G1.17 Released

Available as ever in deanload.

Those upgrading from g1.16 must run the script at /textpattern/_g117update.php in a browser after installing, otherwise all hell will break loose.

Those upgrading from versions g1.15 and older must run the g116 update script inside their textpattern directory before running the g117 update script, otherwise all hell will break loose.

Some changes:

  • Add YYYY-DD-MM to date formats
  • Added ‘month’ parameter to <txp:article_custom />
  • Added ‘keywords’ parameter to <txp:article_custom />
  • Added <txp:excerpt /> to useful tags
  • Added an option never to display commenter email addresses
  • Added new conditional tag pairs <txp:if_individual_article> and <txp:if_article_list>
  • Added error correction that checks if no page template has been assigned to a section
  • Added option to exclude author email address from atom feeds
  • Added the ability to record keywords for specific articles
  • Added the ability to toggle whether or not Textile is used on articles and excerpts
  • Articles may now be published with a timestamp from any damn century
  • Commenters can no longer submit blank comments
  • Deprecated <txp:paging_link> in favour of two new tags, <txp:newer> and <txp:older>. These can be placed anywhere on a page where multiple articles are listed, and will page accurately through result sets
  • Fixed a problem where articles set to be published in the future were showing up in Recent Articles lists
  • Fixed a problem where Textile was turning ampersands into garbage characters in link descriptions
  • Fixed a variable misnaming that was causing all comments to be emailed to authors, even if this was turned off in prefs
  • Fixed erroneous double-encoding of entities in link descriptions
  • Implemented hierarchical categories: article, image and link categories can now have parents and children
  • Moved ‘logs’ tab from ‘content’ to ‘admin’ area
  • Search results now use a form called search_results, with appropriate placeholder tags, instead of nested html
  • There is now an option in admin_config.php to use excerpts or full article text in XML feeds
  • When creating a new article, section and category selections were being lost when toggling html and preview; this is now fixed
  • You can now put newer/older paging links anywhere on the page

Lovely. I have been checking the annoncements several times today anticipating the release. Now I can’t wait to get home and upgrade. Thanks Dean.

Thanks for this and all the other new features, specially for hierarchical categories. I’ve got the impression that TXP is becoming a very powerful tool.

All the new characteristics, together with the philosophy of TXP, turn it into an ideal tool in order to manage corporative webs of small companies, in addition to personal websites.

Re: G1.17 Released

Output tags that deal with category context (breadcrumb trails, trees) are coming, and are quite trivial to make.

The big step was implementing them in the back end.

Re: G1.17 Released

“Toggle Textile” … GREAT

“timestamp from any damn century” …. yup, we’ll use that

“ability to record keywords for specific articles “ … oh baby

“results now use a form called search_results” … very useful

The rest we’ll be trying out later.

<i>update</i>
One very small note. The version number still reads “Textpattern

Well said <b>kusor</b>. That’s been my point in a number of other threads all along. This isn’t just about weblogs. The number of different applications this (Textpattern) could be used in is impressive.

Dean, I hope you make a bundle ; )

Sincerely,

Ray
