ExpressionEngine 3.0.4 Released

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 Released

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

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 3.0.2 Released

Hot on the heels of 3.0.1 we bring you 3.0.2! We fixed a over 20 bugs1. Notably, we had some relationship tag issues, and after some couple’s counseling and a few trust falls things are much better; adding a site in the Site Manager works flawlessly; categories cannot be their own parents; our custom field settings pages had a case of amnesia we are happy to report has cleared up, and it now remembers everything you tell it. We’ve also updated our docs here and there, removing a few embarrasing

Backing Up ExpressionEngine

We’ve all been there: a client or customer calls to say something has disappeared, you delete one file too many, or a hard drive has simply crashed. You either felt devastated, or you were able to swoop in and save the day because you have a backup plan.

Everyone should have a backup plan for not only their personal computers, but also their websites. Websites can lose data due to hacking, server crashes, or human error. Plan for the worst and be able to get back online in a jiffy without

Software License Changes

With the release of ExpressionEngine 3, we’ve made some changes to the software license that we’d like to point out. Legal stuff is boring but necessary, so here’s the tl;dr:

  • We’ve added a human-friendly explanation to the legaleze.
  • The license is clear on its application to MSM.
  • Core is permitted for personal/hobby sites, and may not be used for client work.

Free Version

The free version is designed to introduce ExpressionEngine to new users without any investment, and to be used as a

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
