Moving into the winter season, I’m getting back into coding more and as such have just pushed out updates to all 3 WordPress Plugins here on the site. Most of the updates are framework changes and user administration. MediaView however has gotten quite a few updates to the front-end as well; to make it more responsive and faster. I plan to try to keep up better this winter season with better responsiveness to emails and bug fixes as well as regular updates, so keep your suggestions incoming.
After quite a long break and a bit of work I’ve finally gotten around to updating the plugin. While I’m sure I’ve missed some bugs and forgotten to do some things, overall the new version contains a lot of changes. The biggest two changes are an updated admin area with more user friendly options and and new “panel” view for galleries. As always keep your suggestions incoming!
After being gone for such a long time working on other side projects, I finally have a little time to get back to a few updates to the site. Currently in the works is an update to the uTubevideo Gallery plugin to correct issues such as Youtube Playlist support being broken. I anticipate an update being out before the end of the month.
After much delay the new release of uTubeVideo Gallery is finally ready for release. Besides many adjustments to the UI, this new version also adds support for Vimeo videos and playlists that many have been asking about. Vimeo videos can co-exist right alongside your YouTube videos. There are also a multitude of bug fixes, tweaks and other random oddities that have been fixed in this release.
After much work and time I have been able to release my newest plugin, and last new plugin for awhile, most likely; MediaView. To learn more about this plugin visit the it’s plugin page. I hope everyone finds this plugin useful and helpful for their websites. As always feedback is welcomed and I’ll try to get back with you as soon as my schedule will allow.
For those who are still having issues with adding videos, I hope to have a fallback implemented in the next few days, …here’s hoping. The current fallback method I implemented doesn’t quite work due to a mishap on my part. I will also include a fallback for those who are having trouble with the fancy permalinks not working.
For now those who have trouble with permalinks to albums giving a 404 error check the options page in uTubeVideo Gallery and if it does not have a green “Ok” for the permalink status make sure permalinks are turned on for your site, and then de-activate and re-activate the plugin. This should make it change to “Ok”.
Well after lots of delays, version 1.5 of uTubeVideo Gallery has arrived, with quite a few new features. Among these features is a workaround for those who have had trouble with video thumbnails not loading.
Other features that have been added include more customization for Fancybox as well as the ability to add playlists from Youtube to an album, instead of just individual videos. Permalinks has also been set up for any gallery that resides on a page, sorry posts don’t get this special treatment quite yet. For posts the original URL link for albums still applies. Then of course there’s the many bug fixes and a patch to allow the included version of Fancybox to be used with at least up to jQuery version 1.10.
Finally for those who haven’t noticed yet I have set up a mailing list that you can sign up for and get all these updates sent directly to you automatically. Until next time, I hope everyone enjoys this update and thanks to all for your support.
It’s been a while since I released an update to uTubeVideo Gallery. Currently I’m working on slight alterations to the front-end of the plugin, as well as the ability to add playlists to an album and fancy permalinks that are more SEO friendly. I don’t know when I’ll be able to release the update, but hopefully sometime in the near future. Until then, thank you all for your support!
I’m aware of some problems a few people have been having with the plugin. I’m currently working on figuring out the issue and a method of resolving it. Currently it seems like an image editor problem, in which everything works, except the images are not being saved so the thumbnails therefore do not show. If anyone else has this problem or some other issue, please comment below so I can get these issues fixed, hopefully.
After some time the uTubeVideo Gallery plugin has been updated with a few new features. One feature that was requested was the ability to skip past video albums and just display videos which is now part of the plugin. I’ve also added the ability to set the starting resolution of videos and to change the color of the players progress bar; either the traditional red or new white.
And of course a major security upgrade has been worked in as well and the occasional bug fixes as they reared their ugly heads. I appreciate the support of everyone for this plugin and will continue to try to work in new features and ideas as time allows. Stay tuned for more future updates!
