I have completed the Comment Moderation feature, which has been requested by a number of users. Currently, I'm integrating it with the rest of the administration system. When it's complete, I will try and post it as a seperate update to the main FactoSystem release.
The new version of FactoSystem is now available for download. If you are upgrading, simply extract the new files (with the exception of the database,) modify the config.asp file and upload them to your server. For more info, see the readme.txt file in the zip.
Currently working on a script to automatically upgarde .9 databases to version 1.0 beta. In the future, all new releases will have a feature to upgrade the database. As such, new release is going to take a little longer. Look for an update in about two weeks.
We are actually closer to 1500 total download. I have had 300 off of FactoVision and the current total is over 1100.
Just checked the stats and saw that we have almost reached 1000 downloads of the current beta. Not bad. New beta is coming soon, and I am looking for volunteers to test is. Please drop me a line if you interested.
FactoSystem 1.1 Beta will be the easiest to use release of FactoSystem yet. Currently, I'm revamping the administration system, adding instructions, some new security features (by request.) Expect further news in a week or so. Until then, please feel free to get in touch via the discussion boards (here at SourceForge.)
Facto is now available again. Download it today!
Sorry folks. The updated beta was corrupted in transit. I am taking it offline for the remainder of the day. I should have it back up before midnight tonight. (11/15)
I updated the beta to address two problems. One was with the readme.txt file, which referred to the wrong default Administrator password. The other was changing the database so the Administrator had security privileges to use the Administration system.
The readme say default password is Administrator. That's incorrect. The default password is admin.
Beta 1.0 is now available! This version is the easiest to set up and use so far. I hope you enjoy using it.
I've included directions for setup (readme.txt) in the zip. It's very straightforward and shouldn't take you more than a few minues.
I've tested this version and it works on Win95, 98, IIS 4.0 and IIS 5.0. The database is MS Access 2000. If you don't have 2000, I can give a copy of the database in Access 97 format.... read more
I am seeing a lot of downloads of the system, and I assume that people are starting to use it. Just remember facto is only free for non-commercial use. Please contact Ken Rona if you wish to use it commerically.
If you are interested in seeing facto in action, please try one of the following urls:
The next version of Facto is almost ready to be released. We need beta testers to make sure the system works in a variety of environments. If you would like to volunteer, please drop me a line.
The current source is now located in CVS. It certainly was challenging to get it in there.
The facto source is available for download here. Stay tuned for the alpha source code, coming soon...
