SharpEdge CMS Launched
======================
Version 3.36.50 is the first community launch of SharpEdge CMS. It has been, being used on my own and client websites for sometime now, and I've finally decided to launch it as open source under the MIT License. I've also included various license files in the package.

PYRO_License - The installer is based off pyro's installer from about a year ago, some bbcode
CODEIGNITER_License - for obvious reasons Big Grin

If someone thinks I missed something please let me know!

Some more information:
SharpEdge is always under development, and I have many plans and improvements to make. The Gallery System doesn't have full language support so changes to this system are planned really soon.

The Slideshow system will be completely re-designed and will also include a responsive image slider.

I will be also adding a Video System which will likely support only youtube out of the box, the product system will get much more features going forward as well.

If your really reading all of this, you may have noticed a hint at a forum module. This module is currently in development and I did make a post sometime back on here about it. it's still going along, and will eventually be either downloadable add-on module or included in the Core CMS.

Why Version 3? what happen to Version 2 and Version 1?
Quite simple really I started working with codeigniter several years ago back in the 1.7 range. I built a very basic CMS than which was Version 1. Later I added more functionality into it and that eventually made it version 2, but I later wanted much more and Version 1 and 2 didn't have language support, and I also learned a lot doing a custom website for myself which that project took almost a year to develop. So

This is really where Version 3 came about which was really a complete re-write. I also wanted to design the system so it was easy to update and I would for the most part avoid stepping on existing websites with these updates. So version 3 to 3.3x I was making sure it was designed this way. The Updater will not mess with any of your custom themes, and will provide information about template file changes that you should make after an update. This saves me hours of work in the end, and allows the software to be maintained.

Inspirations
Pyro CMS's Admin UI is nice and clean in someways the SharpEdge UI is inspired

How do I install it?
1.Simply download the package from the : https://purdydesigns.com/billing/downloa..._36_70.zip
1a Or you can download from the repo at github!
2.Unzip the archive somewhere onto your computer
3.Upload all the files include in the package to your websites html folder (public_html, httpdocs)
-> 3a Suggested (change the encryption key included in the /sharpedge/config/config.php file)
4.Create a new database using your control panel on your hosting.
5.run the installer script included in the package by going to yourwebsite.com/install
6.Follow the onscreen instructions. (You'll be asked to create your admin login during this process)
7.Delete the /install folder from the server
8.that's it, you should be able to login and start using SharpEdge

Problems?
- If your getting an internal 500 error when running the application.
--&gt; Open the .htaccess file and remove the deflate and expire headers code from this file.

Any other problems send me an email or report the issue on github. Smile

Suggestions.
- To make your own theme folders and build your design in those folders. The Updater will make changes to the default_bootstrap theme when files get updated but your custom themes will go untouched. This will allow you to apply those updates to your themes yourself.

Feedback?
Love to hear it! Smile

Latest Update is on github 3.36.54

I updated CKEditor to 4.0 and fixed a few small bugs.

3.36.54 is also available via the updater module within the CMS.

My noobness with github. noticed it deletes empty folders. The GitHub repo has been updated to include these folders. many of which are really important to functionality of SharpEdge. Most of these are in the assets folder. So if you downloaded from github I suggest downloading again and making sure all the proper folders are in place in the /assets folder.

I've also added a demo here: Demo: http://demo.sharpedgecms.com/en/auth/login
login info (demouser and demouser)

file uploads have been disabled on this demo.

Read the OP, it's in there at around line 15.

Version 3.36.70 is available now.

This completely re-structures the widget system which also allows for massive global changes with ease. Menu system gets a slight update with drag and drop sorting, via AJAX. I'll likely be using this in other areas soon.

Basically the widget system is now using relational database tables for the pages and modules. So they are now loaded from those tables now instead of from the pages or modules tables.

If your already using an older version you can update using the updater module. Otherwise a new package is listed on the OP, and the github repo is updated as well.

I haven't tested it on localhost. It's probably a path issue or the php configuration.

Try re-write short tags yes in the codeigniter config /sharpedge/config/config.php

and make sure .htaccess mod_rewrite is working too. mod_headers as well.

See if that makes any difference.

and actually you have it in a sub folder

so you need to edit the .htaccess file to add the /sharp part to the index.php part.

So this file in the install folder.
Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php?|assets|sharpedge|admin|themes|combine\.php)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ install/index.php?/$1 [L]

to this

Code:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php?|assets|sharpedge|admin|themes|combine\.php)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ sharp/install/index.php?/$1 [L]

you'll also have to do this on the root .htaccess file as well. (just without the /install part

Hi! This CMS looks very good!

Installation went easy before the last step.
After entering database name and default user info, I get: "Install Failed!".

I've tried to install it twice, same error. I've checked the database, tables have been added, and the user also. I guess database.php.bak should be writable, because when trying to open main page, I get: "The configuration file database.php does not exist". I'll try one more time...

Update: It works! Both database.php.bak and config folder should be writable.

Some other folders inside assets should also be writable.

Thank you and good luck!

P.S.
Please provide more instructions on crating themes/templates/layouts.
I guess we have to use Twitter Bootstrap CSS classes and id's.
