The Advanced Metadata plugin no longer works with Piwigo 2.4 but it seems like there is some support for displaying exif data with the php extension. I have the php extension enabled, but the only exif displayed for my images is Make, Model, Date, Aperture. Is there a file I can edit to change exactly what data is displayed and/or the order?
Still would love to see the option to read exif to tags in the database. It would be nice to be able to have virtual albums and/or search by parameters such as the lens.
I did find the Metadata documentation which explained a bit about how exif data is handled. The documentation I found refers to branch 1.3 and 1.4. Is the documentation that old or is it supposed to refer to 2.3 and 2.4? In any event the information was helpful but it just confirms what I have always found, that the base functionality isn't sufficient (which is why I always loved the Advanced Metadata extension).
I'd have to do a lot of additional coding to use the base functionality. I have photos from multiple cameras and the exif data is different for all of them. As an example, my Nikon camera uses a bizarre notation for shutterspeed, with everything being a multiple of ten, like 10/600 instead of 1/60s. I'd have to put a calculation in the code for that, but since I have multiple cameras I'd have to do determine the model, and then do a different calculation for each one. I'm not a programmer and I've seen in other galleries such as Gallery2 and Gallery3, how the exif code is written, and that's definitely not something I'd want to tackle, mostly due to lack of time rather than lack of interest. Not a big deal but I hope the Advanced Metadata plugin gets updated for 2.4!

yes the english documentation has huge lack... you can the french using translation tools, but we are trying to translate the most important documentation : see [Forum, topic 19375] List of Wiki pages which need a review from native English speakers
