Focus on 4.2.0

With the recent release of Textpattern CMS 4.2.0 a number of significant enhancements have been made. Since we love to share, we thought we’d give a rundown of the main features and what they mean for you and your sites.

Textpattern 4.0.7 outlook: dissecting the new page template

In the upcoming Textpattern 4.0.7 release, the default page template will contain a sample two-level navigation menu with the first level built by a list of sections while the second level menu is run by a list of article titles within the active section.

Tag parser part 1: new features

For those that just went… “Tag what?!”, the tag parser is the part of Textpattern that interprets the txp tags in your carefully crafted forms and pages. This is the first of two articles discussing the parser changes in the upcoming TXP 4.0.7 version (no, not next week/month).

Introducing: plugin order

So, it’s been over a month since we moved in at our new code repository, we already acquainted ourselves to the place and added a few new features to what will then become Textpattern 4.0.7. I thought I’d explain one of these upcoming features in greater detail: plugin order.

Combatting comment spam

Last December showed a number of reports from different users that some spam-bots and/or (so-called) ‘SEO-Tools’ had been adapted for Textpattern CMS and some users were receiving automated spam to their sites.

Fine-tuning the next release

We are currently fine-tuning the next release of Textpattern CMS, which will hopefully become available within a week.
