Important update notice

After updating WPPA+ Remember the following:

  • If you have a server side caching program like WP Supercache or W3 Total cache, clear the cache!!
  • If you have any other speeding up plugin installed, clear / reset / re-initialize it!!
  • If, after an update, all links from albums or photos do not seem to work anymore but just reload the page, set the permalink structure on the wp Settings -> Permalinks to Default. Verify that it works again and set the permalink structure back to what you want. Be carefull with the Custom Structure!.
  • If the Settings page stayes blank and you have w3 Total cache installed, de-activate w3 Total cache (temporary). There have been reports where it blocked the options database table

The permalink has the following structure: http://www.mysite.com/wp-content/wppa-pl/My-album/My-photo.jpg. My-album stands for the wppa+ album name, My-photo.jpg for the name of the photo. You can change the name wppa-pl into any convenient filesystem safe name like ‘albums’ in Table IX-H14: Permalink root. Make sure you choose a unique name inside …/wp-content/ for the permalink root. There is no hierarchical album structure, and it is your responsability to have no duplicate album names, and no duplicate photo names inside the same album.

Other Changes
