Content Revisions & Model Updates

With some updates to the Replicator Models, just renaming some database tables to reflect the modules they support, I also had the inclination (finally) to implement from a database point of view, Content Revisions. At the moment the revisions tables effect Blog Posts, Articles and Pages, the three major areas of content we've considered to be the most crucial for revision tracking.  The Control hasn't yet been updated to reflect the content revisions. However the database and model s…

Pages Module: Added subTitle for customized Display

The Replicator Team has updated the Pages to add a new Column, page_subtitle to the model. This column adds the availability to customize the Page’s viewed title, offering some flexibility instead of the default Page title offered initially and used in the display of the site’s navigation menus.

Replicator 5 - New Changes are coming

Replicator 5, codename Replicator-X is currently in Development.

The Code Core has been updated and many fixes have been put in place that hadn't been previously been patched in the 4.0 release of the core. Replicator-X also includes ColdFusion 11 compatibility, and various database and configuration updates. What's been U…

Templates Update

Replicator 4.0.0 - BootStrap 4

Replicator 3.1.0 (the Version number may very well change to 4 to match the boostrap verison) has now been plugged and developed with Bootstrap 4. Yes, there is a Default "Replicator" Theme in Bootstrap 4 for the front-End and the Control Panel (Formerly known as the Administration Panel) is also rendered in BoostStrap 4. Since a lot of the system has gone into a 'Stable" point  from a Development POV, I'm thinking we'll start consolidating some of the most…

HTMLHead() and HTMLFoot() Functions

In order to assist in customizing the Replicator system, we've added two new Template Variables, rc.HTMLHead and rc.HTMLFoot. The functions are included in your module's cfc before and after events, and outputs the specific modules assets, such as CSS or JavaScript files. Using the rc.HTMLHead variable inputs CSS into the HTML head of your Template. Using the rc.HTMLFoot variable outputs JavaScript into the Footer/End of your Template. You can also…
