In-App Add-On Documentation Tip

Hey developers, thought I’d pass along a sweet GitHub feature I just discovered. No doubt you are already taking advantage of ExpressionEngine 3’s in-app documentation feature for your add-ons. And you probably are also using GitHub or Bitbucket to maintain your source code. Both of these fantastic sites render README.md files on the home page of your repository.

If you use the following package structure, then your build/distribution path is clean for end users, and your in-app documentation

ExpressionEngine 2.10.3 Released

Near the end of December we gave our user guide a new home and we’ve been happy with it. Except there was one little glitch, all the v2 installs were still directing people to the old location! We’ve repaired that with 2.10.3. We also took the time to patch a few bugs (see our changelog).

ExpressionEngine 3.1.2 Released

Full speed ahead, ExpressionEngine 3.1.2 is out the door! This is the second patch release for 3.1, and contains a couple dozen bug fixes. Some of the issues squashed:

  • Fixed a bug where relationship parsing could result in conditional errors.
  • Accessing some files should no longer wrongly accuse you of attempting to access files outside of a directory.
  • PHP 5.3 didn’t like something the Pages module was doing and complained loudly.
  • Deleting a field group didn’t delete its fields. Weak

ExpressionEngine 3.1.1 Released

Only two days after 3.1.0 was released, we’re releasing 3.1.1. We found a few bugs that we couldn’t let stand and squashed them as fast as possible. It’s releases like this that make us really thankful for 3.0’s much-improved updater.

In particular, there were a few PHP errors thrown when creating template groups when saving templates as files, when sometimes submitting a contact form, and when some add-ons would save particular models. With these bugs, you can expect our test coverage to

Coming Soon in ExpressionEngine 3.1.0

We’ve been working with third-party developers in our Developer Preview Program for the upcoming version 3.1.0, and we wanted to share some details with you ahead of its release. Our main goal for 3.1.0 is to add hooks that replace some old ones from v2. Third parties need these hooks for some of the great add-ons you’ve been waiting for v3 compatibility. So when we release 3.1.0, you can expect to see many of your favorite add-ons released around the same time.

But we didn’t want third

New Home for the User Guide

The ExpressionEngine user guide is now at a new home. There you can find documentation for all major versions of ExpressionEngine, including legacy and retired versions.

If you target the specific versions in your links, they will remain good regardless of future releases. So your links to https://docs.expressionengine.com/v3/ currently redirect to latest/, but will continue to point to v3 docs even after we release 4.0 (which would itself become latest/).

The move returns the focus on
