Bug Fixes / ChangeLog for Fast Logs

Please follow the progress of Fast Logs below. Fixes and updates will be added and logged here for convenience.


20th July 2017 -
The download pack has been updated to incorporate the latest version of TinyMCE v3.5.12. The entire "fast_logs/tinymce/" folder has therefore been upgraded.


5th January 2017 -
A security fix has been added to disallow new files from being created, or existing ones from being deleted, via manual query strings in the WYSIWYG edit window.

The following files have changed;

  • "fast_logs/fast_logs_admin.php"
  • "fast_logs/fast_logs_functions.php"

19th February 2016 -
A small fix has been made to carry the page session over on entry save in the admin panel. And somewhere down the line, the "fast_logs/_entries" folder had been renamed to "fast_logs/_entry", so that has now been corrected.

The following files have changed;

  • "index.php"
  • "fast_logs/fast_logs_admin.php"

3rd February 2014 -
Two new features have been added; An optional setting for the use of the style attribute inside log entries, and a custom function to strip only the HTML tags that you define.

This could be useful if, for example, the end-user is copying and pasting content from another source and accidentally introduces 3rd party inline-styling that conflicts with the look of your design.

The following files have been updated;

  • "fast_logs/fast_logs_admin.php"
  • "fast_logs/fast_logs_config.php"
  • "fast_logs/fast_logs_functions.php"

15th January 2014 -
The download pack has been updated with the latest version of TinyMCE v3.5.10, which fixes a few compatibility issues in IE11.

Only the "fast_logs/tinymce/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/" folder has been updated.


16th August 2013 -
An optional excerpt feature has been added to the admin panel, which reduces the length of visible entries in the Log Entry Manager.

Changes have been made to the following files;

  • "fast_logs/fast_logs_config.php"
  • "fast_logs/fast_logs_functions.php"
  • "fast_logs/fast_logs_admin.php"
  • "fast_logs/index.php"

19th July 2013 -
The release of "Fast Logs"; Basically it's a script that allows a nominated site admin (the end-user defined with username and password in the config file) to manage and edit log entries and/or updates. Can also be used on a larger scale, for example, to display chapters of a book or manual (a page per chapter). Editable content is stored in text files in a sub-directory. It outputs a custom HTML content file that can be formatted in any number of ways before it is included in a web page. Auto-pagination (page numbering) and archiving included. A WYSIWYG toolbar plugin (TinyMCE v3.5.8) has been incorporated to make things nice and easy for non-technical users, and the rest of the interface is just point-and-click.

Check out the Fast Logs back-end demonstration to see how easy it is to use, OR, see the Fast Logs front-end demonstration for ideas on how it can be incorporated into your website.
