Putting stuff from config.php into the web GUI - yeah, I thought of that already and will see what I can do.

Enable/disable per-user : thought of that as well and have it on my list of stuff to add.

Signing up for the service : I'm not sure why that would be required - you sign up for the site, you get the service. Actually, part of my intent in writing this was to make things 'hands free' for the admin. I specifically designed it so that signing up would not be required. e.g. I currently give users free galleries and they have to ask first for them because of the way gallery works, and I specifically do not want something like that. I'll consider it, but it will not likely be high on my list.

The default filename is there on purpose. I used the Geeklog 'sid' for this, which is guaranteed unique. As you can see the user can change it to whatever they like. I just chose a default unique name, that's all. So that the page can be saved as-is if desired. The only other choice would be to leave it blank but then if the user hit 'save' it would not save.

Sorry, i had a major server crash but have finally recovered. Later today I'll be posting version 1.2 anyway.

I've added the Geeklog search engine, and a few other little tidbits.

Here is what will be included in 1.2 released later today (maybe tomorrow at latest, but it looks like I'm on track for today)

  • finally integrated into Geeklog search engine
  • includes a function to make a "What's New" block both for changed pages, and page comments
  • more robust means of making pages private or public
  • more code comments for educational purposes

    anxiously awaiting, but take your time. Seeing as how you are fixing to release 1.2, I will not let go of the 1.1 I have.

    This sounds very much like something I'm looking for. Has anyone installed this yet? how is it coming along?

    Does the user have to have a knowledge of HTML to be able to use it, or is there a way of having a form-like page involved so the user can just fill in his/her own bits and then it appears on the page?

    Right now you do have to know some HTML. At very least you'll need to know

    <P>

    For new paragraph. Maybe for the next release I'll add something like the forums we are using has where you can click the "Text Mode" button.

    Actually, I have a "link" keyword that allows you to easily link between your own pages without knowing HTML at all. See the help file for details.

    So is anyone running 1.2 yet? Any comments? I will be happy to implement things for the next release.

    I'm making some great progress on the next release, and anyone who wants to try it out can visit https://secure.neap.net/ and leave comments on what you think. I'll install the forums plugin on that site for discussing my plugin.

    The next release has photos and a bunch of other stuff. I'd say 2-3 weeks at best before it is ready for prime-time.

    cheers,
    -Alan

    I should have 2.0 beta ready any day now for anyone who wants to try it out. It has a 'plain text' mode as well as native support for photo upload. See here for details :

    https://secure.neap.net/upage/?page=readme
    https://secure.neap.net/upage/?page=help

    It requires NetPBM, and I have not yet written code to get around the UNIX pipes. Nobody ever answered my question as to whether or not windows supports multiple pipes like this :

    command1 | command2 | command3 > somefile

    If not, then I have a little bit of coding to do to support windows. But should only be an hour or so.

    I also still have to write the upgrade. But if anyone wants to beta test it for me send me email and I can give you a beta copy.

    I just tried the new version (1.2??), all I got was a blank page. I Think I got it working now, but forgot what I did. I know it was editing the config , taking a line out, saving it, then adding the very same line back in the same place.. wierd.

    Can't wait for 2.0, and not gonna activate upage until it comes out.

    I am not sure about the support of multiple pipes in windows, I "think" it can, but it probably doesn't. Im sending my email to ya, maybe I can get it running right.. hehe

    In case anyone is subscribed to this thread, please see the new thread I started about 2.0 being released.

    I was going to do a random photo block for someone but forgot to include it. Email me and I'll write you one. It's only a few lines of code.
