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.
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
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.
Just uploaded a maintenance release for ProofBuddy 2.1 – version 188.8.131.52
Fixes in this release:
- Database creation script is now compatible with MySQL 5.5.
- Image scaling issues when using the Files on Server option and ImageMagick.
- No orders found when clicking on the Orders tab, but would show up when clicking on “All”
- Auto coupons not applying when there are no other coupons in the cart.
Pro files were not affected as part of this upgrade so Professional version users should not need to re-enter their registration keys.

Just pushed out an update for ProofBuddy 2.1 – new version is 184.108.40.206.
Download link for the latest version is http://www.proofbuddy.com/latest.zip
If you’ve already upgraded to 2.1, updating to this release is just a matter of uploading the new files on top of the old.
Upgrade instructions from an earlier version are available on our documentation wiki.
One note for Pro users. If you’ve already upgraded from 2.0 to 2.1 Pro, you will need to re-enter your registration code. When you update to 220.127.116.11 you will revert to the Lite version, but entering your code will update you back to Pro.
- 135 – A child album was not being counted as a valid choice when adding images.
- 136 – Add images from server box was blank. This was due to a setting that slipped in that’s only valid in PHP 5.3 and ProofBuddy 2.1 targeted PHP 5.2 as the minimum required version. A work around was added.
- 137 – Unable to reorder child albums
- 138 – Errors uploading images once registered as a Pro user. This didn’t affect actually loading images, but did display an error at the end of processing along with showing that twice as many images were loaded as actually were. The issue did keep the watermarking feature of the Pro version from working, but that is fixed as well.
- 139 – Check settings for image height or width of 0 to keep from a divide by zero error on image import
- 141 – Hint on the add images page was wrong. It was a tip for 2.0 instead of 2.1.
- 142 – Typo – Images were “quened” instead of “queued”
- Basic White theme was mistakenly called “Basic White – INI”
We’ve been sitting, waiting for bug reports to come in on the pre-release versions of ProofBuddy. The pre-release versions of ProofBuddy 2.1 were downloaded around 250 times. And we’re tired of waiting. Okay, really any known bugs have been squashed and our internal tests have turned up nothing new since the 4th beta of 2.1; so we’re ready to release.
We’ll get a full list of new features out, but here are a few for now.
- Flash Uploader – Instead of the simple file field, there is now a Flash uploader that should fix all sorts of issues. On the backend, ProofBuddy thinks that each file uploaded through Flash is an individual file so the file size limits are not there. Plus, you can select as many files as you want. ProofBuddy will queue them up and upload one at a time. The FTP option is still there though.
- Image processing hooks – We’ve made the image uploading process much more open to plugins. For now, you won’t see much difference. But the new hooks open up the possibility for plugins to work with images while they’re uploading.
- Error page – At the request of several users, we’ve simplified the page that comes up when ProofBuddy comes up with an error. It is now just simple black text rather than the page with the ProofBuddy logo in previous versions.
- Plugin and Theme installer – You can now browse the theme and plugin libraries from within ProofBuddy and install directly by entering your FTP information.
- Currency Symbols – You can now change the currency symbol system wide. There are many levels of customization possible, but for a majority of users simply changing the symbol under options will be enough.
- More caching – Requests to our server for things like the RSS feed and theme and plugin lists are now cached in the database instead of in a file.
- Home folder – ProofBuddy now automatically determines where it is located on your server. This may not matter to you, but it will help if you ever need to move ProofBuddy to a new server.
There are literally hundreds more changes between 2.0 and 2.1, but most probably aren’t that interesting to you. The list above covers most of the features that have been requested by many users or that fix issues that have been lingering.
Rather than re-write the instructions, I’m going to point you to the upgrade instructions on our wiki.
ProofBuddy 2.1 is a free upgrade for users who are currently using version 2.0 Pro. You will need to get in touch with us when you’re ready to upgrade so that we can update the version you have registered in our database.
You can get ProofBuddy 2.1 at our download page. You can also always visit www.proofbuddy.com/latest.zip to get the latest stable release.
Found an issue?
Of course software is never really finished, so if you come across an issue with ProofBuddy please let us know either by sending us a comment or posting on our support forum.
The third beta of ProofBuddy 2.1 was just uploaded to our site and is available at our download page.
Along with several minor issues, the most significant fix is to the theme and plugin loader. There was an issue where the plugin and theme zips were corrupted when downloaded from our server. That’s been fixed and you should now be able to install themes and plugins without having to fire up your ftp program.
Came across a bug in the first beta that would prevent installation if the database server was something other than localhost.
There was also an issue with the theme.ini file in the Basic White theme which caused a parsing error on PHP 5.2.17.
