1.0 Beta6 Released!

Post by Ted »

Hey all,

It's finally beta time!

Here's the changelog so far.  Please post any bugs to the tracker.

Thanks to the rest of the dev team for their hard work on this one.  We had 3 false alarms for releasing this beta before finally doing it.

Ted

Version 1.0 "Hawaii" -- In Beta
-----------------

* Events

  A workflow system.  Events are generated either by the core, or by a module
  and can be handled either by other modules, or by User Defined Tags.  The
  administrator can add, remove, or re-order any of the event handlers
  for a particular event.  This functionality allows site administrators to
  add custom behavior and workflow to their system that have not been
  coded directly into the core or into other third party modules.
 
  For example, with a simple user defined Tag, it is now possible for
  a news article to automatically be added whenever a file is uploaded
  in the Uploads module.

* Search

  A brand new search module has been written that allows indexing of content,
  excluding certain words, and unlimited customization.  It is possible for
  third party module developers to write some code into their modules to
  allow searching of module content.

* Module Manager
 
  The module manager allows querying, and installing of modules hosted
  on a remote server.  The Module Manager allows an administrator to
  see the help, and about information, the dependencies, and other
  details of a module before downloading it.

* Module List Improvements

  The Module list as been optimized and some new functionality added:
  - Core modules can no longer be exported to XML
  - Only installed third party modules can be exported to XML
  - There is an option to completely remove all of the module files
    after a module has been uninstalled (if sufficient permissions exist).
  - A check is done for permissions to indicate that there may be a
    problem removing the files.

* Improved Installer
     
  The installer has been given some tweaks, and some additional checks
  to hopefully ward off some of the more common installation issues, and
  to ensure that most of the functionality of CMS will work properly
  after installation.

* Simplified Default Stylesheets

  The default stylesheets have been simplified and documented, so that
  it is (hopefully) easier for somebody to start modifying their site
  given the standard stylesheets

* Improved default templates and content

  The default templates and content have been improved in appearance and
  in content, and thoroughly documented.

* Improved content list

  Content list has been given an overhaul:
  - Active, Default, Collapse and Move buttons now work via AJAX calls
    for faster response.
  - A drag and drop reodering system
  - Reordering boxes for the css/javascript impaired

* AJAX Content Preview

  The preview has been moved to a tab and will update as soon as you click
  on it.

* Admin interface improvements

  The appearance of the admin interface has been improved significantly.
  There are now help links in each module and in other core locations that
  will link back to the wiki.

* New default layouts

  tested with all major browsers (including Internet Explorer 7 beta 3)
  Styles and templates now have comments so editing is easier
  sample stylesheets for handheld devices and print

* Improved plugins

  The image, cms_selflink, anchor, breadcrumbs, and other plugins have all
  been improved, and other plugins added, such as "recently_updated"

* New System Modules

  nuSOAP and CMSMailer are now included in the default install, since so
  many modules rely on them for basic functionality.

* Upgraded smarty to 2.6.14

* Upgrade ADODB Lite

  CMSMS doesn't require that adodb or adodb lite be modified anymore.  If you need a different
  version, just download from their site and you're good to go.

  *** IMPORTANT NOTE ***

  Modules that use timestamps, or that use the RowCount() method in CMS 0.13 or
  earlier, will need to be upgraded.  This accounts for a large majority of modules and
  hopefully new versions of most modules will be out by the final release.

* Some of the bigger bugs that were fixed

  - Fixed a bug in the metadata tag where showbase would default to false, even when
    it should be true
  - Fixed a bug with displaying a few admin images
  - Fixed most of the -- Add Me -- messages when using other languages besides the default
    one for that module
  - Fixed bug with IIS support
  - Fixed bug with stylesheet display in postgres
  - Fixed bug where content type changes wouldn't stick

EDIT: uh sorry where to get it?

Multilang will be handled after 1.0, infact the feature list of what more will be added in 1.0 is rather small.

and comments on news articles is possible now, you just have to look in the forums.

OK, I think a big well done is in order! ?The admin interface seems much better, I've just been playing around with it on my local machine for the last hour or two and most everything seems to work OK. A few minor points.

1. SEARCH: seems to work very well ;-), I like the idea of being able to register modules to be searched.
a. I'm getting a
'DEBUG: redirecting to 29
'
error when I try to set a page to display the results e.g. {search resultpage="searchresults"} where 'searchresults' is a page alias.
I've had a quick look at the code and can't quite see what this bit of code is for?

b. Also with search, it display the 'non-clean' urls in the browser bar e.g.
http://macweb/cms/index.php?mact=Search ... eturnid=21
instead of a clean
http://macweb/cms/searchresults/ (if you're using clean url's)

c. Not sure about the layout of the search form. Should it not have a label for the text input? Also what about some default text in the the text input e.g. "Enter search...". I seem to remember this might be a good idea for accessibility. Also what about id's rather than names? Could do with one on the submit button. Haven't names been deprecated? I'm not sure I like using smarty stuff for this. Seems to overcomplicate things for me??

Ommissions
I was a bit dissapointed, well quite a lot actually, to not see some form of stopping or warning that the page you're editing is already being edited. Perhaps the best way would be too lock the record untill saved - saying who has it open if possible. I talked previously to Ted about this as there was some code already done which perhaps could have modified. I was under the impression (perhaps wrongly) that this was to be included? Currently you can really only have one person managing and entering data because  two people can edit the same page at the same time. In reality of course many people manage a web site. Apart from that - Funky with a capital 'F'

I've fixed the debug message, and I'll look at the lables, and id's etc. after B2 comes out.

It works if you check "Import all styles" and don't assign a type to your stylesheet.
Note: I don't have time to take on any more projects. I'm quite busy. I may be too busy to reply to emails or messages. Thanks for your understanding. :)

1.0 is using unhacked ADODB Lite, so rowcount() must be replaced with recordcount(). There's also some changes if using datastamp. See this post.

It's not necessary to use the blog module to do this, it's just more convenient.

if you look in the forum there are ways to embed the comments module into the news module without the blog module.
