  • Remove cedtag before updating to Joomla 3.1!

    My extension cedtag is now colliding with the internal component name of Joomla Tag! both are named com_tags! You wont loose any data by removing cedtag, cedtag databases tables will remains allowing to do a migration later to the internal com_tags of Joomla!

    A migration path is documented and will be posted shortly.


  • Please Note:
    • Opencomment Betado not migrate previous akocomment entries, it use its own mysql tables. But he final version will.
    • Do not use in production, it shall not break anything but we never know ;-)
    • Opencomment Beta do not require captcha (com_SecurityImages) [www.captcha.net], since it use a derivative of com_Hashcash [www.hashcash.org]. Robots or Bots can't submit entries wihtout parsing the form and sending at each request a valid serverTicket and articleTicket. Both have timeout and are encrypted to avoid replaying attacks. If somehow it wont be enough, I am currently polishing the integration of  com_SecurityImages and may also release com_askimet[Askimet]

    Install:
    You need to install the component com_opencomment3.0.0beta.zip AND mos_opencomment3.0.0beta.zip. You can download them OpenComment Installation, all beta version will be available there. based on your finding, I will increase the patch number: 3.0.1, 3.0.2 and so on...

    What’s New

    NEW  Support for RokBox 2.0, use under Rendering “RokBox 2”, instead of “RokBox

    NOTE: If you are upgrading from RokBox 1 and you are using the old RokBox syntax, such as {rokbox} or <a rel="rokbox" .., you can enable the Backward Compatibility from both the System and Content plug-in. Be aware that the Backward compatibility can dramatically slow down the loading of your site. It is highly suggested to convert the old syntax into the new one. Starting from cedphotofeed 2.6.3 you can use the Rendering “RokBox 2” and switch off the backward compatibility.

    NEW  A new settings in the administrator panel “Force”. This setting is optional, default value is auto detect- If you use custom URL for your hosting library (like visuals.waltercedric.com instead of www.smugmug.com), you may want to force the library instead of letting cedPhotoFeed auto detect the right host based on URL. You can either set "Force" = "Yes" in administrator panel system wide or add this optional settings now in every mambot. Here is a axample of a custom URL that use SmugMug:

    {rss uri=http://www.darbym.com/hack/feed.mg?Type=nicknameRecentPhotos&Data=DarbyM&format=rss200 limit=3 force=Smugmug}

    Concerning the size of pictures displayed when using Picasa

    Concerning the size of pictures displayed when using Picasa, the max picture size returned by the RSS feed is height="265px" and width="512px", embedded thumbnails being of size

    1. height="38px" width="72px"
    2. height="75px" width="144px"

    It is not in any way a limitation of cedPhotoFeed!

    NEW: The function that detect images in your articles is now clever and now support better fallbacks. It now support Joomla articles metadata (intro image and full article image). With the first option selected the system will always find at least one image to render as thumbnail. Priority is from left to right.

    • search in intro text -> use intro image -> in full text -> use full article image (NEW) it’s the default,
    • search in intro text only,
    • search in intro text -> use intro image (NEW),
    • search in full text only,
    • search in full text -> use full article image (NEW),
    • search in intro text -> in full text,
    • search in full text -> in intro text,

    If no images are found, despite going through intro text, full text, intro image and full article image, the system will fallback to a default image that can be set up per modules/plugins.

    NEW: Support for alternate images text and caption.

    NEWSupport for new resizing method:

    • inside: image fits the given dimensions from the inside, aspect ratio will be kept.
    • outside: image will be at least as big as X x Y, aspect ratio will be kept.
    • fill: image will be stretched as necessary, aspect ratio may not be kept. it’s the default resizing method.

    NEW: Support for scaling method, this determines when to scale an image:

    • any: resize regardless of the image size. it’s the default scaling method.
    • up: resize if image is smaller than the new dimensions.
    • down: resize if image is larger than the new dimensions.

    On a side note the code has been improved, no static methods, better decoupling, but that’s another story that interest only developers. Anyway adding new features will be easier!
