Known Issues

  • Designs have been checked for overall compatibility with the newly-released Internet Explorer 8. Please report any issues.
  • We have identified an incompatibility with the Safari 4 Public Beta with regard to pasting embedded images in both this and earlier versions of Sandvox. We are hoping that Apple will resolve this before their final release of Safari 4; otherwise we will prepare a work-around in the near future. If you experience problems with pasted-in images disappearing after switching pages in Sandvox, we recommend you de-install the Safari 4 Beta for now, or else work around this issue by using drag and drop to embed your images in text pages and pagelets.
  • Due to a change that was implemented to resolve some ambiguities with how different designs handled content entered in the footer area, some third-party designs may require updates for full compatibility with Sandvox 1.6. We have notified all third-party design providers so that they can issue updates soon. Check SandvoxDesigns.com or the Discover Plug-ins window to keep up-to-date on any additional designs you have installed.
  • The slideshow feature of the Discover Plugins window is crashing for some users. We believe this to be an issue with Apple, so if you get a crash during a slideshow, be sure to report the crash to Apple (using the Mac OS X crash reporter, not the problem reporter that comes up next time you launch Sandvox) so that they are more aware of the issue.
Version 1.6 | Release Date: 2009-03-26 | Download

New Features

  • Added new fields in page detail view (the area in lower left corner of document window, now resizable) for setting window title and meta description of a page; these can be customized to improve listings in search engines. Text entry fields show a counter to keep track of length; they turn red when the length exceeds the limit that will cause Google to truncate (65 for the window title; 156 for the meta description).
  • Updated and simplified the publishing sheet as part of a major update to the publishing system.
  • Added “Discover Plug-ins” menu item to the Sandvox menu. Choosing this opens a window to find and download new plug-ins (mostly designs, but also page/pagelet types). Items can be purchased by clicking on the arrow buttons to view their web page; free plugins can be directly downloaded and installed. Plugins with newer versions available than what are currently installed are highlighted.
  • Publishing now automatically registers moderator email with JS-Kit, eliminating that fraughtful step required in version 1.5.4. You set the moderator email using Site Inspector.
  • Added hidden preferences to change JS-Kit behaviors:
    • JSKitReverseOrder, when set to YES, lists comments in reverse chronological order
    • JSKitDisableAvatars, when set to YES, hides avatars from comment postings
    • JSKitDisableThreading, when set to YES, disables threading of comments
  • The Disqus comment system is now available via the Site inspector. (Enter the “short name” of your site as registered with Disqus.)
  • The IntenseDebate comment system is now available via the Site inspector. (Enter the account ID (very long string of letters and numbers) corresponding to “idcomments_acct” in IntenseDebate’s “generic install” instructions for your site.)
  • Index pages now show “comment count” of entries automatically, with a link to the full entry, for all comment systems, rather than showing comments in-line. Comments are now seen only in the complete weblog entry page.
  • Added “Submit to Site Directory...” menu item to Site menu; this opens a web page where you can submit your published website to a directory of Sandvox-built sites.
  • Pages automatically generate the new “canonical” URL tag introduced by major search engine companies on Feb 12, 2009. Each page now inserts this to help search engines determine the main, preferred URL for a page. This will help search engines realize that variations of URLs (e.g. with or without “www.”, or with or without index.html) are actually the same page. This information comes right out of the host setup settings, so the Sandvox user doesn't need to do anything special to enable this feature.
  • The Option key will change the “Publish” toolbar item into “Publish All.” You can also add the “Publish All” item to the toolbar permanently via View → Customize Toolbar...
  • Renamed and re-ordered publishing menu items. New keyboard shortcuts, including returning command-E to its rightful owner in the Find menu. (“Export” is now command-shift-E.)
  • New collection preset, which just has a Raw HTML page as the index page type. This allows you to create an index page where the page type is Raw HTML, not Rich Text.
  • When a trial license has expired, the user is warned appropriately.
  • Invert position of code injection for the bottom of the document body, so that you can do something in the site-level code injection at the beginning, then something 'nested' for the specific page, and then do the un-nesting at the end body injection for the page, and then un-nest at the end body injection the site level. (Example uses: caching and buffering using PHP).
  • Installing plugins by opening plugin file from the Finder now moves, not copies, that file (unless the source of the file is not writable, such as a disk image).
  • The Contact Form no longer chooses destination address automatically: you must make an affirmative choice so you are fully aware of which email address will be used for receiving emails.
  • Renamed “View Published Site” menu item to “Visit Published Site”; added “Visit Published Page” menu item that visits the page currently selected in the site outline.
  • “Publishing Transcript” has been added to Help menu to help diagnose any publishing errors.
  • Publishing can now be effectively paused. If you hit Stop and then later re-publish, Sandvox will resume where it left off, truly publishing only the changed items.
  • A small progress indicator is now displayed on Sandvox dock icon during lengthy operations like publishing and page importing.
  • Amazon List is now also available as a Page type.
  • Added a hidden preference, FTPDataConnectionType, to allow the Active connection type to always be used.
  • Added a hidden preference, ExportShouldReplaceExistingFile, that reverts Export to 1.5 behavior (files are overwritten in place, rather than creating a new folder).
  • Change to how new RSS feeds are published: new feeds are now published as index.rss rather than index.xml. This maintains standards compliance but should increase compatibility with some hosting providers that would provide an RSS feed when a web page was requested!

Bug Fixes

  • Major improvements to media system and image scaling. Scaling now happens asynchronously and on-the-fly, with cached results. During publishing, scaled media is generated asynchronously, which improves repsonsiveness in the program.
  • Major improvements to publishing engine. It now delays connecting to server until it determines there is actual new content to be published. It no longer blocks during long uploads.
  • Many fixes to FTP publishing.
  • Fixes to publishing engine to handle relative paths properly.
  • Improvements to publishing engine for RSS feeds.
  • Implemented date localization for Archive pages and Archive Index pagelet. (Previous versions used system default rather than site language preference.)

  • Favicons are being properly generated again.
  • Fix to Host Setup Assistant to better handle relative paths.
  • Fix for issue where Sandvox would become confused about document metadata and refuse to open document.
  • Change to only allow creating a Link List pagelet by dragging a URL to the pagelet area; dragging a URL to the Site Outline now properly creates an External Link page.
  • Updated document window label to “Meta Tags/Keywords” to clarify the multiple purposes of these words.
  • Now appending month and year to meta information for archive pages so that they are unique, rather than copies of the parent page, so that Google will not flag them as duplicate content.
  • Adjusted the Contact Form so that the input fields are more consistent in their widths.
  • RSS feeds are properly limited in length once again to the number of entries on the index page, sorted by date (use Collection inspector to change number of entries)
  • Update to page-bottom (footer) HTML structure so that newly created, as well as older, Sandvox sites will display the footer properly. (Note that some designs will only display a single line of text in the footer; other designs allow the footer to expand into multiple lines.
  • Compatibility fixes to many designs.
  • Made the list-joining code be less aggressive in re-submitting failed signup requests. If a second attempt fails, it will not try again.
  • Fixed the problem reporter for resending saved problem reports that were stored in an older format.
  • “Browse...” in Setup Host now automatically begins at Document Root, if specified; it now works for iDisk.
  • Fix for improper escaping of some URLs in RSS feeds.
  • Improvements to document migrator (for Sandvox 1.2.* documents).
  • Fix to remove orphaned site menu items.
  • Fix to update page modification dates for RSS feed and Google Sitemap.
  • Plugins, including designs, are now sorted without regard to initial punctuation.
  • Maximum height restrictions on in-line images have been removed.
  • Change to raw HTML editor to be more permissive when pasting in certain CSS tags. Pasted HTML will be a bit more literal, but will remove some annoyances where pasted code was lost after editing.
  • Fix for issue where unwanted, invisible pagelets were sometimes created by Sandvox that would upset both previewing and publishing.
  • Fix for issue where publishing to a site with an unusual URL scheme would sometimes cause the Web View to appear empty.
  • Fix to action menu in Amazon List inspector.
  • Fix for issue where External Link pages were not respecting “open in new window” setting if included in a collection.
  • Re-ordered CSS output so that design-specific CSS comes after general, plug-in based CSS, allowing designers to override without specifying “!important”.
  • Updates to Sandvox Help.
  • Many other bug-fixes too numerous to mention!

Known Issues

  • Designs have been checked for overall compatibility with the newly-released Internet Explorer 8.
  • We have identified an incompatibility with the Safari 4 Public Beta with regard to pasting embedded images in both this and earlier versions of Sandvox. We are hoping that Apple will resolve this before their final release of Safari 4; otherwise we will prepare a work-around in the near future. If you experience problems with pasted-in images disappearing after switching pages in Sandvox, we recommend you de-install the Safari 4 Beta for now, or else work around this issue by using drag and drop to embed your images in text pages and pagelets.
  • Due to a change that was implemented to resolve some ambiguities with how different designs handled content entered in the footer area, some third-party designs may require updates for full compatibility with Sandvox 1.6. We have notified all third-party design providers so that they can issue updates soon. Check SandvoxDesigns.com or the Discover Plug-ins window to keep up-to-date on any additional designs you have installed.

Version 1.1 | Release Date: 2006-12-13 | Download
No changes specified
Version 1.0.4 | Release Date: 2006-08-04 | Download

New German localization, courtesy of Jens Hembach.
Document windows now restore their full positions, including origin, upon opening.
Selected images within a block of text are now highlighted more like Apple Mail; the yellow “halo” that Sandvox drew around selected images was often being inadvertently published. (The selection region with the new highlighting is a little odd in some cases; we are waiting for a fix from Apple for this to be made right.)
Fixes to problems with the green “+” editing markers: Adding a block of text now selects the placeholder text; removing a block of text now replaces the empty area with the editing marker.
Fixed issue with RSS feeds containing incorrect image paths for scaled images. Additionally, RSS feeds are now always sorted reverse chronological, regardless of the sorting of the collection it indexes.
Site outline contextual menus have been greatly improved: selection is altered, if necessary, to reflect exactly which page(s) will be affected by menu actions; the full range of actions are now available for all pages via the contextual menu, including the home page.
Added menus to toolbar items so the toolbar is useable in “Text Only” mode.
Improvements to image scaling quality. We now use the Epeg thumb-nailing library (introduced in 1.0.2 for speed improvements) for thumbnails only, not scaling of full-size images.
The Web View now loads images in the background, making the program more responsive.
Major improvements to marking pages that need to be uploaded for incremental publishing.
Photo pages now display a mini-thumbnail in the site outline.
iMedia browser: “Music” folder now appears in list.
Improvements to SFTP connections that improve public key validation and prevent crashing in edge cases.
We now restrict names of files and folders in a URL to be ASCII characters (Roman alphabet without diacritical marks) only since many ISPs forbid use of other characters.
Fixes and updates to many designs. You may want to publish your entire site to make sure these fixes appear on your website.
Several errors and crashers fixed.

Version 1.0.3 | Release Date: 2006-07-21 | Download

Fixes and updates to most page designs; as well as a new, internal mechanism for identifying pages in a document. We strongly recommend republishing your entire site to make sure all pages are fully updated.
New localizations:
繁體中文 (Traditional Chinese), courtesy of Jack M. H. Lin.
Dansk (Danish), courtesy of Mogens Thyregod.
日本語 (Japanese), courtesy of Daisuke Okada, Hiroto Sawane.
The “ripple” effect upon changing designs is now only performed on Macs that are fast enough.
Movie page and pagelet now allow you to specify the URL of an existing movie so it does not need to be uploaded with your site.
Fixed problem where truncation set for summaries would cause truncated text in the summary to be copied to the originating page.
Switched back to Apple’s host resolving technique instead of our own; it’s slower in some firewall configurations, but more reliable.
Took out the unpopular curved title effect on ‘This Modern Life’. (Contact support if you want it back and we will reveal a workaround you can use.)
Improved keyword field on document window to allow multiple lines of input. The keywords of every page are now added to Spotlight metadata.
Updated to a newer version of Apple’s WebKit framework, solving a multitude of crashers and odd behaviors.
Image scaling and caching performance should be considerably improved, particularly for JPEG images; we now use “Epeg” to scale all JPEGs.
Other bugs and crashers solved.
Improvements to iMedia browser:
Now uses “Epeg” for ultra-fast thumbnail generation.
Solved crasher with Movies tab.
Additional iPhoto metadata is now added to drag pasteboard.
Connection Framework:
Fixes for FTP quirks on several server types.
Now using libssh2 for SFTP to improve speed. Sandvox now validates your web host’s fingerprint when publishing. You may be asked to authorize the connection when first publishing with this new version of Sandvox. The alert panel will provide the required information for your review.
Added public key passphrase support.
Fixed a zombie that would sometimes lead to crashes during uploading.

Version 1.0.2 | Release Date: 2006-07-10 | Download
No changes specified
Version 1.1.1 | Release Date: 1970-01-01 | Download

Fixed recently introduced bug where certain changes would not cause the web view to refresh its content.
Several fixes to Connection framework for issues with exporting and FTP/SFTP/WebDAV upload.
The “Show ‘live’ data feeds” preference, when disabled, now also disables JavaScript. Raw HTML pages/pagelets with JavaScript elements that load external sites will also now not be loaded if this preference is off.
If the host setup assistant notices that your host always uses a specific character set encoding, you will be advised to update the site’s encoding to match.
Improved truncation. Summaries and RSS feeds now produce well-formed HTML, truncating based on text characters, not HTML characters.
Movie (audio/video/flash) pages now use an Apple-provided JavaScript solution to avoid requiring an extra mouse-click to view within recent versions of Internet Explorer.
Fixed issue where deleting a page within a collection sometimes threw an exception.
Fixed issue where undoing the deletion of multiple pages sometimes threw an exception.
Additional fixes to possible QuickTime crashes and Core Data access problems.
