I’ve added a few new features to the upcoming AWSOM PixGallery 4.7.0 release:
1) Share This integration. If you are using the “Share This” plugin for WordPress you can now switch on this option to have your images and galleries have their own unique Share This Link generated. If you aren’t using that plugin, this option simply presents a “permalink” link which the user can easily cut and paste themselves (yes, this basically is the same as the URL bar, but for people who use Chrome or otherwise don’t like to operate using that area it makes it easier for them to understand what to link to….)
2) “Universal Image Text”. This option, editable from the “PixGallery Image Captions” admin page, allow you to set text that will automatically be displayed for all of your images when they are viewed individually. So copyright statements or other text can be set here and you don’t need to bother adding a specific caption to each image to add this text.
These features are now running on AWSOM.org, so check out the PixGallery page to look at the example galleries to see these and the other new features in action.
I’m pretty near to saying “code freeze” on this version of PixGallery, but I might slip one or two small things in at the last minute. Even so, I’m hoping to get this version out the door by the end of next week.
Share integration is a great idea! I should have thought of that..
Is SEO friendly permalinks possible? They are very important for getting listed on Search engines as they make it easier for crawlers to find/list your pages and they have keywords in them which help you get listed better…
Without permalinks your previous SEO updates like page titles is practically useless..
I’ll take a look at that, but that’s a very difficult area to wade into based on how WordPress interprets permalinks.
