I’ve decided to change to a different software plugin to handle some of the photo upload and gallery functions of the website so you will notice a few changes and some of the older content may be gone. I think it is worth the change, this new plugin is much more polished and easier to use and allows for multiple photo uploads at on time. It also has a really nice photo viewer where you can like and comment right in the viewer.
Now there is a button that says Attach files. With this button you can upload multiple photos at once and even make them into an Album. There can be personal albums on you profiles or you can create Albums inside of groups and members can add to the shared albums.
You’ll see a new link called Media this is where you access the Album Galleries for your profile or in a group.
Example of an Group Album is this one in the Photography Group where I uploaded some photos from Saguaro NP.
If this new system works out well there is a premium edition I can buy that will give us more features.
Play around with it, upload some photos, create some albums, see how you like it.
Decided to go for it and buy the premium version, expect a little weirdness to the photo display especially in the activity stream as I migrate over to this new software. Some photos may seem missing but if you click the link they are still there just not displaying inline. In the long run though it will make for a better experience.
