Updated Patches released for v2.1.4 and v2.2.3

June 1, 2016 Tags: patch, release, bugs

Though they are both extremely old versions, they were the release before a major version change and are/may still be in use. Please bear in mind we strongly recommend your installations be updated to a much newer version which contains many more fixes and new features. Having said that, these patches (v2.1.4patch8 and v2.2.3patch11) fix a security vulnerability with the database manager and pixidou editor. And in v2.2.3 we correct some very annoying debug output (warnings) that practically makes the site unusable when error reporting is turned on. (read more)

Patch #4 Released for V2.3.7

February 16, 2016 Tags: patch, release, bugs

This patch fixes several issues in the v2.3.7 release and v2.3.7 patch #1, patch#2, and patch#3.  It also provides several tweaks and even some new features, though the main focus is providing several regression fixes.  It should be noted that the new optional 'Upgrade permissions' upgrade scripts will attempt to lock down the site by fixing file and folder permissions (except for cgi-bin) which means also turning off the 'execute' permission.   It must be noted that this patch (like the previous patches to v2.3.7) will break any custom text module view templates using in-place editing.  Unlike previous patches, this patch file also includes all the 'installation' files in the event you secured your site by deleting or renaming the /install folder.

It must be noted that this patch will (again) break any custom text module view templates using in-place editing.

Patch #2 Released for V2.3.7

January 9, 2016 Tags: patch, release, bugs

This patch fixes several issues in the v2.3.7 release and the v2.3.7 patch #1 and provides several tweaks and even some new features. The main fix is for a regression problem in v2.3.7 which prevented editing or copying existing calendar events. It must be noted that this patch will break any custom text module view templates using in-place editing.  While you will not lose any data, the results of saving the first in-place change will break the javascript on the page...therefore you must remove any such custom templates, or create a new one based on the system ones included in this patch.  Patch #2 to v2.3.7 is found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/exponentcms/files/exponent-2.3.7-patch-2.zip/download (read more)
