Portland OR, Oct. 15, 2020 – Concrete5, an open source content management system, today announced that it has been recognized as a champion in the 2020 Web Experience Management Emotional Footprint report from SoftwareReviews, a division of IT research and advisory firm Info-Tech Research Group. The award is based on the aggregate emotional response ratings for various dimensions of the vendor-client relationship and product effectiveness, creating a powerful indicator of overall user feeling toward the vendor and product.
Summary: Chrome version 83.0.4103.61 broke concrete5 editing (and affected other CMSs), but there are two ways to fix this problem:
- the next Chrome update, version 83.0.4103.97, fixed the problem. If you have any problems editing or using concrete5 with the Chrome browser, please try updating to the latest version.
- an upgrade to concrete5, version 8.5.3, also fixed the problem. This update includes security fixes and other improvements, so you should update to the latests version when possible.
With all of the uncertain news I just wanted to briefly assure you that PortlandLabs and concrete5 are prepared and running smoothly.
PortlandLabs is pleased to announce that PortlandLabs is now ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified!
Today concrete5 documentation is focused around technical developer docs, and more interface focused editors guide. There’s also a searchable collection of Tutorials, which are typically short and very task specific. We want to create a new Implementation Guide.
We are looking for accomplished interactive media designers. This may be either an individual freelancer or an agency that provides services. We generally do not sell design or strategy services, but we do need internal design support. We have an immediate need of redesigning PortlandLabs.com, and we’d like to develop more on-going relationships with design resources we can recommend to our clients.
Did this interview with Dino - was super fun, thanks!
In less than a week, I'll be boarding a plane heading to the twelfth annual PHPUK conference. PHPUK is one of the largest PHP conferences in the world and boasts a strong lineup of talks including topics around new PHP features, community, hosting, performance, security, and even dealing with people.
One talk I’m particularly looking forward to is entitled “Towards a framework-less world” where Michael Cullum speaks to the growing trend of micro-libraries and framework agnostic code.
The fun will be hosted at The Brewery, which has been serving brews and hosting events since the mid-eighteenth;' century! This venue is large enough to host three tracks at once, that means for any one time slot there are three talk options for you to choose from. The camaraderie that comes with a shared understanding of the problems we all face as PHP developers and the shared experience of learning and teaching is humbling, to say the least. Even with all the learning and teaching, the thing I’m absolutely most excited about is getting to see old friends, and making new ones, from the concrete5 community and the greater PHP community.
So if you are heading to PHPUK as well, or if you are in London, do not hesitate to reach out to me!
I went to PNWPHP again this year and again I was struck by how open and welcoming everyone was. I ended up leaving with a sense of inspiration and community. I truly feel like I’ve met some lifelong friends. Feelings isn’t the only thing I got, there were incredible talks about all kinds of interesting things. Some I knew a little bit about, others completely new to me.
