New feature: photostream in release 2.8

The new release Tiny Marbles CMS 2.8 is available. The release 2.8 comes with a new feature: the photostream. Here in a nutshell how the new photostream works:

  • Images in the image library can be tagged with public tags and keywords.
  • A new type of 'Article category' is available: 'Photostream'.
  • The photostream can be placed anywhere in the public navigation bar.
  • All images with public tags appear in the photostream, ordered by date and by ID.
  • On the right side of the photostream the stream can be filtered by public tags
  • The stream provides endless scrolling up to 600 thumbnails (140px * 140px), then a link to the next page appears
  • Each image provides a title, a caption, a description (based on the HTML editor) and keywords.

On the Tiny Marbles CMS website you can check out the photostream. In this particular example the stream only provides 35 images, so the endless scrolling doesn't appear, and the fullsize mode only shows the screen shots, so maybe for a big monitor the fullsize screen will not fill out the complete screen.

Another working example of the photostream with endless scrolling and 'real' fullsize mode you can find on my photoblog.

Next release will probably be published end of July 2012. The new release will come with a new article type: 'Extended article', and a new layout theme called 'Flexible layout 2'. And of course with some improvements and bug fixing.
