BalfBlog roadmap

I'm starting to produce a new version of BalfBlog each month, similar to how ZPE works.

I'm starting to produce a new version of BalfBlog each month, similar to how ZPE works.

This will allow me to add new features every month that make huge changes to the way you can use BalfBlog.

Here are a list of new features set for the middle of May:

  • New custom alert boxes
  • Validation on forms (something I have wanted to have for a while but as I've rebuilt it, everything has changed so much)
  • CSS, JavaScript and PHP tidy up
  • A central database query generator
  • A tidy up of the IA of the system
  • User preferences
  • All Ajax posting will also have an equivalent non-Ajax version and vice-versa.

A huge change has recently made BalfBlog even more object oriented, now the whole core of the system is being divided up into smaller classes, all of which are included appropriately when needed. This makes it easier to develop in BalfBlog.

BalfBlog needs to maintain its focus and not get lost the way that some other CMSes have. The focus must be on getting it to the level where it allows you to produce articles and blog effectively and not stray from that. Plugins will soon be available to improve features but not detract from the original aim.
