Re: Feature Requests

Feature request from bjbarouch (original thread):

Bug: password handling

It is inconvenient to have the password stored in a separate file from the config file. I was told this was for security, but config.xml and jbcore/pswd.php are both accessible from the client side. To be secure, instead of storing passwords in plain text in any file, passwords should be passed through a secure digest such as SHA-2 and the result of that process stored. If this approach is taken, they can be in config.xml, because knowing these values does not inform anyone of the passwords themselves.

Re: Feature Requests

The Juicebox Full Browser mode requires two return buttons: a previous page button and a home page button.

In Full Browser mode, whose interest is to leave as much space as possible for images, the interface of the site where the gallery is located disappears and the Juicebox interface should allow the following two features:
- return to the previous page (by accessing the gallery from the site where it is located),
- access the home page of the site (when the gallery is accessed from a search engine or an external link).
The BackButton can be used to meet either of these needs, but not both! And if a hijacked use of the gallery title can fill this gap (add a link and use   to avoid that the gallery title overlaps with the home page button icon!), a second button would really be more appropriate.

My request, concerning the future features of Juicebox: a previous page button and a homepage button.

@Bricolage

Thank you for your suggestion.

My notes below may help to clarify some things for others reading your post.

- return to the previous page (by accessing the gallery from the site where it is located),

The Close Gallery button (displayed in place of the Expand Gallery button after the gallery has been expanded) will return the user to the gallery's embedding page.

- access the home page of the site (when the gallery is accessed from a search engine or an external link).

This, as you suggest, can be achieved with the Back Button. Please see here for a list of Back Button configuration options.

And if a hijacked use of the gallery title can fill this gap (add a link...

You can certainly add a link to a Gallery Title using HTML formatting as noted in this FAQ:
How do I add HTML formatting to the Gallery Title or Back Button?

... to avoid that the gallery title overlaps with the home page button icon!

You can use different values for backButtonPosition/backButtonHAlign and galleryTitlePosition/galleryTitleHAlign to ensure that the Back Button and Gallery Title do not overlap one another.

Re: Feature Requests

Steven,
Thanks for the reply.
I probably misspoke (confused and low level of English).
I try again!

When a Juicebox gallery is embedded as Full Browser and fills 100% x 100% of the browser window, the only user interface is the Juicebox gallery's one. In this case (e.g. using the html page created by Juicebox Builder Pro), there is no Close Gallery button (that is normal) and the natural way to leave this gallery is the top left Back button (icon or text). Is this correct?
The Back button allows either to go back to the previous page (history.back method by default) or to specify an url (homepage for example). Is this correct?

Using a Juicebox gallery page embedded as Full Browser, I wish the user to be able to :
- return to the previous page when the gallery page is accessed from the site where it is located,
- access the home page of the site when the gallery page is accessed from a search engine or an external link.
To do that, I use the Back button icon to return to the previous page and the Gallery Title to access the home page.
When the Gallery Title HAlign is left (that's what I wish), the gallery title overlaps with the Back button icon and the only way to avoid that is to use spaces to shift the gallery title. I've done that but it's a little tricky and generates some problems (e.g. in mobile ssm mode, the Galerie Title is not on the true left of the page).

So my request is two Back buttons : a previous page button and a home page button.

Best regards.

Re: Feature Requests

Thank you for the clarification. I understand your suggestion better now.

Yes, that is correct. There is no Close Gallery button in a gallery that has not been expanded.

The Back button allows either to go back to the previous page (history.back method by default) or to specify an url (homepage for example). Is this correct?

Yes. That is also correct.

Re: Feature Requests
