There seem to be a few bugs still in the PHPBB3 forum bridge that are causing some nasty errors for a few users when logging in on the frontend or the forum. I hope to have this resolved as soon as possible.

UPDATE: Is this issue resolved? I made some code changes to some of the bridge files and I haven't had any complaints for a couple of days now...


This site is in the process of a slow and painful process of a migration to Joomla! 1.5. Things will look messy, dissapear, reappear and then dissapear again, break, stop working, work again, change color and probably $$#??0&õ

Please bear with me. I'll try an keep the disturbance to a minimum.

This website will be unavailable over most of the coming weekend -  16th & 17th August - while I attempt to migrate to Joomla! 1.5

If all goes well we'll be back with a new forum, PHPBB3, and a new subscription component. Hopefully I can minimize data loss, but do to the forum migration I do expect some problems. As no Fireboard to PHPBB3 converter exists, the process becomes a bit of a hack job, but the result, an excellent forum (as used at joomla.org) will be well worth it.


The 1.5.0 'Stable' versions of the JCE Admin Component, 1.5.1 of the Editor Plugin and 1.5.0 'Stable' versions of the Image Manager Extended, Media Manager, File Manager and Template Manager have been released.

This release attempts to fix a number of important bugs, and generally bring some stability and 'production readiness' to the code. On top of the numerous bug fixes, there are a number of important and cool new features:

Administration Component

  • Groups can now be copied
  • The plugin parameters and editor configuration provide a default set of parameters for each new group.
  • The editor's position can now be set (left, right, center), and can also be placed 'outside' the content area.
  • Uninstalling the Admin Component attempts to uninstall the editor and all plugins.
  • Plugin extension parameters are listed within the Group
  • New plugins are automatically added to the 'Default' group.
Editor Plugin
  • File types are now grouped by type, eg images=jpg,gif,png which is used in the Flash Uploader to filter the file type when selecting a file to upload. See this blog article
  • Various additions to the plugin extension system
  • Some major plugins now have tooltip help for most fields.
  • The browser layout has been re-coded. Looks and works better.
AdvLink
  • New Link Brower replaces previous 'link selection system'. Uses a dynamic tree to locate and display links, Click for an example
  • Events tab has been removed to simplify dialog.
  • Dialog has been redesigned for user friendliness.
  • New E-mail icon launches prompt dialog for entering address details.
MediaManager
  • New FLV player includes fullscreen option and new time display.
  • Popup option for creating poup links for JCE Utilities 2.x (requires content selection - text, image etc.)
  • Better support for replacement FLV player, eg: JW Media Player
The Template Manager has also finally been release and is available in the subscriber downloads section.

A new AdvLink extension, DocmanLinks, provides Docman category and document links for the AdvLink link browser (Docman required, obviously)
