    Social Gallery v3.0: Bugs Fixes and Feature Requests

    Hi all,

    We are working hard on v3.0 of the Social Gallery Plugin and are now at a point where we would like to reach out to our users to gather further feedback around what their pains are with v3.0.

    Currently our development list contains a few major headaches experienced through dealing with support as well as some features as a sneak peek which we are adding

    MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS PLANNED
    1. Improvement of the Quick Scan and Full Scan
    2. Compatibility with NextGen 2.0+
    3. Smarter recognition of AJAX (load more) for JIG


    SNEAK PEAK AT SOME NEW FEATURES
    1. Social Stats overlay on top of images (optional)
    2. Google Analytics tracking of image views
    3. SocialSmart - the smarter way to display images


    What else would you like to see on this list? As for "more social sharing options" we feel that currently the social sharing (facebook, twitter etc) are sufficient and too many of these sharing icons will clutter the display too much.

    Please provide your feedback on this thread!

    Thanks and we look forward to bringing you an improved kick ass v3.0

    It's very intresting the callback url function with hash index, that when i click on like button, my recent activities shows the hash index url.
    In this version of social gallery it's not work properly.
    And implementation for mobile with social button and comment box.

    Thanks and excuse me for my english.

    Fallback URL as hash index? It will show the hash index url if you're not run a scan.

    Mobile does have social button and comment boxes but you'll need the mobile add on for that, this won't change as part of v3.0 it will still need the mobile add on to function with mobiles.

    Please post up a thread in the support forum with a link as an example and I'll take a look.

    Tagging people on photos (like it can be done on facebook) would be a great feature, if that is possible.
    Thanks for asking

    I would very much like the ability to customise the page that Facebook links to.

    I understand you can do this via code however I would like an easy way of doing this for non techie people.

    What else would you like to see...?
    Hello,

    Thank you for asking! Inconceivable!

    As a recent user I found two things I'd love to see:

    1. Library Builder

    Give users the OPTION of using OR skipping the library builder. I installed it on a live site and a test site and in both cases it froze during the initial build and cannot be remedied.


    2. Image/Logo

    When an image is clicked and the Social Gallery modal starts to work the magic there is a mini-thumbnail at the top left next to the name.

    Give users an on/off switch for that image, and/or give users the ability to select an image from the WordPress Media Library (or upload).

    THANK YOU for asking.

    Chris

    @Chris, this image header can be added from the media library, it's under settings and then style, then social header image, noted about the skip function for the library updater that's already in.

    1. Facebook Share (Now is only Fb Like)
    2. To put Own Ads 300x250 instead of Fb comments
    3. If Like/Share hash pic , need to be that Fb on Fb wall/page
    example for 3:
    If you share this pic (http://www.ibar.ba/cheers-pub-21-09-2013/#sg36) on Fb Page/Fb wall will not see that pic. Will see only featured pic.

    Very excited about the new release--especially the integration with NextGen 2.0+

    Here's the fixes I'd like to see:

    1. Turn off automatic image upscaling to 120% and fix the scaling option so that changes made in the Admin panel are actually applied to the images. I'm a professional photographer and my images are optimized for the dimensions that I upload them at. Seeing them get less sharp and pixelated because of upscaling by 20% has been a problem for me.

    2. Allow commenting on individual images. Currently, when a user comments on one photo within the gallery, that comment and 'likes' applied to it are applied to ALL images in that gallery. Can't the comment / likes be applied to just the individual image? Here's an example: http://tommyschultz.com/blog/uluwatu-surf-trip-bali/

    3. Include the option to remove the FB Social Plugin Gallery link on the gallery images. I'm happy to promote you all, but I don't like having it forced on me when I paid for a premium plugin.

    4. Allow the option for the full-sized image to be indexed by Google. As it is now, it seems that the file path is not linked, I would like the images in my galleries to be crawled and indexed. Ideally the social gallery would generate individual 'pages' for each image that would be optimized for SEO with the image title and caption.

    5. Clean up the social panel to the right of the images. As it is now, the social media icons appear jumbled and not together and for some reason the 'like' button is appearing behind the comment box on my images.

    6. Include the option for the image title to be included above the caption info on each image.

    7. I often see the error: Warning: http://tommyschultz.com/blog/social-...-off-the-day-1 is unreachable. How to fix that? Here's an example: http://tommyschultz.com/blog/surfer-...ali-boat-trip/

    That's all I have for now, looking forward to the new release!

    If you share this pic (http://www.ibar.ba/cheers-pub-21-09-2013/#sg36) on Fb Page/Fb wall will not see that pic. Will see only featured pic.
    That's a downside of the hash index I'm afraid and was the main problem with v1.4. using a hash index is like telling facebook to like part of a page, Facebook don't support og:meta tags for parts of a page, you only have one set of og:meta (or in a lot of cases none) so when you like the image, facebook scrapes the URL for any og:meta if it doesn't see any it takes the first image it finds

    I'll think about this and see if there's anything fancy I can do to workaround this, but it's a Facebook drawback and the reason why we created the social gallery pages.

    @tommy, most of what you mention is an issue with your setup and they all work in v2.3, here's some more comments:-

    2. Allow commenting on individual images. Currently, when a user comments on one photo within the gallery, that comment and 'likes' applied to it are applied to ALL images in that gallery. Can't the comment / likes be applied to just the individual image? Here's an example: http://tommyschultz.com/blog/uluwatu-surf-trip-bali/
    This is dealt with through using Social Gallery pages - please use Social Gallery Pages

    3. Include the option to remove the FB Social Plugin Gallery link on the gallery images. I'm happy to promote you all, but I don't like having it forced on me when I paid for a premium plugin.
    Under the comments? This is Facebook's branding not ours and is on their code so it's something we have to live with - you may be able to hack it out with CSS though

    4. Allow the option for the full-sized image to be indexed by Google. As it is now, it seems that the file path is not linked, I would like the images in my galleries to be crawled and indexed. Ideally the social gallery would generate individual 'pages' for each image that would be optimized for SEO with the image title and caption.
    Again this is Social Gallery Pages: There's an option for this in the settings - the default is they are indexed

    5. Clean up the social panel to the right of the images. As it is now, the social media icons appear jumbled and not together and for some reason the 'like' button is appearing behind the comment box on my images.
    Are they jumbled on the main site, no - therefore this is something funny with your theme setup which you'll need to fix

    6. Include the option for the image title to be included above the caption info on each image. I can think about this, would it link to the SG page ideally?

    7. I often see the error: Warning: http://tommyschultz.com/blog/social-...-off-the-day-1 is unreachable. How to fix that? Here's an example: http://tommyschultz.com/blog/surfer-...ali-boat-trip/ That's Facebook saying it cannot see the URL so is either a permalink issue or something else

    Maybe you can do similar for Social gallery pages or take some idea.
