AtomSite 1.4 Widgets ReleasePosted in AtomSite, Release by JarrettV on 4/1/2010 5:17:00 AM - CST
This release of AtomSite 1.4 contains a new widget management system that allows you to personalize your site with ease. We've also improved the AtomSite Manager in many areas.
Most pages and some widgets have customizable areas. You can include widgets into these customizable areas to alter the appearance and functionality of your website. The following screen allows you manage those widget includes.
You can manage the widgets at any scope. If you include a widget into an area at the workspace scope, it'll show in every collection within that workspace. Also, if you include a widget in a master page, it'll show in every child page. Pages and widgets are built to target certain areas.
Widgets can also be included inline into the content of an entry. For example, you may want to post a poll or have a contact form on certain entries.
We have a new twitter plug-in that is included out-of-the-box. This widget can be included on any page. The widget can be configured to show X number of tweets. Also, you must choose a twitter user name that has a public feed. If you are running AtomSite in medium trust, you may need a special setting to allow outgoing web requests.
AtomSite now supports medium trust. One major change we made was switching the default logging subsystem. AtomSite will no longer write trace and error information automatically to a log file. If you are running in high or full trust you can enable log files.
Finally, we greatly improved many areas of AtomSite Manager. For example:
- Filter entries and annotations by category or quickly search them
- Filter users by role
- Create or update user
- View role matrix
- Improved support for multi-folder workspace mode
- Improved dynamic links on entries and annotations
- Better support for limited access by contributors and authors
- Better IE7 support and support on small mobile screens
- Install theme from zip file
- Customized CKEditor
- Auto-restart when changing certain settings
- Choose file extension of blog pages (default is .xhtml)
- Improved core plugin warnings
