Trading Poster
« on: February 03, 2010, 09:54:20 AM »
Not sure on how to do the pretty pictures but recent arrivals are:

As you are a user of DVD Profiler, you could do it with my "Trading Poster TG" plugin. There you have the option to generate a code for this forum to list the front cover images of the flagged titles.
Or you can configure the custom trading poster (in the plugin settings). For example like this:

Custom Header:
Code: [Select]
[table]
Custom Body:
Code: [Select]
[tr][td][img]TP_ImageURL[/img] [/td]
[td] [img]http://www.invelos.com/images/TP_MediaTypeLogo.png[/img][b]TP_Title[/b]

[/td][/tr]

Custom Footer:
Code: [Select]
[/table]



Okay,, so I download the plug in and have installed it.

Now what do I do?

Goto Tools->View Plugins...
Select the TradingPosterTG plugin and select "Options..."

Fill out the sections on the right side with the code above.

After OK, "Collection->Flagged->Custom Trading Poster" will copy the code for this forum for the flagged profiles into clipboard.
This function is also available in toolbar.

Because you did install Ken's Trading Poster and not mine ;)
Mine is the "Trading Poster TG".

I don't know exactly how Ken's cache mechanism works but after I watched the profile in your online collection, I can now see that image here, too.

Nothing. The cover displays now.
One thing you have to know about using cover images from Invelos server:
If no one ever has viewed the cover images of the profile in question in an Invelos online collection, the image will not be available elsewhere.
So if you upload a new cover image, you will have to view it at least once in your online collection to be able to see it here.

Edit: Karsten beat me to it.

Interesting tidbit. I wasn't aware of that.

Or if it was used at least once in a trading poster at invelos.com.
It seems that the online covers are only build after it is needed for the first time on invelos.com.

Thanks Tom!



I hads some troubles with the old version (something about character lengths...?). I will test this with this new version and if it persists I will repost here.

 :thanks: version 1.1 is working great for me, without the above help I would never have figured out the custom section.

This is the Trading Poster code for the Invelos forum. If you want to use this plugin, you will have to the custom trading poster code, which you will have to configure first. I personally do not use it for the WhatYaGot thread (I use a HTML window for this), but I will try to post an example.

Edit: I see you got it figured out :)
