Parent-children relationship between texts
You can now use the
#parent directive in a text, which will become
its child. A child text will not be listed in the categories listing
and will inherit them from the parent.
#title Example #parent my-other-text-uri
The infobox will link to the parent, and the parent will have a box pointing to the children.
The support for attached files has been extended. You can now upload audio and video files (you will probably need to tweak the max upload size in the admin) and create pages to display them without the infobox.
#ATTACH t-t-test-1.webm t-t-test-2.pdf t-t-test-4.mp3 t-t-test-3.mp4 #title File Gallery #blob 1
Resulting in such page:
A new option has been added in the admin, "Speed up the publishing process", which will skip the revision page if you have the permission to publish and there are no conflicts. Also when the publishing is complete, you will be redirected automatically to the target page.
This makes sense if you are the only one working on the site and the publishing procedure seems too long and kind of gratuitous (it's not, really!) to you.
The version 1 of the ACME protocol is going away soon, so Amusewiki is
now using the version 2, thanks to
Debian packages are available for Stretch and Buster at
Custom category types
You may need more flexibility than just authors and topics. For that
you can now create your own category type, e.g. publisher or location
(You can find the admin console at
Then you would add to the header:
#title test custom formats (all) #publisher My publisher #location Zagreb Text...
And they would appear in the text infobox.
/category/location you have the listing of the locations.
And the location page
The development for Amusewiki 2.4 started in the late spring 2019 developing a new feature, the "nodes", to overcome the limitation of the single level author/topic structure and to gain the ability to build arbitrary trees of texts.
Sometimes this approach can be better than having the category hardcoded into the text, but it's your choice. You can use this or the classical system, or both.
The feature is still marked as experimental, but it can be accessed under /node
A quick demo would probably give you a better idea of what is about.
Enable ipv6 ports on nginx
Bump dependency on Text::Amuse to bring in the short form of headings
Add site option no_autoassign_pubdate (GH#330)
Fix bug with arbitrary pagination size in the pagination widget (the current size was not displayed if not a standard one)
Fix crash on /opds/search with non-latin1 characters
Introduce an experimental feature for parent-children relationships between texts (GH#208)
Include deferred texts in search results for logged in (GH#327)
Replace cronjob with unit file for nginx reloading on demand (GH#326)
Upgrade the encryption of user passwords
Refactor the password resetting feature asking (GH#328)
2.412 2019-12-01 [SECURITY]
Restrict remote repositories set in the web interface to git/http.
In some configurations with hostile users, having local gits could lead to information disclosure of other repositories (setting the remote path to a known local git, the merge will not happen, but the commit summary would be listed).
Extend the use of datatables and localize them (GH#324)
Permit the creation of custom category types beside the predefined authors/topics (GH#311)
Use Text::Unidecode instead of the custom code
List and allow to use existing custom formats in the BookBuilder as preloaded settings. (GH#320)
List and allow to use existing images as cover in the BookBuilder (GH#314)
Allow custom format selection in the header (GH#310)
Add binary attachments to the infobox (GH#309)
When a text is not published, redirect it to /console/unpublished instead of a 404 for logged in users (GH#316)
To take advantage of the new BookBuilder features with images, you may want to reindex the site with amusewiki-bootstrap-archive --refresh. This step is however optional and doesn't prevent the normal functioning of the sites (you're just not going to see the images as available on the BookBuilder until you reindex the affected texts).
Add CLI options to control the jobber polling interval and parallelization.
Add id attributes where missing in the top bar, for better styling
Upgraded RU localization
Improved express publishing
Upgraded HR and IT localization
Net::ACME2to get Let's Encrypt certificate using the new protocol, given that the old one is getting sinked soon.
New site option: express_publishing. If in effect, the publishing procedure is speeded up and if no conflict is found, the text will be published right away. This is useful if there are no external contributions.
Add List-Id to our mails, so clients have a chance to pick it up.
Support per-format template files via newest Text::Amuse::Compile
Added experimental node system. It's accessible to logged in users under
/node. The basic functionality is there. Probably needs refinement with locale-aware sorting. This permits to create arbitrary category trees.
Added experimental feature for adding binary files like video/audio. Available in the configuration panel.
