Photonic Version 2.23 – Minor Release to Work Around RetinaJS

A common malaise I have seen with multiple themes (particularly those obtained from beyond https://wordpress.org/themes, such as Divi, Avada and a bunch of ThemeForest themes) is the inclusion of buggy scripts from other sources. Such scripts often cause unintended conflicts with well-coded plugins for no fault of the plugins’. One issue that had dogged Photonic […]

Photonic Version 2.22 – Patch for Conditional Inclusion of Scripts

I had made a rather uncharacteristic error in the previous version of Photonic, which necessitated a patch so quickly. I have made version 2.22 of Photonic public today with the following changes: The conditional inclusion of scripts was not working for Gutenberg blocks. This was a careless error on my part, and I have rectified […]

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. This version has the following bug fixes: Zenfolio photosets with “smart” names were not being pulled up correctly. E.g. If you had a photoset that had an id such as “birthday”, that wouldn’t show. […]

Version 2.15 – Shortcode Generator Enhancements

In the middle of the holidays I managed to quickly code up some improvements to Photonic. This release has the following changes: I added a “filter” capability in the interactive workflow to generate shortcodes. Particularly in cases where you have way too many albums, the filter will let you rapidly narrow your search results. I […]
