Photonic Version 1.08

A Happy New Year to all users of Suffusion and Photonic! This is a quick release for Photonic, to address the following: Google changed the Picasaweb API to return a maximum image size of 512px. I have made changes in the code to override that. I have updated the code to use the latest WP […]

Photonic Version 1.07

I have released version 1.07 of Photonic. The following are the changes in this version: I have added SmugMug support to the plugin. You can see some demo pages here. Note that the plugin currently supports unauthenticated calls. Also, you cannot use it for protected albums. In a subsequent release I will be expanding the […]

Photonic Version 1.07 Request

For a change, here is a request from my end. I am in the process of integrating SmugMug with Photonic. To build out the demo page I need permission to use some albums / photos from fine folks using the plugin. How will this help you? Well, I cannot think of any reason other than […]

Photonic Version 1.06

Version 1.06 of Photonic is now available for download. This release addresses the following: changed the mode of accessing its API from HTTP to HTTPS (and forgot to notify the developers!). I have modified the code to handle this. I have added the capability to sort photos in the 500px short code. You can […]

Photonic Version 1.05

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

Photonic Version 1.04

Yes, yes, I know I said I would fix the Suffusion bug, but I guess I am so excited about Photonic that I keep churning out one new version after another. The latest release has one big addition: 500px. This complements the current functionality of dealing with Flickr, Picasa and native WP. While I have […]

Photonic Version 1.03

Version 1.03 of Photonic is now available. This version has the following important changes: Flickr Galleries are now supported, in addition to Photosets, Collections and Photos. Some users had reported a “Division by zero” error message for Picasa galleries. While there was a very easy way to fix this (simply by re-saving or resetting the […]

Photonic Version 1.02

I uploaded a new version of Photonic today (1.02). This provides a UI interface for insertion of the shortcodes and makes it easier for you because you don’t have to remember a bunch of parameter names. I would have dearly liked to provide access to SmugMug, but I have been twiddling my thumbs since putting […]

Photonic Version 1.01

Thanks to all of you who submitted bug reports for Photonic. I have released a small patch (version 1.01) with 2 changes: The JS and CSS files in the admin panel were getting included in other admin pages – that has been fixed. I included the missing translation file, photonic.po. Thanks.

Photonic Version 1.00

Finally, after several weeks of effort I was able to push the first version of Photonic out! It is now available for download from WordPress. I had to drop some features, like some JS libraries, but at least I could get it working to a very large extent. Also, unlike Suffusion, I hope to keep […]
