Updates / Changelog
v3.5 – February 14, 2017 – Twitter summary card, PhotoSwipe zoom setting, Social sharing improved, RML v2.8.3 compatibility, Jetpack Photon and Facebook fixes.
- New PhotoSwipe setting: Zoom effect. Ability to disable opening zoom animation from the thumbnails and/or the zooming feature on the opened, large image itself.
- Sharing to Twitter now results in “The Summary Card with Large Image” that features a large, full-width prominent image alongside a tweet. It’s supported when sharing from prettyPhoto or PhotoSwipe (with JIG Smart Deeplinking). Shared URL is not changed, it’s only a server side enhancement.
- Real Media Library v2.8.3 compatibility (backward compatibility maintained).
- Pinterest Pin button changed to Pinterest Save button (red) to be more consistent with their idea.
- Lazy loading the social sharing buttons of prettyPhoto. This allows more stable loading of these sharers, and most importantly: smoother animation between photos and during opening them, they also seem to load faster as the social sharers don’t interfere with the photo. Side effect is that you can see the social sharers appear after the photo.
- The Twitter button in prettyPhoto is significantly upgraded to appear faster and be more stable.
- Jetpack Photon is disabled for Facebook content since they don’t support creating thumbnails for Facebook content anymore. This prevents an error, and lets you show the gallery using normal thumbnail creation.
- PhotoSwipe would get stuck on the same picture if it was opened coming from a Facebook share.
- Some private Facebook photos had problem loading their thumbnails, if their URL included urlencoded bits like ?_nc_eui2=v1%3A where they got double urldecoded, resulting in missing thumbnail.
- Action on JIG install and uninstall were not running since a recent update, restored them.
- Having an SVG before a normal image in the grid, turned off Photon for the rest of the images. It only turns off Photon for the SVG now (and animated GIFs).
- No longer urldecoding every link on the thumbnail, only where it’s necessary and the complete URL is urlencoded. This fixes showing private Facebook content in the lightbox that has ?_nc_eui2=v1%3A in the URL.
- Rare loading problem of Magnific Popup is fixed (JS error regarding “require”).
- Spanish translation
