Beginning at approximately 12:30 a.m. Eastern time Saturday, May 11, we will be performing some scheduled site maintenance and may experience momentary downtime. We expect to be working for a few hours, though do not anticipate being offline for the whole process. As always, we will keep our online documentation available in the event that the main site is offline. You can of course download ExpressionEngine’s documentation for offline use at any time using the links at the top right of any page of the user guide.
ExpressionEngine 2.6.1 is now available for download. It is a stability release that fixes a few bugs and makes a couple of noteworthy changes.
ExpressionEngine 2.6.0 is now available for download, and as of this release it requires at least PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0.3 or newer. We are also releasing Discussion Forums 3.1.11 and MSM 2.1.5.
It’s funny how relatively small things can make a big difference in what you can accomplish. The ability to relate Channel Entries to each other seems like a small thing, but it can be very powerful. For ExpressionEngine 2.6, we returned to the Relationships fieldtype to increase that power exponentially.
Save a click and boost security? Sure thing!
ExpressionEngine 2.6 is coming soon, and choosing whether or not you are observing Daylight Saving Time in ExpressionEngine will be a thing of the past. With the new PHP version requirements for ExpressionEngine, we were able to take advantage of more modern date handling techniques to eliminate the DST setting all together. All you will have to do is choose your timezone and we’ll take care of the rest.
ExpressionEngine 2.6 is just around the corner. This release is packed with new, exciting features as well as a few small changes. One of those changes is ExpressionEngine’s default setting for Strict URLs.
We just wanted to remind all site developers building and maintaining sites with ExpressionEngine that Twitter API v1 is being retired beginning March 5th, 2013. You can read more about the specifics on the Twitter Developers Blog.
While at first blush it may sound odd to bring this up on the EllisLab Blog…
We have published a new trademark use policy that covers all aspects of using EllisLab trademarks in your endeavors, whether for commercial or non-commercial use. For simplicity, these guidelines are identical across the board for ExpressionEngine, CodeIgniter, MojoMotor, and all other text and logo marks owned and used by EllisLab.
Now instead of spending time investigating and answering each request individually, we are able to provide our community with a clear and open picture of the acceptable use of EllisLab’s trademarks. We hope you find the published guidelines to be liberal, simple to understand, and easy to follow.
Are you an agency or freelancer in the Southern California area? There’s one week left to register for Train-ee’s Beginner to Intermediate training class in Pasadena, California (March 5th - 7th).
Train-ee is bringing its time-tested instructor-led live-in-the-flesh classroom training to Southern California. Come out to experience the mild spring weather and rub elbows with fellow developers while learning ExpressionEngine. Bring your projects and get some help and direction!
Train-ee has a tremendous track record teaching ExpressionEngine in-person, including EllisLab certified courses. That combined with the opportunity to brainstorm with fellow students from other agencies and schools of thought is priceless. If you’re in the area (or want to be for a few days), you should definitely sign up and attend.
