I added two content type transformations to PHPortal today RTF (rich text format) from MSFT and OPML which is from scripting.com. In the RTF notice the properties menu.

NOTE: all content type transformations can use alternative templates as well as sending arrays or other strings besides the defaults.

Global Shared Tables for PHPortal sites, apps, and their relations.

1 => document 2 => method


1 => ('1','1') 2 => ('1','2') 3 => ('2','1') 4 => ('2','2')

XML NameSpaces in PHPortal Object Documents. The optional comments tag in return XPC-TAGS inside of Document Objects in PHPortal are going to be replaced with XML namespaces.
instead of the current comments
<!-- start document index //-->
<!-- finish document index //-->

Now it will be like so <xpc:data type="document" name='index'> content... </xpc:data>

The usefullness in this will be measured in many respects. In the short term, better content handling in regards to content transformations will be vastly improved. Such as this to text...

Minor and Major Bug Fixes, Minor and Major Enhancements:

+ Added RC4 Encryption and Decryption to Passwords and Control Panel encrypt / decrypt textarea using RC4 and Passphrases..
+ Broke apart sessions table into four tables (log, log_archives, sessions, and actions ('actions' not standard use as PHPortal Expression optionally)) sessions contain all active users per site.
Log includes a 24 hour period of detailed website statistical information. log_archives contain a log statistical synopsis per day per row. Actions contains all GET and POST requests as IP logs and can be used to detect hacking attempts against your website does not coem standard and auto-install like the other three due to hits high level of customizations that are required and is therefore optionally available via a PHPortal expression method..
+ Added a Site Backup option in the Control panel that can email, save local, or allow a download of your complete SQL and/or your server files, your HPortal dynamic generated site as static in a zipped filed structured directory, and import SQL data.
+ Added Cron Emulation and a management interface in the Control panel which is only accessible to 'owner' role and uses a shared table in one DB due to its minimal usage.
+ Streamlined XML- RPC allowing use of the new PHP XMLRPC builtin extensions as a automatic option or without.
+ Streamlined and fixed management security per object settings.
+ Added XPC-URI tag as a transitional one that will be usd to replace the current internal calls using XPC-EXP, XPC-MTH, XPC-APP, and XPC- INC.
+ Added a History table for Undo actions in the Management panel as a audit tool for each Object.
+ Fixed lots of minor bugs like the spanning pages of results and the tree view in the left nav.

PHPortal API details. Some particulars to note about the PHPortal API.

The code flow in a nutshell is as follow:

A PHPortal Object is based on a URI in a virtual file folder system. Each Object contains a 'type.' A Object Type is the Application hanlder run on-call to process the URI Object requested. The App Handler can return a string or array representation. The APP handlers's return is used by the format core library to present the end user's request in the content-type requested. The default content-type is html to request a different and available content-type to handler the same URI Object you would add that extension such as /index.xpc.text to gain a text view of the URI Object index.

Content-types process both strings and arrays of a URI Object. The String and or array sent to the specific content-type interpolates those values with a default or specified content-type template to present to the end user.
