3. New Plugin: Outgoing SMS
New Plugin: Outgoing SMS

This newly-released plugin allows you to send SMS (text) messages directly from your website. While the possibilities are limitless, some example uses include informing or reminding users of time-sensitive promotions, personal appointments, or important news.

Messages can be sent immediately, or queued to be sent at a later time, using a cronjob. This is useful for sending bulk messages without running into timeout problems.

To send SMS messages, an SMS gateway service is required. These services typically charge a few cents per message.

This plugin currently supports the txtlocal.com service, which is capable of sending messages internationally. If you have another gateway service you'd like to work with, we'll do our best to add support for it at no extra charge.

Outgoing SMS will:

  • Allow you to send SMS messages to anyone from your viewer pages
  • Provide an optional queue for bulk messaging
  • Manually send SMS messages using a built-in test feature

4. New Plugin: CSV Import
New Plugin: CSV Import

Save valuable time with our new CSV Importer plugin. It allows you to quickly and easily import CSV data files of any size or format into your CMS Builder database. This powerful plugin lets you make one-time imports, sync data with other systems, visually preview data before you import it, and much more.

CSV Importer lets you:

  • Save time getting your data into CMS Builder
  • Update duplicate records or start from scratch
  • Decide which columns match up with which fields without using a text editor
  • Handle enormous files by leveraging AJAX for incremental processing

5. CMS Builder Showcase Growing
CMS Builder Showcase Growing

Since we launched our Showcase of user-submitted CMS Builder sites, back in November 2010, it has grown to 40+ featured sites! The sites represent a wide range of categories, including: products, services, educational, promotional and personal. Each of the featured sites is being managed in whole or in part by CMS Builder.

All Showcase sites include screenshot images, about-the-site info, CMS Builder usage details, and the name, URL, and location of the developer.

Check out our featured sites at:
http://www.interactivetools.com/showcase/

Submit your own sites to the showcase (for free) here:
http://www.interactivetools.com/add-ons/my_sites_list.php

Our Showcase is a great way to promote your sites and show what’s possible with CMS Builder.

6. News from the Forum
News from the Forum

Chris wrote a custom PHP function to convert date/time to a Facebook-style relative times format and posted it in the forum to share. This code allows you to easily create dates and times for blogs and news sites that are frequently updated. It turns past dates into more human-readable formats such as "37 seconds ago", "about an hour ago", "Wednesday at 6:07pm", or "February 17, 2007".
