[SVN1013] Your (user) feedback on installation and SEF URL
« on: February 14, 2011, 05:16:39 PM »
We would like your feedback on the following:

In the topic http://www.rsgallery2.nl/nightly_builds_rsgallery2_joomla_1.5/available_nightly_builds_posting_guidelines_downloads_16610.0.html you'll find an RSGallery2 package with a new feature: aliases to use in SEF URLs!

As of SVN 1013 RSGallery2 v2.x for J!1.5 will change your database: a field "alias" is added to the files and gallery tables. This field alias is filled during installation, which is the reason that the version number is already bumped to 2.1.1. After installation there will be a 3rd SEF option within RSGallery2, the first two ("no" and "yes") are the same as in the 2.1.0 release (they won't use the alias field), the 3rd will use a different way of creating URLs and will use the alias field.

Feedback on this feature is appreciated:
  • on the installation process;
  • on Joomla SEF URLs with the new option "Yes (using number and alias, no need for unique aliases)";
  • on whether or not you think that in the next release the "alias" field should also be used for the "yes" option.
You can use this thread for your feedback.

Note: Only use the SVN1013 on a test server, do not use it on a live server and be sure to have a backup!

With a little boy in the house I don't spend as much time on RSG2 anymore.

I still like RSG2, if you do too, please think about how you can invest some of your time in RSG2... the one remaining coding volunteer (Whazzup) can use your help!
