Here you can find few addons which I made especially for Pixelpost:

GeoS Date Navigator ADDON

This addon gives you possibility to navigate through images using dates of publication.
Big thanks for Jay Williams for support in first tests.

Just unpack files from directories within package to corespondent directories at your blog (watch out to not overwrite .htaccess if you have such already!!!).Then patch /index.php file using short description inside /index.php.geos_date_nav_patch.php.Then make sure that for mod_rewrite functionality you have .htaccess file in main directory of Pixelpost installation and it have inside line like:
RewriteEngine on
If you have empty .htaccess or you even don’t have then it is enough to upload this one from package to main directory of Pixelpost installation.
There is also unix.htaccess file – same file as .htaccess but by dafault it is also visible on Unix/Linux/MacOS Operating Systems in compare to files
with names starting from dot.

After all you should configure addon. There are two variables:
$dn_modrewrite – for switching between mod_rewrite mode enabled/disabled
$dn_withseconds – for switching between full date/time support and short form (remember that using short one will skip images which have same date and will show only one of them!!!)

At last step there is enough to put into your template file correct code.
Go to /templates/name_of_your_template/images_template.html
Open it in normal text editor (no Word and so one, just Notepad, EditPad Pro or any other plain text editor).
Put into this file example code (version with disabled mod_rewrite):

<a href=”index.php?<DN_IMAGE_PREVIOUS_LINK>”>PREV IMG</a> <a href=”index.php?<DN_IMAGE_CURRENT_LINK>”><img src=”/templates/name_of_your_template/current_img_path.jpg” height=”20″ width=”30″ border=”0″/></a> <a href=”index.php?<DN_IMAGE_CURRENT_LINK>”>CURRENT IMAGE ONCE MORE</a> <a href=”index.php?<DN_IMAGE_NEXT_LINK>”>NEXT IMAGE</a>

And version for mod rewrite:
<a href=”/<DN_IMAGE_PREVIOUS_LINK>”>PREV IMG</a> <a href=”/<DN_IMAGE_CURRENT_LINK>”><img src=”/templates/name_of_your_template/current_img_path.jpg” height=”20″ width=”30″ border=”0″/></a> <a href=”/<DN_IMAGE_CURRENT_LINK>”>CURRENT IMAGE ONCE MORE</a> <a href=”/<DN_IMAGE_NEXT_LINK>”>NEXT IMAGE</a><br/><br/>

In both cases this should produce 3 text links for previous, current and next pictures and one image link to current picture.

Available tags:
<DN_IMAGE_PREVIOUS_LINK> – gives part of link to previous image (just part of it for sure needed for addons proper work)
<DN_IMAGE_NEXT_LINK> – gives part of link to next image (just part of it for sure needed for addons proper work)
<DN_IMAGE_CURRENT_LINK> – gives part of link to current image (just part of it for sure needed for addons proper work)

Rev: 37:
* added new file called linux.htaccess for all of users for who .htaccess is
invisible (all Unix/Linux/MacOS systems by default treat such files
as invisible) – thx to Jay Williams
* now addon generates just part of links for more flexible usage (it solves
problem of absolute URLs and some other things) – thx to Jay Williams

Rev: 34:
* this is initial revision; have fun using it

GeoS Show Category ADDON

This addon gives you possibility to watch images on front page within choosen category.
To do so you need to add extra variable to standard URL – category=CAT_ID.
I.e. URL should look like – this will give you possibility to watch only images from caterogy with ID = 10
For URLs without specified category variable it works normally just like standard Pixelpost.
Example site is below in DEMO section.

Addon & download page:

People ask where they can see it online. Right now I dont know any place where current version is running BUT very similar to this release you can see at Vernon Trents site. The only difference is that its one month old and released in unofficial way, especially for him.

History 55:
* New tag – – gives the list with links to categories redirecting to the newest image in selected cat. It shows also the number of images in bracket. (thx to Vernon Trent for inspiration)
* Now there is no need to set any configuration inside addon code – all data are stored in DB.
* Added support of bilingual category names – based on Pixelpost 1.6 (thx goes to luxtom)
* Added tags for filename of next and previous thumbnail – and (this time thx also goes to luxtom)

History 46:

* fixed bug with images not ordered descending by date in one of cases in browse mode

History 25:
* fixed bug of not showing thumbnails in browse_template (thx to ullmannn)
* fixed bug of incorrect version numbering

History 24:
* at first here it is – new method of version numbering as I’m currently using SVN in my development process
* all who use this addon also in archives now they can use paging support – there is 1 new tag <SC_THUMBNAILS_NAV> which gives page navigation through thumbnails in browse_template
* now inside selectable list with categories active one is marked
* all unique elements visible in HTML code have own ID or class (if there is more same elements)
* as some of users were saying about problems with chr(10) at ends of lines now there isn’t such solutions
* as archive now supports links with multiple categories next point on TODO list is to add such support in image preview mode (currenly there is no way to go from archive and watch just selected categories straight from it; there is such option only at start watching images from image preview navigation)

History 1.6:
* 2 new tags <SC_THUMB_ROW> and <SC_THUMB_ROW_REV> which gives option to put row of thumbnails with same category as current; there is additional configuration variable $sc_th_row for enable/disable this future

* now previous & next title when are empty are set with proper text for it – No Previous Image & No Next Image (thx to RobbieMc)
* code for showing first image in category (when URL has got only category variable in query string) is optimized – instead of additional SQL querys and code for additional tags there is redirect to show image in “standard” way; this makes enable EXIF and whole rest of futures which were available before installing this addon and before case which we are talking in this point
* starting from this version there is archive to previous version for people who wants to get older versions (from many reasons) – this will be a standard for all my new developed addons

* Added new tag <SC_BROWSE_CATEGORY> which gives form with selectable category (thx for inspiaration to RobbieMc)
* Added configuration variables inside script which tell if code for form with selectable category should be executed (for this who dont use this form it will speed up addon) and if you want to get current image ID under sc_image_next_id or sc_image_previous_id when you are watching image at one of ends (once more time thx to RobbieMc)
