BlogCFC 5.1.003 Released

This is another minor update.

A method was added to remove all unverified subscribers. This will help clean up spammers from your subscribe list.

Charlie suggested a nice fix for the "too long" url issue in the recent comments pod.

I added editing instructions to the admin. I get multiple emails from folks asking how they do certain things in blog entries, so I thought this would help.

Critter's Gravatar Thanks mate!

MrBuzzy's Gravatar Say I wanted to see the code changes from 5.1.001 to 5.1.003... should I use SVN for that?
I have Tortoise, it seems I can only choose revisions by whole numbers, ie '5'.

Raymond Camden's Gravatar Tortoise lets me see such changes if I do it file by file. Not sure about over all files.

Critter's Gravatar What about an option to verify a subscriber?

what I mean.. Let's say granny subscribes to the blog, but for one reason or another misses the blog email.. it's junked.. or something... she never sees the verification email.. I can go into the db and do it..

just a thought...

Raymond Camden's Gravatar As you noticed, I didn't let you edit subscribers. I could add that so you could verify. Adding a simple Verify Selected will be a pain as I use one custom tag for all the tables in the admin.

Raymond Camden's Gravatar What errors?
# Posted By Raymond Camden | 7/31/06 11:56 AM
Carl's Gravatar Ray,

It almost seems like the top of the mysql.sql file was cut off. Below is the error:

Line no.:120
Error Code: 1231 - Variable 'character_set_client' can't be set to the value of 'NULL'



# Posted By Carl | 8/1/06 8:53 AM
Carl's Gravatar Oh, and the server is running mySQL 5, not 4.1.

# Posted By Carl | 8/1/06 8:58 AM
Raymond Camden's Gravatar Odd. So looking at the diffs, I don't see anything dropped. Oh wait. Now I do.

Try adding this to the top.


If this works let me know and I'll update.

Error Code: 1231 - Variable 'collation_connection' can't be set to the value of 'NULL'

Carl's Gravatar I took these from the old version and added them to the new one and the import ran sucessfully.


I'll let you know if I see any issues setting up or using the blog.

Thanks for your help and for the great app!
