Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 beta 2 released

I updated a fairly complicated site yesterday (on my development server) and 4.6 is running smoothly. I am still looking out for edge cases.

I did find one plugin that no longer works, but it was an orphan that isn’t essential to this site’s operation.

I also noticed that the txp:article tag no longer accepts the id attribute.

Honestly, I should never have had that in my template anyway, but up to now Textpattern was overly permissive and I never noticed the error before.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 beta 2 released

Question: How can I compare the trace summaries for 4.5.7 and 4.6? 4.6 provides units, and 4.5.7 doesn’t:

4.5.7
<!-- Runtime:    0.2395 -->
<!-- Query time: 0.064879 -->
<!-- Queries: 327 -->
<!-- Memory: 3043Kb, end of textpattern() -->
4.6
<!-- Trace summary:
Runtime   : 338.67 ms
Query time: 13.57 ms
Queries   : 49
Memory (*): 9169 kB
-->

Just a note that there will be another beta at least before the final release, as I’ve made some hefty changes to the admin theme layout grid to better support RTL languages (basically, using flexbox a whole lot more). Should have beta 3 out at end of week.

Thank you, Phil!

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 beta 2 released

Another question: A fresh install with 4.6 sets dbcharset in the config.php file to utf8mb4. Is that something we should update when upgrading an existing site to the new version?

I don’t think so. If your existing site is running fine (with UTF8), there is no reason to change. As far as I understand it, utf8mb4 is an extension (a superset) of UTF8.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 beta 2 released

Longtime irk that I’d love to see changed… the “with selected”.
  1. I think it should be above the articles.
  2. I think there is clearer wording like “actions” or “work on checked” or “work on selected | selection”

On sites with a lot of content and a long listing where you want to work on a long list of selectionsTXP currently forces you to scroll to the end of the page.

I like this one much better…

Depends on your work flow… I typically scroll down the list and check one or more items. By the time I’m ready to take action, I’m actually at or near the bottom of the listing.

I see it more the other way on my travels around the web, but your mileage may vary.

That’s also my understanding. utf8mb4 is backwards-compatible with utf8, but extends support to emoji and other typographical horrors.
