CPG 1.5.3 Released – The future is bright.

Introducing the Coppermine 1.5.3 Release Candidate

It is with great joy that we present Coppermine 1.5.3 [RC]. After over 2 years of work and thousands of lines of code we now have a superb and feature packed product. It has been a long and challenging journey but with the help of you, the community, and our team of dedicated supporters and developers we are almost there.

What does this mean and why a release candidate?

With so many changes the Coppermine team decided that going straight to a stable release might be a step too far. We want to have a wider user base to test both the code and usability. Along with that we would also like to have more language options available for the stable release. However, we do feel the code is now in a very stable and secure state. While we don’t recommend you use it on a live site the good news is

that we can now provide support to you all. In return we request that you help us to help you by providing all the information you can when requesting support.

How can I be part of the stable release?


The most important thing you can do is help us test the software. Download a copy of Coppermine 1.5.3 and install it somewhere to test it. Explore every facet of the software looking for anything that does not work as it should. If you find something that needs fixing then file a bug report but please review the documentation first.


Almost as important as testing the software is to make sure people understand how to use it. While ease of usability has been high on the priority list it is always important to have good documentation. The new documentation for Coppermine 1.5.x has had a major overhaul and we feel is the best yet. Having said that there is always room for improvement. Over the years we often get people with little or no technical knowledge wanting to help and the docs are one area that everyone can be involved in. So have a read through and if you feel something is lacking or incorrect then tell us. Better still, work on that section and contribute it to the community. Only with your help can we continue to improve.


As previously mentioned we would like to see the stable release include support for as many different languages as possible. Again, the community has stepped up to the mark providing a number of language files but we would love to see many more. This not only goes for the language files but the docs too. If you are good at translation then the core language files can be done in just a couple of hours. The new docs are very extensive and do require a lot more work. Don’t be put off by this. Instead just do as much as you can contributing your work to the community via the forum as you go. Hopefully others can then build on your work and we can advance towards our goals as a team.

There is a new translation guide that ships with cpg1.5.x that is mandatory to read for potential translators as well as the translation announcement thread “[Help wanted]: Translations for CPG1.5.x“.

What’s new in CPG 1.5.x

New core theme

Providing many years of faithful service the old classic theme was beginning to show its age so the Coppermine team decided to lay it to rest. After many hours of work we are proud to introduce the new Curve theme. One of the things that made the old classic theme so great was that it was easy to modify to your needs and the new Curve theme is no exception. With a stunning new look based on the theme of the same name from SMF along with a new CSS based drop down menu system you will find this the most usable yet.

Along with the classic theme a number of older themes have been removed from the core download but continue to be available separately. Full details can be found here along with other users contributed themes

All new upload interface

To improve the user experience it is now even easier than ever to upload images to Coppermine thanks to a new upload interface. Utilizing the excellent and popular open source tool, SWF Upload no longer is the user limited to just uploading a few images at a time. With a great drag and drop interface and progress bar the process has been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

The only drawback is that the user requires flash and java-script to be enabled on his browser. For those very rare few that do not meet these minimum specs all is not lost as the single file upload interface remains.

Improved usability

By far the largest request from the community was to improve usability and thanks to the community we feel we have done just that. Below are a list of just a few things that are making CPG1.5 such a pleasure to use.

  • Built in Captcha engine
  • Built in Watermark engine
  • New Upload Interface
  • Improved Groups control
  • Improved Category Management tool
  • Drag and drop sorting of albums
  • Improved Search engineNew core ‘Curve’ theme
  • Improved image tagging
  • Enhanced plugin engine

The list goes on. Download and have a play, you will not be disappointed.

Better security

As every web administrator knows, we are always at risk of being hacked by those intent on destroying our work. Constant maintenance and regular updates are the key but the Coppermine team have gone one step further.

As well as good programming we have included Inspekt in every bit of code. Inspekt acts as a firewall between the user and your server increasing its fortification leaving the potential hacker no choice but

    coppermine gallery is resizing all pictures to a more internet friendly size.

    Over the period of time I have found ImageMagick to be very useful when it comes to manipulating images. Below are the commands commonly used for resizing images.

    To resize all images in current directory to 800 width (height will be reduced proportionately) :

    mogrify -resize 800 *.jpg

    Resize all images to 800 height (width will be reduced proportionately)

    mogrify -resize x800 *.jpg

    Resize all images to a maximum dimension of 800×800. This means that max of width and height will be considered while resizing :

    mogrify -resize 800×800 *.jpg

    Reduce the size of images to the percent of original :

    mogrify -resize 75% *.jpg

    Note that in all above commands the original file will be replaced with the new one. Also the examples given above uses only jpg files but you can surely do it with other image formats as well.

    CPG and Me

    Many moons ago I decided to set up a website. I had never ventured into the wonderful world that is web design before and was very wet behind the ears. I am a network support guy (read geek) and have some programming experience but that doesn’t help in the slightest when it comes to web design.

    One of the first things I wanted to do was to build up a big collection of windsurfing pictures so spent ages trying various softwares to do this. Some were offline packages that create the album for you to upload, these were quickly ruled out as I wanted my users to be able to upload. Then there were the packages my web host at the time offered, all next to useless. Finally and by a bit of luck I came across Coppermine. It really floated my boat and had all the features I wanted then some. Continue reading ‘CPG and Me’

    Never argue

    I came across with this quote today and instantly thought of coppermine forums.

    Never argue with an idiot. They pull you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

    There is no dearth of such morons on coppermine forums.

    Recently I have seen many users criticizing support team of being rude and un-friendly. They claim that we should answer their each and every question (which we do unless the question has already been asked many times) as they

    All new upload interface

    Continuing the series to highlight the new exciting features of cpg15x, today lets take a look at all new upload interface. The new interface uses the popular open source tool SwfUpload which uses flash to upload files. The great thing about this tool is that it shows file upload progress

    As you can see multiple files can be selected and uploaded in one single go.

The only gotcha with this new interface is that it requires flash and javascript but in todays time if your browser don’t have those two things then you are still living in 20th century ;) .

    Creating plugins was never this easy

    While I have been working on CPG 1.5, I recently started recoding some plugins and writing new ones. One of the major things that have been coded is the addition of quite a lot plugin hooks. While sometimes it is easier to create a mod (modifying the core code) then a plugin (no changes needed in the core), it does pay to create the plugin. It is easier to maintain and certainly easier to support. Plugins are portable when doing an upgrade, while modifications have to be applied everytime.

    It is possible to convert every mod to a plugin in the 1.4 series,

    Skeptical it gel. Years healthcare of canada pharmacy lasting Hydrating. Reviews buy cialis online Boucheron stylist workouts to.

    but it certainly was not always efficient. You could/can use the ‘page_html’ filter to change every aspect of Coppermine if you want to, but it would be quite resource intensive. Now with the additional hooks I was able to create a plugin to add an alternate CAPTCHA then the default one built in. I was also able to convert my lightbox

    mod to a plugin with the addition of an administration menu, no need to edit the files anymore!

    It would be nice to see people convert their mods to plugins as it is more likely they will work on future versions of the 1.5 branch and possibly even after that.
    I think over 90% of the mods currently available are convertable without to much hassle. It does take some time to get used to the plugin API, but there are enough plugins available to peek at their code and see how it works. The 1.5 plugin documentation is currently being improved, and I will add all my plugins in there with detailed info on how I wrote them.
