New section Gallery

Post by maxwell » Sat Nov 10, 2018 4:05 am

A new section has been added for members to have a personal gallery. Access to this option is limited to registered users and above for uploading images but all users may view the gallery's. There is a comment section that can be enabled by the users for their images this is also limited to registered users and above.

This extension is very detailed in functionality, access and options that can be set or controlled by the user and us. It has been in an alpha testing on a mirror site for a bit but this is the first time with multi users so be patient with any possible issues please.


The screenshots below should give you a basic outline of the functions I will update as needed.

Nice new feature, particularly for our lovely ladies. Can images in your gallery be included in a post?

The image resizing and file size limit are working well. My upload limit is 256K the image above is 1341K so the system was able to except it and make the automatic adjustments to fir.

This is very useful for those that might have trouble resizing an image to use the attach option for posting when it is too large. By using the Gallery it does the work for you.

You will also notice it ads a smaller or thumbnail size image to the post that links to the full size gallery image. This is also handy so your post is not overwhelmed with large images in with the text
