THE IMAGE RESIZER for vBulletin 3.7 v1.2.8
Powered with:
Lytebox / Highslide / Lightview / Slimbox / Thickbox
Floatbox / Shadowbox / Greybox / Roebox / AwesomeBox

based on nCode Image Resizer for vb3.6.x

What does it do
This plugin enables you to automatically resize every user-posted external
image, posted in threads, vb's blogs or even vb's albums (and group's pictures),
and in signatures (optional), which is larger than given dimensions.
Also, give (optional in admincp) options to the users, to set their own preferences
for resizing.

The Image Resizer acts in:
- External images embed in posts.
- Attachs images embed in posts.
- External images embed in blogs.
- Images in Albums / Group's pictures (optional).
- Signatures (optional) with a different width/height setting.

And the resize methods are:
- No resizing
- Enlargement in the same document
- Enlargement in the same window (replacing the forum thread document)
- Enlargement in a new window
- Enlargement using Lytebox
- Enlargement using Highslide
- Enlargement using Lightview
- Enlargement using Slimbox
- Enlargement using Thickbox
- Enlargement using Floatbox
- Enlargement using Shadowbox
- Enlargement using Greybox
- Enlargement using Roebox
- Enlargement using AwesomeBox

It also adds an information bar when not using Lytebox/Highslide/etc (which is not
displayed when the image is too small) giving information about the original
dimensions and filesize.
Filesize is only supported on Internet Explorer, other browsers don't reveal
this information through javascript.

See the AdminCP Screenshot below.

Installation / Upgrade
1. Upload the contents of the "clientscript" folder to your vBulletin's clientscript folder.
You will have:

2. Import "product-tcattd_extimageresizer.xml" in your vBulletin forum. Enter your AdminCP
and go to Plugins & Products -> Manage Products. Click on [Add/Import Product] and
refer to the XML file.
Allow Overwrite -> Yes.

3. You're done.

* Upgrading.
If you're using old (but great!) nCode Image Resizer for vb3.6.x or Jase2 port
for vb3.7 (the reason for keep this update; is a great mod, even Jase2 port is cool)
then you need to uninstall your old version first from your vBulletin's
Product Manager.
Then, perform an installation from the beginning... and configure it
in your AdminCP ;)

Version history (changelog)
v1.2.8 (August 27th, 2008)
- Updated. Highslide from 3.3.22 to 4.0.4
- Added. Option to downsize attached images with no thumbnail.
- Fixed. A problem with highslide image path in forums with vb's files
in the server root. Before some installs take the paths well, some not.
Changed the way it load the CSS into the highslide template (just path vars)
to fix that, using vboptions->bburl for full path.

To upgrade you need to:
- upload (and overwrite) the folder /clientscript/highslide/
Then, re-import the new 1.2.8 product (allow overwrite = yes).

v1.2.7 (August 26th, 2008)
- Added. Option to exclude certain styles from apply all the image-resizer thing.
That way you can exclude you "mobile" style (mobile style hack @ vb.org)
and not overload that with all the javascripts from lightboxes.
Down side: images in those excluded styles will not be resized.
- Added. CSS Class for resized images. You can easily customize your needs for HOW
to display a downsized image, borders, spacers, and many others only using
the defined CSS Class.
CSS class for img tags are:
tcattdimgresizer ->normal IMG tag
tcattdimglink -> IMGLINK tag
- Fixed. Proper fieldset in UserCP options for Image Resizer. Now really fixed (i hope).
- Fixed. Using "resize in same window" for signatures not downsize well the image
after user click to go back from full size to small size.
- Fixed. Not a fix really, but implemented the downsize of image attachments in vbadvanced
news module. I'm not using vbadv anymore, that's why i don't "see" that before.
- Fixed/Added. Fix the Not Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
Added an option to choose a new javascript metod to resize images, that's
100% valid. Is optional, so you can keep the old and nice Ncode mode,
or change it to the new one.

To upgrade you need to:
- upload (and overwrite) the file /clientscript/ncode_imageresizer.js
- upload the new file /clientscript/tcattd_imageresizer.js
Then, re-import the new 1.2.7 product (allow overwrite = yes).
Check (and re-save) your AdminCP options.

1.2.6 (July 28th, 2008)
- Added. New autocreated on install BBcode: [IMGLINK]
This BBcode will "solve" the know issue number one, about embed images with a link
tag arround them to use as button for links.
For more details, refer to the AdminCP option and associated Help on that item.
- Added. Optional resizing of the new BBcode [IMGLINK]. If yes, images posted with
the new BBcode will be downsized, but no lightbox will be attached to them, so
links with [url] still works and don't mess up your layout too.
- Added. A new option in AdminCP to "allow only change dimensions" in users profiles options.
So, now you have: allow all options, allow resize mode selecion, allow resize mode
selection and change dimensions, allow only change dimensions.
For more details, refer to the AdminCP option and associated Help on that item.
- Fixed. LightWindow was integrated in v1.2.5, but the option-item in the admincp was
missing. LOL
Working now.
- Fixed. Highslide image paths (css don't work properly and can't display loader and fullexpand images)
- Fixed. The layout of the UserCP -> Profile Options for The Image Resizer (now a proper "fieldset" is set)
- Updated. Highslide to v3.3.22
- Updated. Slimbox to v1.64

To upgrade you need to:
- upload (and overwrite) the new folder /clientscript/highslide/
- upload (and overwrite) the new folder /clientscript/slimbox/
- upload (if missing) the folder /clientscript/lightwindow/

resizing and Album's image resizing. Check the AdminCP options for configuration.
- Added. New option to exclude usergroups (by IDs) from Signature resizing.
- Added. An option to disable the Resizing of pictures in vb's albums / group's pictures.
Some people don't like and don't use that.
- Clean. Cleaned up "the function" for search/replace.
- Fixed. Removed the ugly border from the images in Albums and Group's Pictures
(forgot to put a border="0" in the img tag for the Lightbox's link).

To upgrade you need to upload all the new /clientscript/ files
and folders again. Overwrite the javascripts! (yes, overwrite the ncode_imageresizer.js).

When you turn that on, all default vb's Lightbox will be replaced
with Lytebox/Highslide, only if you are using one of those two
options as your "Default Resize Mode". Now, your attached images
will be open with Lytebox/Highslide.
Old references to Lightbox javascript are hidden (Set $show['lightbox']
to false).

To upgrade, just import the new 1.2.3 product (allow overwrite = yes).
No need to re-upload the files.

Just one new CSS definition will be added (when using Lytebox/Highslide)
If you customized this template, revert it to reflect the changes.

More Details
See the included readme.txt for more details, configuration, changelog (from nCode vb3.6.x) and other things (copyrights and license info for Highslide / Lytebox / etc).

Thanks to Spleasure for the permission to use his javascript and work.
I made another mod, more minimalistic, for resize external posted images
in several vbulletin website that i manage. But my javascript skills are
nor really the best, so i was using some other JS functions that i found
online. But nothing like nCode's one.

So he gave me permission to use his JS, and to use the first fork I did
from nCode's plugin-product for vbulletin 3.6.x. So i drop my own
minimalistic version of the image-resize plugin-product, polished the fork (put options and more friendly for admins), and make a
"second version" of nCode's one.

And this is it: nCode Image Resizer -> The Image Resizer.
Now powered with Lytebox, Highslide and many more! (optional)

Will be given by me... and all the nice and beautiful community here at vb.org that is using this mod and be kind enough to help each other.
I have a work, a family and a small Cat that takes a lot of milk, so don't spec an immediate response for every problem. Bugs will be solved. Suggestions could be taken or not.
And obviously: don't ask or request things if you don't mark this mod as installed ;)
