Photonic Version 1.05

I have released version 1.05 of Photonic. The following are the changes:

  1. I have introduced support for the PrettyPhoto library, in addition to the currently supported Fancybox and ColorBox. To use it, simply select it from Generic Options → Gallery Settings. Note that PrettyPhoto comes bundled with a handful of skins. You can pick a skin of your choice from Generic Options → JS Library Settings → PrettyPhoto Theme.
  2. I have also introduced the capability to launch a slideshow when you click on a thumbnail. To activate go to Generic Options → Gallery Settings and select the Slideshow mode.
  3. I added a check to determine if _wp_additional_image_sizes is present. One user reported an error regarding this.
  4. There was a bug with the thumbnail_width and thumbnail_height attribute of the plugin. The attributes should have been called thumb_width and thumb_height. I have fixed this.
  5. I fixed a bug that was not accepting the border settings.

Hope you like this release.

  1. Thank you again! I’ve been looking forward to this. I can’t and wait I will definitely make good use of this and I can’t wait to try it out. I appreciate your work and generosity very much! I should be sleeping, but since I am up anyway…it’s install time! 🙂


  2. I have added the following code to allow the sort function of 500px to be used:

    //added this part to use "sort" function (created_at, taken_at, rating, times_viewed)
    		if (isset($sort) && trim($sort) != '') {
    			$sort = trim($sort);
    			$query_url .= '&sort='.trim($sort);

    this goes in after the extraction of “rpp” in “Photonic_500px_Processor.php” before the $query_url is put together.

    You can see it at work at my blog Feel free to use it.

    Great work.


    • Thanks for the tip. What is interesting is that I have not been able to connect to the 500px site for a while now, but it seems to be working fine for you.

  3. […] I have added the capability to sort photos in the 500px short code. You can pass the sort parameter to the invocation with values created_at, rating, times_viewed and taken_at. Thanks to David Gabel for pointing this out. […]

  4. That’s really nice David. 🙂
