Can't connect to the gimp plugin registry - Ninilac - 07-08-2018

Hey,

I'm a returning Gimp user and I'm trying to access the gimp plugin registry, but it seems to be down or something: it isn't responding.
Did the website change? I'm trying to get the layer effects plugin and I can't find a download link from any other website...

Link: http://registry.gimp.org/glossary/g

Edit: oops, just realized this is in the wrong section, sorry

these are the ones i have

two python plug-ins and the scm version

i always use the layerfx python (has a preview), but not the 2.8, because that one had a bug with layergroups
the script version has no preview and works with layermasks, which i do not recommend if you want to do some advanced stuff

Could be that it is gone for good this time.

You can sometimes get a script if you can search and find the script URL.
Then paste that into the internet archive search which might, (but not always) get a result.

but that is not guaranteed to be around forever.

Often best way, as here, ask on a Gimp forum. Someone, somewhere will have a copy.

You can download the whole registry packed together by pixls.us from here:

Thanks for that. Nice to know it has been saved.

Before you want layerfx and jump in and download, the zip (157 MB) is a mirror of the web-site not just a collection of scripts and plugins. (Has been known that people use their mobile phones here Wink )

So download it. Unzip to a folder somewhere. This in linux but should be the same for Windows (I hope)

Find the sub-folder for the glossary. Open that in a browser (drag-n-drop should work). That gives a starting point for finding a file. (or open the index.html file then use the see the glossary link)

Then just like any other web page. Under the 'L's an entry for Layer Effects, Right click to download.

Thanks a lot everyone, I was able to get the file and use it Big Grin

Btw, you can also get the files directly, if you know the name (In my case, layerfx.scm), in the "\registry.gimp.org\files" folder. That folder seems to hold every plugin there was on the website.
