ExpressionEngine 3.1.0 has been released and it’s full of great new features, performance improvements, and over 35 bug fixes. Here are the high notes:
- Template Partials and Template Variables can now be saved as files, just like your templates. Just check “Save Templates as Files” and you’re all set.
- As of 3.1.0 we now support PHP 7.0 and MySQL 5.7. Feel free to upgrade to the latest and greatest version of PHP and reap the rewards!
- Edit Categories on the Publish page to your heart’s
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
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

Ho ho ho! I got so many letters from you asking for a maintenance release of ExpressionEngine 2.10 and since you’ve been good little boys and girls I asked the fine folks at EllisLab to make your Christmas wish come true! I’m told this maintenance release fixes a number of bugs, changes the password maximum length to 72 characters, improves New Relic transaction reporting, and added a notification to the File fieldtype when its file does not exist. There is a full changelog available.
We wanted to get out one more release before the holidays, so here’s a small release with 16 bug fixes and 8 other additions. In particular, relationships had quite a few fixes logged and should behave itself after searching.
We have a few small additions this time around as well. As fans of Markdown we’re happy that comments can now use any formatter you have installed, including ExpressionEngine’s native Markdown formatter.
We’ve also changed how we’re reporting New Relic transactions.
ExpressionEngine 3.0.5 is now available for download. We fixed 24 bugs in this release with a continued focus on files. Using two file fields in one publish page should work as you’d expect. File fields with restricted directories now retain that restriction as expected while browsing and modifying the limit and view. The uninstallable File module is now installed.
Developers will be interested to know that the
cp_css_end hook has been fixed so it will be used and no longer cause PHP errors.
ExpressionEngine 3.0.4 is now available for download. You’ll find 30+ fixes this release, covering a wide swath of the code. File uploads now work for non-superadmins with proper permissions, the file picker now works when you have only a single upload directory, and we patched an intermittent issue with file synchronization. There were some important fixes to member management as well, especially if you have a large number of members. You can also approve pending members now, so it was
ExpressionEngine 3.0.3 is out! 3 releases in 3 weeks- I’m starting to worry we’re going to sprain a developer.
This time the forum received lots of love, with several critical bug fixes going in. Now all of those folks who wanted to play with the ‘free in three’ forum module can do so!
There were also tweaks to Grid, custom field defaults, site and email settings and more. For a full list of changes, just visit the changelog.
Development also continues on the 3.1.0 release, with a new
The ExpressionEngine Forums were once a bright point and central hub for the community. Known for being active, friendly, professional, and accessible to all. It’s no secret that they no longer have that reputation, and it’s our fault. When we changed our support model to scale and provide better support for our growing community, we (EllisLab) stopped participating in our own forums. The community followed our lead and abandoned the forums and fractured. Some set roots in Twitter, some in
