DJ-MediaTools 2.16.5 update brings few improvements and bug fixes

| Andrzej Herzberg | News

The Joomla and gallery slideshow version 2.16.5 offers some changes. Let's check them.

New features

The icon linking to the edit slide view

It's a handy new feature introduced in this release. Each DJ-MediaTools slide in the album view in the site's backend now contains a "pencil" icon, which links directly to the selected slide edition page (opened in a new window.)

You can use this option to edit every custom item directly from the album view.

How to customize the layout in DJ-MediaTools?

Slides alphabetical order

We've added the new optional parameter responsible for the alphabetical sorting of album slides.

The new parameter you can find in the "Basic album options." Choose the "Alphabetical" option from the list, and all your slides from the selected album will be displayed alphabetically.
