Maintenance Updates, PhotoQ 1.6.3 and iQ2 1.0.4

Here it finally is, the long-awaited update of Photoq. PhotoQ 1.6.3 should make the nasty bugs with WordPress 2.7.1 and disappearing photo data a thing of the past. Sorry to all of you who have been waiting for this for a long time and thanks to Andrew Bird and Arclight for reporting the bug. Usually, I am quicker with updates but this time I just had too many things going on at work and I couldn’t take care of this earlier.

Here is the complete list of changes for PhotoQ 1.6.3:

  • Makes PhotoQ compatible with WordPress 2.7.1.
  • PhotoQ should now also work on IIS Servers.
  • Large parts of the option handling were refactored.
  • PHP4 object handling was refactored.

At the same time I also made a small compatibility update to iQ2. If you use PhotoQ and iQ2, please update both.

    well i wouldn’t put it that way. yes they changed sth from 2.7 to 2.7.1. but the bug still was because of me programming sloppy. i just got lucky until 2.7.1. so if you need to yell at someone… :-)

    Hi, I am having a problem with the plugin. It does exactly what I want it to do (makes a thumbnail, resizes the main image, links the thumbnail to the main image with lightbox rel) but every time I type something under the image in the edit post screen, then hit save, the text I type disappears. I have tried typing in the excerpt too. Do you know why this is? It’s very frustrating. THank you!

    i guess you are talking about photos that were already posted? if so, right now the way you edit information on an already posted photo depends on your settings. if you have the inline description checkbox checked (not true in your case if i interpret your comment correctly) you can change it it directly in the edit post screen. if you do not inline the description, you can only edit it in the photoQDescr custom field. so in your case if you update the custom field it should work.

    i know this whole thing is suboptimal right now and that is exactly why this is the second item on my to do list. so this should get changed and made simpler in the near future.
