New Release Coming Soon

I just updated this site to the latest code for final testing before making a release, hopefully tomorrow or the next day.

You'll notice the new SiteStatisticsModule shown on the left side of the homepage. I borrowed the images for that from the DotNetNuke project, but the implementation is not based on theirs.

Any last minute testing that anyone can help with is much appreciated. The demo site is also running the latest code so you can easily help test there and let me know if you find any problems.

mojoPortal 2.1.5 Releasd

I just released mojoPortal 2.1.5, this is another easy upgrade with no db schema changes.
Users of MS SQL and PostgreSQL must run the stored procedure script to get the latest stored procedures.

This release includes:

the new version of FCKeditor
2 new skins contributed by Jason Wisener
Update from MS Atlas to MS AJAX Extensions (when using the download)
bugfixes for the general error handling, image gallery, and a number of other little bugs that were fixed
updated Russian translation (thanks to Alexander Yushchenko)

For this release I have also created a separate download for mojoPortal Web Controls, to allow developers to use some of our handy controls like DatePicker and SmartCombo in other projects.

You will also notice I have stubbed out some new documentation pages on this site that are currently blank. I am beginning a major push to improve our documentation so please be patient and check back as these pages will not remain blank

As always, if you have any trouble with this release, please post in the forums and I will try to help.

Getting Close to a New Release

We're getting very close to a 2.1.5 release.

This one will have no db schema changes, the main changes are upgrade to the new version of FCKeditor, 2 new skins, and quite a few little bug fixes.

Hopefully in the next day or so.

mojoPortal 2.1.4 Released

I've been continuing to polish things up before my push into the next major features so lately its been little incremental releases.

Release 2.1.4 is now available on the download page

There are no database schema or stored procedure changes, 2.1.4 is the same in the db as 2.1.2 and 2.1.3. (and 2.1.2 only had stored procedure changes since 2.1.1)


Added new Setup page for initial data creation. It will give a warning if the Data folder is not writable and won't allow data creation until this is configured correctly. This also
ensures no partial data gets created which was happening for some users before. It would create the home page but then error out on writing a module cache dependency file which would prevent the rest of the pages from being created.

Implemented new SiteMap feature and added SiteMapLink to skin layout.Master files, you can see the Site Map link at the bottom of this page

Implemented Skip Links navigation in skins for improved accessibility

Implemented PageMenuControl and 2 sample skins splitmenu1 and splitmenu2 which illustrate using 2 menus, a top horizontal menu with just one level and per page vertical menu for pages with child pages. This would be good for a top horizontal main menu with just a few items, but rather than a dynamic menu dropping down, there is a second menu on the left side for sub pages of the selected main menu item. These skins aren't very pretty, I just modified a couple of the existing skins to show the mechanics of using the split menu. I'm sure with a little CSS love they could look a lot better.

Moved DatePicker .js files from ClientScript to ClientScript/DatePicker

Bug Fixes:

Fixed bug where button labels were blank on ChangePassword page if not using shortcut keys
Fixed bug in Forum Notification Subscription manager, button events had become unhooked from some recent change
Fixed bug in MySQL/SQLite Data layers where Forum unsubscribe was broken due to incorrect sql
Maybe fixed bug in Search that was happening occassionally on this site, couldn't produce error on dev machine
Fixed issue where login from forum would not clear ssl on redirect
Fixed issue with using Forums module on home page caused bad links when the .aspx pages was not part of the url, ie using the default document for /

As always be sure and back up your site and db before doing an upgrade and post in the forums if you need help getting mojoPortal working.

mojoPortal 2.1.3 Released

I got some more things done today that I wished I had included in the 2.1.2 release so I went ahead and made a 2.1.3 release.

I updated to the new CSS Menu adapter release from Microsoft and by modifying the skins and adding an additional stylesheet I was able to get the menu working correctly in IE7 running on Vista RC1.

I also got the forum notification email modified so the link goes directly to the post which is nice for long threads.

Also found and fixed a few minor bugs that I noticed after deploying the 2.1.2 release to this site.

New files are available from the download page.
