Update Notes for Version 2.1.1

Comment Module

Moved Comment Management to the Comment Module Control Panel

With the addition of a Control Panel for the Comments Module, all comment management was moved to the Comment CP. In order to moderate comments, a member group must now have access to the Comment Module (set in Member Groups - Create/Edit).

Added Admin Notification of Comments Variables

The following variables were made available to the Admin Notification of Comments Specialty Template:

  • {entry_id}
  • {url_title}
  • {channel_id}
  • {comment_url_title_auto_path}
  • {close_link}
  • {approve_link}

Added User Comment Notification Variables

The following variables were made available to the Admin Notification of Comments Specialty Template:

  • {channel_id}
  • {comment_url_title_auto_path}

Added a new Email Notification Template: User Comments Added Notification

This template is used to send a single notifications to entry subscribers when multiple comments for that entry are opened at the same time during comment moderation.

Developers

Alterations made to the delete_comment_additional hook

Added a new parameter $comment_ids and moved the hook above the delete query.

Removed the comment_form_action hook

This hook has been removed from mod.comment.php.

Field Type code deprecation warning

We have noticed in a number of third party Field Types that developers are accessing the field_id via $this->settings[‘field_id’]. This is incorrect and is not a supported property of that array. We have included a hack for this point release to allow these Field Types to continue working, however this hack will be removed in ExpressionEngine 2.1.2.

Please update your code to use $this->field_id as documented as soon as possible so that sites using your Field Types do not break in future releases.
