About the Future of pBlog

I figured out that there will be many changes in the engine which will require many changes in the files (especially the posts file) and in the filestructure. I can’t say right now which things will change and what you have to change. Out of this reason. I change the Version numbers and add an zero in front of them. So instead of 2.1 the latest version is now 0.2.1. The 0.2.x series is now on GitHub as an own branch and will recive bugfix updates. The series 0.3, 0.4, 0.5 and so own will be development releases which won’t be compatible to the 0.2 series. I recommend current users to stay on 0.2.x – at least until the 1.0 release. I’m verry sorry for this and in case that there are requests I may write a small script that will help you switch to version 1.0.

pBlog Version 2.0

This version introduces some very imporant features:

  • Own page for every article
  • Social sharing buttons (at the moment: google+, twitter, facebook but more will follow)
  • Disqus integration
  • Local config file -> no more editing the index file

pBlog 2.0 is only partially compatible with prior versions. You don’t have to change anything in the posts or intro file (in case you have one), but to switch to version 2.0 you have to replace your index.php with the new one. With this step all your settings like the title will be lost and you have to set them in the new config.php file. For more questions write me a mail to marcelmichaelkapfer@yahoo.co.nz.

In the near future I will spend more time in writing a documentation about the blog engine and adding more comments (especially in the css file).
