Photonic Version 1.25

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 […]

Photonic Version 1.24

I released version 1.24 of Photonic a while back. This version has the following changes: Date filtering support for 500px.com: This is thanks to code contributed by Bart Kuipers. You can add “Date from” and “Date to” fields for your 500px.com photos. I also removed the JQuery Dimensions script from the plugin – this was […]

Photonic Version 1.23

After a long time I managed to do something on Photonic. This is for the users of 500px.com: Photonic now supports tag and term based search of images. In addition, the following new capabilities have been added for 500px.com: Support for category exclusion by use of the exclude parameter Inclusion of some more “sort by” […]

Photonic Version 1.22

I have released version 1.22 of Photonic with the following changes: There was a problem with the authentication behaviour. If you weren’t connected to the internet and authentication options were switched on, your site would return fatal errors. This shouldn’t happen any more. I had earlier erroneously stated the license of PrettyPhoto to be “Creative […]

Photonic Version 1.21

Version 1.21 of Photonic addresses 2 things: SmugMug password-protected photos will now be visible to users who have authenticated into the system and have access to the photos. There was a bug in SmugMug’s popup albums that was killing the last photo. So you would always see one photo less than the total if the […]

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 1.11

I have released version 1.11 of Photonic. The following are the changes for this release: I have combined some JavaScript files to save server round-trips. I have deleted some redundant JS files. I have also added the capability to use a default gallery type. This way if you decide to use only Flickr photos on […]

Photonic Version 1.10

I just released a small patch for Photonic in version 1.10. SmugMug albums, upon clicking were not resulting in a popup. This should be working fine now. Suffusion Beta Testers, please provide your feedback on the beta version!! I have only received one person’s response regarding it.

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. Another fix was for a very specific use case: the album / photoset title in a popup panel was resulting […]
