Sitemason 6 Watch: Interface Font Icons

Screenshot of Sitemason's custom font icon set

For those of you keeping up with the Responsive Web Design movement and/or the progress on our new interface, we're extremely excited to show off our new font icons. As part of the interface redesign, Kevin Kennedy went back to the bottomless well that is his creative mind to invent Sitemason's own font icon set.

If you're saying, "Wait a minute, did you say Font Icons? You must be confused." I'm so glad you pointed out my penchant for confusion, but in this case, I'm not crazy. Read on for an explanation, or checkout the full Font Icon Set if your idea of a good time is perusing Webdings. Now who's crazy!…

Vimeo & UStream Video Support

Today we expanded our video support for web video outside of YouTube to include Vimeo & UStream. You've of course always been able to embed videos in Sitemason tools, but now you can use the native video support in Sitemason to display internet video for the big three services; YouTube, Vimeo & UStream for live streaming video.

Assign Tags to Multiple Items

Assign Tags to multiple items screenshotToday we're announcing a small improvement, but one that our power users have been clamoring for. Until now, it hasn't been possible to assign tags in bulk to already-existing items. We've rolled out a simple Assign Tags option in your Articles menu that now makes this a breeze.

Captcha Added to Custom Form Tool

The Custom Form is Sitemason's oldest tool, but it's also one of it's most powerful. It hasn't gotten a whole lot of attention in the past year, but today we're adding the option to include a Captcha to verify human entry of a form. Sitemason's form spam filtering continues to be top-notch, but for those who would like a little more control (or security especially on credit card processing forms), a Captcha is an ideal tool. For those who aren't familiar with Captcha, this Wikipedia article explains the ropes. We are opting to use the nearly ubiquitous captcha.net

Sitemason HTML5 Boilerplate Template

For those interested in developing websites on the Sitemason CMS platform, your starting off point just got a whole lot cooler. 

Inspired by the work being done at html5boilerplate.com, Sitemason beefed up their own boilerplate adding lots ofHTML5 goodness and bunches of new Sitemason PHP Library methods. 

Go checkout the boilerplate!

For more info, read up on the improvements that were made to the PHP Library in the Sitemason Developers Group.

PHP Templates get printRelatedArticles();

 

Today we added a new PHP method to our ever-growing framework. This is a simple way to add related articles for your blog or news feed. The tag-based call by default grabs the 5 most recent articles using tags it detects in the currently viewed article. 

Sidebar Forms

We just added a feature to allow forms in sidebars to submit in place, so the user stays on the same page rather than being sent off to a confirmation page.
