I still received the errors. Only on the write tab (so far).

Even with the new version 0.6?

No worries. Hope you didn’t have too much extra trouble with disabling the plugins and such.

Re: rah_post_versions: Revision control for articles, forms and pages

My friend, let me just echo what’s been said on this thread…
This plugin is really a great contribution to textpattern. With this and some of the new additions to textpattern,
I think textpattern is poised to rocket up with exponential growth!

My two cents…
TJ

If you are asking if it allows you to run multiple enviroments of one install (site), then no. It’s a revision manager; it stores revisions and comes with a revision browser. That sort of development enviroment is not what the plugin is ment to do and is not planned.

If you are asking if saving revision could optinally turned off based on the production status, then why not. That can be implemented.

I’m so sorry about my english … :/

But I think you got it.

Actually, I am thinking for months in a plugin that could offer an online dev/test mode. I’m now always editing my blog templates directly online. I am too lazy to edit on local and then copy/paste/transfer my theme and forms online.

So I was looking for a way to get a restricted environment on my website, where I could freely edit and play with plugins, forms or articles. When all would be ok, I only should have to “publish” the whole thing to get it accessible to everyone (i.e. in production environment).

I think that a versioning system is the first step to get something like this. That’s why I asked you my question. And you answered it well. :)

Thank you, I hope that this post is more readable than my previous one (I tried conditional sentences :/ ).

Re: rah_post_versions: Revision control for articles, forms and pages

Hi Grégocentrique:

You could copy your database from production enviroment to local enviroment, do all the work, and then, dump it back to production (or just the necessary tables, like pages and forms).

Or you may want to try with cnk_versioning as a way to editing pages and forms directly as files on the filesystem.

That’s precisely the kind of stuff that I wish to avoid. :)

I’ll try it. Maybe this plugin deserve an online to local transfer. ;)

Thank you!

Maybe this is not what you need, but for ‘shutting down’ the site during development you can use rvm_maintenance.

Thanks. It could be useful to hide the website during (short) modifications.
