I have just released a test candidate of the GL Native Forum plugin version 2.5. This is the same code that I have been running on my site www.portalparts.com for the past 6 months or so. It's a completely re-vamped look and feel using CSS based buttons instead of images for a cleaner look but also should be a lot easlier to theme for different color schemes.

This is a release for testing so don't use it on a live site unless you are comfortable and able to restore or back out the changes. I've used it for months on my site but there can stll be many conditions that I have still not received enough testing. I will release another version once it has completed sufficient testing. Please post your feedback on my site or here in the plugins support forum.

Besides the change in the look, this version was a major rewrite of the core plugin and added many new features. For a summary of the new features - read on:

Plugins I have just released a new version of GUS, which brings with it some significant improvements.

For those of you unfamilar with GUS, it collects statistics on who visits your site, which browser and operating system they are using, which pages they view, and which links they are clicking to get there.

This information is useful for monitoring your site for abuse [which you can take care directly if you have the ban plugin installed] and to see how frequently different parts of your site are being used.

Here are the [slightly] shortened release notes for version 1.4:

Inmemoriam Media Gallery

The beta release of the Inmemoriam Media Gallery for Geeklog 1.3.11 is now available for public use. I'm calling this a beta release simply because it may not be 100% free of defects. Find it in the Geeklog download section or at SummitPages.ca.

I'm sure you've realized by now what Inmemoriam is--a media gallery plug-in designed specifically to run inside of Geeklog making use of Geeklog's user database as well as many of its core functions. Inmemoriam Media Gallery for Geeklog was inspired by a combination of factors not the least of which are both Geeklog's need for an integrated gallery solution designed with Geeklog in mind, and my personal preference for something other than the current mainstream options. My name is Alford, and I hope you enjoy using Inmemoriam as much as I've enjoyed developing it. Does that ever sound like a commercial :P

Some features include: media stored outside of the webroot, watermarking, my favorites album, backup utility, permissions system based on Geeklog's own, etc. A full list of features and special features can be found in the usage doc included in the package. For screenshots of the gallery visit SummitPages.ca.

The GD graphics library is required for this beta release. Future releases will (hopefully) support NetPBM and ImageMagick. Read the install instructions carefully. If you have installation issues, bug reports, or any other relevant issues or comments, please post them in Geeklog's plugin help forum.
