mojoPortal 2.1.2 Released

I just released mojoPortal 2.1.2

See my previous blog post for release notes.

The next 1.x release will happen when the new Firebird Data Layer is ready, stay tuned for more information on that.

As always if upgrading be sure and backup your site and db before doing the upgrade. If you have any difficulties, post in the forums and I will try to help.

Thanks,

Joe

Getting Close to a new Release

Hopefully this weekend I will make a new 2.1.2 Release

This release will have no schema changes (though there are stored procedure changes) so it will be an easy upgrade from 2.1.1
Some of the new things

  • Improved Module Caching
  • New CollapseLinkButton Control in mojoPortal.Web.Controls - this control can hide any other server control using cleint side javascript and css, you just enter the server side id in markup using the ControlToCollapse property. I used this in several administrative pages to hide sections of settings that don't need to be changed often
  • A new skin by Jasmin Savard, like the one used on this site
  • FriendlyUrls are now automatically created when creating pages
  • Blog and RSS Feeds now have friendly urls
  • Multi Sites Feature theme caching issue is now fixed and can now run multiple sites in a single application due to improvements in SiteMapProvider configuration
  • Users are now logged in automatically upon registration (thanks to Bo Rey for this fix)
  • Newest version of NeatUpload
  • Several bug fixes
  • The VS 2005 Solution now works with the VS Web Server, its no longer neccessary to setup an IIS application, just set your connection string and go

Vote For mojoPortal

mojoPortal is listed on a lot of resource sites but we have very few reviews or ratings.

Most recently we were added to the Control Gallery on the ASP.NET site.
We are also listed on:
CMS Matrix
411ASP
WorldOfASP.NET
123ASPX
DotNetFreaks
wwwcoder
freshmeat

We sure could use some reviews or ratings so if you are using mojoPortal, please take a moment and give us a review or rating on one or some of these sites.

and remember Vote Early and Vote Often

Support for Firebird Coming Soon

In the near future we will have support for using Firebird Relational Database.

Thanks to Gareth Goslett from South Africa who is the developer/maintainer of this new Data Layer.

We will first have this in the 1.x version of mojoPortal for 1.1 .NET/Mono and will follow up after that with a version for 2.x mojoPortal

Initial code has already landed in svn/trunk

Lots of other good things happening with mojoPortal that I will blog about soon.

New Site Design by Jasmin Savard

If you've been here before you most likely have noticed the new site design.

Huge Thanks! go out to Jasmin Savard from Canada for designing this skin for us.

The previous skin was really looking old school by now. This one looks great to me, what do you think?
