Version 1.2.4: Refactoring and Browser Support

Release date: 22.09.2018

Version 1.2.4 is a small update with some improvements like browser-support and optimizing some themes and plugins, so please update the system folder, the plugin folder and the theme folder.

Version 1.2.3: Reorder Pages

Release date: 14.09.2018

Important: Upgrade to PHP 7: With version 1.2.3 TYPEMILL requires PHP Version 7.0 or higher. This is due to a library (CSRF-protection), that uses a PHP7 function that is not supported by PHP 5.6. PHP 5.6 and PHP 7.0 will run out of life cycle in december 2018, so you should upgrade your server to PHP 7.1 or PHP 7.2 anyway.

Wow!! More than six weeks and only one feature: As of version 1.2.3 you can re-order your existing content. To do so, simply drag&drop the items in the new navigation of the author panel. It looks so easy, but it was so complex in the background!!

Follow the instruction for simple updates in the documentation and simply update the system folder.

Be aware, that all existing content-files will be renamed if you reorder a file, because we add a new order-prefix to the file name. And be aware of some rules and limitations:

Here is the reason for the last restriction: If you move a folder to another folder, then the adress (url) will change for the whole folder and all its content (pages). It is a nightmare for your readers and for google.

If you really want to reorder your content completely, then you have to do it on the file system for now. In version 2.3.5 you will be able to create new folders and files in the author system, so you can create a new folder and move all files to the new folder manually.

Version 1.2.2: Draft Management

Release date: 24.07.2018

Version 1.2.2 introduces a draft management. Follow the instruction for simple updates in the documentation, so update the system folder and please also update the theme typemill.

With version 1.1.2 we added the possibility to configure the theme in the setup a bit more. We also fixed a bug in the htaccess. So next to the "system"-folder, you should also update the theme-folder and the htaccess-file. As always, backup your settings.yaml-file, then delete it and setup your website again (visit /setup).

Version 1.1.1: Refactoring

Release date: 25.02.2018

Version 1.1.1 is mainly an improvement and some refactoring for the plugin release.

Version 1.1.0: Introduce Plugins

Release date: 05.02.2018

Version 1.1.0 introduces plugins to typemill. And because of the GDPR, the first plugin is an implementation of the famous cookieconsent. So heads up, you can publish GDPR-compliant websites with typemill now!

All plugins are in the "plugin"-folder, and I can't wait, that this folder will be stuffed with cool extensions.

To update the system, please delete, replace and upload

Then backup and delete your settings.yaml in the settings-folder.

Now visit your startpage and click on the new setup-button. The button will direct you to the new setup page, where you can configure the basic system and the new cookieconsent-plugin.

Plugins are easy to use for writers, but a plugin system is pretty complex to implement for a developer, so there is a lot of new code. For now, there is no documentation for developers, but it will follow, soon.
