The first pre-release for MoreGallery 1.16 is now available. This release includes a new image selector feature, sponsored by Catch Media, as well as some bug fixes.
MoreGallery 1.16 is available only for MODX3. For MODX 2.x, you'll need to keep using v1.14. v1.14 will continue to get security and bug fixes where appropriate, but no new features.
The Image Selector feature is a custom template variable and ContentBlocks input type that lets you search and select images from your galleries. This makes it possible to, for example, maintain an assets library of sorts with images, videos, or PDFs you want to reuse elsewhere.
Both the TV and ContentBlocks input type return the image IDs as value, which you can pass to the new &images property on the mgGetImages snippet to render them any way you'd like.
This release also includes the following bug fixes:
- Fix importing images in MODX 3 from non-root media sources. [#247]
- Fix exif_read_data() error being logged on image upload [#253]
- Fix cropping not working properly on newly uploaded images [#248]
- Fix media source dropdown not listing media sources, logging modMediaSource errors [#243]
Have a great day!
