Nová verze

The following changes have been prepared and implemented:

1. Now Two-Factor Authentication is added. This feature can be enabled Engine Settings of Control Panel. If it is enabled all users are able to activate Two-Factor Authentication in their profile settings. When user activates this type of authentication, a one-time PIN is sent to user’s email address as he/she logs in using the own username and password. That one-time PIN must be entered to get an access to user’s account. With this setting user also enables "IP change control" and "Browser and device control". This option improves the security of user data greatly. For example, if account login data is stolen, it is still not enough to access the account, since access to user’s email address becomes necessary.

2. New {twofactor-auth} tag is available in user profile template (userinfo.tpl). It displays the check box where user can enable or disable Two-Factor Authentication.

3. Articles counter for each category is added. Articles are counted in each category taking into account various site settings and parameters of the article. For example, if article is published in a subcategory and subcategory articles display is enabled in parent categories, then this article will be counted in all the parent categories. However, if parent category is also specified in the category list of this article, then the double counting will not be performed. The most effective method is used to count this data, which allows to save memory and reduce loads. For this, MySQL server does its part of counting, and PHP does the rest part. Also, the counted articles are cached if caching is enabled on the website. Although the optimal counting method is used, this option increases the server load, so you can enable or disable it in engine settings of Control Panel. This counted data can be displayed in different ways which will be described further in this description.

4. Now you can make and display category menu in templates. {catmenu} tag is used to display category menu. This tag can be used in any template file, it is global. It uses and embeds categorymenu.tpl template file. In categorymenu.tpl template you can use the following tags:

[root] text [/root] – displays a text between them when initially generating the menu template. These tags can be used to create the appearance of the menu. For example, to add some HTML elements, or elements which are not included in a category list.

[item] text [/item] – represents a single category list item when forming category menu list. Text between these tags is displayed with HTML appearance customized for each list item.

[sub-prefix] text [/sub-prefix] – displays text between them as a subcategory prefix if a category is parental and it has subcategories.

[sub-suffix] text [/sub-suffix] - displays text between them as a subcategory suffix if a category is parental and it has subcategories.

{sub-item} – represents subcategories in a parent category if it has subcategories. This tag is used only within [item] [/item] tags.

{name} – displays a category name. This tag is used only within [item] [/item] tags.

{url} - displays a category URL. This tag is used only within [item] [/item] tags.

{icon} - displays a category icon. This tag is used only within [item] [/item] tags.

{news-count} – displays a number of articles of the category. This tag is used only within [item] [/item] tags.

[active] text [/active] – displays a text between them if a viewed category or article is of the category from the menu. This tag is used only within [item] [/item] tags and is usually used to emphasize active categories form the menu.

[isparent] text [/isparent] - displays a text between them if a category is parental and contains subcategories. This tag is used only within [item] [/item] tags.

Here you can see the example of a simple category menu template based on ul and li HTML tags:

[root]<ul class="catmenu">[/root]
[item]
	<li><a href="{url}">{name}</a>
	[sub-prefix]<ul>[/sub-prefix]{sub-item}[sub-suffix]</ul>[/sub-suffix]
	</li>
[/item]
[root]</ul>[/root]

 

5. {catmenu} tag may not only be used to simply display the category menu, but it can also be customized. The following parameters can be customized for this tag: {catmenu id="1,2,3-5" subcat="yes" template="custom" cache="yes"}, where:

id="1,2,3-5" – is a list of ID categories that you want to display in the menu. You can list several categories separated by commas, or specify a range of IDs with a dash.

subcat="yes" - This parameter takes "yes" or "no" value and is used in conjunction with "id" parameter of the tag. It defines for a specified list of categories whether it is needed to connect subcategories automatically. For example, if there is a category with ID 1 and it has subcategories ID 2 and ID 3, then the category 1 and its subcategories 2 and 3 are displayed by {catmenu id="1" subcat="yes"} tag. And just category 1 is displayed if {catmenu id="1" subcat="no"} tag is used.

template="custom" – is a template name to be used as a default menu template instead of categorymenu.tpl

cache="yes" – This parameter takes "yes" or "no" value and indicates whether it is needed to cache a given block or not. When caching is active, the ability to control the emphasizing of the currently viewed category using [active] text [/ active] tags in the template is unavailable automatically.

Тhus, thanks to the given features, you are free to make a menu of any complexity and appearance in a template, and then after doing it you can manage it from Administration Panel, in categories managing section, without having to manually edit these templates.

6. A new global {catnewscount id="X"} tag is added for templates. It displays the number of articles within a certain category, where X stands for ID of a needed category. This tag is useful to display the number of categories in manually created menu templates.

7. A completely new HTML code parser is added for articles editing. This parser is used to filter the incoming HTML code when writing articles and static pages. The new parser, unlike the old one, not only checks all the entered text on the security of HTML code, but also automatically corrects user errors in the code. For example, it closes unclosed HTML tags, removes incorrect CSS styles, and fixes bugs related to the validity of entered HTML code. Along with the new parser features, HTML code checking is carried out much faster than in the old parser (in comparison with the previous 11.1 version)

8. All the HTML code generated in articles texts by DLE is transferred according to the HTML5 specification instead of the outdated XHTML.

9. A completely new user password storage system is added in MySQL database. Earlier md5 algorithms were used to store passwords hashes, which have become obsolete fairly quickly. They allowed to get the original password using brute force method if an attacker gained access to the password hash. The new password storage system uses CRYPT_BLOWFISH hashing algorithm, which currently is considered as an attack-proof cryptoalgorithm. This update is designed primarily to protect the original user passwords in case of the database crack, for example, if an attacker gains direct access to the database. Since original passwords are not originally stored in the database, password hashes change is performed in the "soft mode" as users enter the website using their usernames and passwords. Thus, all the existing passwords work, but as users log in, the hashing algorithm is replaced. Also, a new password storage system provides an automatic password hashing algorithms update as soon as new cryptographic algorithms appear for PHP, thereby password hashes will always be stored in a safer way.

10. Thanks to the new password storage system, when a website account connects to a social network account, the initial password no longer resets. If you are a previously registered website user and logged in using a social network, you can no longer continue to use your old password to log in.

11. A more simplified insertion of flash movies and flash players is added. Now the engine will automatically turn the code of a flash video in the safest form, instead of just removing it from the article text. Even though Flash technology is outdated, many websites continue to use it.

12. Now you can restore the forgotten password directly on the page of entering to Control Panel . Also, the password recovery algorithm is changed. Previously, password recovery was disabled for groups that have access to the Administration Panel for security purposes, supposing that administrators will not forget passwords from their website. However, practice has shown that these people forget their passwords too, which led to password recovery problems and to manual editing of the database. Now all users who have access to the Control Panel are always forbidden to recover password from the website, but they always can make it directly from the login page of Control Panel. In order to secure administrator passwords from the recovery in case if, for example, administrator’s email was hacked, Administration Panel address can always be renamed with a unique name, thereby making this page unavailable for the other people.

13. Now mass mailing and messaging can be performed in Administration Panel by choosing a registration date duration of users to send them messages. It provides an additional flexibility for mass mailing.

14. Now mass mailing and messaging can be performed in Administration Panel by choosing a range of users’ last visit dates to send messages to these users. It provides an additional flexibility for mass mailing.

15. Articles sort order by the date of edit can now be used to display articles with a custom format using {custom ...} tag. For this order="editdate" parameter is used. For example, if {custom order="editdate" sort="desc" limit="5"} is used, then the last five edited articles are displayed. This displaying method is useful when you need to show the recent information in the news block, e.g., when links are updated, etc.
