Unify

Unify just launched, it seems pretty easy to use and it is cheap.(It does not work on a domein and a subdomain, you have to buy another license for it).

What do you all think about it? Time for a Unify action or not?

I’ll let you know if they ever let me download my purchase! :slight_smile:
Freeway integration looks quite easy even without an action but as
soon as I’ve had a chance to install and play I’ll report back. It
certainly looks cool and fits most budgets.
Regards,
Tim.

Mmm. I’m waiting too.

Could the first person who gets to the point of actually downloading
their copy please let others know? I suspect that the automated part
of the purchase process has failed and we’re going to have to wait
for this to be dealt with by hand.

One bit of trouble I can see from this – the Unify system alters the
HTML files on your server, rather than capturing the changes in a
separate store. So if you were to upload a new version of a page to
the server after your client changed it, those client changes would be
wiped out.

This is the same problem as you would have with any sort of source
file edits and Freeway. Either you go back through your Freeway
document and double-check that your content is up-to-date before
publishing design changes, or you treat the Freeway design process as
a once-and-done step in the life of that site and never publish from
Freeway again.

Dang. I should have looked and thought a little harder! Maybe with
the use of includes.

(Interesting comment on the site about using includes within a
Unity element: “Please Note: Unify Elements cannot contain an
include. This will rip a hole in the fabric of space-time.”)

Yes, indeed Walter that is a big problem. Good shot.
Exit Unify for Freeway users, no action needed.

Their download button only takes you back to the register page…too bad. Now we have to wait for them to complete the registration process from purchase.

You should be able to hit the log-in button on their site and download
Unity from there. However, when I tried it it came back with an error
against my domain. After I mailed support they sent me a temporary
password for the download which worked and allowed me to get the files
downloaded.
It is a pity they rushed this out without testing the purchase process
thoroughly but then things like this are easy to miss.
Contact their support and they should send you a temp password.

Tim.

I’ve just had a reply from support that said “We had a bit of a
hiccup this morning with Unify account creation and it looks like
your purchase was one of those affected”. My guess is that this
affected everyone - hey-ho! :slight_smile:

Just received Unity and uploading. Initial look at the contents of folder is very interesting. They are using Jquery and TinyMCE to get editing functionality.

Too bad they didn’t send a typist along with it.

For the curious:

Unify is a bit like MiniCMS in as much as it does not limit editing of content. What that means is any editable areas can have any kind of content that TinyMCE will allow since that is the main editor engine.

Implementing Unify in Freeway is very simple. Once it’s installed on your server, you simply set up the 3 (there only 3) classes that Unify recognizes in the syles editor and that only requires the class names be put in the name field, nothing more than that. Once the styles are created it’s simply a matter of applying them to divs.

One possible gotcha - your web host must have Register Globals turned off for Unify to work.
