IP.Gallery 3.1.0 now in testing

We are pleased to announce that IP.Gallery 3.1.0 is now in the beta testing stage, and has been installed on this board for public testing! This update brings many refinements, performance optimizations, and new features, including:

Friendly URLs
IP.Gallery now makes full use of the IP.Board FURL system. Categories, albums, images and more now have the friendly URL structure you're familiar with.

Image notes
Image owners are now able to add notes to sections of their images, positioning and resizing them to suit. Other members will be able to see the notes when hovering over the image. (An example)

Image rotation
Images can now be rotated in 90

When creating an album, users can now choose to restrict viewing to only those users who are on their friends list.


Rikki, I've never had the inclination to kiss a guy, but you are getting cute.

Friends-only albums

Loving the new look & features. Image notes is awesome and I like the way you implemented them. Is there a way to denote somewhere on the image that it has notes without having to hover over it? Something small and inconspicuous so that you don't have to know you have to hover over it to even know there are notes? Also, is it possible for other members besides the owner to add notes to an image? Perhaps an album setting? ... Maybe even allow members to 'link' to their note in their comments (scrolls the page to the top and highlights the particular note in the image)?

Awesome work guys. Huge leaps and bounds over the old version already thumbsup.png

[edit] Just saw the new slideshow. Very nice :D

If an image has notes, it'll say so under the image info on the right hand side, and on the category listing screen there's a count in the image info.

I'd like to expand the notes feature in future, but right now only the image owner can modify notes (well, moderators too, but mainly so they can handle problematic ones). In future it'd be nice to perhaps allow friends to add notes too perhaps. I'd also like to add the ability to tag a forum member, rather than just add text. Things for the future though ;)

Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information. [#1078] There are no categories that you have permission to view

I don´t know... that looks a bit boring... <_<

Whoever designed the new slideshow should get a raise.


Haha, feel free to say that more :D

Thanks for the great feedback, Josh and I appreciate it! We already have more ideas for the next update, but we hope this update makes people happy :)

Looks great, can't wait to get this running on my forum!

Some comments:

1) When displaying a list of galleries, would be nice to see a count of how many images are in the gallery:

http://community.invisionpower.com/gallery/category/2-members-gallery/

Somewhere below the image thumb would be nice.

2) The new slideshow looks nice. Would it be possible to use the left and right arrows to move through the images?

3) I'm seeing a blue selection box when I click on any of the navigation buttons (previous image, play, next image). When the mouse button is held down over one of these buttons, the box turns red. Also seeing this when clicking the "X" button in the upper-right corner. Using Firefox 3.5.5.

4) When viewing an image, can you link the member's photo thumbnail to their profile?

5) Can you make it so that clicking the image itself pops up the full-size version of the image (the same as clicking the magnifying glass icon)? I would also move that icon below the image, as it detracts a bit from the image below it.

6) If an image is being scaled, it would be nice to see at what percentage the image is being displayed at, similar to how image scaling works in the main forum.

Thanks!

Well done guys, fantastic.

Yes tags would be good and also some kind of Flickr integration would be nice, so you could have virtual albums that display images on Flickr but from within the Invision Gallery.

Hopefully the FURL will make it much easier to use in conjunction with IPB3.0's skin mapping. Yesterday I mapped a specific skin to a specific set of all sub-categories and albums within my gallery, it took about 25-30 entries to do it, but still when you click on an image it uses the default/members choice of skin. Now with FURl in the gallery, hopefully I can my that skin to all urls containing a certain word and it will use that skin on everything that matches including the image views and not just all the albums and category links I manually listed.

Regarding number 5, that's how it was before, but unfortunately we had to remove it in order to add the notes functionality. Having two 'click' triggers on the image is confusing both for the user, and the browser, so we decided it'd be best if there's an explicit button for enlarging the image.

Looking great! Though that tagging system is still missing here.
Nice job so far! :thumbsup:


The tagging system was considered, but we're going to wait and include tagging in the core instead, so all applications can make use of it. It'll be in a future update :)
