AWSOM Pixgallery updated to 4.6.1

Hi everyone,
AWSOM Pixgallery has been updated to version 4.6.1. and is available for download from the Pixgallery product page. This version changes the behavior of the “remove text under thumbnails” setting to display the names of folders, but not show names under the images. (this was a big requested change). It also makes a change so that showing the breadcrumb is the default setting in Pixgallery options (this was mistakenly set the opposite way in the previous release).

AWSOM Pixgallery 2.6.0 released

Hi Everyone,
AWSOM Pixgallery 2.6.0 has been released and is now available through the WordPress Plugin repository, through Auto-upgrade, or from the AWSOM.org website.

Some of the new features for this version is the switch to a Visual Editor compatible gallery code (don’t worry, the old code still works though), persistent and customizable front end language and CSS changes, and some other bug fixes and minor updates.

AWSOM Pixgallery Beta 2 now available

I’ve uploaded a new beta version of AWSOM Pixgallery version 4.6.0 that can be downloaded here. This version of the plugin adds in the new custom language capability. By editing the pixgallery_lang.php file you can change the display of all of the nav elements of the plugin. Additionally you can place a copy of this file into a new folder called custom_language so that updates to the plugin do not erase any of your changes.

I also made a small bug fix to correct an issue where the next/previous archive nav elements did not appear in the proper place, and they now follow the option for “extra nav bars” and appear at the bottom of the thumbnail gallery if this option is turned on in Pixgallery settings.

AWSOM Pixgallery 4.6.0 beta 1 now available

Hey everyone,
I have a beta version of AWSOM Pixgallery version 4.6.0 ready for download for those who like to look at things early. This version only has 2 new things in it: a fix setting that allows you to turn off post scanning of images (this will help with people who report slowdown of their index page when pixgallery is active), and also the redesigned settings page which groups things more logically.

I’m still working on the theme elements, but for those of you having the major slowdown issue this version will fix that while you wait for the next full release.

The files can be downloaded here: http://www.awsom.org/filerepository/awsom-pixgallery460beta1.zip. Just replace the files on your server with these and you should be good. Load the settings page and save the options to enable the new setting.

Seriously, Pixgallery 4.6.0 is being developed

I’m deep into the next version of AWSOM PIxgallery development, so I can let you guys know a few details on it so far.
One major fix will be the ability to turn off scanning of Posts. This will fix some reported issues where ad plugins or other image elements cause your site to load slowly with Pixgallery active.
Another major update will be for the “theme” system in Pixgallery. You’ll finally be able to dictate the displayed parts of the gallery (breadcrumb, caption, image name, etc.) as well as alter the language of the interface.
So yes, it’s on the way finally. I might post a few betas along the way. Details will be coming soon.
