FLEXIContent 1.5.3 announced, includes front-end editing

FLEXIContent logoAs you might have read in my post about FLEXIcontent earlier today, I was hoping for front-end editing capabilities in the next version of the extension.

Now, I'm happy to announce that FLEXIcontent 1.5.3 will have front-end capabilities. The final version will be released later this week (Tuesday og Wednesday).

But, if you want to download it now, you can get the SVN release today.

Version 1.5.3 of FLEXIcontent has full front-end submission capabilities, with custom fields.

Other new features include the ability to display subcategory items in a parent category page, a mini gallery plug-in, show_intro parameter overriding: global -> type -> item, auto publishing feature for front-end submission form, add events to the content plug-in, JCE MediaBox for pop-up type in field image and much more.

See below for full change log.

Control front-end permissions with FLEXIaccess

The new FLEXIcontent version will work with the also upcoming version 1.0.5a of FLEXIaccess. This extension is used to control access to front-end elements.



Download the SVN version now

When the final version is released, you can upgrade easily. You should be able to upgrade your excisting installation without any problems. But, as always, do a full backup of your Joomla site and database before upgrading anything.
