I have just rolled out a brand new version of my Monkey Album software, which powers the photo albums here at this site. There are a number of great improvements in this release:
- Photo Album Collections are a new way to browse my photos. Related photo albums are now grouped, allowing visitors to easily view albums with similar content. Note that not all photo albums are a part of a collection, so the raw album listing is still the default view.
- Individual photo albums can now be navigated with the keyboard. The right arrow key will take you to the next photo, while the left arrow key will take you back to the previous photo.
- Photo album thumbnails are no longer paged. Each photo album now appears on a single page.
- The comment form has been turned off for now, as has the comments RSS feed. This was a feature not being used, so I’ve disabled it. It may or may not return in the future.
The styles for Monkey Album have changed, so be sure to force a refresh in your browser (Ctrl + F5) if things look broken to you. If you spot a legitimate problem, or if you have a general comment or suggestion, please let me know by leaving a comment here.
