General Info:

Where/How can I download Gallery?

Gallery is available from http://gallery.sourceforge.net/

Where/How can I download phpBB2?

PhpBB2 is available from http://www.phpbb.com/

Where/How can I download the Gallery->phpBB2 Integration Mod?

The Integration Mod is available here from Snailsource.com although you do need to be registered to download.

When will the next version be released?

New releases usually coincide with releases by either the phpBB2 or Gallery coding team.

What features does the current version have?

Check this page for feature info.

Can I suggest new features to include?

Until version Gallery 2.0 has been finished any feature requests are not being taken. This is because Gallery and phpBB2 are so different that relatively simple features are often overly complex to impliment.

What is the difference between a BUG and a feature request?

If it doesn't do what the feature and forum says it should then it's a bug... If your sentence can be started with a "I wish it would.." or "It'd be nice if.." then it's likely to be a feature request.

Is Gallery->PhpBB2 Mod a standalone script?

NO. This mod cannot be run without both Gallery and phpBB2 being installed as per the instructions provided for the MOD.


Specific Bugs/Problems:

ERROR: "Sorry, you can't access this file directly..."

This message appears when you either try to link directly to modules.php with no arguments provided to the file.
You are using an older version of Gallery than 1.3.2 and the Mod version 1.4.1
(Older versions did not support the php.ini setting for "register_globals = off" or a user turning off cookies in their browser. These are now supported in mod version 1.4.1 or later)

Out of Memory Errors

Version 1.3.2 of Gallery provides a more streamlined use of memory than older versions so if you are experiencing this error then you're advised to upgrade ASAP (don't forget to update your mod version as well)

CSS styles for phpBB2 not being used.

To use the CSS styles you need to add this somewhere between <head> and </head> in your overall_header.tpl template file...

<link rel="stylesheet" href="modules/gallery/css/embedded_style.css.default" type="text/css">

How do I install Gallery->phpBB2 Integration?

If you have installed this mod successfully in the past then you simply need to
a) Check that there's a mod update to cover the new Gallery & PhpBB2 versions
b) Update your phpBB2 first (if there is an update)
c) Update your Gallery (as per the instructions for that version)
d) Test that both phpBB2 and Gallery work independently
e) Upload the new mod files a per the installation instructions and make any new changes to the phpBB2 files as required.
