WHAT'S NEW IN 3.0March 29, 2009 @ 2:50am
Hello Everyone!


Listed below the New Features as well as Bug Fixes included in this release.

FlexCMS 3.0

- New fully-featured WYSIWYG editor (Pages and Blocks)
- New file manager (integrated with both the new editor and directly from the control panel)
- Ability to edit an existing page and save it as a new one
- Maintenance Mode with customizable message and ability to still allow certain user levels access
- New timestamp function now added to all areas of the site, allowing dates and times to reflect a site based in a different timezone than the server
- Ability to set a longer page title for use in browser titles (while not making a mess of emails, printable pages, etc)
- Ability to set browser title, meta keywords, and meta description on a per-page basis (overrides site defaults if entered)
- "Edit" link now displayed on pages the user has permission to modify
- Usernames can now be looked up by email address (emailed to user at the address on file). To accommodate this, accounts are now limited to one per email address.
- New Templates

- New WYSIWYG editor for newsletter messages

- Google Checkout now available as a payment option
- Ability to tax shipping & handling charges
- Updated USPS pricing (January 2009)

Forum / Message Board
- Avatars added - Users can upload their own and/or select from admin-defined list
- Larger box for composing/modifying messages
- Pop-out boxes for easier image, URL, and email address insertion
- URLs in plain text converted to clickable links
- User signatures added (displayed at the bottom of all forum posts and on profile page)
- Ability to view all posts by any user (link located on their profile page)
- Updated user profile page layout, including number of forum posts per day and % of total, last message posted, and link to view all posts by this user
- List of threads in a board now split out into pages (number per page may be set in the preferences)

- "Edit" link now displayed on articles the user has permission to modify

Photo Gallery
- Ability to set the order galleries appear in by entering a Priority number (sorted from low to high). If the priorities are the same or not entered (defaults to zero), the galleries are sorted by title and then by date created as they previously have been.

Bugs Fixed

- Now fully compatible with both PHP 4 (4.3.0 or higher) and PHP 5

- Fixed problems with usernames containing upper case characters when using Lost Password and other areas
- Login link after successful email verification now works correctly
- Saving changes to Edit Profile to set a new password after using Lost Password keeps you logged in (previously required you to log in a second time)

- Registration pages have been adjusted so Mozilla/FireFox doesn't pre-fill the username and password fields with the current user information when creating a new user account as administrator

- URLs now properly converted to clickable links

Counter & Stats
- Newer browsers and operating systems now identified correctly
- Similar browser versions grouped together for more meaningful stats
- Reverse IP lookups now cached to prevent timeout issues with "Users & Guests Breakdown" report on higher traffic sites, and speed up the report page loading

Forum / Message Board
- Fixed occasional unreadable colors on board & category administration section
- Fixed errors resulting from certain incorrect combinations of board codes
- Forum code can now be inserted around a selection in Mozilla-based browsers, instead of just at the end
- Long URLs now chopped to a reasonable length so pages aren't wildly stretched to display them (link still goes to full URL destination when clicked)
- Fixed Sticky link disappearing on thread creation preview.

- Preferences dropdown for displaying actual stock had an incorrect label

Photo Gallery - Rebuild thumbnails function didn't work when the StorageLocationLocal box was empty
