I have set up a 1.6 test gallery to see if there are any problems with coppermine plugins that I use, as couple of days ago I tried upgrading a test 1.5 gallery, but it failed.

All went well with the 1.6 test until I tried installing MINIcms - which failed, with an error when processing a database query.

Phill suggested I start a new topic so that others could mention any problems they had when trying 1.6.

Just noticed that Lightbox doesn't show title or description as it does with 1.5. If you are used to how it appears, try it in my 1.6 test site.

I have used exactly the same settings for v3.2 in the 1.6 test and my 1.5 galleries.

Have not totally determined why it is different between 1.5 and 1.6, but the following corrects it.

In the file plugins/lightbox_notes_for_net/style.css at about line #148, change:
Code: [Select]
#lightbox-container-image-data-box {
font: 10px Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
background-color: #fff;
margin: 0 auto;
line-height: 1.4em;
overflow: auto;
width: 100%;
/*padding: 0 10px 0;
float: center;*/
display: inline;
text-align: center;
}
to:
Code: [Select]
#lightbox-container-image-data-box {
font: 10px Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
background-color: #fff;
margin: 0 auto;
line-height: 1.4em;
overflow: auto;
width: 100%;
/*padding: 0 10px 0;
float: center;
display: inline;*/
text-align: center;
}
... comments out display: inline

As mentioned in other post, I have an updated version of miniCMS... Finishing up some testing.
I'll post here and in the plugins sub board when ready.

As mentioned in a topic on mobile themes, miniCMS doesn't work with mobile_light, but it does with curve_responsive. Is that an easy fix or not related to the content of miniCMS?

Working with one theme and not another I would typically expect to be a theme issue - and not the plugin...
Won't say its not a possibility - but would appear to be setting things up properly if curve_responsive works with it.
Curve and curve_responsive are the themes I would use for testing typically.
