Major Additions

  • Concrete5 is now localized. If you're interested in translating C5, check out the forums or the feature requests section of the site.
  • Improved installation process should do a much better job at detecting all C5 requirements, including isolating whether safe mode is on, checking file permissions, database access, etc...

Feature Updates

  • Form block now has a configurable "thank you" message.
  • Asset library has quick upload ability: upload one file through the browser, bypassing the flash uploader entirely.
  • Guestbook can now use C5 authentication via a parameter. This makes it so that the guestbook can't be filled out unless users are logged into C5.
  • certain multimedia content will be disabled in edit mode, making it easier to edit.
  • Making TinyMCE use full URLs and not convert (for placeholder storing and server migration purposes) - making TinyMCE use a CCM_CID placeholder for future conversion into pretty urls
  • You can now delete users and groups from the dashboard, when logged in as the super user.
