Post Icy Phoenix 1.2.24.51 RC 2 
 
Hi all,
here is the second release candidate version of Icy Phoenix.

What's New Respect To RC 1
  • CMS Standard Pages now is more flexible... can also handle new pages (even if a little code should be added to those pages to work correctly)
  • Removed the old CMS Pages Permissions section in CMS which has been replaced by the new Standard Pages section
  • Event Registration feature has been added
  • Fixed a lot of bugs in IE
  • Fixed some minor bugs


What's New Respect To Latest Stable Release

  • CMS Administration recoded with new features (some AJAX) and restyled
  • CMS Blocks and Layouts recoded from scratch to increase flexibility and performance (now block style is in a single file to help designing new styles)
  • New template structure: it is now possible to create brand new templates by just creating a CSS and a CFG file, this will reduce the number of files needed for each template, reducing also the job in case of updates or customizations; not only, you will be able to easily create combinations between different templates without having to duplicate directory structure
  • Common CMS and ACP templates now fully independent from all other templates
  • Common JS and CSS in common folder and possibility to include extra CSS and JS via PHP without editing TPL
  • Some Functions and other common includes splitted among several files to reduce memory charge and increase performance
  • Created new overall vars and switches to increase flexibility and performances (old switches were based upon loops, new ones are based on conditions, which are faster to be processed)
  • English language files grammatically reviewed (thanks Lopalong!) and in some cases updated to the new phpBB 3 format
  • New Junior Admin permission which gives full admin power while in the forum but restricted in ACP and CMS (ACP modules can be assigned via Junior Admin management and CMS permission for CMS management)
  • Brand new Statistics system which integrates new features and replace also old Site History page
  • Bots Parsing now is DB dependent and bots can now have REG access... also you can now add a switch for bots in TPL files to avoid bots spidering something you don't want them to
  • URL Rewrite modified to be more efficient
  • Print Page improved
  • Added Google Search page to be used alternatively the standard search system, this will reduce the charge on your server
  • Colorize username function recoded to reduce looping and cache issues with a large userbase
  • Recoded caching system which in older Icy Phoenix version was proved to fail for high traffic sites: this new way to cache should be more efficient and should reduce CPU charge under stressing condition
  • Birthdays and Calendar should now use less resources than before, again big sites will benefit from this
  • New CRON system which should be easier to be customized and improved... basic functions already added, new features to come with future versions...
  • Created new user related functions to simplify Icy Phoenix integration and coding: user_get_avatar, build_im_link, PM Class, generate_user_info
  • AJAX Sorting in some ACP and CMS pages to speed up things in administrating things
  • New Recent Topics page allowing admins to track latest users activity
  • Forums Sorting capabilities both by adding alphabetical sorts and columns headers links
  • Higher Lang Encoding compatibility
  • Mass PM feature integrated in Mass Email section
  • Brand new Ads and Banners system
  • Mass Email supports now full HTML format for nicely formatted newsletters
  • Smileys Categories section... it is hardcoded to improve performances even with thousands of smileys
  • Step by step DB Backup System similar to MySQLDumper... to avoid nasty timeouts when backing up the site
  • HighSlide JS (http://highslide.com/) integration
  • Many smaller updates and features... install the release candidate to discover all of them!

I'm sorry for the amount of updated files, but I had to fix many bugs in IE, and some bugs of the standard CMS pages which were not working fine.

I'm sure many of you will like the new way of handling Standard pages.

I also hope that RC 2 will be the last RC... if no big bugs will be found, I will release the final version.

Thanks for understanding.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function auth_select() in /home/web/www...../www/...../cms.php on line 2237

It appears that the somewhat very slow and erratic download speed has created a few problems with files missing or broken, and url's being invalid after install.

I couldn't believe that it would be or was released with so many errors showing immediately after install.

Downloaded a fresh copy - re-installed - and all the previous errors disappeared.

Yes! I know it shouldn't happen, but any other explanation at the moment eludes me completely.

Will work... but you will miss some new lang vars.

I have fixed that... you can either re-download the package or get the updated files from SVN.

I can't understand why the server is having "problems" with non-Italian requests...

I have added a mirror download from a US server.

Thanks, but it appears that the slow download speed was not what caused my problem.

Winzip failed to cleanly unzip the first download and to write all the files to the HD. I re-tested it after both downloads were noted to be the same size, and this time both extracted to the same size in all respects.

One of life's little mysteries, or too much crap running on the PC at the same time during the extraction. More than likely the latter.

Maybe you downloaded the file while I was updating it...

Anyway, glad that everything has been solved.
