Just we released the brand new version of PortaMx This version is NOT a update for older releases.
Because we have change many, many things it's absulutly necessary to deinstall a older version before you apply this release.
The blockstable from v0.952 will be converted to the new version, the settings table is overwritten.
For a Upgrade from SMF Beta 4 to RC1 follow steps are appropriate...
1. Deinstall PortaMx (database tables left unchanged) or simple clear the modlist
2. Upgrade SMF
3. Install PortaMx v0.955
With this steps, all blocks are updated.
For older releases as 0.952 you MUST DROP THE PORTAMX TABLES !
You can make a backup before, so you can copy the content of html/script/php block into your new created blocks.
After successfully installation, you have to check and correct all Setting and your block settings (we have a lot of new options added).
Version: 0.955 (05.02.2009) - First relase for SMF2.0 RC1
! With the IE Browser, html and bbc-script blocks works not properly.
! The Highslide works not on Boardnew and Newpost blocks if a single or double quote in the subjectline.
! The dynamic visibility on board works not on topics/messages in a board.
! The CVT-Navigator shows now the last post in each board, if no new topic exist.
! The language detector returns now only languages, they installed on SMF AND PortaMx.
& Theme change/Language change not works properly, because the redirect url is splittet in SMF
& Modification for the dropdown.css removed.
& A lot of code optimize for SMF2.0 RC1
+ The User Login block have now a realtime clock, they can enable/disable in the Admin Settings.
+ The Download block is redesigned. Now you can use a "Frontpage Download" with a button in the Menubar.
To use this, you have to enable that in the PortaMx Settings Manager (Enable the download button) and
setup a Pagename for the Download blocks.
+ The Download block can now use the BBC code editor instead of the WYSIWYG editor.
+ New Systemblock "RSS Reader" added.
The Reader supports the formats RSS, RSS2, RDF, ATOM and SMF style, uses socked connection (no direct read)
and the content can be cached. The RSS/RDF format use the "content:encoded" tag before the "description" tag.
Sends the Feed a TTL (Time Of Life), the cache is enabled and the cachetime is set automatic, if checked.
Admin settings (with help) for:
* Full url for the feed
* Feed respose timeout
* Set the cachetime automatic from TTL
* Show the posts in two colums
* Show the feed header
*) Site name
*) Site link
Remarks: *) These option is only used for feeds/sites, they not send header informations (like SMF type feeds).
+ Single Pages added.
A Single page is any blocktype, is shown on the frontpage and called with a name. The name can splitted into
parts, so you can call more the on block at the same time.
As example you have 3 Page blocks, named as myblock.first, myblock.second and myblock.last. Now you can call
each block with the full name. To show all block with one call, then simpe put a "?myblock." at the url.
Page blocks also handled in the "Dynamic visibility options", in the action box and or the custom action.
In the custom action you have to add a "@" at the front of a Pagename and you can use the wildcard "." (dot).
+ PortaMx Admin Center added.
From the Admin Center you can manage all things they have PortaMx. The Settings Manager (4 parts), the Blocks
Manager (overview and a single screen for each panel), a livestream (latest news from PortaMx), a Versions
check (also for each file), you can download or direct install new versions or updates and a Language Manager
for install, update or delete additional languages. New versions, updates and languages are directly fetched
from portamx.com, so you need no manually action to update your PortaMx or install additional languages.
+ Added a special action to disable panels.
This is a wonderfull help for the Admin, have a block a fatal error (PHP blocks). In this case switch off the
panel with a ?paneloff=XXXX and the end of your forumurl. XXX is one of "all, top, left, right, bottom, front,
or page". To reset the paneloff add the action ?paneloff=none to the end of your forumurl.
