Forum Down [Updated]

Posted January 9, 2008 by Ted Kulp

EDIT: The forum is back up. See below. Hey folks. The forum is down for awhile until I sort out some problems. Seems that all the posts from before December 11 were removed. I'm in the process to trying to recover what I can from backups, but it's going to take some time for me to get it all sorted out. I figured it was best to take down the forums so we lose as little data as possible as I try to do a recovery. I'll post when it's fixed. EDIT: It's back up. The last backup I have is from Dec 7th at 13.30 GMT. I restored it and tried to merge in the data afterwards with no success. Sorry, but this is best I can do. I have no idea what happened, but I'll be looking at the logs to see if I can figure out something. Unfortunately, I just don't have the time to play detective, so I'll do what I can to lock down stuff so it can't happen again. As a side note, my new backup hardware came in this afternoon. :) So at least next time I'll only lose a day instead of 2.

This is just a maintenance release to fix a couple of problems that we're annoying people at random. If you're not having any problems, you might not even need to upgrade. Though, it never hurts, especially if you use the diff version. Enjoy!

It's that time again. This is a maintenance release with no security fixes, so use your judgement for upgrading (just backup, please!). Thanks go out to RonnyK, hExDj, reneh, and fransman for testing this one!
 Version 1.2.1 "Bridgetown" ----------------- - New versions of News, Search, Tiny, and FileManager modules - see the documentation for each module to learn what has changed - some of these modules may have been released seperately at an earlier date - Fixes the issue with pages being set inactive on edit if not edited by somebody with the 'Modify Site Structure' permission - Adds the cms_move_uploaded_file function that all modules should use from now on to assist in handling file uploads. - Adds the ability to set a 'home page' in the user prefences to determine a page to redirect to upon login. - Adds a 'Home' menu item under 'Main' - Adds a site preference for date format - Adds the cms_date_format modifier that reads the site preference as well as the user preference for date format (when in the admin section) 

CMSMS Places in Packt's Overall 2007 Open Source CMS Award

Posted November 2, 2007 by Ted Kulp

I'm pleased to report that CMS Made Simple won the 3rd place prize for the Overall Open Source CMS award. I must say that this is a huge honor. I was really excited that we were nominated, but never expected to place or win anything. I just want to thank the other developers that work on this project. You guys really help keep this project going strong. And of course, thanks to the community for not only voting, but supporting us as well.

And the winner is...

Posted October 20, 2007 by Daniel Westergren

Time has come to finally announce the winner of the design competition! First we wish to thank all who submitted their designs and made it a tough call for us to decide. Let's hear some drum rolls... as we announce the winner... Steve Sicherman! Steve - who is from Saskatoon, Canada - is currently working together with the Development Team with the markup for his design. It may take awhile before the site is dressed in its new clothes, as we also will do some restructuring in the process. For the curious of you, have a preview of the homepage and an example of the sub pages. We are very happy with Steve's design and think this will give a fresh, new look to the website of CMS Made Simple. For this, Steve will be sent some CMSMS swag as I learnt the Americans call it, that is some stuff with the CMSMS logo on it. For more info about Steve Sicherman and his work, please visit his website at There are some great examples of other designs he has made there too. Steve Sicherman writes this about himself:
I've been designing web sites since '95, and working for companies building enterprise-level Content Management Systems for about 6 years. My experience in the industry is what drew me to CMS Made Simple, I was very surprised to find an open source CMS application that was doing so many things right. While there are a number of powerful Open Source CMS's out there, CMSMS is the only one I'm comfortable handing over to clients with very little experience updating web content.
Again, our thanks to Steve and to everyone who submitted their designs! Sorry to those who would have liked to take part to, but weren't able to because of time constraints... There is a redesign of the themes site in the making, so we look forward to some great designs being posted there.
