Last times files updated: 12 July 2010. Fix for swfupload feature.
This is a bridge between Cpg 1.5x & Joomla 1.5x that doesn't require any hack of Coppermine Core file.
Get the files right now; but make sure you read instructions after the link.
1- Install Joomla component
Go to Joomla's backend , and install the component com_coppermine15.zip . Important: Add a direct link to your Coppermine install in your Joomla website menu (example: http://www.mysite.com/cpg/) . Do not link the Coppermine Component! Remark: the component is required by the bridge even if you don't link to it
2- Install & enable bridge
file joomla15.inc.php , and copy it in the bridge folder of your gallery.
Now, enable the bridge from Coppermine. Go to Coppermine's Bridge Manager and then just follow the Bridge Wizard. You may hesitate for the option " Use post-based groups?". Answering "yes" means you'll have to manage 9 user groups ( Joomla's user types + Guests); whereas
answering "no" means you'll manage standard Coppermine groups (default Coppermine's group).
I chose "no" for the simplicity of use. Notice that the bridge provide admin rights only for two kind of Joomla's users : "Administrator"and "Super Administrator"
3- Enabling visual integration
You can skip this step of course if your not interested by visual integration.
Go to Coppermine's Plugin
Manager. Install the plugin cpg1.5.x_plugin_joomla_visualinteg.zip.
After integration of Coppermine inside your Joomla's Template, you may have noticed some CSS related problems. If you put a second stylesheet named style2.css
, inside the folder of your current Coppermine's theme, the bridge will detect the new css stylesheet and use it instead of the default one i.e style.css
. Thus, better use a second style2.css
to perform all necessary modifications; this way the original file style.css
will remain intact and available if you unbridge. The CSS Integrator
page allows to perform automatically all essential CSS fix
. Just browse and indicate your style.css
file, submit, rename the processed file into style2.css
, and then put it in your theme folder. Note: style2.css
for the Curve theme already provided.
