After almost two months since RC2 release the next (and hopefully last) release candidate is now available! Among dozen of bugfixes there have been two areas worked on intensely: The Central Participants database (many issues were fixed here and new features added) and the new RemoteControl2 API (based on JSON-RPC/XML-RPC). Please note that the coding of the RemoteControl API was exclusively sponsored by your donation money! Let us know if you think something is missing. We invite everyone to have a look at LimeSurvey 2.0 and ask you to report any issues back to us as soon as possible. Only that way it can quickly become stable for a full release.
Update: We are at RC7 now because we have been reported two show-stopper bugs. Thank you for the feedback!
The upcoming 2012 US edition of the ExpressionEngine Conference in October will be the first event utilizing a newly published set of presenter’s guidelines to help make it an invaluable learning experience for attendees while being inclusive and family friendly. Here is a brief sample:
- Tell a story.
- Share success and failure (empathy & vulnerability reveal authenticity).
- Dream big. Invite people into a larger story. What we do is never about the tools, but the amazing things people can accomplish with them that make the world better.
- Make sure you get all ExpressionEngine, CodeIgniter, and MojoMotor technical info vetted by EllisLab.
You can read the full EllisLab Presentation Guidelines for Events as well as how to implement them for your own ExpressionEngine community event at the EllisLab blog.
Carl Crawley, one of the esteemed speakers presenting on the development track at EECI, recently chatted with me about his upcoming talk.
Carl has been a programmer in one language or another since 1998, starting with front end (when tables and iframes were the “in-thing”!) - he then moved to back end and worked his way through various programming languages as a freelance IT consultant covering Classic ASP, VB.Net, Ruby on Rails, PHP, Cold Fusion and CodeIgniter where he finally rested upon the CodeIgniter/ExpressionEngine combo at the end of 2006.
Can you tell us something about yourself and your work?
I’m Managing Director, Chief Coffee Maker of an ExpressionEngine Tech House based on the Isle of Wight, a small Island off the south coast of mainland UK. Made by Hippo (or just “Hippo”) was officially incorporated in 2010 after freelancing in my evenings and weekends was getting more exciting and fulfilling than my full-time job. I took the plunge and started an agency full-time. We specifically set out to do technology. So, we focus entirely on ExpressionEngine and CodeIgniter development. And we have partnerships with agencies and studios all around the world providing them with their technology requirements.
Hippo lives and breathes ExpressionEngine and CodeIgniter. Every part of my job involves either building sites (or parts of sites) in ExpressionEngine or writing add-ons in CodeIgniter/PHP.
In my home life, I’m married, father of two daughters (8 and 3) and a son (1). I am a 2nd Dan Black Belt in Taiho Jutsu and Tsung Tzu Chi, however, work and life balance has dictated that I no longer actively compete or train.
What are you most looking forward to at EECI?
I’m looking forward to meeting the awesome community that surrounds the whole ExpressionEngine platform. We all know each other so well and communicate regularly over Twitter that it does feel like a family to some extent. EECI being in Texas is also going to be fantastic and will be my second ever trip to the US (the first being for EECI Brooklyn last year!). This year’s line up has some absolutely awesome speakers and I’m looking forward to listening in on some of the great talks particularly from Matt Weinberg, Low and Chris Imrie.
For me, working and being based in the UK, it also gives me a unique opportunity to meet with clients and colleagues that I work with on a regular basis, but never get the opportunity to physically be in the same room.
What inspired you to speak on Bootstrapping ExpressionEngine?
In a way it was born out of both frustration and the desire of all business owners - to make money. We’ve such a diverse range of agencies and studios all around the world that we work with, from one-man-back-room operations to large multi-national design/marketing agencies. Particularly when working on projects in isolation (which we rarely do, but quite enjoy for some of the smaller agency work) or when commissioned to write an add-on/extension for a project. The concept that “set-up” takes half a day or sometimes longer seems ludicrous. We are all in this business to ultimately earn a profit, so I created myself a bootstrap installation that allows me to essentially deploy a functioning ExpressionEngine site (albeit vanilla) in a couple of minutes.
I originally spoke on this subject at EEUK in Manchester last year and the reception I received was overwhelming, so when Robert asked me to speak at EECI, it seemed sensible to continue that subject and go into a bit more detail. Also, the bootstrap has changed a lot since that original talk!
What are you hoping that someone viewing your presentation will walk away with?
I’m not offering any silver bullets. My bootstrap solution is merely one of the ways that you can create a reusable shell for your ExpressionEngine installs. What I want the attendees to walk away with is the inspiration and desire to want to think outside of the box. ExpressionEngine is truly a chimera of CMS platforms which is why we love it so much - however, there are the same routines we all go through every time we set up a site. So why not do it once and have it set up as an installable bootstrap script?
Will you share a small teaser from your talk with us?
Imagine a situation where you can deploy a working ExpressionEngine site in under 2 minutes? I’m offering the attendees the pointers and ability to create themselves a reusable, bootstrapped installation of ExpressionEngine that means a site can be deployed in under 2 minutes… Bottom line, I’m offering the attendees the insight into making themselves more profitable.
You can attend Carl’s talk at EECI in October.
Great news! EECI Room Rates have gone down!
Space is limited, so reserve now to ensure a spot for your team. See you there!
Today Website Baker Org e.V. has released the new official homepage of WebsiteBaker content management system. From now on you can find all information about the cms refreshed and new structured on www.websitebaker.org.
MODX puts you in complete control of your website, right down to the last pixel. Case in point, when we launched MODX in 2004 you could have created an HTML5/CSS3 website—just like you can build an HTML7/CSS5 website today despite those standards not existing yet—just by putting any HTML into MODX templates.
MODX doesn’t force you into using complex theming systems, but it does offer developer the freedom to use a template engine like Twig if they so choose. The point is though, you don't have to be a developer in order to build an amazing website in MODX.
Designers and marketers can create completely custom, remarkable websites in MODX without ever having to learn how to code. If they need something truly custom, they can collaborate with developers without colliding. In the same way, they can turn over a site to a client without worrying about them breaking their hard work.
We have always believed that the software that runs your website shouldn’t dictate its structure or force you to compromise your design to fit its mandatory theme layer. On the other hand, it should adapt to your explicit needs, today or tomorrow, and it should never force you to work with code in order to create a truly custom design.
No matter how cutting edge the creative vision for your website, if you can create a prototype mockup (or just want to download a template from a theme site), you can power it in MODX. This frees you to focus on building and communicating, not the software running your website.
Unlike so many other systems today, MODX fits your creative vision for the design, structure and content of your site, exactly as you envision and without compromise, not the other way around.
At MODX, we believe the tools and process of communicating on the web should be liberating, unencumbered by geeky assertions of how the web should work. We use “Creative Freedom” as our tagline, and over the coming days I want to share what creative freedom really means to us, and how it relates to everything we do.
Nearly a decade ago, I began looking for a web content management system (CMS). In my search, I quickly became frustrated with complex theme systems, arbitrarily fixed content blocks, or being forced to use tables for markup when Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and Web Standards were the future of the web.
As an experiment, I refactored osCommerce to output pages using lightweight, semantic markup styled just with CSS, forgoing the use of tables, sliced images and inline styles. This resulted in a ~30% speed boost, and I was sold. Faster sites meant better conversions, happier customers, and outperforming competing sites in search engine ranking, all things being equal.
Speed and SEO aside, I also needed a CMS I could hand over to non-technical clients without worrying about things breaking. If they were capable of filling out a form, they should be able to manage and publish content on the web.
Eventually, I gave up searching for a system that was as mythical as a bacon-taco-fetching pet unicorn. So, along with a few other like-minded individuals, we built one that gave us the creative freedom that was missing from the CMS landscape, and we happily shared it with the world.
We had no aspirations of becoming one of the leading open source CMS platforms used by hundreds of thousands of websites, but that’s where we find ourselves today. It took dozens of releases over 7+ years, but we’re happy about where we are now, and eager to share what’s in store.
Now, we’re on a mission to find new ways to give creative freedom to the people that work on the web.
Modernised admin and front-side themes, significant changes to the markup and multi-edit system to remove some old tables and bad practices, AJAX saves on the ‘Write’ panel, a pub/sub hub for client events, more powerful sort options for list tags, security fixes… it’s all going on in Textpattern 4.5.0!

Description : Add Many tags for forum tags like (center,right,left,youtube,size,mp3,...)
After extract this extension in ZIP , upload omedonlie_tags folder to your extensions folder forum,
After this install in Administration .
Note:To show icon tags this extension you must install pun_bbcode .
Download pun_bbcode in this link below:
I've very recently put up a PunBB 1.4 forum and, for simplicity's sake, I'm using SQLite3 as the database back end. (I'm running on a fairly limited VPS and trying to be as minimalist as possible.) I've noticed over the last 24 hours that I'm occasionally getting messages like this in the web server error logs:
FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP message: PHP Warning: SQLite3::query(): Unable to prepare statement: 5, database is locked in /opt/nginx/sites/gc/include/dblayer/sqlite3.php on line 96" while reading response header from upstream
I know that SQLite3 locks the entire database when it's writing, but I'm wondering if this a sign of an actual problem I need to investigate, or if it's something that I can safely ignore -- is the query being retried so from the forum visitor's point of view everything is fine, or is data potentially being lost here? If I need to switch to a different database engine, I should think about it now, so I can follow up this message with "what's the best way to migrate between database engines."
After several extensive internal and external security audits which discovered 22 distinct vulnerabilities, we are releasing Gallery 3.0.4 as a security release. All of the issues require that someone with malicious intent either have an account with edit permissions, or trick a user with edit permissions into clicking on a malicious link. In most cases, this can only lead to a possible XSS vulnerability, but in several instances it allows arbitrary PHP code execution.
We thank the following individuals for reporting these issues: Chalk, Mateusz Goik, James 'albino' Kettle, Emanuel Bronshtein, and Sergey Markov. Due to their efforts, they will each be receiving bounties of $1000 for their help in making Gallery more secure. Read our Bounties page for details and how to submit any security issues you find.
We strongly recommend that all users of Gallery 3 upgrade as soon as possible.
A team of developers has released a new version of their native iPhone/iPad app for Gallery 3.
viGallery allows you to manage your photos and albums straight from your iOS device.
It isn't open source and it does cost $4, but it looks like a nice way to work with Gallery 3 from your Apple devices. Read on for features and requirements.
We're releasing both Gallery 3.0.3 and Gallery 2.3.2 as security releases. Several researchers, working independently, discovered possible encryption-related vulnerabilities. Low-risk XSS vulnerabilities limited to the administration area were also reported. We thank the following individuals for reporting these issues: James 'albino' Kettle, George Argyros & Aggelos Kiayias, and Emanuel Bronshtein. They will be receiving bounties for these issues. Read our Bounties page for details and how to submit any security issues you find. The CVE id for these issues is CVE-2012-1113.
We recommend that all users of Gallery 2 and Gallery 3 upgrade as soon as possible.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University are using Gallery to learn more about how people use access-control permissions in online photograph sharing systems.
If you would like to contribute, please take their survey http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/666856/Gallery-Usage which should take less than 5 minutes to complete.
