    Advice: 2.4 alpha or 2.3.5 stable Link to this post

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first SS project and I'm am debating whether to use 2.3.5 or try 2.4 alpha. Just wanted to ask your opinion. The project is very basic from the CMS standpoint. However, there will be a few hundred subsites (franchises of a parent company) and the parent company would like to approve their content updates.

    I know I can use CMS Workflow and Subsites with 2.3.5, but the Roles feature in 2.4 sounds like it might make everything easier.

    Has anyone tried to use Roles in it's current state, along with Workflow and Subsites?

    Thanks!
    Wilson

    Welcome to the Forums Wilson,

    Since you're planning on using CMS workflow and Subsites you probably want to be running 2.4. I know the CMS workflow module (the latest version at least) requires 2.4 and a large update of subsites is in the wings I believe as well and that improvement / refactoring is likely to be 2.4 compatible only as well.

    Hi Willr

    Any idea when that "large update of subsites" is due? It seems that there are lots of people struggling with it at the moment (not least, me http://www.silverstripe.org/all-other-modules/show/284704#post284704%23post284704 )

    Cheers
