Re: Lack of global theme association vs all other sections on logout

So how do you see the workflow of this profile mechanism being realised? Conscious of not trying to drown users in nomenclature. Especially given that we’re going to be thinking about how to expand themes to include prefs and plugins and (perhaps) content, etc at some point.

I can’t foresee any serious obstacle for profiles implementation – they are just stored sections/themes associations. Of course, the usual clean-up on section modification is needed, but that seems doable. UX is less clear, but separating profiles from sections tab might even improve it.

I like being able to set a Theme per Section

Me too, especially with potentially per section upcoming custom fields. BTW, the branch is up-to-date with dev, shouldn’t we make a point soon?

Yes. Just concerned about the lack of public tag support for the new tables and I think <txp:article_custom> needs retrofitting properly.

And we need to decide about the ability to have custom field posted/expiry. It is a hassle from a UI perspective – and, to a degree, programmatically – it’s just a case of whether we think it’s worth keeping that notion or letting fields be forever persistent and therefore unable to be phased out (only deleted, losing all data they held).

Yes, there is still much work on cf, though it’s taking shape. But I’m wondering about the current dev branch purpose: will it surely become 4.7.4 one day or just in case some nasty bug is discovered in 4.7.3? Should we add new features there or to cf branch? Can we use php 5.5+ features (native hash, array_column() etc) in dev, which means it would rather become 4.8?

To complicate things, we also have 4.7.4 branch, which must be fairly out of sync with dev now.

I think we abandoned the notion of 4.7.4 in favour of a shorter 4.8.0 release cycle with maybe a lesser feature set, pushing the big stuff like custom fields to 4.9.0. I’d like to put the new UI library in 4.8.0 so people can start to use it. Whether we actually use it in core from the get-go is something we can decide.

But we’ll need to release something fairly soon – perhaps when PHP 7.4 is out – to counter the issues with PHP compatibility like the mcrypt_create_iv thing. And we need to decide what the hell to do with passwords in both Txp (migrating to native PHP from PHPass) and how to handle the lack of PASSWORD() in MySQL 8.0. They’re both priorities to fix in the next release, imo.

ok, then we can go with php 5.5, fine!

This should be done now, though we can not (yet) completely remove PHPass. Dunno how long it takes to ensure that all txp users log in and trigger hash migration.
