Update available for download that fixes a few specific issues users have been coming across.
- Added pb_get_images_query filter. Right now this is unused, but will be used when available in a plugin we’re working on. Previous versions of PB will fall back to a slower method when that plugin is used.
- Updating quantities in the cart now updates all quantity fields.
- no_width, no_height, and no_dimensions attributes added to the pb_img shortcode so you can have ProofBuddy not specify either the width, height, or neither when outputting the large image. This is mostly for responsive themes where a max-width attribute is set in CSS.
- Added type attribute to the pb_cart_table attribute. You can now add type=div to the shortcode to output the list of thumbnails wrapped in divs instead of a table. This will take a bit more styling on your part though to make it look like a grid. The default is still a table.
Small update to the Crop Preview Plugin.
If this plugin was active, but the main ProofBuddy plugin was not it would cause an error on your site. That’s been fixed. Crop Preview now checks if ProofBuddy is active before loading itself.
Nothing major, but there were a few minor issues we needed to clean up.
- The add to cart shortcodes now return nothing if the image isn’t available for purchase. They’ve always done this when an image was marked “None” for pricing, but they now also do if there aren’t any pricing options set instead of returning an empty dropdown.
- The add to cart quantity field no longer defaults to 50px wide as a CSS style. This was causing any theme CSS to not work on that field.
- Added pb_next_thumb and pb_previous_thumb shortcodes
- Currency and percentage symbols were causing fields to not format correctly
By far the most common request we get for a plugin is the ability to watermark images inside ProofBuddy. And now it’s there!
We just uploaded the Watermark plugin to our Add-Ons library. Once activated, and after you upload an image for your watermark, all full sized images inside of ProofBuddy will have a watermark placed in your choice of position. And if you get tired of the watermark image, or just want to change where it’s put on your images you can easily change the settings and reset the watermarks on all images.
And, he says with in a whisper, there may be a coupon code for this plugin over on our Facebook page. Hurry though, it’s only going to be valid through the end of September.
Updated ProofBuddy to version 3.0.4 to fix a couple of issues that needed cleaning up.
- Settings form updated so that plugins can now upload files through that form
- Draft albums that have not been explicitly saved now show up in lists
- Draft albums are listed separately from the rest of albums in the list table
- Users now unable to login to draft or trash albums
- do_action fixed on images list table. Not a visible fix to users, but could affect future plugins.
- Check for when a setting added through a plugin specifies a callback but that callback isn’t valid
- Check for when a setting adds a setting that requires an included file, but that file doesn’t exist
- Shortcodes added so that you can create album login forms on non ProofBuddy pages
- pb_album_exp_date, pb_album_open_date, pb_album_event_date shortcodes modified so that you can now pass an id attribute to insert the dates of an album into any page or post.
ProofBuddy 3.0.3 was just uploaded and is ready for download. No major new features. This was mostly just a release to clean up a few issues that have come up since 3.0.2.
- In some cases the built-in [gallery] shortcode was getting inserted onto the top of the album page. It’s now being filtered out since it’s not wanted on album pages.
- The function that determined whether an album had expired was sometimes a day off.
Clients having trouble with the difference in proportion between what they see on screen and what they have printed? This might be the plugin for you.
What the Crop Preview plugin does is add a mask to your full sized images showing what part of the image will be printed. It does assume a center crop, but it gives a good idea of what to expect from their prints.
You can download the crop plugin from here.
