In preparation for the big and long-coming release of AdaptCMS 3.0, a majority of recent work has been bug testing. We've cranked out a lot of bug fixes on the Templates and Users features especially. Although it was working, the forgot password/reset password/activate password functionalities were redone as they were originally made to be as small amount of code as possible - as I know now, that isn't necessarily always good.
Work on a new plugin also started and concluded, check inside for the details as well as a scoop at a possible new project.
With the launch of the new Insane Visions website now a week past, we have continued to add functionality and make fixes. With the transition from AdaptCMS 2.0.4 to Beta 3, some fixed to URL rewriting were made and we have launched the upgraded support system - check it out here.
The new system is fairly simple, but is an upgrade over the past and we plan on updating it in the future. In the meantime, all support requests for AdaptBB/AdaptCMS should go here. We also fixed a few bugs with the poll, so voting for non-logged in users should not be an issue anymore. Posting comments should also be good-to-go for guests.
With some bugs worked out, the focus will be going back to content updates. We should have another few tutorials in the upcoming few weeks and a blog on the progress of AdaptCMS Beta 3. Stay tuned!
Hoping to start a line of these mini-tutorials, I'm going to start today with a small script utility for Symfony 2 that will redirect users with a flash message accessing a page they aren't alowed to. I should note, this will not interfere with Symfony's authentication that will redirect a non-logged in user to the login page - that is something separate.
It was a bit of a risky move, but we decided to launch the new InsaneVisions website and at the same time, move both it and AdaptCMS.com, setup email and all that goes with it. So the short-term bad news is there may be bugs here and there, but we will be looking over logs in the next few days-few weeks to keep an eye out on those.
The great news is that Insane Visions has finally received a facelift! Sporting a bootstrap theme and running an early version of AdaptCMS 3.0, this site is back to the modern ages. With a new look also means tutorials will start up again and there should be a few up shortly.
Another upgrade is the forums. Now sporting the new AdaptBB Plugin along with the new layout, the new commenting system on articles and we will be stocking up the media library.

It's been a while since the last blog, since the last one AdaptCMS Beta 2 has released and work has started already on AdaptCMS Beta 3. While there will be some new features, largely it will be bug testing and browser testing.
Before Beta 3 releases, the new InsaneVisions website will launch. We have the content ported over, users (but you must reset your pw) and a new design. Right now we just need to setup the redirects for search engines and then we will be moving everything over to the new server (including adaptcms.com), this is a process so we are going about it carefully. I expect by the end of this month that everything will be moved over and the new site will be up, can't wait!
Read on to learn about some of the new and upcoming stuff for AdaptCMS Beta 3.
It's been a long time coming, but a new version of Insane Visions is coming soon. Part of the reason for the lack of posting is the ability to post tutorials is low due to the layout - it's so small that it's hard to see text. We are currently working on a new version that we hope to get up in the next month - it will be a little rushed, but we want to get traffic up and to do that we need articles and to do that, a bigger layout.
At this point we expect it to use the newest version of AdaptCMS and the new AdaptBB once converting scripts are written. This is just a short notice, stay tuned!
A little less than two months after the first public release of the new AdaptCMS 3.x line, Beta 2 is now available in a limited release. The new version brings the first base version of AdaptBB and many plugin additions altogether. (asset management, permissions, settings and more) Much of the work also was refactoring code - this lead to improvement in code overall and numerous bugs as well as fixing a few area where stability was a concern. A wordpress converter was also created, which could see the creation of similar conversion tools.
This release is limited again because there is still much left and our first full blown public release will be 3.0. Before now and then, there will be one more Beta - this will knock out any bugs we find, any browser compatibility issues and likely will involve some cooler things. (possibly a few more plugins, possible LESS integration)
Once Beta 3 is decently under way, we will likely then look at what all will be done with it and what will be done with 3.0 before release. Once the sites that will launch are done behind the scenes, we should have a good idea of a time period when it will release and will post here.
Included are instructions on how to install this version. We just ask to report any issues (or suggestions) and that if you start to use this release for a public site - you can upgrade, this started with the first beta - but we recommend waiting for 3.0 to fully release as we have not done a sweep for security issues/bugs.
Below are some of the biggest reasons you should sign up:
In the end, the number one priority of Insane Visions is providing a site with a lot of useful content for web developers and a community where people help each other. If you're interested in that, sign up!
