Caribou CMS 2.0.1

It's been a while since we last talked about Caribou CMS (news, site), a niche subscription membership Web CMS player. The news today is a minor point release of Caribou CMS version 2.0.1. (Oh, and check out the new logo!)

The vendor says "it is not urgent," but if you use Caribou CMS, you have probably experienced some issues with forms styles. The latest version fixes those styling bugs in the control panel (or site topic/ blog management) and the menu manager.

There is some manual work that needs to be done on your part: copy over /install/copy/templates/default/css/forms.css to /templates/default/css/forms.css if you are experiencing bugs in the administration panel form layout.

Other fixes include:

  • Login cookies containing a username and password are now stored for 30 days. Previously, only usernames was stored. Upon login, the cookie is extended for another 30 days.
  • Creating, editing and deleting site topics/blogs now updates the content database appropriately, fixing topic links in the menu manager and broken links on the frontend.

For your peace of mind, we do recommend you read upgrading instructions before doing any work. Caribou CMS version 2.0.1 is available for download here.
