Wow, sorry to cause such a stir..dont get me wrong, I have fallen in love with silverstripe..
I used to build my own, I have a perl background, and frankly I like the open source ideas, I like to contribute and love getting help with mine or others contributions, open source is never going to stop, and I hope to do my share..
I guess I assumed that since the demo was working, it worked..so I will look into a older version..
I tried joomla before, and now tried it again, and it is just not for me..now I am looking into something called codeigniter, yet somehow I can not download it, have to get it from a friend..thats how my luck goes these days..
As for the .com thing, I guess it just caught me off guard, as I am new to silverstripe, I also just assumed that I had made another bad choice and now it was over..I did not take the time to look around, so I am sorry for those comments, no bad feelings were intended, I suppose I was just sad and needed to vent..I am just really stressed out, just finished up on building a big site, uoffer.com (its a free site if anyone is interested in using it, feel free), and it was solid stress, and now it is a tool that is just sitting around collecting dust..oh well..I still love my job!
I'll keep up with the updates, and will try an older version, I tried the latest two versions, one was a beta 2.2.3 and 2.3 i think..I went looking just now for an older version, seems like they are in the daily builds section?
Can anyone tell me how to get a version of silverstripe that works for the image editor part?
I had not really thought of using a third party image editor, now I am thinking maybe that is the options, I should be able to get one into the silverstripe admin then its wether or not I find a good one..
The worst part is that I already wrote most of this stuff in perl, I just want to crop and resize photos etc, I have so many clients that just cant seem to get it when it comes to photo editing, the silverstripe image editor looked so perfect..
I regret learning perl, but it was still a learning experience, php is great, but I have all my bad perl habits with me..hope to help out here, keep up the great work! I promise not to assume things anymore..
