Bug Fixes / ChangeLog for Fast Warn

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


9th September 2015 -
Heaven knows why it wasn't spotted until now, but the "inactive message" that should have been written to the xml file when a warning is cleared/deleted, was not working. All fixed now though.

Changes made to the following files;

  • "fast_warn/fast_warn_admin.php"
  • "fast_warn/fast_warn_functions.php"

3rd February 2014 -
Two new features have been added; An optional setting for the use of the style attribute inside the warning message, 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_warn/fast_warn_admin.php"
  • "fast_warn/fast_warn_config.php"
  • "fast_warn/fast_warn_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_warn/tinymce/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/" folder has been updated.


26th July 2013 -
The release of "Fast Warn"; Basically it's a script that allows multiple, nominated site admins (the end-users defined with username and password in the config file) to quickly display an alert box or critical warning message to website visitors. Editable content is stored in a text file in a sub-directory which can be included in a web page and customised fully with CSS. It outputs a compliant RSS v2.0 xml file that can be used to push updates automatically to social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook. 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 Warn back-end demonstration to see how easy it is to use, OR, see the Fast Warn front-end demonstration for ideas on how it can be incorporated into your website.
