Since I am finished with my goal for the week, already, I think I'll spend the rest of the week working on the Dashboard and on a new Blocks system. By Dashboard, I mean adding support for the Dashboard to applications, so I can actually manage settings, users, privileges, applications, etc through the Dashboard. The blocks will be an ongoing experiment, but finishing that should be a goal for an upcoming week soon. I'll probably spend a little time working on the CF documentation as well, if I have time.

New Theme

I've uploaded the newest ClayCMS theme here. It's called simplestyle_4, based an HTML template of the same name. There is a link in the footer to the site that offers the template. I'd like to design a new theme myself, but this is still a huge step up from what I had on here before.

Blocks

Working on themes always makes me think of Blocks. I think a blocks system will be in an upcoming Goal Week very soon.

Theme Progress

I've been working on my new theme for Goal Week. It's based on an open source template, since I don't have time to entirely design one myself. It's looking really nice and already puts this one to shame, which I did design. Of course this theme, named empty, is supposed to be an example theme - simple and to the point. I think I spent all of an hour putting it together and most of that was improving application templates. Anyway, I've spent a few hours adapting the open source template I downloaded and it should be ready in a few days. I'll probably put it on the site once it's finished (which is relative since nothing is ever finished).

So I finally go the site updated, what's next? More updates. There are lots of things left to do. I need to finish my HTML filter, so I don't have to filter all HTML out of my Blog posts. I need to add the Application admin to the Dashboard, as well as some of admin hooks. I also want to get the user profiles finished and allow users to register here. once users can register I will add make it so the Blog app becomes multiuser. I'm trying to decide on how to do a comments system also. I still have to finish writing the docs for Clay Framework and start on the docs for ClayCMS. I still need to add admin components to System, Privileges, and Users application. There are lots of things left to be done...

PHP 5.4RC and Changes (warning and notices)

The next version of PHP, which I am running here now, makes PHP a stricter language. That's good, but when you've been writing code for a long time sometimes you do not realize you are doing something wrong if it works. That has been the case here. I noticed some PHP warnings showing up a few weeks ago here. They had upgraded PHP to the latest RC, which I unfortunately run PHP 5.3 on my developer machine (not for long). The code on this site was almost a year old and I checked the code I would be uploading to check for any coding errors. It looked correct in my dev code. Unfortunately I had a class method returning a string, but some code that was using was older and expected an array. This was cauing warnings to show up, as it was being treated as an array, which is wrong.

Site Upgraded

I updated the site around 5pm, as planned. Unfortunately I ran into some problems, then I had to stop working on it for a while. The good news is the site is back and the my blog is restored. I did a clean install and just imported my old blog posts. It feel good to finally have the dashboard on here :)
