Pulse Pro 1.8.2

Mar 18, 2012

Pulse Pro 1.8.2 is now available for download. Here is a list of what's new:

Flexslider

The current slider gallery option in Pulse, Galleria, is being replaced by Flexslider http://www.woothemes.com/flexslider/. It's a very nice, clean looking slider that is fully responsive and even has touch swipe support for mobile devices. If you previously set up a gallery with the old slider, it will be automatically replaced with Flexslider if you upgrade to 1.8.2.  

See Demo Here: pulsedemo.net

There are several options you can change by editing includes/gallery.php which are mostly self explanatory.  Here are the defaults:

slideshowSpeed: 6000,
slideshow: true,
keyboardNav: true,
directionNav: false,
controlNav: true,
animationDuration: 600,
pauseOnAction: true,

PHP code in blocks

For maximum security, PHP has always been disabled in blocks. If you tried to enter any in a block, it would automatically sanitize and remove the PHP tags making it useless. This was done both by the core Pulse code as well as CKEditor itself.

I have now removed the filtering in the Pulse code. So only CKEditor is blocking PHP code. But I have added a line to ckeditor/config.js that, when uncommented, will allow PHP code if you so desire. 

// config.protectedSource.push( //g );

This is more of an advanced feature and not everyone will need it, but it makes Pulse more flexible to those who want to use PHP in the editor. One possible use case is putting a gallery embed code inside a block.

Google + Button

In addition to a Facebook like button and a Twitter tweet button, the blog now has a Google + icon to round out the big three social sharing sites.

Small fixes in form.php

Some layout tweaks for the contact form.

Flexslider is a stunning replacement for the previous slider! I'm really excited to implement this for the first time! Hope there's a way to make the slide image's link to other pages, then it will be just perfecto!

I have been recommended PulseCMS by a friend, who told me there is a free, cut-down version that I can trail. Where do I find the download for that, please? I'm not prepared to shell out $25 for the product unless I can trial it properly first. Thanks!

Ali - The free version has been discontinued. You can try the demo and read the documentation if you have any questions about the product. Also, the three day return period should be more than enough to give it a test run. Most software companies dont allow returns at all once it is "opened".

Hi;

It would be great if the gallery have "change order" option - just simple drag and drop and rearenge.
