Apart from lots of bug fixes some changes in this version are:
  • Added the ability to send HTML-only newsletters
  • Removed some layout tables (made possible due to improvements in Firefox 3)
  • Made the "Add block" assistant much more user friendly

I'm pleased to also say that the documentation for version 4 is now very nearly complete. We've updated the tutorials to reflect features changes, added some further explanations for existing features, and generally gone over all the tutorials word-by-word to make them easier to follow.

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 ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • 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 ocPortal 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.

Downloading it now and going to test it right after it gets done downloading.
Will report all bugs I find.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Upgrade heads up: My upgrade failed this morning due to having removed the (using the addon removal tool in adminzone) the banners module since I'm wasn't going to be using it. Here was the first issue:

Code

Unfortunately a query has failed [SELECT COUNT(*) FROM ocp4_banners WHERE (validated=1) LIMIT 1] [Table 'db_support_ocportal.ocp4_banners' doesn't exist] (version: 4-0 Beta 8, PHP version: 4.3.9, URL: /ocp/adminzone/)
To correct this, I dumped the banner tables from a working B7 installation. This then produced:

Code

A template file is missing: BANNER_IMAGE (version: 4-0 Beta 8, PHP version: 4.3.9, URL: /ocp/adminzone/)
I bundled up all the BANNER* files from the B7 and extracted them to themes/default/templates on the B8 and all is now well.
