Release notes

Major Changes

  • #977 move the cache folder for local images to /images/eventgallery_generated. This will prevent deleting the thumbnail cache if you install a Joomla update. If you changed the the folder already using the constants COM_EVENTGALLERY_IMAGE_CACHE_PATH and COM_EVENTGALLERY_IMAGE_CACHE_WEB_PATH, you are not affected by this change. Please double check if your images load properly. If you configured the dynamic image generation (default setting), there is no need to worry. If you pregenerate your images, make sure they are completely generated.
  • #974 changes the ALT attributes of images to show the image title first. Also, the HTML title of a single image page changes in the same way.
  • #975 allow new elements in cart connector link pattern: ${categoryId},${categorySlug} and ${categoryTitle}

Minor Changes

  • #972 refactored the template for the singleimage view to allow customization of the title/description section without the need to overwrite the whole template.
  • #974 changes the ALT attributes of images to show the image title first. Also, the HTML title of a single image page changes in the same way.
  • #975 allow new elements in cart connector link pattern: ${categoryId},${categorySlug} and ${categoryTitle}
  • #981 for new tables, the row format is not set to dynamic to work around some install issues on MariaDB 10.5 (https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/issues/34847)

Bug Fixes

  • #963 Joomla 4 // Image Type Set for an image is no longer mandatory
  • #964 Joomla 4 // Watermark for an image type is no longer mandatory.
  • #965 Joomla 4 // publish_down for a folder is no longer mandatory.
  • #966 Joomla 4 // improved layout of an order in the backend.
  • #969 Download links did not use HTTPS protocol. Not they use the protocol which was used to call the webpage.
  • #970 Access to AWS S3 buckets failed because of the usage of the wrong API endpoint. Might have worked with global unique bucket names.
  • #956 There was a left over in the table eventgallery_file. The column allowcomments will be deleted automatically now.
  • #968 It is possible to manipulate the URL so you can see an event below every category. This has a SEO impact since it makes moving an Event from one category to another impossible. Search engines would crawl the old and the new URL. This is fixed.
  • #973 Prevent JavaScript exceptions cause trouble in the modal and the add2cart dialog.
  • #979 fixes the Google Albums selector for Joomla 4. It will open now if you click the button.
  • #980 iOS and Safari had an issue opening the sharing and the add2cart dialog while the lightbox is running.

Major Changes

  • #900 Allow default values in the image selection dialog for the content plugin. Check the component options for the available configuration values.
  • #906 It is now finally possible to hide the subcategories headline with a simple option instead of custom CSS.

  • #911 updated PEL library to read/write EXIF data.

Bug fixes

  • #854 Joomla 4 // fixes the slider on the blog layout. Before the fix, the slider expanded the page with and broke the layout. Thumbnails use the Bootstrap 4 img-thumbnail class. The cart and checkout forms support the Bootstrap 4 classes.
