Of course, $elems[ x ] will be replace by the according value:

In other words : <cpg_gallery>1|5|1</cpg_gallery> will become CPGRndPicture(1, 5, 1, ”, ”, ”, ”); and finally :

Another example : <cpg_picture>275|1</cpg_picture> will become CPGPicture(275, 1, ”, ”, ”, ”, ”) and finally :

  1. I’m sorry, i just don’t understand how to use the tags, i have it figured out how to post X amt of random pictures from a certain gallery, but other than that, i don’t have any idea… i think i just don’t think in the ways you described how the tags work… can anyone help me better understand? the whole ($elems[ 0 ], $elems[ 1 ], $elems[ 2 ], $elems[ 3 ], $elems[ 4 ], $elems[ 5 ], $elems[ 6 ]) thing just confuses me!

  2. I saw that you were able to display the symbol “< " in your comment, can you tell me how you do that ? In my blog, when I type "<" or ">“, they are interpreted as PHP codes. But I want to make
    them appear as text. Can you enlighten me on this ?

  3. You get the “picture id” via the Administration page (within the url). In the coming release, as you can see on this site, the “picture id” is displayed once you put your mouse over the picture (title of the image).

  4. Hi, your software is indeed very interesting, I have got it to work on my blog. The only
    problem that I have trouble understanding is how do we know what is the picture number in the
    Coppermine Gallery ? In fact, since all the album are only has a “album name”, how do we know
    what is the “album number ” ? Can you kindly help me here ?

    Thank you.
