Description

IMPORTANT: BEFORE any skin update save the current album! AFTER a skin update you'll have to reopen the current album or reload the skin with CTRL-L before "Make" in order the new version loaded completely. Also make sure to reprocess all the subfolders: read the "NEW SKIN VERSIONS" paragraph below!

TURTLE is an HTML5 / CSS3 dynamic album template with transition effects, slideshow, map, shopping cart, videos, background music, full site navigation and many more. Works on touch devices too. Has 27 separate styles plus tons of customization options.

There are 2 basic operation modes for Turtle: "Single page" and "Separate slide page" mode. Use the "Settings / Pages / Make slides" to select.

In SINGLE PAGE MODE all the images are placed on the same html page, and the skin replaces them dynamically as you navigate through the album. In this mode you can have continuous background music, smooth transition effects, and lower server load.

In the SEPARATE SLIDE PAGES MODE your album will show every image on a separate html page, which enables Facebook or other social sites to Like, comment and share the images separately and search engines can find your photos easier as well. It will not allow as smooth transitions as single, no background music and results in almost doubled server load.

If you plan to add MORE THAN 500 photos in a single folder I'd suggest to use the separate slide pages mode to avoid memory leak with less robustly written browsers.

About the two modes please refer to: http://lazaworx.com/dynamic-vs-multi-page-albums/

You can add CUSTOM PAGES too: right-click -> New page -> Empty or from template: About, Contact, Sitemap.

To choose the HEADER IMAGE (a.k.a theme image) use the right-click -> "Use as folder thumbnail" menu. You can exlude this photo from the album at the same time with right-click -> "Exlcude".

NEW SKIN VERSIONS are not guaranteed to be backwards compatible with older versions, thus after a skin upgrade you'll need to regenerate the whole album with "Settings / Advanced / Process subdirectories" = ON and "Process only updated subdirectories" = OFF! This will not reprocess all the JPG's, only the HTML pages, which is a lot faster, particularly in single page mode.

SEARCH feature also needs reprocessing all the subfolders (see above!) every time.

In order the FACEBOOK LIKE, share, comment and similar social functions work properly you need to specify the Upload Path in "Settings / Turtle / Advanced / Upload path" before album Make as absolute URL to album base. (Normally you can upload the album to any site after the album is made but these sites require this information within the album, which can't be changed later.) Turtle can also sniff out the proper upload path, but only after the album has been uploaded once.

Your comments are welcome - write a comment on the right, but PLEASE POST BUG REPORTS, feature requests IN THE TURTLE FORUM, see below.

Thanks,
Laza

- On iOS 7 clicking a link near the top might activate the top bar instead of the link. Turn off "Stick control to top" to get better user experience on small screen iOS7 devices.
- Google Chrome reports the attribute required for iOS7 'minimal-ui' as an error. No other consequences though.

Being this a major release with lots of modifications, I suggest you to test the local version thoroughly before uploading.

- Devices with touch support (surface) don't allow mouse events on desktop devices
- IE10 & 11 touch actions on mobile devices (scroll and swipe)
- Error when "Show image count" on folders is off
- Disabled editing of forms added in the footer with custom scroll
- "Start over" option is unnecessary with only one image present
- "New" label is missing from slide page thumb strip thumbnails

Known bugs:
- Safari (and other browsers) on iOS 7 hangs often due to a memory management bug in iOS 7. The bug is fixed in the upcoming iOS 7.1.
- The top and bottom browser bars can't be removed in iOS 7.0 with small screens. The user experience is slightly better on iOS 7.1 where Turtle can hide the bars - they still might pop up every now and then.
- On iOS 7 clicking a link near the top might activate the top bar instead of the link. Turn off "Stick control to top" to get better user experience on small screen iOS7 devices.
- Google Chrome reports the attribute required for iOS7 'minimal-ui' as an error. No other consequences though.

Being this a major release with lots of modifications, I suggest you to test the local version thoroughly before uploading.

- Facebook commenting not work or pulls in comments from other people if Upload path is missing from the Turtle / Advanced page

Note:
- The "Show map if GPS coordinates found" setting has changed to include the index page option too, therefore if you open an album made previously you need to reselect this option, otherwise no map will be generated
- Version 4.0.0 was the testing version, this is why I bumped up the version number
- Even though Facebook commenting might start without providing the exact "Upload path", it will launch in limited "compatibility" mode

3.5.4 02-10-2012

New feature:
- Control bar does not disappear with "Auto-hide control bar" = OFF

Fixed:
- Empty share box below images when only Facebook or Twitter was selected

Changed:
- Jeans styles's folder and thumbnail background plates changed to light from dark

Please note:
- Turtle now can create slide pages too with limited functionality. These are useful for SEO purposes, because the high resolution images are placed on a separate HTML page and can be indexed easier. Being this a new feature which changes many things, can break some of the album functionality. Use with precaution and test.
- If you want to play safe, disable the "Make slides" option on Settings / Pages / Advanced / Make slides - jAlbum might turn it on occasionally
- This update brings a new method for image linking, therefore when you update albums made previously, make sure to regenerate all sub-folders.
Settings / Advanced / Process subdirectories = ON
Settings / Advanced / Process only updated subdirectories = OFF

(Version 3.4.1 July 6, 2012)

New features:
- You can give a name to the "up link" (e.g. "All albums")
- ZIP originals or down-scaled images per folder and offer for download
(not only the whole album)

Changed:
- The "up link" feature has been moved into jAlbum's functionality, see on
"Settings / Pages" panel.
- Facebook Like, Twitter Tweet and Tumblr buttons removed from the individual images, because they were not referring to the image, but the whole album.

Fixed:
- Missing thumbnail of videos with "Link to originals" with no "Copy originals"
- Bug with XLSX, DOCX, PPTX files
- Facebook commenting might run out of the scroller area if there were no album images in a folder

Updated:
- Korean translation by Jaehyung Lee, Hungarian translation

Notes:
- jAlbum will take over the old up link settings of Turtle.
- ZIP originals works even if you don't select the "Link to originals" or
"Copy originals".
- The ZIP feature always creates (and Uploads) the ZIP files even if that's
unnecessary, because Turtle cannot detect if the files has changed. We might implement some change detection later. Sorry for the inconvenience!

3.4.0 20-06-2012

New features:
- Facebook Commenting
- Visitors can download the whole album as ZIP

Fixed:
- Controls should disappear quicker on touch devices
- Videos did not scale to fit initially, only after clicking the fit/1:1 button
- Thumbnail for sharing was not available when none of the sharing was selected

Please note, due to the fact the ZIP format does not store the Encoding (locale) of the file and folder names you might get broken file names (and albums) after extraction on Widows. Java encodes these names to UTF-8, which is used by OSX and Linux by default. Windows, however, is decoding them using the visitor PC's locale (never UTF-8). We will create a little applet by which visitors can decode these ZIP files properly, but until then I suggest you to keep with simple ASCII file and folder names, and use the "Title" field in Edit mode to add accented characters. This method is more safe for using the album on the web too.

For the Facebook commenting feature you will need to create a new app on Facebook's developer center: https://developers.facebook.com/ Copy the App ID in Turtle's Facebook App ID box. You can use the same App ID on all pages of your site.

2.2.0 Notes:

New features:
- You can control what will happen after moving beyond the last frame: "Nothing", "Start over", "Go one level up", "Go back to index page" or "Ask the user"

Fixed:
- The "New" indicator was not working with only folders in an album

- Paypal "View cart" button reported something's wrong with the user's site
- extra 20px gap above thumbnails when there were no folders
- Gray style's gradient was too dark on IE7-8

Changed:
- The minimum width for the Folder name has been set to 100px (70px before) so the skin will automatically switch to the "thumbnail above, text below" mode if less space has left next to the thumbnail (raise the number of columns - Settings / Pages / Columns - to see)

2.2.0 31-01-2012

New features:
- You can control what will happen after moving beyond the last frame: "Nothing", "Start over", "Go one level up", "Go back to index page" or "Ask the user"

Fixed:
- The "New" indicator was not working with only folders in an album

- Paypal "View cart" button reported something's wrong with the user's site
- extra 20px gap above thumbnails when there were no folders
- Gray style's gradient was too dark on IE7-8

Changed:
- The minimum width for the Folder name has been set to 100px (70px before) so the skin will automatically switch to the "thumbnail above, text below" mode if less space has left next to the thumbnail (raise the number of columns - Settings / Pages / Columns - to see)

New feature:
- Stick control bar to top (for those preferred Turtle 1.x's control bar placed on the screen top)

2.1.10 06-12-2011

Fixed:
- Google Maps did not work in some cases
- thumbnail scroller has an extra 40px left margin

- the header's bottom rounding is rough and visible on FireFox

2.1.9 05-12-2011

Fixed:
- Thumbnails did not show up on the first view but worked fine after a refresh (a timing issue)

(Also click "Show All" to see how to fix "Internal Error 500" if you made an album with Turtle 2.1.7 and hosted on a server not based on Apache)

2.1.8 05-12-2011

Modified:
- Removed .htaccess file from the skin, because it didn't work with all servers, and possibly could overwrite the user's own, previously added one. Those who experience "Internal Error 500" errors on their server don't need to regenerate the album however, just go into the "Upload / Manage" (Ctrl-M), Connect, click the wrench icon, and remove .htaccess file from the problem folder.

Info: .htaccess file was added in order to define the correct mime types (file handling by type) and to fine tune caching by file type. (E.g. JPG files can remain in the cache for longer times, while HTML files need to skip the cache.)

2.1.7 01-12-2011

Upgraded:
- jQuery to 1.7.1
- HTML boilerplate to 2.0

Fixed:
- Theme image is now stretched to fit the Title area

- Javascript error on IE7 and 8 (in jQuery)

2.1.6 29-10-2011

Fixed:
- Popups left on by mistake on mobile devices

- Download hint (Right click + Save link as...) added for the "Original" button

Fixed:
- Broken album when using apostrophe character in folder names (with URL encoding turned off)
- <b> <strong> <i> and <em> tags did not take effect in the comments

2.1.3 11-10-2011

New feature:
- Sharing options on the Info panel too. Please note, that not all sharing sites support links with hash, which is used by Turtle skin to link directly to the actual image. Even though Facebook will link to the actual image, it takes its thumbnail from the static page, that is it will use the Theme image, not the actual.

Fixed:
- Albums with "Link to original" used the high resolution images as thumbnail, resulting in slow page loads
- With transition type "Crossfade" the Zoom-in effect took place while in "Fit to screen" mode, causing slower transitions
- Better reference to album thumbnail that Facebook will like more, hopefully

2.1.2 06-10-2011

New feature:
- Better touch control on Android devices

Updated:
- Italian translation by Giovanni D'Amico
- Finnish translation by Pentti Stenman

- Some styles had texts hard to read

2.1.1 30-09-2011

New feature:
- You can use formatting characters in the header and footer content, or leave it as is for HTML or Javascript content.

Fixed:
- Audio loop didn't work
- Map did not work when the image caption template was empty
- Broken cross-fade transition (temporary blackout) on FireFox 5-7, due to a bug in FireFox's rendering engine
- Text color did not work on some places resulting in hard to read texts

Changed:
- The help button has been moved from the theme image area to the footer. No UI option for hiding it, as it's now hidden enough to bother anybody, I hope.

2.0.4 27-09-2011

New:
- Control for transition type (Cross fade and Cross fade + zoom currently) and speed on the Advanced panel

Fixed:
- The second file of background audio did not play (if added as album file).

New feature:
- You can choose to hide the album description and show only on mouse over the album title (like 1.x)
- Added "Legacy Black" and "Legacy White" styles to mimic Turtle 1.x look

Fixed:
- IE7 thumbnail page look is fixed
- IE7-8 the start button is repaired

2.0.0 20-09-2011

New in version 2.0

- Support for touch interface
- Based on HTML5 / CSS3
- The thumbnail page can be both horizontally or verticaly splitted between the thumbnails and the Theme image. Use portrait sized boundary to see.

UPGRADING FROM TURTLE 1.x ALBUM PROJECTS

Using Black or White stlyes, please re-select the style (not the skin), to allow the new background and text color settings be set. Without this you might end up in unreadable text.

The following settings need attention when opening old projects, because they will be reset to their default values (in parentheses):

- Splash size (Image width x Image height * 0.66)
- Reduce Thumbs (2 / 3)
- Facebook Like button (no)
- Show photo data (no)

These changes were necessary because the skin's code was now rewritten to work with other upcoming skins.

The Location and Shop option data added manually in the Edit mode has changed names too, but you can apply the Tools / External Tools / Rename Slide Variables tool with the following parameters to keep them working in the new version:
- _location = location
- _shopOptions = shopOptions

This change was necessary because jAlbum app has changed its handling of slide variables.

Besides the above changes the BlackBlue and BlackRed styles were removed, though tons of new styles were added at the same time.

The Shopping cart feature is only available for Premium or Power account holders and those who've bough the Pro license. Jalbum.net's past donators will also receive the Pro licence.

Changed:

*** I have introduced a new bug, which is just a wrong letter case in a file name, so it's not a new version just a minor change. Please install the skin again if you've downloaded it before 2010-11-15 02:00 AM CET. Sorry guys! ***

1.3.8 10-11-2010

New features:
- You can skip the modal window at the last frame asking "What to do next?"

Fixes:
- Google map didn't appear due to a new behavior (bug) in the underlying jQuery javascript library, which resulted in 0x0 px map area

Good day Laca, very nice skin ... THANKS! So I have quite a few movies in my family album (folders) and it looks like the skin converts them to .mp4 and copies them to the output directory even if I select "Link to orig". So every time I make changes (even if it's just a theme color change) it converts the videos again ---- which takes a TON of time. How can I either just use the original videos (so an actual link to them) or have the app copy the orig movies over (saving time not converting) or even realizing that the movies have already been converted after the 1st time and skip them with a make changes? The best case for me would be to just link to the org movies leaving them in their native resolution and format. Any help would be awesome!! :-) Thanks, Dave

Hi, jAlbum should not convert the movie again if nothing has changed in the meantime. You can turn off conversion with the "Tools -> Preferences -> Album -> Video support = OFF" setting, but then Turtle will only provide a link to the video, (not use it's built-in player), and let the video played by the default helper application of the OS. With videos already in MP4 format you can choose "right-click -> Do not reencode" and Turtle will play those files fine with its built-in player too.

Thanks much for the quick reply Laca. So it sounds like turning off Video support will link to the movies, but not work within the album... not a good choice. It also sounds like I could let jAlbum process the files once to turn them into MP4 format and then use the "right-click" -> do not re-encode option to skip them in future album builds. Good to know thanks!

You don't have to let jAlbum process MP4's once, you can use MP4 videos in their original format straight off. This is not true for other formats, because Turtle's player can only play MP4 files (besides MP3).

It looks like my reply didn't work so trying again. Thanks again Laca for the help and advice. So I've tested the right-click and do not re-encode. It does skip the files the next go round, but I get an error / warning in the produced album for the movies that says there's a Flash permissions issue and the movies don't play now. :-( I'm not sure why that happens. Based on your last comment about .mp4s not needing to be converted, I produced a small test folder and let the app convert some movies (.avi, .mov) to .mp4. I then copied them to the original location (moved out the original movies so only the .mp4s existed) and ran the app again (thinking it'd skip the .mp4s) but it still converted them! So now I'm not sure what to try next... thoughts? Thanks again, Dave

After installing 5.1.3 visitor counter was reset to zero.

This has nothing to do with the skin. Is this the visitor counter widget of jAlbum, or some custom code?

Read the warning in left column: "IMPORTANT: BEFORE any skin update save the current album! AFTER a skin update you'll have to reopen the current album or reload the skin with CTRL-L before "Make" in order the new version loaded completely." The settings got lost only because you are updating the currently open skin. If you update the skin while no album is open nothing can be lost.
