My sincere thanks to Nick, Bernard and the rest of the YACS team for all the hard work and creativity embodied in YACS.
NickR

8.4 introduced more extensive use of tabs on administrator screens.
Maurer Steve
on June 19 2008 at 08:29 pm GMT
Fair enough
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:27 pm GMT
I wont be long...
8.6 is a heavily tested version of 8.5, there are no new features, just bug fixes and tweaks from 8.5 to 8.6.
Maurer Steve
on June 19 2008 at 08:27 pm GMT
Oh then I stay
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:27 pm GMT
OK, let me say a few things about 8.6.
Maurer Steve
on June 19 2008 at 08:27 pm GMT
Gonna go play baseball, see u later!!
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:26 pm GMT
Superb.

Neale Justin
on June 19 2008 at 08:25 pm GMT
I thinks that is my main one for now. I have given Bernard a long list of requirements /wish list over the last few months
Just submitting my feature request now.
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:24 pm GMT
Could be worse, you might have to try and understand english speaking idiots :D
Justin, is there anything else you would like to chat about ?
Maurer Steve
on June 19 2008 at 08:22 pm GMT
I agree, I do understand wanting to have a native (french) based discussions.....so I guess my lack of French is my problem>
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:22 pm GMT
Mobile YACS, hmm, that would be very hard on a small screen, but maybe we could have some mobile tools (like you get desktop blogging tools).
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:21 pm GMT
Bernard has done a great job of creating a very usable CMS. It might not be the prettiest or feature rich, but it all works together really well.
http://www.ngrhodes.co.uk/images/article/94/DSC00001.jpg - all fixed now

Be carefull on your motercycle.......
NickR

Not as fast paced response as Drupal or joomla.
Maurer Steve
on June 19 2008 at 08:19 pm GMT
But, u guys have done an amaizing job.......maybe a mobile YACS one day
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:18 pm GMT
NJ. Yes it can be fustrating !I really like YACS.
I am usually around when I am not crashing motorbikes and breaking arms :(
Maurer Steve
on June 19 2008 at 08:15 pm GMT
Really?? that would be good
I like YACS but am going to have to switch in the future, very difficult if you dont speak french
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:13 pm GMT
NJ, Yeah, its got a special button that nukes the internet ... (joke :D).
Justin, are you aware of the form that you get on ebay for uploading images if you sell an item ?
http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/sell/photo_tutorial3.html#standard_basic - it is very well designed, I would use that as a basis for the GUI for bulk upload.

Neale Justin
on June 19 2008 at 08:12 pm GMT
I'd like to see features that encourage use, if a user has to zip files first, they probably won't get around to it.
Maurer Steve
on June 19 2008 at 08:12 pm GMT
Is 8.6 going to hold any new suprises?

Christian
on June 19 2008 at 08:12 pm GMT
To develop this tools you must put the idea in new requirement and vote for it

NickR, that is exactly what I am thinking of
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:10 pm GMT
Yes, that is an example of bulk uploading
http://www.uas.alaska.edu/faculty_support/UASOnlinev3/Library/Images/bulkupload.gif
Another option is as in that image, selecting multple images then clicking upload once to upload all at once.

Christian
on June 19 2008 at 08:10 pm GMT
Bernard propose to upload a zip file with many photo

Some tools allow you to drag and drop from the desktop or select multiple files when you click on 'upload a file'

Christian
on June 19 2008 at 08:09 pm GMT
Ok : we discuss of that at Chonas during testing

By bulk upload I mean, selecting multiple files in one go to upload to a page or section
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:09 pm GMT
Uploading MANY files at once.

Neale Justin
on June 19 2008 at 08:08 pm GMT
Sure I will do that this evening or tomorrow.

Christian
on June 19 2008 at 08:08 pm GMT
What is bulk upload ?

NickR

If you could make a feature request at http://www.yacs.fr/section-38-new-requirements it would be great, I want the feature as well, so might end up writing it

Neale Justin
on June 19 2008 at 08:07 pm GMT
Sounds promising, a big part of my role is content management so lots of files and pages published on the site. Anything to help speed up the process would be great
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:05 pm GMT
Simple answer is no. I have been pulling together some code for image galleries and there is no bulk upload for images/files that I notice.
ot be too hard to implement though. We have code to extract zip files or upload to the inbox folder on the site, could write something that attaches the files to one article.

Neale Justin
on June 19 2008 at 08:03 pm GMT
I don't develop YACS sites (yet) but use it extensively within our company. One thing that would help me a lot is the ability to do bulk uploads of files, be it pictures or attachments, is there an easy way to do this ?
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:03 pm GMT
OK, ask away, I will let you know if we can answer...

Neale Justin
on June 19 2008 at 08:02 pm GMT
Well my requirements are more on the user side and less on the development so not sure if this is the right place or not
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 08:00 pm GMT
Right, better carry on. Justin, anything you would like to discuss ?
Maurer Steve
on June 19 2008 at 08:00 pm GMT
Thank you both Nick and Christian!!!
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 07:59 pm GMT
I thought I was going mad, must of misread it first time round...
Maurer Steve
on June 19 2008 at 07:59 pm GMT
I can take it from t
NickR
on June 19 2008 at 07:59 pm GMT
Its the chunk of code under // link to yacs if we are at the front page
Just delete/comment it.

Christian
on June 19 2008 at 07:59 pm GMT
Exactly !
