What does everyone hope to see in the next version?

Post by Tongara » Mon Jun 22, 2020 9:48 pm

The last release was nearly a year and a half ago, so I'm sure many people are excited for the next one...

But, I have to ask, what are everyone's hopes and expectations for the next version of the project?

I just feel it would be interesting to hear!

First of all the new admin panel created by franah, it's absolutely impressive and obviously a fresh new look for the main Leggero theme.
Every additional change is welcome

Both sound like great ideas.
Likewise, anything additional is welcome.

For next version the new desing for the admin panel.
For future versions, I don’t know, but I want to create a new leggero theme.
Have you got any idea to implement to flatpress? What do you want for the next version?
My ideas:
  • New plugins: Backup, Seo, entries Cover.
  • Theme preview. You can see the theme before select it.
  • New leggero theme
  • Theme, plugin and languague installer

If it's not too late: A by default cookie-free version.

If you're curious what's in the upcoming version 1.2 already: I recently updated the changelog :)

Massive bump, but I wonder how easy upgrading is going to be for users like me who've edited files outside of plugins, themes and entries (search form replacement, google compatible sitemap, etc, comes to mind). The upgrade guide on the wiki seemingly just advises the user to completely replace everything and then just upload their entries again, etc.

There is the advice about a single file at a time, but it is seemingly for small updates and bug fixes. I think it would be handy to know exactly what files are 100% needed to be updated between 1.1 and 1.2, and which are more optional.

I found a similar discussion on the old support forum asking a similar sort of thing (of course, this advice is for an extremely outdated version): archive/discussion/2960/flatpress-to-1-0-1-to-1-0-2-

Flatpress has a nice feature that can be found in Admin - Maintain, it is called Rebuild index :D

You set up a blank Flatpress without any content, then you can test your "optional" extensions/fixes/optimizations. If everything works so far, copy the following folders from your FP blog fp-content folder into the tested ready-to-use new flatpress.

Folder attachs
Folder content
Folder images

Do not copy following folders:

Folder cache
Folder config
Folder index
Folder users

and also don't copy the two files you find into the fp-content. Now start "Rebuild index" and go back to the Admin Interface. It should work for you :D

Please, and note that your "optional" extensions/fixes/optimizations should also be tested against PHP 8.0 :D

I'm not sure this really answers my question at all and pretty much just repeats what is already on the wiki.

I want to know if it is going to be possible to update flatpress by just replacing certain necessary core files, etc. That ancient forum thread seems to say yes, but I want to know if this is still the case, and if it is, what are the necessary files that need updating.

If it is not, then fine, but it will be a bit annoying having to redo certain things again and again with every major update when other platforms don't require such.

First of all, the Rebuild Index solution works fine since 2007 (tested from FP 0.703.5 to FP 1.1) and it's often better to rename the old FP folder and build a new FP installation. It's your choice, I do it since FP 0.703.5 so.

Ok, yes, you can override your current FP folder with the new version, it is also is an solution. But with your own "optional" extensions/fixes/optimizations, it's your turn to test what happens after override.

You asked for "what files", download the current Github rev. 550, the current FP 1.1 Zip and the OpenSource tool WinMerge.
see: https://winmerge.org/?lang=en
Compare both unpacked folders and you see which are different.
