frustrating.

At any rate. Posting the link to the image page is preferable in most cases, because it brings people to the site to see the item, which means they may see other items while they're there.

I mentioned before that you don't get the instant gratification of having the image display in the forum, but it's just a click away. And the forum here will continue to load faster without the images linked.

I fully agree, I bowed to the pressure to embed the images before, even though I though posting links to albums or images would be better in most cases.
