In my on-going blitz of plugins and enhancements for Movable Type I am adding one more to the list: upgrades and enhancements to the Photo Gallery plugin, which you can already see on my personal photo galleries.
These features come compliments of one my favorite clients, Urban Moms, who sponsored the development of this latest addition to the open source plugin. They are using my Photo Gallery plugin across a number of their blogs, including the Urban Traveler, the Urban Closet, and the Urban Crafter. They came to me because they know that nothing helps increase page views to a site more than photos and images, and wow were they right. Within days of deploying their new albums, their traffic increased by over 10%. Now that's results. Of course it doesn't hurt to have great bloggers and photographers working for you either.
The features I added in this release are:
- The option to chose between a grid and blog layout for your front door.
- The option to display a "featured" photo on your front door.
Yes, documentation is a feature, ask anyone.
