This document contains information for an outdated version (2.3) and may not be maintained any more.

If some of your projects still use this version, consider upgrading as soon as possible.

2.3.2 (2009-06-18)


Feature Changes

CMS image alignment changes

Image alignment elements have been changed slightly. There are no longer any <DIV> elements created with the images using the insert image toolbar in the CMS.

All of these selectors in your typography.css are affected:

  • div.image.left
  • div.image.right
  • div.image.leftAlone

They need to be changed to the following (respectively):

  • img.left
  • img.right
  • img.leftAlone

Here's an example of how the default Blackcandy theme was changed:

Translatable Datamodel

The datamodel for the Translatable extension was changed from multiple language tables to multiple rows for each translated record in the original table. We've also introduced the concept of "Translation groups", which means not every translated record has to exist in a "master language". Please review our updated documentation on how to enable Translatable.

If you are upgrading an existing database with existing translations, you'll need to run our Migration Script before using the database.

For in-depth discussion of the schema changes and translation groups, please refer to our developer mailinglist: 1 and 2.

Translatable property selection

It is no longer possible to exclude certain properties on a DataObject from being translatable. This is a limitation by our database schema choice. See discussion on our mailinglist and ticket #3722.

Translatable URLs

Every page is now forced to have a unique URL, different languages can't be switched by appending a ?lang=xx property any longer. Languages don't have to be set in sessions or cookies, as every request is able to determine the language for the remaining site by inspecting the URL. Unique URLs are enforced because of SEO concerns, problematic caching on proxies, browser and framework-level, as well as difficult debugging with session states. See discussion on our mailinglist.

API Changes

Important, but simple, ModelAdmin change

The configuration statics for ModelAdmin have been changed from protected to public, so that Object::get_static() can access them. In particular the following static variables have been changed.

  • ModelAdmin::$managed_models
  • ModelAdmin::$collection_controller_class
  • ModelAdmin::$record_controller_class
  • ModelAdmin::$model_importers
  • ModelAdmin::$page_length

Because of this, you will need to change the static definitions in your ModelAdmin subclasses. For example, you should change this:

class MyCatalogAdmin extends ModelAdmin {
  protected static $managed_models = array(

To this:

class MyCatalogAdmin extends ModelAdmin {
  public static $managed_models = array(

Deprecated Translatable::enable()

  • Use ''Object::add_extension('SiteTree','Translatable'')'' instead of Translatable::enable()
  • Use ''Object::remove_extension('SiteTree','Translatable'')'' instead of Translatable::disable()
    • Use ''Object::has_extension('SiteTree','Translatable'')'' instead of Translatable::is_enabled()

Deprecated Translatable "lang" methods



  • ![rev:79278] Fixed TranslatableTest->testSavePageInCMS(), needed admin login to edit ViewersGroups field (Merged via: r79282)
  • ![rev:79269] Excluding Access fields on SiteTree from Translatable->updateCMSFields(), as their original values break the javascript logic for showing/hiding the fields (Merged via: r79282)
  • ![rev:79266] Passing locale through to TreeSelectorField ajax calls (Merged via: r79282)
  • ![rev:79240] Marking new TreeMultiSelectField_Readonly with $readonly flag, otherwise breaks CMS saving with Translable enabled etc. (see #4240)



  • ![rev:78919] DevelopmentAdmin: Changed dev/build to produce nicer formatting when running from sake/dev/build CLI
  • ![rev:78618] Add HTMLText#FirstSentence based on new HTMLText#Summary

API Change

  • ![rev:78632] Added increase_memory_limit_to() for increasing but not decreasing memory limit.
  • ![rev:78618] Added two arguments to HTMLText#Summary. Minimal impact since previously any usage of this function threw an error.


  • ![rev:79208] Don't remove translation groups in Translatable->onBeforeDelete() if the decorated record uses Versioned, as other representations of the record might still exist in other tables (e.g. SiteTree_Live) (see #4219) (Merged via: r79211)
  • ![rev:79194] Writing Locale in Translatable->onBeforeWrite() regardless of the record ID existing (see #4232). This is more in line with Translatable->requireDefaultRecords() which automatically updates all NULL locale values anyway. (Merged via: r79195)
  • ![rev:78920] DevelopmentAdmin: Don't allow dev/reset to be run from CLI, as this could be accidentally run - give a message that the user should run this from their web browser instead
  • ![rev:78732] #4119: Fixed encoding of readonly TextareaFields and unicode in TextareaFields.
  • ![rev:78729] Fixed Translatable->requireDefaultRecords() for non-SiteTree objects (was assuming Versioned to be present) (Merged via: r79195)
  • ![rev:78728] A couple of bugfixes on HTMLText#Summary and HTMLText#FirstSentence so the trickiest tests pass
  • ![rev:78618] Replace HTMLText#Summary with one that works.
  • ![rev:78542] Don't allow the use of get-var ?isDev=1 when security DB isn't available.
  • ![rev:78496] WidgetAreaEditor shouldn't ever call editable segment "NoWidgets" - this is just a placeholder
  • ![rev:78471] Fixed readonly version of TreeMultiselectField
  • ![rev:78470] Get backtrace rather than crazy context stuff shown in dev error messages
  • ![rev:78469] Fix readonly versions of grant fields.
  • ![rev:78452] fixed spelling of spam protector
  • ![rev:78352] modified convertDataObjectWithoutHeader to handle empty relationships.
  • ![rev:78256] Removing operating system limitations for Flash Player checks which determine showing/hiding of upload button (which currently requires exactly FP9 in our version of SWFUpload). See #3679 and #3023 for followup tickets.
  • ![rev:78155] Changing from unset record entry to an empty value shouldn't register as a 'level 2' change
  • ![rev:78118] Using language dropdown to determine locale for partial tree ajax loads, because we can't rely on a page with a hidden "Locale" field being loaded in the CMS. Fixed bug with wrong spelling of "locale" argument. (see #3995). (Merged via: r78119)
  • ![rev:76517] Closing <link type="alternate"> tags for XHTML compliance on Translatable->MetaTags(). Use ContentNegotiator to transform them back to HTML markup. See #3989 (Merged via: r78167)

API Change

  • ![rev:75913] Deprecated ModelAsController->get404Page() with using the URLSegment "404" on a normal page type - please use the ErrorPage class instead (Merged via: r75916)
  • ![rev:75742] Deprecated Translatable::get_langs_by_id() - use getTranslations()
  • ![rev:75328] Deprecated Translatable::get_homepage_urlsegment_by_language(), use get_homepage_urlsegment_by_locale() (Merged via: r75685)
  • ![rev:74969] Deprecated DataObjectSet->toDropDownMap() and made it an alias of map(), copying the functionality of toDropDownMap() into map()
  • ![rev:74901] add documentation to changeset r74858.
  • ![rev:74858] BulkLoader::getImportSpec() call DataObject::fieldLables() with $includerelations as false, so that the relations is separated from column fields
  • ![rev:74070] Deprecated Translatable::choose_site_lang(), use choose_site_locale() (Merged via: r74986)

  • ![rev:73466] Deprecated Translatable::set_default_lang(), Translatable::default_lang() (Merged via: r74986)
  • ![rev:73345] Removed CMSMain->switchlanguage() - createTranslation() is sufficient for new, ajax refreshing of CMS state got way too complicated for switching languages, we now just reload the entire CMS with a different ?lang GET parameter (Merged via: r74988)
  • ![rev:73338] Translatable->findOriginalIDs(), Translatable->setOriginalPage(), Translatable->getOriginalPage()
  • ![rev:70307] Removed CMSMain->switchlanguage() (Merged via: r74988)

  • ![rev:76019] Unblock blocked requirements when opening a poppup - otherwise
  • ![rev:75984] Removing ParentType and ParentID fields in Translatable->updateCMSFields() as they are causing js problems when set to readonly. These fields should only be set on the original record anyway (at least as long as we don't have a multi-language capable TreeMultiSelectField). (Merged via: r76035)
  • ![rev:75983] Removed URLSegment detection from Translatable->onBeforeWrite() - it was always preceeded by SiteTree->onBeforeWrite() which already alters the URL, so the appending of locale values to disambiguate the URL was pointless (never triggered) (Merged via: r76035)
  • ![rev:75936] Resetting default language in TranslatableTest - this was breaking VirtualPageTest before (Merged via: r75937)
  • ![rev:75926] Fixed undefined var error in VirtualPage (Merged via: r75937)

  • ![rev:75826] Removing the appended querying for NULL or empty Locale values in Translatable->augmentSQL() - this should no longer be necessary as we set default locales to all records through Translatable->requireDefaultRecords() (Merged via: r75838)
  • ![rev:75791] Fixed ErrorPage::get_filepath_for_errorcode() to work with locale values instead of short language subtags (Merged via: r75838)

  • ![rev:75785] set when ajax is disabled for commenting that we redirect manually down to the comment form
  • ![rev:75782] Unified locale values between i18n::$all_locales and $common_locales - the common locales should be a subset of all locales, without any additional ones as this might cause side-effects with LanguageDropdownField (see #3958) (Merged via: r75783)
  • ![rev:75745] Fixed DBLocaleTest (Merged via: r75746)
  • ![rev:75743] #3959: Fixed auto-setting has many relations on CTF - works mostly like the many-many relation auto setting.

  • ![rev:75156] Setting Classname and RecordClassname properties on internal $record map when constructing a DataObject without passing $record into it. This ensures that getChangedFields() works on ClassName as well, which is required for Translatable->onBeforeWrite() (Merged via: r75685)

  • ![rev:74017] Improved deprecated fallbacks in Translatable by auto-converting short language codes to long locales and vice versa through i18n::get_lang_from_locale()/i18n::get_locale_from_lang() (Merged via: r74986)
  • ![rev:73951] Translatable extension is no longer hooked up to SiteTree by default, which should improve performance and memory usage for sites not using Translatable.
