Flickr API change

Flickr is changing it's API to SSL only on 27 of June 2014: what it means?
Basically it means that the communication with Flickr and it's users galleries became even more solid and secure. This change is affecting all Photographos galleries that communicate with Flickr - other galleries are not affected at all.

We are reviewing all Flickr related galleries and will release updates asap.

Parallaxis update

Just uploaded revision 2.1 of Parallaxis with some important improvements happening on the background, now the theme is even lighter and faster. A complete change log can be found in the read me file on the downloaded package.

Parallaxis + Frameworks Integration

In an experimental mode Parallaxis can be adapted to work with Bootstrap or Foundation frameworks. 
Visit the frameworks demo sites: 

There are two main drawbacks to this approach:
  1. the page will take a few more seconds to load both style sheet and JavaScript files needed
  2. the simulator will not work properly

Also note that although both frameworks integrate fine with Parallaxis, this approach is an experiment only and no support can be given on any framework requirements, application and editing whatsoever.

I’ve prepared a dedicated tutorial project to help you getting started, download it here: 

More info and docs for both frameworks:

As always…have fun!

Shopping Cart changes

Huge changes here at Archetypon! We are moving to 2Checkout online payment processor and DPD (Digital Product Delivery) system, in an attempt to better server our customers on the purchase, checkout and after sales process.

2Checkout can process Paypal as well as Credit and Debit Card payments, something that was missing from our previous processors. DPD is a leader in shopping cart and digital fulfilment service for downloadable products.

If you encounter any issue in our newly implemented system please do not hesitate to contact us at support@archetypon.net

BigVideo + Parallaxis

I've just finished an experiment using BigVideo and Parallaxis theme, after a customer request, and thought it could be of interest for other customers as well. It looks really great in Chrome and Safari, not so in Firefox. Did not tested in Internet Explorers at all. For best results we may use mp4, mov or Vimeo videos.
An example can be seen here: http://archetypon.net/preview/parallaxis/BV/

How to do it using Parallaxis theme:
  1. Download the RapidWeaver project from this location: http://goo.gl/ICCNnV
  2. Open the page in edit mode and double click on the very first element, the HTML element, to edit it's contents
  3. Replace the link on the little script with a link to your own video

That's all. Note that this is given without any guaranties or support from my part.
Have fun!

Slideshow Fullscreen Update

Help Desk Update

Important changes were done to our support desk, now entitled the Help Desk.

Much work were done on the back end related to the integration with the new Archetypon website layout, so the end user can have a better experience while getting a top notch support.

Benchmarks for Support Desk

These are our latest (March 15) benchmarks regarding our response times and channel tickets. Much work has been done in order to decrease the first response times, taking in account the different time zones and our business hours.
Archetypon Benchmarks 1

Another interesting point is that customers are opening tickets via the web portal, rather than email. This tells much about the work behind the helping desk and each product's manual in the forums.
Talking about forums and I'd announce that public forums will be opened in a test base in the near future.
