There is more to say, but just to keep things short, Indexhibit v2.1 was just placed on the server. Download at the same old place.
What is it? Here is a quick recap of what's going on:
- updated to work with php7
- refresh of default theme (larger, clearer type)
- added mobile adaptive format
- added ability to use email for login
- added Slideshow format
- added plugin for changing max image size upload
- fixed password retrieval system
- fixed uploader (divs) issue
- fixed overlay
- fixed youtube plugin
- changed youtube.gif to yt.gif very weird chrome bug
- updated/changed default thumbnail sizes
- updated/changed default image sizes
- https ready
- removed annoying sleep functions (sorry)
The biggest things on the list would be that it works on PHP7, addition of a mobile theme and jiggering of the login system.
The mobile theme works in addition to whatever theme you are using. Simply enable it in Admin > Plugins and it will work. This is not a responsive theme - it will only work on your phone and uses a particular exhibit format (Mobile) for display. You can edit each of them separately.
The login system has always been a pain. It worked and then didn't work and then it worked again and it worked on some servers and then it didn't. I took it apart, found a good helper library to help and it seems good now. There will still be some servers where for security reasons it will not work - this is where the Password Reset Script (found in Plugins on our site) is still relevant. Let's hope this works even 75% of the time now because I get alot of email about this unfortunately.
I'm trying to put together a set of files for updating existing Indexhibit sites - give me a day to put this together. If you find any issues please email support [at] indexhibit [dot] org. I'll try to do what I can to help.
I have years worth of material sitting around in various folders - and I keep discovering more. I'm probably going to slowly start releasing them via my own website since all of this is supposed to be fun for me to do - not everything I do is specifically for Indexhibit. I'll post more about this when I'm ready to play.
PS: Special thanks to Paul Schreiber and Lukasz Mordawski for helping out with the PHP7 update.
