Re: Feature Requests

I have 93 galleries and am creating more.  I do a lot of scrolling back up to the save button when I am creating a new Juicebox Galley.  Is there a keyboard shortcut for Save and for +New Page?

Is there a keyboard shortcut for Save and for +New Page?

There are currently no keyboard shortcuts for Showkase interface buttons but thank you for posting your suggestion here where it will be seen by the developers.

Topic: Masonry layout on gallery index page

Id love to see this in a future version of Showkase, or has anyone tried to get something like this working in a current version?
Thanks,

Re: Feature Requests

With most DSLR's, smart phones and drones being capable of video, support for video would probably be a very well received feature to build into Showkase and its gallery viewers.

Re: Feature Requests

Hi,

Showkase is stunning, the user interface is very clear and simple and perfect to create a photo website in a few clicks. Bravo!

Just some suggestions to make it even more perfect (if possible...)

It would be useful to have the ability to automatically import the images in the gallery. I use Photo Mechanic to upload my pictures to the website and for now, I need to login to the Showkase content manager and manually rebuild the gallery, and add the captions.

Furthermore, it seems that when you delete pictures in a gallery, the thumbnails remain in their folder...

I would like to have an option to apply the {iptctitle} and {iptcdescription} variables by default, as well.

Regards

I'm glad you're getting on well with Showkase! Many thanks for the suggestions.

Just in case you're interested to know, it is certainly possible for a Juicebox gallery to dynamically display all images from a designated directory on a web server and to extract IPTC data for use as the image titles and caption (although, as you are aware, this is not how Showkase works). Take a look at this forum thread which contains a PHP script which does just that. It may not be easy to integrate this manually into Showkase (you'd probably need to embed the gallery manually into a 'Basic' page) and such a gallery would not be able to be managed within the Showkase interface. I just thought I'd mention it as it is related to your suggestion.

This looks like a bug. I've notified the developers. Thank you for reporting it.

Re: Feature Requests

Further to the bug that you reported (regarding thumbnails not being deleted when a gallery image is removed), I've heard back from the developers who have formulated a fix which will be included in the next version of Showkase.

In the meantime, if you would like to implement the fix yourself, just edit your Showkase site's 'admin/classes/gallery.php' file in a plain text editor and change line 632 from:

$thumbName =    basename($filePath,'.'.$info['extension']).'.jpg';

... to:

$thumbName = Helpers::changeFileExtension(basename($filePath), 'jpg', array('jpeg', 'JPG', 'JPEG'));

You can also delete line 631:

$info = pathinfo($filePath);

... as it is no longer required.

Please note that the the line numbers above refer to the current version of Showkase (v1.7.1).

Thanks, once again, for reporting this issue.

Re: Feature Requests

Hi,

I just read your post (I had not set my account to automatically subscribe to the topics...).

Thank you for the fix. I will try to implement it on my website.

Happy new year to all the team.

You're welcome! Happy New Year to you, too!
Hopefully you'll have no trouble implementing the fix on your own website.
As I mentioned, it will be included in the next version of Showkase (although, unfortunately, I do not know when it will be released).

Re: Feature Requests

Please consider adding comments and photo ratings (1-5 stars).

I use Showkase for my higher end work, but I am planning a new site for the lower end work that I had on Flickr.  Now that Flickr has been bought from Yahoo by SmugMug, I will be closing my account there.

I want comments and ratings, so Showkase is out of the question, although it is my preferred choice for photo  hosting software.  Piwigo, Zenphoto, and Coppermine all have comments and ratings. 

Showkase is great as is and I assume this would be a major undertaking, but I just thought I'd share my thoughts on this since it was a factor in my deciding to use a different CMS.
