XenForo Media Gallery 1.1.6(a) Released

XenForo Media Gallery 1.1.6 is a maintenance release for our media gallery add-on. We recommend all customers running XenForo Media Gallery to upgrade to 1.1.6 to benefit from increased stability.

This release fixes several bugs that were reported following the release of XenForo Media Gallery 1.1.5:
  • Added a new option to control the thumbnail quality of JPG thumbnails.
  • Added a new unsharp mask filter to the thumbnail process to make thumbnails appear sharper.
  • The cached thumbnail URL is no longer used for album thumbnails therefore changes made to the XF data directory take effect immediately.
  • Prevented a situation where a video embed could be updated to an invalid URL.
  • Improved some of the custom field display styling on the media view.
  • Implemented spam checking on Gallery comments. Gallery comments are therefore now checked against Spam Phrases and Akismet (where enabled).
  • Prevent a 'Serialized value contains an object and this is not allowed' error when a moderator performs actions on some album related content.
  • Fixed missing rating count icon on thumbnails in "New Media"
  • Workaround for an 'Uncaught TypeError' in the Gallery lightbox when a media title comprises only of numbers.

For the full list of bug fixes, see the Resolved Media Gallery Bugs forum.

The following templates have had changes:
  • xengallery_album_custom_order.css
  • xengallery_media_field_group
  • xengallery_media_thumb_item.css
  • xengallery_media_view
  • xengallery_media_view.css
Where necessary, the merge system within the "Outdated Templates" page should be used to integrate these changes.

Installation, Upgrading and Configuration

Please see our XenForo Media Gallery manual page for more information.
We have discovered an issue in XenForo Media Gallery 1.1.6 that can cause FFmpeg video transcoding to fail. As such, we have updated XenForo Media Gallery version to 1.1.6a to incorporate this fix.

If you downloaded 1.1.6a from the customer area, you do not need to take any steps. If you are running a version prior to 1.1.6, you can continue using your current version or upgrade to 1.1.6a using the standard methods. If you are not using FFmpeg to transcode videos uploaded to your gallery, you can safely ignore this issue.

If you are affected, you can take one of several approaches to resolve this bug:
  1. Download 1.1.6a from the customer area and replace library/XenGallery/Helper/Video.php with the new version from the download.
  2. Manually patch the issue with the instructions here: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/video-uploads-fail-to-transcode.114749/
Please note that the version will still display as 1.1.6 in your control panel.
