6.6.06

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a default covertype layout issue on static (non-responsive) display.
  • On some systems the rating system did not work. Fixed.

New Features

  • Table IV-A9.2: Track clickcounts. Counts the clicks on single images and slideshow images when there is a link url. Totals per album show up on the album admin page.
  • Table VI-B2: Thumbnail linktype: added option: 'the thumbnails album in a slideshow'. Shows the slideshow of the album where the thumbnail belongs. Starting at the pointed image. This always shows the physical album where the thumbnail belongs to as a slideshow, even when the collection of thumbnails is the content of a virtual album; as opposed to 'the fullsize photo in a slidshow' (the default) that always shows the slideshow of the selection where the thumbnail belongs to.

6.6.05

New Features

  • Table IV-E11: Rating display type can now be set to 'Likes'. Works on thumbnails (II-D4), slideshow (II-B7) and lightbox (II-G21).
  • Table IX-F8.2 and IX-F8.3 The color of textual watermarks can now be set.
  • Table VI-A6: LasTen widget linktype: added option: 'the thumbnails album in a slideshow'. Shows the slideshow of the album where the thumbnail belongs. Starting at the pointed image.

Bug Fixes

Recommended before moving the site, especially when you use a windows pc to copy the photofiles. Window does not accept two files with the same name with different case in file extension. It simply overwrites the files.
