An initial beta version of the Forms plugin has been released at www.glfusion.org.  This plugin is based conceptually on the robust nexForm plugin for Geeklog by Nextide.  This is a simplified version, noticeably missing many of the layout functions of the Nextide version, and is intended to be a simple and straightforward method of creating custom forms and storing use responses.

This is the first public beta release, use at your own risk.  This plugin has performed well in limited testing on a public site, but your mileage may vary.

PayPal plugin version 0.4.1 for glFusion released


It seems that some users of the PayPal plugin version 0.4.0 are having trouble adding new products to the database. This issue cannot be duplicated in development or testing environments, so there's no firm fix yet. However, version 0.4.1 of the plugin includes a global "debug" option which will cause a variety of messages to be logged to the site's error.log file where they can be viewed with the log viewer. Hopefully this will help troubleshoot the issue. Version 0.4.1 is available now for download at www.glfusion.org.
