Today 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.
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.
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.
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.
We're taking a quick poll to see what feature our users want in the Sitemason CMS. If you'd like to see something else entirely, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a suggestion!
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.
Thanks to its use of Webkit, the browser rendering engine used by Safari, it is fully compatible with the new Sitemason interface.
