Discuss Grav 1.3 and Admin 1.5 releases


#1

The blog has been a bit quieter than normal lately, but that’s only because we’ve been busy working on a new Grav release that contains a plethora of goodies, a variety of user requested improvements, an assortment of bug fixes, as well as a smattering of important security enhancements…

Awseome! Congrats on the milestones :trophy:


#3

We got reports of a page ordering issue on Linux with the Intl PHP extension installed. If you run into this, an update is coming!


#4

Is there ever going to be an option/way to create new page templates via admin like you can in shopify?


#5

We feel that new page templates are really the realm of the developer, not the user. As the admin is really intended for end-users and not primarily intended for developers, its unlikely you’ll see a developer specific feature like this in the admin.


#6

I agree with @rhuk, one of the reasons why I enjoy Grav is the fact that there’s a good separation of concerns of content administration and development.

The last thing I would want to see would be a bloated administration layer similarly to Wordpress/Drupal.


#7

Can you update your documentation to explain better how to make non-admin users, editor roles, please.


#8

While I understand your POV, I don’t really agree with it. The admin should make things as easy as possible/save time. I don’t think it’s bloatware either. It’s pretty basic functionality. Is this something you would consider adding in the paid admin plugin version?


#9

Spell Checking in the Admin page editor. That would be really nice.Right now, I use Stackedit to write, then copy and paste into the page editor in Grav. That’s an addition to the workflow that I’d prefer to skip.


#10

I agree with this sentiment.

One of the attractions of Grav for me is the ability to develop and maintain a site in a clean and simple way, using tools of my own choice.

It’s great that there is a web based GUI for end users, but I don’t see the need to cater for developers in the same way.

For those of you that want a template builder you may consider combining Grav with something like http://grapesjs.com/demo.html
