Should we expect a beta, Stef?

Might be prudent this time. But, hey, it’s only a bug fix release… what could possibly go wrong ;-)

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.1 released

Having a hard time following the history and explanations here so far, but I think I got what Uli did.

Updated from 4.6 “stable” to 4.6.1 … everything seems fine except for a persistent diagnostic:

New Textpattern version 4.6.1 available for download.

But low detail output says:

Textpattern version: 4.6.1 (fb9a5683991545def3c704efce499c18)

which is also reported at bottom of admin panel.

I don’t care about the diagnostic as long as I do have 4.6.1 running.

You do. It’s just reported wrongly in the DB, which triggers the false update notification in the Diagnostics panel. There are no DB changes in this release, only file system changes, which is actually what has triggered the blip with the new updater code.

We’ve come up with a better system, Oleg’s on the case.

On the articles list panel, select one or more articles, then use the multi-edit widget to duplicate
Or
Open an article for editing, then on the right hand, below the save button there is a button to duplicate

[Duplicate] ?? what is it? how do you use it.

To further expand on what phiw13 said, when editing an article you can approach the duplication in one of two ways:

  1. Immediately hit Duplicate and get a clone of what you have on-screen.
  2. Make changes to the article first without saving it, then hit Duplicate which will create a new article from what you have on-screen at that moment.

In both cases, this happens:

  • The article is set to Draft mode. Because you don’t want it immediately published, right?
  • The article Posted date remains the same as the original article (unless you alter it of course or use the ‘reset to now’ feature), but the Modified date is set to the time you hit the button.
  • The article ID is appended, in parentheses, to whatever title you set. This makes it easy to spot duplicates in the article list and also gets around the issue of unique article URLs. You should change the title and url-title prior to publication.

For Forms, Pages and Stylesheets, the duplication feature works in a similar manner with a few notable differences:

  • Exactly like with Articles, you can make a perfect clone, or edit the item first without saving and then clone it. Whatever is on-screen at the time you hit the button, is what will appear in your new item.
  • If you duplicate an item without altering its name, you get ‘copy’ and ‘copy 2’, etc appended to its name.
  • If you alter the name prior to hitting Duplicate you will not get ‘copy’, ‘copy 2’ appended, unless the name you chose clashes with another item. In other words, the clone gets the new name you specified, as far as is practically possible.

Hope that helps.
