Default ActiveKB 2004 Bug+Feature List

Hi guys,
I thought I'd post the official ActiveKB 2004 bug and feature list. We've started development however we *DO NOT* have a timeframe yet, so please do not ask. When we know, we'll let you know:

Bugs

1. Rework the way the glossary works and make sure it doesn’t “glossarize” words in tags, etc

2. Backslashes are stripped out in WISYWG editor

3. PHP: You shouldn't have to enter a MySQL password when installing/setup

4. PHP: Check if magic_quotes_gpc is set and work according to that

5. ASP: Ability to choose which mail library is used. For example, CDONTS, JMail, ASPMail, etc

6. ASP/ASP.NET: Add the option to use a full database path, instead of the full virtual one

7. Make sure all database tables and fields are lower case

Features

1. 2004 look and feel

2. Language pack both front end and back end

3. Mozilla support

4. Easily changeable skins for front-end

5. Multiple administrators, each with customizable permissions

6. Ability to manually choose related articles when creating a new article. If not chosen, use default SQL query to get related articles

7. Ability to add a question/comment that the user submits as a new article from the control panel

8. Search engine friendly URL’s

9. Ability to add keywords and descriptions that would appear in the meta tags for each article

10. Ability to choose keyword based search or full text search from admin/front end

11. Move the stylesheet from the index.php file to its own .CSS file

12. Add the ability to password protect certain categories

13. Actually have a glossary on the front end like SitePoint now has for glossary words

14. Add an image manager to the WYSIWYG editor

15. Ability to enter a "weight" field for question. Just a number and they will be sorted by weight before anything else to display more relevant questions at the top

16. Ability to attach up to 5 files to each article

17. Add "advanced search" to search by category, date created, etc

18. Add another field to the required contact fields with the subject

19. Ability to notify admin via email when a comment is posted

20. Ability to add a description to a category and have it display

21. RSS feeds

22. Version with DevEdit integrated

Thumbs down

mytch,

I ment "some information"? You can also interprete as "more information". A lot of users is waiting for info about the new version, which we never receive in this forum.

Is ActiveKB important for your company, or aren't you interested anymore?

Hi Patrick,
What more information do you need? I have posted the feature list for all to see, however we're still in the process of developing ActiveKB 2004 and its our top priority right now, along with ArticleLive PHP -- both are being worked on simultaneously.

We do not post release dates anymore because they're hard to keep, especially since we have such strict testing procedures, but we will be posting information about a beta version when it's ready.

All I can say is that from the feature list of AKB2004, it will be a winner. I've used AKB 1.5 on two websites with great results. I've virtually eliminated most of the help emails I normally get.

Anyways if you have AKB 1.5 you can see right away how these new improvements will dramatically help your Knowledge-Base.

I am as impatient as the rest of you but I've learned to let Interspire take their time on product development because the end result is always so "kick ass" it's unbelievable.
