Image Widget
[resolved] New WordPress 3.5 (40 posts)

    Was wondering if there's an ETA for when the plugin will be made compatible with wp 3.5. Although it works with 3.5, it uses the old media uploader. Are there plans to move to the new media uploader? Understand that 3.5 came out just yesterday, but love the plugin and hoping it will be updated for 3.5.

    I completely second that notion. I should never have updated :(

    Thanks for the positive words about the plugin!

    Since the WP 3.5 image update is supposedly reverse compatible, and none of our paying clients offered to pay for the upgrade, and no one has offered any fixes from the community, this has been relatively low on our priority list.

    That said, I seem to be getting a number of bug reports that may or may not be actual conflicts with this upgrade. I'm eager to get them fixed but as yet no one has offerend any information to help me isolate the bugs and I can't reproduce them myself.

    Any help is appreciated. Otherwise, there's not really an ETA, just a casual effort to poke at this in my spare time.

    My company is interested in paying for the upgrade. How can I contact you to discuss a quote?

    Have played around with this some more and the basic problem I'm having is getting the image uploader to allow animated gif files to work in the sidebar. used to work easily. A serious problem for our site. Image Widget can import the gif but once the gif is saved, it stops being animated and only the first picture shows

    Great news! We've got a beta of a 3.5+ compatible version of the widget. We need some qa testing. If you're up for it, please install the latest development version of the image widget on your development site and try it out.

    DO NOT INSTALL THIS ON YOUR PUBLIC SITE!

    http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/image-widget.zip

    Things that we are particularly concerned with testing include:
    * Making sure that previously installed images don't change.
    * Making sure that you can edit and update existing images as well as add new ones.

    Thanks for the feedback in advance!

    @dudekpj, re the funding of this upgrade, we're already $3500 into this upgrade and are doing it without any sponsors. If your company wants to pitch in, we'd be delighted, but obviously most of the work is now already done.

    As it happens, we get very very few donations. Probably something on the order of $100 per year. But we do have a donation link set up all the same :)

    In any case, thanks for the support!

    FYI, no one has submitted any bug reports (aside from @webaware's comment about SSL filters). For all those folks who have been commenting about wanting this upgraded... it would be very helpful if you could help with testing.

    Everything looks good to me while testing. The only thing I noticed was that the image attributes are no longer updated in the widget after an update. Although, when you first upload the image, the attributes populate the widget fields appropriately. For instance, the image title fills in the widget image title when the image is first uploaded, but any updates to the image after that keep the original title.

    Found a small typo too, in image-widget.php, there's text that says "Select and Image". Needs changed to "Select an Image"

    Thanks @dudekpj!

    The fact that all the fields don't update is actually a feature. I've heard a lot of frustration around the fields always updating so we changed the js to only update the fields if they are empty.

    I've updated the typo. Great catch!!!

    Thanks for all the work on the plugin, other than those couple of issues, it's working great!

    @alfredo49, honestly, we're just holding out for a few more people to test. So far, @ dudekpj is the only person who has responded to our request for testers. If we release this with bugs we'll be inundated with urgent messages. We'd rather be slow to release and release something solid.

    Have you tested the new version?

    Hi,

    I just downloaded the beta and will test as much as I can, we use this plugin a lot and we want to move to 3.5 ASAP, so I'll report any bugs I run into.

    Cheers.

    Update:

    So far noticed the following bugs:
    - In size, only Custom and Full Size work. The Thumbnail, Medium and Large items appear to do nothing.
    - Changing the alignment dropdown reports this error in the console:
    Uncaught TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method 'changeImgAlign'. Seems to actually work correctly however.

    Also the following nitpicks:
    - When inserting a large image, the preview is far too large and makes the widget huge. It crops the width so it fits in the widget. Some sort of max height when it crops vertically would be nice.
    - If 'Upload' could change to 'Change' or something when there's already an image that would be great.
    - Come to think of it, 'Upload' doesn't seem appropriate, since you can pick already uploaded images. 'Insert', 'Pick' or 'Add' would be more accurate in my opinion.

    One feature request:
    - Would be great if the Link field had the option to pick from a dropdown of existing pages. I don't trust our clients to know how to use the link field properly when linking to their own site. Would also make going off the staging domain easier.

    This is all with no other plugins and running Twenty Twelve. Will activate rest of our plugins and report back.

    Also, I'm very happy with the change to fields not changing with a new image.

    No problem, I edited my feedback into my previous post. Just posting this in case you've got a notification set up and don't catch the edit.

    Cheers.

    Update: Doesn't appear to be any issues with our other plugins/theme. So it's just those issues I mentioned above.

    @JakePT, this is very helpful! Thanks!

    Curious about the medium / thumb issue. It was working fine for us. Are you sure that thumb and medium images aren't defined as the same size as each other in your media settings? When you save the image widget and view on the front end, are you sure that the actual images being called aren't different? Is it possible that the theme is displaying them the same even though they are actually different sizes?

    Love the nit picks. We'll definitely be adding those updates.

    The link url one is a great idea but might wait until a future release since it's not essential that it happen in this particular update.

    Thanks,

    My media settings are the defaults, thumb 150, medium 300 etc.

    I'll go through my actions and their results:
    - Choose 3200 x 2000 image, default size is Full Size. Original file being used on front end.
    - Change size to Thumbnail, press save. Preview does not change. No errors in console. Original file being used on front end.
    - Change size to Medium, press save. Exact same situation as Thumbnail.
    - Change size to Large, press save. Exact same situation as Thumbnail.
    - Change size to Custom, enter 320 x 200, press save. Preview changes to match. Original full-size file being used on front-end, size reduced by inline css.
    - Refreshed widgets page.
    - Change size to Thumbnail. Preview unchanged, original file being used on front end with size reduced to previous custom setting (320 x 200) with inline CSS.
    - Repeat whole process but with image uploaded for first time with Image Widget, no difference.

    I took a look at the uploads folder to make sure all the appropriate versions have been generated by WP in the first place and they have been.
