Re: mojoPortal 2.3.1.8 Preview Available

Hi Eric,

Ok, I figured out what was happening with the lingering tmp files and why I was not seeing them. It was only happening if the image did not need resizing, it was a logic error where after creating the tmp file we checked its size and if it did not need resizing we were just exiting the method and this would leave behind the tmp file. I have fixed this both on demo.mojoportal.com and in the preview package.

I've also made it possible to make a cropped image larger than the crop selection, so for example if the crop selection is 100px wide and 100px tall, and you specify 200 for the crop width and height, it now enlarges the crop. Of course quality degrades depending on how much larger the result image is vs the crop selection.

I will see about a way to delete files. I could possibly add a delete button similar to how I'm adding the crop link. I guess my only concern is that users could delete files that they did not upload and files which may be in use in some content that they don't know about. Maybe we need to add a separate permission for roles that can delete files so we can control it separately from who can upload.

Best,

Joe

Great news!

While accidental deletions could take place... it's better than having no delete option at all. Otherwise, sites will get full of old and outdated files and I know clients will begin asking how to delete files shortly.

I as well thought that a little delete link next to the crop link would work (maybe do an "Are you sure" confirmation). The next question would be what about PDFs and Word docs since they don't show a preview? Always a challege somewhere!

Re: mojoPortal 2.3.1.8 Preview Available

I've updated the demo.mojoportal.com site and updated the preview download (now its mojoportal-2-3-1-9-preview-mssql-deploymentfiles.zip)

It now has support fro deleting files. There is a new permission in Site Settings for Roles that can delete files so you can control it separately from upload privileges.

However on the demo site I've made a change via a config setting so that Admins can only upload/delete from the media folder. Otherwise users could delete skins files and other things that could break the demo site.

I've also added the contextmenu plugin in TinyMCE.

Best,

Joe

Joe,

The text slideshow feature doesn't seem to be working in the preview release. I also tried it on the demo site.

Hi Joe,

It seems to be working for me.

Note that there is a setting enabled by default that pauses the slide if you mouse over it, so if you were moused over the content it might not seem to work if you don't know about this setting.

Best,

Joe

I take it back Joe, it is working in Firefox but getting a script error in IE and not working in Chrome. Looking into it now.

Thanks to all who tested the preview releases! It really helped a lot. I've now made the official 2.3.1.9 Release.

Re: mojoPortal 2.3.1.8 Preview Available

Just upgraded, a really solid release here! Some bugs in .7 we're causing some grief but those all appear fixed now. So many great new options as well, just awesome! Customizing TinyMCE options is much appreciated, love that. The crop tool also - wow!

Bought you some beers, now site back and enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the beers! and all your great constructive feedback and bug reports.

I agree this release is a lot more polished than the 2.3.1.7 release, it had some bugs, not horrible bugs but nuisance bugs. I think you guys testing the preview releases and the demo site which was running the preview and providing good feedback helped to make this release really solid.

I'm definitely going to try the preview releases again going forward as it helped a lot this time.

Best,

Joe
