It's just not easy enough

I'm not a big fan of zoom, especially their terrible forum and support. Gallery 2 puts zoom to shame IMO. But that's another story.

Since it's integrated and works in the CB tabs I installed zoom. It works fine. I'm a geek. I figured it out.

But if you're trying to build a community, uploading pictures needs to be EASY AND INTUITIVE. In myspace you click your mouse 2, maybe 3 times and you've uploaded a pic. Zoom? Many clicks and configuring and the like. It's just not going to be easy enough for some computer illiterate person to figure out.

There needs to be something very easy for users to add photos to their CB profile/site.

here you are!
www.joomlapolis.com/content/view/434/1/

Also you can get zoom works easy,
A little hack to simple the upload function of zoom (frontend). All the unnececery fields are gone ;)
Also you can create a 'menu' button in the CBRC2 profile menu
like the screenshot, the text is dutch. But i think that you can see the point .
Here is the code to get the zoom link in the menu

Just add this code after line 834 (You can put it in a other place) (file: components/cb/plugins/user/menu/menu.php

Code:
// ZOOM!:
$mi = array(); $mi["_UE_MENU_EDIT"]["_UE_MENU_ZOOM"]=null;
$this->menuBar->addObjectItem($mi, _UE_MENU_PONY,sefRelToAbs($ue_zoom_url), "",
"<img src=\"".$adminimagesdir."newavatar.gif\" alt='' />","", _UE_MENU_UPDATEPROFILE_DESC,"");


Then go to line :780 (URL STRING)
And at this line:
Code:
$ue_zoom_url = "index.php?option=com_zoom&Itemid=52&page=upload&formtype=multiple";


Then open the lang. file from comprofiler:
and make a new line:
Code:
DEFINE('_UE_MENU_zoom','Upload a picture in the album');

I'll give that a try. I'm assuming the user must have already created an album for himself or does it do that too?

Hmm. I'm getting this:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected '\"' in /home/xxxx/public_html/components/com_comprofiler/plugin/user/plug_cbmenu/cb.menu.php on line 838

And do the files in the zip you attached go in the com_zoom folder?

Ok I had to change the code a bit. This is what worked:


[code:1] // ZOOM!:
$mi = array(); $mi["_UE_MENU_EDIT"]["_UE_MENU_ZOOM"]=null;
$this->menuBar->addObjectItem($mi, _UE_MENU_PONY,sefRelToAbs($ue_zoom_url), "",
"<img src=\"".$adminimagesdir."newavatar.gif\" alt='' />","", _UE_MENU_UPDATEPROFILE_DESC,""«»);[/code:1]

Now I need to figure out how to make it name the menu item something other than _UE_MENU_PONY... got it.

I had to add this to the language:


[code:1]DEFINE('_UE_MENU_PONY','Upload Photos To Photo Gallery');[/code:1]

Now it works and takes you right to the multiple file upload. The only problem I see now is if the user doesn't have an album set up yet he wouldn't know what to do....

Changed over go G2. I just changed the URL to the G2 gallery rather than the zoom upload and it worked great hehe.
