Geeklog 2.0.0 Testing

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.

New Geeklog Version Checker

The version checker is the page that comes up when you click on the "GL Version Test" link from the Admin menu of your Geeklog site. It'll tell you whether your Geeklog install is still up to date - hence the name.

This page has always been a bit bland but then again, there wasn't really much it had to do or display. Still, there was this nagging feeling that it could be made to look nicer. And so we put this up as one of several tasks on OpenHatch. Rouslan Placella picked it up and delivered a shiny new version that has now gone live.

In addition to the all-important information whether or not you need to update your site, the new version also displays a nice visual timeline of the recent Geeklog release history, complete with a helpful "you are here" pointer. And all this is wrapped in a new and much nicer design.

Thanks, Rouslan! Nice work.
