Franz and Andrew take live questions from viewers, give away free swag and launch the new "How Would We Do That?" segment, where the crew looks at a real, live website and talks about how they'd build it using concrete5.

The latest version of concrete5 adds some new options and mobile capabilities to the YouTube block, and fixes some bugs from 5.4.2, including those with layouts, the Zend Framework, the scrapbook, marketplace item downloading, composer, and more. It is a recommended download for all those running 5.4.2.

Full 5.4.2.1 Release Notes Available Here >

Ryan just posted the current development version of the wordpress site importer to github:
https://github.com/concrete5/wordpress_site_importer

When this is ready for showtime it'll be a free add-on.
This was originally written by ScottC, then GregJoyce picked it up at concrete5. It's status is described in the README in the code, but it basically works, even with really large imports, but it's formatting is a bit rough and the data that's imported is not complete.

If anyone has energy to put into it it'd be much appreciated.


Love concrete5 but haven't told everyone you know about it? Well let these awesome T-Shirts do the job for you.

Let's give this another shot after our technical failure last week.


concrete5 5.4.2 introduces Composer, a new way to edit your site's pages, better interface multilingual support through a dashboard configuration screen, updates important core libraries and provides over 60 bug and security fixes, behavioral improvements and developer updates. These bug fixes and security updates make this a recommended update for anyone running 5.4.1.1.

Full 5.4.2 release notes are here >

Update: Ustream let us down on this one. We'll try again next week.


Versions of concrete5 feature rudimentary anti-spam tools, including an IP ban-list and captcha support, but no unified settings page for managing these items. Furthermore, there is no support for any captcha besides the SecureImage library, which is a bit long in the tooth (and somewhat ineffective), nor is there any support for a third party anti-spam service like Typepad Anti-Spam or Akismet. We would like to change this in concrete5 5.5.
