This is the second BETA; other than vB4 support, the features are the same from the BETA 1 release (primarily SEO URLs and some minor interface changes).

vB4 support: We're still new to this like most of you, so Chuck and I are working to understand the new template and style changes. We've had to create a new set of templates (templates/vb4enhanced) to work with the new layouts.

We have the SEO URLs running on the following sites:

A Harley Davidson photo sharing community - Harley Alley (http://www.harleyalley.com)
Extreme Fitness bodybuilding photo gallery - ExtremeFitness Photo Galleries (http://www.extremefitness.com/gallery)
A community photo gallery - ReefTalk Gallery (http://www.reeftalk.com/gallery)

Disclaimer/Word of Caution: As with any upgrade, particularly a BETA one, please backup your systems before performing the upgrade. Novice users should be extreme caution, as if you encounter problems we will need to ask you questions about your setup to try and resolve any issues (and may ask you to modify code or your setup). If you are unsure about doing these things, you should not install or use this BETA update. Support for the BETA product will expire with each new update and not be supported at all past the BETA cycle.


PhotoPost 7.0 is a major update with new new features our users have requested.

New features:

. SEO URLs (requires .htaccess file)
. Single URLs for images
. 301 redirects to SEO pages for spider and normal URLs
. SEO URLs enabled in Admin -> Edit Settings -> Global Options (choices are none, spider, seo)
. vB4 support
. Multimedia thumbnails (requires ffmpeg, not included)
. Includes thumbnail rebuilds (path the ffmpeg set in Admin -> Edit Settings -> Global Options)
. Updated Gallery and Photo pages

New file

.htaccess (only required if you are planning on using SEO URLs)

Upgraded files

/*.php (except config-inc.php.NEW, config-int.php.NEW, inc_features.php, inc_photopost.php)

forums/photopost.php (you only need this file if you are using the internal registration system)

languages/*.php (you only need the file that corresponds to your language)

templates/vb4enhanced/* (new directory)

js/* (all files)


You will need to run the upgrade.php script after updating your files and upgrade to the 7.0 version.

If you have 7.0 BETA 1 running, there is no upgrade.php script requirements, you only need to upload the files and templates.
