PHPFusion 9.x Development Plan - WiP

Last updated on
FalkSuper Admin
DISCLAIMER : This is only a draft. Items may increase or decrease.

Develop an automatic version checker and a remote update / patch system for PHPFusion Versions.
· a Version checker can be sufficient as first release. Perhaps a top bar notification in Admin. ( Done ).

· All text forms need to be able to handle paste file from clipboard / drag and drop.

Boiler Engine
· Complete and implement The Boiler Engine for full framework flexibility. To Enable switching between Bootstrap, Semantic UI etc etc, system wide. ( Semi Done ).

Hooks System
· Complete and implement The Hooks System. ( Done ).

Develop and implement a Core based Tag system
· Suggesting Toxi Method with a 3 table solution, it is supposed to be the fastest in most scenarios
· This need to be a global API similar to Comment´s , display_tags(tag_id,item_id,type, etc, etc), save_tags(), edit_tags() , update_tags() functions.

Develop and implement a Core based Action Log System
· save_user_action(user_id,where(Blog,News,Members - ETC),action(Delete, Add, Ban, Edit - ETC),date);
· A complete Administration tab for this system with filters and history

Document saver function with history options
· save_document(user_id, type,data);
· Automatically save your work in a history table with hierarchy (main_item_id > session_id > history) as you type on a timed interval if computer crashes or you make a mistake.
· Every time an edited document is saved we create a snapshot in the history table of the old document that can be restored to a previous content.

Develop and implement Integrated Help Systems
· Automated Tutorials and Guides integrated in the Administration

Increment Comment system to allow more interaction
· Vote up and vote down
· Replying to comments
· Direct capture of images ( Paste to field and it auto uploads )

Add Tesseract´s file browser system as a replacement of current file browser. ( DONE )

Find ways to allow more types of WYSIWYG editors to be used globally as plugins

home.php only account for News,Blog,Articles & Downloads while it excludes Forums,Gallery FaQ, Weblinks and Polls.
· Forum will display a nice latest threads panel once enabled so for that Module it is not needed.
· Gallery, Weblinks & FAQ should be treated as all the other sections.
· Create a Core API for Infusions that scans the installed Infusions folder for API content and populates a MVTed home.php with it.
· The MVTed home.php default box can be similar to News Boxes and have a nice top bar GFX for each section.
· The API controls number of items to list, char lenghts to use on an Infusion level while the Theme controls the layout via the MVT system.

includes/ip_handling_include.php are redirecting banned people to google per default
· Create a separate MVT - landing page for these similar to maintenance.php that let´s people know that they are banned, include even temp bans etc and how to appeal the ban

Make The Administration 100% Multilingual
· Remove all Database Locale inserts system wide and only use locale files for everything to achive the above.
Smoothest method might be to separate db_admin and Infusions admin. Make a new Admin for Core > db_core_admin. Leave Infusions and we prevent Infusions API re-write. ( Done ).

Time Date Settings
· Add customization options for Registration dates ( profile ), visit dates, Blog dates.

Database support
· Add $settings['mysql_port'] ( Done )
· Full Support for MariaDB ( Done )
· Check the MYSQLi Driver Core Driver ( Semi-Done )

[Custom Pages]
Need to be more completed & more tested

· A more complete Administration interface where we can arrange scanned content in real time with customized sections and background images for each section as an extension of the Theme Engine.
· Add some default layout templates for users to load.

· Add a comprehensive error handler report system that reports what went wrong and why something failed Infuse attempts.

· The live preview system our News have is needed here as well
· Definable panel width´s. Support both % and pixels

· Search modules should be able to reside and be scanned in each installed Infusion/Panel folder ( Done )
· Permalink modules should be able to reside and be scanned in each installed Infusion/Panel folder. ( Done )
· Print need a new API such as search where we put a module in each Infusion/Panel folder and scan it for a print plugin

includes/core_mlang_hub is used to set the correct site language for requested content with out redirections if linked to non default language contents
· We need an API for each installed Infusion/Panel folder that contains required configuration, perhaps like BBCodes but on Infusion level with interface options.

· Today the settings are today defined in maincore.php, $settings have been prepared to not be global, amend and remove all the globals from maincore.php ( Semi-Done )
· Complete the fusion_get_locale function so we can call it in one line like, fusion_get_locale("", NEWS_LOCALE); ( Done )
· Specific Core Infusions and their respective db definitions should be separated from this file for each Infusion that acts as Infusion. ( Done )

The Administration need to have a new Tools section containing a minimum of,

Name reservations and name blocking
· Allowing full names and wildcards pretty much as we do with domains.
· All names starting with PHP_ should be able to be reserved ( Naturally, a Super Admin should be able to add em manually )

Members (members.php)
· MVT it
· Add some more info´s like display the Avatar, User Web etc..

Option to list unverified accounts

· Setting to display read or not read by receiver with date and time.

· a simple str_replace('<script>', '') & str_replace('javascript:', '') can sanitize it all to be safe.

Quick Ban, Edit
