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

Q: What do you get when you cross the Flowplayer module, the YouTube module, and HTML5 compatibility?  A: the new Media Player module!  We recently added a new module to the v2.2.0 pre-release code line called the Media Player module.  It is designed to display Audio (mp3) and Video (mp4, webm, ogv, flv, or f4v) files, and YouTube links in an HTML5 compliant manner (Flash player is not always required).  This is done by using the MediaElement.js library instead of Flowplayer and also using HTML5 audio/video tags.

exponentcms.org Sites Back Up!

February 27, 2013

The suite of exponentcms.org sites (www.exponentcms.org, docs.exponentcms.org, forums.exponentcms.org, api.exponentcms.org & testing1.exponentcms.org) have been migrated to a new server and are back up and running!  Access to those sites had been slow and intermittent (at best) for the past several months.  We apologize for the delay in solving this problem.
