Post subject:  Planned features for TWG 1.8

Hi everyone.

Just wanted to let you know that development of TWG is still very busy.
Below you find my new ideas for TWG 1.8:

- Integration of a flash thumbnailstrip
This will be the new bonus feature for registered users ;). - DONE AND RELEASED
- Support for full lightbox if TWG is inside a frame (Lightbox should be shown on the whole page - most likely I'll use Lytebox) - DONE AND RELEASED
- I'll add the most asked settings to the administration backend
- User based galleries - DONE AND RELEASED

The new features will be a path to 1.8 - means because they are all quite seperated I'll make 1.7.3, 1.7.4 ... everytime I finish one of the new features i'll make a new release. This makes it easier to release any bugfixes if needed ;).
First feature will be the thumbnailstrip with a size of 100x100 thumbnails.

Have fun using TWG :).

Thx for all detailed list of new upcoming features!
Here I want to put some feature request :)
Here it is: TWG should retain tag+description+counter info per file/picture when user/admin edits filename or move the file into new location.
Now when you edit filename all that essential informations (tags, description, counter) are lost. The same applies to operation of moving picture/file into new folder.

you should read
howto 35. How to choose the right storage location for your xml files.

This is not the default mode because you need write access to your pictures folder.

About renaming files. Why do you rename files? Captions can be entered by the frontend.

Hmm... thank you for the tip. It generates new question:
a. if i modify the default location, to picture folder, do I lose data contained in actual xml folder?
b. what about data when I move picture between folders?

I rename picture, because I need custom order of pictures. My captions are different from filenames.

a. like the howto says - you shouldn't. But I stongly recommend a backup because you never know if maybe any server permissions make trouble.

TWG does actually check in the old xml folder first and when it finds the xml there it moves it to the new location. When the xml folder is empty all xml should be stored in the pictures directory.

b. then the data is lost. If you move with ftp TWG does not even know that this is the same file. How do you move and rename the files?

This feature would have to be added there. But this is a lot of work and right now there are many things that have much higher priority.

I’m not sure that the following things are covered already in registered licenses, but I would like to share with you about new features or bugfixes I was thinking of:-

1) Selection of photo galleries, admin can assign each of the gallery folder with multiple users (e.g. Choose A,B,C users a/c’s and then add into desired gallery folder)
2) Protected password can change by user themselves
3) Visitor have their own account with password (I preferred this item if possible instead of item2)
4) Blocking of reverse lookup address, I found the domain URL will be changed in some time and appears in web browser, means that visitor from outside internet access to my web server would fails because they never resolved a right address path. I don’t know this is only my settings issues or else, I just raise out this point anyway. It possibly are happened if perform backward or forward of pages very frequently.

Thanks for your kindly attention!

1. what do you mean? what is the goal to assign the users?
2. You might switch from simple password protection to user based galleries. The you don't enter a password to the password file but the user names. -> user based galleries.
3. Havn't you been to the administration? You an create accounts for users, assign home directories ... you even can enable self registration.
4. I don't change this - this is your server that does this. It delivers the ip instead.

And none of this is part of the registration - this stuff is all in the normal version already.

just a suggestion which i would like to see.

i think there should be an option in the admin section to change adsense publisher ID and also enable/disable function.

thanks for all your hard work

The adsense code in the frontend is only an example what you e.g. can do with overview.htm.

Post subject:  Re: Planned features for TWG 1.8

I would like to propose a feature enhancement for "top 10"

1. Allow Admin to specify lookup period for "top 10"
2. Allow Users to select "top ten" in last year, month, week

This should apply to Views, Rating, Votes and Latest comments

Another proposal to consider is to somehow allow images to be linked to a database table. Allowing admins to specify a few default fields to be completed when images are uploaded. I am thinking things like date, geo location data, Photographers name, copyright information, or even amount, model, year (or whatever an admin wishes to be associated with images relating to the website in question)

Post subject:  Re: Planned features for TWG 1.8


in the xml only the total numbers are stored.
As you mentioned a database would be the right solution here.

I have something like that on my todo list but this will be an optional feature.

About linking to a database. This is no problem right now.
See the howto about the image.txt. There you can actually use php as well to
get stuff from a database if the image name is a unique key..

Best, Michael

The idea of linking to database was to also allow for some sort of search facility to be added.

e.g. I want customers to view all images by a particular photographer, date, location, caption, number of views, date uploaded, make of camera (from exif data) etc...
