FlatPress 1.3: Release Candidate 1 released, please help testing

Post by Arvid » Sun Mar 24, 2024 10:47 am

Hi folks,

I am very proud to announce the first Release Candidate of FlatPress 1.3 "Andante"!

For more details, please see my announcement on the project blog.
Also, check out FlatPress 1.3 "Andante" - Release Candidate 1 on GitHub to find the detailed change log, a download package and an update package from FlatPress 1.2.

Call for testing help
If you happen to find the time, please help us with the last test before the final release. Try a fresh installation, or update a testing copy of your existing blog.
Please report any bugs and glitches here on the FlatPress support forum. Thank you!
If no further bugs are reported throughout the testing phase, this version will soon be released as the final version 1.3.

How to test
This is a release candidate. Although it’s most likely what will become the final release, you may not want to use it on your productive blog yet.
For testing, it is better to ...
  • ... install a fresh new FlatPress 1.3.
    For this, please use the 1.3.rc1 download package.
  • ... run an update on a copy (!) of your existing blog.
    Simply copy your existing FlatPress 1.2 instance to another (sub-) directory and apply the 1.2 to 1.3 update package.
How to report issues
Please let us know any findings and bugs you stumble upon here on this forum topic. Did the installer run smoothly? Are the reported bugs fixed? Do the new plugins and features look and work good? In case you tried the update package: Does everything keep working and looking as expected?


Thank you very much for your support and your testing!
All the best,
Arvid

Correcting the time in the admin area has no effect

Steps towards reproducibility:
1.) change the time correction in the admin area
2) Create a new entry

Issue #116 therefore added to milestone 1.3.

The active DateChanger plugin overrides the time correction in the admin area.
It is therefore deactivated by default.

With best regards
Frank

The correct date is 2024-03-23, not 2024-02-23 as seen in the front page.

Plus, I can't comment on the blog post entry... "technical difficulties"

Hello @macadoum,

thank you very much for testing and reporting.
Strange that I get this error message when commenting.
I want to narrow down the cause of both problems and need your support.

@macadoum, please post the output of the support data here, which you can find in the admin area menu "maintain"->"Show support data".

It is also strange that the date is a whole day behind. Date and time are composed of UTC + timeoffset.
The web host may have an incorrect date. Does the web host have contact to the Internet to synchronize the time?
Thinking out loud: Does the web host have a problem with the leap year?

@macadoum, please check in the admin area in the menu "Configuration"->"International settings" whether the correct date is displayed here for UTC.

I have issue 354 and issue 355 created.

@Arvid, the error message is thrown by the CommentCenter plugin.

Code: Select all

$lang ['plugin'] ['commentcenter'] = array(
	'akismet_error' => 'Sorry, we\'re encountering technical difficulties.',
Thank you in advance
Frank

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough.

This happens on your website, flatpress.org

@macadoum
Thank you for your feedback. The website flatpress.org is still running on the basis of FlatPress 1.2. After updating, both problems should no longer exist.

I am closing both issues.

Happy Easter holidays
Frank

See my comment on the blog, I fixed that. Thanks for reporting!
Still need to inspect the "technical difficulties" message - your comment was correctly stored (multiple times, because you tried a few times), but held back by the Comment Center (it's set up so all comments have to be actively published by me.) As Frank suspects, this may be fixed with 1.3.

Having fixed #99, the only open issue of the 1.3 milestone is to update the standard plugin documentation on our wiki (issue #81).

This means, we're very close to finally releasing FlatPress 1.3 "Andante"! 8-)

Can you please make a last effort and test the current development version of FlatPress thoroughly?

Thank you all very much for your support!

That was an error in the old Akismet plugin. I switched to the Comment Center plugin (which has the Akismet service included), now it works fine again. Thank you for reporting!


Just updated two more FlatPress 1.2 instances - 1.3 RC1 works like a charm! Had to do some adjustments in the themes as described on the wiki, though. And the deprecated Akismet plugin needs to be removed. (This will be documented in the update instructions.)
