 - Google Fonts - add Google fonts by their embed code, e.g.
 <link href=",700i|Roboto" rel="stylesheet">
 (adds 2 fonts - Lato and Roboto - Lato containing the "700 Italic" version)
 - Google Recaptcha - new element in the Elements pane ("Form" group)
- Element Group of Elements - choice of a custom wrapping tag: "a" (link containing all inner elements - careful to not insert other links inside!), "form" (HTML form to handle yourself), SEO-friendly tags (section, article, header, footer, nav, aside, main)

 - CSS property "box-sizing: border-box" available in Styles-Customize - if checked, the tag size includes padding (internal margins) and borders; no more need to write it into Free Code or code blocks.
 - ::before and ::after - free CSS code for both pseudo-elements available in Styles->Customize (just under Free Code)

 - Site Explorer (on the left - pages and folder of the project): Filter (search) field to show only folders and pages containing a text in their names
 - Same search field for Link configuration form (choice of target page or anchor)

 - Insert non-breakable spaces (&nbsp;) using Shift+Space when editing text (Single/Multiline Text elements and others)


 - In case of loss of certain interface windows (like Site Explorer), auto-repair on opening the project (note - you can do it manually as before using the topmost menu with small icons -> Restore defautl layout)

 - Property "Value" of Multiline Input Field element - fixed editor behavior
 - Fixed blocking (read-only) properties when Custom Classes are defined for style zones
 - Font management - fixed errors adding new fonts; now it is possible to add several fonts of the same family (Bold, Italic etc.) in different files
 - Fixed a random crash on closing layers and pages
 - Fixed freezing on inserting certain CSS codes into Styles->Customize->Free Code

 - OEGuideline: reports on missing images coming from additional downloadable elements are now shown as warnings and not as errors, and do not affect the page score

 - Performance improvement - certain operations up to 3 times faster


Fixed Google Recaptcha and .htaccess issues

Mhhh... why I see again 1.57 R4? Ok it's a beta, but why writing beta if it is told official version?

I haven't solved my problem and I'm looking for a complete explain about forms with oE. Is it possible find something about ?

Posted By: Dmit OE
Date Posted: Apr 10 2017 at 10:01am

Where is it written 1.57R4? What download link do you use? It's currently 1.57R8 (updated yesterday) for the DOWNLOAD link above.

You can read about forms in our Wiki; if you don't find what you need you are welcome to create a subject

I downloaded from the link you gave up. Unistalled old versione and cleaned all registry. Installed the one downloaded and after launched it sais 1.57.4 beta. I don't know if there is a new download, but to me it doesn't show like that. Also if you stay few seconds ob the link you posted it shows oE 1.57 R4 beta... After reading your answer I'm downloading the 1.57 R8 and will try to install that one ...

Forms: I have seen the wiki, but to me it looks not enough in explaining the all about. So, for example preparing a form with only oE I haven't understood the use of those CSS panels (CSS CLASS) and I surely made a lot of confusion between them and the code I use... Example: I made the label NAME and the section where the user must insert his name... but where do I have to write the code?
Thinking about those CSS CLASS panel I tried to put itthe code there, but doesn't work. Now I'm trying to see if I can but before I go to install the latest version so I have all updated.

Clean all again, downloaded new version 1.57 R8 and now I see a speeder oE. I also checked the version of PHP we have on the netand it is the 5.5.19 just to know it to set oE with that... but I don't have the necessary knowledge of how to use php, 'cause I come from the use of java, and as now many things are changed, I feel difficult update my brain... but I try Evil Smile

You don't need to do anything with PHP configuration in OE, and if you don't use it you don't need to think of it.

But the server of the ips I'm using needs a (php) file to get the form and send it to a specific internal address on the server, so how can I do, if I don't see where to include the exact path?

I have 2 buttons: Cancel and Send. Cancel is working by itself, but if I don't set a path in the Send button, where wil go the form sended? Other thing: the server gives a generic code to be used for the form to be treated ... I don't know where to put it... also 'cause I make confusion with that CSS class panel...
<FORM action= method=post>" rel="nofollow - I link the pdf-page of the article talking about that code so you can see what I mean (also if it's written in other language). And to make more heavy the thing, is that I don't yet have the username and password to try the code online... so I have to do all on my computer.

1) You should use Send Form (not Send Mail) element.

2) In its configuration, configure the target URL (one of the first fields int the configuration wondiw) and put this link there:

P.S. You should put it in the bottom address field, choose "HTTP"on the left and do not include "http://" into what you paste

I did so: used a Group of elements, input all datas (label Name, etc) and added also relative input text fields; added there a Submit Form and loaded all informations as read" rel="nofollow - here.
I know there is difference between Email-form and Submit-form, (and I can't build a user database 'cause I have limited access to their server... everytime I have to move phisically to their place and do everything from there). After added the address as told, how can I make recognizie it for the site? I mean: the path is generic, but how can it send it to the internal email of the site? I set only one address, but the other ( how can be reached? As you have seen I am planning to send all datas to her internal email address (the one already on the server and ready to work), so she can download it normally using her client on computer. This is what makes me confused...

 (After added)
The new 1.57 R8 is working well. I hope it is stable.
I found something I think should be changed from cancel to disable and it is in Properties --> behaviour --> Cancel Resizing (example: a multi-line text input field).

Please start a new topic, upload somewhere all screenshots necessary to understand how you did the form and its sending so far and give links to them

Im currently using version 1.53 R6 what do I need to do to upgrade to the newer version?
and will my website be saved, once I upgrade?

Posted By: Bravo12

Only download the new version and install it. The first time you will launch it you'll be asked to back up your existent sites. Say Yes and wait. In end it will open the page of the first project site you saved.
It will ask it again for other sites that/if you already have on your compuetr.

When you open a project with a newer version for the first time, OE asks whether you want an automatic backup, you just need to confirm and a ZIP file will be created.

Posted By: Bravo12
Date Posted: Jun 25 2017 at 12:04pm
Exactly as Dmit said and it's better to say Yes to the backup . It wiol save the old version of the project just in case something goes wrong...
When you're sure the new version is working well then you can delete the old project.

Thanks you all your help on the upgrade it worked great.

Next question
Is there a way to create a template without sharing a template?

Been trying to figured this out for awhile I have the template made but want to use it for more than one site and have not figured it out yet without starting over everytime.

I don't know if the team has again a copy of old versions, but surely you have to ask to them. Anyway: how can you use a version with possible bugs inside?I use the 1.57. R9 (beta) and is working fine, but I wouldn't use an older version...

I have installed openElement 1.57 R9, but when I want to open it, it gives the following message: openElement 1.57 R9 \openElement.exe is not a valid Win32 application. I had been using before 1.53 R6 and still have some projects on my computer. Thanks for all.

I would proceed in this way:

1) Clean registry (you can use a Ccleaner free; a better way is" rel="nofollow - JRT )
2) check if there is an old folder in my Program files or in some other hidden place and delete it before installing new version
3) check my computer with antivirus, but possibly with a software that can start the check from boot (I use Avast free).

After all these chances I would reboot the pc and try again to download the new version, 'cause program could be damaged during download. So, after downloaded, click on the setup file with right button mouse go to Property (last voice) and check if file is locked; if it is then you have to unlock it, and try to install it again.

When happened to me with other programs I always found something wrong with registry or bad path of older applications that installed older system files...

I don't think is oE fault...

The bad is that with a simple post they are expanding the fraud to all of us! I'm here 'cause I was thinking to give answer...

I think could be a good idea to add a button to show when a post is fraud or similar...(it may be in Post Options)

Does this newer version fix not being able to edit titles on a link when you post it on Facebook?

Posted By: digizar
Date Posted: Jul 06 2018 at 1:28am
How do you think, could OE change the link in FB?
FB does not allow -as far as I remember- to change a link once it is set.
Probably a question on FB?

I don't use FB and similar "socials" 'cause are not so "social"... I can say that oE has a different coding than FB and probably for that you can't change anythibg in FB with the use of oE...oE encrypts all the site with a code and FB with another one, different from the first. I think you should use the non graphical way to do that change (with keyboard and iside the code) but I don't know how to act. I will have same experience soon 'cause we have to shut down a consumer's site, and opening it in a free place...but I already found how to do (in my case). I don't know if oE is compatible with FB, and if it is, then you could publish it directly...

No, once it's installed, you can switch language from french to english or english to french.  You have to restart the app right after the change." rel="nofollow">
