Minor enhancements? I think the changes with akismet, piclens, backup, user interface and so on are top! Also an important sign that gallery2 is alive :-)

no hassle upgraded to 2.3.1

I still prefer Lytebox slideshow over the Piclen. Piclen ate up my memory so quickly.
Though, the new default setting of lytebox is taking too long from dim to fully display, making it virutually useless. I have to restore the previously one from Suprsidr (version 0.95). Sorry for saying this.

Another issue that I have about loading photos (from Local Server) still failing when the folder contain non-english characters. (logged to the tracker for long time)

Not on PHP 5.3, unable to comment on this.

Gallery 2 is still my favorite online album.

Great news!

Super! Thanks! I prefer this version than v3 ;)

After I upgrade to 2.3.1, on my comments I find thousand of spam messages from visitors (Capcha is set to High on user visitors). Before with 2.3.0 I don't have any spam message (or the spam was very very rarely) on comments, anyone have the same problem?
How can I resolve it? For now I've disable "Add Comments" to Visitor user
Thanks a lot

I've resolve all my spam problems after installing the Recaptcha module for Gallery 2.X (see this site:

Completely painless upgrade from 2.3.0 to 2.3.1.

Thank you for the continued effort.



Yeah, spam is a very serious issue for gallery, at least gallery 2.x. Broke my database several times, captcha and even askimet seems not helpful at all. The only thing which helped for me in the past is blocking anonymous comments completely. Thx for pointing to recaptcha, will try this right now.

I can do that.... "2009-12-26-Groovetown fête Noël!" here

You should probably ask for support in the forums...
