Noosfero, version 0.44.0

Hello there everybody!

I'm here to introduce you to our new version called Bororos! This version includes lots of cool new features for both users and developers.

Special thanks for the guys on Serpro that contributed a lot on this version. Also thanks to Josef Spillner for the update on the German translation. Thank you!

Now enough of the talking, let's go to what matters!

Manage and moderate comments

This new feature allow the users to choose if the comments on each of their contents should go on freely or should be moderated by him.

Moderate comments configuration

In case he chooses to moderate the comments, each comment created on that content will generate a task with the comment and its content and he'll be able to approve it or reject it.

ApproveComment task

Comments through ajax

Now all the comment process is realized through ajax requests. So there no longer any need of reloading the page to realize any operation related with comments: creation, removal, edition; anything! This improves the user experience and also reduces the server load.


Now on Noosfero we have this new kind of plugin hotspot called Macro. On any content the user will be able to include Macros that will be converted on the render time at the server side. This allows the users to build contents with dynamic informations.

The Macros' infrastructure allows the Macro to include a new button on the TinyMce editor that will allow the user to configure the Macro attributes and insert the Macro on the content without the need to understand the Macro format (although the user might add it through pure html if he wants to!).

Macros button

There isn't much documentation neither for the users or for the developers (besides the code itself) yet, but we'll be working on it in the future.

Comment Group Plugin

Together with the new Macros' infrastructure, we have a brand new plugin called Comment Group. This plugin includes the first real Macro on Noosfero. Its Macro is called Allow Comment which allows the user to mark any piece of its content as "commentable".

Marking commentable text part

When that content is loaded, the parts marked will display a small blue balloon on its left side indicating the number of comments that part has.

Comments Group balloon

Clicking on this balloon show the comments already made on that part and also show a comment form for the user to comment too. This feature improves the power of the contents discussion allowing people to discuss each piece of it independently.

Comments Pagination

Yet talking about comments, we now have also comments pagination! No more scrolling forever to see all comments on those popular contents. For now the pagination is only based on the root comments and also requires a page load but the plans for the future is to have "See more" links that will load through ajax some more comments.

Coments pagination

Template without sidebars

We also included on this version a new template called "No Sidebars". As the name reveals, this template has no side bars at all. It's specially for those folks who goes straight to the point! =D

Trusted sites configuration interface

The administration panel received a brand new option that is the "Trusted sites" configuration. Despite this is an old feature on Noosfero, the wasn't, until now, an interface for the environment admin to configure it. Now it's much easier to choose which are the sites that your environment trust in order to load those cool but dangerous iframes.

German translation

As I said earlier, in this version we have a brand new German translation. Special thanks to Josef Spillner for his contribution.

Blog/Forum view posts limit

Due to some performance issues we limited the blog/forum view limit of posts per page. The options that were 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 are now 5, 10 and 15.

Small features

  • Package support for installation without database configuration.
  • TinyMce on contact view
  • Environment Access-Control-Allow-Origin configuration
  • Admin is no longer asked for captchas
  • Proper redirections after content removal
  • Parametrization of after_login redirection

That's all for this version. See you on the next one! o/
