I've been working on it since I installed my own Symbiostock site. Thanks to Leo for that great stuff.

It's a 2 in one hybrid plugin with a theme functionality to keep things ISOLATED,  EASY to use and maintain, and SECURE.

While updating / instaling or making any changes disable or configure properly the caching plugins, they won't allow to see changes made. You can enable them back later

That is looking really good - I especially like the square pictures in the box that expand as you put the mouse over them, they look good in the boxes, very neat

I've requested a search xml / csv file that leo or ajt is going to add

              Type of search (1= normal network, 2=promoted,)
   search string used
   url of current site
   url of network site X
   # images returned from networked site X
   time elapsed  (help test new search algorithms)
   date/time of search   

this would be stored like the current image & keyword xmls and anyone can then use the info

OT question: I can't see any image prices on your pictures  :P

Do I have to register to see the prices or do you only offer your images at the agencies and not on Symbiostock  :o ??

@Tinny & @Redneck, glad you like it, it'll be even better

@cascoly cool, although I don't use all the data yet, need to make the base features bulletproof which takes a lot of time

@click_click I'd love to enable Paypal, can't wait for my first sales from Symbio, but  English language is not my first, so before I edit all the EULAs and other info I decided to work on the site & plugin. Referral module with links to agencies is my test to check the SEO abilities of Symbiostock Theme

As I said Leo, you'll be the first to download. The file is not yet online. I know you thought I was only joking ;)

Yet before I wanted to put some news for the future users, to get them familiar with other development directions and features. Now I'm back to working hard to get it done in max. 2 days

Looks like some interesting features.

I did notice however when on an Image Page when I click on the large image it jumps to the bottom of the screen.
Mac OSX 10.8.1 and Safari

I tried to take a screen shot but it jumps right back if I move the cursor or touch the keyboard.
This is shot with my camera so you could see what happens
Doesn''t do it when I use FireFox.

Thanks Steve for the screenshot, You're right, it's funny.. well it supposed to be a feature.  Created for some smaller screen resolutions to allow the image zoom to a larger size, mostly for panoramic images or landscape sized.
 
Except Windows I tested it on Safari and Chrome on iPad and an Android smartphone. Simple math, but some differences make it acts weird, thus It will  probably be moved to the experimental features until fixed

Will this work with Clean Theme 2?


« Reply #20 on: July 25, 2013, 19:27 »

It will work with any theme, main or child.
For the Clean 2 you should probably disable the CSS options in SYXtra Settings panel.

Some widgets may be moved from sidebars because plugin adds own sidebars.

Here is info about missing widgets, easy to get them back, typical WP issue

Here is "What SYXtra does & does not do"

Just play with it it's very easy, and help is already  available on site.

I have taken a very brief look and here are a few comments:

- The thumbnails widget setup spells "comma" incorrectly (it has "coma", which means to be unconscious for an extended period of time).  This misspelling is also on the Thumbnails Widget Help page on your website (http://stock.imagerion.com/syxtra/thumbnails-widget-help/).

- I took a look at the code for setting page views.  I could be wrong, but it seems that you don't filter out views by the Administrator.  If that is true, then I would check the user type and increment the view counter only if the user was a Subscriber (since this is the user type that customers that register are set to).  This way, views will only be incremented for real customers.

Thanks for all of your hard work.

I like the images view counter, I agree with ShazamImages suggestion, don't include admin view in counter.
