Contribute to Demo

Hello Piwigo community!

We're officially starting today a new project for the Piwigo demo.

What is it all about?

Photos in the Piwigo demo are coming from Piwigo users all over the world. The idea is to have high quality and fresh content in the demo and give credits to Piwigo community for this contribution.

In the demo, on the page of the photo, you will see a "contributed by" info with a link to the contributor website. This link will provide visibility to your Piwigo from humans and search engines as well.

http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=163105&filename=contributed-by.jpg

Once duplicated in the demo, you give permission to the Piwigo demo for displaying your photo. As a contributor, you keep the ownership of your photos. At any time, you can remove your photo with a single and immediate action.

We hope you'll love the idea and decide to become a contributor yourself. The Piwigo project needs you to create the most appealing demo. A nice demo will attract more users. More users means more improvements to make Piwigo even more awesome!

How to contribute?

Install [extension by plg] Contribute to Demo on your Piwigo (version 2.7 or newer)

Find a nice photo in your Piwigo and edit it. You can edit any photo either from the gallery or from the batch manager. On the edition page, click on the "contribute to demo" link. Your photo will be submitted to the Piwigo demo, pending for validation (or reject).

http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=163105&filename=contribute-link.png

The administrators of the demo manage a list of pending photos. You'll be notified by mail when your photo is validated.

Quite easy! Let's start!

We need some big (in pixels) photos in the demo to illustrate the "multiple size" feature. That is one of the main problem with the old photos in the demo. They were added before Piwigo 2.4, when big photos were not as nicely handled by Piwigo as they are today.

Re: Contribute to Demo

Could you explain a bit about the plugin needed to be installed? Can you safely remove or deactivate it after submitting? What does the plugin do, only send the photo/picture? Sorry to ask, though I think a great idea to have some example photos in the demo ;-)

The [extension by plg] Contribute to Demo adds a link "contribute to demo" on the edition page of each photo. When you contribute, your Piwigo sends the photo + extra info like your URL, the title of your gallery, your email address (for notification). Piwigo Demo sends back a unique key, which must be kept secret. This key will let you remove your photo from the demo at any time, among other things. The key is the link between your Piwigo and the demo.

I don't recommend to deactivate the plugin after submitting, and certainly not to "remove" it (or you will lose the key).

In a next version, I will add the list of the photo you submitted and their current state in the demo.

Right. Either 2000 pixel high OR 2000 pixels wide.

Thanks for the quick explanation, just one more question regarding:

What if you move your website of things get broken? Or just reinstalls the plugin? And how can you losse the key when it's send by email? Because you mention:

Re: Contribute to Demo

If you move the website (change URL) but keep the database, you won't lose your secret keys.

If you reinstall the plugin, you will lose the secret keys. To remove your photos from the demo, you will have to contact us.

I don't remember that the secret key is sent by email.

Re: Contribute to Demo

Hi,

I just noticed what could be a small "confidentiality issue" with the plugin: it sends the full-resolution image to the demo, even if the site provides only low-res images.

I'm not personally impacted as I always publish the full-resolution of my pictures, some people may (typically pro photographers that would be happy to share low-res images in exchange for a link to their website, but usually do not share the full-res for free).

I've noticed it on:

http://piwigo.org/demo/picture.php?/764/category/113

which links to the original website:

http://fmorin.piwigo.com/picture?/1366/ … coin_macro

I think it would be nice to make it clear for contributors, e.g. replace the text "contribute to demo" with "contribute full-resolution image to demo", or add a confirmation pop-up. Or at least mention it in the documentation of the plugin (admin.php?page=plugin-contribute_to_demo).

Re: Contribute to Demo

OK, I'll see how I can make obvious that the original size will be submitted to demo.

How did you find the URL of the photo in the contributor website? For now, I have chosen to give the link to the contributor Piwigo website and not to the photo page.

I just opened the "macro" album and found it.  Indeed I had to find it from the root album.
