Filemgmt Plugin version 1.5.3 Released

Geeklog Topics

A new release of the filemgmt plugin is now available that addresses a potential security issue reported to me by Mark Evans. Additionally, this version resolves a number of issues with the display of sub-categories and now better handles displaying sub-categories and the number of files they contain.

There are no database changes so all that should be required is to replace the changed files or complete directories. Existing sites running version 1.5.2 or earlier need to run the plugun upgrade - from the plugin editor listing. This will update your installed version to reflect version 1.5.3.

Nextide annnounces nexPro

Geeklog TopicsMany of my regular site members and clients know that my day job is as a consultant and partner at Nextide Inc here in Mississauga. We develop web-based applications with a focus on web-based business oriented applications. Over the past few years, we have steadily been developing a large library of re-usable components and applications that have evolved into what we are announcing today as nexPro Portal.

I have not discussed my work at Nextide much in the open community but my peers on the Core Geeklog team have been aware and very supportive. The nexPro suite and services should be a welcome addition to the Geeklog community that have been looking for more business oriented features and services

As announced on geeklog.net, some of the key new plugins and features include:

  • nexForm: Dynamic online forms and Form Editor
  • nexFlow: workflow engine to automate form review, approval and business processes
  • nexFile: Document management with version control and advanced admin features
  • nexList: List administration and used as core admin tool for other plugins
  • nexMenu: Dynamic site menu administration
  • Pre-integrated with the forum and the captcha plugins

We are also announcing the first of our premium plug-in products, nexContent which is a full featured content management solution that allows you to take full control of your site content and block layout. All of the content on our new site has been done with nexContent (excluding the wiki). We are planning to release more premium solutions in the months to come. The next premium product scheduled for release is the nexPro Project Management plug-in.

The Nextide site has been designed to provide you with several means of product evaluation. There are product overviews, video tutorials and wiki documentation to help you get familiar with our solutions. Please post any questions and feedback on our site in the forums and we will promptly follow-up.

Chatterblock Version 3.1 Released

Geeklog TopicsThe latest release of the Chatterblock plugin v3.1 is now available. The plugin will now work with Register_Globals disabled and has been tested on MySQL 5.0 (non-strict mode). There have been a few changes to support GL v1.4.1 themes and support now for SPAMX filtering of public messages as well as private messages via the /tell command.

There are no database changes so all that should be required is to replace the changed files or complete directories. Existing sites running version 3.x need to replace all the plugin files and run the plugin upgrade which just needs to update the version number.
