File size: 24.5 KB
2        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
3          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
4          to reflect this.
5        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
6        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
7        Fix missing bracket in
8        Add custom_node template just below main content in
100.51    15 November 2005
11        Important changes:
12          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
13            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
14            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
15            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
16            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
17            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
19        New features:
20          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
21            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
22            a blank page.
23          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
24            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
25            - Show node summary in search results.
26          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
27          * RSS feed now contains DOAP ( metadata.
29        RDF bugfixes:
30          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
31          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
32          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
33          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
34            not the RecentChanges page URL.
36        Search bugfixes:
37          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
38            lat/lon was being used.
39          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
40            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
41            search was being done.
43        Minor improvements:
44          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
45            with spaces.
46          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
47            the old page rather than the editing view.
49        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
50          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
51          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
530.50    2 October 2005
54        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
560.49    24 July 2005
57        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
58        a test failure)
600.48    24 July 2005
61        RDF enhancements:
62          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
63            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
64          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
65            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
66          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
67            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
68          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
69            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
70            applications.
71          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
72            to other nodes.
73          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
74            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
75        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
76        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
77          template
78        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
79          informing you of the fact.
80        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
81          node display.
82        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
83          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
84        Replace <label> tags in with <span
85          class="metadata_label">.
86        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
87          pointing to each node.
88        Prevent redirect loops.
89        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
910.47    15 January 2005
92        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
93        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
94        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
95        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
96        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
97        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
98        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
99        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
100        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
101        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
1030.46    21 December 2004
104        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
105          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
106        Update supersearch help text URL.
107        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
108        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
109          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
110        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
111        Fixed distance search paging bug.
112        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
113          trailing spaces in the name.
114        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
115          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
116          Class::Accessor.
117        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
118          is a risky activity.
119        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
120        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
121          distribution.
1230.45    1 December 2004
124        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
125        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
126          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
127          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
128          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
129          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
130          distance searches will work.
131        In less exciting news:
132          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
133          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
134          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
1360.44    17 November 2004
137        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
138          not completely removed before.
139        Improved the efficiency of the search.
140        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
141          and have changed.
142        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
143        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1450.43    21 October 2004
146        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1480.42    20 October 2004
149        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
150          find_within_distance action.
151        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
152        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
153        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
154          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
155          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
156          introduced in 0.41.
157        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1590.41    21 September 2004
160        Added backlinks link to navbar.
161        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
162        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
163          installed as index.cgi
164        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
165        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
166          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
167          for details).
168        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
169        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
170          @RSS;username=Kake
171        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
1730.40    18 September 2004
174        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
175          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
176        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
177        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
178        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
179        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
180        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
181        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
182        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
183        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
1850.39    15 September 2004
186        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
187        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
188          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
189          you will need to do two things:
190            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
191              directory) or use a different index directory
192            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
193              directory of this distribution)
1950.38    26 July 2004
196        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
197          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
1990.37    23 July 2004
200        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
201          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
202          avoid escapeHTML bug.
2040.36    13 July 2004
205        Added diff link to node template.
206        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
207        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
2090.35    25 June 2004
210        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
211          use this.
2130.34    25 June 2004
214        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
215          this from the node history page.
2170.33    20 June 2004
218        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
219          the previous one or the current one.
220        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
221          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
222          for most of them.
223        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
224          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
225          by Steve Jolly).
226        Removed inline style from You will need to add
227          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
228          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
229          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
230          td#map changed to td#map_link in
231        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
232          Advanced Search).
233        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
235        Added new preference for default edit type.
236        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
237          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
238        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
239          history) pages.
2410.32    7 June 2004
242        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
243          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
244          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
245          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
246          created accidentally.
2480.31    09 May 2004
249        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
250          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
251          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
252            @RSS []
254        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
255          Accessibility Guidelines (
256          - summaries for all HTML tables
257          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
258            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
259            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
260            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
261            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
262            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
263            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
264          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
265            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
266            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
267            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
268            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
269            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
271        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
272          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
274        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
275          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
276          - empty tags are no longer generated
277          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
278            node RDF view
279          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
280          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
281          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
282          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
283            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
284            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
285            FOAF topics)
286          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
288        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
289          SQLite databases.
291        Doc fix for private installations.
293        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
294          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
295          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
297        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
299        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
300          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
301          be distributing it.
3030.30    29 December 2003
304        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
305          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
306          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
308        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
309          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
310          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
311          of navigation bar is consistent.
312          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
313          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
314          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
315          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
316          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
317          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
319        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
320          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
321          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
322          documentation you can provide.
324        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
325          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
327        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
329        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
331        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
333        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
3350.29    8 November 2003
336        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
338 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
339          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
341 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3430.28    1 November 2003
344        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
346        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
347        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
348          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3500.27    1 November 2003
351        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
353        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
355        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
356        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3580.26    9 October 2003
359        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
360          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
362        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
364        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
366        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
367          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3690.25    23 September 2003
370        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
372        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
373          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
375        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
376          have been - skip them for now.
3780.24    8 September 2003
379        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
381        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
382          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
383        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
3850.23    4 August 2003
386        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
387        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
3890.22    4 August 2003
390        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
392        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
394        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
396        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
398        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
400        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
402        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
403        footer (CPAN request 3110).
4050.21    17 July 2003
406        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
407        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
408        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
409        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
411        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
412        version that didn't have unescape.
414        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
415        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
417        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
418        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
419        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
420        one, not the original one every time.
4220.20    10 July 2003
423        Fixed all the email addresses to
4250.19    10 July 2003
426        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
428        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
430        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
432        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
433          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
435        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
436        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
437        in your config file.
439        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
441        Implemented minor edits.
443        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
4450.18    16 June 2003
446        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
4480.17    15 June 2003
449        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
451        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
4530.16    26 May 2003
454        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
456        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
457        Save button as well as the Preview one.
459        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
460        instead of decimal (requested by James).
4620.15    18 May 2003
463        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug

4660.14    17 May 2003
467        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
468        the idea.
470        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
471        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
472        us to find bugs in.
4740.13    17 May 2003
475        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
477        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
479        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
481        Added edit field for map link.
4830.12    14 May 2003
484        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
485        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
4870.11    14 May 2003
488        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
490        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
491        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
4930.10    11 May 2003
494        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
495        node versions.
497        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
498        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
5000.09    10 May 2003
501        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
502        pub crawl generator.
504        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
505        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
506        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
507        process, hurrah.
5090.08    3 May 2003
510        Added fuzzy matching capability -
511          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
512        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
514        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
515        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
516        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
518        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
519        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
5210.07    3 May 2003
522        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
523        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
525        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
526        or Category Locales as appropriate.
528        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
529        grubstreet data.
531        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
532        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
5340.06    2 May 2003
535        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
536        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
5380.05    2 May 2003
539        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
540        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
541        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
543        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
544        I think.
546        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5480.04    29 April 2003
549        First public release.
