This addon will make a random mosaic out of your available photos. You can control how many tiles are created and the width of the tiles. Image thumbnails are used for the tiles and are cropped by the size you specify.
How it works:
You can see it in action on my site: http://blog.kevincrafts.com/index.php?x=mosaic
I have not understood the post of Laprodo (why did you need to hack the php?). I have configured a new page mosaic_template and the addon works fine
But i've to hack the php.
At first I've change $thumbpath = ltrim($cfgrow['thumbnailpath'], "./"); to $thumbpath = "./thumbnails/"; /* ltrim($cfgrow['thumbnailpath'], "./"); */ because $cfgrow['thumbnailpath'] is empty in my case
An than I've spaces in my image names, so I've to change $mosaic .= "<a href="index.php?showimage=$pieces"> </a>"; to $mosaic .= "<a href="index.php?showimage=$pieces"> </a>"; to ensure loading.
Perhaps some stuff for next version.
Thanks a lot for your work!
