Greenguy Suggestions For A New Admin For The Link O'Rama

I've been debating moving The Link O'Rama to TGPX for a couple months now, but the thought of making 15,000 thumbs really me. But the more I use TGPX, especially now that I streamlined adding galleries via the TGPX Spreadsheet For Importing Galleries I created, I really want to do it. But, if I'm gonna change scripts, I might as well do it right & there's a couple things I want that TGPX doesn't offer:

1 - Model Tags & Pages:

Grunting for Ramster in Elevated X has convinced me that I want to be able to tag a model in a gallery where the surfer can click her name & go to a page that has her bio & lists the other galleries I have that she's in. (Yes, I could probably do this in TGPX by adding the Models as categories, but that seems messy)

2 - Search Multiple Categories:

By this I mean I want the surfer to be able to see just the galleries that are listed in 2+ categories, like:
Petite + Teens
Amateurs + Redheads + Hairy
Busty + Milfs + Interracial + Anal

As well as mix the models with the categories, where they can see just:
Brandi Love + Interracial
Riley Reid + Anal + Lesbian

3 - Sub Categories:

LOR currently has 5 sub categories on each page:
Pay
Tube
Free
Blogs
Other

I'd like for each sub category to have different thumb sizes.

4 - Template Driven With Variables:

I do all this by hand, but basically every category page on LOR is based off this template, so I'd want the ability to easily define variables, where each category has different text for xKEYWORDUPPERx & xKEYWORDLOWERx and any other thing I come up with. Meaning I'd be able to set the Big Natural Boobs category to have:
xKEYWORDUPPERx = Big Natural Boobs
xKEYWORDLOWERx = big natural boobs
(these can't be the same & controlled by css because of Asian, Latina, etc. are always capitalized)

5 - The Basics Of TGPX:

Crop pics for thumbs (No need for the gallery scanner feature where it finds the images since I'm used to that not working on NATS URLs & doing it by hand)
Import from a spreadsheet
Schedule dates for adding & deleting
Accept submits (but I get so few I could do this by hand)
Auto-build Page 2, 3, 4, etc. once a category hits a limit
Title, Description, and # pics/vids for galleries



I basically want to combine TGPX with parts of ElevatedX

I did a couple of Google searches, but that was all paysite CMS's & adding TGP to the searches resulted in some weird mainstream stuff

Does this admin/script exist? Any suggestions?

Thanks

If TGPs were still making the money they were 10 years ago, there would be enough of a market for a developer to create and sell such a product, but there has been nothing new for TGPs since TGPX.

I've done the pornstar name as category thing, it works, but it creates other issues.
The gotcha with trying to do what you're wanting to do with TGPX is the fact that it does not create pages dynamically. The pages are all created when you do a daily rebuild, where the searches you want to do require pages built on the fly.

What you want is possible, but the cost is prohibitive in the current market.

I know Smart Thumbs won't do what you need it to do because I've been playing with it. It's major flaw is that you can't have daily galleries. It only works on a hall of fame basis.

There is also Mechbunny TGP Script. It's relatively. Not cheap (179 Euros but unlimited domains). I haven't looked at it in detail and don't know if it's regularly patched. It looks nice though.

I know 10 years ago I'd have just thrown money at a developer with my wishlist lol. But I'm in the middle of writing ElevatedX because I have the feeling their system could be modified to do what I want.

Yes you should be able to get mechbunny customized to do everything you desire.
I've only tried the tube script myself, since I already had the license it was cheaper to pay for them to integrate a thumb cropper for me than to buy the tgp script xD

I like your multiple search Idea, can't remember seeing that on any porn site before

I'll be a double dick here. All your things are very easy to achieve. After my own ventures and redoing Tommys submit I can say that its all dooable and fairly easy. BUT like Toby said, it's not worth the time.
TGPX is dying natural death. PHP OUTDATED. MYSQL calls outdated and very unsecure.

With Elevatedx you could run a tube site AND a TGP. Offer 5 minute videos that stream to surfers, photo galleries etc.

It's an odd use for it but it is efficient.

If you're stuck with tgpx remember you can set up the page with thumbs on top and text links below as you slowly build up the thumbs.

Then you can decide to have all thumbs or whatever percentage you want.

But is the cost reasonable?

I sent them a (long boring over-explaining) email yesterday to see if it's even possible, but based on what I know about ElevatedX, I think it is. After that, the cost would definitely be a factor.

That's the plan regardless of what admin I change to.

Thumb Boy OUT!

If you stick with TGPX I can sort out searchable model names for you . and maybe few other things.

I do thank you for the offer but I want a lot of things that I don't think TGPX can do, like I want to be able to add a category on-the-fly & not have to fuss around with editing a template & adding it to the admin. That & the Search Multiple Categories thing I posted earlier are 2 of the biggies.

If you specify category in the pipe delimeted import string, you can set the import to add any unknown categories automatically.

The gotcha, a typo in the category name within the import adds a new category you don't really want.

Yes, that would work...

Toby - Is there a way to do this?

I can only figure out how to show galleries that, for example, contain Petite OR Teen and I want to show galleries that contain Petite AND Teen.

I know it can be done, as AEBN's Gallery Builder has a Filter Selection that states "OR will broaden results; AND will narrow results".

You can specify which categories, when you build pages, but allowing the surfer to randomly choose two or three then generate the page dynamically is a whole different thing.

AEBN's Gallery Builder isn't using TGPX, so that isn't applicable.

I've looked at the TGPX documentation for End User Gallery Search, the example shows a drop list to select ONE category. What I don't know is what would happen if you altered the form code to allow selection of multiples. Looking at the PHP code for search.php it appears that will work, but you'd have to create a test page to see for sure.

How? Using the Petite Teen thing again, I know you can set a page to load galleries like this:
category=Petite,Teen
But that gives you everything in Petite & everything in Teen. I want just the galleries that are tagged Petite AND Teen. Am I missing something?

I was just pointing out that coding does exist where this can be done

You can specify tags when building pages, just like you do with categories. The End User Search does not have a field for users to select tags.

It could be custom coded, but it would take someone that fully understands the existing TGPX code structure.

Update, as I know everyone is just holding their breath....

ElevatedX hasn't gotten back to me so I'm gonna take a serious look at the Mechbunny TGP Script. I know art suggested it & geirlur has used other scripts of theirs, but has anyone used this one? Just looking for feedback

Mechbunny TGP looks good. The best part is that it's not abandoned script/project and co. continuooosly working on it.

Mechbunny got back to me. They can't currently do this:

So I asked him how much to code it for me Hopefully it's not too much, but I think it'd be a great option for them to add to both the TGP & Tube scripts.

Couple other questions I need clarification on, but so far...

Actually, those should not be hard queries to put together.

The bigger problem would be the presentation of the choices and getting from the user whether they want to match on all categories or any individual category.

Categories could be check boxes.

Model - maybe a dropdown. Let it be multiple select so that multiple models can be chosen.

Then under the categories check box a radio control of:

"is in all categories" or "is in any category"

Under the model select a radio of "includes all models" or "includes any model"

That would pretty much cover it, I think.
Not sure how hard it would be to add all that to the stuff you are using because I am not familiar enough with any of the scripts.

I have modified an elevated X install before, long time ago. I have never touched TGPX or Mech or Smart thumbs.

But, like I said, it shouldn't be too tremendous of an effort.

Bigger than a breadbasket, smaller than an elephant. Ya know?
