[Update June 29, 2016: 4.0.1 is now released and contains a fix for this issue.] User n8huntsman reported having trouble creating an album with a new 4.0.0 gallery. The message received was "Could not find album with ID = 0". After a bit of investigation the user discovered a missing directory at \Scripts\tinymce\plugins. Turns out the version of Gallery Server we published to Microsoft's Web Application Gallery omitted this directory. This caused the tinyMCE text editor to fail, which ultimately caused the album creation process to fail. Who is affected? You installed Gallery Server 4.0.0 through Microsoft's Web Platform Installer, the Azure Gallery, or your web hosting company's control panel And You are within the 30-day trial or you entered a license key for one of the commercial editions. If you registered a key for Gallery Server Free, you are not affected. If you installed or upgraded your gallery by downloading it directly from galleryserverpro.com, you are [...]
This afternoon we noticed an issue with using the jQuery jsTree widget in 3.2.0. This widget is used in several places in Gallery Server Pro – basically anywhere we need to display a tree of data we use jsTree. The issue is that when you select all the children of a node, the parents are automatically selected as well. For example, you might want to create a role with all edit permissions but no admin privileges. This bug caused the Admin gallery and Admin site nodes to be selected when all the children were selected, with no way to de-select them: This is actually the intended behavior of the jsTree widget, as I suppose it is the behavior you want in most cases. But not us. You need to select the children while leaving the parent unchecked if you so choose. If you want to select the parent, fine, but [...]

Today we released 3.0.2, containing 8 enhancements and 31 bug fixes. New features include a new default search option optimized for titles and captions, improvements to the naming of optimized images, and more. This release is a free upgrade to 3.0 license holders. Upgrading is easy – just copy the files from the upgrade package over your existing web application. Installations and upgrades for other scenarios are in the Quick Start Guide. New search option The search window now allows you to search the title and caption fields: Previously, the only way to search these fields was to select the Everything category, which has a pretty high performance cost and can take a long time for galleries with hundreds of thousands of objects. Searching by title/caption is now also the default, as we expect it is the more common usage scenario. Copy from a read-only gallery Some users have requested [...]
Today I identified a bug in the SQL Server provider where it does not correctly handle roles that have been assigned to multiple albums. The package downloads have been updated, so if you downloaded 2.5.0 before today, grab the latest GalleryServerPro.Data.SqlServer.dll from the install or upgrade package and replace your version.
Today I discovered a bug that affects all galleries upgraded from a version earlier than 2.4.3. You are affected if all of the following are true: You have PDF files in your gallery. You originally installed GSP before version 2.4.3 and then upgraded to one of the later versions. Your site is running in Full Trust. You installed the Gallery Server Pro Binary Pack. In short, this is a bug in the SQL upgrade script that shipped in 2.4.3 and later. Fortunately, there is an easy fix. First, some background: In a default installation GSP creates a generic thumbnail image for PDF files, like this: When you install the Gallery Server Pro Binary Pack, GSP uses the ImageMagick and GhostScript utilities to generate a thumbnail image that is an actual preview of the PDF file: Today I discovered a bug, introduced in 2.4.3, where PDF files *always* get the generic [...]
