This is a thread to announce/discuss the newest features in the photo gallery (now located at images.cosplay.com) New features are in bold, the rest are just improvements.

- Video Uploads. Support for multimedia files. When the script detects the upload is a multimedia file, it will prompt the user for a thumbnail to be uploaded or use a default image.
- New Help system. Popup windows with help topics.
- New Comments/Photos indicator - for users who are logged in, the arrow for comments and posts will glow when new items have been posted since last visit to the category.
- My Favorites. Users will have the ability to "tag" images for their own "My Favorites" feature. Viewing My Favorites shows the tagged images in a gallery format.
- Edit Photo now displays a thumbnail of the image being edited.
- Added Sort options: Random, Least Popular (by views), Most Popular (by views) and added number of views to prop up popular images in Most Popular (by rating).
- Hyphens are now allowed in filenames.
- Search now searches the filename in addition to the other fields

If anyone notices any bugs please let me know.

I found a bug where it doesn't allow users to post comments without rating the photo. I emailed the guy who wrote the script and hopefully will have a fix shortly.

I just changed something, tried one and it worked . . . could you try again for me plz? If it doesn't work again then it's probably a usergroup issue or something and I'll look further.

I miss the "Most popular" and "Random" features the gallery used to offer... are they gone permanently?

This problem has been fixed and comments are now working again without having to rate the photo.

I'm not sure I'm seeing the same thing, I have both of those in the dropdown box . . . is it not showing up in a specific section?

Silly me they used to be displayed in boxed under your gallery before and I wondered why they were gone. ^____^ I didn't notice them in the drop-down!
