Repurposing gallery from store

Repurposing gallery from store

I own PowerGallery and PowerStore. The gallery in powerstore utilizes PG but lacks one feature that I am trying to figure out. In PG, when you use "add to site" it gives you a direct link AND a php include. In PS, the php option isn't presented. I am tying two domains together, repurposing images from the cart, so I want to link to a gallery (for "you might be interested in these products" type of option). The first site links to the cart for actual purpose.

If the direct link to a PS/PG is

index.php?gallery=4&theme=light

(and is added to the product in the long description area via "add gallery" icon)

and the link from a non-store, Power Gallery php include is:

<?php
$pg_id = '1';
$pg_theme = 'light';
include('/var/www/html/gallery/galleries/ribbon_fullsize_lightbox/index.php');
?>

where the DOMAINNAME is not noted

what can I change in the php include to reflect the PS/PG gallery as an include?

I tried replacing var/www/html/ with the domain, and replaced id= 1 with the id of the store gallery, but that didn't work.

Thanks so much.

Sorry...this should have been posted in PowerStore.

if you go to the Power Store Admin page, then go to Content -> Galleries


next to each gallery is a Preview button, click this, select the gallery settings and click OK

this will open the gallery in a new browser window, make note of the URL in the address bar, this is your gallery link address.

Yes, I figured that part out, but I'm looking for the php include path.

Thanks

I see, i misunderstood the initial question.


the include function will not be able to access files from another server, this will not work.

it would require a fair bit of unsupported coding using either the fopen() or curl() to access the files on another domain.

"it would require a fair bit of unsupported coding using either the fopen() or curl() to access the files on another domain."


Can you expand on what is needed here? I will share with server tech to see if this can be done. It is very important to this project. Thanks much.

filesystem.configuration.php

Is this what you are referencing? php.ini per domain to allow? Or do you mean something else, such as on the page to call the real gallery and not the holder image

(domain)store/galleries/grid_lightbox/admin/light_large.png

Thanks so much.

php.ini in that domain reads:

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; Fopen wrappers ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

; Whether to allow the treatment of URLs (like http:// or ) as files.
allow_url_fopen = On


Yet, manual references:

allow_url_fopen "1"
PHP_INI_ALL PHP_INI_ALL in PHP <= 4.3.4. PHP_INI_SYSTEM in PHP < 6. Available since PHP 4.0.4.


is On the same as "1"

phpinfo.php shows it on

allow_url_fopen On On
allow_url_include Off Off

This is not supported functionality, you would need to create code using either fopen or curl to access the Gallery page on one domain and pull the code over to the other domain.
