Peers Conference 2016 Workshop: Modernize Your ExpressionEngine Install

Pascal Kriete Peers Conf Workshop

You’ve been wanting to upgrade to ExpressionEngine 3, but you’re faced with:

  • your own site, untouched in years
  • a client looking for a refresh
  • a site you’ve inherited from another developer
  • an ailing site you’ve been asked to fix
  • a site acquired by purchase or merger

Where do you start? What do you do with the PHP someone left in the templates? What about third-party abandonware, or the bespoke add-ons that no one remembers who wrote?

On Wednesday, April 13 in St. Petersburg, Florida, our

ExpressionEngine 2.10.2 Released

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.

Love,

Return of the ExpressionEngine Forums

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

ExpressionEngine Conference 2015 Keynote and Videos

We had a great time at the ExpressionEngine Conference in San Antonio last week. The conference did live-switch HD recording of the presentations and was able to have the videos available within hours. You can see all the other talks and a full-speaker Q&A panel on the ExpressionEngine Conference web site for just $99. This is a great value for those who couldn’t travel for the one-day event, especially our friends outside of North America. We are lobbying for an east coast location next

ExpressionEngine Conference, Special Edition: October 15

A few months ago, the great folks who run the ExpressionEngine Conference asked us if we would participate in a special one-day event focusing on ExpressionEngine 3.0. We were more than happy to, and with the venue they are providing along the River Walk in San Antonio, how could we say no?

Here are the talks our team has planned:

  • Keynote Address: It took foundational changes to both EllisLab and ExpressionEngine to get to version 3.0. I’ll share what this new release brings and where

Microsoft Kills What EllisLab Buried Eight Years Ago

When I heard of Microsoft’s supposed plans to rebrand their browser as Spartan in Windows 10, killing the tainted Explorer brand, I couldn’t help but dredge up this eulogy that Leslie Camacho and I made almost eight years ago. Also, wow, what a difference eight years makes in the quality of internet video. If you focus on the poor quality of the video, you hardly even notice how corny we are.
