Re: Textpattern CMS 4.0.3 released

If you see unstyled pages for individual articles or section pages, and you are using txp:css with the n="nameofstylesheet" then take a look at this topic:
http://forum.textpattern.com/viewtopic.php?id=13613

Note: The problem is strictly limited by production_status and only appears in testing/debugging, not on live sites.

Re: Textpattern CMS 4.0.3 released

7 upgrades in 30 minutes and other than preserving txplib_head.php and textpattern.css for each site it was easy as Pi.

You should apply the changes made to textpattern.css though. Otherwise all comments in your comment-list will look identical, no matter whether they are set to spam, unmoderated or visible.

edit: There have also been changes to txplib_head.php regarding the javascript in there, which partly changed, and partly moved to it’s own file.

Re: Textpattern CMS 4.0.3 released

Thanks for the update and the comment spam protection(s). Update was straight forward and without adventure.

Yep I saw that afterwards. I will have to rehack my “pretty” admin areas. :)

Re: Textpattern CMS 4.0.3 released

Thanks for this, Sencer, and all.

Two questions:

  1. What exactly does the captcha plugin do? Why should I install it? I’m sure it’s good, I just don’t see any info on it.
  2. With respect to the FAQ about checking one has upgraded correctly — that’s a long, complicated list of characters to digest, not to mention the time involved. If a person is dealing with a lot of sites, this could be discouraging. I update using SVN, and then do an <code>svn info</code> check to see how it went. Is that not a reasonable approach? Is it possible to automate the checksum checking process somehow?

Re: Textpattern CMS 4.0.3 released

Destry, those are good questions.

Re 1: After a preview, the Captcha Plugin will display an image with a code on it, and an input field. right below the textarea. When you submit, it is checked whether the code matches, if it does, the comment is made visible. If it doesn’t, the user has up to three tries to enter a corret code, after that the comment is recorded as unmoderated. See an example:
asy_captcha example

Re 2: Yes, there are other ways to check if you are using svn. The table is mainly used if something is not as expeted, and one want to make sure, the files are correct. And I agree, that we should make an automated wa to chek this (probably via XML-RPC). I’ll add it to the to-do list. :)

CAPTCHA is very very bad practice accessibility-wise, I would advice against it, but if you really have trouble with spam I guess it’s OK to use it.

Now I have a question: Will TXP ever going to be able to spit out strict markup? It seems like the ball is rolling with recent two cool updates, but I don’t see any upgrades on this matter. Also right now I think a whole lot could be done to improve the accessibility of the markup it is producing.

I am willing to do wahtever to help, I just want to know if it’s worth it, because I see people hacking it to make it work better for strict DTDs, and it is not a whole lot to ask and to help I think.

Can anyone second this?

Re: Textpattern CMS 4.0.3 released

Do you mean the output of the production sites themselves? or just the Textpattern interface?

Because this page already validates as XHTML 1.0 strict running the last release, 4.0.2.
