sed_cleaner

Perhaps useful to some who posted opinions here.

NB: >>>>> THIS IS FOR USE ON NEW SITES <<<<<

A little plugin that’s meant to be used right after first installation on a new textpattern site. It…

  • Removes default content (comments, links, files, articles, images & categories of all kinds)
  • Resets a few prefs (custom fields, spam lookups)
  • Allows auto-installation of your favourite plugins
  • Allows auto-installation/update of pages, forms and styles.
  • Allows scripted config of your favourite preferences
  • Allows scripted removal of sections, pages & forms
  • Allows scripted blanking of pages, forms and styles (with special handling for the default page)
  • Allows scripted addition of sections
  • Attempts to remove the setup directory†
  • Can try to remove other directories such as the RPC server files†
  • then removes itself.

These operations may fail if the filesystem permissions don’t allow the script to make the changes.

Please don’t use on any install with content you wish to keep.

Change Log & download links.

Re: sed_cleaner

Sweet :)
Does it also mean that the ID# of the first article I will publish will be #1 instead of #2?
(that will give it a really cool “format” feel)

It should reset all auto-incrementing IDs on the articles and other content it removes as it uses a MySQL TRUNCATE TABLE query to do its thing. Specifically from the documentation for that call…

“The table handler does not remember the last used AUTO_INCREMENT value, but starts counting from the beginning. This is true even for MyISAM and InnoDB, which normally do not reuse sequence values.”

Re: sed_cleaner

Version 0.3 released

Adds…

  • …a small scripting module to allow you to record and perform your favourite cleanups/pref settings

Simply work out your must-have settings and record them into the example cleanups.php file. Include this in the textpattern directory of your standard installation and when you activate sed_cleaner it will perform the cleanups you have specified/scripted in cleanups.php after it has done its standard cleanups.

Re: sed_cleaner

Thank Steve! Very nice!
Is it possible to put in the same directory as cleanups.php all the plugins text files and insert them in the same initialisation process ?
