Hi,

It’s me again. I still have one question. The screens which are displayed on the blog. Where are those stored? Are those stored on Apple’s servers? If yes, is this legally allowed?

thundersquared

Yep, the screens are stored on Apple’s servers and this is legally allowed because Apple gives them by their API .

Cheers :)

Amazing. Sounds good.

Grazie!

Cliophate

Oh, by the way. Could you show me the API please? I’d like to have a look at it for another project:)

Is is possible to add a custom css example?

thundersquared

You should use the base we give in the plugin’s folder. You should use the same classes and ids. Then upload as box.css or paste it in the Options Page.

Hello Thunder.

We’ve already purchased this, and have been using it successfully for some time. It’s great!

However, we were just wondering; is it possible to now grab the new 4-inch, iPhone 5 screenshots displayed by the new iTunes Store redesign in iTunes 11?

thundersquared

Hi razorianflycom,
Apple actually offers the normal screenshots. The 4-inch ones should automatically display when Apple updates the API with this function.

Cheers,
Anatoli.

Hi Thundersquared,

Plugin didn’t work on my TF Theme Libra. Instead of the app screens there are 5 little placeholder images. Any chance to solve this?

Thanks

thundersquared

Hi goldeneye,
do your server meet the requirements? You should have cURL or file_get_contents module installed and active. Also, check if the app is present in the store of the country you’ve set in API Translation section (if not set, it’s US).

Cheers,
Anatoli.

Hi Thundersquared,

Our site meets the requirements, we have checked the API translation to the correct country and we still cannot get the icon or screen images to show up, we have disabled all the plugins, we have tried this on a test default theme and still end up with the same result?

No app icon icon or app screens.

Do you have any others suggestions on how we can get this to work?

Do we need a tradedoubler link for this to work, or can we use this plugin without it.

Kind Regards.

thundersquared

Hi Bailous,
Is the plugin working in the other parts? Do you have GD libraries installed?

Contact us by the profile form to get the issue fixed.

Well, I have already purchased your google play plugin. Going to buy your 3 other plugins for my new site. Beacase, I’m going to use all your plugins for my app review section. Thank you so much for making this awesome plugins. Before that, I want to know that, Will the screen images are index-able by google images? Is it seo optimized?

Hi Akhil,
we’re glad to hear this from you. The images should be index-able if Google searches into your feed or post content. If it’s not, help us to improve this functions and help others too.

Cheers,
Anatoli

Hi – LOVE the plugin! But I have a request; When an app has screens for both the iPhone and the iPad it would be nice if the iPad screens showed first sequentially AND THEN show the iPhone screens. Sometimes the iPhone screens are so small when they’re in line with iPad screens that they appear to be teeny tiny screens, especially when the screens are landscape orientation. I know people can click on ‘em to enlarge ‘em, but still.

For example, see the screens that appear mid-way down on this page: http://autismepicenter.com/wordup/2013/05/25/articulation-station-2/

Thank you!

thundersquared

Hey,
this is possible. In appstore_screens.php you can set a default height instead the width at line 114 for iPhone screens and at line 120 for iPad screens. Moving the whole code between line 117 and 122 included before line 111 will switch the order from iPhone then iPad to iPad then iPhone.

Cheers,
Anatoli.

SWEET! Thanks for the tip!

I made some changes, but now I get this error on my pages and the pages don’t load:

You may have something like this now:
$out .= '<a href="' . $screen[$i] . '" target="_blank"><img src="data:image/jpg;base64,' . ts_b64Image($screen[$i], $kind_swidth) . '" height="400" /></a>';
well, you have to remove the base64 encoding, making it like this:
$out .= '<a href="' . $screen[$i] . '" target="_blank"><img src="' . $screen[$i] . '" height="400" /></a>';

;)

I tried to make those changes and my code was jacked. My page wouldn’t even show. I speak fluent street slang, jive, and regular ol’ English. But I don’t know php to save my life.

Line 113 I have this:

"$out .= '<a href="' . $iscreen[$i] . '" target="_blank"><img src="data:image/jpg;base64,' . ts_b64Image($iscreen[$i], '300') . '" width="300" /></a>';"

Line 118 I have this:

$out .= '<a href="' . $screen[$i] . '" target="_blank"><img src="data:image/jpg;base64,' . ts_b64Image($screen[$i], $kind_swidth) . '" width="240"'" .="" /></a>';

Can you translate for me and tell me exactly what it SHOULD say? :-)

thundersquared

The main thing to do is to remove the base64 encoded image which starts with data:image/jpg;base64, and works with a function ts_b64Image($screen[$i], $kind_swidth) from which one we kept $screen[$i], the screen URL.

Here are the changes:
$out .= '<a href="' . $iscreen[$i] . '" target="_blank"><img src="' . $iscreen[$i] . '" width="300" /></a>';
$out .= '<a href="' . $screen[$i] . '" target="_blank"><img src="' . $screen[$i] . '" width="240" .="" /></a>';

Cheers,
Anatoli.

OK, I changed my code but now my page doesn’t display at all. Here’s my code:

    $out = '<div class="appstore_screens">';
    if ($screen != '') {
        for ($i = 0; $i < count($screen); $i++) {
                        $out .= '<a href="' . $iscreen[$i] . '" target="_blank"><img src="' . $iscreen[$i] . '" width="300" /></a>';
        }        
    }
    if ($iscreen != '') {
        for ($i = 0; $i < count($iscreen); $i++) {
            $out .= '<a href="' . $screen[$i] . '" target="_blank"><img src="' . $screen[$i] . '" width="240" .="" /></a>';
        }
    }
    $out .= '</div>';
thundersquared
You have to invert the complete code to output correctly.
$out = '<div class="appstore_screens">';
if ($iscreen != '') {
    for ($i = 0; $i < count($iscreen); $i++) {
        $out .= '<a href="' . $iscreen[$i] . '" target="_blank"><img src="' . $iscreen[$i] . '" width="300" /></a>';
    }
}
if ($screen != '') {
    for ($i = 0; $i < count($screen); $i++) {
        $out .= '<a href="' . $screen[$i] . '" target="_blank"><img src="' . $screen[$i] . '" width="240" .="" /></a>';
    }
}
$out .= '</div>';

Thank you! The code is working nicely now. For the future maybe you’ll make it possible to control the width/height of iPad screens that are in portrait orientation independent of those in landscape mode? And the same for iPhone screens?

I ask because as soon as I get the screen shots that are in portrait to the size I want, the ones in landscape are HUGE because they’re going by the same width (or height) setting.
