v2.2.1 is Born, but No One Knows its Name

July 25, 2013 Tags: release

Just like the new prince, the name for our latest 'child' is unknown, but that doesn't stop us from sharing it to the world!  Though we wanted to leave the 'old school' world of 0.9x as quickly as we can, we were perhaps a bit hasty and have thus relented.  Some of the biggest changes in v2.2.1 are the return of some 0.9x theme support, but now we display helpful messages on how to update your custom themes (when logged in as admin).  We've also integrated Facebook and increased our Twitter integration.  Furthermore as promised, we now provide paged forms (or wizards) in addition to some other form module tweaks, have vastly enhanced the 'Quick Add' upload feature, plus many other tweaks and fixes.

Twitter API v1 Blacked Out! (Fixed by v2.2.0 Patch 4)

June 12, 2013 Tags: bugs

We knew it would eventually occur, but the API to work with Twitter v1 has been blacked out in favor of v1.1.  You've probably already seen this warning message on your site, esp. if you have ever set up a Twitter module.  There is a forthcoming fix (v2.2.0patch4) due later this week which will attempt to fix this, but in the past had caused page breaks when Twitter was bogged down.  Here are some work-arounds in the mean time: (read more)

A Double Deuce to You!

This is a major, yet incremental update to Exponent.  This version contains ALL the fixes from previous versions, plus many more issues have been addressed.  PLUS, we've added too many new features and tweaks to possibly list here!  Since this version sheds all 'old school' or 1.x support, you may have to update your old custom themes or views (see this article).  We've also added support for Canonical URL SEO support (see this article).
