Photonic Version 1.20

I have pushed out version 1.20 of Photonic, with one big feature: authentication. Almost all providers of online services offer some sort of authentication mechanism, typically OAuth. This includes Twitter, Flickr, Google, Facebook etc. A lot of these platforms have in fact moved away from proprietary authentication mechanisms to OAuth to support third-party integration. In […]

Photonic Version 1.12

I released version 1.12 of Photonic to patch a corner-case bug with Flickr. If a Flickr photo had double quotes in its title, this would mess with the markup. I have taken care of this issue. This release has no other changes.

Photonic Version 1.09

I just released version 1.09 of Photonic. This is a small release with the following fixes: The Flickr shortcode was not able to display photos if only a group_id was specified. This has been fixed.

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.

I have added the capability to sort photos in the 500px short code. You can […]
