Here are some more of my reference sheets (one on plugins/tools development and one on security). dokeos-185-tools-and-plugins-quickref dokeos-185-security-quickref I think with that I cover all basic questions a new developer might have, except the system to install/upgrade a Dokeos install (changing SQL queries) and the way to actually query the database using the Database class.
It's been ages since I first thought I should publish a quick reference sheet for Dokeos developers. It's now done. It's a first version but I think it will be really useful to new Dokeos developers. It is already useful for me (particularly for $httpHeadXtra and $htmlHeadXtra), so I don't doubt that bit. Dokeos 1.8.5 Quick Reference Sheet It is published under the Creative Commons BY-SA license (Paternity, Share-Alike) and I have the SVG format locally, so just ask me for it if you want to extend it.
I thought I'll write a short update on what we are doing at Dokeos at the moment, so you don't think we're just sleeping through the summer holidays... Eric and Julian, of the French team, are currently working on a project for a specific hospital management school in France, and on a large and long-time review project before the migration of portals to version 1.8.5 for an important Belgian client.
In Dokeos 1.8.5, in the admin screen that allows to add users to a session, we have implemented an AJAX search, or in human words, a search box that dynamically generates a short list of the users which contain the search string. This feature is only enabled when you have more than 100 users, because the users list would otherwise be very long to load. If you don't like this feature, and would like to keep to a straight, classical, 5000 users list, just change the main/admin/add_users_to_session.php, line 232, change "100" to "5000" to put the limit at 5000, or just remove the option by sett
I've had to review the SCORM content migration from 1.6 to 1.8 just today, and really, this is not something I'm enjoying.
Yes, we have our first annoying bug in Dokeos 1.8.5.
It might seem kind of weird to mention it, but I had somewhat of a big scare when Secunia sent us an e-mail entitled "Security Patches in Dokeos 1.8.5". If my fears had been right, it would have meant that we would have needed to re-package 1.8.5 only two days after the official release.
[digg=http://digg.com/tech_news/Dokeos_1_8_5_released] Dokeos 1.8.5 has been released, after a long 8 months development! Check it out on http://www.dokeos.com/download.php There's a lot to say, so I won't comment about the release itself in this post. You can find out more about this release and what it brings you on the official website, by following the link on the right panel. We are sorry to have kept you waiting for so long for a new version, but we're sure you'll understand why when using it!
For the ones of you who are using their own CSS, there are a few changes that have appeared in Dokeos 1.8.5 that might affect you... First of all, we have removed the "default" style (in the Dokeos package, that is, so it won't affect you if you are migrating from a 1.8.x).
