[Elgg 1.5-1.12 & 2.X - 4.X: Tidypics] v1.6.8

Release Notes

Supports 1.5.x-1.7.x

Fixed a bug with resizing images. Added some markup and css to improve photo album layout. Improved the admin settings page layout.

Install/upgrade like any other plugin. If you haven't upgraded since Tidypics 1.5.x, an upgrade button will appear on your Tidypics admin page.

  • The data directory did change.  But the data directory was empty.  Are the files stored in the database?

    Why do new uploads work?  I hope everything wasn't cached?

  • I switched the data directory back and the files don't reappear. 

  • On the album page how do I change the default Gallery display to List view?

  • I am getting an error to open pics from logout which are set to public access. it show me list of pics in album but when i click on pic to open then it give me an error "you must login to view that" somethinglike that.

    I already uninstall and intall lot of times changes default access to public, changes in albus access are not help full, I think there is an entry in database. please help me to solve this issue. In starting my default access was set to loggedin users. but now I want public.


  • When I tag a user in a photo a message is written to the activity stream, but the usericon is missing. Anybody know how to fix this?

    User was tagged in the photo ....

  • @gillie the same thing happens if somebody comment on any image. the riverupdate only showing link with title but I never seen image icon in river. I think it is a bug , I tried to fix this but no success. I will try this today and update you if I get anything right. Do you know anything about my problem in above post?? otherwise we need to wait for tidypics team's reply.

  • Where do I donate to when the next release comes out??

  • @ghumanz Thank you.

    The only thing I know about your problem is that your access changes take affect only on future uploaded images, and not on the images uploaded before the change.

    Don't know if that can be fixed in the database.

  • New release coming soon. It will be a beta because of the amount of changes in the core library. @gillie It fixes the icon display issue for tags.

  • I don't know if this has already been reported but i found a bug in the river object image create.php file where the username is not being set to a link.

    to fix I changed:

    $string = sprintf(elgg_echo("image:river:created"),$performed_by->name, $image_link, $album_link);


    $string = sprintf(elgg_echo("image:river:created"),$url, $image_link, $album_link);


    thanks :)

  • Looking forward to the upgrade, what features are you adding?

  • Request for translation help posted here: http://community.elgg.org/mod/groups/topicposts.php?topic=604797&group_guid=2559

    You should be able to infer what features have been added from this.


  • don't know if it's been addressed already, but i think (as far as keeping a standard guideline) theres a small bug in the /default/river/object/image/create.php .

    from the original

        $string = sprintf(elgg_echo("image:river:created"),$performed_by->name, $image_link, $album_link);

    this will give you a string similar to : User added the photo photoname to album albumname.

    but the convention of the riverdashboard is to provide a backlink to the persons profile through their name as so : User added the photo photoname to album albumname.

    the change is simple

    $string = sprintf(elgg_echo("image:river:created"),$url, $image_link, $album_link);

    just changing $performed_by->name to $url

    for some reason $url was declared but never used?

  • Cant wait to test out that Flash uploader!!!!!

  • Hi guys.

    What do I need to do if I wish to limit the counts of user albums??

    For example I want to set as only one album can be created by an user.  A simple way for that is I could hide 'create new album' link from side menu if that user has already created an album.

    How could I make a condition ther??

    Thanks in advance.

    Forgive my english.

  • Hi,

    great plugin! Some simple question: I am using it in German and I noticed, that the group-widget is still named in English ("Group albums"), although it appears on the left side in German, as it is available in my language file. Is there something I need to change?


  • @anand - the menu item is added in start.php

    @n_1l - fixed in the beta that we released Saturday. Not sure when the final release will occur.

  • @Tidypics Team, I have installed tidypics and using GD library, when i upload photo, a photo with question mark appears. Why is this happening. I dont want to use imagemagick as I am using apache2triad on windows machine.

    Any fix for this?

  • @Tidypics Team : Yeah. I did. Thanks.

  • Hola


    Tengo un problema con el plugin. últimos días, cada vez que subo una imagen aparece con el símbolo "?". es decir, da un error y hasta que no.
    Salvar a alguien cómo solucionar este problema?

    Lo siento por mi Inglés, yo uso el traductor de google. y desde ya gracias por sus respuestas.

  • @ Tidypics Team

    Is it possible to set a password to an album? I think this feature would be very useful, because if only friends can see an album, sometimes it would be useful to ensure only one good friend among friends that access!



  • is there any flickr integration with tidypics? thanks!

  • If a comment is made on the photo (seen from the album, not on the riverdashboard), the update shown on riverdashboard just mentions that a comment has been made on the foto (as a hyperlink). It would be good if the comment is mentioned in the riverdashboard, as well as the photo displayed as a thumbnail.

  • @nicolas

    If you look at the "Administration->Tidypics Administration" Help tab, it tells you that the question marks can be due to a resizing error.  It also explains what else you should do.
