    Good work :)

    Only a small thing I should tell you. Is it better to change in language part of Wiki the text

    “Version 0.703.x (current)”


    “Version 0.703.x (old revision)” ?

    Migration from 0.803 to 0.804 worked without any problems!
    But you have forgotten to update the version-number to 0.804.
    In the maintain-section (check for updates) it’s still 0.803.

    Anyhow, GREAT WORK!
    Keep on going that way! I love FlatPress!

    Greets, Falko

    If you wanna see my blog the url is
    It’s still FlatPress 0.803 because I will first finish testing 0.804!

    One thing I have just discovered and that is you can’t type “quote” marks. If you try it comes out like this /”quote”/

    @Martin, first of all you should use the forum to report a bug, second you’re not providing steps to reproduce your issue

    when do you think you will be making a new version? because every version is so much better than the last..

    I’m working on it; I’m reading a lot of documentation: the next release will be focused on making the backend more reliable (better indexing and such).

    Thank you for your good words :)

    Just wanted to say that I just found FlatPress and I think it’s great!
    I’ll be tweaking mine before I write it out on the Wiki, so hold on! :)

    And btw, I copied the text off the wiki and are going to translate the most of it to swedish if that’s okay? :)

    I was planning on only uploading the changed modules to my blog site to implement this version. I found 18 modules that were different between .804 (svn 146) and .804.1 (svn 189). They are listed below.

    * adminpanelsconfigadmin.config.tpl
    * adminpanelsentryadmin.entry.write.php
    * adminpanelsstaticadmin.static.write.php
    * fp-includescorecore.fpdb.class.php
    * fp-includescorecore.system.php
    * fp-includessmartypluginsvalidate_criteria.isNumber.php
    * fp-interfacelangen-uslang.admin.entry.php
    * fp-interfacelangen-uslang.admin.widgets.php
    * fp-interfacesharedtplsatom.tpl
    * fp-interfacesharedtplscomment-rss.tpl
    * fp-interfacesharedtplscontact.tpl
    * fp-interfacesharedtplslogin.tpl

    * fp-pluginslightboxplugin.lightbox.php

    SVN can’t lie ;)

    honest: I suppose you’re right :P I can’t tell right now, but if you just did an svn diff then it’s probably as you say :)
