Captions 2.1.10 released

Posted in Latest News

This update fixes the "responsiveness" of captions so that they are now responsive when the image or caption container is aligned left or right (using the float:left or float:right css style).

The structure of the caption now looks like this:

<span class="wf_caption" style="display: block; max-width: 400px; width: 100%;"><img src="/images/flower.jpg" alt="Flower" width="400" style="width: 100%; margin: auto;" /><span style="text-align: center; display: block;">Flower</span></span>

These changes are supported on all browsers tested (Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Safari, IE >= 7). IE6 does not display the caption and image correctly, stretching both to the full width of the parent container. It may be possible to fix this using IE6 conditional css (suggestions welcome!), eg:

.wf_caption {
    display: inline-block !important;
    width: auto !important;
}
.wf_caption img {
    width: auto !important;
}

Changelog and Download

New Media Player 

This update improves audio and video handling, replacing the Adobe Strobe Media Playback player, which is no longer maintained by Adobe, with a Flash based media player based on the one used in the MediaElement.js library.

HTML5 Media Shim

In addition, a media shim option has been included which will provide a fallback for browsers that don't support mp4, flv and mp3 media (embedded using the HTML5 <video> and <audio> tags), using this new player. This is disabled by default, and can be enabled in the Mediabox parameters:

JCE 2.5.10 released

Posted in Latest News

Update: JCE 2.5.11 has been released to fix an error in the Remove Image EXIF data parameter value. 

JCE 2.5.10 has been released. This update adds a minor change to the way uploaded files are validated, and adds an option to remove EXIF data from uploaded image files.

Removing EXIF data

An option has been added in Editor Profiles -> Editor Parameters -> Filesystem to remove EXIF data from JPEG and PNG images on upload.

Remove Exif


This option is disabled by default, but unless there is a specific reason to retain EXIF data, we recommend you enable this option, as it is useful for 2 reasons:

Security

Removing the EXIF data from JPEG images removes any malicious code that could have been added by a user. Obviously this is not an issue if you know and trust your user!

Anonymity

Did you know that the EXIF data in an image can contain information about where the image was taken? Smart phones and some cameras that contain GPS can tag images with the GPS location of where the picture was taken. Removing the EXIF data removes this information.
