It's been a busy couple of weeks converting all our apps to use the new parent page functionality. With the Vortex IDE it takes about an hour per app to convert. The task involves creating one base page layout with a placeholder for the childpage to be inserted. Next the tedious process of touching each page and setting a parent page then changing the markup to strip out everything except the small part that makes the page unique. For an hour of tedium we now have a set of apps than can be completely rebranded by just changing one page design element. I have updated the Tornado Server BlackBook with the new info and Parent Pages are definitely a best practice!
Martin (Mr Vortex IDE) Novak is back from his OZ Experience holiday tonight, and will be working through my list of IDE tweaks and bugfixes. The official beta is really close now :-)
I have been reviewing the puakma.net website(s) the last couple of days and I think we need some major simplification and rebranding. If there are any suggestions on what you would like to see (and be able to do) on the site, please let me know.
