Common Module updated to v1.5.1
The Common module has been updated to v1.5.1, with the following changes :-

v1.5.1
  • Added option to "like" (or "not like") comments using thumbs up / down icons.
  • Added option to sort comments by date (oldest or newest first) and likes (least liked, most liked).
  • Added option to add a watermark to uploaded images.
v1.4.1
  • Updated to use latest jQuery (v1.9.1) and UI (v1.10.3).
  • Small code change to the page class means a replacement header.php is now no longer needed so the package contains the default DragonFly header.php.
  • Slightly more invasive edit to cmsinit.inc to allow content types other than text/html to be returned, specifically so AJAX calls can return JSON objects.
  • Comment and Upload classes re-written to use JSON responses.
  • Added date format option to the comment class.
  • Added callback option to the upload class so programs that use it can do something further with the uploaded file.
  • Fixed bug in delete custom field function.

Common Module updated to v1.2.5
The Common module has been updated to v1.2.5, with the following changes :-
  • Paths to files have changed so as to put everything in a single folder for easy identification (and deletion if so desired).
    - Class files are now in CORE_PATH.'cmsdreams/classes'
    - Javascript files are now in CORE_PATH.'cmsdreams/javascript'
    You will need to edit all lines that include files from the Common module to reflect the new paths.
  • Started adding abstraction layer functions to support possible future porting of modules to other CMS's, i.e instead of using DF's getlink() function Common uses it's own cms_link() function, which is currently just a wrapper for getlink().


Common Module updated to v1.2.4

Common Module updated to v1.2.4
The Common module has been updated to support / require the latest version of DragonFly, v9.3.

Because of the way the Common module hooks into DragonFly (replacing core files) it's completely dependent on the version of DragonFly it's being used with.

This version will only work with DragonFly v9.3. Earlier versions of the Common module will not work with DragonFly v9.3.

Website upgraded to DragonFly v9.3

Website upgraded to DragonFly v9.3
I've upgraded the website to the latest version of DragonFly, v9.3. Apparently this is the last version in the v9.x series before v10 appears (though when that may be no-one knows).

As this site uses my own common module / content system, and a custom theme, and as such is quite far removed from anything resembling a "default" DragonFly installation I was a bit nervous doing the update, however it was surprisingly painless and apart from a minor tweak to the common module it appears to have worked perfectly.

In the next few days I'll be updating my downloads and commercial modules to use DragonFly v9.3 as there is a rather fundamental, if simple, modification to the common module required for the new version.

Announcing the Content Module

Announcing the Content Module
I'm pleased to announce that a content module I've been developing and using myself for some time is now available.

This module is designed to handle all sorts of content, from text based articles such as News, FAQs, Blogs etc. to media based content such as Movies and Image galleries. When I first started using DragonFly CMS I was struck by the fact that although it was described as a CMS (Content Management System) it didn't actually provide many tools for managing content. Instead it came with a set of disparate modules such as News (still to this day pretty much unchanged since the PHP-Nuke version that it started life as) and Coppermine (still to this day not properly integrated as a true DragonFly module).

Common Module updated to v1.2.3
The Common module has been updated to v1.2.3.

  • Properly fixed the AJAX pagination function because it still didn't work as intended after the changes in v1.2.2.
  • Added option to jupld() to NOT display uploaded image after upload.
  • Added option to jupld() to add an [img] tag to an element after upload.
  • Changed jupld() so that the input field doesn't get replaced by an error message if an error occurs, and if an error does occur the message is displayed in an alert box instead.
