New Development Release: Qdig 20040417

Qdig just got quicker! This release adds an link on the image display page that allows you to go directly to a caption-editing page for the image.

From the Release Notes page for this release:


Notes:

This release includes an important new feature: the ability to edit an image's caption by clicking a link the image's page.

The Admin link appears next to the copyright text, or in its place if there's no copyright text. When you click the link, it takes you directly to the caption-edit screen for that image. When you save the caption, it takes you back to the image display page.

The admin link only appears on image-display pages. You can zip back and forth from you Qdig gallery to admin.php and fill you galleries with captions very quickly and easily.

Once the new code has been tested and tweaked, this will be released as a stable version. You can consider this "Qdig 1.2 beta".

The admin script just got more important.

It appears that it will be impossible to abandon the admin.php script, which is what I expected to happen. As a matter of fact its very much the opposite. For this reason, it was combed over (again) and the code was incrementally improved. Hundreds of lines of code were affected, by this because lots of double-quotes were replaced with single-quotes.

Changes:

Added a link on a page to its corresponding admin.php caption-edit page.
Refined the Admin (caption-edit) link code.
Adapted admin.php so it returns to the image display page.
Code cleanup of admin.php (single-qoutes to double-quotes, etc).

See CHANGELOG.txt for a complete list of changes.
