Photonic Gallery for Flickr, Picasa, SmugMug, 500px, Zenfolio and Instagram

Galleries on steroids! A stylish plugin for galleries of your public and private WP, Flickr, Picasa, SmugMug, 500px, Zenfolio & Instagram photos.

If I disable the plugin what happens to the galleries?

Obviously, your galleries will not show. However, since you are using the native gallery shortcode, you will not see any empty shortcode tags on your site.

What about other photo-sharing platforms?

Suggestions are welcome for other photo-sharing platforms. In addition there will be support provided for the generic Media RSS format, which can facilitate integration with platforms such as ZenPhoto.

What about other JS libraries?

Currently Fancybox, Colorbox and PrettyPhoto are supported. Both lighter and heavier alternatives are being considered. If you have specific suggestions please feel free to contact the plugin author.

Note that there have been slight modifications to both the above scripts to make them interact with JQuery tooltips.

Are there any known issues?

Yes, there are a couple dealing with tooltips. The plugin optionally uses the JQuery Tooltip script to show image tooltips. The drawback is that for IE7 the native HTML tooltip and the custom tooltip are shown simultaneously. This is a bug with the thumbnail script.

In addition, if you access a password-protected album in SmugMug in Photonic, you don't get the desired results.

Are translations supported?

Yes, but only for the plugin front-end. The admin panel is not translated at this point. Also note that any strings included in the third-party JS scripts are not translated.
