It happens to everybody… in case you’ve forgotten the login password to your ProofBuddy site we’ve put out this script that will reset it for you. One very important note though. Once you’ve reset your password, take the script off of your server.
We’ve updated our Twitter feed plugin to add support for @ and # links.
If you’re upgrading from a previous version you can simply copy this version on top of version 1.0.
Need a little help. Is anyone out there using a Mac with Safari on their ProofBuddy site and having problems clicking links on the admin pages? We’ve noticed on some of the pages we’re having issues with links, but from what we’ve found about the issue online it’s possibly an issue specific to the Mac we use for testing.
Any input from those using ProofBuddy with a Mac and Safari would be appreciated. Are the links working for you like they should or do they just not respond to clicks? Most likely it would be either the links on the right side menus or the subtabs under Options.
A new plugin is available for download that will add a variable set to ProofBuddy to allow you to display contents of packages within your theme.
Once installed and activated, there will be 3 new variables available for use.
Will display the contents of any packages available for the current image. This variable only works within the fullimage.tpl template file.
Displays the package contents for the image specified by #. For example, if you want to display the contents of packages for image ID 123 you would put <!–packageContents:123–> into your theme file.
Displays the contents for packages associated with the current album. This will typically be the same as the current image, but may not be if you’ve set the image to individual pricing.
In the plugin folder is a small CSS file named packageContents.css. There are a handful of CSS selectors that you can use to customize how the list looks on page. Each element is wrapped in a <span> so you can style it pretty much however you like.
And a thanks to Louis DiChello at Custom Creative Photo for the idea behind this plugin.
It’s been a feature built in to ProofBuddy for a while, but one that’s never really been documented. By creating a link to your site with a special variable you can give your visitors the ability to login automatically without needing to know the passcode to an album.
Let’s say you have an album with a passcode of 12345 and your ProofBuddy is setup in the /proofs/ folder on your server. The following HTML will create a link allowing your visitor to view an album just by clicking.
<a href="/proofs/index.php?p=12345">View your album</a>
Notice the p=12345 after index.php. That’s where you’ll enter the passcode.
But nothing says you can only do text links. You can also wrap an image in the link and have a photo linking into their album. And you can send these links to clients via email and give them a one-click method to get into their albums.
One note though. Once your client is logged in, they’ll still need to logout to see any other albums. To ProofBuddy there is no difference in logging in this way or logging in by typing in a passcode.
If you’d like to see this in action, we use this on our demo site.
