Gallery and Blogs Updated

Posted by David, 22 August 2012 · 1,759 views

The Gallery and Blog applications have both been updated. Gallery had a rather massive overhaul and as a result there are some issues with the dark skin I'm aware of (though they're just visual and don't affect usability), so if you want to check out what it should/will look like use the Light skin. Hopefully I'll fix whatever issues there are relatively quickly.

Here is a list of improvements; each bullet links to an in-depth write-up by IPB if anyone is interested.

What's New for IP.Gallery
In addition to many fixes for reported issues, the following changes have been made:
  • Redesigned Navigation
    We have redesigned the navigation and structure of Gallery to provide a more traditional navigational approach, while retaining a more social approach for those who desire it. Global albums have been changed to "categories".
  • More Administrator Control
    Administrators now have better and more fine-grained control over moderators, albums and images.
  • Miscellaneous Features and Enhancements
    pInterest integration; improved shared media image presentation; set as profile photo expanded Gallery-wide; hidden and unapproved ambiguity improvement; SEO improvements
  • Navigational Changes
    Changes to albums and ability to list members, albums or images in the special member albums category
  • More Miscellaneous Improvements
    RSS feed enhancements; notification improvements; homepage enhancements based on client feedback
What's New for IP.Blog
  • SEO and Microformat Improvements
    Improvements have been made to better optimize IP.Blog for search engines, and implement relevant microformat meta data.
  • Promotion
    Ability to auto-share to Facebook/Twitter on entry creation; better image handling for sharing to Facebook; ability to auto-follow entry on creation; reputation integration in user profiles; integration with quick navigation panel
  • Moderation and Miscellaneous Improvements
    Consistency improvements; custom block improvements; inline moderation enhancements; better category management
In addition to software improvements, I've added new categories:
  • Das GIF Haus - A place for all of the best GIFs.
  • Image Hosting - Where people who add images to their articles should host their stuff. Otherwise it will likely be lost after a short period of time because people tend to hot-link or upload it to crummy places like imageshack. Premium Members are also able to host their own stuff.
It just so happens that our licenses for these updates ran out awhile back, so I had to repurchase renewal rights to the software inorder to get these updates. Since renewal prices run about $210 a year, I'll just take this moment to say all Premium Member subscriptions go toward the site and really help me out. You can also donate any amount you want if none of the Premium Member tiers are right for you, or if you're already subscribed. I'd also like to thank Deathirst for donating $15.00 and taking over the hosting costs for August with it. :smile:




Few things I noticed and I hope I'm not the only one with these problems.
  • I can't navigate to my notification drop down menu from the home page. Not a huge problem, but it interrupts how I usually flow through the site.
  • Quotes have lost their box. Like the quote information and picture come up, but no outline and gray shaded area for the box.
Gallery looks miles better though.

I'll have a different write up on the home page later, but I'm aware of the messenger/notification issue.

Testing quotes now. EDIT: No idea what you're talking about. Try clearing your cache.
Just realized the only place I notice the problem is in the PS4 article.

Maybe it's an article thing? Not a lot of quoting going on in articles.
Deathirst is the MAN! I don't have any real income and still live with my parents. Then again, at my age, the only real alternative is being a hobo. I would donate if I could, though. The premium forums have me curious.
