Announcements / XT-CMS v2.1.5 Released
« Last post by xtom on May 07, 2020, 10:57:43 AM »
A new version 2.1.5 of the CMS has been released. You can now choose http or https website protocol setting from the admin config page instead of having to edit the config file. It should also auto detect the appropriate setting for your website. This is more convenient and makes installations that little bit easier. Also added a new Theme page to admin area, go here to manually import theme files or to add/edit custom page code to your page templates.

To download the latest version click here.

v 2.1.5
* {page_content} tags with non-alphanumeric characters are now ignored (underscores also allowed)
* cms_protocol is now set in admin config page and attempts to autodetect if not set - can still override from scripts/config.php
* Moved config page from main admin menu into settings menu
* New Theme page added to main admin menu - moved theme controls from config and maintenance pages to the new theme page
* Moved page code settings to new theme page in admin
* PHP Info moved from admin main menu to config page
* Increased content area font-sizes 10px to 13px
* Removed some unused files from plugins folder
Announcements / XT-CMS v2.1.4 Released
« Last post by xtom on April 27, 2020, 12:55:12 PM »
A new version 2.1.4 of the CMS has been released. This version is  mostly a hot-fix for the recently released 2.1.3 and includes various fixes and improvements. Significantly the main admin is now required to provide an email address which is used for reseting password by email. Previously the website email was used to reset the admin password but this was not ideal for example if the main admin is managing the website for a client and not their own website.

To download the latest version click here.

v 2.1.4
* Special tags {login_link} {private_login_link} can now be used on admin email user page and on newsletter
* Special tag {user_name_full} can be used on new newsletter email {user_name} works as before for short/first name only
* Private login links now redirect to myaccount page by default
* myaccount page now displays successful login message

* Improvements to the image gallery plugin

* Fixed bug in checkout shipping when only subscription products added to cart

XT-CMS + Xara / Re: Dynamic Web Page Templates in Xara
« Last post by sera49 on February 15, 2020, 03:56:06 PM »
i have a question about the the tweak...

Generally it is working great - but i have a issue that dont know how to solve.... The dynamic content can be increased by pressing a button - it extends but the page stays as it is was...

example http://test.bus-express.at/

The page extends at loading... but pressing eg. BOOK TAXi - doesnt makes the page extend... If you refresh the page (F5) than everything is ok....

What coulb be the reason and is there any cure of the problem?

Will XT-CMS work with WYSIWYG Web Builder?

I use Xara 70% of the time and WWB 30%.  I am looking to adopt a CMS.  Would be nice to learn one CMS system that would work with both web building platforms.

SORRY - I see now that you reference that it does work with WWB.
