5.1.0 RC1 Released

Postby Jeremy » 2006-06-02 03:37 pm

We're one step closer to 5.1.0.

If you try this release, please give me any feedback you have. Even if you don't have any problems.

This is a release candidate. That means that there are no known bugs and it just needs some more testing before the final release. Be on the lookout for any bugs and please report them at the support forum.

If you are upgrading from an old version, make sure to BACKUP YOUR DATA first because the upgrader has not been extensively tested.


You can get it at the downloads page: http://www.aardvarktopsitesphp.com/index.php?page=downloads

Here is a list of changes since 5.0.3:

FEATURES
- When an edit form or join form has errors in it, the user is presented with inline error messages
- RSS feed of the top 10 sites (overall and by category) via feed.php
- New admin stuff:
- - Topical links to the manual for confusing options on the settings page
- - Google-friendly links is now an option
- - Option to email admin when a new review is posted
- - Custom pages: easily add static content to integrate with your topsites (FAQ, rules, etc.)
- - Profanity filter
- - Overall stats displayed on main page
BUG FIXES
- More robust in non-standard environments (no <?=, handles weird files in languages dir)
- Major performance increase in rankings.php for lists with lots of sites per page
- Hits in from search engines are filtered to prevent cheating
- Language list is ordered alphabetically
- Minor skin tweaks
- When a category name is edited, sites currently in that category are moved to the edited category
- Categories containing ampersands (&) work correctly
- Admin does not allow you to delete the last category
- Minor search improvements (UI and sorting)
- When users join lists that require admin approval, they are warned that they will not be listed immediately
- Uses preg_replace_callback() instead of preg_replace() to speed up skin parsing
- - 10% faster skin parsing results in 1% faster overall script execution

I go to the manage members page. I edit something in their account, when I finish it just goes to the edit members page, and its blank.

everything looks good.

only one small tweak, move the </a> in link_code.html directly after the <img> rather than on the next line to avoid that pesky _ from showing after the button on members sites who underline links.

I actually found a problem with the manage reviews function. I look up a username and nothing comes up.

How can I fix this?

Also how does a user review?

it works for me. does the site you're looking up have any reviews? you can review a site by following the link on the stats page.

One other really minor issue, when you delete a group of custom pages it asks if you want to delete these members.
