phTagr 2.2 released!

June 29th, 2012

I’m thrilled to announce a new stable version of phTagr since 2.1.3 (from January 2011). A lot has changed and plenty improvements found their way on the long road towards an amazing web photo gallery phTagr version 2.2. The new slogan was changed to ‘Tag, Browse, and Share Your Photos’ to clarify the target for your own web base picture album.

The new version 2.2 has an improved tagging workflow and shows
more photos in the explorer. Due multiple access groups per media and a bulk download of files the sharing was simplified, too. 2.2 improves also the current image filter for your custom selection of media.

Visit the demo gallery at demo.phtagr.org

Enjoy using your own private photo gallery phTagr!

Main features since 2.1.3

  • Improved tagging of your media in explorer
  • Bulk download of images as zip archive. Thanks to Damian Popescu
  • Multiple access groups for media for better sharing
  • Add MTS and MP4 file support. Thanks to josefwells
  • Add BMP, PSD, TIF, OGG, and GPX file support
  • Image rotation via explorer

  • Changed frontend theme from greenish to dark
  • Enlarge preview size from 600 to 960 pixels
  • Upgrade CakePHP from 1.3 to 2.1
  • Usage of SASS for easy CSS updates

Other new features

  • Split location search to sublocation, city, state, country
  • Add test cases (66 tests) to avoid regression

  • Add read only image filter. This file filter does not write meta data
  • Add new system function: Delete all unused meta data

and of cause endless fixes and improvements

    Hello, I am attempting to update to 2.2 as well, but I can’t figure out how to change the .sass/.css in my theme?
    I copied webroot/css to View/Themed/Chrisd/webroot/css and in Controller/AppController.php I added
    $this->theme = “Chrisd”; to the very last line of the beforeRender function, but when I go to make changes to the View/Themed/Chrisd/webroot/css/default/_colors.sass nothing gets picked up. However making the same changes to the webroot/css/default/_colors.sass work fine, but obviously it is undesirable to change those files. It seems like there should be a way to update the load_path option, but I am at a loss as to figuring out the proper way to do that. It would be nice if setting a theme somehow magically updated the load_path so that it attempts to pull from the theme .sass files and uses the defaults as a backup…

    Maybe I am doing it wrong or so… any pointers are greatly appreciated!

    Good work out there. Still loving phTagr.
    Chris D.
