One of the joys for me working with Open Source products is that others can see, adapt, improve and learn from my code in the same way I have from others.
Today I see someone has released a nice Tag Cloud replacement module for Joomla Tags.
Take a look at the full details here:
This article applies to the latest versions of Joomla Forms, Joomla Knowledgebase and Joomla Tags extensions.
It came to our attention some time ago that using green and red flags to indicate published/unpublished states was not very easy on the eyes, and especially for those people who have trouble with colour-blindness or other disabilities.
Therefore we have a hidden tweak in the above extensions If you would prefer tick and cross icons instead of the flags you need to edit the file:
And change the line that says this:
define ( 'bf_useflags', true ); // DEFAULT: true
define ( 'bf_useflags', false ); // DEFAULT: true
I dont have a full changelog, but a lot of bug fixes, including SEF plugin issues and other minor tweaks have been included.
Compatibility with KB and sh404sef/SEF Advance 2008 should also be fixed now.
And the other main issue was Tags and Layouts, these all now work correctly
Note: The main bulk of this release is to push out a new xajax plugin version. If, after upgrading FROM A WORKING VERSION to the latest version of either of these extensions you get a blank page then just delete /plugins/system/xajax.* and refresh the page – that will force a reinstall of the new xajax plugin – this is required on all sites!
Just a small note to let you know we have released the long awaited update to Joomla Tags. This update fixes all known and reported issues with Joomla Tags and fixes some core issues in Joomla 1.5.x that were broke following changes to the Joomla 1.5.x codebase.
This version is compatible with Joomla 1.0.15 and Joomla 1.5
Well its Christmas time again And while you are all busy eating left-overs I have been busy improving Joomla Tags with adding the very most requested features!. I have just released v0.1.1541 which contains the following new features:
We have also fixed every confirmed bug/issue with Joomla Tags, added better non UTF-8 encoding support and even fixed a load of underlying issues with bfFramework. We have also added the cool codepress plugin which allows you now to edit the components CSS and Layout files with colour syntax highlighted editors! All from within your web browser!
We hope you will like the new features – please feel free to provide feedback on the Joomla Tags forum
Just a small note to let you know that following a server maintenance upgrade we have disabled the server side (our side) of the automatic notification for Joomla Tags updates.
When you load the admin page of Joomla Tags, a quick check is made of the versions XML to check if you are running the latest version, if not a warning used to be displayed. Now you will not receive a warning (for the time being). You may however see a small warning like this:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /path_to_www/mambots/system/blueflame/bfChecks.php on line 126
If you see this notice then simply edit the file at /mambots/system/blueflame/bfChecks.php and change the following line at the top of that file FROM:
To make it read:
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this outage, but be assured that we will re-add update notification in a later version.
This is a very quick note to let you know that Joomla Tags v0.1.1096 Released has been released and can be downloaded by exisitng customers from http://www.phil-taylor.com/cc right away.
This is a bug fix release, which also contains the foundational database changes and framework work for the ability to tag on non com_content data (For example, tagging of Knowledge base articles or DocMan files) – Note: this is foundational work, these are not features YET!
Once you have removed and installed this new version you will see a database upgrade notice – just refresh the page twice and the tables will be upgraded.
Have fun and please report any issues in the support forum.
Today we have released Joomla Tags v0.1.808 and bfFramework v0.20.
Existing customers can download from http://www.phil-taylor.com/cc
This is a major release with some major underlying code changes and WILL BREAK YOUR SITE if you do not read this carefully.
If you have an older version of Joomla Tags installed you MUST remove the content mambot, and all Joomla Tags Modules for Joomla Tags BEFORE UPGRADING as the new version requires the new code in the new modules/mambots. You can do this simply by using the toggles in the Addons Page of Joomla Tags admin.
If you fail to do this your site’s front end will result in errors or a blank page!!! If this happens the quick fix is to delete the mambot and modules using the Joomla Admin interface.
Have fun with it and report any issues in the forum please.
Tonight we will be having a huge Joomla Tags bug marathon – it appears that some of you are having issues with the latest build (although 100s are having no issues whatsoever! strange)
Please bear with us just another 24 hours while we address the issues raised in the forums, and test and debug these issues.
I am personally working onsite for a major customer all this month so will only beable to support and develop Joomla Tags in the evenings – but we will make extra effort to try and resolve all outstanding issues TONIGHT!
Thanks for your patience.
Man are we on fire today!
From Joomla Tags revision version v0.1.607 , OpenSEF 2.0.0-RC5_SP2 is now fully supported !
There are a few additional steps to take to get around “features” (read bugs) in the OpenSEF RC but nothing major:
* Add a link in the Joomla Menu to this component – leave that unpublished (or published if you want)
* In OpenSEF Configuration -> Features: Turn off Enforce Canonical URLs
* In OpenSEF Configuration -> Components: Choose to Alias this component – this overrides a known issue.(Your alias can be whatever you like – as long as the box is checked!)
