What should next sNews version have?
There are some functions we already agreed about and will come up in the next version.

* Note that mods and addons will be developed from this point, so we're only making a list of things to be modified or added to enhance usabillity of the main engine.

List:
·Breadcrumbs (eg. Home > Design > My Design

·Remove files inclusion on RSS ([include] function)

·Reorganize archives to show articles by month and year

·Abillity to change order of menu items and categories [integrated]

·Add an optional layer (
) for individual articles [integrated]

Luka, would be interesting to think to add a function of pagination in the routines 'search' and 'archive'.
Thanks Luka for your effort!! ;)
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: bryn on February 23, 2006, 10:49:29 pm

List:
·more features on contact page..drop down email recipient etc.

·rss feeds for categories..I assume by making a different select call from the database

·some kind of keyword tagging system or tag cloud (extra table in the db - option to add these at editing time) which can then be automatically displayed under an article post by calling a page function..therefore on a page by page basis, and maybe also leading to the development of a standard 'Related Articles' (by keyword/title) page function

·option to enter meta keywords/description at editing

·option to add an Authors name in the absence of a multi-user system..switchable of course

·mutli-user system..multi-language system




phew..better stop there before Luka strings me up alive and accuses me of trying to steal his life away!!!! just some thoughts ;D

Might have been said before, but just to emphasize them again :P My suggestions:

- Multi user (I'm really missing this feature)
- Pagination in general (so not only archive/search as bramsyuur wrote)
- Edit-general-settings-page live on a seperate page (like the page where you can edit Categories) so you won't have to edit snews.php
- An installer like the one Analyzerx (?? -hope i remember correctly) made.
- Can't think of anything more right now, will post here when I do

Hi Vitor..read this article ok?

there is a way to do this and it works, but involves some code fiddling  :rolleyes:

And you could also do this by using Albert's code here:

To reply to your post:
1) Sounds more like you need a forum :P
2) Yeah I agree, I had that in my post too
3) I think this is not going to happen, but search this forum for texttoapi or something like that, there's a mod somewhere that allows you to store articles etc in files, not in mysql.

Luka, will you add some of the items to your first post in this topic?

@Dexter:
I'll respond to the third point you bring up...Dobey, another distinguished member of the PHP guru people on this here forum have made a flatfile version of the sNews script...It's currently working with ver 1.3, I think but ver 1.4 has yet to be developed... Read more on that here: http://solucija.com/forum/index.php?topic=90.0

Download it: http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=1448

And visit Dobey's flatfile site to see how it works...: http://rjs-phpscripts.berlios.de/

Just an addition to my previous post:
Is it possible to add a function where you can move your category/menu items to a different position (i.e. move the 4th category to the first place in the category-links)?
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: bryn on February 26, 2006, 08:39:21 pm
not within the script I don't think no..but you could possibly do this by altering the category id in the database directly..would involve some fiddling though as you might have to create additional throwaway categories while changing the order

unless somebody else has a better way? :D

Ads integration into articles is something we need.. i.e. integration of AdSense or YPN ad codes into articles.. is it possible? the only way at the moment is by posting the ad code within the articles text. Lets say by:

Code: [Select]
<div style="float: right; margin: 3px 3px 3px 3px;">

Ad code or other stuff to merge into snews articles here

</div>

is there any other better way of doing that?
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: Patric Ahlqvist on February 28, 2006, 07:29:14 am
I think that the possibility to post the actual code is sufficient, at least for me, hehe...
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: bryn on February 28, 2006, 09:13:15 pm
you could also [include][/include] the ads text that way..giving the include a class that will show it where you require it?

also..if you place the ads in a rotator script..you have another take on the idea, check Google for 'better anything rotator'..can't lay my hands on the link right now, but I use it myself.

taken further you could include the output of one of the many available ad scripts..like banner excahange etc, but that will also allow text to be shown, then you could have tracking possibilities? ;)

I'd like something like that also - a way for each article/category created to pull the keyword/description info from the database into the meta tags (if I understood you right bryn).

Actually, I could do without that option on edit page for now and wouldn't mind editing the database from phpMyAdmin... just to have this function.

working well av..thanks :)
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: Dom on May 07, 2006, 08:24:34 pm
Thanks for the tip gomisan! Just what I was looking for :)

@ bryn
Exactly, I don't think they would punish anybody who tries to make his website a bit more user-friendly by describing each page on the website correctly.
Although, I have heard Google could punish you (can't recall in which way exactly) if you over-optimize your website for search engines. For example, if you use your strategic keywords in absolutely every possible anchor on your website - like, imagine you don't have the "home" link every site has, but you place "the title of my site which is my most competitive strategic keyword phrase" instead simple "home" on every link that directs to your homepage. That's too much.
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: bryn on May 07, 2006, 10:17:23 pm
your right Dom..I think the best advice would be not to overload..or "stuff" as they say..your keywords and description, but to merely make them very relavent to the particular page/article

it seems that Google is only likely to take offense or downgrade your pagerank if you make blatent attempts to over optimise your pages with the intention of cheating or mis-direction for users..but who knows really? as we don't know the algorythm, and probably never will ;)
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: iatbm on May 07, 2006, 10:32:22 pm
Dom : there is no problem with home ... Why would you not optimize your home adress with your keywords ? ... even on every page ! .... I have this on some pages and no problem for over a year !  ... no problem with home too ;) ..... google is not scary hehe .... for that kind of on-page seo it is ok ... what google dont like is some hidden keywords made with css ....

sNews 1.5 What's new:


- Control Panel in Administration area
- New Page option and page can be set up as home (using sNews as CMS, not blog)
- meta description and keyword on articles and pages
- Any article or page can be category dependant (optional)
- pages (former menu_items) and categories order
- URL field on comments (with validation)
- Comment approval option (new comments appear in Control Panel)

TAGS:

Info line tag:
You can define the look and what to use.

Example:
Code: [Select]
$tags['infoline'] = "

,readmore,comments,date,

";
Comments tag:

Code: [Select]
$tags['comments'] = "
,

,ordinal ,name, - ,date,

,

,comment,

,
";
New fuctions that can be used in index.php:

- sitemap (different from archive cause it displays pages, not just posts)
- new comments (function to display eg. 3 newest comments)
- breadcrumbs


And another really cool feature:

Live preview as you type when creating or editing an article.. simple wysiwyg and all toys :)

FIXES:

- it wasn't possible to search while browsing archives or contact form, that's fixed now
- RSS Feed now validates


Edit: there's a lot of things improved and integrated I haven't mentiones cause I can't remember right now but I will :)

With the URL in the comments etc, will this have the "nofollow" tag on it?  Also, is the commenters IP recorded somewhere?  I'd like to be able to find people spamming and ban IPs etc ;)
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: Patric Ahlqvist on June 13, 2006, 03:08:38 pm
Mhm, that spamming IP ban has been disussed somewhere here before, and someone commented on that like:
"IP banning has no real function as pro spammers don't use same IP each time. " And if people like me get different IP each time connected to internet, this fails... But it's bound to restrict it some anyways...
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: mattd on June 13, 2006, 06:33:59 pm
well, you can get a new IP yes, but they are always from the same range of IPs.  Yes real pro spammers will use proxies and bot nets and stuff though if they are really dedicated - not much you can do really.

I just want to be able to identify who the people are who are posting meaningless comments like "sdfjyhsdufys" (that is copy paste example for you) and other counter-productive things really.  You are unlikely to find a simple silver-bullet to stop dedicated professional spam, but you can at least stop morons by finding their IP and blocking it with .htaccess!
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: Mika on June 14, 2006, 12:34:09 am
sorry mattd, there is no solution for "sdfjyhsdufys" comments except spending a lot of time cleaning them manually. installing dictionary to avoid this...mhmm... doesn't seem like a really good and productive idea. yes, there are some "little" tricks but with setbacks as they are mostly language dependant: profanities stopper, word length counter etc... example: my native language doesn't have words with pairs of letters such as df or hs or gh near each other (random querty typing ;)) - such a filter is rather hard to create and it doesn't come cheap. does it worth it? and don't forget - you'll never get 100% result from it.

IP block, as you said, can cover a wide range of addresses - and maybe the real and willing users/customers with dynamic IPs.

there's still a bright side - most of the automated spammers do not behave like "browser users" - they rather parse poorly written code and move through protocols without clicking buttons. one should use that approach to (or at least try to) win this battle..

oh yes, morons... they'll eventually rule the world. if you gave up :D

(hint: deny them access to forms, not the rest of the site)
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: mattd on June 14, 2006, 01:04:40 am
Yes there are pro blems with automatically detecting that sort of thing, and you have to review the comments to remove the racist and illegal things anyway.  This is why I want is a listing of their IP so I can see who it is, and if they are a repeat offender then ban them.

Using htaccess you can ban ranges of IPs one byte at a time, so you are only going to be banning smallish numbers at the most.  I'd only use that if people were presistently causing problems etc
Title: Next sNews version TODO
Post by: Dom on June 14, 2006, 03:27:21 pm
If you want to eliminate such meaningless posts... a possible solution would be approving each and every comment manually.

Drawback of this, of course is in case you get a lot of comments every day, it might take a lot of your time to go through all the posts.

Another drawback is that, depending on frequency of your checking for new comments, comments on your site won't always be current...

But here's an idea how frequent posters could be excluded from this...
If someone is a frequent poster on your site, you simply place her e-mail in the whitelist and her comments don't have to be approved in order to show on your website.


P.S. I apologize if this has already been discussed somewhere on this forum before...

Sorry that was a short message wasn't it :)
I just noticed that on a website I'm working on (with modified snews btw) archives, login and contact have
Code: [Select]
Probably because snews.php can't find category/id for it?

Also, again I'm not sure if this has been discussed before (must be the increasing size of the great community herethat caused me to stop remembering most of the topics on here!) but will there be an error page if login fails? I'm not sure if there's an error message now, but I don't believe there is?

your memory serves you well ;) that issue wasn't brought up. have you got any programming skills? it's a rather small error-notifying snippet...

Well, I'm still desperatly in need of a good PHP book, but I'll try OK? Are you busy with other sNews 1.5 things, Mika? :)

I guess it's a bit late to be asking for it now, and possibly it's better served as a mod anyway, to preserve simplicity, but -- the option to create an Atom feed instead of RSS 2.0, or even an option to choose RSS feed format (0.91, 2.0, Atom, RDF), would be nice... ;D

I'm only missing 2 things:

-Multi user (maybe optional), since I'm planning to use sNews for a couple of my customers, who will have several people writing editorials. This would mean that an admin function would need to be created to publish an article or not.
-Sub categories since Category Internet would have to be under Computers, along side Hardware and software, on my website.

I know they were already asked for, but I'm only "casting my vote" so mabe it might seem important enough to add :D

The multi user feature is already a mod, not totally finished if I remember right, but still... And it's for 1.4, not 1.5. This is a feature that will continously be an addon/mod due to lightwieght of script, but Sub categories... Don't know, we'll have to wait for Luka man... He's back on the 12'th.

Patric.

OK, everyones tell me to be patient for 1.5 - I cant any more!!!  *laugh*

:D

Im going nuts - I wanna design my new website around the cool things in 1.5 and have it up before the end of the year...   ...I know you guys are working bloody hard and damn it, if I could provide programming help I would but Im not even close to being Luka's big toe!

I know Aug is out of the question now and I have been flopping myself between different posts all over the forum about 1.5, in an effort ro find more info?!

Any chance it will be out in Sept or Oct?

Thanks HEAPS!

I too have a website in the early stages of dev, and am loath to put any time into a 1.4 version, because I know I'll need to do a few mods. So indeed, 1.5 would be a real handy thing to have ;)

I am in the same situation.  Its either mangle 1.4 to do what I want, go with static HTML which I am kinda loathed to do with this site, or find another CMS.

I dont want to move to a new CMS to get the extra features, but its getting tempting now! :(

nah, changing CMS isn't tempting, but a vanilla 1.4 site might be.

Ah well for me it is - I am desperate for sub categories and pagination and stuff.  1.4 cant cut it without mangling, but there are other CMS that can so its pretty tempting!!
