MetaTemplate Pro 1.5c released
MetaTemplate Pro v1.5c, released on July 28, 2010.
This is a significant new release. The VirtueMart controls only show up when VM is installed - but then they give you a whole lot of wonderful control over what pages will get a new template.
The "default" menu item setting in the Succeed and Fail actions was suggested on this forum and is a great idea. It could be very useful in conjunction with the use of different templates for subdomains.
sh404SEF handling is much improved, but you still have to make sure that the sh404SEF plugin appears before the MetaTemplate plugin, or it still won't work.
People have been asking for iPad/iPod/iPhone support, so I went even further and added Android, OmniWeb, and a bunch of search bots. Now you can provide a different template for the bots if you should ever need to do so!
The MaxMind GeoIP database downloads now work a LOT better. In particular it should now be possible to download the GeoLiteCity database which almost never worked before. I just wish the City accuracy was better than it is, as this is a real limiting factor in the usefulness of GeoLiteCity.
Last but not least, a lot of work has gone into JomGenius support. You'll probably only need this if you ever need to write PHP rules, but if you do, you'll appreciate it. It massively simplifies the PHP required for lots of different scenarios - many things become a 1-line operation. One function you might like is called "inTimeSpan" which makes it extra easy to specify time periods in your PHP rules. See http://www.metamodpro.com/jomgenius/parameters for details.
And as always, feedback is appreciated. Most of the changes in this release are as a result of your feedback!
