Dlayer – Release 0.64

New release up at Dlayer.com

This release is a small one in terms of new features, just one, it was however quite complicated behind the scenes. To date all the sub tool operate on content items, I needed to update the base logic to allow tools to be run on structure items, like content rows.

A background colour can now be defined for a content row in much the same way that it can for a content item.

For the next release I am going to see if I can fix the selector bug, now that background colours can be defined it is becoming more of a nuisance.

Dlayer – Release 0.63

This release finishes off two features that I added recently, move content rows and re-order content items.

Content items can now be reordered within a content row using visual tools in the designer in addition to being moved from one content row to another using the move item tool. Content rows can be now be moved within content areas using the visual tools in the designer or moved from one content area to another using the move row tool.

The move row and move item tools present the user with a select menu allowing them to choose the destination, the designer will highlight to show the selected destination, be it a content row or content area.

Dlayer – Release 0.62

I have added the ability to define the offset for all content items, this gives you the ability to control the horizontal position of an item within a row or in relation to sibling content items.

I’ve also added the import jumbotron tool, this matches the heading and text version, it allows you to create a new content item using existing data.

Check the development log for the full change log.

Dlayer – Release 0.61

New release up at Dlayer.com

This release adds two new tools to the Content manager, import heading and import text, they allow you to create a new content item using existing data, that is data from an earlier content item, I also fixed a bug with the Jumbotron tool, an error was being thrown on edit.

Next on the list is allowing you to define offsetting for content items, it makes sense to put this in place before I write the code to calculate the size of new content items based on the size of sibling content items.

As always check the development log on Dlayer.com but in this case it won’t have any more than I have detailed above.

Dlayer – Release 0.60

New release up at Dlayer.com

I’ve added the styling and size and position tabs to the Jumbotron content item tool and you can now re-order content items within a content row.

The ability to move content items from one row to another will be added later, around the same time I add the ability to move a content row from one area to another.

The current plan is that the import text and import heading tools will return in v0.61.
