Gallery v2.1: New Features

We have done a bit of tweaking and some upgrades to the recently fantastic upgrades to galleries and gallery folders. Don't want to use the standard three image thumbnail compilation? No problem. Want the choice between a text only or image only icons for the sidebar? No sweat.
Got too carried away moving things around and want to just put it all back?  Click away.

And if you have a subscription and wants some funky CSS to match your journal? Have at it!

Here is a list of the upgrades! Enjoy!

    :bulletred: 'Everything' section replaced with a new Browse section
    :bulletred: One-click reset/re-order your Featured deviations
    :bulletred: Customized sidebar pictures for folders
    :bulletred: Text-only and Icon-only mode for folder sidebar
    :bulletred: Redesigned folder page: Text placed appears on left or right
    :bulletred: Full CSS control on folder pages for subscribers and seniors ( And enjoy the LIVE update of the CSS as soon as hit ok! )
    :bulletred: Numbered pages
    :bulletred: Scrapbook tab added

It stands for Cascading Style Sheets.

i have a problem.

i cant get to rearrange my deviations in the gallery. i want to arrage so i can set it to newest > oldest. it doesnt work, when i set it to that, my devs just turn gray, and when i refresh theyre back to the same old arrangement.

its not only me who have this problem. its the same for oldest > newest as well.

Okay, I doubt I'll get a response to this, but anyway:

I love the search bar for your gallery. That'd be so cool if there was a search bar in your favorites instead of that lousy categories thing. That'd be pretty useful to us favwhores at least -_-

What's the difference between the scraps-section and the scrapbook?

Great update, except for one thing. Folder description text on the left or right wastes loads of screen space- there should be an option for it at the top as well.

well i think if dont type anything in then there will be nothing in that space. so you could have more space lol.

This is better but just one thing:
why is the option to show your most popular deviations gone?

Reply
:icononixa:
onixa Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2008  Professional Photographer

its not gone, you just have to click the "browse" button at left-top. and then when all your devations are showing then the newest/popular section shows.

Its a neat idea but so far its not turning out to be the most reliable feature. So far I can only get Jpg's to remain as icons, png and gif support would be nice to cut down on file sizes.

Also, how come we STILL don't have a category and date label under folders and featured? Even if the artist has selected his best and brightest to be in his featured section, id still like to see what category they are in, also the date when posted would be a massive help when arranging icons yourself.

I think you should really concentrate on the little features first before getting ahead of yourselves and start releasing even more things to go wrong.

(Paragraph 2)
well if you go to "edit" doesnt it give you the option of having like "text" or "icon only" or "with text and icon" I mean, i think it will show the title, the date, and probly the category if you select the "show icon and text" option.

if not then sorry lol. i tried :heart:

This is perfect, now. The only gripe I had before was with the "Everything" section, and scraps being shown alongside the finished works. I'm thrilled about this update.
