i did some css changements in gallery. I set them to gridbox custom code editor (to avoid easement after gallery update) and all worked fine. But after that update, css code written in gridbox for gallery does not work anymore.

Whats up here and how can i get this working this way again?

Thx Thomas

It would be awesome if future versions of these packages would use the Joomla! update engine so we could use our automated tools to update sites. Each patch means we have to log into dozens of sites to update.

Just food for thought.

And what should I do on the older versions (f.e. 1.7.2) of Forms/Galleries - if the update button does not work? There is a blank page on the login popup... nothing happens - and I cannot update these extensions??

If I install it again over the older version (from the downloaded .zip file) the gallery is broken. All the images are 'justified' even if there is a 'grid' layout on them. Thumbnails are not prepared even after regenerate.

On the other newer versions- when updating- there is a message 'BaForms was not updated. Try again'. What should I do?

Please, do something about it, it's totally messing up with several websites :(

Gallery update sometimes works- but then - it's totally messing with thumbnails. Cleaning up the cache or regenerating does not work. Gallery looks like totally broken :(

Hello, there!

In 90% cases issues with thumbnails come from the cache plugins etc.

If anyone have any issues with updating, please feel free to send us Joomla admin access through our contact form:

NOTE: Before launching any updates we testing updating process carefully locally and after that on hosting. You should to understand that on extension can affect external factors: conflicts with other Joomla! extensions, caching plugins, 3rd party caching systems (cache on hosting, cloudflare, etc.) hosting configurations, etc.

In any way, we ready to provide best support to our customers and ready to check any issue
