[resolved] Upgraded, now everything is different (3 posts)

    Hi, i just upgraded to the latest version of wppa now instead of all my gallery images lining up with the image on the left, followed by the discription beside it have now changed to a grid style that i do not like at all, I cannot see why or where this has been changed and how to put it back to how it was.

    This also leads to another bug, that every time i have installed updates everything goes stray and it takes me time to figure out how to change it back to what was there before hand, as my galleries are getting larger and more complex this is becoming increasingly frustrating, if your able to keep my settings intact and install the updates that would be fantastic

    Regards Brendan

    Finally figured it out after 4hrs of nearly smashing my PC screen... The album covers have changed so you have column's for different sized screens. I changed it so that its impossibly large before you get multiple columns thus making it a grid style setup.

    Possibly in the next revision this could be a radio button to select if you want it List or Grid style if you wanted grid style this could be then set so that you had a cirtain amount of coloumns per page.

    Regards Brendan.

    Sometimes people want more functionality, like the 2 or 3 columns of covers.

    I always document all the changes, and always take care that one can keep the layout one is used to, except sometimes for nasty bugs, or incompatibilities with IE that sometimes requires unwanted compromises.

    If i make sure your layout defaults to not seeing the new features, they would be overlooked by many users.

    My advice is: if you see things change after an update: read the changelog and if you can't find anything there, drop me a mail or open a forum topic.

    If you read the changelog after upgrading, this time you would have read (among other):

    * 008: You can display covers in 2 or 3 columns if the display area is wider than given numbers of pixels.

    you would have understood this new behaviour and you would have understood there would be a 'given number of pixels' somewhere, well: in the Settings screen.

    If you do not want me to implement feature requests and/or other enhancements, you should manually change the version number of the plugin (in the header of wppa.php) to 99.99.99.
    This will stop you from messages that there is an update available.

    At the same time, i will continue development as long as i am asked for and i am able to do so.
