Last Updated: November 28, 2018

Latest Update: I have updated the changelog.

This plugin manages and works with a few well known social media websites. This plugin is in a class of it’s own. The developer keeps adding more features and functionality as requests are made by people.

Photonic Works With The Following

  • WP Gallery
  • Picasa
  • Google Photos
  • Flickr
  • 500px
  • SmugMug
  • Instagram
  • Zenfolio

Note: These are simple and easy to follow tutorials to help you understand and set up Photonic. However you still need to test your settings before you publish your website or blog.


Photonic 2.11 Changelog

  • Optimized and modularized JavaScript by separating out each lightbox script
  • Flickr photsets in a collection were losing their order due to parallel calls – now fixed
  • Instagram Masonry layout was hardcoding image sizes and not working properly
  • Fixed an issue in the interactive workflow that was causing a fatal error for PHP versions < 5.5
  • Modified the Flickr photo display link to be more “specific”. E.g. if a photo is in an album its link in Flickr will be specific to that album instead of the user’s photostream
