Shutting Down the Aquoid Support Forum

This post essentially marks the end-of-life of support for Suffusion from this website. The Aquoid Support Forum was the one-stop-shop for Suffusion support as well as for support provided for other plugins I have built over the years. However it was beset by problems, primary among them being the insanely high number of spammers who […]

Happy New Year! On my second day back from my break I have been able to release version 2.17 of Photonic.

It managed twice […]

Photonic Version 2.12 – Magnific and More Lightbox Capabilities

If you haven’t heard, WP 5.0 featuring Gutenberg is here. If you haven’t had a chance to form your opinion about it, do ensure that you download a copy of the “Classic Editor” plugin to recover from any shock caused by Gutenberg. Displaying behaviour that has been symptomatic of Gutenberg all along, I will move […]

Photonic Version 2.11 – JavaScript Optimization and Bug Fixes

I have released version 2.11 of Photonic with the following changes: JavaScript Optimization When Photonic started out in September 2011 it only had support for two lightboxes – Colorbox and Fancybox. About a month later I added support for PrettyPhoto, and then for a long period of time I didn’t add anything else. About 4 […]
