Just posting this here in case anyone misses it on the forums. If you use my arc_meta plugin or are testing Textpattern 4.6 I'd really appreciate some help testing the next version of arc_meta. It's currently in beta in preparation for Textpattern 4.6's release.
tl;dr: I propose SWF upload support in Textpattern be deprecated. Here's why:
* SWF files aren’t images * the Textpattern image tag doesn’t apply to SWF files, and provides invalid embed code * SWF files can be uploaded and managed on the Files panel should site admins require them
+Stef Dawson has recommend a straw poll here, so this is it.
[ ] Deprecate SWF upload support via the images panel [ ] Do not deprecate SWF upload support via the images panel
Back in 2010, when +Phil Wareham created the thread, I think it was possible to bypass Textpattern's file_download URL schema, but I think that changed for security reasons when the files directory got its own .htaccess.
When I posted in April, I forgot to subscribe to the thread. So I missed Phil's reply until now. Sorry, Phil!
Does anyone know if there's a way to configure Textpattern so that the files it serves can be opened in the browser?
Lors du dépôt sur le serveur, les noms des fichiers sont contrôlés de façon à ce qu'il n'y ait pas de doublon alors que les images sont renommées d'office avec leur identifiant de base de données.
Voici mes questions : * Pourquoi images et fichiers ne sont-ils pas traités de la même façon ? * Y a-t-il un risque, après l'upload d'une image, à rétablir son nom réel dans le système de fichiers sans toucher à la base de données ?
I'm sure once +Stef Dawson's theme "engine" stuff is released in core (4.6, but maybe 4.7) and the community starts producing themes under the "core" way of things, it will become more clear where the preferred themes repo will be. The supposed placeholder is at themes.textpattern.com, which certainly reads better from a brand and usability standpoint.
But until there's an actual theme engine in core, and subsequently an indication where the core team might like to house themes designed the core way, I don't see any reason not to use TXP:themes (despite the poor branding).
In that case, however, be prepared for a big ruckus if core decides TXP:themes isn't suited to being the final themes repo. The crystal ball says that's going to piss the site owner off. However, if he's made part of the themes site management process, and understandably so, he might like that and be more accommodating. So says the crystal ball.
Hello friends, my problem is this; I have installed the plugin ARC_SOCIAL_SHARE VERSION 1.3.2 but no pictures are shown after compatir … Look -> http://slacklinevzla.cuccfree.org/tp/ ! ! ! HELP PLEASE ! ! !
The original Textpattern on G+. This is it. A public and certified community brought to you by the makers of the CMS.
All aspects of the Textpattern project are open discussion here, from the system itself to project communication to activities concerning our network of sites.
In about 45 minutes (9:50 Paris time), I'm going to remove the 503 on monoutil.fr (site is in French) so the client can show it to someone he's having a meeting with regarding his product. We both know there are undoubtedly some problems to iron out yet with the presentation, responsiveness, and whatnot.
I would appreciate anyone who's got some minutes in that window, and notably if you have the latest couple of versions of IE and Android phones (I'm only working with Apple stuff and don't do much "web design" these days so no big test suite installed anymore), to give a quick browse around make notes of what you see being pretty bad. Screenshots would be best to help me see where the problem is, as well the OS and browser type/version.
After the 30 minutes or so (when the client's meeting is over), the 503 goes back up so we can check store buttons and such.
I really relied on default Hive theme for this, only changed as little as needed. So it may just be the parts I changed that are broken. ;) I've already got a few things noted, and will address them, but any and all else for comparison is appreciated.
I am going through a major update to my textpattern sites and want to import only the relevant parts of the old site into the new textpattern table. I want to import the "news" section. Is there an instructional out there somewhere? The structure of the textpattern table has changed in regards to the custom fields so the SQL would (I imagine) have to be based on calling both the custom field Name and the Section "News" rows. Anybody done this already? Will welcome other solutions as well. Thanks in advance
Our language translations for upcoming Textpattern v4.6 via Crowdin are coming along nicely - currently 14 of the 42 languages in the system are 100% translated ready for the release. Other languages still need work so if you can help, please get involved:
I had a weird hack to day from (Kiev, Russia). Someone took over one of my shared sites (Cpanel login) and updated my textpattern instance to the latest version!? Added a wierd domain name as well. Very quirky.
As someone with a couple of fairly image intensive websites, here are a couple of thoughts about the Images admin panel that kind of bug me.
1. The Next button points to the previous image. Every now and again I forget this idiosyncrasy. The logic here escapes me, maybe there's some historic reason for this, but when I'm looking at the most recent image that I have uploaded I just don't expect that the button that I am shown when wanting to navigate to the previous image is Next. Surely, Shirley, navigating from Image #100 to Image #99 is not Next. Hopefully that's simple to fix.
2. The Alternate text and Caption boxes should be the same size, ie, the Alt box is way too small. I tend to write my captions in the Alt box and use the useful Copy to caption check box. Once I have saved I have to go back and check in the Caption box that the text that I had written in the Alt box is correct. When you are captioning 50 images for a slideshow this is somewhat of an inconvenience. I don't think that one is too difficult either.
Actually, and this is a much bigger issue, it would be great if I could work on the captions in bulk, ie, have a thumbnail of the images, 50 or so, and just be able to transfer between the captions one after the other. Maybe this is just a suggestion for a plug-in, but I'm shortly gonna be faced with the problem of 20 different slideshows, each with 50 images.
I also have uploaded, sporadically, probably a thousand images that at the time didn't get given a caption. I now have the issue of having to look at each of the 3000 images I have uploaded, individually, in order to see whether they have a caption or not.
Fiddly little things but useful when you have to deal with bulk pictures.
Since we do not have a moderator's only way to communicate on G+
I see we have two requests to join the community that each of us has avoided approving (I presume you suspect they are spam requests a I do).
I just saw today that we also have three help requested posts that have been flagged as spam, but left in limbo. All three are by the same person. W/out clicking on the link, it looks spammy. Yet, two of the three posts specifically reference Textpattern related content.
For the sake of housekeeping, is it our consensus that the two requests to join and the three post flagged as spam are all in fact spam and we can delete them?
Moderators can easily communicate privately by creating a new Circle that includes moderators only, then using that Circle when writing a moderator-related post.
In fact the Textpattern G+ page could create the "Moderators" circle, make all moderators a "manager" on the page, and then moderators just palaver through that vector. (And maybe you find uses for the Page in the process, which is otherwise pretty useless.)
As for dealing with spam flags and other such requests... The way we handle that in CSF is appoint one moderator as the principle person who deals with it -- no discussion needed every time. However, we do have a private list of moderator guidelines in Drive to help them do the job.
I'm not sure about the notifications stuff. I know that "Owners" will get them, but maybe moderators don't. Might be worth checking your settings for that one. See if there's an option.
