About concrete 5.5.0

January 7th, 2012 No comments

We are testing the latest concrete5 release which is concrete 5.5.0. It has lots of improvements and changes in user interface design. In software development significant changes always come with bugs. That doesn’t mean that concrete5 developers are not professional. They are professionals. It is just a reality of the programming world: there is no developer who never has any bug in his work. It just takes some time to find out the bugs and resolve the issues.

We recommend not to use concrete 5.5.0 for live site development. Just wait until the 5.5 branch becomes stable. The latest stable version for now is concrete

Some of known bugs of concrete 5.5.0 that will be fixed in 5.5.1:

  • you can’t update addons locally without connecting to concrete5 marketplace
  • toolbar hides the top part of the theme

We are inspecting our addons at concrete5 marketplace. We try to make them all 5.5-ready as soon as possible.

Downloads List v1.2 released

December 16th, 2010 No comments

Following the previous update we did another one:

In Downloads List 1.2 we added the “getSearchableContent” method to block controller. It includes file name, file title, file description and file tags into the “searchable” page content, which is used when concrete5 prepares search index for its internal search engine (based on Zend search).

It is not indexed automatically, the “Index Search Engine” job should be run either manually or by cron to make concrete5 index website pages for its internal search engine.

Downloads List 1.1 concrete5 addon update

November 15th, 2010 No comments

The last week we updated the Downloads List addon to version 1.1 in the concrete5 marketplace.

In new version (1.1) you can choose the sort order for the downloads list:

  • Default
  • Date: newest first
  • Date: oldest first
  • Filename
  • File size: largest first
  • File size: smallest first
  • Number of downloads (most popular first)
  • Attribute

By default it is set to “default”, which in the newest concrete5.4.1 means the same order as defined on the file set page in admin backend.

Sorting by attribute allows to choose any file attribute for sorting. You can choose direction as well (ascending or descending).

Also, we added an option to use file attributes of boolean type (i.e. checkbox) to filter the downloads list instead of just file sets.

Tables 2.0 concrete5 addon released

July 13th, 2010 No comments

We have just updated the tables addon for concrete5.

What’s new in Tables 2.0:

Some bug fixes:

– when new column was added, the default value was not automatically added to existing rows. Fixed. Thanks to Steven Braun for bug report;

– table was not deleted properly when “Delete table” button is used (the record was not removed from swpTablesTables table in the database). Fixed. Thanks to Steven Braun for report.

Small improvements:

– translation function was changed from custom swp_table_t() to standard t() of concrete5.

Major improvements:

Field types functionality was added. This actually allows to set a specific field type for each cell in the table. The following field types are available at the moment:

Text field. This is the default field type, which in fact was the only field type available in the first release of our addon;

File. This field type allows you to choose a file from concrete5 file manager and the table cell will display the link that allows users to download the file;

Image. It allows you to choose an image from the file manager. That image will be displayed in the table cell.

Rich text content (with TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor). It allows you to embed rich text with extra formatting provided by TinyMCE editor (just like the “Content” block)

Block from scrapbook. This one allows you to choose a block from your scrapbooks that should be displayed in the table cell. In fact this allows you to embed any concrete5 block inside table cell.

For customers using Tables 1.0

Even though upgrade should go smooth, we recommend to backup your website and database before upgrading.


If you are interested in the Tables addon and want to see it in action, including the admin dashboard, please contact us and we will provide you with access details.
