In Impresscms everything is good, and needed I think.</p>

<p>But (and no critisism) there is this intrigueing Q about modules and page (blanks OR module-page) implementation.</p>

<p>page(empty or module)&nbsp; -&nbsp; block positions&nbsp; -&nbsp; theme-data - template manager - module(install area)<br />
&nbsp; //&nbsp;&nbsp; many possible alternatives both for physical and visual connection.</p>

<p>... and where those should best be placed in admin area? For me as user (as publisher) this is much a topic wich make the site a mystery or comprehenceble.</p>

<p><br />
This could perhaps be in a new thread.</p>

<p>I only had access to the old DHTML editor, now I have the WYSIWYG one and the problem has gone away, thanks.</p>

<p>Is this Tiny MCE?</p>

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

<p>Possibly - which editor did you see up until now (I just changed it for registered users)?</p>

Testing Line Break Unchecked Not working for me. Maybe permissions are involved somehow?

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

<p>I uncheck the Enable line break whenever I post using the WYSIWYG editors and the line breaks work appropriately then.</p> <p>Initial post of this reply has the option checked (enabled)</p> <p>The post displayed properly for me and this section was added with the box unchecked.</p>

Re: time based custom blocks

<p>No, at the moment there are no time-based blocks in the core. If you want to, you could do it with an auto task.</p>

i want to show the block for certain period only

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

There is a theme manager block that comes with the system module. If you look at how it works you could probably set the theme for any given page, I imagine it is just one line or variable.

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

You think it is possible to code a "Theme manager" that is more adoptable to 2 or more page-themes? - - and some control-pointer in module-install module (or similar)? < - - .# - -> Is there any Bootstr. 3.3.7 (was it?) yet? <- - # - - > Being the most [easy cms/features] makes reputation // walked.

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

<p>No, I have the Enable line break checked.</p>

<p>Do you uncheck the box below to Enable line break?</p>

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

<p>I noticed as well, and it is strange that you are having problems with line breaks and others (like me) don't. I see several possibilities : browser, os, user group. Or worse : a combination <img src="https://www.impresscms.org/uploads/smil3dbd4d75edb5e.gif" alt="" /></p>

<p>I don't have the opportunity at the moment of testing this in the short term, so I appreciate any help on identifying the issue</p>

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

BTW re. my problem with linebreaks: If I preview the post, or edit it after submission, it looks fine (linebreaks are ok). So it seems that the linebreaks are being stored correctly in the database, but they are being removed when the post is actually *viewed*.

Re. security I suspect we there will see some major changes at Wordpress soon in the way their plugin system is managed, because it has become a security nightmare (check out the supply chain attacks described in the <a href="https://www.wordfence.com/blog/" rel="external">Wordfence blog</a>). It is a good lesson for us also, if we move towards having a curated repository.

Re. speed, I am wondering if a review of included files and libraries could help. Perhaps there are some things that could be consolidated, removed or made optional?

Themes are another area where there are major speed boosts to be had. I have been playing with some really nice free Boostrap themes lately - and while they look great, they are *huge*. Mainly because of un-optimised artwork but also because of the sheer amount of Javascript libraries that are being bundled with them, some of which are old versions with security vulnerabilities of their own.

Re. language, one idea may be to add language as a standard field on all content modules (eg. 2-letter ISO language codes). That would give us a $critieria to filter content by. I think there is a list of languages in the core IIRC.

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

<p>There was a draft of "Impressimizing a Theme" started a while ago - would be good to dust off and revisit.</p>

<p>I'd be interested in how Composer could help with performance - any hints on how to do it? I believe there are still other performance improvements to recover in the core - again, 1.3 performs better than the 2.0 betas.</p>

<p>I can agree with making it a standard requirement, as long as we support it with testing.</p>

Re: Reputation and impresscms traits

I love "freedom!" as the shout of Mel Gibson in Braveheart. <--#-->

I was only wondering about why bootstrap is better compared to 12cols "grid" in w3c? <--#-->

You think it will be possible to return to easy install also with now used "master index html" for all pages combined? <--#-->

I'm only a user but know some about html AND css. I have made a few in training examples with xampp earlier. My conclusion is that the now present themeing possible is a block for peeps at my level. - - Is it possible to use a index1, index2, index3 ...etc (which is set for each module somewhere in a new module) ?
