Post subject:  Planned features for 1.6


I already have a nice list for the next release. Here I have listed the main topics:

TWG Admin:
- New enhanced menu
- Simple view in TWGXplorer - first view ist too much for many users
- Wizards when entering TWG Admin

- Upload from frontend
- Melting of TWG Admin and TWG - login of TWG Admin is used in the frontend to use some of the features (like the Upload from frontend).
- Tags (enter + search)
- forward backward functionality in the popup
- Album tree for quick navigation to different folders!

TWG Flash Uploader:
- Deletion of files
- Browsing in the left view
- Creation of folders
- Deletion of folders

Some great ideas for hte new version. How do you intend to implement the Tags as I am uploading lots of photos at the moment and wondered if I could added tags now in a way that they will be read later when you release the upgrade?

For the tags :
Using keyword in exif can be a god idea i think
At least for guys like me who are using them

I'm not using search func, maybe using searching stats can be usefull too

An idea too :
Referencing pic on google in a way i dont know.
Nothing are referenced there even in random pic or thumnbail or big pic

Another idea :
Making a referer list in admin section to know where from are comming users

I do get quite some hits form google - actually. The header it TWG even tells robots to go through the sites.

I know that search friendly urls would be better but I don't have any experience with that yet - I have to play around with this topic first.

and referer list - a stats server is running on almost every webhost ;).

I've nothing because every pics are referenced on php file not jpg.
But it's à very good thing for security.
Maybe having a direct jpg link on each thumnails only can be good
I dont know, but i need? to be referenced in image search of yahoo google and other

you have a direct link to every thumb - check the locations of your thumbs - they are only created the first time - later they are taken from the cache.

sorry work got the better of me :(

Regarding Tags, I was thinking you could just add it to the exisiting XML file

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <beschreibung>
- <bild>
<tags>October, 2006, low-light, noflash</tags>
<wert />

How to tag is a different problem and you could use your upload and admin interface to add tags in bulk.

I just read that Vista is going to use XMP metadata, so it would be cool if you upload program read this info and added the tags automatically. You can test this now using PIXVUE that enables you to add tags from Windows explorer.

If I could upload directly from Picasa with tags to TWG that would also be very useful but I know its a little outside the scope of TWG!! :D

store is not the problem - will be xml - (an extra one actually because otherwise I have a problem with compatibility and update ...).

Main problem is the sources of the tags - entering them online ist one issure - but I want to support tags in images as well.

If you like you can make a small list which kind of "embedded" tags are most common and which php libraries are available to read it :)

Post subject:  XMP for PHP

For reading and writing with PHP you can use

I would start with Keywords - like tags in Flickr. You could also read Author, Description, Categories etc but then it gets complicated and really all this can be embedded in the Keywords field.

see MS article for Vista ... 02780.aspx

This what Flickr imports
PixVue can be used to add or edit IPTC/XMP metadata in pictures before uploading them to Flickr. Flickr will import description (tab 1), keywords (tab 2) and title (tab 4).

Hope this helps.
My normal workflow is to use Pixvue to bulk tag my photos from Explorer, then load them into Picasa, edit and resize, then export to ftp to be uploaded to TWG.

PS Which template do I edit to get a photo border like this in TWG ... r=2&camID=

PPS Is the lightbox still for registered users only?

thanks, I'll take a look at it when I come to tags - Still some todo's on my list until I get there :).

such a border can be done in the style.css.
I had something like that already in twg - but I removed it because it looks really bad on not white backgrounds :).

It's still in the css. look at line 92 ff.
uncomment the next 2 styles. then you get a different border already - then simply adopt this style.

About lightbox - yes. I have to have some small bonus features because before I didn't even had enough donation's to cover my servers (which is quite cheap actually - Thanks to Marco) - I spend 2-3 hours every day for the gallery and now I can buy my girl friend at least some flowers once in a while.
