  • Added a few locations where the cache will be cleared.

6.8.03 mar 05 2018

  • Due to a left-over from testing, switching to flat album table did no longer work. Fixed.
  • On the album admin page: if the album is full, two - inactive - upload/import buttons were displayed. Fixed.
  • On the photo admin screen: the caption of the exif table was not translatable. Fixed.

New Features

  • You can keep a history log of the photo of the day. See the photo of the day admin page. It will show up at the admin dashboard.

Other Changes

  • If the default photo description (Table IX-D5) contains HTML code, it will no longer be shown on the frontend upload dialog.
  • Wppa will no longer crash the sites admin at activation time when the PHP EXIF functions are not activated.

6.8.02 mar 01 2018

Bug Fixes

  • Sourcefiles got erroneoulsy removed in certain circumstances. This happened when there were two or more photos with the same name in an album and one got deleted. This also happened when a photo was deleted and re-uploaded before the background process actually removed the files of the deleted photo. This issue has been fixed.
  • w#hrurl and w#pl in photo descriptions got wrong results when the filename contained spaces or brackets. Fixed.
  • Fixes for compatibility with plugin Simple Cart & By Now. This plugin is not maintained for over three years.
    If you update to wppa version 6.8.02 and use SCABN, you MUST install the special - fixed - version to maintain compatibility.

New Features

  • Table VII-B4: Fe limts per album. If this box is ticked, the upload limits set for userroles apply to each album individually where the user has frontend oploads to.
  • You can now add browser specific css. Table IV-A15.x.
  • If the user has the right to import, there is a button on the album admin screen to import to the album, like the upload to this album button.
  • Added links to upload and import pages on the album admin main page, dependant of user rights.

Other Changes

  • On most installations you will no longer see failed uploads due to memory limitations. When there is not enough memory to downsize photos or to apply watermarks, downsizing will be skipped. Note that in those cases one can have copies of the original photofiles as thumbnail images. If this happens often, it is rcommended to set an upload size limit in Table VII-B10.2 to force users to upload smaller images, or to ask the hosting provider to increase the available sever memory.
  • Created a fixed version of plugin Simple Cart & Buy Now. You will need this special version if you previously used Simple Cart & Buy Now in combination with wppa.

6.8.01 feb 09 2018

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed layout issues of the album navigator widget and the album / photo admin pages.

New Features

  • GPS and File tags are now supported in the exif system.
    After update, the exif data will be recuprerated from the (source)files to reflect the changes made to the exif system. This is done by background processes and may take some time to complete.

Other Changes

  • Added to the bestof widget: A checkbox to display the sum of the ratings (totvalue), and the option to sort by the sum of the ratings.
  • Bestof shortcode now also supports the display of the sum of the ratings (totvalue="yes"), and the sort option to sort by the sum of the ratings (sortby="totvalue"). The full shortcode is now:
    [wppa type="bestof" page="nn" count="nn" display="photo|owner" period="thisweek|lastweek|lastmonth|thismonth|lastyear|thisyear" sortby="maxratingcount|meanrating|ratingcount|totvalue" maxratings="yes|no" meanrat="yes|no" ratcount="yes|no" totvalue="no|yes" linktype="none|owneralbums|ownerphotos|upldrphotos" fontsize="nn" lineheight="nn" height="nn"][/wppa]
    Note: For backward compatibility: the default for displaying the total value is no (totvalue="no") as opposed to the other display options.
  • Exif arrays are now stored as arrays as opposed to multiple items with the same tag id. This enables interpretation and formatting of array value tags.
  • Improved display of help text in settings and photo of the day settings admin pages.
  • Removed obsolete browser specific css.
  • Improved layout and behaviour of frontend upload dialog.
    • The display on wide areas (upload box from upload shortcode, album cover and thumbnail area) is now a table.
    • On iPhone and iPad, when Table II-H15 (Camera connect) is ticked, there will be two buttons, one for file select and one for upload directly from camera.
    • Photo name and description can be set to mandatory input (See Table II-H7 and Table II-H9).
