Shashin 2.0 – Highslide and Album Displays
Shashin 2.0 is now available. I jumped the version number to 2.0 because this release includes a couple major new features. One is that Shashin is now bundled with Highslide. It was a fun challenge getting WordPress to play nicely with Highslide for displaying any combination of photos in a post, and then any combination of posts on a page. The other major new feature is linking album thumbnails to a local display of the album’s photos, so you can show them on your site instead of having to go to Picasa.
There are minor new features too: a new tag that lets you display sets of album thumbnails alongside their titles and descriptions, an option to prefix album titles to photo captions, and if you choose not to use Highslide, you can open the links to Picasa in a new window if you want.
All the details, including instructions for using the new features, are on my Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "shashin-wordpress-plugin".
