JoomlaWorks Blog

JoomlaWorks is developing and supporting some of the most respected and popular extensions in the Joomla! community, including the groundbreaking K2, AllVideos, Simple Image Gallery and Frontpage Slideshow. Since 2006 we have developed more than 26 extensions for the Joomla! CMS, all of which have been used in hundreds of thousands of Joomla! sites across the world. Late 2010, our extensions had been downloaded more that 4 million times, out of which AllVideos and Simple Image Gallery had more than 1.5 million downloads each and K2 more than 350,000! Innovation and the open source philosophy are the two things that motivate us!
  1. Gallery layout shown: SlickShow1

    Simple Image Gallery Pro v3.6.3 has just been released. This is a bugfix release addressing a JS issue when using Simple Image Gallery Pro in K2 frontend editing.

    Here's what's been added or changed in Simple Image Gallery Pro with the release of v3.6.3:

    • Fixed JS issue that prevented control buttons (add images, save etc.) from working, when using Simple Image Gallery Pro from the K2 item edit form in the frontend.

    If you are using Joomla v3.8.8+ and K2 v2.9.0+ we highly recommend you update to this newest version for better compatibility.

  2. Simple Image Gallery Pro v3.6.2 released

    Simple Image Gallery Pro v3.6.2 has just been released. This new version primarily resolves a regular expression based bug that was introduced in v3.6.1.

    Here's what's been added or changed in Simple Image Gallery Pro with the release of v3.6.2:

    • Fixed regular expression bug that caused image galleries nested in folders within the root gallery folder not to open for editing in the backend (e.g. /images/galleries/subfolder1/subfolder2/). If you have v3.6.1 installed please upgrade to v3.6.2 to resolve this issue.
    • The "Custom Gallery Settings" styling in the insertion modal has been updated (emphasized).
    • Added better MIME detection for the Media Manager.
    • Moved all static assets (CSS, JS and images) into /media/jw_sigpro/assets/ so that sites which block access to the /administrator folder in Joomla with an HTTP password prompt load up these assets just fine when the extension is used in frontend editing.
    • Increased the default cache expiration time to 12 hours (from 2).
    • Removed empty language files, cleaned up/updated language strings.
    • Lots of minor CSS and JS improvements in the backend for a smoother/faster user experience.

    If you are using Joomla v3.8.8+ and K2 v2.9.0+ we highly recommend you update to this newest version for better compatibility.

  4. Simple Image Gallery Pro v3.6.0 released

    Simple Image Gallery Pro v3.6.0 is now available to download or upgrade. This release features many improvements & updates over 3.5.0, including a new gallery layout (template) and a compatibility fix with Virtuemart's backend component.

    Here's what's been added or changed in Simple Image Gallery Pro with the release of v3.6.0:

    • By popular demand, we added the layout from Simple Image Gallery (free) with the name "Seamless", but enhanced to support the additional features in the Pro version.
    • Captions are now enabled in the gallery layout "SlickShow1" which was introduced in v3.5.0.
    • Fixed a JS conflict in the Virtumart backend component which prevented tabs from loading correctly in the product edit form. The issue was caused by Fancybox being loaded twice: a very old version loaded by Virtuemart and the newest loaded by Simple Image Gallery Pro.
    • Removed Fancybox's built-in download option - downloads will now be fully controlled by the component only. Updated Fancybox to v3.5.5.
    • Removed social sharing (for Facebook) in PrettyPhoto.
    • Updated JS libraries elFinder & Plupload.js (used in the backend component) to their latest stable versions.
    • The Media Manager will now properly load in HTTPS sites (previously broken in v3.5.0 because one of the CDN assets was loaded over HTTP).
    • The Media Manager's UI (powered by elFinder) has been simplified and improved to cover the available viewport and resize dynamically if the browser window is resized. The rotation feature for images has also been restored (previously broken).
    • Added backwards compatibility support for image galleries created by the 3rd party plugin "SIGE" .
    • Minor Flickr path improvements.
    • Added option to override PHP's file upload limits in the component Settings.
    • Permissions table JS issue addressed in the component Settings.
    • Lots of small UI improvements/fixes in the backend component.

    If you are using Joomla v3.8.8+ and K2 v2.9.0+ we highly recommend you update to this newest version for better compatibility.

  5. Simple RSS Feed Reader v3.6.0 released

    Today we're releasing v3.6.0 of Simple RSS Feed Reader, one of the most popular feed reader modules in the Joomla community. This new release addresses a few issues and improves compatibility with PHP 7.

    Here's what's added or changed in Simple RSS Feed Reader with the release of v3.6.0:

    • More robust feed importing. The module will even "pretend" to be a regular desktop browser (by setting a user-agent) in order to read available feeds, when related restrictions apply at the feed site's server.
    • Improved PHP 7 & Joomla 3.8.x compatibility. Fixed various PHP warnings and notices.
    • Removed the "redirect" feature in v3.5.0 as it could be utilized by 3rd parties to redirect content as well. For security precaution, we still ship the redirect file only it's now used to block potential redirects from external sources.
    • The external web service used to resize images will now properly render images over HTTPS.

     

    Simple RSS Feed Reader is fully compatible with Joomla 3.x & PHP versions from 5.5 to 7.2 (less than 5.5 was not tested). It should work on Joomla 2.5 as well, but again, we haven't thoroughly tested it.

    DOWNLOAD

    You can download this version by visiting the product's page at: https://www.joomlaworks.net/extensions/free/simple-rss-feed-reader

    UPGRADING

    Simply install on top of any other 3.x release. The update will also appear in the Joomla extension updater (for Joomla v2.5 or newer).

    DEMO
