Plugins

Starting from cpg1.4.x, coppermine comes with a plugin API that enables plugin authors to modify coppermine features without hacking the core code, making upgrading easier, as modifications don't have to be re-applied every time you upgrade your coppermine version. It's recommended to use plugins instead of code modifications that require hacking the core code.

This page is meant to provide an overview about the existing plugins.

Attention! As this overview isn't updated frequently, it's recommended to have a look at the appropriate plugin contributions boards for cpg1.4.x and cpg1.5.x if you haven't found your desired plugin.

Visit the plugin announcement thread by clicking on the plugin name. Download the plugin by clicking on the download icon () next to the plugin name. Click on the author name to see the plugin author's profile. Do not send unrequested private messages or emails to the plugin authors unless you have explicit permission from them! Visit the announcement thread for a particular plugin if you need support or to check if a newer version of the plugin is available.

Read up the documentation that comes with coppermine for details, e.g. how to install a plugin.

With most plugins comes a readme file that explains important details about the plugin - before asking for individual help, please make sure that you have read the plugin's readme file and corresponding announcement thread.

Admin tool Mass Import Plugin conversion of timer.php called MassImport designed to replace "batch adding" such that it doesn't require you to babysit the batch add process and you can throttle the adds so that you don't invite your webhost to waggle their no-no finger at you.

Admin tool Link Target Changes the way external links are being opened: when this plugin is enabled, all links that contain the attribute rel="external" will open in a new window (instead of the same window). This has the same effect as the use of the target="_blank" attribute, but it will not render your HTML output invalid.
No separate download - plugin comes with coppermine out of the box.

Admin tool Move To Public Move user albums to public categories. This can be done in cpg1.5.x out of the box, so the key benefit of this plugin is the option to perform this move for several albums at once.

Admin Tool Image Manipulation (Pixastic) This plugin allows the visitor to non-destructively manipulate the image using new buttons on displayimage.php. It will add ~20 kbyte of javascript to the page.
A slider for image brightness and the following effect buttons will be available:
  • Reset
  • B/W
  • Invert
  • Emboss
  • Flip vertically
  • Flip horizontally
  • Blur
Browser compatibility: The effects work fine with IE 5.5+, Opera 9.5+, Firefox 2+, Chrome 3+ and most other browsers (they should work, too or fall back nicely). Please note: This plugin will only work if 'Insert a transparent overlay to minimize image theft' is deactivated in coppermine's config.
Compatibility: this plugin and the plugin 'mirror' may not be used at the same time. The buttons will only be available for visitors with javascript turned on. Others won't notice a thing.

Admin tool phpMyAdmin This plugin contains a copy of phpMyAdmin. This is a commonly used database administration tool recommended by the Coppermine Dev Team for the purposes of modifying your Coppermine tables manually or performing backups of the database. If you install it you will get a link on your admin menu that will load phpmyadmin in an iframe. It uses the database information from Coppermine so there is no additional configuration required.

Antispam ReCaptcha reCAPTCHA is a free CAPTCHA service that helps to digitize books, newspapers and old time radio shows. reCAPTCHA improves the process of digitizing books by sending words that cannot be read by computers to the Web in the form of CAPTCHAs for humans to decipher. More specifically, each word that cannot be read correctly by OCR is placed on an image and used as a CAPTCHA. This is possible because most OCR programs alert you when a word cannot be read correctly.

Feature removal Final Extract The final_extract plugin removes core blocks from the final HTML produced by Coppermine, just before it is displayed to the user on the web page. This is probably the best way to remove things like menu buttons and other core items like links and buttons throughout the various pages Coppermine produces. This plugin version comes with usergroup settings by admin panel: you can define for each usergroup the menu elements to display (or to hide). The settings are done by an admin panel. If a new group is created, it is taken into account and can be also parameterized.

Visual enhancement Mirror This plugin generates a mirror-like reflection on displayimage.php just below the image. The effect is client-sided, so there's no additional server load. The effect is tested and works fine with IE>=6, Firefox >=1.5, Opera, Chrome, Safari. It's only 2,2 KByte of Javascript that is added to the page.
Mirror will only work if "Insert a transparent overlay to minimize image theft" is deactivated. Feel free to adapt the size and opacity of the reflection by editing mirror.js to your needs.

Visual enhancement ImSharpen Sharpen intermediate pics: If you install this plugin, the thumb sharpening settings from the main settings page will also be valid for freshly generated intermediate pictures. To modify old intermediate pictures, use the admin utils to re-generate them. Note: Thumb sharpening must be enabled for this to work. If you install the plugin without enabling thumb sharpening, nothing will happen.
