The local inclusion vulnerability fixed is old and affects many previous versions of CMSMS. Therefore it is important for ALL installations to be upgraded as soon as possible.

This release also fixes all of the issues encountered with the CMSMS 1.8 release due to the overhaul of the translation function. Your performance in the admin section should be back to normal following this upgrade.

Announcing Geek Moot 2010

Posted June 21, 2010 by Ted Kulp

It's that time again. The developers of CMS Made Simple have finalized plans for our yearly user conference. This year, we're thinking much bigger, so join us. On 16-17 September, CMS Made Simple will host the second public Geek Moot event at Casa 400 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. There will be plenty of presentations by the devs and other members of the community, events, networking and just general geeking out. There are plans for evening events in the works and they will be announced soon. Come spend time with the CMSMS devs and other people just like you for a few days of fun with the system you love. For more details on the event, see Presentations We are looking for people to do talks and presentations on CMSMS related and web development topics. If you'd like to do a presentation (and promote yourself as a CMSMS know-it-all or your company), please contact us here. Proposals are due by 15th August. Workshops We are also looking for people who want to host a workshop on the 15th of September. Workshops will be an extra fee and even after covering the cost of the room, should easily pay for the trip for a half of day's worth of work. We'd like to get this setup as quickly as possible, so if you would like to host a workshop, please contact us so we can see if it will work and book a time slot. Once these are setup, we will announce them to the community and beyond. Sponsors In addition, we are looking for potential sponsors. We've created several sponsorship packages, but of course, if you have other ideas for sponsorship, let us know. Sponsorship details are found here. We would love to get several sponsors if possible. Donation Drive We will also do our yearly donation drive in a month or so. The money for this will go to paying for several devs to travel to the conference, as they normally wouldn't be able to. We'll announce that when we're prepared to handle the influx of funds -- and figure out who needs them. Early Bird Discount Register by 26 July and receive a €25 discount! We'll have some other deals as well as we get details. Stay tuned! Thanks! We hope to see you in September!

Announcing CMS Made Simple 1.7.1 - Escade

Posted May 1, 2010 by Robert Campbell

Woot! CMSMS keeps getting better and better. Even though it's only a point release, this version of CMSMS fixes numerous minor bugs and adds some important features. We didn't feel that the list of changes were extensive enough to call it 1.8 even though we attempted to attack as many issues that would have the biggest bang for the least bucks as possible. That meant we tackled changes that were probably easy to implement, had smaller impacts on existing sites but would make things alot easier for our user base. We think that the changes will be important enough for you want to upgrade quickly. One of the biggest things this version adds is better support for SSL. There is now an (optional) ssl_url parameter in the config.php and a check box in each edit content page to turn on HTTPS support on an individual page basis. This was a long time coming. We tweaked the module API so that any form element created by a module (form tag, text input, checkbox etc) has classes associated with the tag. This will make it much easier for designers to style forms. We have also added preferences to control the default image manager thumbnail size instead of having to edit a config file. There are new user preferences to aide in pagination for GCB, stylesheet, and template lists. As well, the core modules have had minor tweaks and bug fixes to generally solve a few problems and make life just a little bit simpler. TinyMCE has been upgraded to the latest version again (hopefully we'll avoid the normal pain with upgrading and TinyMCE this time). There has been a schema change this version to accommodate the SSL changes so no diff releases will be generated. You will need to go through the upgrade process on each site. Again, we would like to thank the people that contributed to this release with countless hours of testing, bug reporting, translation and support. In particular: Ronny Krijt (ronnyk) Nuno Costa (nuno) Rene Helminsen (reneh) Jeremy Bass (JeremyBass) Tyler Boespflug (tyman00) Mark Reed (DrCss) Enjoy, and happy CMSMS'ing!
