I’m testing a version 1.6 Coppermine photo gallery

My existing photo galleries use the latest 1.5 version, but 1.6 is newer and supposedly stable and tested but still classed as pre-release. So I thought I ought to give it a try and see if there are any problems for me with the plugins I use.


I’ve added some test galleries, including a set of recent train photos, which link to a video – to see how it all looks.

It is very similar to the exiting galleries in appearance at the moment, but one of the plugins isn’t available for 1.6 yet – but there is a very good slideshow plugin.

A mobile using Firefox browser has problems, but not with Chrome. Maybe there will be a fix for that soon.

As I get more used to it or make further adjustments or updates, I will add further posts here.
