mojoPortal Released

I'm happy to announce the release of mojoPortal available now on our download page.

This is primarily a bug fix release.

Fixed Issues

Fixed an issue in the WebStore where using EURO currency with PayPal the amounts returned from PayPal were not being correctly parsed.

Fixed a bug in CryptoHelper that was causing an error in some environments when encrypting or decrypting data.

Fixed missing titles on some edit pages that were a side effect of our refactoring of page titles to give more control over them in the last release.

Downgraded YUI from 2.7.0 to 2.6.0 when using the Google CDN, because of a bug in YUI 2.7.0 where an FCKeditor inside a YUI tab sometimes was not visible in IE.

Added required field validators in the Content Style Template editor because leaving the element blank could cause the FCKeditor to throw an error.

Implemented a Content Delete Handler provider system to make a more consistent way of deleting related content when a module instance is deleted. Previously some features were not cleaning out their data when a content instance was deleted.

Last release we introduced support for search results highlighting. This brought with it a possibility for an information disclosure if the user had view permissions on the page but not the module. In the past only the page title was shown so there was no disclosure of the content but with fragments of the actual content now being shown in search results we needed to store the module view permissions in the search index in order to be able to filter search results based on those roles in addition to page view roles. In order to get the view roles into your search index requires rebuilding the search index. In order to not break existing search indexes I had to keep the default to not filter by the module view roles otherwise since the roles are not in the exisiting index all search results would be filtered out. In a new installation the preferred settings are in user.config.sample so that new installations should always filter by module view roles. Those who upgrade and rebuild their search index should add this to their user.config file: <add key="SearchIncludeModuleRoleFilters" value="true" />
This issue only affects those who have content on a page filtered by module view roles in addition to page view roles and only if you are using search results highlighting.

There is a corresponding minor update release for Event Calendar Pro to make it write module permissions also to the search index for events. Customers can download the new version from their purchase history.

Fixed an issue where our App Keep Alive feature did not work in IIS 7 using Integrated Pipeline mode.

Fixed an issue in our SmartCombo dropdown when using Chinese characters.

Fixed an issue in the Image Gallery where the Greybox did not work if the caption had an apostrophy.

Fixed a similar issue in the blog where a script error would occur in IE in the blog if Odiogo was enabled and the blog title had an apostrophy.

Previously some skins had corner rounders surrounding the PageMenu control but if there were no child pages for the current page in the SiteMenu then the PageMenu would not be visible but the corner rounders would still be there. We solved this by moving the CornerRounders into the PageMenu control and out of the layout.master. This way if the menu is not visible neither are the corner rounders.

What Else?

We now force the use of a plain text editor in iPhone because none of the wysiwyg editors can work in iPhone due to the way they create png images of the page for zooming. So even though the editor rendered correctly because javascript is supported, there was no way to click in the editors. So now you can edit site content, make blog posts or anything you like using the iPhone though it does require knowledge of html.

Based on user feedback, I implemented additional CSS classes and and example skin showing how to layout forms with the labels above the form fields. Whereas most of the skins have the label on the left side of the input, andreasvicklund-02 now has forms with the labels above the inputs. Also I think now all the Cancel buttons have been changed to links which was also suggested as a usability improvement.

There was also a request to add a per instance unique CSS class on Html content instances so that it is easier when you want to style a particular content instance different that the others. I implemented this so that there is a wrapper div with class=modulex where x is the module id. This allows you to easily overrid ethe styles for particular instance. I did the same thing for blogs and links and a few other places.

Updated Italian resource files thanks to Diego Mora.

Hey Joe, is it possible the next time to mention changes of values of keys in the web.config and why?
With this upgrade, the value of the key "DisableDotNetOpenMail" has changed from false to true. Because of this, I did not get any mails anymore from my site. I know there was something with sending mail for certain people, but changing the standard value causes errors for others if you don't mention this in your release.

Hi Stef,

That is good feedback. I did not anticipate that change breaking anything for anyone but apparently it did cause some issues for some people. You are right I should have mentioned that change in the release notes. I admit its sometimes hard to keep track of every little change that I should mention. I will try to do better but can't promise perfection as I'm only striving for excellence ;-)

Joe, I totally understand your striving for excellence . That is also the reason why I wrote it down, so others can see it and that can be helpfull.
From now on, I will try to check the web.config every time there is a new version of mojoportal.
Just to know what happened and to give some explanation on my own site . You will know when I have found something like that.

And like I said: keep up the good work.
