picpages 1.0.1 README 18 august, 2004 this is my picpages scripts, this time in PHP. i rewrote it to be significantly more flexible, this is basically a drop in package for people. UPDATE - 1.0.1 this version fixes some display bugs for Safari/OS X and IE on Windows. REQUIREMENTS you'll have to have a web server that can understand PHP scripts already configured. you'll have to write access to your web directory. that's it. no database, nothing else needed ... INSTALLATION in the directory of pictures, drop the "index.php" script and CSS file ppstyles.css in there. pictures, captions, the stylesheet, and the index.php script are all in the same directory. when you create a new album, you should install these files in there, too. browse to that directory, ie http://my.server.com/~me/pictures/camping/index.php that's it, and now you can add captions, too. well, you may also want to customize it with your name ... CAPTIONING pictures are captioned in files name with the number of the page (ie "1") followed by the ".txt" extension, starting at 0. the caption for picture 1 would be stored in "1.txt", in the same directory as the index.php script and the picture. caption files can be multiline. CUSTOMIZATION you have a few files which deal with customization for your script ... TITLE -- the title for the current picture set. NAME -- your name, so people know who you are HOMEPAGE -- your homepage as a URL EMAIL -- so people know how to contact you CSS CSS (cascading style sheets) support is available now (thanks to eldan) using the supplied stylesheet, "ppstyles.css". edit this file to change styles and colors as desired. HISTORY picpages started life as a series of korn shell (ksh93a) scripts that generated static pages. they worked with tools like "ImageMagik" to resize and rotate images and order them. this was reworked in mid-2004 to be a single PHP script which increased flexibility. version 1.0 introduced CSS support and fixed a few bugs, and also validates as valid XHTML 1.0 transitional. AUTHOR the primary author of picpages is jose nazario, with added functionality from eldan. patches always welcome. validation help from cameron and natarajan.
