Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
Group DevelopersGroup Particularly helpful Moodlers
Hello Fellow Moodlers,

I have finished a beta version of the Moodle Gallery Module (MGM), which embeds Gallery2 into Moodle big grin. This module has been developed at Humboldt State University with the guidance of Michael Penney. You can find the code in contrib/gallery. Please refer to the README.txt for installation instructions and to the module's help files for some guidance in using the module.

Major Features:
  • Each MGM instance is linked to its own Gallery2 Album (automatically upon creation). While viewing a MGM instance, it appears as if it has it's own top level (or root) Gallery2 album to which one can add sub-albums, images, comments, etc.
  • When a MGM instance is deleted, so is its linked Gallery2 album and all its content.
  • User Synchronization: Users are created and updated on the fly.
  • Group Synchronization on the fly.
  • Permission Handling: MGM uses Gallery2's permission system to restrict the view of albums. This way, sneaky users cannot peer into albums that belong to other courses wink. Also, permissions for Teachers are set by Moodle admins in the MGM module settings screen and permissions for Students can be set for each MGM instance (the Student default permissions can be set in the MGM settings screen as well). Teachers can only give permissions to students which they themselves have. Example use: Allow students to view the album but not add comments.
  • MGM instances can even be backed-up and restored! The backup procedure copies over Gallery2's album, sub-albums, images, and comments (including all details associated with each item) that are related to a specific MGM instance. Restore will then recreate the before mentioned items to their original, backed-up state into Gallery2; creating a new MGM instance.
To do list:
  • Migrate the Gallery2 bread crumb trail to Moodle's bread crumb trail.
  • Create a Moodle-like theme for Gallery2 (hopefully someone who is talented in theme building can tackle this).
  • And... open to suggestions.
Cheers and Enjoy,
Mark

PS: I'm guessing that you will be able to download the Moodle Gallery Module from here after a nightly build of the contrib files.

Excellent news Mark smile

Was about to post a link on the Gallery2 forum but I guess I don't have to huh . . . seen that pic before!

I have Gallery2 in Moodle at the moment and the integration is what I have been hanging out for. Thanks for your work on this, will give it a try asap.

Thank you so much, Mark. This is terrific news. We will get this up and running before our student exchange this summer.

It is especially helpful that students can upload pics. Just wondering: Can we set it up so that teachers can moderate these uploads to approve or disapprove submissions?

The Gallery Module must be configured before it can be used.
Please go to Admin → Modules → Gallery Settings to configure the Gallery Module.

Hmmmm... Having trouble finding that path. What would it typically be?

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hi Art

Had a bit of a stumble on that one too. Basically it's looking for the relative path from the module to your Gallery install so you have to tell it to go backwards for a bit using ../

For example:

your moodle install is at:
/home/YOURSITE/public_html/training

and you have installed Gallery2 in another directory:
/home/YOURSITE/public_html/connect/gallery2

the gallery module ends up at:
/home/YOURSITE/public_html/training/mod/gallery/

and you have to tell it the relative directory from that location.

So you use ../ to go back a bit first, ending up with:
../../../connect/gallery2

Basically replace the common parts of the url between the two locations with ../

Hope that makes more sense than it looks at this time of the morning having just got back from a birthday party!

Good luck.

I had my gallery installation in the root folder of my website so its path was
../../../gallery.

I found I had to rename the folder in the language folder to en (my defaul language) to get it to install correctly.

I get no errors on install and I've set up the module without incident but I get this message whenever I try to add a gallery in a course not matter how many times I run through the gallery settings.

"The Gallery Module must be configured before it can be used.
Please go to Admin → Modules → Gallery Settings to configure the Gallery Module."

Anyone else had this problem?

This is great addition. Many Thanks to the developers.

Hi David,

Did you try the "Check Relative Path ..." button in Gallery Settings?  You are getting that error because the Moodle Gallery Module cannot find Gallery2's embed.php.

Cheers,
Mark

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the reply.

Strangely enough I did check the relative path and had it come out correct. I've even tried a new installation of gallery and have tried deleting and reinstalling the module several times.
The setup goes without errors
I still get the same message when I try to add a gallery in a course.



I'll keep trying things. I'm in 1.5.3 BTW.

I can't wait to play with it. I'm already thinking of uses!

Hi again David,

This is very odd. I just tried on a 1.5.3 install and it all worked fine. Perhaps the config variable is not getting set properly.  Try printing out $CFG->gallery_embedpath at the top of your /mod/gallery/mod.html.  Use this to print it:
notify("Gallery embedpath: ".$CFG->gallery_embedpath);
Cheers and good luck,
Mark

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hi Mark,

It prints out the directory when I add that line. The relative part seems to be correct, but the dirroot part seems to be strangely missing the slashes to divide the directories.
It prints:
Gallery embedpath: C:dir1wwwrootmoodle/mod/gallery/../../gallery/embed.php

when you would think that

C:\dir1\wwwroot\moodle/mod/gallery/../../gallery/embed.php

would be correct.

The gallery directory is indeed in my moodle directory, and as I said, the path check comes out correct in settings.

I'm afraid I don't know enough PHP to see where this is coming from or even to tell whether it is the problem.

Thanks so much for you help.

Oh!  Well that makes perfect sense wink  The backslashes (\) are removed from the path when it gets stored in the database.  I have a fix for it in CVS, but you will have to wait for the nightly build till you can download it (or just checkout the CVS).

Great reporting David!

Hello Mark

I have recently been looking at gallery and seem to be experiencing the problem that David has...

I had my gallery installation in the root folder of my website so its path was
../../../gallery.

I get no errors on install and I've set up the module without incident but I get this message whenever I try to add a gallery in a course not matter how many times I run through the gallery settings.

If I have read your response correctly, I believe that there is fix in the CVS. I know it was some time ago but is there a particular file or snippet of code I need to replace.

Thanks in advance

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hi Mark,
I have Moodle (version 1.6.3) and Gallery2 installed on localhost (Windows XP) in the following directories:
Moodle:
C:\Apache2\htodocs\moodle
Gallery2:
C:\Apache2\htdocs\gallery2
Gallery module is in:
C:\Apache2\htdocs\moodle\mod\gallery
Path to your Moodle directory, relative to the root of your website: The check path says that it is correct.

But I have a problem with the relative path which I have set as:
../../gallery2
When I click on check relative path, I get:
Path test failed. Could not find Gallery's embed.php
Path used: C:\Apache2\htdocs\moodle/mod/gallery/../../gallery2/embed.php

What should I put? Or which files should I modify to make it work?
Thanks

This is more of a Gallery2 feature issue.  I'm not sure if Gallery2 has an approval queue, but if it does, that is how you would want to accomplish this.

I've installed Gallery2 and the moodle module, both without any problems. However, I can't create any galleries in moodle. When I hit 'Save Changes' on the 'Adding a new Gallery page' I get the following message:

Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /****/moodle/mod/gallery/locallib.php on line 111

Line 111 in that file is part of the gallery_map_user_to_gallery function. I've tried using a different (moodle) user account to create the gallery, but that gives me the error message:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: iserror() in /****/moodle/mod/gallery/locallib.php on line 111

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the bug report.  This section of the code has caused me a lot of problems angry.  I'll have to do some testing before a solution can be developed.  One question to you though, do any users exist in your Gallery2 database?  If a user with the same user name exists in both databases, then that might cause a problem.  But, like I said, I need to do some more testing on this.

Cheers,
Mark

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hi Mark

Same issue as Jim here.

Only user in my install of Gallery2 is "admin". This is an old install of Gallery2 (as in prior to your module) that I inserted as a resource in Moodle and was waiting for the integration side of things.

If you then go to admin: config: modules it shows the gallery being present (i.e. it says I have 4 now!) although no links on any pages.

Gallery2 and Moodle 1.5.3+ both updated via CVS yesterday.

Hope you manage to figure it out without too much problem.

regards
H

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hi Mark,

The Gallery2 database has only 1 user, the admin, which does have the same username as the admin user on my moodle test site, that was what gave me the notion to try to create a gallery in moodle from a different user account.

The Gallery2 (v2.1) install was a fresh install to try with the moodle module. I was trying with a 1.5.2 moodle installation.

Good luck & HTH,

Jim

Ah-hah!  Sounds like both of you are using the latest version of Gallery2 (2.1 aka Blackjack).  I have not tested the Moodle Gallery Module with this version of Gallery2.  I suspect that it does not work at all sad because of this line in the release announcement: "We've made many changes to the core framework".  I read that and said, "Awe crap!".  The integration between Moodle and Gallery2 is rather extreme (aka, I use a lot of Gallery's core API).  I suspect that something has changed to break this integration.  The error regarding the undefined function isError() is extremely worrisome considering it is a very basic function that I make 38 calls to.  If they changed that, who knows what else they changed sad.

For right now, definitely use the latest of Gallery 2.0.  I currently do not know when or if we are going to support Gallery 2.1 Blackjack mixed.

Cheers,
Mark

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration

Hi Jim and Harry,

I'm still thinking that this is an issue with Gallery2.1 Blackjack.  Harry, your CVS checkout is linked to the latest of Gallery2 development branch, which means you get Gallery2.1 code automatically (AKA there is no distinction between Gallery2.0 and 2.1 in CVS).  The main reason why I'm thinking this is because of the undefined function of isError() which I have never gotten in all my coding and debugging experience with this module.  If this problem still exists with a fresh install of Gallery2.0.4 found here, then I'll look into it more.  But right now debugging is almost impossible since Jim has Blackjack and Harry has a CVS version.

The only other problem that I can think of is that files are not getting included correctly in Gallery2 or in the Moodle Module Gallery.  What files system are you both using (like Windows, Unix, etc)?

Hopefully we can get this problem resolved shortly smile, cheers,
Mark

Hi,

I've got gallery 2.0.4 installed now.  I can create galleries OK now, but I can't view them!  I can create a gallery and album from the 'Add an activity' menu, and then upload images.  However, I can't see the image thumbnails in the album after I've uploaded the images. 

Also, once I leave an album after creating it, it cannot reopen it. I can get as far as the page that says ' This is the main page of your Gallery', and lists the album names, but clicking on an album just gets me a 404. sad

Hi Jim,

The image thumbnails is a Gallery2 issue.  Do you have GD running in php or some other image processing tool that Gallery2 can use?

For the 404 error, check to make sure that the URL makes sense.  Something in the Moodle Gallery Module's init parameters could be wrong, which could break the urls.  If you can, please post your them.

Cheers,
Mark

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hi Mark,

I have the same problem as Jim. After I dowloaded the new version from contrib, I was able to create new galleries, but I get a 404 when I click on the images I add.

The url it looks for is
/moodledir/mod/gallery/v/moodle_1/

which doesn't seem right since usually the url in gallery points to the directory for the gallery installation, while this points to the moodle mod.
When I manually change the url to to /moodledir/moodlegal/v/moodle_1 (the folder of my gallery installation, I get the right type of page, but a permission denied error (since it is set to embed only, I suppose).
I've verified that the image is actually in the storage folder defined within gallery that the v/moodle_1/ is supposed to point to.

Thanks again for all the work on this. It is going to be great to have!

My URLs are the same as David's. I know GD is running on the server, as moodle uses it for users' avatars. May be that Gallery2 isn't setup right. I'll look into that (I've actually never used gallery/galler2 before).

/moodledir/mod/gallery/v/moodle_1/

Oh boy, that is not right at all. An example URL on my machine looks like this (when viewing a picture):

http://mymoodlesite/moodldir/mod/gallery/view.php?id=2&g2_view=core.ShowItem&g2_itemId=15

Hmmm... I wonder if the embedPath is incorrect. I have attempted to generate this on the fly, but perhaps that is a bad call.

You can try this out, find the following code in gallery/locallib.php (around line #55):


function gallery_init($cmid = 0) {
global $CFG, $USER;

require_once($CFG->gallery_embedpath);

$initparams = array('embedUri' => 'view.php?id='.$cmid,
'embedPath' => str_replace('http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], '', $CFG->wwwroot.'/mod/gallery'),
'relativeG2Path' => $CFG->gallery_relativepath,
'loginRedirect' => $CFG->wwwroot.'/login/index.php',
'activeUserId' => $USER->id);

$ret = GalleryEmbed::init($initparams);


Replace the value for embedPath with the following (The following would work with my example URL at the beginning of this post):

'embedPath' => '/moodledir/mod/gallery',

If you like, give that a whirl. Regardless, I'll look into this more tomorrow.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 

Hi Mark, I have a rather similar problem here. I am able to create new galleries as activities, but the gallery2 module generates incorrect urls. For example, The gallery breadcrumb at the top of the gallery page is linked to

http://moodle.mayhemsquare.com/mod/gallery/v/?g2_highlightId=19

my theory is that part of the string was wrongly generated - that /v/?g2 part of the string ought to be /view.php?... I think you would know better where that /v/ thing comes from.

The strange thing is, the links are wrongly created for some urls, but not others. Also, this error only comes up for the installation on my web server - my local installation for testing worked perfectly well.

Hope you can patch these up, this is a really great module for moodle!

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 

Hello,

I've tried the above change and also I've installed the 2.04 version, I also configured the gallery at admin/module.php?module=gallery. Check path: the message is "Path is correct".

But after I tried to add the activity, the action to start a new album won't start. It got hanged and a blank IE page came up. The URL is http://yourmoodle site/moodle directory/course/mod.php. When until you refresh the IE, it started a moodle page with an error message: No action was specified.

When I go back to the admin/modules.php, I saw that the Gallery has just increased ONE gallery. But I couldn't find the gallery. Now I tried 5 times and I have 5 galleries recorded on the page: admin/modules.php.

Does anyone have the same problem?Have I missed something that I should configure?

I continued to try and use the URL like this: http://yoursite.com/moodle directory/mod/gallery/main.php

I felt relieved at this page: because I can do all the configuration now and installed the gallery 2.

After I went through all the steps: when I start the main.php again:

it comes up with is screen:

Error

An error has occurred.

Back to the Gallery

Error Detail -

Error (ERROR_PERMISSION_DENIED) :
  • in main.php at line 142 (gallerystatus::error)
  • in main.php at line 87
  • in main.php at line 80

line 80:     GalleryMain();
line 142:  return array(GalleryStatus::error(ERROR_PERMISSION_DENIED, __FILE__, __LINE__), null);

Pls give me some hints. Thx.

Sounds like you didn't follow the install instructions in the readme.  This could have caused some major problems.

Also, if you changed this line:

$gallery->setConfig('mode.embed.only', false);

to

$gallery->setConfig('mode.embed.only', true);

In your Gallery2's config.php file, then you cannot access your Gallery2 install via main.php, you need to access it via Moodle Gallery Module.

Ok, I'm starting to see a pattern here... The problem with the URL's could be a result of a incompatibility between Gallery2.0.4 and PHP5.

David Banach and Harry Smith are running PHP5.  Yew, what version of PHP is running on your web server and on your local install?

Hi Mark

Sorry, the real world is still interfering this end (my Moodle install is an unofficial pilot - about to hit the politics very soon methinks!) and haven't had a chance to test it out recently.

I've been trying to track the /v/ down that people have mentioned . . . seen it before, think it was something to do with clean urls if I remember correctly (when I had a quick look at integrating Gallery with Drupal).

Unfortunately, I've just been informed I have to do a show and tell on what I've been doing with Moodle to an EMA (Emergency Management Australia - a national organisation) Training Workgroup forum tomorrow!

Won't get a chance to try it out with PHP4 tonight - nor get any sleep by the looks of it as it's already 1933 hrs over here ("Murphy" is a wonderfull person - my host had a spike on my server and went down for a while there sad )

Will get back to you asap.

Hi Tim,

Looks like the /v/ problem is caused when Gallery2 has url_rewrite on.  To turn this off, you may have to access your Gallery2 directly, as in not through Moodle.  For more on this, read further down in this discussion.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 

My localhost (which runs everything perfectly) is running on PHP 4.3.10, while my remote host (which is facing problems) is running on PHP 4.4.2. I wonder whether this is useful, but on my remote host, I'm using a subdomain for my moodle hosting. So even though I installed moodle like this:

/public_html/moodle

I access it through this url: moodle.mayhemsquare.com

At first I installed gallery2 like this:

/public_html/gallery2

but realised that this wouldn't work with the way my moodle is accessed, so I installed it like this:

/public_html/moodle/gallery2

Perhaps the rest who are having this problem can comment on this?

Hi Yew,

You may be having a problem with the embed uri setting (I think that's its name).  At work, I have an updated version of the MGM config.html which allows one to set this.  I attempted to find this setting automatically but later I realized that my method would not accommodate all situations.

I'll let you know when that code is in CVS (it's not there now because CVS was down).

I must be being incredibly stupid here.

I've installed Moodle 1.5.2 using Fantastico on PHP4.4.1/Linux/Apache platform. I have gallery 2.0.2 installed, again using Fantastico, and working perfectly in freestanding mode, including the generation of thumbnails.

URL rewrite is deactivated.

I've installed MGM, and all appeared to install correctly after changing the en_utf8 folder name to en.

Relative paths checked out according to the 2 buttons in the moodle/mod/gallery/admin page.

I've added a gallery, and this takes me to the admin page with links no images. Initially boxes appear of the correct size for thumbnails. Clicking on these gives 404 error with addresses such as:
The requested URL /mod/gallery/view.php?id=20&g2_view=core.ShowItem&g2_itemId=14&g2_GALLERYSID=521ba493964cd6adcb5e4d5ee3132b87 does not exist.

I've tried turning the embed switch to true and false, but this makes no difference.

Any suggestions? sad

From what you described, I would try playing around with the second setting on the moodle/mod/gallery/admin page.  The test for it is not very good sad

Let me know if you have any luck!

Mark,

Many thanks indeed! A shift of one directory (../) was all that was needed. The button said there was no such directory, but I tried anyway.

OS, I love it.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
I am having the exact same problem, but the ../ doesnt work for me either. I have had to rename the gallery2 folder to gallery to get the url to say ../mod/gallery/... rather than ..../mod/gallery2/.... But that is the only success I have had. The albums work fine in Gallery itself. Also the menu seems very crowded with two text lines and no gaps in between commands.

Hi Mark

That makes sense, although I would've thought they'd run a stable version and a head version for major changes (you might have guessed, I'm on a rather steap learning curve here and have no real idea of coding/scripting or the way people set up repositories!).

Running on a linux server here with PHP 5.1.1 and MySql 4.1.14.

I can email you my phpinfo output if that would be of any use to you.

Will also try it with a Callery2.04 install when I get a chance but the real world has interrupted my play and I have a few publications I need to get out of the way urgently.

Will get back to you asap on the outcome of a new install.

Later

I've got a very odd problem - I suspect it has something to do with cookies, and it's happened to everyone so far that has tried this in our district.  I set up the gallery module and it works just fine in Firefox, but if anyone tries to view it in IE, it just sits and spins, recording thousands of hits to the log file.

I haven't researched this very much yet - I'll try it from home in the next few days and see if I get the same result.  Here's a snapshot of the log:

Missed the time to edit this - I did some browsing in the Apache logs and I get this message 4-5 times a second:

[29/Mar/2006:08:17:38 -0600] "GET /moodle/mod/gallery/view.php?id=4257&g2_

So it looks like the website is getting the request and processing it - but IE just comes back with another request.

The problem is with the $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] codes. I'm not an experienced php programmer, so i dun really know why firefox and IE process these differently but i sort of got rid of the problem by adding

!$g2_view &&

to the 1st if condition. ie.

if (!$g2_view && !empty($instance->albumid) and ($_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] ...

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hi Mark

Finally getting a chance to try again!

OK:
  • brand new install of Moodle - Moodle 1.6 Beta 1 (2006032900)
  • running php 4.4.1
  • install Gallery 2.04
  • drop gallery module into mod folder and go to Admin - success for setting up tables but get the following error twice "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/emanage/public_html/mod/gallery/lib.php on line 431" (if I remember correctly got that on the first install too)
  • hit continue and set up the module OK
  • add first MGM, back out and then in again, click on an album and get "The requested URL /mod/gallery/v/moodle_1/ was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."
  • went to Gallery2 admin and as I thought, the /v/ is because URL rewrites is defaulted to activated - deactivate it and you get rid of the above error and all looks good, but. . .
Still issues with thumbnails not showing and a " The requested URL /mod/gallery/admin/ was not found on this server." and a 404 when I clicked on site admin (would've thought site admin should be heading to Gallery2 not the mod?).

It's 2:14 am so I'm going to have to hit the hay but will get back to it when I can. At least we know where the /v/ is coming from and I'll flick this install to php 5 when I get back to it to see if we can eliminate that from the equation too.

hope you're still having fun! wink

Still problems with thumbnails here and the admin link issue is from all occurences (just created a sub album in an album in the main Gallery).

Probably something I did wrong during install, was early morning when I started looking at it again, never a good idea trying to trouble shoot when you're falling asleep!

Sure it'll be figured out eventually.

Of course, url_rewrite could cause the urls to look like that!!! Fantastic!

So, new requirement for the MGM install: url_rewrite in Gallery2 must be turned off or you will get odd urls like this:

/moodledir/mod/gallery/v/moodle_1/

Which MGM does not know how to interpret resulting in a 404 error (or some other error).

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hi Mark

PHP5 doesn't appear to affect it, just flicked it over and no new issues as far as I can see so far.

Still having problems with thumbnails (see image below) but strangely enough, having problems if I go to Gallery direct (again, see below - sometimes thumbnail appears sometimes it doesn't?). Don't see why it should be affected from the standalone install - maybe a Gallery issue?

As mentioned above, when I hit the Gallery site admin link in an embedded Gallery it tries to link to "mod/gallery/admin/" rather than "gallery2/admin/" don't see how that would work unless part of your magic is replicating the admin side of things within the module (I really need to find time to get my head round this php/mysql/ruby/rails/ajax and even html stuff sad )

Also, as can be seen below, the module seems to be effecting the font sizes in various places.

Looks like we're getting there though smile

Slightly off-topic, your integration is going the whole hog as in full-on integration into Moodle (and mighty glad we all are smile ). At the moment, this is over and above what I need for my specific situation on a couple of sites. Would you by any chance have a snippet of code laying around, or could cut and paste from your module, that allows single sign-on?

The sites I have in mind basically just want one Gallery on the home page that acts as a repository for pics etc. for the whole membership (I just added it as a resource) therefore, the backup side of things will be handled by Gallery. My struggle so far is the single sign-on side of things to make it look seamless (I really really really need to figure out this scripting stuff!).

I can confirm that changing the url settings within Gallery 2 fixes the problems even for PHP 5.

My thumbnails work fine now, and I don't have a problem accessing the admin page from within moodle.

I also changed the cookie settings for embedding within the Gallery 2 general site admin page, and I haven't turned the embed only setting back on in my gallery 2 config file, but I don' know if either of these make a difference.

My installation seems to work fine now, as far as I can see.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration

Hi Harry,

Still having problems with thumbnails...

Go to your Gallery2 admin screen and check the tools under Graphics Toolkits (I only have GD).  Each toolkit will show you their supported image file types.  Here are GD's:
  • image/gif
  • image/jpeg
  • image/png
  • image/vnd.wap.wbmp
So, if you upload an file that is not one of those, then you will not get a thumbnail because it cannot be processed.

"mod/gallery/admin/" rather than "gallery2/admin/"

It shouldn't link to either of those.  The first one looks like a url_rewrite and the second would go to the non-embedded Gallery2.

My struggle so far is the single sign-on side of things to make it look seamless (I really really really need to figure out this scripting stuff!).

SSO sounds cool.  The snippet that you would be interested in is in mod/gallery/locallib.php and the function is called gallery_init().  You could try this:

require_once($CFG->dirroot.'/mod/gallery/locallib.php');
gallery_init();
redirect('http://urltoyourgallery2.com');

BUT, I think the init params may be incorrect if you do this from another directory other than mod/gallery/

If that is the case, then you need to do the same snippet as above, but instead of gallery_init(); copy paste the contents of gallery_init function in between the require and the redirect and modify the init params.  Good Luck!

Cheers,
Mark

Hi Mark

Thumbnails issue: Yep got GD, ImageMagick and NetPBM (just need to compile ffmpeg on the server now!) so doubt it's a filter issue. Was thinking maybe something to do with the error I got on install?

"Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/emanage/public_html/mod/gallery/lib.php on line 431"

Might have to start from scratch when I get a chance and see if I can install without getting that error.

Site admin: Hmmmm, will pay more attention on second install!

SSO: thanks for the tip (and the subsequent one) will see what I can do when I get a chance. Things would be so much easier if our Moodle was official rather than doing stuff at night after work or stealing a quick 5 minutes during the day!

Main thing is, your excellent mod is working for others so there is light at the end of the tunnel for me smile

Minor Update to MGM:
  • Updated the README to say that only Gallery2.0.4 is supported and that url_rewrite needs to be turned off.
  • The fix for the IE refresh loop.
  • New config for URI embed path.
If you upgrade, you will have to update your config settings in Moodle Admin -> Modules -> MGM Settings.

Gallery2 Integration: A Few minor problems
 
I just got the gallery module (version 2005091600) running in 1.6.1 without problems. I'm really appreciative of the work you did on this great module. The galleries work just fine.

I've run into just a few problems:
1. When I click on the list of galleries for a course in the activities block I get this error:     A required parameter was missing
Debug gives
Notice: Undefined variable: id in /moodledir/mod/gallery/index.php on line 17
 
 2. When I backup a gallery in one course in order make a copy in another, the gallery copies but is empty (no subgalleries or iamges from the original)  when restored in the new course. I did do backup without user data, if that makes a difference.

3. When I tried to use the java full  screen slideshow applet (one of my favorite parts of gallery) I get an error saying there is no active remote module at the gallery http address and asking that I check that there is an active gallery installation at the address. I changed the embed only setting to false in the config.php file in gallery, and the java slideshow worked. Is it ok to leave the embed only setting off?


Thanks for any help you can give me on these little annoyances!

David

Re: Gallery2 Integration: A Few minor problems
 

Yes, I had same problem. The ‘Galleries’link (in the moodle nav bar) was wrong.

I've been watching here and no one came to answer yousad.

So, I just redirect to the Gallery mainpage by:

  1. Do NOT Edit your Gallery 2 config.php file to make any embed.
  2. Delete all content in mod/gallery/index.php and replace with:

<?php

echo'<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://yoursite/gallery/main.php">';

?>

It lost the list of galleries and doesn’t display that annoying error msg.

But, I am still looking forwards to seeing  someone fix that problem.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration - separate galleries
 
A question -

If several galleries are set up, it is possible from the left-block Gallery menu to access all of these from any one gallery; even if these are set up in different courses.  This could be confusing with Galleries that are intended to be course-specific.

Is it possible to remove the Gallery menu, so that the user is committed to the one Gallery they enter from any single activity link?

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration - separate galleries

A huge thanks to Mark Nielson and the rest of the Gallery (MGM) developers and troubleshooters. Just installed this in Moodle 1.5.3+ and PHP4 (probably the last thing I'll do before the 1.6 upgrade) and all seems to be working without a hitch big grin.

I'm sure this will have a major role in 'converting ' erstwhile Moodle-suspicious art, photography and media teachers wink.

With it's sophisticated permissions system, and the ability to add text and comments, it strikes me that this is not just a 'photo gallery' but has many of the characteristics of a Moodle (Digital Image) Repository. It also has great potential as a Showcase or e-Portfolio for students' work. So at the very least, this will be a useful stand-in until other Repository/Portfolio solutions mature, or we can afford to buy-in Hive.

Keep up the good work!

As indicated in my posting yesterday, all seems to be working well with our MGM intall...

Our automated (weekly) backup is unfinished/fails on courses which contain Galleries. Manual backup of these courses also fails at the point of Gallery backup, but succeeds if the Gallery is excluded.

Any ideas?

To answer my own question on Gallery backups
RTFM (read the flipping manual wink)
The README.txt file has the line:

2.  Install Moodle 1.5 or greater (1.6 or greater for backup/restore I think).

So presumably the upgrade to Moodle 1.6 will sort the backup problem!

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
I've run into a couple of problems with the Gallery install using Moodle 1.6 on Windows system. I'll give these for what it's worth to the developers. If there's a more direct way of letting them know, I'd appreciate being told how. I'm new to all this.

First, it seems to have some problem keeping track on slashes and escapes. It was returning c:\moodle\moodle\mod\gallery\..\..\gallery2\embed.php for the embedpath. I cleaned this up by adding a stripslashes on line 416 on lib.php i.e.,

$form->embedpath = addslashes( $CFG->dirroot.'\mod\gallery'.stripslashes($form->relativepath).'\embed.php' );

Reversing the direction of the slashes also seemed to make my browser happier, but I'm not convinced it was necessary.

The second problem was with the relative url. Since moodle is the top level on this server, there wasn't any need to add anything to the relative path. This however, confused the program and the path check returned a blank popup window Entering just a period in the field made the test happy, but created a bogus URL in the form of /.directoryname. Trying ./ caused the path check to fail and the ever popular, "No action specified" error when trying to create a new gallery.  I'm still working on this one.

And thanks to who ever originally suggested using notify to figure out what values the scripts were actually working with. I couldn't have worked it out without that.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://gallery2/themes/matrix/theme.css"/>
 <!-- End Gallery Info -->

They should be:

and

I'm not familiar with the process of translating Moodle modules and my first guess was not good : I've copied the en_utf8 folder inside the lang one and renamed if to fr_utf8. I hoped to see the strings in english and then edit the gallery.php and help files to translate all, but the strings stuff continue to show up... I'm missing something but I can't figure what ?

However my next problem was that i got an error
Fatal error: Call to a member function isError() on a non-object in //mod/gallery/locallib.php on line 111
looking into this error it is where the database is not linking. I then found this post
http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=31755 with a file called moodle-gallery.zip, this contains some files that when a new user is created in moodle the same user is created in the database for gallery2. This works as i have checked my gallery2 database for the added entry. But now i get the error

I then made a gallery using the newly made user that went OK and then I made one as myself and everything looks OK.

If i can be of any help to anyone by looking at my installation let me know

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 

We're running the latest versions of PHP 5 and MySQL.  We've just migrated to Moodle 1.6, specifically because we needed Gallery, I downloaded the 'Unpossible' version and installed it yesterday (definately NOT the 'Blackjack' version)and I cannot get it to work properly.

Gallery itself works fine as a standalone.

When I add Gallery as a module to Moodle and then add it as an activity to a course it almost works fine.  I can create albums and upload files, these files can be viewed within Gallery2, so I know that it is working at that end and that the files are being uploaded and processed.

However in Moodle I simply get the broken graphic symbol instead of the image, this applies both to the thumbnail and to the image itself.

An example <img> tag, might look like this:

<img src="http://www.kgv.ac.uk/kgv/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=22&g2_serialNumber=2&g2_GALLERYSID=e26f0acb0cf2f9a88193681ac0ebf77b" width="640" height="221" alt="RA_Flight800" longdesc="Red Arrows"/>

I've seen reference in the posts above to disabling url_rewrite, could this help, and if so where would I find the code to do it?

I definitely had to disable url rewrite to get it to work. You do this in the administration page (Site Admin) within Gallery. You don't alter the apache settings themselves. Go to modules and click on deactivate under url rewrite.

Good luck!

Hi David,

Thanks for that.  I actually did that, although it clearly said "In order for this Gallery module to work you need mod_rewrite enabled with your Apache server."  We're not using Apache.

When I tried the test link I got the message "FAIL_NO_REWRITE"

It made no difference.  I've currently got it Uninstalled, but no luck.

Cheers

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
I have tried the installation of gallery2 in my moodle 1.6 installation and I can get the mod installed correctly, and the paths seem correct for the moodle directory and the gallery directory.  But when I go to add a gallery I fill out the first page forms, ie name, description, and so on, and hit save and it sends me to a blank screen.....  Any ideas....

Hi,

Does it create anything in the course?  If you don't have debugging on then you might want to try turning that on to see if there are any errors.  It is difficult to help because I have never run into this problem before smile

Cheers,
Mark

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 

Same problem here. The paths are, without a doubt, correct. In my apache error log I see this:

PHP Fatal error:  Call to a member function isError() on a non-object in /Library/WebServer/Documents/moodle/mod/gallery/locallib.php on line 111

Line 111 is this:

 
109   // Get the G2 user that matches the Moodle username
110    list ($ret, $g2user) = GalleryCoreApi::fetchUserByUsername($user->username);
111    if ($ret->isError() and !($ret->getErrorCode() & ERROR_MISSING_OBJECT)) {
112        error('Gallery Core Error');  // something is wrong besides user mapping
113   }
 

So... do I need to create a user in Gallery and a user in Moodle that use the same username? Or is the module supposed to take care of that and not doing it? Any ideas?
edit-> Oh... debugging gives me nothing and nothing is created in the course. It is as if I have done nothing at all.

I have removed all the default permissions in the Module settings, in Gallery the usersa re bing created, and Group Everybody hs rights to view all objects.

ANy ideas?

(PS I found a way to import to Gallery2 from a remote Gallery1 server, which the Gallery site said you could not do - I simply mounted the Gallery1 server into the Gallery2 server webroot directory using NFS and treated it as a local one.)

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 

Hello everyone,

I installed a new moodle 1.6+ successfully  three days ago. And, I finally installed the Gallery and the Gallery Module since my first try in April this year.

The gallery worked on standalone, i.e. from http://mydomain.com/gallery

It also worked in Moodle when I added an album as activities. The teacher or admin mode worked fine.

However, when my student logged in, they could not open the album, instead they got the following message:

 The first time:

Gallery User creation failed
Error (ERROR_STORAGE_FAILURE)

The second time they tried to open the album activity, they have this message:

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
I installed Gallery from the download in the subdirectory /courses which is where moodle is. I then moved the files as directed to the mod directory.
I followed the readme file and set the paths and it asked me about permissions. I answered yes to question about having moodle handle permissions. Then the next line says Default User Permissions: with nothing after that point on the page no way to Submit the information or any thing.

When I go to administrator interface for moodle there is no entry for galley under activities.

I also did the following as directed in the Readme file:

**Edit your Gallery2's config.php file and make the following edit:
Change:
$gallery->setConfig('mode.embed.only', false);
To:
$gallery->setConfig('mode.embed.only', true);

This will make Gallery2 only accessible through embedded applications (aka MGM).**

Am I missing something?

Thanks, I have a definite time frame crunch on getting this up and working.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately there was a Problem yesterday, when I tried to install Gallery2 on Moodle. I've tried to inegrate Gallery2 in a new Moodle Installation (1.6.1+, not just 1.6.1) and it didn't work good.
The gallery didn't open in the own frame but in the moodle frame  and everything -fonts and styles were those from moodle, so that the admin menu of the gallery was with VERY big letters. I've tried to create an album, I've uploaded some photos successfully, but the photos didn't show up...

Has anybody an good Idea? Is the problem i the newer Moodle version? Should I install the 1.6.1 again?

Thanks - LZ

Hi Frank,

   Just get into the /themes directory where gallery is installed. You will find there is a folder called matrix, this is the default theme of Gallery. Inside this /themes/matrix folder is the file theme.css. Open it and edit the type font-size to 100% inside the class #gallery. You can't miss it, because is the only font-size tith a percentage. That will do.

How to add a place for users to submit/upload photos
 
Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to ad a place for logged in users the ability to upload and submit a photo to me. I wanted to the photo to not be instantly published but either emailed to me with the description the user put or placed into some sort of que that when approved it would go live or be published. Is this possible?
I want the to offer my users a way to sumbit a "picture of the day contest" so I will review all submissions and I will choose one. the rest will be just placed into the proper category the user specified. ie. trucks, cars, boats ect..

Get it? Please email me or reply if you know how I can do this.. Even Placing it on the main page would work..

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
I'm having a problems with paths & wondering if someone can help.

I have a site http://moodle.cs.colorado.edu

On the linux end, I have /var/www/html/moodle point to the current release
(which is moodle-1.6.2, with a security patch)

I installed gallery2.0.4 in /var/www/html/gallery2 and put a symlink into /var/www/html/moodle/gallery2 so that I could run the installation

After doing the install, I could visit the gallery2 area directly and I could create albums. I can also upload photos etc.

However, the CSS for the album attempts to load

 <!-- Gallery Header Info --> 

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://gallery2/modules/icons/iconpacks/paularmstrongdesigns/icons.css"/>

i.e. it's not including the host name.

I can modify modules/core/classes/GalleryUrlGenerator.class

to eliminate that by removing the $domain part of the sprintf in makeUrl
but that breaks other things in different ways.

I'm assuming I'm doing something silly here, but I can't seem to figure out what.
Any suggestions?

Hello Mark,
I have a rather elementary problem. I installed Gallery2 successfully (winxp, Moodle 1.7). I see it in the activities and can select it when I click on Turn editing on. I enter the album name and other parameters. But I have been unable to find where to upload pictures. I tried doing this as administrator, course creator and teacher.

A related problem I am running into is seeing the course entry "create course" if I am not logged in as administrator, even if I am logged in as course creator.

Can you please give me steps to follow to upload photos into gallery from moodle?
Many thanks

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
I am wondering when/if a 1.7 implementation will be available? We started with 1.7 since last November, and I thought I would give the module a try (hey, you never know). Doesn't work, of course. I can add the activity, but when I commit the changes, Firefox reports it "has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete." I can go to my Gallery2 install, and the album is there. But that is about it. Seems like a strange redirect error. In IE7 (yuck) the browser just sits there, stuck in an endless loop.

Clicking on the activity as a student reports the same error. From what I understand, when this module works it is awesome. Can I please partake in the awesomeness? Anyone working on a 1.7 version? Or provide instructions on what to hack to make it work with 1.7? I am not afraid of the command line.

I have just installed Gallery2 and the moodle integration on Moodle 1.8+
(2007021503) Apache/2.0.55 (Ubuntu) mod_fastcgi/2.4.2 PHP/5.1.6 added the view.php, however when adding a gallery activity SeaMonkey reports

Redirection Loop

Redirection limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested page. This may be caused by cookies that are blocked.

It does produce a link in the course, but clicking on it produces the same error.

Is the version of Apache likely to be the problem? I would prefer not to mess with it, if I do not have to!

I click on Save changes and then next screen comes up and tells me "Changes saved."

Then the Activities screen comes up. No Gallery there.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
What are you doing to get this error? Does it occur when you try to open the Gallery item in Moodle?

I just remembered I had a similar problem when I started but I'm not sure if it is the same one. Delete any albums in the course and recreate them. (Do not delete the Gallery 2 folders.) When recreating you can choose an existing folder from Gallery 2 if you wish or create a new one.

Also see:
http://gallery.menalto.com/node/48067

http://gallery.menalto.com/node/64706

Slightly similar to http://forum.4theweb.nl/archive/index.php/t-626.html

It means there is a fault in sync between Gallery 2 and Moodle. Moodle is giving an item id that does not exist. Recreating should fix up the IDs.

Seems to happen for the very first album created in Moodle.

Hope this helps fix the problem.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hi James,

I got some time and finally got this working! Despite setting the paths to absolute, we were still getting errors.

The key for us was to DOWNGRADE to Gallery 2.1 (we had 2.2.2 running). This did the trick. I used a fresh install and a new database in MySQL.

Also, for those running Mac OS X Server, this unfortunately ships with PHP 4.x without GD graphics support needed by Gallery. This was solved by installing PHP 5 from www.entropy.ch. Note you need to disable PHP 4 first in the httpd.conf file. This then BROKE our connx to the database, because you must specify the location of the MySQL socket file according to:

http://www.entropy.ch/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?p=9499#9499

Hope this helps others.

Great Module!

I have got this module working well with 1.8+ with the updated view.php. When a gallery already created in Gallery2 is selected in 1.8+ recourse and then erased / deleted in 1.8+ all the album contents and directories are deleted. Fine for most situations but what I would like to do is to JUST delete the link between Moodle and Gallery2 but have it still listed in Gallery2 itself. I would like to ONLY delete albums in Gallery2 and NOT have galleries deleted buy Moodle via the MGM module. How can I prevent the MGM module from deleting the album but JUST DELETE the Moodle listing to the gallery.

I'd agree with Ji on this one. It's been a long standing 'feature' of the Gallery-Moodle integration that deleting a Gallery link, deletes
the Gallery itself.

Mind you, I have only ever done this once, and took some time to rebuild the gallery. Since then I take more care wink

Hi Ji,

In the lib.php file there method called gallery_delete_instance() that has the following chunk of code that deletes the album in Gallery2:

$ret = GalleryCoreApi::deleteEntityById($instance->albumid);
if ($ret) {
// error($ret->getAsHtml()); // DEBUG
return false;
}

Remove it and you should be set.

I'm considering a moodle/gallery implementation to support submission, peer reviewing and assessment of images, and I'm curious to have a play with a trial implementation, but the Gallery2 functionality doesn't seem to be running on the moodle trial site and I can't find any other trial sites anywhere else.

Any suggestions of a demo site that I could look at just to get a feel for the capabilities of how the two tools function together?

Thanks in advance,

Mark.

There is a demo available in the Moodle Playpen.

You can view an existing demo here or request your own course and play with the full functionality yourself.

P.S. The Playpen is running 1.9. Good to see the ode will continue to work in the next version.

Hello Everyone!

We got this module working fine with 1.8 with the updated view.php file. The intergration worked great.

However, after upgrading to 1.8.2+ we are unable to connect to the gallery. Now we get this error and are unable to delete the module from 1.8.2+

As mentioned in the README.txt you must use the previous version of Gallery,

Gallery version = 2.1.2 core 1.1.0.2

Some core changes were made between versions and module doesn't work with new version.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 
Hello everyone!

I have installed Gallery2 in my root to be used by multiple Moodle sites. So it would be something like www.mydomain.com/gallery/ . Then I installed the gallery module www.mydomain.com/moodle/mod/gallery/ . When I did the set up for Gallery2 I chose the mult installation option....maybe this is my problem. I should try it the other way...anyway...

I have tried the view.php on the "most recent download" on the module download page and I have downloaded every single view.php on this thread. I have tried every single one and I am about to pull my hair out. I think I have found 5-6 different versions of view.php . I have even gone through the code to compare what the differences are!

I have installed and un-installed and deleted and re-created my gallery database about 4 times. And I am officially at my whits end.

I am using the Gallery 2.1.2 and directed.

These are the problems that I am having:

1. I have two galleries in Moodle that are there from previous installs of Gallery that I can't get to erase. So, since I re-installed Gallery, they are not in the Gallery. But I can't get them to go away from my Moodle class. If it is a pain, I can just re-create the class. Maybe that would solve it.

2. Sometimes I can get a gallery to delete, sometimes I can't. It depends on the version of view.php I have running. But, since I have tried so many versions I don't know which is which anymore. But, ultimately what I want is the ability to erase a gallery from a class without erasing it from the gallery. But, I also want a way to be able to delete it from the gallery at a later time.

3. When I click on a gallery in my course, it just takes me to one main gallery. It appears that when I create a gallery all the images just end up in one huge gallery, not separate ones. So, when I click on the gallery in the course it takes me to the gallery main page with all the photos from all the Albums. Not to the photos in the Album I want.

If I create an album directly in Gallery then I can have an Album correctly set apart. Those albums will show up in the huge gallery as options of albums to choose. But when I click on a link in the class, Moodle takes me to the big gallery.

I was thinking as a workaround I should just create Albums in Gallery and then instead of add a Gallery to my class, just add a link to the right URL for that Gallery. But, would I loose the breadcrumbs etc?

And, from within Gallery is there a way to move from Album to Album or see a list of the Albums that are in Gallery. I don't see any really good navigation around the Gallery. Maybe I am missing something.

Is there anyone out there that is willing to help me?

Here I will throw out a bone....while I was creating this class I created a Hybid Format that includes ajax. So the format has a heading...then a "social forum" type area (like the social forum) then after that are the topics just like you would see in a Topics format.

I am working in Moodle 1.9+ so it works in 1.9

Thanks in advance!!!

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 

I have successfully integrated Gallery2 (2.1.2) with Moodle 1.8.2+, using the Moodle gallery module.

However, I would now like Gallery2 (in Moodle) to play flash videos (flv)- ie. have a nice flash player embeded into the web page.

The problem I have is that the Gallery2 Moodle integration currently seems to work with Gallery2 2.1.2 and Moodle 1.8.2, but it won't work with the latest version of Gallery2 (2.2.2).

In the latest version of Gallery2, there is a module called flashvideo which does what I need- plays a flash video in the web page! But this feature isn't available to previous versions of Gallery2 (In the site admin --> modules page of Gallery2, It gives an error saying "Core API Required: 7.9 (available: 7.3)" ).

Any ideas of how to solve this, or at least another easy way to have flash players in the html pages (without adding any javascript/html code manually)?

Thanks,

Charles.

It'd be fantastic if it could be updated to work with G2 2.2.* for compatibility with the G2 Flash Video Module.


Thomas, try reasserting (recursively) the rights on the entire gallery2 and g2data folders.
I don't know what system you are installed on so refer to gallery2 readme for this.

Anyone has ever tried to share Gallery2 by more than one Moodle sites?
 
It is working perfectly on my Moodle1.9 (PHP4.4, MySql4.0). Thank you very much.

The student can only access the album from their own course resource which I created separate ‘gallery/album’ for a specific topic. It is fantastic.

Even better, the gallery displays under the Moodle's bread crumb trail, so no one know where the root gallery is.

So, I am wondering, is it possible to share the gallery installation by different Moodle sites? I got several Moodle sites in different server with different domain name and databases. Can I only install your MGM module into all my Moodle sites, but they all share ONE Gallery2? (I want to be lazy, but dare not to try. I am afraid that two or more Moodle sites accounts may conflict each other).

Re: Anyone has ever tried to share Gallery2 by more than one Moodle sites?
 

Dear Mark,

All my Moodle sites on same server have been able to share ONE Gallery2 successfully! Any new gallery instances (added in Moodle courses) can has its own permission setup. And the students can only see their own album. No users can find out there are sharing the gallery2 with other sites. WoW, that’s so efficient! Save saver space and time (money)! Thank you very much Mark!

why do we need the ‘create link’ function and how to disable it
 

I want to know why do we need the ‘create link’ function and how to disable it.

The students can click on the “Create link” link to see: Link an item: Source: Choose the items you want to link: Check All: Destination:choose a new album for this link:link

Luckily, I can set permission to students can only see ‘Destination’ of their own album. (They cannot see my other hidden albums)

But, they DO can create, actually duplicate or copy, other students’ photos and all these replicas shows a new owner. It is a big plagiarism problem!

Please anyone can help me to disable the “create link” function.

I’ve uninstalled the “Link Items” but no difference.

Hi, I'm having a problem with getting Gallery to work. I installed Gallery, and then placed the MGM into the mod folder. I then set the paths and received verification of the paths. When I go to create an instance of the gallery, I get to the setup screen and all goes well until I attempt to save changes. Once I click save changes (before ever doing anything with pictures) my browser returns "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."

Anyone have any ideas? I'm on 1.9

Sorry about that, I missed the thread where this was answered. I have now installed the view.php file and am no longer getting the loop.

BUT...

I'm now having some other problems. The layout is very awkward, and doesn't look anything like any screen shots that I have seen before. Could this be a result of an interaction with my theme? Also, while I can upload pictures, I can't view the pictures at all. There are no thumbnails, nor does the picture appear when I click on the name. Any suggestions?

Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration (unable to search)
 
Hi all, I'm using Moodle 1.9.1 and Gallery 2.2.4 though a GoDaddy hosting account. The integration was "nearly" flawless, since it does integrate perfectly into my moodle skins and images are seen both in thumbnail view and in full size. The batch uploading procedure is also great!!

The issue I'm having is when I use the search function. When I try to search directly using the Gallery2 interface, I have no problem. However, when I attempt to search from Moodle (with the search function embedded from Gallery2) I get the following message:

The item you are attempting to view does not belong to this Gallery.

I try to search tags, parts of the filename, even the exact filename, and all return this result.

Any ideas??

My suggestion for further development:

1) Support of albums in album, until now, I discovered only the first level.
2) a HOW TO for putting single pictures in the course
3) provide a block, showing the newest uploads.

Hi Guido, one question, once you integrated the module with gallery, were you able to use the search function in moodle to find a specific picture. The plugin works for me, but will return an error when I search for files.

Did you use apply the patch Jean Fruitet posted? I did and it actually broke my integration with gallery, so just about ready to give up on this and go with the lightbox plugin, but would much rather prefer to use gallery 2.

Re: Gallery Module: Error about mod.html
Group Moodle Course Creator Certificate holders
I am getting this error message when I try to add a Gallery Integration activity in a course:

This module cannot be added to this course yet! (No file found at: ../mod/galleryintegration/mod.html)

I have Gallery 2.2.5 installed into a gallery2 folder within moodle. I then installed the gallery2 integration module for Moodle 1.9.1. I ran the setup which correctly created the table in my MySQL database. I then "installed" the module from within the administration area. Finally I created a new course and then tried to add the activity.

What is a bit strange is when I checked my Gallery 2 site, a new album had been automatically created by this mod in Moodle for my new course. I just can't seem to activate it or something. Any help here. I feel so close since Moodle is actually creating albums that match the course names.

Also, is there a quick way to create albums for existing courses and users? Thanks.

Hi,

i have this problem:

"URI is Incorrect. Attempted to open Gallery2's main.php."

But i am totally sure, that the path i added is correct. I tried ..// in the beginning and / at the end, changed the path etc. pp.

I read the whole post here but did not find a similar problem (only the thing with embed.php, i tried the suggestions but it did not work on my moodle).

i am using moodle version 1.9.3+  with php 4.3 and mysql 4. I downloaded gallery into mymoodle/../mod/gallery and gallery2.2.6 into mymoodle/../mod/gallery/gallery2.

The first path for the gallery2 directory is set/running correct, but the

path for the URI is always incorrect. 

Does anybody know a solution ? I would be very lucky about that, because this module seems to be perfect for my homepage smile.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 

Hi Debbie,

i had a mail exchange with Mark Nielsen (Mark, i liked your explanation and copy it in here smile). So if you are sure that the value of that field is correct (with the forward slash at the end) and your gallery modul works on that path in your browser, you could just say save it and then try using the module anyways and see if it works. Another value you could try is /gallery2/ if your Moodle is installed at the same domain as Gallery2. If all the above fails and your Moodle and Gallery2 are installed at different domains, then I suggest try installing them in the same domain and same web root directory.

Regards, Heidi

Has there been any updates to this module? I have Moodle 1.9.7 installed and working I am trying to use the mod with Gallery 2.3, the only version I can find. I guess it is not compatible.

I tried overwriting the view.php and index.php files with the ones in this thread, which took care of the looping but now I just get errors similar to the one's above. I cannot seem to delete the non-functioning gallery, either.

This is such an exciting mod. Is anyone using it currently?

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
Group Particularly helpful Moodlers
I thought that gallery2 did not accept PHP directive "safe_mode=ON" which is Moodle recommanded setting...
If so, you can't make gallery2 works fine on the same server than moodle.
But I can be wrong.

http://gallery.menalto.com/requirements

This is an excerpt from
http://codex.gallery2.org/Gallery2:Installation_Requirements

PHP Version Compatibility

Gallery requires at least version 4.x (4.3.0 or more recent) or 5.x (5.0.4 or more recent) to function properly. Note: Gallery 2 has problems with PHP 5.0.5 due to a bug in PHP .

Notes:
  • PHP 5 is highly recommended - PHP will not release any security updates for PHP 4 after 2008/08/08. If your webhost is still running PHP 4, please ask them to switch to PHP 5 as soon as possible for security reasons (not just for Gallery, but for all PHP applications).
  • Only Gallery 2.3.1 supports PHP 5.3. PHP 5.3 is incompatible with Gallery 2.0 - 2.3.
  • PHP 6 is incompatible with Gallery 2.0 - 2.3; not yet tested with Gallery 2.3.1

PHP Settings

In addition to a basic PHP installation, Gallery requires certain PHP settings to be setup correctly in order to function optimally.

PHP settings can be changed in php.ini, as described in the PHP documentation

  • safe_mode safe_mode must be disabled in order for Gallery to work correctly
    • for a in depth discussion on safe mode please read this forum thread.
  • disable_functions The disable_functions directive must not include the function set_time_limit.
  • file_uploads file_uploads must be set to On if Gallery is to be able to upload files from your computer
  • upload_max_filesize and post_max_size These configuration parameters control the maximum file size that can be uploaded. Adjust these from the default 2M setting to something larger if you have problems uploading pictures from higher resolution cameras.
  • If you want to use the localization feature then PHP should be configured with the gettext option enabled.

alindeman has created a script to check your Gallery for potential problems due to PHP settings. Download the script and upload it to your host. Open the script in your browser (http://www.example.com/gallery/ghcc.php). If any tests fail, you may need to adjust your settings before trying to install Gallery.

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration

Hi Jean

Actually, that is not completely correct. For full functionality, Moodle requires Safe Mode to be off too! Indeed, Safe Mode has been removed from PHP6

http://www.breakingpointsystems.com/community/blog/php-safe-mode-considered-harmful

So it is possible to run Gallery alongside Moodle. I'm doing it, albeit with an older version of Gallery2 (Gallery version = 2.1.2 core 1.1.0.2)

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 

Hi Heidi,

Sure I can wink!

Thank you for your answer. I'm the Moodle administrator for a school in France. About 1200 students are connected to Moodle since 3 years now.

My aim is to connect Gallery to Moodle so that students and teachers could share albums in a secure environment. Gallery seems to be a tool which could answer to my wishes but I don't want users have to create another account. It would be better if they could use the moodle one.

I installed Gallery3 but it seems impossible to interface it with Moodle. So I've installed Gallery 2.3 but all my tests has been unsuccessfull!

Perhaps anyone in this forum could help me giving a link or the working files view.php and config.html?

Thank you very much for your help, It's an hopeless situation at this time sad

Best regards

Pascal

Re: Gallery Module: Gallery2 Integration
 

Hi Pascal,

the aim of my question was, what did you do until now, to integrate your gallery into your moodle plattform?

May be i can give you a little help with the steps i did to integrate the gallery into my moodle:

1. Create a Subdomain for your gallery on your homepage.

2. Create a Database for your gallery on your homepage.

3. On my plattform i used gallery 2.1.2 full, that worked. I installed it on my in 1. described subdomain.

optional: (4. It is possible, that the php.ini has to be changed, so that exec() has to be set on "allow". In this case you have to put a file ".htaccess" in your folder: your moodle/gallery. The ".htaccess"-file has to have the following content: AddHandler php-fastcgi.php)

5. Now, after doing step 1.-4. (not earlier) you can start to integrate the gallery-module into your moodle as an interface between your moodle and the gallery 2.1.2 you installed on your subdomain.

6.Put your gallery-module into your moodle/mod/gallery

7. Go as an admin to your moodle->Administration->Notifications. Your gallery-module has to be installed.

8. Than, you have to set the right path in: moodle->Website->Administration->Modules->Activities-> Configure path. Check your path whether it is correct.

9. After that, it should work.

I had some problems with the Firefox. It created an endless loop. But the change of the view.php helped. Here is a link to the right view.php

Maybe these informations will help you.

That answer is to Mark Nielsen, I can see you has finished your beta version of the Moodle Gallery Module (MGM) on 2006 but now is 2011 and exist Moodle 2.0.   I try to use the MGM and doesn´t works in Moodle 2.0. ¿Have you have some intentions of actualization...to Moodle 2.0?.

I´not an expert in this matters and is very difficult for me do it for my own... o maybe you can try to do some actualizations...

Sorry for my english my native language is spanish... thanks
