I’ve spent the past week getting a patch ready for 1.6 as well as making many behind the scenes changes to improve the overall code. I’ve migrated much of my code to work with Joomla! 1.6 and also created a patch that you can apply easily. You can get the patch from here, http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/frediting/frs/.
com_content is still in the works and so I’ve not migrated the code for article editing to 1.6 yet. However, you’ll be able to edit module and menu-item titles, drag & drop modules, edit module params in a modal popup and edit page titles in J!1.6 after you’ve applied the patch. Also, you won’t need to apply any hack.
You can also download the latest release of the Joomla! 1.5 extension from here, http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/frediting/frs/. The changes won’t really be visible to you as most of them make the extension more secure and efficient. Here are the changes in the new release:
An impairment of this extension is that since it is written using mootools 1.2.3, if you're using mootools 1.1 based scripts on your website, they are susceptible to not work when you're logged in and have editing permissions ( even though I'm using a compatibility script to add support for 1.1 )
If you’ve a previous version of the extension installed, you’ll need to revert the hack, uninstall the previous version and then install this one. Reverting the hack is necessary as I have renamed the module chrome.
See you on the other side!
