Re: Feedback to: Textpattern 4.5.0 released

@douglgm

Some of these issues we are hoping to resolve in Textpattern 4.6 (more flexible core custom fields, uploading files/images directly from write page) – unfortunately when you rely on third-party plugins you may have to be patient whilst they are upgraded to work in a latest release (and there is always a risk that the plugin author might abandon development at some point – that’s no different from any other open source project).

That being said, we always welcome patches and suggestions for the core, where they are deemed appropriate.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern 4.5.0 released

Phil, thanks for the response.

Yes, I totally agree. Relying on third-party (particularly free and often unsupported) plugins for commercial projects makes me nervous and is an obvious risk. I have to balance this against all the good things I get when using Textpattern on a project.

That said, there’s always a sense of grief/loss when you open your toolbox to find your best spanner’s have gone missing…

I don’t want you (or the team) to take anything that I’ve said in this or previous posts as a criticism. I don’t expect you to take responsibility for making sure all plugins work with every release.

I find that I’m often having to “sell the backend” just as much as the front-end design work. (especially when the client has used other “more popular” cms systems.)

The objectives you mentioned for 4.6 can’t come soon enough and certainly help all us Textpattern advocates!

glz_custom_fields will definitely need an update for 4.5.0.

Had a tweet from Gerhard to say that he intends to update his plugin for 4.5.0. :-)

And Redbot’s on the case as far as the bot_image_upload and bot_file_upload plugins are concerned!

Just need some patience now! (Itching to get my hands on Phil’s backend!)

Wonder what Phil will make of that rather licentious offer ?

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern 4.5.0 released

Today, I have encountered an unexpected verdict of W3C Validator:

<form><input type=“search” value=”“ name=“q” size=“15” required> attribute cannot be “search”, and “required” is not a member of a group specified for any attribute.

I have <txp:search_input label="" /> only in my template form, apparently these two attributes came from the TxP tag. I am not sure, but I did not seen that error before upgrade to Textpattern 4.5.0.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern 4.5.0 released

Your doctype has to be HTML5 if you want to use <input type="search">, maybe that’s the problem?

Oh, yes, I have temporary switched to HTML5 and forgot… Thank you, Phil, and sorry for the false alarm.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern 4.5.0 released

Textile links are no longer converting to HTML for me in Textpattern 4.5.0. For example "This is a link":http://www.textism.com will be displayed unchanged on the website.

Furthermore, I receive the following two alert boxes when clicking the ‘View HTML markup’ preview button on the Write screen:

Internal error "preg_match() [function.preg-match]: Compilation failed: unrecognized character after (?&lt; at offset 5".
Internal error "Undefined index: scheme".

The resulting code preview is:

<p>&#8220;This is a link&#8221;:http://www.textism.com</p>

I’ve tested a fresh install with no plugins but the problem remains.

Update: dropping in classTextile.php from Textpattern 4.4.1 works correctly, if that’s any help.

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern 4.5.0 released

hidalgo, please set production status to “debugging” and try again. You should get more verbose error messages then. Post these here.
