Default GAL 5.0 Alpha 3 preview

Just a note to say that GAL 5.0 Alpha 2 is now up and running on the site here. I have spent all freaking day on it and there is more to do. Regardless - its pretty much operational although there are a few bugs:

1- WIll only work in forum directory
2- Editing a post doesnt refresh the postid cache
3- Dont think QR works right yet.
4- The Glossary seems to show all dictionaries in the system in the breadcrumb.

Note that you can check out the glossary over here www.thevbgeek.com/glossary.php

Please note that all entries by users need to be moderator approved. I doubt Ill approve most as I dont want every other word auto linked on the site as people try it out, however you can still give it a go. Obvious entries I will leave around.

Please dont post bugs or anything in the tracker yet.... this is only a pre-beta preview. Feel free to post any observations in this thread.

Thanks

Is there going to be a glossary setting so you can select All Categories rather than each one seperatly?

There is a filter setting for that, however I was debating dumping it as its a little user unfriendly right now.

Im having to put this off until tomorrow. I have it about ready, however I have to write a < 5.0 converter to import existing GAL installations (there are all new tables and fields). Then I just need to run a couple more test runs.

As a pre warning to everyone thinking this is a current replacement for the 4.x series:
1- It doesnt track impressions yet
2- It doesnt show stats yet
3- Your existing styles will not be ported (5.0 uses templates instead of GAL 4.x 'styles' system)
4- I havent figured out how to cache non post data. In other words, if you go and add 10000 entries, GAL 5.0 will run 10x better than 4x will... however on pages like private messages, vba homepages, and anywhere else you use GAL outside of posts... 5.0 will pretty much act like 4x and pull ALL of your entires to try and make a match. Im looking at a way to select which categories will get pulled on a non post page, but it might not make it to Beta 1.

Also, I think I should warn everyone that I will be away on business for about 10 days. During that time my net availiblity could be scatty. Therefore I would really warn against using it on live sites.

Saying that... Im using it here and on www.salongeek.com (www.salongeek.com/glossary.php) pretty safely (however you should always do as I say, not as I do )
