  1. Is this project dead?

    Is this project dead? It appears to be paid only now at trovebox but the free opensource server version looks dead on development and community?

    • lessc output is not cached even after setting mode="prod"

      I had been waiting for the mode="prod" enabled asset caching feature and couldnt wait to test and see if it worked.

      I have verified that the javascript files are being cached (html\assets\cache) once i set this property but the stylesheets are not written into that folder. Consequently all page loads are slowed down by the less compilation. This was on a headless ubuntu 14+ running an old laptop.

      I tried setting the same on a VM i run on my desktop and the feature worked as expected. Any pointers as to where i should look would be appreciated. I 'purged'…

      • Sorry this project is confused...

        Here's what I did:
        - downloaded openphoto via git, per instructions for Ubuntu
        - setup a virtual host since oddly there is no support for arbitrary base URLs
        - installed the software, instead of "openphoto" I see a logo for "trovebox", but looks nice so continue to use
        - there's a link to an android app, which is "trovebox for business" and I can't use my custom virtual host URL.

        This looks like an awesome project but this mix between the commercial project and open source is really turning me elsewhere, sorry to say :(

        • Lighttpd Addition Config

          Hi there,
          I've followed the setup instructions for hosting my own Openphoto site on a couple of OS's all using lighttpd and the site graphics are always incomplete :/

          Is there any addition modules or lines of code I should add that isn't detailed on the GitHub documentation?! I ideally want to install on my unRAID server but can't even get it working with Lighttpd on my Ubuntu 13.10 laptop!

          Any help would be greatly appreciated!

          Alex

            • Is there a forum module?

              Hello.
              I would like to use The OpenPhoto CMS as a social site for wedding photographers from my country.
              The script is excellen. It has all the features to be used in such a direction except one - the forum module.
              Will you made such module in the future?
              Thank you!

              • Wht oh why is there a redirect to eurodns after install?

                After i install openphoto. No matter what i do, i get redirected to http://www.eurodns.com/?refid=df7c5d89749b06851398aeb058925959 , which tells me , someone is making some referrer money of of this. So what is the deal with that? How is it i can't get a decent install going without these kind of tricks? It never even gets to a setup screen!

                • We were unable to initialize your account in MySql

                  I have install openphoto on ubuntu 12.04.

                  When I load openphoto for the first time and try to setup Mysql I get the following error:

                  Please fix the following errors
                  We were unable to initialize your account in MySql.
                  Please verify that the host, username and password are correct and have proper permissions to create a database.
                  Make sure your email address is not already in use.

                  How do I solve this issue? Where do I find the logs?

                  • Admin Page

                    I installed OpenPhoto on our server and we are planning to give access to a bunch of photographers to show their work publicly. Some of their photos will be displayed on our main website.

                    An admin area would be very useful for me to create new users, reset passwords, and select which photos will show up on our main website.

                    • oauth_problem=timestamp_refused

                      I have successfully integrated the hosted version of OpenPhoto (Trovebox) with my website. Everything works on the development platform, but when I upload the code to the production platform (Dreamhost shared server in US), I get an "oauth_problem = timestamp_refused".

                      stdClass Object
                      (
                      [message] => oauth_problem=timestamp_refused
                      [code] => 403
                      [result] =>
                      )

                      Whats interesting is if I keep refreshing the browser, 1 out of 6-7 hits eventually results in a success.

                      Any ideas as to what might be going on?

                      Many thanks.

                      Regards,

                                • Rename this UserVoice "TroveBox" and advertise it on the main website for user feedback

                                  This page is great to figure out what the users want the most.

                                  However, users can not find this page easily anymore.

                                  It would be great to see this page renamed "trovebox.uservoice.com", and advertise it on the main website.

                                  The github issue tracker could be an alternative (with the tag "wishlist"); however, it is less novice-friendly, it is difficult to find and it should probably mainly be used for bugs.

                                  This would fit in the open philosophy of the project.

                                  • Unguessable URLs for easy sharing

                                    I don't want to make my photos public, but I definitely want to share specific photos or albums by sending a link in an email or in chat. This is a solved problem.

                                    Picasaweb has a "link to this photo" or "link to this album" option on every applicable page. You can share the photo/album regardless of whether it is public or private by pasting the secure URL it generates. Here is an example URL:
                                    https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/G9Ktu9seDO_ezM2zEgwKir4ZqS4wpk7sCROeUSelOAU?feat=directlink
                                    They also have the option to reset the secret URL for albums.

                                    Flickr also has this feature, they call it a "Guest Pass".

                                    Google…

                                      • Find photos without albums/tags

                                        How can I find all photos that is not assigned to any albums (or tags)? IMHO these should be easily accessible on the albums/tags pages as this would be useful for organizing photos that I forgot to tag when I uploaded them.

                                        • Easier tag removal

                                          Removing tags from a photo now requires you to remember the name of the tag and use batch-edit -> manage tags and write the tag manually. As a minimum, this should have autocomplete, or better all tags should be listed just as the albums are. It should also be possible to remove tags using the tags-list on the single-photo-view.
