WebsiteBaker 2.8.4 on the horizon
« on: June 02, 2013, 10:51:26 AM »
Dear WebsiteBaker Community!

As you surely have noticed, since the release of Website Baker 2.8.3 our teams are working at full stretch on the version 2.8.4. To get an idea what we’re worked on, I list several changes and new features.

Please note that I cannot list each of the approx. 300 changes here.

Maintenance Mode
WebsiteBaker now offers the possibility to put the website into a maintenance mode. Once it is running, it is only possible to see the website and log in to the administration area for the system administrator.

Upgrade script
The upgrade script was largely revised and now provides an upgrade from version 2.7 to the latest 2.8.4 in one pass.

Registration
You can now customize whether new users get an activation mail and will have to confirm it.

Pages Administration
In the pages administration has changed a lot. Here are just some of the new features:
  • The file name is no longer dependent  on the menu item and can be defined separately
  • Assignment of menu icons
  • The page tree is now much quicker for bigger sites

Class "Translate"
For developers a new class "Translate" is available. A detailed description can be found here

Class "Password"
For passwords the MD5 encryption was replaced with SHA-512. Developers can now use the function "Password:createnew ()" to generate a secure random password.

Much more changes:
  • Refactoring of the installer
  • Optical refactoring of the backend themes
  • Backend themes can now easily being copied and just the parts that differ from the default template being adjusted
  • Refactoring of user- and group administration

A detailed description of the changes you will see in the news about the release of version 2.8.4.

Thanks to the community and to all tester for many constructive discussions.

The stages of development you can track as before under http://project.websitebaker2.org/projects/wb28x/repository .
ATTENTION: This is a development version - it can still contain errors. It is strongly recommended to use this version NOT in a live environment.

Yes.
If you want to test it - have a look at http://project.websitebaker2.org/projects/wb28x/repository and download the SVN or download the current Rev. 1927 from SVN (a bit a "2.8.4 Beta" - but not offical) from  http://dl.easebox.org/wb_283_rev1927.zip . Of course just for testing, not for live environments - and let us know your thoughts and perhaps discovered bugs.

Looks very promising. Think I will make a start on a responsive admin template.

I hope that the Contact Page is working again, if not: why bother.

Which Contact Page do you mean? The form module?

Yep, that one they just changed, without any notice, and then it stopped working.

the Form module works without Problems - if you have any Problems - just start a new Topic?

I think i2Paq is pointing to the "From adress" which isn't sended, though it was in previous versions.

Like discussed here: http://www.WebsiteBaker.org/forum/index.php/topic,23820.0.html

@i2Paq i think you can better use MPForm (better options).

Regards

An exception only tells you where the error was detected, but not where the error occurs.
You use an 2.8.4 upgraded from 2.8.3..  so insert the following line into your config.php

Code: [Select]
<?php

define
('DEBUG'true);  // << insert new

require_once(WB_PATH.'/framework/initialize.php');

As result you will get much more detailed error messages.
And you can see where the error really occurs. Especially the invalid SQL-Statement which we need to locate the Bug.

here's the faulty query

Code: [Select]
Exception: "You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '[SEARCH_STRING]': query(); in/framework/WbDatabase.php
1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '[SEARCH_STRING]':
' WHERE `name` = 'results_header' AND `extra` = '' [1] => Resource id #7 ) ) [1] => Array ( [file] => /homez.517/ucaschil/www/admin/settings/save.php [line] => 395 [function] => query [class] => WbDatabase [type] => -> [args] => Array ( [0] => UPDATE `wb_search` SET `value` = '[TEXT_RESULTS_FOR] '[SEARCH_STRING]':
' WHERE `name` = 'results_header' AND `extra` = '' ) ) )


concerning settings/save.php
Code: [Select]
just after :
$allow_empty_values = array(
    'website_header',

 added
    'website_description',
    'website_keywords',

the Form module works without Problems - if you have any Problems - just start a new Topic?

This has been already done, read for yourself.

http://www.WebsiteBaker.org/forum/index.php/topic,23820.0.html

And No, it is not working in (a clean install) 2.8.4!

I've had to hire someone to get another module installed to get my sites working again.

if this issue in 1.8.4 is still there then it is a useless release.
