Couch 1.3 finally sees the light of day :)

12 Feb 2013: This version of Couch has been promoted to become the release version 1.3.0 available from the main download page http://www.couchcms.com/products/

couchcms-1.3-RC1.zip
(1.68 MiB) Downloaded 712 times

With the new version, two very important features make their debut:
1. Repeatable regions
2. Relationships between pages

Repeatable regions
This has to be the most requested feature for Couch. Now we can define an editable region only once and then create as many instances of it as we like for every page.
Please see http://www.couchcms.com/docs/concepts/r ... gions.html for more info.

Relationships
This feature allows us to create relationships between pages of different templates e.g. between manufactures and products or artists and albums etc.
Please see http://www.couchcms.com/docs/concepts/r ... ships.html for more info.

Version 1.3 also introduces
- A lightweight alternative to CKEditor.
Please see http://www.couchcms.com/docs/tags-refer ... cedit.html for details.

- A new tag to create thumbnails.
Please see http://www.couchcms.com/docs/tags-refer ... ail-1.html for details.

Please download and test CouchCMS 1.3-RC1 (link at top of this page).
As always, your comments (or criticism) are welcome.
Thanks.
Thanks Kamran! The 'Repeatable Regions' are very welcomed as well the rest of the new features. I will test it the next couple of days.

Keep up the good work! :)
I'd just like to add thanks for your continuing development of this excellent CMS. With repeatable regions and relationships now added, I can finally drop Expression Engine for good.

For what it's worth, I think you are 100% right using Ioncube Encoders to protect your work. You deserve to continue to be paid for the effort you are putting in. Don't be persuaded otherwise! I will be purchasing licences for all future projects, and encouraging other web designers to do the same.
@martijnbokma, @nfwd
Thank you very much indeed for your kind words.
Your continuous support drives us to make Couch better. Thank you.
So far as I can tell, repeatable regions are working as intended... although there is one small bug which could be squashed - as you can see in the image below, there is some overlap of fields within the admin area.

I don't know if its relevant, but just for completeness sake, here is the code I used to generate the repeatable region:

Code: Select all
   <cms:repeatable name='hero_slider' label="Hero Slider" >
      <cms:editable type='image' name='slider_image' label='Slider Image (700x277)' />
      <cms:editable type='text' name='slider_description' label='Slider Description' />
   </cms:repeatable>

Hi Daniel,

That is not a bug. You can use the 'input_width' parameter of the editable regions (of type 'image' and 'file') to set the width of the textbox.

The other parameter that you might want to use is the 'col_width'. This sets the width of the columns.

Hope this helps.

OK, fair enough - although it seems to me, if no width has been specified, then the default should be 100%, as to avoid issues such as this for people that haven't specified a width.
Hi I am not a developer though I maintain a website.. Couch pull me thinking about the features and making me work.. I really loved it.. currently m using couch cms 1.2.5 .. does these repetable regions and relationships work with it or should i upgrade to 1.3 package? if so how should i update? should i upload the folder by unzipping the files directly to my existing couch folder?
@Robert,

The 'repeatable-regions' and 'relations' features work only with v1.3.
It is very easy to upgrade your existing Couch installation to v1.3. The directions are contained within the downloadable zip in a file named 'INSTALL.txt'.
Yup I have upgraded to V1.3 now :)
