Thank you for your feedback.

Still working on it, so i changed the link in to first post from master branch (which can be broken in between) to current "stable" beta branch -> https://github.com/canonknipser/viewexi ... 0-beta.zip ;)

And just set up a testboard, where you can see it working without installing at your board. No registration required. -> http://canonknipser.com/viewforum.php?f=2

Link also in first post.

Interesting extension, but I'm not sure if everyone (I mean forum members) wants to see exif data, so I would like to ask if there is (or could be) option to show/hide exif data.

Currently, there is no option for a user to switch on / of exif data. Maybe in a later version a acp (e.g. by-forum on/off, selected specific exif data to show) and / or ucp (e.g. show / hide exif for displayed attachments, allow / forbid exif for posted attachments) will be added.
The only option at the moment is for admins to enable / disable the ext complete.

I put your suggestion to the github issue tracker -> https://github.com/canonknipser/viewexif/issues/2

Thank you for reply. I was thinking about something more simple - link on image to show exif on click or hover (something like this, but it doesn't have to be jQuery or exif over the image).

Oh, yes, you are right. Missed that one. I only checked the 3.1-fora when looking for such a extension.

I found parts of the source which i used in my extension in a 3.0.x board source. This board i maintained a while ago (now this board is abandoned and gone), the former owner did not leave any comments about and from the mods he used in his sources.

I was not aware that the code changes he made were based on nickvergessen's mod.

I will put the cretentials in the first post and in the extensions readme.

Can you clarify that? I didn't find any extension in the extensions database or in extension development forum to show exif data for attachments.
The only extension i found is the gallery extension; which will show also exif data. But if a board owner has no need for the gallery, he has no exif data.

Yes, but reading the first post would have given that information too ;)

Its because using the php exif library, which allows currently only reading exif from jpg and tiff images. Maybe in the future i will switch to exiftool, which supports a wider range of file.
