for sf 1.4sf 1.3 and Doctrine
Apostrophe is a content management system. Apostrophe is open source, and built upon the great work of other open source projects. That's why our apostrophePlugin is a plugin for the Symfony web application framework.
The philosophy of Apostrophe is that editing should be done "in context" as much as possible, keeping confusing modal interfaces to a minimum and always emphasizing good design principles and an intuitive user experience. When we are forced to choose between ease of use and a rarely used feature, we choose ease of use, or make it possible to discover that feature when you truly need it.
Before we decided to write our own CMS, we used sfSimpleCMSPlugin, and although our system is quite different you can see its influence in Apostrophe. We'd like to acknowledge that.
Standard features of Apostrophe include version control for all content slots, locking down pages for authenticated users only, and in-context addition, deletion, reorganization and retitling of pages. When a user is logged in with appropriate privileges intuitive editing tools are added to the usual navigation, neatly extending the metaphors already present rather than requiring a second interface solely for editing purposes.
Apostrophe also introduces "areas," vertical columns containing one or more slots. This makes it easy to interleave text with multimedia and other custom slot types without the need to develop a custom PHP template for every page.
Apostrophe includes support for media management, including a built-in media library that allows you to manage locally stored photos and remotely hosted videos. When media are embedded in pages they are automatically sized to cooperate with the page templates created by the designer.
Rich text editing, of course, is standard equipment. And unlike most systems, Apostrophe intelligently filters content pasted from Word and other programs to ensure there are no design-busting markup conflicts.
Apostrophe "engines" allow full Symfony modules to be embedded at one or more points in the CMS and participate in CMS page tree navigation. And custom Apostrophe slots can be written easily as Symfony plugins. Apostrophe's "virtual pages" provide a way to group together reusable slots of content not conceptually anchored to a single page in a conventional page tree.
Symfony's admin interface is fully internationalized, with XLIFF files already available in French, German and Spanish with more on the way. See the Apostrophe documentation for more information about internationalizing Apostrophe.
We recommend obtaining Apostrophe via svn rather than downloading tarballs. It is very easy to check out a stable sandbox project with svn. See the Apostrophe developer documentation for more information.

Changelog for release 1.0.5 - 17/02/2010
Moved the manual to trac.apostrophenow.org, reorganized it into multiple pages for easy reading.
Release 1.5.1 - 05/02/2011
This version contains fixes made since the release of 1.5.0. It is a stability and quality fix, consisting entirely of bug fixes and a very small number of minor features addressing obvious oversights. This version is a strongly recommended upgrade. Please note that tarball releases are not the best way to get this plugin and keep it up to date with fixes. A better idea is to use svn:externals to bring the 1.5 stable branch of apostrophePlugin into your project's plugins folder and just type
svn update regularly.
Fixes in version 1.5.1:
- Users with "Add/Delete Pages" can add pages without validation errors
- "Add/Delete Pages" and "apply to subpages" work properly again for view and edit permissions
- Fixed many issues regarding cropping, strongly recommend an upgrade for those who like the cropping feature
- Lots of fixes to apostrophe:migrate-data-from-pkcontextcms and apostrophe:migrate. The former now triggers the latter on success since it is required to complete the job. Please, take the plunge and get off pkContextCMS
- File slot now allows filtering by type, and lists only types that are downloadable
- New .a-editing and .a-normal classes replace .editing-now and provide a class for the case where the slot is not being edited. Much easier to customize slot styles based on whether the user is editing
- getPagesInfo never returns virtual pages. Helps with custom navigation
- Google Analytics is supported out of the box in Apostrophe via app.yml
- Cancel button works properly when editing media items
- Video selection fixes, various jQuery double binds eliminated
- Eliminated more usages of self:: to allow overriding of the related methods
- Applied gido's patch to provide a transition duration option for slideshow slots. Thanks gido
- Behaves properly if an embedded media service is deconfigured and a linked account still exists
- Admin generator theme no longer caching CSRF inappropriately, fixes issue for multiple admin users. Thanks Jeremy
- --verbose option to rebuild-search-index, it now runs quietly otherwise
- Small CSS changes to button colors and color selectors
- UI improvements and fixes to media editing
- i18n fixes
- Fixes to cache-friendly email obfuscation
- Removed obsolete columns from apostrophe:migrate
- Easier overrides in various places
- Many CSS and UI fixes
- Gave the user administration filter links better UI treatment
- css-colors-report task reports all colors used in apostrophePlugin CSS files, plus your project level CSS files
- Fixed a bug in the button slot where you ccouldn't set the FCK toolbar for the richtext
- Workaround for http://trac.symfony-project.org/ticket/8861
- Media type detection improvements
- Improvements to button.css, notably the .icon-right class
- Scoped the audio slot ui to be more specific to avoid css conflicts
- Media selection UI fixes
- Images can be selected successfully for a file slot (this downloads the original of the image)
- Clean off leading zeroes in a cross-browser fashion using a regexp. Fixes a bug with one-digit dates in the date widget
- Styles for our "do not edit, this is a staging site" banner are now included
- For the oldest formerly-pkcontextcms sites, create the media admin engine page. For everybody, make sure it stays published
- Moved jquery.jplayer into the /js/plugins folder, added it to the JS in BaseaTools, made sure to use_helper(a) in the partials
- Added jquery.scrollTo for the Cropper. When you are building a slideshow and have numerous thumbnails, often the cropper opens below the fold. Now, the cropper will scroll into view when you engage it, and return you back to you to the top of media when you are finished
- Updated the look / feel of the slideshow controls when selecting
- aString::limitWords now has a 'characters' option, which can be used to limit by characters rather than words, but otherwise behave exactly like limitWords (notably, all whitespace is converted to single spaces). The benefit is that methods that layer on top of aString::limitWords() can be called with a character limit instead. Set 'characters' to true and the 'word_limit' parameter becomes a character limit
Release 1.5.0 - 18/01/2011
- Manual cropping in the media repository. You can now select images that would not have met the constraints for a particular slot previously, as long as you crop them
- Page permissions completely reworked: you can now set ?view? permissions on a per-page, per-individual-or-group basis. Edit permissions can now be set on a per-group-or-individual basis. Inheritance of permissions from parent pages has been discarded in favor of explicit one-time ?cascade to child pages? features
- Pages you cannot visit due to a lack of privileges are no longer shown in navigation
- ?Audio? media type added, allowing you to directly host MP3 files with a nice MP3 player and an audio slot that embeds it
- Built-in support for the LESS CSS compiler make stylesheets much easier to maintain
- Media types are much more open. For instance there is now an ?Office? type for MS Office documents, plus text files and a few other related things. You can override these types via app.yml
- We added a ?File? slot and deprecated the old PDF slot. The ?File? slot can be used for any downloadable file format you have chosen to allow on the site, such as a Word document
- Vimeo, Viddler and SlideShare now gets the same ?special treatment? as YouTube when adding video (integrated search, support for pasting just the URL), and there is a simple way to add support for more such embedded services via plugins. We've also improved our support for "unknown" embed codes
- You can set up Vimeo, Viddler, SlideShare and YouTube accounts to be automatically synced to your media repository via a cron job and our new ?Linked Accounts? feature. This too can be extended
- Videos can be replaced with new videos, even videos from another service, without editing each slot that uses them
- A new ?Smart Slideshow? slot brings in images automatically via categories or tags
- Categories have been unified throughout the site; there is a single category admin page. This makes Apostrophe more consistent and extensible
- A single ?Upload Media? form now accepts all permitted file types, no more separate UIs for images vs. PDFs etc. Uploaded filenames are automatically ?humanized? to become a suggested title, saves a great deal of time if your media is already well-labeled
- iPhone and other cameras that save orientation hints in JPEGs are now fully compatible, Apostrophe auto-rotates these images
- Pages now have meta tag and description fields; Google doesn?t care about tags, but our internal search feature can leverage them to produce more relevant results
- Eliminated confusing distinction between ?template-based? and ?engine? pages (engines still exist "under the hood" for developers). There is one page type menu and configuration has been simplified as well
- New import-site task accepts XML files and loads a full-fledged Apostrophe site, including conversion of HTML blocks with embedded
images into a series of rich text and image slots in an area
- Batch import of all filetypes supported by the upgraded media repository (Word, Excel, etc. in addition to images, PDFs?)
- Button slots can now feature an optional rich text description for more flexibility
- Search has been enhanced. You can now search on specific fields (title, slug, tags, categories, body) and appropriate fields are given extra weight in ordinary search results. Example: title:?monkey mittens?
- The culture can be part of the page URL for better SEO of internationalized sites
- Apostrophe sites can be a subdirectory of an existing site (although we strongly recommend a holistic rethink of your site if you're considering this in most cases)
- Better pagination
- ?This Page? button eliminated in favor of separate ?Page Settings? and ?Add Page? buttons. You can now set all of the properties of a new page at creation time. Managing pages is just plain pleasant
- Many other usability improvements
- Full names and email addresses are now part of the user management system, not just usernames
Release 1.4.2 - 04/09/2010
- The most important fixes here are stability-related. This is a strongly recommended upgrade for all users of the 1.x series of Apostrophe or earlier
- Admin: fixed a bug with the cascade page settings form from not displaying when all child pages are unpublished
- Button slot: Fixed a few bugs with the button slot. If you set a title and a URL it will output a simple text link. It will also by default NOT output the image's full description, because that's the majority use case. If you want the image's full description along with the button, it can be enabled as an option
- Deployment: the apostrophe:deploy task now instructs rsync to checksum files rather than relying on modification times. This is critical when deployment happens from multiple development workstations. As a result we no longer need to clear the APC cache on every deployment, so that feature has been removed from the aSync module. rsync checksum is supposedly slow, but on modern systems performance is quite reasonable
- Deployment: new apostrophe:fix-remote-permissions task asks a remote production or staging server to chmod the Symfony-writable folders recursively to address the fact that umask() settings often prevent files created by Apache from being touched by command line tasks that need to do things like rebuilding the search index or syncing media content. Use this task to fix permissions "as Apache" without root access
- Documentation: README updated
- Documentation: package.xml.tmpl updates
- Engine page routing fixes
- Media: don't try to calculate dimensions if PDF preview is turned off. With netpbm turned off we can't do PDF preview and shouldn't try to fetch the dimensions, which are unknown
- Media: never return attributes for logged-out users in the media repository. We might have to revisit this if we decide to offer public filters of some sort that are attribute-based, but right now our attributes are designed for the image selection/management experience and should never be active after you log out. This was not a security hole, just a source of confusion
- Search: fixed bug with clear search button
- Search: new apostrophe:optimize-search-index task should be run nightly to reoptimize the Zend Search index
- Security: the app_aMedia_admin_credential and app_aMedia_upload_credential options were hardcoded to media_admin and media_upload in a bunch of places. All of these cases have been fixed to respect app.yml so you can change the media credentials if you wish
- Security: fixed security of aSync module, since it has its own password system it doesn't make sense to lock it with security.yml (also it is disabled by default)
- Stability: wrapped tree lock calls around page creation and deletion to address the fact that Doctrine doesn't seem to have concurrency locks for nested set operations. We had previously locked reorganize operations for similar reasons but did not realize that the fundamental insert and delete operations did not have locks either (transactions do not address the same issue)
- Stability: the repair-tree task has been overhauled. The task now uses PDO to avoid memory limitations of Doctrine, and is very fast now. There is now a method option which can be set to list or slug. The list option (well-tested) doesn't reorganize a messed-up page tree, but it does correct any errors in lft and rgt values such that it is now safe to manually reorganize it. The slug option infers the page tree from page slugs; this discards order of pages at the same level and doesn't work well if you heavily edit your slugs. A third approach is to specify the csv option, which should be set to a file containing a CSV dump with id, lft, rgt and level values (in that order, with no header) from a known-good database. Pages that did not exist in that good database become archived children of the homepage for easy cleanup in 'reorganize.' See the verbose help for the task for an example of how to create such a CSV file from a known-good backup
- Toolkit: don't allow whitespace to balloon in repeated calls to aHtml::simplify()
- Toolkit: added PEAR's Date module to 1.4 branch of apostrophe for use in the blog plugin
- UI: icon fixes
- UI: fixed an IE bug w/ pagination buttons
Release 1.4.1 - 06/08/2010
- Admin: aUserAdmin and aGroupAdmin now use a filter subclass that removes most fields, preventing explosive memory use when interesting relations are added. You can override to change this
- Browser: cross-browser cleanup
- CSS: CSS cleanup
- CSS: Fixed bug where the media library was ignoring use_bundled_stylesheet
- CSS: fixed slideshow CSS scoping
- Configuration: app_a_default_published added as a more intuitive alternative to app_a_default_on
- Development: aArray::isFlat checks whether an array is a flat array: numerically indexed by consecutive integers starting from zero, no ifs ands or buts
- Development: aDate::mysql() method takes a PHP timestamp, MySQL datetime or MySQL date (defaulting to now) and returns a MySQL datetime format string suitable for calling setCreatedAt() or similar. Takes advantage of aDate::normalize() & centralizes that pesky date() format string for MySQL in one place
- Development: aText::limitWords(): changed ellipsis from three periods to the unicode character
- Development: getRealPage fixed: no longer returns the "global" page if there is no real page
- Development: updated aHtml::limitWords to accept the append_ellipsis option that aString::limitWord already accepts
- Email: single or double quotes in the label of an obfuscated mailto link no longer show up with slashes in front of them in the page
- Engines: Fixed an issue with the page property of engine action classes
- Engines: aDoctrineRoute now also supports passing engine-slug as a parameter.
- Engines: engine-slug parameter now pops the target engine page properly. Thanks to Avi Block
- FCK: FCK layout improvements
- FCK: turned off the StartupFocus parameter in the FCK config we bundle with Apostrophe, which either didn't work at all or created problems depending on context
- Feed Slot: fixed a bug with the title being a link in the feedItem template
- Feed Slot: now accepts an itemTemplate similar to the slideshowItemTemplate
- Feed Slot: titles as links now work as expected in the feed slot
- Feed Slot: updated the aFeed slot to accept options for passing attributes and styles through the feed in addition to just markup
- Feed slot: posts limit option correctly passed as a number
- I18N: removed all of the text transform styles from the plugin. Those we like are now in the sandbox where you can easily remove them for better I18N
- Markup: Fixed accessibility and standard compliance bugs (a few compliance issues remain)
- Markup: editPdfSuccess markup corrected
- Markup: editVideoSuccess and _editImage partial markup corrected
- Media: Added aMediaItem::getImgSrcUrl method
- Media: Deprecated use of actual_slug to bring users back from media repository in favor of actual_url; fixed our own examples
- Media: added width and height attributes to the image tag output by getEmbedCode in PluginaMediaItem.class.php. This speeds up rendering for all browsers across the board
- Media: all media slots (when in areas, not as singleton slots) now display a placeholder div where appropriate
- Media: alphabetized media categories in the multiple select drop down
- Media: fixed error with slideshows in global and virtual pages, associated with fixed bug in aTools::getRealPage()
- Media: fixed undefined index error in slideshow slot when no width parameter is specified
- Media: gd backend now recognizes more cases where an image need not be modified, which preseves transparency and improves performance
- Media: ghostscript automatically killed after 5 seconds if it is not able to determine PDF dimensions in that time. Works around ghostscript bugs with occasional slightly dodgy PDFs
- Navigation: Tab and accordion navigation now outputs ancestor classes consistently
- Navigation: better support for the "unpublish an ancestor to create pages that are not visible in navigation elsewhere in the site" technique
- Navigation: fixed bug in accordion navigation that caused improper ordering classes to be placed on nav-items when archived pages also existed in navigation element
- Navigation: getAccordionInfo no longer returns archived ancestors when $livingOnly is true
- Navigation: getAccordionInfo works in all situations
- Navigation: getAncestorsInfo now has an optional $livingOnly flag to return only ancestors that are not archived
- Performance: new app_a_search_hard_limit option prevents out of memory errors when searching very large sites. If you have 1,000's of pages see the documentation for more information about how to set this
- Refactoring: $aPageTable->checkUserPrivilegesBody() is the core privilege checker method; extend this, calling the base version and adding your own checks, and you won't have to worry about caching or rewriting privilege names, both of which are taken care of by the checkUserPrivileges method first
- Refactoring: Fixed missing parent::configure() calls in the media subtype forms. Now you can modify the behavior of all media subtype forms by editing the configure() method of the aMediaItemForm class at project level
- Refactoring: aPageTable::checkPrivileges is now a wrapper around $aPageTable->checkUserPrivileges(), which is easier to extend without static method inheritance problems
- Refactoring: all form classes and many other classes, such as aTools, now extend a Basea* class so you can override them and extend the base to avoid duplicating code
- Refactoring: the privileges portion of the page settings form is broken out to a single allPrivileges partial so that you can easily override that to add or remove parts of it when templating out the page settings form
- Samples: removed twoColumnTemplate from app.yml sample
- Search: Zend Lucene can throw exceptions if it doesn't like search syntax. Catch the exceptions and report no results
- Search: category names now trigger search matches in the media repository
- Search: don't let workloads requested by consecutive failed invocations of rebuild-search-index build up a backlog of redundant indexing to be done
- Security: breadcrumb partial no longer outputs archived pages when logged out
- Security: checkUserPrivileges is now responsible for converting 'edit' to 'edit|manage' in one consistent place
- Security: cleaned up logic determining when "this page" button and its contents are rendered. Editors and managers can use "this page" properly
- Security: consistent presentation of permissions option in media type forms
- Security: custom secureSuccess message in sandbox project when you are logged in with insufficient permissions, behaves like a 404 by default
- Security: don't show the heading for the page permissions area if both privilege widgets are disabled for this user
- Security: explicit permissions are not checked for virtual pages (this introduced DQL bugs granting everyone edit permissions to them, you should be using the 'edit' flag to a_area or a_slot to programmatically determine who has rights to a virtual page)
- Security: improved privilege cache
- Signin: removed remember me button from the signin form partial since its default behavior in sfDoctrineGuardPlugin is not what users expect (i.e. it doesn't work)
- Slots: Added an aUI call after slot is saved to reactivate buttons etc.
- Slots: app_a_new_slots_top option now works properly. Thanks to martin79
- Slots: editing-now class now removed from slots properly after save
- Slots: slots can now be nested more deeply, often needed in the blog plugin
- Slugs: Add checks and fixes when renaming a page creates a slug conflict
- Slugs: Fixed bug that caused engines to not work properly with utf-8 slugs
- Slugs: leading slash required when editing slugs
- Slugs: new require_leading_slash option to aValidatorSlug
- Testing: minor tweaks to the functional testing methods
- Variants: The new app_a_allowed_slot_variants setting determines which slot variants are permitted by default. You can always override it with an explicit allowed_variants option in an a_slot or a_area call
Release 1.4.0 - 25/05/2010
- Hooray, you can link directly to an engine page just by passing an engine-slug parameter as one of your route parameters in link_to and url_for! No more aRouteTools::pushTargetEnginePage() (although that is still occasionally useful and fully supported).
- No more hardcoded routing.yml in apostrophePlugin to break people's backend apps. Instead we have a second event which registers when app_a_admin_routes_register is set (that defaults to true), and registers routes for the various admin modules only if they are actually enabled. Much more conservative.
- Added the ability to now specify a slideshowItemPartial.php using the slot options. This adds a boatload of flexibility for not overriding the plugin at the project level, but instead enhancing it. It also integrates well with Variants. I switched the compact slideshow to use this technique and it works great.
- a_get_option($options, 'height', 500) replaces isset($optionsheight) ? $optionsheight : 500. The former is much less bug-prone and friendlier in templates, which is important because the defaults for a presentation-related option are a presentation decision and therefore should be in the view layer (the template), but view code shouldn't be complicated to understand.
- Refactored permissions checks from aPage to aPageTable
- Improved handling of virtual pages in search results
- No more 404 errors if you click upload without selecting any images, you get a reasonable validation error message instead
- new apostrophe:import-files task pulls in JPEGs, GIFs, PNGs and PDFs in the specified folder, which defaults to web/uploads/media_import. Then it REMOVES those files from that folder.
- Refactored SQL migration conveniences to aMigrate where they can be used by migration hooks in other plugins that listen to the apostrophe:migrate event
- Added Fabien's workaround for plugin configuration initialize methods being invoked twice (this is a Symfony issue)
- The media repository now behaves reasonably when PDFs are uploaded to a server that can't render previews of PDFs. An icon is substituted, rather than a fake rendering of the PDF, and the format field is set properly. Much better. Hit this with Jake and John this morning. The preview icon is chosen based on the format and is not hardcoded to PDF. You can reliably check for a nonrenderable media item by checking whether $mediaItem->getWidth() is null.
- If we got valid image info, the image size is less than 1024x768, gd is enabled, and gd supports the image type, always use gd.
- edit = false for slot options is no longer ignored when logged in as an admin
- The various get*Info methods that return information about related pages now include the page template. This is handy when you want to link to an ancestor page in a special way if it is a landing page.
- New aImageConverter::supportsInput($extension) method allows you to check whether aImageConverter can import a particular image format on this system. Mainly used to check for pdf support.
- New default behavior of navigation components is appropriate for use on large sites with many pages. On small sites it may be slightly slower, in which case you can set app_a_many_pages to false to get the old "fetch the entire page tree and reuse it in each navigation component as needed" behavior back.
- Tabbed navigation now accepts urls from external sites as extra options
- Use aTools::isPotentialEditor to determine when to include history browser div.
- Pretty signficant changes to the history browser. The history browser now has its own close button instead of piggy-backing on the area cancel button. The area cancel button has now gone away completely because we use the nifty dropdown for Add Slot. And History has it's own set of controls.
- fixed bug that caused the icons to disappear from the addSlot dropdown
- changed the aAdmin assets file to look for our jQ UI that comes bundled with apostrophe rather than the Lightness UI bundled with jQuery reloaded
- getPeerInfo now works properly when the current page is the home page
- Allow 1000 character slugs to handle importing existing sites with deep structure. That's the practical limit with MySQL. Carefully specify the index length so MySQL actually pays attention to this.
- Warning comments before various API methods in aPage explaining the need to get the page properly with retrievePageBySlugWithSlots() first. TODO: document this entire subject in the manual.
- One can now specify whether the slot should go to the top or bottom of the area when adding a slot with newAreaVersion (TODO: document this method generally and this option particularly)
- Removed some obsolete, noisy logging calls
- the admin generator form markup was outdated and did not reflect the form markup we use via the formFormatter so we updated it to be that way.
- updated layout to allow for main navigation in non-cms pages
- made normal and alt page settings button icons
- revised page settings icons, smaller and brighter
- changed delete and history buttons to be flagging buttons with white backgrounds, big visual clutter improvement
- cleaned up history icon, still should probably be redone
- adjusted styling on button flag-left and flag-right
- new page settings icons
- added icons for the reorganize tree to display which engines pages are using
- created a brand new awesome a-btn.mini button (its rad)
Release 1.0.12 - 09/04/2010
- Support classes for functional tests of Apostrophe. Our functional test parent classes permit fast reloading of the database between functional test classes via mysqldump. Support hooks for this are documented, we'll release that portion of our internal commit tool at some point.
- Language switcher no longer uses a-controls class, I created a separate CSS class for it to avoid breaking functional tests that check whether the user sees controls they shouldn't.
- changed background position for buttons to be compatible with the gradients, fixed incorrect width on slideshow arrows
- Merged further improvements to functional testing from trunk
- merged new add slot user interface into the 1.3 branch
- removed the old tabs component in favor of the new aNavigation component we want people to use
- "Home" no longer appears in French when it should be English
- Related: aPageTable::retrieveBySlug() now fetches the page complete with its current slots for the proper culture. Without this there were too many situations where Doctrine's standard policy of refreshing a particular object if it is requested more than once led to unexpected behavior, such as missing slots or the wrong versions or cultures of slots.
- missing alt images
- restored button positioning for singleton slots
- CSS improvements
- fixed icon images for trash and cancel
- Warning caused by obsolete argument in removeAttributes call fixed
- When a-area slot is in an add-slot-now state, the z-index is increased to 999 so that the menu sits on top of everything else. This helps with stacking and overlap for neighboring elements
- If you click anywhere outside of the addslot dropdown the dropdown goes away
- There is no Form helper in Symfony 1.4 (this affected the aSubCrud functionality which is fairly obscure)
- Submit and cancel butotn look and feel fixes
- updated slideshow controls in template and css
- No text shadow on new add-slot dropdown lis, up & down slot arrows were the wrong width.
- Fixed double-escaping in rename page form
- changed padding on flagged button, was set for previous button dimensions
- Fixed an ugly bug with History Previews in 1.3
- fixed slideshow arrow background position
- styled blog error messages
- little styling change on the blog errors
- HTML "button" elements eradicated
- solved the annoying cancel button issue finally, removed the stray lines from aUI that didn't need to be there anymore, and renamed some special button classes to avoid conflicts and clarify
- Took the class off of the slideshow arrows because they're not buttons
- Our admin generator theme no longer mandates that i18n be turned on in your settings.yml (although it CAN be)
- added a unique class name to aNavigation for tabs and accordions
- added a unique class name to aNavigation for breadcrumbs too
Release 1.0.11 - 25/03/2010
- Whoops, last minute typo broke 1.0.10 plaintext slots, fixed in 5 minutes!
Release 1.0.9 - 24/03/2010
- A computer abandoned by an admin who has logged out can no longer be used to edit slots the admin previously edited using cleverly constructed URLs (only an issue on the same computer and if the PHP session has not ended). Note that you must upgrade your myUser class in apps/frontend/lib to extend aSecurityUser rather than sfGuardSecurityUser to get this fix (aSecurityUser is a subclass of the latter)
- Global or virtual-page media slots can be edited successfully on Symfony pages that are not CMS pages
- Unpublished pages no longer interfere with aNavigationAccordion layout
- Fixtures no longer use HTML tags our filters remove on edit
- Plaintext slots now autolink URLs and email address (obfuscated) as described in the manual
- Search engine updates refactored, search engine now updates when you save page settings
- 'tool' option to rich text slots now correctly activates the FCK toolbar set name you specify
- Slot save/cancel buttons now survive form validation passes properly (thanks to Spike)
- Date widget is XHTML correct (thanks Spike)
- Engines now work when the CMS is not mounted at the root of the site (important for those using the CMS as a subfolder of a site dominated by other Symfony modules)
- Attempting to attach a list of zero items to a slideshow no longer results in adding all items in the media repository
- Cross-browser and XHTML strictness fixes
- Moved lib/base to lib/action (you must symfony cc)
- Lost connections between existing media slots and media items when editing other media slots: fixed. Also, slideshows etc. are no longer removed on "cancel," and selecting zero media items no longer selects all media items
- i18n of over 99% of the admin interface (many thanks to Quentin, Galileo, Frank, Pablo and Fotis), new languages are regularly being added to the demo project's apps/frontend/i18n folder
- More convenient i18n of your site content (temporary titles supplied, all navigation controls work for pages whose titles are not yet translated)
- Aesthetic upgrades
- Superadmins can grant superadmin status
- Some demo-specific styles moved from a.css to demo.css
- Optional language selector in a/login partial
- Global admin buttons now have separate names and labels (labels can be internationalized) and a documented way to add and reorder them in app.yml
- Alpha channel is now preserved when rendering PNGs from a PNG original with gd (not available with netpbm)
- Compact PDF slot style, without inline preview (you can override this in aMediaPDF/normalView if you want it back and you have ghostscript)
- Better IE6 upgrade message
- Various private methods now protected for easier app level overrides
Release 1.0.8 - 25/02/2010
Fix for custom admin generator theme to address security problem found in symfony 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4.
Release 1.0.7 - 25/02/2010
Removed obsolete default layout for media repository; those not using the sandbox no longer have to explicitly override use_bundled_layout. Removed obsolete CSS files not used since the pk days. Media library cancel button is easier to see. Slideshows are saved in a way that doesn't crush additional data application-level overrides might be saving. All components and actions classes now overridable and inheritable at the app level. "Download original" and PDf viewing links now work properly.
Release 1.0.6 - 19/02/2010
Fixed a problem with slot editing - thanks to Gary Smith - recommended upgrade
Release 1.0.5 - 17/02/2010
Moved the manual to trac.apostrophenow.org, reorganized it into multiple pages for easy reading.
Release 1.0.4 - 17/02/2010
Documented slot variants. Fixed bugs in slot variants. Variants no longer have to rigorously contradict each other, they always start from the slot's options. Added the allowed_variants option for slots and areas, which allows them to be restricted to those that are suitable to a particular context, and also reordered, changing the default if desired (the first one allowed is the default). Removed 'mkdir -p' call that made generate-slot-type unusable on Windows. Various CSS fixes.
Release 1.0.3 - 13/02/2010
Corrected svn URLs in README. Added symfony cc (needed) and symfony plugin:publish-assets (just in case) to the README. Fixed add categories cancel button width, Fixed a-default-value class for selfInputLabel function, some css cleanup. Changed ordering of slots for bundled templates, fixed Edit button getting stuck on, changed button color to be more awesome. Fixed invisible video players when playing video directly in the media repository in a webkit browser.
