Although version 3.2 is not a major version release, it is packed with new features. Some are visible immediately, and others are behind the scenes. HTML design layouts have been improved to allow administrators to more easily use the fonts, colors, and custom codes that they specify. The file uploading system has been completely overhauled, giving full control of all files and folders in your directory tree. For new users, the installer is much more advanced and includes several templates that can be chosen during setup.



Major Enhancements In Version 3.2

  • A new File Manager for managing all files/directories.
  • More file upload capabilities (including attachments to topics).
  • Updated admin screens for easier access and maintenance.
  • Completely redesigned setup page for more customizable installations.
  • Unicode support in SQL Server and MySQL.
  • Pages can now have a thumbnail image and full photo attached.
  • Page sub-menus are fully customizable.
  • Many new DMG Admin Codes giving more access to the database through your HTML Design Layouts.

    New File Locations

    The location of some files has changed in version 3.2. The setup files (setup.aspx and setup-update.aspx) have been moved to an /INSTALL directory. When you go to install or update your application, you will want to copy all of the version 3.2 files to your web site and browse to the following location.

    http://YOURSERVER/YOURSITE/INSTALL/setup.aspx

    Or setup-update.aspx for upgrades.

    The source files have been removed from the root directory and have been placed in their own /SOURCE directory. To run the compiler, you can access it here. When you run the compiler from this directory, it will still replace the DLL files in your root /bin directory.

    After installing your site, the files you can safely remove are the entire /INSTALL directory, the /SOURCE directory, and /bin/setup.dll.
