Following an inquiry from Eric, we started to look into ways of integrating SlideShowPro flash application with pixyBlog. We instantly found that it integrated very well. An article outlining the steps involved can be found on our wiki here.
A working demo of the integration can be found on woklife.com. The integration includes linking from the gallery pages directly to the corresponding slideshow for that gallery, see the galleries page for a sample.
We will continue to play around with SlideShowPro and look at more ways to integrate and customize the application for pixyBlog. We would be interested in hearing any suggestions or comments anyone has on this.
Today a minor pixyBlog update went online. The update includes some bug fixes and improvements, improved handling for domains/URL's and a new theme for our users.
URL and domain handling improvements:
New Theme Added:
That's it for now. The next big update is being tested right now and should be released shortly.
A new theme is now available for our users, it's a variation on the theme which was originally created for Eric Kelly's photoblog; Conomocity. As part of updating Eric's theme we have released a version of it named Zebra. You can see the theme in use on his site photoblog.conomocity.com.
We have also bundled some updates for all the other themes. Most of these are minor fixes just for browser compatibility, but the Mangosteen theme has been revamped with a new colour scheme and other smaller changes. You can see the new Mangosteen theme in use on woklife.com.
For those of you who have customized your theme and are either wanting to update to the new revision or want to change themes completely, please read our FAQ article on updating your theme.
