1.2.6 Beta Commit Log – 3/28/2012

tweeter screenshotThe most recent commits are listed below. There were some users complaining about the department-perms not working when adding a file. That issue is hopefully resolved. The locked/unlocked icon will now show locked only for files that are checked-out, or that are expired. Previously any users that had view permissions for a file were being shown the red X. Updated the installer routine to help when re-installing. If there is a config.php file the installer will now ask that the file be renamed or removed to proceed with install or upgrade. During installation, the installer will now ask to set the admin user password instead of defaulting it to be blank. UDF’s were having problems if the database user did not have ALTER perms. New “tweeter” theme has been added, and the overall themability of OpenDocMan has been improved dramatically. Users should now be able to “spin off” from the default theme, and by altering the header.tpl and footer.tpl, have a new site design. IE users (not suprisingly) were having many issues including non-functioning buttons, and the forms and text were all being centered. We have shifted the text and forms to be left-aligned now to help resolve this issue, and removed all of the <center> tags. Some translations were added.

It is good to talk to customers

[ad#Google Adsense-468×60]

Every once in a while I get to talk directly to customers over the phone. Many times it is just to answer some quick questions, or they may be interested in a specific feature and want to know if our DMS has it. Today I spoke with a user that had a few questions and during the process of helping him I was able to see his customized installation. I always find it interesting to login to an OpenDocMan installation and see different theme designs. What I mean by that is they had customized the theme by changing the color schemes, adding new buttons, and updating the header area to match their Internet website. I would love to see more of this from our users. In fact, 1.2.6 beta is now easier to theme and it includes a “plugin” feature to add drop-in customizations to the core code.
