    I just wanted to let everyone know I'm maintaining a ongoing changelog of 1.1 on the wiki:

    One of the new features I'm most excited about is the new filter code, which allows you to set execution priorities on filters and also adds the long-needed remove_filter function.

    Hi there Allusion,
    Which section of Admin is this under?
    I also noted a host of new lines in the mod-rewrite area. What are those for please?
    Thanks

    I installed the updates from CVS and now have the preview...but, the whole point of a preview is to see how it looks with our own CSS, not the CSS used by the admin pages. So this really doesn't do any good, at least not for me. Does anyone else feel this way?
    I was thinking more along the lines of previewing the post in the index.php somehow. If the author is logged in, allow them to view their drafts when looking at the actual blog.

    I think it helps hows it is.
    I think (though I may be wrong) the idea of this is to show that your general formatting and links are working as intended.
    At the end of the day the formatting in the admin is not really gonna be any different that your own styled content is it?

    Perhaps we should use an iframe to accomplish this.

    What a about a "preview" button with a pop window that shows you how your post will look formatted without showing the entire index.php. I beleive text pattern has something like this.

    Fiona, I also agree that this helps, but the formating could be very different since the admin uses it's own css file. As an example, I include a picture and give it a class to make it float right or left. The admin css doesn't have any of this. Of course you can add your own css to the admin, but that defeats the whole purpose.
    An iframe might work for this, but I'd suggest some type of preview button that opens index.php with a single post page showing your draft. I'd like to see the preview in a full size window, not just the iframe.

    A popup window was how b2 did it.

    We can add a "live preview" that uses index.php.

    A pop-up preview a la b2 would be great. One of the features I miss most about b2.

    I second that steevak! I miss that preview feature!

    BTW if you're running a nightly you need to run uprgade.php to get the latest 1.1 features.

    Is there anything special I need to do to see the new clean syndication rules work? I am running the nightly from 8/2/2004 and the link http://domain/feed/rss2 is giving me a 404 error. Clearly I'm missing something and I guess its still part of the learning curve...

    You need to visit the permalink options page, turn on permalinks if they are not already on, and cut-and-paste the new rules shown there into your .htaccess file.

    whoa, the rewrite rulez are becoming huge. :D

    Add to that two more rewrite rules that let you have clean author links. Example:
    /archives/author/ryan/
    /archives/author/ryan/feed/
    You need to run upgrade.php for the author_name query to work.

    One of the things I like about TextPattern is the ability to switch between the code and the "rendered" views of the post whilst writing it. I'm developing a group site for people with no markup savvy what-so-ever, and although I'm using WordPress (nicer code in my opinion) I wish it had that TP preview feature for the sake of the people who'll be using the site.
    I still think WP is the best choice though :)

    I preview by putting a password on the entry, so that only the title is visible to visitors. When I'm finished writing, I remove the password to open it to the public, who of course are dying of curiosity to read the post by that point ... yeah.
