You can already copy 4.8.6 publish.php file, awaiting its release.

Yes sure I can do that, or copy-paste the noted “fix” etc.
The problem is that the problem I saw is not on one of my sites, but a client’s site. Once you modify one or other file, you get that nice message in Diagnostics:

Some Textpattern files have been modified: …

Not sure I am confortable leaving it like that. Personally that is fine, dunno what the site owner/admin will think1, even if explained nicely.

The site is doing fine with Textpattern 4.8.4 so no real hurry (and potential changes are not depending on any new 4.8.5 feature). Runs on PHP 7.4.

I’ve set up a 4.8.6 demo for testing (will be gone after release):

dev-demo.textpattern.co/4.8.6/

Here is the MD5 code for this file in replacement of the current one into the checksums.txt:

Yeah, that would work to eliminate that Diagnostics warning. Thanks for the idea.

(I actually got a different MD5 value for the file I downloaded earlier and uploaded to one of my own sites. Calculating the MD5 is easy anyway: md5 path/to/file.ext)

If you’ve cloned the Textpattern toolbelt you can also rebuild the checksums en masse:

php /path/to/textpattern-toolbelt/release/checksums.php /path/to/repo/textpattern rebuild

Re: Feedback for: Textpattern CMS 4.8.5 released: bug fixes & improvements

This morning I did a second attempt at upgrading the site I mentioned above. This time, thanks to a modified publish.php and an updated MD5 for the checksums.txt file I was successful.

Interesting and noted, thanks. I have no immediate need for a mass change in Textpattern Core files, but who good to know anyway.

Re: Feedback for: Textpattern CMS 4.8.5 released: bug fixes & improvements

Hello,
updated two sites and there I used some „older” variables within txp:php for a side menu. Somehow the behaviour has changed, so I got this warning:
Warning: Undefined variable $pretext while parsing form ...

in this function:

                        <txp:php>
                          global $id_current_art;
                          if (!$id_current_art) $id_current_art = $pretext['id'];                          
                          if ($id_current_art == article_id())
                            echo ' class="active"';                          
                        </txp:php>

And active class is never used, because id_current_art will never be even article_id().

In History.txt I found only mentioned the pre-pretext_end callback.

The PHP version is 8.0.5.

Btw. on the Download page the Release notes are still linking to 4.8.4 😀

Yep, I have removed the (unused) global $pretext declaration from php() function, sorry. You’ll need to declare it yourself now:

    global $id_current_art, $pretext;
