  • photowidget.smugmug.flickr.picasa

    I did integrate the Flickr widget from RoyTanck.com as a Joomla module. This version do not depend on Roy’s site, and run offline if needed as i rewrite the RSS parsing code myself. For now you can see it live running on the right side of Roy’s site

    • Your Smugmug/ Picasa or Flickr RSS feed. To get feed URL one for your Flickr photo stream, simply go to your photo stream's page and right-click the little orange RSS icon at the bottom. Select ‘Copy link location’ or ‘Copy shortcut’ and paste it into the form below. For Picasa, there’s a link called ‘RSS’ at the bottom right of the ‘My Photos’ page, and a small icon on the sidebar on other pages. For Smugmug the icon is located at the bottom of the page.
    • The dimensions for the widget. This depends almost entirely from the layout of your website. Square aspect rations work best (equal width and height). At very large sizes (400px and up) the thumbnails might have bigger pixels than usual.
    • The background color for the widget. You can use Colorpicker.com to get the right value for your website. The selected color serves only as a backup if ‘Use background transparency’ is selected.
    • RSS feed is also optional photowidget also support up to 10 images on your server.

    Before releasing I need to clean the code a bit, test the installer, write a small documentation, submit module to Joomla! extension.. maybe tomorrow, but before the week end for sure!

    What’s New

    NEW  Support for RokBox 2.0, use under Rendering “RokBox 2”, instead of “RokBox

    NOTE: If you are upgrading from RokBox 1 and you are using the old RokBox syntax, such as {rokbox} or <a rel="rokbox" .., you can enable the Backward Compatibility from both the System and Content plug-in. Be aware that the Backward compatibility can dramatically slow down the loading of your site. It is highly suggested to convert the old syntax into the new one. Starting from cedphotofeed 2.6.3 you can use the Rendering “RokBox 2” and switch off the backward compatibility.

    NEW  A new settings in the administrator panel “Force”. This setting is optional, default value is auto detect- If you use custom URL for your hosting library (like visuals.waltercedric.com instead of www.smugmug.com), you may want to force the library instead of letting cedPhotoFeed auto detect the right host based on URL. You can either set "Force" = "Yes" in administrator panel system wide or add this optional settings now in every mambot. Here is a axample of a custom URL that use SmugMug:

    {rss uri=http://www.darbym.com/hack/feed.mg?Type=nicknameRecentPhotos&Data=DarbyM&format=rss200 limit=3 force=Smugmug}

    Concerning the size of pictures displayed when using Picasa

    Concerning the size of pictures displayed when using Picasa, the max picture size returned by the RSS feed is height="265px" and width="512px", embedded thumbnails being of size

    1. height="38px" width="72px"
    2. height="75px" width="144px"

    FEATURES:

    photofeed.settings

    The photoFEED plugin uses the lastRSS class to grab images from a Smugmug, Flickr, Picasa or any RSS feed to display in any Joomla! hosted website.

    It provides access to the Images title, description and content

    USAGE: you can do it from any of your post or page. you can set any RSS feed like Smugmug, Picasa, Flickr etc with a limit of how many photos you want in your post/page. You need to keep in mind that you need to assign to things there:

       1. rss uri = feed location
    2. limit = number of photos to be shown

    the plugin will replace only the text within the post/page which is encoded with a curly brace {} with resulted photos. The remaindered text will be same. Add your RSS Feed in the body of your post or page in the following format

    {rss uri=FeedURL limit=5}

    Alternatively you can leave the limit blank like this to get all the photos {rss uri=flickr/picasa/smugmugrssfeed_location limit=}

    Note:

    This Joomla! plugin is based on fdsPhotoFEED v1.0.0 and all credits should be given to the original author: Nurul Ferdous, I did just wrap his hard work in a Joomla! content plugin to solve my needs.

    • I am in the process of moving my gallery from gallery2 to smugmug.com

      This has some advantages,

      •  Better bandwidth,
      • No security update to do,
      • Google picasa integration,
      • Unlimited space storage,
      • Some very nice themes using ajax.
      • Keyword tagging for searching and categorization of photos.
      • Enables Google Maps integration for photos with GPS.
      • Decentralized storage for  my pictures (60%, or 100 terabytes, of photos are stored on the Amazon S3 service), and
      • The ability to propose them in 4000  * 3000 pixels (gallery2 and GD were having problem, mainly memory issues).


      Anyway, I have 14 days to test this new gallery. In between, you can enjoy it as well and report me any issues you may encounter.

      Browse my gallery by keyword http://cedricwalter.smugmug.com/keyword/

      Ive tried Flickr.com but was not happy with their user interface...

    •     

      I've decide to replace my existing gallery, powered by Gallery2, at gallery.waltercedric.com by a SmugMug account, mainly because:

      • My server has only 1Gb of ram
      • My current traffic is not compatible with the streaming of 12MPixels images.
      • Flickr and SmugMug both support IPTC tags and EXIF captions embedded in photos.
      • I like the graphical user interface of smugmug a lot, look more professional, even more than  Flickr
      • API well documented and huge number of tools to upload data


      All in all and thanks to the integration in picasathough a smugmug picasa plugin, it has been very easy to send 7GB (roughly 2000 pictures)

      All pictures (1500 !) of my trip in Australia are now online at http://cedricwalter.smugmug.com/ 

      If you are lost due to the huge number of pictures, yo'll like the keyword page http://cedricwalter.smugmug.com/keyword/

      Now I need to find a way to share  1300 Australia's clips in HD 1080i avchd...

    • 78px-Smugmug_logo 22711-250px-picasa-logo.svg Flickr_logo Photofeed is a small content plugin for Joomla! 1.5 that allow you to inline a set of images from your favorite online gallery: Smugmug, Flickr, Picasa or any RSS feed in any article.

      Ed Henderson (http://www.henderland.net/) has submitted me a patch today that correct and improve Photofeed by a huge margin. It has done such a great job that I deliver this version now. I plan to add in the next version Photofeed 1.2 full support for gallery2 (aka G2), don’t forget to request new features in the Smugmug forum support board

      July 7, 2009 - List of fixes and enhancements from Ed Henderson

      Bug fixes

      1. Fixed malformed image URL (had double-quote at the end and not at the start so didn't display properly in lightbox)
      2. Fixed problem with "@" and single-quote in captions (this broke the php code)
      3. Fixed $library not being passed thru to rss_parse function (this caused the image to not be viewed via lightbox)

      Enhancements:

      1. Specify the thumbnail size in pixels
      2. Specify if square thumbnail or maintain aspect ratio (if not square then thumbnail size just specifies the height)
      3. Now recognize multiple {rss...} tags in a single article.
      4. Specify thumbnail size and square thumbnail in {rss... size=90 square=yes|no} tag to override system-wide defaults. Or if tag element left blank i.e. "ulimit=" then defaults to system default.
      5. Specify thumbnail border width in pixels
      6. Added special section in the code for Picasa so that viewing largest image (800px) could be possible.
      7. Added more verbiage to photofeed.xml to help with plugin usage.

      Future enhancements to do

      1. Recognize single and/or double quotes in {rss..} tag
      2. No order to tag elements - i.e. size=75 could come first in the {rss...} tag
      3. If tag element missing then just take default - at this time all tag elements must be in the tag to work
      4. Ability to choose size of image to view - now defaults to largest for Picasa.

      Testing: Note that I have tested these changes on Picasa only.&160; I believe it will work with the other photo sites as I made changes to their code for any enhancements I added.

    • photowidget

      I am really happy to deliver this new Joomla! module. It also now support RSS of

      • Gallery2,
      • Smugmug,
      • Flickr,
      • Picasa.

      I did document everything in the WIKI. I still respond to private emails but try now to always create new entries in the WIKI as it help more users.

      Enjoy!

      &160;

      This extension will also be available at Joomla extensions in the Category Photo Channels

      Roy Tanck's Flickr Widget requires Flash Player 9 or better.

    • logo_simplepie_horizontal feature_feed

      The module PhotoWidget has been totally rewritten using simplepie.org, a famous open source RSS parser, by the way Joomla!, Drupal, and a lot of open source projects use it natively.

      SimplePie is a very fast and easy-to-use class, written in PHP, that puts the 'simple' back into 'really simple syndication'. Flexible enough to suit beginners and veterans alike, SimplePie is focused on speed, ease of use, compatibility and standards compliance.

      Code is now:

      • Smaller,
      • Object oriented: it is funny how you always start to hack small project in php in a non object oriented way at the beginning :-)
      • More robust toward multiple RSS feeds.

      But it also contains some new interesting features! Below is an example of Photowidget ouput with a Smugmug RSS feed. Photowidget support: Picasa, Flickr, G2, and a lot of other RSS feeds.

      What’s new

      BUG:&160; by clicking on Smugmug/Picasa/Flickr thumbnail, it drive you to the correct gallery

      NEW: Code use SimplePie and no more my custom RSS parser, this mean more compatibility, speed, and quality of RSS parsing/caching.

      NEW: if you don’t like the flash output, you can now output pictures from an RSS feed in a full HTML badge manner. It will just fill the space you give in the module as seen below

      photowidgetSmugmugHTML

      NEW: Flickr thumbnail picture size can now be selected

      NEW: Picasa thumbnail picture size can now be selected

      photowidget-Picasa-Flickr.size

      NEW: You can copy this module&160; many times and use it at different places in your layout (before only one instances was able to run for each Joomla!) at the condition to use an unique id for each.
