The home page of demo1 is becoming quite popular. If you think that displaying always the same photo on your homepage may become boring, you can create a specific album with all photos you want on your home page. Then, in your home page content, instead of writing:
you can write…
… where 32 is the numeric identifier of the album. Piwigo will randomly pick a photo from this album. You need the plugin Extended Description to be active.
- Note 1: The [random album=32] trick works in a PWG Stuffs personal block as well.
- Note 2: you can mark the album as private if you want to hide it from your gallery
Any Piwigo photo gallery can have a specific home page, with any content on it. Just use the Additionnal Pages plugin and set a page as homepage.
We have received some emails on Piwigo.com support because the breadcrumbs were not including the albums root: Home / Album level 1 / Album level 2. With a specific home page, the “home” links goes to it. In practice you had to go back to home page to return on albums root.
We have just added a small feature: if you have an home page defined with Additional Pages, then the breadcumbs includes the albums root: Home / Albums / Album level 1 / Album level 2.

We have a referral program on Piwigo.com. The way it works is easy: when a new user subscribes with your referral code, then both of you get an extra month for free.
Each Piwigo.com account gets a referral code as soon as the subscription is confirmed. You can find this code on your screen [Administration > My Account > Referrals]
Where does the new user enters your referral code? on his subscription management screen [Administration > My Account > Subscription]
When the new user confirms his subscription, you receive a notification by email.
Did I forget to say that there was no limit on the number of referred users? It simply means that if you get enough of them you won’t pay any subscription renewal for a very long time! 10 referred users = 10 extra months for free, 20 referred users = 20 extra months for free…
A new theme is available, Sakura BW : black background, grey text, fixed width central column, flower in the banner. Read More
