[Elgg 1.5-1.12 & 2.X - 4.X: Tidypics] v1.6.8

Release Notes

Supports 1.5.x-1.7.x

Fixed a bug with resizing images. Added some markup and css to improve photo album layout. Improved the admin settings page layout.

Install/upgrade like any other plugin. If you haven't upgraded since Tidypics 1.5.x, an upgrade button will appear on your Tidypics admin page.

  • Has anyone found a solution to this error: You don't have permission to access /action/tidypics/settings on this server?

  • @Larsen - we look forward to a patch ;)

  • @Ian - have never been able to reproduce and the vast majority of users don't see this. We need someone with PHP/Apache skills to debug this.

  • :) Thanks for fast response! What do you think or what is the time for the next release?

    Where is the DONATION Button???

  • I keep getting this error on my site, It new upload and not an upgrade. Please help

    Fatal error: Call to undefined method ElggObject::addView() in /home/content/86/4139186/html/mod/tidypics/views/default/object/image.php on line 136

  • Hi!, I think this is one of the most important elgg`s plugin, It must be included with the elgg package. I was trying to change the way for the albums display at the profile but not success : ( , Do you know how can I modify the file albums.php the let the albums appear horizontally?.  Also how to show created on "any date" not "1 day ago or so".



  • @Larsen - no timetable on the next release

    @siucdude - something went wrong when installing Tidypics - especially if this is a new install. Check the admin page and see if there is an upgrade button.

    @Julian3261 - do you mean in the profile widget? I don't think there is enough room to display them horizontally. As for the date, that is controlled by Elgg not by Tidypics.

  • Hello. Is it possible to make different image sizes of thumbnails? Suppose i want the same values like in Facebook images. 130x90 px - I mean  different width and height thumbnail image create. Is it possible? Something like that:


  • Can anyone give me a clue as to why the slideshow doeas not work?

    Using elgg 1.6.2 with Tidypics 1.6.8... black box starts and "loading" bar moves from left to right, but then nothing...

    Fab plugin, many thanks, any help appreciated.


  • Thank you for your reply, I have 1.7.1,  I made only two columns at the user`s profile, right widget has width:470; I look to display something like the fiend widget, one beside the other, maybe tree are fine. Thanks!

  • @Anatoly:

    As far as I know, it's not possible that users can upload pictures into albums created by other users. Group albums are the only exception if you have set "Allow group members full access to group albums" in the Tidypics administration settings.

  • @David Stawowy - did you try setting different thumbnails sizes?

    @Mark - no idea why it doesn't work for you

    @Julian3261 - the view is tidypics/albums


  • Hi, thank you for your reply, I know that but do you know how can I modify "albums" the let the albums appear horizontally like the "album" file? I tried many ways :(   also css. Thanks!

  • Hi!

    I installed tydipics. Then created a group. Then created a group album. I now want to limit "admin" features so only site admins/group owner can delete/edit albums. any way to do it? (already tried unchecking "Allow group members full access to group albums", but it doesn´t seem to work fine - some features are locked, others keep working).

    Any ideas?

  • Please tell me, are you regularly updating the plugin with elgg updation.

  • @adriank - you would have to edit the permissions function in start.php to only allow admins/group owners to work with albums

    @Pankaj - this plugin is under active development

    @Julian3261 - have you tried working with the CSS?

  • Hi,

    is it possible (or maybe already working) to show all picture taggs? Just like "You are linked to following pictures" or something like that.


  • Thanks for reply, i got the upgrade button and after i click it, the page goes to start page and says "form is missing _token or _ts field"

    Thank You for your help.


  • Hi,
    i have a little problem with plugin. The upload works fine but i dont get thumbnails if the uploaded image has a size of 2463x3702px.

    Installed versions:

    Elgg 1.6.1
    Tydipics 1.6.6

    If i make the image smaller than 2000 px the upload and thumbnail generation works fine.

    Any hints for me?


    Greetings and many thanks for every tip,

  • Shuffle Pictures on "Latest view".......

    Hi Guys has anyone a little code idea to make the pictures on the latest view...make shuffle???

    Sorry.....im not a coder... ithink this is not a big string.......or i wrong???

    Regards Lars

  • Hi together,
    ive got it!

    For all with the same problem (a white page display after upload).

    This is a memory problem. My hoster dont allow a memory size greater then 50MB. But if you open "tidypics/lib/resize.php" and write ini_set(memory_limit, "150M"); (i wrote it at line 8) then you can overwrite the server settings.

    The second solution:
    If the memory_limit dosnt run you can test this:

    if($width>=1000 || $height>=1000) {
    $newimage = imagecreate($newwidth, $newheight);
    } else {
    $newimage = imagecreatetruecolor($newwidth, $newheight);

    Write this at line 159 in resize.php. Now if the image is larger than 1000px the imagecreate() function will be used. This function needs less memory. But it makes a bad thumbnail and preview image. The original image will be stored correctly on the server.

    I hope this can help somebody!



  • Hallo everyone. I could use your help. I try to upload photos in an album but  I get the following database exception:

    "Incorrect string value: '\xEE\x00\x00\x00\x07\x00...' for column 'string' at row 1". QUERY: INSERT into elgg_metastrings (string) values ('a:55:{s:8:\"FileName\";s:22:\"1277657222p1010008.jpg\";s:12:\"FileDateTime\";i:1277657222;s:8:\"FileSize\";i:2898927;s:8:\"FileType\";i:2;s:8:\"MimeType\";s:10:\"image/jpeg\";s:13:\"SectionsFound\";s:39:\"ANY_TAG, IFD0, THUMBNAIL, EXIF, INTEROP\";s:8:\"COMPUTED\..................................

    Does anyone know why this exception is raised? I suppose it tries to insert an invalid string in the table elgg_metastrings but I can't figure out the problem. It happens though to all the photos and albums, so I can't use tidypics at all.

    Thanks in advance for your response.

  • @omenger - yes, that's possible

    @siucdude - will look into this and will release a new version if needed

    @Realtimefreak - try using image magick for better results

    @George - You could turn off EXIF support. Also, could you upload one of these photos to a ticket at http://code.google.com/p/tidypics/issues/list

  • Ive added some pics to an album i created an have been trying unsuccessfully to delete some from that album. please help, thanx
