With Geeklog 2.0.0 there was a lot of modifications of existing code to allow for new features like child topics, and allowing articles to belong to more than one topic (for the full feature list see this post). With this in mind I created a feature testing list for Geeklog 2.0.0. This list doesn't cover all the features of Geeklog that needs testing but it does list most of them.

If you are interested in helping us test out the new version of Geeklog then please read the list below of some of the things that need testing. If you find any bugs please add them to our Bug Tracker along with the steps to reproduce the problem.

  • Everything below needs testing in one Language and multiple Language sites.
  • Also needs to be tested in MYSQL, MSSQL, and PGSQL
