Changes for version 0.60

  • Removed footer search from edit page (shouldn't have been there). Upgraded Module::Build requirement to cope with API change. Added new parameters to action=random - you can now supply category and/or locale to get a random page chosen from that category/locale. To go with this, added a new macro: @RANDOM_PAGE_LINK [[Category Pubs|View a random pub]] Fixed bug in OpenGuides::Feed - HTML equivalent link now works even if your script_name isn't blank. Rewrote the HTML of the edit page to use <div>s rather than tables. Note that you will probably want to provide at least basic styling for these classes. As part of this, added a new template, Moved node image boxes below phone/address/etc on the edit form, and moved summary field from openguides information section into main section. Made div#maincontent on the edit form wrap the preview view only, not the whole form. Added links to the "revision N" and "Last edited" text in the navbar. Added format => "raw" option to OpenGuides::Search->run to let you get your results back as a hash. Add JavaScript to the Create New Page page so the prefilled "New page name" disappears when you click in the field (it doesn't make anything other than "New page name" diappear). Move node RDF generation from inline to and replace home-grown escaping with encode_entities_numeric from HTML::Entities (technically this is an added dependency, but we already require the package it comes in, via Wiki::Toolkit::Formatter::UseMod). Move random page functionality from wiki.cgi into and add some tests. Add config options to let admins omit category and/or locale pages from the list of pages that can be returned by the Random Page link. Use full URLs for all links in navbar, so people can INCLUDE in their own scripts. (May revisit this later using "base href".) Added some stylesheet hooks to; see README.CSS for details. Documented the stylesheet hooks in the admin interface (see README.CSS) Bugfix: uninitialized variable warning in script_url Bugfix: Make sure clean target works
