CMSimple 5 - new Split Mode

Up to and including CMSimple 4.x, the content file (content.htm or content.php) was split into individual pages of different menulevels using the headings h1-h3. Since configuration This could be expanded by configuration.

CMSimple 5 splits by h1 headings with special CSS classes, which are  used to define the menulevel of the page. Basically, 6 menulevels are possible, and all 6 headings h1-h6 can be used in the content of the pages, a major advance in terms of semantics and SEO.

Both split modes are possible

For reasons of downward compatibility, CMSimple 5 can also be operated in CMSimple 4 mode. Which split mode is used can be specified in the CMS configuration:

Settings => CMS => Use => H1only_pagesplitting:

... "true" activates the CMSimple 5 mode, everything else the CMSimple 4 mode.

This has the advantage that when updating from CMSimple 4 to CMSimple 5, the page can be operated as before, as there is no configuration file in the update packages.

When updating from older versions, when CMSimple 5 is installed first and then the old content is converted and integrated, it is advisable to change the configuration option H1only_pagesplitting: to change to empty, so that the new installation first runs in CMSimple 4 mode.

If everything works correctly, you still can switch to the new split mode. Simply set in the CMS Configuration the config option H1only_pagesplitting to "true" and follow the further instructions from CMSimple.
