WordPress PhotoSmash Extend: In case anyone was concerned, PhotoSmash appears to functioning completely normally under WordPress 2.9. I’m running 2.9 on this site, and the demo galleries are working fine.

I’m making some enhancements to the photo tagging that is currently available in PhotoSmash that will be coming out in a week or so. The test blog I’m using for that development is running WordPress 2.9 as well.

I think 2.9 will be a huge benefit to all of you who are using the Add to WP Media option. This is going to let you do some editing of your images using the new image editor in the WordPress Media gallery admin pages. This includes rotating images, resizing thumbnails, and grabbing different crop areas for thumbs.

Hi wordpress photosmash extend function, very, very useful update to WordPress! A hearty “THANK YOU!” to the WP core Team.

And while I’m at it, thanks to all of my PhotoSmash users for sticking with me through this year! PhotoSmash went live back in February of this year (I think…). It’s come a long way, and the user community has been very helpful in rooting out the problems and pointing the way toward the features that make PhotoSmash a unique and hopefully useful piece of the WordPress community.

WordPress PhotoSmash Extend is Almost Ready

At long last, I have the first version of PhotoSmash Extend almost ready to go out the door. While I have enjoyed providing PhotoSmash and the support for it for free, I plan to charge a small fee for PhotoSmash Extend. 99% of users who want PhotoSmash features will find everything they want in the main, free plugin. I think there are somewhere aroud 1,000 active users of PhotoSmash, maybe a few more (at least that’s how many usually upgrade in the first couple of days after a new release). Nearly all of those users will have everything they need in PhotoSmash itself, but there might be some who want these advanced features.

Enough rambling…so, what’s in PhotoSmash Extend???

Create New WordPress Posts on Uploading an Image: This is the hallmark feature of PhotoSmash Extend! It gives you the ability to create a new Post when someone uploads an image to a PhotoSmash Gallery. Here are a few of the configuration options:

Use attributes in the normal photosmash Shortcode to turn on new post creation for a particular upload form: [photosmash create_post=newpost] (without the slashes…can’t figure out how to write a shortcode that doesn’t look like a shortcode to WordPress )
The attribute is: create_post; the value is the name of the custom layout to use for building your new post
You create an html template in PhotoSmash Custom Layouts that will be used for new posts…you can have as many as you like and invoke them in the shortcode above
Add preview_post=true to the shortcode to show the user a Preview link to the new post after upload is complete
Control who can create new posts: Admins, Authors/Contributors, or Subscribers
Control the default status of the new post: Pending, Draft, or Published
Show a multiple-select list box of your WordPress categories (options for setting the category parent node – does all categories by default, excluding categories, setting the depth of the hierarchy to show, and setting whether it is multi or single select – multi select by default)
Allows setting a Custom Field in the post for a post thumbnail
You can use a standard form or a custom form for this upload.
Your new post template can be as complex as you like and you can use standard and custom fields at will…it can even include shortcodes (like a new photosmash gallery within the new post)
So, it’s pretty flexible. You’re creativity is pretty much set free on this.

Module 2: Set Text/Image/Ad/etc Inserts to Display within a Gallery
This module of PhotoSmash Extend lets you set up special inserts to display within your galleries. You control what you want the insert to be…you can specify as many different ones that you like and it will rotate through them. So, you could set a Google ad, an image, and some other kind of message for one Insert Set and assign that set to a gallery (or as many galleries as you want). Those galleries will display those 3 inserts starting on the image # you specified to start and skipping X number of images until it shows the next one. You can put a limit on how many inserts get show, and the gallery will loop through those 3 inserts until it hits your maximum # of inserts for the page.

WordPress PhotoSmash Extend Features and Photo Gallery Available Finally. Just create unlimited number of insert sets and assign them to galleries. Each gallery can only be assigned one Insert Set. Probably helpful to somebody out there. WordPress PhotoSmash Extend Features and Galleries Available Finally. PhotoSmash is Compatible with WordPress 2.9. PhotoSmash Extend is Nearly Ready!
