Installation

This module may be downloaded from the gallery3-contrib GIT repository here.

To install, extract the "ecard" folder from the zip file into your Gallery 3 modules folder. Log into your Gallery web site as an administrator and activate the module in the Admin -> Modules menu.

Must Fix

The following is a list of things that must be fixed:

  • Update to post-RC2 API
  • Ensure the button doesn't show up when viewing in an album, only when looking at a photo
  • Update the results:success dialog
  • Add BCC for the admin.
  • Add keyword (to/from) to admin settings
  • Make it appear in the sidebar maintenance page.

Wish List

  • Maintain a list of most popular eCards
  • Per user, a popular recipient list
  • Allow eCards to be sent at a future date. (Hopefully danneh will be able to implement module-level cron so I can get this in)
  • Admin option to send non-watermarked image if image is watermarked.
  • Add a reCAPTCHA to the form (similar to the comments module)
  • Tweak the button on the sidebar. If someone has a postcard or envelope icon that can be used, please let me know.
  • The term "eCard Settings" under Admin > Settings should probably be "eCard settings" (lower case 's') to follow the rest of the naming conventions in G3.
  • Send to multiple recipients
  • Send a copy to yourself
  • Limit the size of the message to XXX chars
  • Option to send thumbnail vs resized image
