Welcome to Geeklog Saturday, February 28 2015 @ 12:21 PM EST
It's that time of the year again: Google has announced the Google Summer of Code 2011. We want to apply for participation again this year, but we're a bit short on GSoC-sized ideas right now. So this call goes out to the Geeklog community: Send us your ideas!
Please keep in mind that a GSoC project should keep a student busy for about 3 months. Oh, and since it's the Summer of Code, it must be a programming task of sorts, i.e. pure documentation or theming projects aren't allowed. But other that that, (almost) anything goes.
Let us know your ideas in the comments, on the wiki (wiki account handed out on request, if you don't already have one) or the geeklog-devel mailing list. Help us find some cool and useful projects to attract lots of great students :)
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.
Mark Evans informs us that Saif El-Shere reported XSS in the bbcode of the Forum plugin for glFusion. Due to the shared history of the two projects, these XSS also exist in the Forum plugin for Geeklog. The Forum plugin 2.7.4 fixes these issues.
To upgrade from version 2.7.3, you need to replace these 3 files:
Then simply run the upgrade from Geeklog's Plugin admin panel.
