1. What's the buzz on Article Manager 2.1?
What's the buzz on Article Manager 2.1? If you didn't already know, Article Manager 2.1 includes a ton of great new features: multi-category articles, Field Separators, a new Template Editor, and improved program and publishing speed.

The upgrade has been a great success, and many Article Manager users are already making use of the new features.

Read what others had to say!



"All I can say is Wow! ...I really think that you have put together one heck of a program now.

Article Manager is now the program that I've always hoped it could be. Your method for implementing multiple categories is smooth, easy, and actually very graceful.

Thanks for making a tool that I've come to rely on over the past few years exciting, fun, and new again!

Thanks again guys, InteractiveTools truly is the best out there!"


Pete Lamont (from the forum)



"The pages seem to be flying and the search process is much quicker.

I also like the feature that tells us if you already have a publishing rule using a specific name and categories, and I like the new separators in the table Editor."


Joseph (through email)



"The upgrade is wonderful, and even though I didn't really need the multi-cat publishing before now I can't stop using it.

Thank you AM crew"

2. Ross Report - Article Manager: Fun with Images
Ross Report - Article Manager: Fun with Images Hi everyone,

Here we go with another Ross Report. This time, as you might have guessed from the title, I will be focusing on images. I am also trying something new: I will be following the same theme over a couple different Ross Reports, so there will be more image goodness in the coming weeks.

Image Styles
To start off with, there are three main ways to work with images in Article Manager so in this tutorial we will go over them. Each of them lets you upload images right from you own computer and they are all just as easy to work with. So which method is best? It just depends on what you are setting up. (Read More...)

Category Images
Next up we will be working with category images. This would be for if you wanted to have a specific image appear anytime you are looking at an article from a specific category. It's really easy to get going and all you'll really need to do is copy and paste a bit of code. (Read More...)

And that's going to be it for now. Quick. Easy. Powerful. Stay tuned next time for another round of image tips and tricks. Of course, feel free to let me know what you think so far and send in any suggestions you have on what I can cover in the next Ross Report.

Cheers,
Ross Fairbairn
3. Article Manager 2.12 - Maintenance Release
Article Manager 2.12 - Maintenance Release Since our last newsletter, we've followed-up Article Manager 2.10 with some quick fixes. The most recent release (2.12) includes fixes to the unicode conversion utility and the new template set.

Here are the details:

  • convertToUnicode.cgi: fixed a mysql bug that could sometimes prevent tables from being renamed properly on some servers
  • Templates: fixed articleLists/categoryIndex.html to correctly pass the category.num to the next/previous links
  • Templates: Updated publish templates with seperate footer file as an include to make editing the footer easier
  • Templates: Updated publish template headers with <link rel="alternate"...> to the RSS feed
  • Publishing: Fixed bug where a static index file in the publish directory would get erased when a new category was added
If you aren't already using Article Manager 2.1, you can upgrade to the latest version or Article Manager and get started.
