Piwigo gets a mobile theme, automatically loaded when visitors browse the gallery with a mobile device (iPhone, Android...). The theme "SmartPocket" can be switched off by the visitor if he prefers to browse your gallery with the "classic" theme.



http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=128192&filename=piwigo-2.4-batch-manager-move-photos.png

New action in the Batch Manager: you can move photos into another album. The "move" action is equivalent to actions "dissociate from all albums" + "associate to album". We have also added an option to create the destination album if it doesn't exist yet.



http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=128192&filename=piwigo-2.4-comments-sort-order.png

You can define a sort order for user comments, oldest first or latest first. In the gallery, the visitor can also switch from one option to the other with a simple click.



http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=128192&filename=piwigo-2.4-add-photos-applications.png

The "Piwigo Uploader" screen is replaced by a more general "Applications" screen including pLoader, Piwigo Mobile for iOS/Android, iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom, Shotwell, digiKam, ReGalAndroid.



http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=128192&filename=piwigo-2.4-new-administration-menubar.png

The administration menubar was redesigned to include icons and reduce lost space.



http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=128192&filename=piwigo-2.4-new-sort-orders-labels.png

We have redesigned the ergonomy to configure photos sort order: new labels, new options.




http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=128192&filename=piwigo-2.4-photo-administration-screen-redesign.png

The administration screen for each photo gets a new design : a single form on the whole page and tab to manage "center of interest" (related to crop for square thumbnail)



http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=128192&filename=piwigo-2.4-administration-album-redesign-hidden-options.png

New design on album list manager: the action links only appears when the mouse is hover.



http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=128192&filename=piwigo-2.4-administration-album-redesign-save-manual-order.png

New design on album list manager: when you have moved an album by drag and drop, a button "save manual order" appears.

New design on album list manager: the album creation form is only displayed on user demand.

New default theme "Elegant": grey colors, simpler design, less borders.



http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=128192&filename=piwigo-2.4-default-theme-elegant-album-thumbnails.jpg

New default theme "Elegant": with a simple click you can show and hide the menu.



http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=128192&filename=piwigo-2.4-default-theme-elegant-photo.jpg

New default theme "Elegant": the photo page (changes to come in next release candidates)

Re: Piwigo 2.4.0RC1

I tested the mobile view in Dolphin browser on my Sidekick 4G, Android 2.2.1, and it did great - automatically detected that I was on mobile.  I then switched to viewing it as a normal website ( http://piwigo.us/beta/24/index.php?/mos … bile=false ) and it also was viewable.

I could not zoom in mobile view by finger spread.  I could zoom in, then out, with double touch but it was a bit dicey - half the time it didn't work, since a single touch usually brought up the menu and it was hard to exactly time the double touch.

I could swipe the screen to get to the next or previous photo.

Also, once I viewed it as a normal webpage,  I couldn't get back to viewing it in mobile view until I entered http://piwigo.us/beta/24/index.php?/mos … obile=true .   

I also tested it on my Kubuntu desktop system and it was the same as my phone.

Re: Piwigo 2.4.0RC1

Although I can see and change the image size in the gallery, when I try to access 'Multiple Size' in the Admin menu to change the settings I get an 'Internal Server Error'.
This error has happened in the past when there is a problem with a Plugin or other part of the software scripting.

Is there a bug, or is it a problem on my hosting server.

Re: Piwigo 2.4.0RC1

Hi all,

I have a question about the watermark function
There are several approaches to integrate this:
.)  Overlay (selectable between thumbnail image or both)
.)  fix burn on the image
.)  or only visible when the image is downloaded

Which way did you choose?

I would be very happy if you can choose 1-2

your stefan

Basically I suggest you to see by yourself. ^^
But the new idea is to say like Lightroom "we've got the original picture and all the other pictures are generated dynamically/on need" So the original picture is never altered and the others are just more or less temporary copies. The watermark is a customizable picture of course.
