    Posted: 21 Jan 2014 at 19:55

Greetings openElement community!

After months of extremely hard work, we're thrilled to present our latest stable version, v 1.44:

http://download.openelement.com/openElement.exe

Fixes:

 

·         Several bugs corrected, including SMTP mail sending, Image Zoom, etc.

·         Fixed error with opening pages when a user’s name contains special characters

·         Improved performance: opening/refreshing pages, selecting/de-selecting elements, and moving elements now much faster.

·         Fixed Pop-Up Menu error, as well as errors in renaming pages created with Database Packs.

 

New Features:

 

·         Element Editor: Version 1.43 includes the beta version of openElement’s Element Editor, which will allow more advanced users to create and edit new elements.  The documentation isn't quite ready yet, but we'll soon be adding examples in a new sub-forum.

 

·         Custom Classes: You asked, we listened. Now users can enter one or more classes for an element under Properties and in Styles/Customize for a Style Zone - useful for CSS and JS scripts

 

·         Responsive Design Tools: Possibly our most requested feature, and here it is… A set of tools to build responsive pages using relative content (Responsive templates will be released soon).

 

o    Containers (Group of Elements) with Relative Positioning: Position and align elements relative to one another by using new buttons on the element/containers or the Element Explorer.

o    Overflow/Scrolling Properties for Containers: Useful for removing undesired scrollbars in containers.

o    Bottom Bar: Change size in pixels or % without losing the "physical" size (automatically recalculates between units).

o    Using the mouse to move or resize an element/container does not lose "%" value (automatic recalculation), and preserves CSS values for Right and Bottom Distance if Left and Top are deleted.
 

o    Ribbon Menu (Top of Editing Pane):

§  New button in Page Tab toggles between Default Size and Full Screen (100% page width).

§  New option in Page Tab -> Styles Button called "Size in Browser.” Select how the page body should display in a browser (as opposed to the editing pane):

·         100% width in browser (choose if it’s easier to edit the page without passing to 100% in the editor)

·         Height Adapts to Content: When using elements with automatic height (multi-line text, database-linked dynamic elements, or any element that could change size in the browser), the page’s height will adapt automatically to changes in content.

·         Automatic Height: Choose when using "relative" positioned content in the page body. Responsive templates will use this option.

§  In Selection Tab, new options to change size (width/height) in pixels, percentage, or automatically.

 

·         Copy-Paste in Specific Spot: Just right click on an unoccupied part of the page and select Paste to Paste the element in that particular spot (does not work in containers)

 

·         New Buttons in Top Menu: "Other" button in Project menu, which allows users to 1) open the current project folder, 2) Make a backup of the project (in a ZIP file), or 3) Open a "Notes" text file.

 

·         Switch Any Page with Home Page: in the Site Explorer (left), right-click on a page to turn any page into the Home Page (the old Home Page will replace the page taking its place).

 

·         Float Images in Text Elements: Users can now specify Float properties and other CSS (margins, etc.) for images within text elements (Single-Line/Multi-Line Text). This is useful for wrapping text around an image and generally customizing the layout (not to mention the responsive implications).

 

Improvements:


Database:

 

·         Automatic Installation of Packs. It is now easier than ever to install the User Space and/or the back-office system + dynamic elements. Just double-click on simplified automatic installation, fill out a few important settings. Then, openElement will create the administration pages and place the corresponding packs automatically. Previewing (F12) the first of these new pages once will be enough to initialize the system of Packs you've just installed.

 

·         Multiple corrections within Packs

 

·         Dynamic Elements: Pack #80 (Dynamic Item List) now supports pagination, and a new pack – Pack #81 – contains the list of page numbers to display all articles, one page at a time.

 

·         Several new Packs have been added in category UserSpace01: "21" - a mini-login form (updated) to place on any page of the website (even the home page); "80" - a container that only displays elements if the user is logged in.

 

·         Basic/Detailed Pack Configuration: When a Pack is unpacking, only the most important settings will appear in the configuration wizard (the "Detailed Mode" checkbox is unchecked). Reconfiguring the Pack displays all possible settings, unless you uncheck "Detailed Mode."

Hi.

This is strange that English was not detected as your language. Did you already use openElement before on this machine?

Please start OE, and find a topmost bar with small buttons, one of which is Configuration (having 2 gears as its icon). In its sub-menu Langues, you can set English language.

Good day
D

I've never used OpenElement before. Downloaded it for the first time last night. It has English chosen as my default.  Everything on the Home Page is in French.

There's a difference between the project language and the application language. I think that you have English as "default culture" for your project, but that openElement's interface itself is in French. Please check the topmost menu as described above.

Did you download the software from the openElement website or from a third party? We had a language issue with a prior release, but the version available online now should be fixed. 

Please try downloading from openelement.com/download.htm

Some templates may have some residual French terms, but for the most part, they're fairly language-neutral. (The gibberish in text areas is usually randomly generated Latin).
