1.5.3 28 Mar 14

  • ExpressionEngine 2.8 compatibility.
  • As EE2.8 uses a new CP URL scheme this release is not compatible with earlier versions of EE.

1.5.2 27 Feb 14

  • ExpressionEngine 2.7.3 logout fix.

1.5.1 20 Aug 13

  • Fixed a bug where link tags could generate URLs that were incompatible with certain addons.
  • Fixed a bug where setting the jQuery UI theme to ‘none’ would lead to redundant Google CDN requests (404s).
  • Fixed a bug where the jQuery UI setting would always appear to be enabled.
  • Fixed a bug introduced in 1.5 where Missing Link CSS would load unnecessarily for logged in non-admin users.

1.5.0 15 Apr 13

  • Support for over 20 jQuery UI themes is now built in. You can select a custom theme in the Missing Link extension settings.

  • Switched from EE’s bundled jQuery libraries to newer Google CDN-hosted versions (jQuery 1.9.1, jQuery UI 1.10.2). You can still use your own assets if you prefer.

  • ExpressionEngine 2.6 compatibility updates.

  • Oh look it’s 2013: The body tag is now responsible for outputting <script>s.

1.4.1 20 Dec 12

  • ExpressionEngine 2.5.4 compatibility fix.
  • Added support for the url_third_themes hidden config variable.

1.4.0 17 May 12

  • New tag: The link tag lets you easily implement one-click edit links for entries, global variables, snippets and low variables (if installed).
  • New tag: The login tag simplifies the login workflow for frontend editing.
  • The inline tag has been deprecated and now goes by the name menu. References to {exp:missing_link:inline} will continue to work.
  • Switchboard users can now initiate searches from the frontend via Ctrl-S.
  • If CE Cache is installed the cache menu item will direct users to the CE Cache module homepage.
  • The instant_edit parameter has also been deprecated since we now have a dedicated link tag for that purpose. Again, existing templates will continue to work.
  • Created a workaround for a longstanding EE bug that broke some jQuery UI images (that Missing Link uses) on case-sensitive filesystems.
  • The settings page has been completely overhauled.
  • Reload prompts (‘action monitoring’) are now enabled by default.
  • Missing Link should now play nicely with sites who use jQuery in noConflict() mode.
  • Fixed a bug where the built-in jQuery UI CSS could not be disabled.
  • Fixed a bug where an installation error would appear if MySQL is in strict mode.
  • Fixed a bug where vertical scrollbars could appear in the ML menu if Switchboard is installed and the site uses a certain CSS reset.

  • EE 2.3 compatibility.

1.3.1 12 Aug 11

  • Moved Structure link to the Content Management menu section.
  • Plays nice with elastic scrolling in Safari (Lion).
  • Improved scroll blocking of the underlying page in Safari (Lion).
  • Fixed a bug which could cause the window overlay to be invisible when triggering the Missing Link menu multiple times per page load.

1.3 24 Jun 11

  • New: Action monitoring feature which will display a notification dialog and reload button within the lightbox or reload the window automatically after completing an action (e.g. updating an entry, clearing the cache).
  • New: Full multi-site manager support with site-specific settings and automatic site switching.
  • New links: Clear cached data, output & debugging, edit this template, Structure module homepage (if installed).
  • Significantly improved error handling, both for users and via template debugging.
  • Placing {exp:missing_link:head} outside of the <head> will no longer instantly break inline menus (though doing so is still not officially supported).

  • A minor EE 2.2 CSS tweak.
  • Updated the Manage Comments link so that it no longer points to a deprecated URL.
  • Increased usage of the session cache.

  • If the ML dialog is moved partially below the fold when the New Entry links slide down, it will now slide back up to the centre of the page.
  • Changed the logout link to EE’s frontend logout action, so users will be shown a clear confirmation message and then be redirected to the homepage.
  • Lightboxes are now borderless.
  • Added Fancybox 1.3.4 compatibility for sites that use their own copies of Fancybox.
  • Added NSM addon updater support.

1.2 24 Mar 11
