I managed to track down the oddest bug I have seen in code in a long time when I worked to release version 1.25 of Photonic. After the last release quite a few users noticed that the 500px.com module had stopped working. This was particularly surprising to me because I could see 500px.com working perfectly on my local install, but failing elsewhere, such as the demo site. I never would have guessed, but the problem was that my development environment is a 64-bit machine while my live environment is a 32-bit machine. That was causing the maximum possible integer in PHP to be evaluated differently on the two platforms, and since I was comparing dates using this number as a bound, the 64-bit and 32-bit machines were returning differing results.
Anyway, this is the gist of this version of Photonic:
- Fixed the above issue.
- There was an issue that you wouldn’t have noticed if you weren’t connected to the web – trying to view a 500px.com gallery while not connected would result in a fatal error. This has been taken care of.
Hope this fixes the 500px.com issues for you.
Thanks for this it sorted my 500px gallery perfectly now back up and running.
But I have an unresolved issue and would like to register for the support forum but I do NOT get the activation email!!
I already tried 5 times…
