PiwigoPress for WordPress 2.9 and above

I have finally found the time to fix some annoying bugs when using PiwigoPress on WordPress 3.9 (and above). In addition, I have added some features I wanted to have.



  • fix for Piwigo 2.6 version (from the forum)
  • fix for tinyMCE v4 integration (javascript code updated)
    “generate and insert” was broken and only inserted the first image


The improvements are all targeting encryption of all sources. One problem is that t the moment, when using PiwigoPress, javascript code, css code are loaded via http:// in any case.

The other problem is that the URL for the piwigo server cannot be specified without a protocol and server, in case the piwigo server is on the same host. Now in my case I have the blog in server/blog and the piwigo in server/piwigo, and I would like PiwigoPress to use /piwigo as url and have the proper (currently used) http/https added automatically.

Both of these things have been fixed in the code, that means, that one can now have the full communication encrypted.

The patch is against the lastest version of PiwigoPress, 2.23, and is available at http://www.preining.info/software/piwigopress.diff

Update 2015: I have taken over the maintenance of PiwigoPress, so all the changes are in the official release. Development is now done on github, project piwigopress.

The changes I made are also available via the gitorious project wp-piwigo, see here: https://gitorious.org/wp-piwigo/wp-piwigo/
