ocPortal v 5.1.0 beta1

Suddenly, the News preview has stopped previewing the 'News summary' element of a post. Was this intentional?

I format my 'summary' (that appears on the front page) slightly differently to the actual 'article', so it would be good to have the preview reinstated.



Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Was intentional, but I agree. The change was because news/blog posts are pretty key to people so deserved not to have the slightly-cryptic auto-generated previews. From the next release it will show just title/article/summary which I think's the right balance.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
