    Hi Jordy, there is CameraMake in your list. In addition there in an Exif.Photo.LensMake in the official list, but it does not work within WP/LR. As I would like to show the manufacturer of my lenses, e.g. “with Sigma 17-70mm” instead of “with 17-70mm”, do you have a suggestion ?

    • Hi πŸ™‚ I don’t see any LensMake in the official list, I think you found this somewhere else. This is part of the Lightroom SDK (http://www.adobe.com/devnet/photoshoplightroom/sdk/eula_lr6.html).

        Hi, Jordy, maybe I got it wrong. This is the official Exif list, isn’t it? http://www.exiv2.org/tags.html

        • What we can use through the Lightroom API/SDK is not the official EXIF but the fields provided by LR. And somehow… we can’t get the proper lens information πŸ™ In addition, in the EXIF of the exported images, we can get the technical details of the lens but not the maker (Lightroom, Photoshop or else). Why exactly? I am not sure. It would be lovely if somebody could come with an explanation, I am sure there is one.

    Hi, spent my first day with WP/LR sync and I must say it is really great and cannot be compared with any other app in this field. Have a short question: I am using your Meow Gallery plugin for WP; how do I view the captions (image description) without clicking on the images? Eg in the masonry view.

    I would like to ask if it is possible to make URL by using different methods.

    Lets assume there is two post with same title but content is different and they are in different categories. Then I would like to use this post name as URL under specific categories without having any number or ID on URL.

    ex:
    domain/new-york/ happy-restaurant
    domain/san-francisco/ happy-restaurant.

    There is two Happy Restaurants but in different cities. So, is it possible to create sucj links? (that can be applied for any project)

    if it is possible, how it can be?

    I asked to many ppl but no one found a way yet …

I recommend you to use WPEngine or SiteGround. They are both excellent hosting services and work perfectly with all my plugins.
