I’ve just rolled out a new version of the software that powers my photo albums. The only external change is a modification of the breadcrumbs when viewing an individual image. Instead of the image file name, you will now see a ‘X of Y’ progress indicator. This should make it a little clearer where you are in the album, and removes unimportant information from the breadcrumb list. Page titles for individual image pages have likewise been updated, making back history a little clearer.
One of the largest back end changes in this release is the ability to reorder album images. Previously, album images relied on their file name for sorting purposes. Albums now default to this when uploading, but the order can be changed after the fact. I plan on making some changes to at least one of my old albums using this new functionality.
I hope to offer a behind-the-scenes look at my photo album software in the coming days. Lots of updates have been made to the admin panel, and I’d like to share what I’ve learned. Stay tuned!
