I hve already started with TWG 1.8.5 and one of the main features is that folder.txt and foldername.txt can be edited in the front end.
I have implemented this already and the reason why this is available is that new translations are needed as well.
Additionally some small fixes are included.
So if you can help with the translation or want to use this new feature you can already use 1.8.5.
This is what is new/fixed:
New: Frontend edit of folder.txt and foldername.txt - the "caption" menu link has changed to "Edit".
New: SEO optimizations: noindex, nofollow are now at all rotation links and the topx link because there it is not needed at all!
New: SEO optimizations: Unique meta titles and descriptions are generated.
New: Support of canonical URLs. Only twg_album and twg_image are the parameters that identifies a detail page of TWG. On all pages that have additional parameters a canonical url is added in the header so that google does not treat them as duplicate content anymore. See: http://www.google.com/support/webmaster ... wer=139066
New: If you set $enable_comments_only_registered then only backend useres or the user itself can delete a comment. before users that could edit comments can delete. Now fronend access is only needed.
New: TFU was updated to 2.14.3. Create of files is now supported!
New: $image_factor - this is the factor of the images used for the iframes of the slideshow. If you have smaller images you can redurce this value and still have the full display. This should be used if you want to integrate TWG into a very small we page.
New: new style: twg_menu_border - the padding to the images are set there. $hide_overview_image_border can be used to turn the border off.
New: You can now use a private.png in the pictures folder. If you have protected the whole gallery then this image is shown over the whole gallery but below the login window. So you can protect your gallery with a nice image.
New: Support for mms streams. Works like the http sreams. Simply use mms:// instead http://
New: A log is now written if someone logs into a passowrd protected gallery in the normal password mode.
New: Updated jquery from 1.4.1 to 1.6.1 - and it is now always available under $j. So you can use it anytime for your own extensions.
New: Internal setting in config_internal.php : $iptc_encoding - if you have utf-8 iptc tags you can use $iptc_encoding = 'utf-8'; here. Otherwise all entries are utf-8 encoded.
New: Internal setting in config_internal.php : $print_memory_usage - shows the memory when a image is created. before this was competely internal but now it can also be used to look for bootlenecks during image generation!
Fix: Swipe is now only available on the fullscreen because otherwise it disables also the moving inside the gallery on the pages before.
Fix: The icon settings for mobile mode where overwritten by local configs. Now this settings are set is after reading this files.
Fix: $video_player == "AUTO" was not working for FLV's if $video_flash_site was set. Now this should work with both combinations.
Fix: On the thumbnail page the lighbox was not working properly on FLV folders because the base dir was calculated differently.
Fix: Small encoding fix for flash videos and integrated swfs
Fix: BCC code was not linking to the image anymore. Because of a refactorying this was broken. Now it works again.
Fix: checkXSS was improved. A / after index.php directly is already an error!
Fix: php include and skip thumbnails was not working because the install_dir had to be added earlier. Not it is added at the right time.
Fix: folder2.png was not in the exclude list for pngs which are not shown in a folder.
Fix: <br> in the title and comments are not directly allowed anymore. You can now simply use returns in the input fields.
Fix: $video_flv_stretching for FLVs was only used for the 1st played image and not anymore when the video was exchanged automatically. Now the variable is used there as well.
Fix: dynamic backround and a global private.txt cause that the login box was shown after the 2nd request but not the first. Now it is shown directly!
Fix: hidden files where not processed propery by the TWGExplorer
Fix: I removed the hidden files pattern because it does not match with the TFU hidden file settings. Now hidden files in TWGExploter and TFU re the same: files starting with . In TFU you have more filter possibilities. Check the tfu_config.php
Fix: I fixed some small layout stuff for IE9! If you still have display problems with ie9 - please let me know.
Fix: Display of the title in the window was imporoved. For images with no caption no title was shown in the header. This leads to duplicates in search engines - now the image name is printed there.
Fix: recusive folder image does now support spaces in the dir and file names.
Fix: The search was displaying the TOPX - now the search is shown again.
Fix: The opacity is removed after a fade. IE has display errors on black.
Fix: $fix_ie_fade added. IE does not handle black properly during fading. 99% of the time this does not matter because you don't see this. But if you have black images and you see white dots you can set this to true to replace black. If you still see white dots you have to set $image_page_fade=1
