Version 1.3.7 released, adding “subgalleries”

Tuesday, October 17th, 2006

Tonight I’m releasing version 1.3.7, which adds a feature I’m calling “subgalleries”. Using subgalleries, you can include multiple galleries on your site, or just include a portion of your gallery in a post or page. See the next post for an example and some more information. Also see the Example Subgallery page.

Visit the Lazy-K Gallery page to download this version.

Example Post with a Subgallery

Tuesday, October 17th, 2006

This post includes what I call a “subgallery”. Basically, it’s just a subset of my full gallery, starting at a given directory. This subgallery starts in the “Animals” directory of my gallery.

Notice there’s no way to navigate higher in the gallery than the “Animals” folder. Also, I can put this subgallery in a page. Using this feature, you can effectively have multiple galleries on one site, or show just a subset of your full gallery (perhaps just the latest folder you uploaded, etc.)

To include this subgallery, I put the following tag in my post:

Version 1.3.6

Saturday, October 14th, 2006

I’ve put version 1.3.6 online. Nothing terribly exciting in this release thought I’ve squashed a few bugs. You can grab it from the Lazy-K Gallery page.

If you’re using PHP safe

mode or some of the restrictions like open_basedir, this release should fix some problems. There were also problems with non-JPG image files. Let me know if you have any problems.

New forums again…

Friday, October 13th, 2006

Ok, unfortunately, I’m moving to a new support forum. Before I was using XDForum, which was nice in that it integrated into WordPress. Unfortunately, I had problems with posts showing up multiple times, having to fix my permalinks every time I created a new post, etc. If I had more time to spend on it, I’m sure it could have been fixed, but before more info

we get too far along I figured I’d make the switch.

My apologies to those of you who posted on the old forum, since those posts won’t transfer over. I’m going to leave the old forums up for a little while, but they’ll be disappearing before too long. Use the “Support Forums” link to the right, or follow this link:

Let me know what you think!

Version 1.3.5

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

I have a new release ready to go. For version 1.3.5, I’ve added the ability to specify what folder your slides and thumbnails reside in, in case you want to change that. The big change is the ability to create your gallery page automatically (thanks to Mike for the idea). There’s a button on the options page that can create your gallery page for you.

Visit the Lazy-K Gallery page to download the latest version. As always, let me know what you think.
