UPDATE: Version 0.4.6 has been released. Please see this entry or my CoppermineSC page for the latest information.

I’ve just released CoppermineSC version 0.4! You can download the new version or visit my CoppermineSC page for complete details about the plugin. You can also view a sample of what CoppermineSC can do. Feel free to post comments and feature requests to this entry.

New Features in Version 0.4:

  • Added new tags to pull random images from your entire gallery (these work the same way as the album and category tags, you can set the maximum number of images to include).
  • Added new setting to indicate whether individual image links should link to the full size image or to the album they belong to (thumbnails from album, category, and gallery based tags still link to the full size image, this new setting is just for the single image based tags).
  • Changed output of CoppermineSC to generate HTML that validates as transitional. A default installation of WordPress will validate as transitional and I wanted to match that.
  • Made additional changes to make CoppermineSC more compatible for users running many WordPress plugins.
  • A detailed list of all changes is available.

New Tags:

  • The following tags pull in images from the main database
    • This tag pulls in thumbnails of images from your entire gallery in the main database
      [cpg_galrand:1] – inserts 1 random thumbnail from all the images in the gallery
       
  • The following tags pull in images from an additional database
    • This tag pulls in thumbnails of images from your entire gallery from database named ‘mydbname’
      [cpg_galrand:mydbname,1] – inserts 1 random thumbnail from all the images in the gallery from database named ‘mydbname’

New Settings:

  • // set whether individual image links should link to the full size image or to the album they belong to (does not effect album, category, or gallery based thumbnails), comment out exactly one of the following two lines
    define ('CPGSC_SINGLEIMAGE_LINK', 'album');
    //define ('CPGSC_SINGLEIMAGE_LINK', 'fullsize');

     
  • // optional text for gallery link (blank text means no link will be created), comment out exactly one of the following two lines
    //define ('CPGSC_GALLERY_TEXT', '');
    define ('CPGSC_GALLERY_TEXT', 'view more images from this gallery');
