Revision 1.0.9 (2018-11-25)
About: A small and lightweight Captcha solution to keep your installation free from bot spam comments and bot fake registrations.
It does not rely on any remote resources - like Recaptcha from Google or any others. This means you do not have to mention it in your GDPR compliance declaration. If Google enables Recaptcha V3 soon, Recaptcha will act like a tracker, since the advice is to implement it on every single page of your website. You will dislike Google for this, hopefully.
Installation is as easy as with any other plugin. Since this plugin does not use any database tables it does not matter which MySQL version you are using.
The Captcha works the classic way. There are some configuration options like colors, OCR confusion, dimensions and length of challenge. Just explore the possibilities in the plugin area of Piwigo admin.
Yes, it is the 5th or so Captcha solution, but all other solutions rely on remote resources or are not maintained anymore.
You can protect comments below pictures, comments below categories (plugin Comments on Albums), user registration, guestbook entries (plugin GuestBook) and the contact form (plugin Contact Form).
The plugin is based on work of mistic and Stefan Petre.
Would love to receive feedback.
Changes: Added support for Guestbook and Contactform, Bugfix in session house keeping, added some credits for those this work is based on (mistic, Stefan Petre)
Revision 1.0.5 (2017-11-06)
About: Developed a "Fancy" footer plugin that uses a hook to deposit a styled banner at the bottom of Piwigo pages.
* Social Media Links - Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+, and YouTube
* Business Logo
* Business name, address, hours, and phone number,
* About me for business
* Bootstrap Darkroom
* Bootstrap Default
Tested primarily on the Bootstrap darkroom theme. Not sure of performance on themes other than those tested but I think it will probably work with most of the Piwigo themes. The local files editor plugin can be used to edit styling.
Changes: Noticed irregularities with the social media icons (stacking vertically). Should be fixed to stack horizontally. Deleted some "junk" style code that was not being used. Modified two styles #about_block became .about and #contact_block became .contact.
Revision 2.7.0 (2014-09-25)
About: Add a "Contact" item in the Menu block to offer a form to users for contacting webmasters and administrators.
Changes: Compatible with Piwigo 2.7
