Piwigo 2.9

Posted on May 2nd, 2017, by plg

Greetings everybody!

Design matters. This is what recent user testing sessions have clearly revealed. This is why this version 2.9 focuses on refreshing our design, for the administration pages. Of course we have also added a few features, improved ergonomy and made your Piwigo even faster.
Here is certainly the biggest change on 2.9: design! Dark header, footer and menubar. Less borders. Brand new administration home page, called "Dashboard", with big icons for quick access to main pages.

We've made our best to have as many extensions compatible with Piwigo 2.9 as possible. You should be able to update right now :-)

Happy update!

Happy birthday Piwigo, 15 years !

Today, 15 years ago, Piwigo 1.0.0 was released. Back then its name was still PhpWebGallery. I started this project as a personal project. Living next to my engineering school, I wanted to share photos with my parents, 500 kilometers away. Because I was using other open source software I wanted to give back to the community and published Piwigo with an open source license !

Piwigo has become a full-featured solution to manage your photo collection. First users were private users. Then came photographers. Today more and more teams and companies are using Piwigo to manage their own photo library. I'm very proud and grateful at the same time. Thank you to all contributors, developers, translators, forum supporters, extension creators!

No more talking, let's see what Marion prepared to celebrate this event :-)

Happy birthday Piwigo!

Piwigo 2.9.0RC2

Posted on April 10th, 2017, by plg

Dear "release candidate" testers,

2.9 is very near. Here is the second release candidate, and we hope the last one. As usual with "release candidates", this release is for test only, so don't install it on your live website.

1) Changes

To learn more about new features of Piwigo 2.9, you can read the previous announcement announcement for 2.9.0beta1 + announcement for 2.9.0beta2 + announcement for 2.9.0RC1

Here is the list of changes compared to Piwigo 2.9.0RC1. First the changes for users:

* new display options to show/hide icons on thumbnails and photos pages
* visits made on mobile theme will increase visit counter
* ability to show album description on all pages of the album (not just the first page)

... and then more "technical" changes:

* $conf['picture_ext'] and $conf['file_ext'] are now case-insensitive, ie "jpg" will accept *.JPG or *.Jpg files

Full list available on Github

2) Screenshots

On page [Administration > Configuration > Options > Display] you will find new checkboxes, to show or hide the size selector or admin links (edit/caddie/representative). On both thumbnails page and photo page.

3) Start to beta test

Download Piwigo 2.9.0RC2

If you can't install it but want to test it, just ask and we will happily provide a testing installation.

Please, open a new topic in the beta testing forum for each problem you may encounter.

The beta-testing continues and we still need your feedbacks :-) Beta-test installations hosted on have already been updated.

Happy beta-testing :-)
