Got some pics of where you put your stickers? Send em in. Want some stickers? Visit concrete5.org and let us know.


It's a shameful secret: one of those most highly viewed areas of concrete5.org wasn't powered by concrete at all! You know those help and news sections on the front page of the C5 dashboard? Those were powered by an RSS feed, provided by a blog living at http://www.concrete5.org/blog/, which was built out of Wordpress. Not so any longer! Now, those live at our [update center](http://www.concrete5.org/help/building_with_concrete5/updates), where they will be much more closely integrated with the site. They'll be searchable through concrete5.org, and your concrete5.org user account can make comments on them as well as the forums, with one centralized login.

The Concrete5 community is an excellent place to go to get answers to your C5 questions.

Make sure to check out the forums for answers as well. They are all individual searchable, and can be easily monitored so you know when people respond to your posts.


We've added a lot to C5.org in the last few weeks, including bug and feature trackers, and our own forums, where you can get paid to help!

You can check them out at http://forums.concrete5.org


Well, we've been talking about our community marketplace for weeks now, and the first step is finally complete. We reorganized concrete5.org, buffed out the documentation features, added a job board, built out forums – even added a bounties forum where you can get paid to help on the project.

This just the beginning of new stuff you'll be seeing on concrete5.org in the coming weeks. There will be a large theme library, a blocks and applications marketplace, and much more. Right now we need your help buffing out the content in forums and giving us any feedback you can.

We just got lucky enough to get another interview! CMSCritic.com is a good looking site that I had never run into before they linked to us. You should check them out.

pirate boat franz gets interviewed by cmscritic.comIt looks like they've been super busy putting together a reasonably comprehensive list of CMS's (as much as CMSMatrix.org's community populated one seems to be.) It also looks like they're taking a little more of a design centric/portal approach than opensourcecms.com has.

Any way you slice it, you should check out the interview.


Yeah that's right. C5 rocks so amazingly hard that SourceForge decided to make us Project of The Month after only being on their site for 3 months! We've always thought of source forge as the Rolling Stone of open source – so we took some liberties with our photos…

Yay, THANK YOU SourceForge…


Attention Developers: we now have full API documentation available, as output by PHPDocumentor.

It's far from finished: it needs to be tidied up, better organized, and much of the code isn't well documented in the comments. However, hopefully it will be a useful starting point, and should grow over time.

View the full API here.

We're still hoping to add some tutorials soon, specifically for those interested in how to use C5's model-view-controller syntax to build applications that make use of multiple block and page types.


We've just released version 5.0.0 of Concrete. While we've been happy with the stability of C5 over the past few months, we've been fixing security issues, issues with certain system configurations, and trying to make the installation and configuration of the system even more elegant. Here's what's been changed in the latest and greatest:

you gotta see it, particularly the flash demo.
