Got comments/questions/suggestions? Leave them in the comments and we'll add them in when we can.

So, we just hit 0.8, and we're getting ever-closer to the big launch. Only seems fair that we have a big checklist for 1.0 (as well as the other issues here).

Features:

  • Plugins
  • Idiot-proof installer. Let's crush all these bugs that keep popping up.
  • Simplified UI (more on that).
  • Drag-to-add media (drag a file to the screen, add/detect type).
  • Simplified/smarter themes
  • Full documentation.
  • A simple API
  • Mobile view/iOS app (but probably not the latter)
  • Markdown WYSIWG (bold/italic/etc. toolbar, very simple)
  • Namespacing table names.

Bugs:

  • Search functionality
  • content directory
  • mod_rewrite issues.

UI:

By 1.0, it'd be nice to have a consistent, super-minimal UI framework across both Anchor and Roar. The goal is to:

  • Remove as many decisions as possible
  • Remove as many obstacles as possible
  • Be as simple and usable as possible

That means we're going to need the computer and server to do a bit more thinking, but this could be the best-designed CMS out there.

Awesome, so psyched for this. Must discuss my side project with you (which you're aware of).

Couple of suggestions:

  • Tick box dropdown custom field types
  • Ability to add custom fields with the functions file, stops a theme with special fields being database dependant

Looks like a solid roadmap so far.
+1 on David's suggestion for theme specific custom fields.
Perhaps the option to add a short description when creating custom fields, to be shown on hover when creating posts?

Tags possibly? So you can mark several posts several attributions. Unlike categories which is more a filing method.

Mobile view FTW. That would be awesome. Simple API would be great too!

Auto-update would be cool, but only if we could modify/override some core functionality from within the theme. Until then, I wouldn't like my site to "auto-break" every time a new version comes out.

@chrisgwynne export? Do you mean when uploading a js or css file you'd like to be able to reference it for a post rather than using a style block? Those fields are for minor additions and special cases, not entire re-theme of a site.

@daviddarnes like on VisualIdiot.com for example, each post has its own styling and has it's CSS/JS saved as such "/posts/mailappapp/style.css" or "/posts/anypost/style.css". Having inline CSS/JS is always bad.

If the theme is made as expected the styles will be placed in an internal style sheet and the same for the js, which isn't inline. And yes if you wanted to do completely custom pages you could create a custom article file.

Custom HTML would be a nice addition as well, the default editor isn't that handy when you try adding custom UI elements like the ones in twitter bootstrap.

@borisovg Post description shows the snippet of text you add to the desc field on the post page. By default if there is no desc nothing is shown but it would be easy to add a quick if else statement to display whole post if desc is null. (this is going a little off-topic)

@Simonclavey So the desciption is only shown in list view, not on the post itself, which is not the same as the "more" tag. To get the desired result I would have to copy paste a part of the post into description, which means duplicating content. :-(

@borisovg O okay so you just want to show a snippet from the actual article. Just make a new function that returns the first ~140 characters of all your articles on the post loop page.

In 0.9 we change the article_description function so that if you enter a short desc it will use that if not it will get a snippet from the content, I think this was discussed on the forums too.

The advantage I will see is for client. Exemple, you have to different type of post, one is blog post and the other projet. The two different type of post have different custom field. They also have different permalink.

I'd like to have most things (like the custom post types with custom URLs) as a plugin so it keeps the base CMS small and fast as it is.

The more you add everything to the core the more it becomes overweighted like most other CMS with lots of built-n stuff.

What do all others think? Built-in or rather plugin? In my opinion plugins are the better solution and for sure a good documentation of all plugins like anchor Themes - could also host it on Github or at least creat a respo so everyone can fork and add their own plugins.

I think this is a great idea, as having a modular CMS will make it easy for everyone to tailor it to their own needs.

You don't care about SEO? Fine, you don't have to! You want a grea homepage slider? There's a plugin for that!

The above situation would be ideal for most cases, and I agree with @kevin.

Let's keep it simple, stupidly simple.

Will it be possible to Create a plugin hooking into core and make a custom post type?

If so it would be ideal if "post" class should simply called with a extend in order to intiate a new class for a post type... If possible(?)

Many of the top results from a quick google search result in incorrect community-sourced examples, and can obviously create a headache for new users.

when you guys use the @ thing ... try and use the drop-down feature and choose from the list.

When you enter just the first name of the person you are responding to ... it doesn't reach them. It reaches some random person that registered just their first name as their username ... and bugs the shit out of them.

In this case, that was me.... good luck on the 1.0 release though. Looks neat.

Agree, it's overkill for regular user, but they still can download repos from git as zip file.

Advanced user can have bower.json in plugin dir and can easily get information about new versions can combine zip files resources and git repos resources. Can ignore all plugin sources in his private repo (because is somewhere else).

This is great! I see "Drag-to-add media (drag a file to the screen, add/detect type)" is checked off. Does that mean it's being worked on? To me this is a pretty important feature to have. I got it working (basically) in my local copy and could work on it more and commit it but I'm concerned it's already been done and I'm missing something...

Oh.. and if I'm not being clear I'm referring to uploading images via the drag and drop.

@yckart It is already possible as long as you know the slug and set the post as 'Draft' it's essentially a preview. Only issue with this is I believe that's all it is, as in as long as anyone knows the slug they can see the post so it's not completely private.

About the image insertion (which is already done, right?), will the user have to create a custom field for every image they want to add to a post? I hope not.

@Simonclavey, it should really just return a 404 if the user isn't logged in as an admin.

P.S. Any tips on getting involved / contributing?

Nope, I believe it just adds the image to the content folder in the root of the anchor installation and then it gets required when the post is viewed.

Are there any specifications for how the plugin framework should be implemented? I wanted to work on it and wasn't sure if there were any design documents outlining desired attributes, functions and structure for the plugin feature or any of the proposed 1.0 Features....

The current implementation of Post Variables lives in the meta table. Are there plans to move this to a separate table?
As a plugin generated Post Variable(think wordpress shortcodes) will likely not be used for site meta data, the options are to:

  1. store plugin/non-meta variables in their own table.
  2. simply move all the current entries to a more generically named table,(maybe a "variables" table?).

Which option do people prefer?

Have you all seen Ghost yet? The Markdown editor on it is really nice. As it's open source I propose we rip it out of there and use a variant/fork for Anchor. I was playing with it earlier so here is it ripped out (without the preview) and ready to be edited.

Forgive me for the silly question but how does it work? Is it mainly the styling you're looking at? We've also looked at the medium editor too, but we could merge the two?

Codemirror just a syntax highlighter. They have the textarea set to use custom Markdown styles and they're using a js markdown renderer to render the preview.

There is another good syntax highlighter called Ace that Github uses in gist snippets but I was thinking it might be easier to just modify Ghost's.

Having played with the Ghost demo a few weeks ago, I've had it in my mind to create a fork with similar functionality to their live side-by-side markdown editor preview, but haven't had the time to explore it. Think it would make a very nice addition.

Some better SEO out of the box would be good. Anchor doesn't play so well with search engines :/

What specifically would you want to be added that would count as better SEO?

Two requests:

  • Date/Datetime custom fields
  • Possibility to change the Content-type of a template (for instance, to make a JSON API; may already exists, but I haven't seen it anywhere)

With SEO I think adding the ability to add all custom meta tags per post, so you can specify the graph values per post. I think that would be very helpful.

On a system level, what I liked about wordpress was choosing which template I could use. So on this post use this template, a little like @Idiot has done with his site. That would be very useful.

Also if you need a mirror for plugins I am happy to help.

Bump... @Idiot I'll be happy to do the documentation. But I don't know what methods I should be documenting...

@TheBrenny If you check out http://anchorcms.com/docs/function-reference/posts you will notice that there is some documentation. Also if you check out the php files in anchor/functions you will find the rest of the API which a large amount of might also need documenting :) Thanks for volunteering, writing docs is time consuming for a changing project :(

@TheBrenny @daviddarnes just a side question regarding comments, is markdown available for comments just yet or no? I couldn't find anything relating to the topic on the docs and it seems like a very viable feature to have.

@redrails I'm not sure, seems like a logical feature addition. Maybe add it to FeatHub?

Mobile view/iOS app (but probably not the latter)

IB Times reports that smartphone market is dominated by the Android OS. Probably best to get rid of the "iOS app" part. After all, it's going to be available for phones anyway. 😝

@Idiot Anchor CMS is the by far most awesome CMS out there I have ever used. But when you say that the computer has to do more work, does that mean you will be relying on more ugly javascript?
