2. CMS Builder 2.12 released
CMS Builder 2.12 released

We have just released CMS Builder 2.12. A major new feature is an option for opening links in an "inline frame" while integrating content from external sources.

Another new option allows you to display a message when opening or displaying links.

There are many other minor changes, including updated upload display code, and a new viewer function for getting records with custom SQL queries.

New Features include:

  • Admin General: Added "Program URL" field so plugins can easily find the URL of an Admin script.
  • Single Record Sections: Now automatically ignore search queries (which previously caused errors when using includes).
  • Plugins: New filters added, including listHeader_checkAll and listPage_footer.
Read the complete changelog and download the latest CMS Builder upgrade.
3. New Plugin: Website Comments
New Plugin: Website Comments<

Our new Website Comments plugin lets you add "Comments" to any page or section on your website. This plugin makes it possible to post comments in minutes, rather than hours. Copy and paste a single block of PHP code into your pages and see a comments box, comments list, and email subscription feature instantly appear.

Website Comments builds off of the "Website Membership" plugin, and adds to its functionality. All website visitors can view and browse comments, website members can post comments or email subscribe to comment threads, and website administrators can receive email notifications of new posts. Members only comments helps build a site community, prevents spam from unknown users, and lets your comments section operate without a moderator.

Website Comments features include:

  • Example code for three types of comments pages.
  • Facebook-style dates for posted comments: "A few seconds ago", "about an hour ago", etc.
  • Email templates that are easily modified in the CMS.
  • Multiple supported "themes", allowing you to display comment sections in different styles on the same site.

Back in July, we moved from the Commercial Drive area to downtown Vancouver. We are loving our new digs! Now we are more centrally located for everyone and we have windows that open.

Featured Consulting site: 2020stock.com

Through our consulting department we work on a huge variety of web site projects. We love consulting work because it gives us the opportunity to flex our programming muscles, and to design and build new tools. The 2020stock.com project included a lot of cool functionality and we are really happy with the result.

The 2020stock.com site is a huge database of royalty free images for print, web, or mobile projects. Select 20 images for 20 dollars and download your images as high resolution files. Registered users can access and download previous collections for up to 6 months after their initial purchase.

Enter Keywords to search by category, or refine your image search using a variety of filters, including Photo, Vector, Illustration, Black and White and/or Color. Registered users get a "My Images" page, where they can keep track of purchased images and view or display their image collections.

Here are some the site features developed by interactivetools.com:

  • "Drag & Drop" script - Add images to your bin by dragging and dropping.
  • Thumbnail Hover Effect - Hover over any thumbnail to view a larger image.
  • Custom Search - Searching by type, colour, category, and even shape simplifies your image search.
  • PayPal Pro - Our PayPal Pro setup is a safe, secure and easy way to purchase images.
  • My Images Page - Registered members can view, display, and organize all of their purchased images on one page.
