Hey is the new version compatible with the database from the old version? In other words will everything transport over. Also what if we changed the css file?

Hi Doug. Yes but only comments and pages are kept. You'll need to re-apply your CSS changes to the new stylesheet.

So no luck throwing the JavaScript code in a separate file to clean up the html source?

As of right now, the code to text ratio is not SEO friendly.

Hi Ken, I had a serious look at this during development. As you can tell, there is a separate file called /frontend/view/default/javascript/common.js which has the bulk of the JavaScript. The remaining JavaScript that you see in the source code has to be there because it's constructed by dynamic PHP variables. Naturally this page will have a low code-to-text ratio because this page isn't about content so it doesn't have any. If it had content you'll probably find the percentage is well within the recommended guidelines.

Hi Rodney, we're probably looking at November, if not December at the latest. I'm currently writing the upgrade script which is the only big task remaining. Make sure you're using the current version, v2.5, to be able to upgrade to v3.

Just made an important change so that search engines (with JavaScript disabled) are still able to navigate through the pages and index them like normal. You can test this by disabling JavaScript in your browser.

Efforts in the past trying to incorporate Commentics into a Bootstrap framework failed for me. Hopefully v3 will be compatible.

Hi George, what issues did you experience when integrating with Bootstrap?
