Your visitors won't notice any differences in this brand new Pixelpost version, which means you won't need to upgrade your templates.
But that doesn't mean there aren't any changes! Look at the list below to find out what's changed:
The new install assistant will guide you through a new installation or an upgrade. It tests your system thoroughly before installing or upgrading Pixlpost to ensure everything will work ok.
If it finds an issue, don't worry: it also provides you with tips and information helping you correct any problems.
Find out more about it in the Installation Guide.
Ok, let's compare them one by one. There's quite a lot...
Looks the same? Yes, but there's a new hidden feature: click on the red headline which says
Images - Re-upload, Edit or Delete images || Select Categories / Keywords, month, ID
and reveal the new filter functions of the image list.
We cleaned this section up a lot. A bunch of buttons have been removed and replaced by a neat submenu for published, moderated and Akismet marked comments.
Check out the new Donate Button. And if you're in a generous mood, feel free to send a donation to help Pixelpost make even better!
The addons list has a new color scheme: green for running addons and orange for disabled ones. And to make it easier for you, we've sorted the addons in alphabetical order and grouped the disabled addons at the bottom of the page.
Addons with the wrong file permission are shown in red.
Defensio is a spam filtering web service that you can use to protect your blog or web application from comment spam. This addon is designed to give you the power of Defensio to your Pixelpost photoblog.
You have to obtain an API key for Defensio and enter it into the Options/Spam Control page.
Attention: If you used the Akismet addon before and want to switch to Defensio, please disable Akismet as Defensio is not designed to work in conjunction with another spam filter.
Read the whole documentation at Defensio page!
You can set a feed title, description and copyright notice in admin options. Select which feeds you want to show and use the updated tag for autodetecting the feeds according to the feed settings: <FEED_AUTO_DISCOVERY>.
If you want to include your feed and link manually, you still can use the old tags <RSS_AUTODETECT_LINK> and <ATOM_AUTODETECT_LINK> (for backward-compatibility)
The comment feed can now be turned off and on in admin options.
Two new feed tags: <TAG_RSS_LINK> and <TAG_ATOM_LINK>
In addition to the incredible number of available languages already included in Pixelpost, we now have two new languages, Hungarian and Romanian. You can also choose Spanish and Swedish for the admin language.
Until now, workspaces were only provided for the admin section. It was almost impossible to bring new functions into the front pages, like the image or browse page, without hacking the core files.
With the new front workspaces, addons can benefit of Pixelpost's own functions. A new world opens to addon authors and we all are very excited to see what you will be able to create with this new flexibility.
Right now most front workspaces are found in the comment section but there are already rumours about some hot new addons taking advantage of this. Such as new anti-spam addons or a reply-to-comments addon.
