Possible to have shorter urls for images?

Postby foreseit » Tue Jan 08, 2008 6:42 am

Hi, sorry in advance if this has been answered already. :)

I'm using my Sig Gen pics for my signature on my guild website. We use Drupal, and with the old roster I used to have an impressively large signature. I had [Char 1 sig][Char 2 ava][Char 3 ava][Char 4 ava].

Now b/c of the new naming convention, I can't fit more than [Char 1 sig][Char 2 ava/sig] in my signature. Since I play on Chars 1-3 equally, I'd like to be able to include at least 3 characters into my signature.

I had solved the problem by switching to the alternative URLs, but that apparently breaks several other addons (Made By, Faction Rep, etc). Now I'm back to the normal URLs, and therefore, less stuff in my signature.

Any suggestions?

(PS - off topic - if I install a new sig gen version, will it erase all the changes I made to my SigGen's positioning/colors/etc?)

The several other addons (Made By, Faction Rep, etc) are not coded correctly by using the makelink() function in Roster

You can use mod_rewrite the same way used in SigGen for 1.7.3
If I can remember, I'll work something up when I get home

Both alternate and normal urls always work and produce the pages you'd expect. The alternate url on/off setting only influences what kind of internal links roster generates.

Shorter URL's for signatures and avantar ?

Have a look a my root .htaccess file:
Code: Select all
...
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
...
RewriteRule ^/?(signature|avatar)/(.*)$ /roster/index.php?p=util-siggen-$1&a=c:1&member=$2
...


My roster (version 1.9.9.xxx with SigGen [v0.3.0.328] for Roster 2.0) is situated in the roster sub-directory.

Now, an "signature URL" like:
Code: Select all
http://www.papy-team.fr/signature/Nowwhat@EU-Khaz%20Modan

does the job.

I know. The html select is some what mind boggling when used with makelink().
I asked for some help here- but didn't saw anything yet.
I have to put my mind on it - I know it should work... I'll be back on that one.

There are examples of select boxes using makelink() in Roster already
Check out the pvplog addon

I know, Zanix, but this example is scarry.

I put on Alternative urls.

I modelled my addon as PvPlog (the first 20 lines - that were I took the code from anyway :wink: ).

It works, reputation, as pvplog, but I still have a problem with is - both addons show a very strange behaviour.

I'll explain: I select the PvPlog addon with its icon (you have it also).
Ok, that works.
Now, I select something in the select box -> works!!

Again, select something else: works !! (etc etc)
And again...

Now, have a look at the address bar :shock:

I have something like this:
Code: Select all
http://www.papy-team.fr/roster/guild/pvplog/guild/pvplog/a=g:1/guild/pvplog/a=g:1/guild/pvplog/a=g:1/guild/pvplog/a=g:1/guild/pvplog/a=g:1/guild/pvplog/a=g:1/type=enemylosses.html

This can't be normal.
It seems to be harmless, thought.

The behaviour, as described, is visible here : http://www.papy-team.fr/roster - use pvplog or reputation addon.
You'll get the picture.
Is this a (my) server issue - and only valid for me?

When I remove the roster .htaccess file, Alternative urls won't work at all, that normal (isn't it ?).

My main site .htaccess file has 'nothing' that is roster related in it.

Works just fine for me in Firefox

I just tried IE and it does exactly what you said
My server is down and apart, so I can't test anything

In addons/pvplog/guild/index.php, edit lines 53 and 57 and add true as the last parameter to each makelink()

The .htaccess file is definitely required for alternative urls

THIS nails it down. Your the man !!
PvPlog isn't showing the growing issue issue anymore.
Tried 4 browsers in normal (worked already) and Alternative mode.

reputations is ok now.
I'll up new version when I get home.

Thank you very mutch.

PS : I did find someting minor when switching 'back' form Alternative to normal mode (try it), but that merits a separate post.

This means IE does not honour the <base> url (for relative links) given in the header. Or at least not in all circumstances.
