Minor Release X3.24.3

13 Jan 2018, 17:33

Minor Release X3.24.3
Following the release of X3.24.*, we have now released minor update X3.24.3. We almost released it as X3.25, but since there are only bug fixes and improvements (nothing exciting), we opted to release it as a minor update.

Updating to X3.24.3
Easy

Navigate to X3 Panel > Tools > X3 Updates, click "update now".

Bug Fixes [X3.24.3]
  • Fixed panel image sorting bug when in grid mode [forum1] [forum2].
  • Fixed panel protect page, which did not correctly exit "modal mode" on SAVE [screen].
  • Fixed page settings > gallery > captions > caption defaults > Default Image Title, which broke in previous release [forum].
  • Fixed so panel emailer uses FROM when sending "forgot password" email (database-version only).
  • Fixed a bug where the relatively obscure screenbox gallery setting was corrupting the menu carousel [screen].
  • Fixed bug in footer icon links (settings > footer) where custom colors might not get inherited into the menu contact dropdown [screen].
Improvements [X3.24.3]
  • Hidden Index (home page) is now included in site object (preload site) and sitemap, even when it is hidden (unlike other hidden pages). This is logical, since you will almost always have a link (logo) to the home page, although "home" is hidden from the main menu.
  • "Logo title" setting now displays at top of logo settings [screen] regardless of "Logo type" (text or image). When using image logo type, the logo title is used as the image ALT attribute. We had to avoid using two inputs for the logo title, because some browsers don't like duplicate ID's [screen].
  • Settings > Advanced > Block image downloads now also blocks VIDEO downloads [forum].
  • Diagnostics now checks for PHP XML and mod_auth, which are required by X3. They should be core part of a server, but I noticed some dev-servers were missing these extensions/modules [forum].
  • Panel allow upload of font file types [forum].
  • Panel allow X3 update from non-licensed websites with {url}/panel/?ignore_license [forum].
  • Menu modal target (show page content in popup modal) now also accepts a link. This is useful because some visitors (including myself) may cmd+click a link to open it in a new tab. You can see this effect in action at www.photo.gallery ... Click the "demo" link, and it will open a MODAL showing various demo links. CMD+click the "demo" link or "open in new tab", and it will open the X3 demo directly (and ignore the modal).
  • Bigger and clearer arrow icons for 2nd+ level topbar dropdown links [screen]. Also avoids icons from breaking to new line [screen].
  • Custom Fotomoto "buy" links no longer accidentally trigger "open X3 popup" on click.
  • Several code optimizations.

I was gonna write a "status update" post within a few days. Been mostly busy updating our infrastructure lately (forum, websites, new servers, new emails, Flamepix servers, mailchimp, postmark, cloudflare). Not very exciting, but enlightening, and many concepts we will be pushing to X3. I will be starting a new X3 version shortly.

Nothing to do with new X3.25.0, but this is from the X3UPDATER script. PHP curl_exec() simply fails:
Code
if(!curl_exec($ch)) return "FAIL: curl_exec()";
PHP Curl is required for the X3 updater to be able to download ZIP files from our server to yours. It could be your host/server has disabled this feature for security reasons, or disabled it for remote hosts. If this doesn't work, you would have to download and install the update manually.

Thank you Karl, manually did the trick, but...
After update on both my sites the front page slideshow works, but when you go into galleries, I keep getting the loading circle and no images...also inside subgalleries. 
Reverted to 3.24.3 and all is fine again.
Best, G

I can only diagnose if you have a link with X3.25.0. Could you install a new X3.25.0 (minimal) in a /test/ directory somewhere on server and provide me with a link? Thanks.

@GeoPal: I received access to another users server seemingly with the same problem. I will look into it.

OK, both issues have been solved and X3.25.0 release has been updated.

@Overmaster: If you want to force re-update from the panel, add parameter /panel/?force_update in panel url. Also, you may need to empty your browser cache to make sure your browser loads the updated X3.25.0.min.js from our CDN.

I didn't yet get time to post anything about this release, but I will do so tomorrow.
