2009-01-29 : Website Template Updated : v2.3.0

Enhancements

  1. Cosmetic change to the "page updated" flags: now if a sub-page has been modified, but the parent page has not, the * is shown as (*).
  2. Passed the definition for the initial page view counter value into the user's control - $my_page_count_start now in <setup.php>

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

  1. $my_page_count_start

Bug Fixes

None.

See the downloads page.

2009-01-26 : Website Template Updated : v2.2.0

Enhancements

  1. Enabled page stats for <News.php> - "last update" based upon the top news article and a count based on any time the page is called, i.e. irrelevant of news_year and news_month.

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

None.

Bug Fixes

  1. Fixed the "page updated" feature - when making the new <Home.php> it was looking for <Home.php> time stamp instead of <Home.php> / latest News item.

See the downloads page.

2009-01-23 : Website Template Updated : v2.1.0

Enhancements

  1. Added Home.php which displays Home.html and then displays the latest News item.

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

None.

Bug Fixes

None.

See the downloads page.

2009-01-15 : Website Template Updated : v2.0.0

Enhancements

  1. Optional page stats can be displayed at the bottom of the page body with date modification time and a hit counter. New variables in <setup.php> to control this. A wee cheat on creating the initial stats files though - a random number between 10 and 30 is chosen ... but you'd never know ;-) The stats are recorded regardless if they are displayed, so you have the option at a later date (with the actual numbers), if they are not displayed initially.
  2. Added the ability to include extra style sheets which can be defined in <setup.php>. They must live in the <./style_sheets/extra> directory.
  3. Added the ability to do a complete change of style sheet, not just wide or narrow. The order of precidence ("i" is highest level) for final style sheet selected is as follows:
    1. $my_force_css_width
    2. $my_force_css
    3. Cookie style sheet (if allowable)
    4. $my_default_page_style
  4. Tidied up the <title> and <meta description> by removing leading numbers in the case of numerically sorted pages.
  5. Added a Text Viewer page for displaying text files in the standard layout. There is an option to display as code which adds line numbers.
  6. Managed to get the pages displaying better in IE 6 and below (CSS changes).
  7. Constructed a more informative demo website to explain the workings of the software.
  8. Contact form now accepts pre-defined subjects (if defined in <setup.php>) and also has the ability to re-direct e-mails for a particular subject to a different e-mail address (again defined in <setup.php>).
  9. Changing the name of the "Contact" page now updates any links in the pages, assuming you change the variable in <setup.php>

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

  1. $my_contact_page
  2. $my_contact_subject[]
  3. $my_contact_redirect
  4. $my_stats_active
  5. $my_stats_date_format
  6. $my_extra_style_sheet[]
  7. $my_force_css[]

Bug Fixes

  1. HTML pages displayed will no longer display empty lines from the file.
  2. The "acknowledgement" screens for the <Contact> page were hard coded to display "Gavin" on the page. A couple of string replacements that I missed when making the software generic. It will use $my_company_name if it is defined in <setup.php> like the rest of the page does.
    (Thanks to Bruce Levick for spotting this one too.)

See the downloads page.

2009-01-05 : Website Template Updated : v1.4

Users are highly recommended to upgrade or warning messages may (depending on your hosting server's setup) be displayed at the head of the page once your pages start to become "old."

Enhancements

  1. Version numbers added to *all* <*.php> files (in the package) with a sanity check of them performed at the end of <index.php>. This should ensure compatibility in case anyone upgrades software and forgets a file or two. Obviously this will only work from this version onwards and if they use the new <index.php>. Warnings added as XHTML comment text.

New Setup Variables (see <setup-sample.php> for details)

  1. $file_version["setup.php"]

Bug Fixes

  1. <Image.php> didn't have a couple of \n so the XHTML looked messy.
  2. Added an extra parameter to mail() in <Contact Me.php> as some servers have been set up to require the "envelope sender address" when using sendmail.
    (Thanks to Bruce Levick for spotting that one.)
  3. Removed unnecessary XHTML comments from <News.php>.
  4. Searching a NULL "haystack" in <find_all_pages.php> when looking for hierarchical updates if the first page found had not been updated. So, set the starting gambit from "" to " "
