*** Updated, We've released beta 4, see lower in thread ***

Hi everyone,

After much too long, we've just released v2.62 beta 3 (beta list members will get an email with a download link shortly).

Here's what's changed since the last beta (beta 2) 

  • Code Generators: A new "Category Menu" code generator
  • Email Templates: New built in fields for CC, BCC, and Reply-To (previously only available through PHP code).
  • Directory structure, based on communicate feedback we've reverted back to the old format, but with /cmsb/ as the new directory name instead of /cmsAdmin/

The other new features previously covered are: 

  • Over 20 new security enhancements and security features
  • Security: Added new "Security Settings" section under: Admin, General Settings
  • Security: Custom generated "Security Tips" for the current server and connection are now displayed in red under "Security Settings". Basically you just do what it says and it will help you "lock down" your server. Tips appear when needed and disappear if you've implemented them.

To upgrade just rename the /cmsb/ folder to match whatever you already have, for example if you're already using cmsAdmin just use that.  And the final step if you're running a previous beta is to just click on "Section Editors" once you upgrade as this will automatically create the new email fields and display a notice at the top.

If you're not already on the beta tester email list and you'd like to help beta test (you must own at least 1 CMSB license) you can sign up here: http://www.interactivetools.com/news/manage.php

Please post any feedback, questions, or bugs you find! Thanks!

Thanks! :)

OK ... I just got around to installing the 2.62 beta3 upgrade to check it out.  I think this is the first upgrade ever that has experienced problems.  I lost all styling and upon viewing the admin source found that it had prepended some path info onto all of the script links! ... /cgi-bin/php53.cgi

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/cgi-bin/php53.cgi/cmsAdmin/3rdParty/SimplaAdmin/css/reset.css" type="text/css"

What's up with that?  Any clues?

@RConring - The web path auto-detect code is failing because of the unique configuration of your server (/cgi-bin/php53.cgi being used to dispatch PHP requests).  Can you send CMS/FTP login details to dave@interactivetools.com and I can update it to work with your server?  Note: Email, don't post login details to the forum.

@KCMedia - I can't reproduce.  Did you see any of the errors or just in the log?  It might have been caused by someone accessing the site while you were uploading the new files.  Let me know if you see it again.

OK Dave, I suspected as much.  I'll send you the creds.

Hi Ron, 

I tracked down the issue.  The web host is actually setting incorrect values for the path to the current script and adding "/cgi-bin/php53.cgi" (from phpinfo): 

$_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] = "/cgi-bin/php53.cgi/cmsAdmin/admin.php";
$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"] = "/cgi-bin/php53.cgi/cmsAdmin/admin.php";

But... We already had code in /lib/init.php to work around that, but it wasn't getting called soon enough.  So I've fixed that and I'll release that in a final beta before we release.

Thanks!

Hi All, 

We've just release Beta 4 (beta testers will get an email soon).  

This should be the last beta with a final release early next week if no major issues are discovered.

Updates in Beta 4: 

  • Fixed path detection issue that would cause CSS not appear correctly in Beta 3
  • On Install - Improved network connectivity test, now suggests what to do for web hosts to fix misconfigured servers and detects IPv6 issues
  • Debugging - Added some more debug data to the bottom of phpinfo under: Admin > General > phpinfo

Let me know any feedback, and have a great weekend!  Thanks!
