Client side image resize

Thanks to the work of the Moxiecode & WordPress team, I’m able to add the plupload feature into the next major release of NextGEN Gallery. Plupload is a tool which allows you to upload files using HTML5, Silverlight or Flash and enable a client side resize feature. Great framework !

A long long time I’m looking for such a great solution (just find some bad java based solution), I will publish this new feature along with the release of WordPress 3.3

Back from Chicago

Chicago

Back from my trip, had a really great 4th of July in Chicago. In the meantime WordPress 3.2 went out and I need to fix a problem with the pagination in the admin section. The new release version 1.8.2 is now ready for download.

Rewrite rules…

It’s a real nightmare to release a new version of NextGEN Gallery. One the one hand new features , on the other hand every upgrade should run smooth… If you a one-man-show this could causes a real headache. I’m really did my best for each and every upgrade, but it’s impossible for an installation base of 50.000 – 100.000 blogs. With Version 1.8.0 I modify the permalink structure of the gallery links, which is for the future more SEO friendly (I really hate SEO optimisation)… but I missed to test some custom structures (i.e. /%postname%/ or /%category%/%postname%/ ). So the new feature will break the plugin for this structures. Sorry, for any trouble this caused. I’m looking into this and hope to fix it in a couple of weeks…

In the meantime you have three options :

a) Stay on Version 1.7.3, which should be fine (download here)
b) Change your permalink structure ( Could be a SEO issue )
c) Deactivate just the Gallery permalinks (See gallery settings)

Update : Should be fix with Version 1.8.3

NextGEN Gallery V1.8.0 released

I’m happy to release the next version oy NextGEN Gallery. There are some improvements for the backend menu and a rework of the permalink structure. Please noticed the new setting in the option menu, where you can change the main slug for the permalinks.

More over I’ve added the support for XML Sitemaps for images. You just need to install the great plugin from Yoast : WordPress SEO

I did my best to test the plugin, please report (as always) any problems at the forums. Thanks !
