Textpattern 4.0.6

Published: 3 February 2008 | 3 comments

Textpattern, the CMS that powers this site, recently released version 4.0.6 and with it comes numerous improvements, fixes and a few additions (and deprecations). Nothing particularly ground breaking but it’s still a good and it seems necessary update, based on the fixes made. From the TXP blog:

We have fixed no less than six security issues. Because half of those can be used from the public side, updating is strongly recommended.

A few plugins may need to be updated as well. So with all that said, if you are TXP user, take the time to update as soon as possible.

One day I’m going to make the switch to Textpattern and stick with it. I’ve actually converted by blog to it in the past (in a dev environment) but decided not to keep it due to complexities with fixing links and converting the Wordpress theme I’m using or creating a new one.

I just haven’t had the time and playing with web sites is more of a hobby for me than I need experience with for a job. Nonetheless, I wish I knew Textpattern better because you and many of the other guys from Godbit seem to love it.

Thanks for the heads-up Yannick. I really like the new TXP admin. Of course, it’s been 2 and a half years since I installed it and this is my first upgrade.

The images tab alone is what I’ve been missing. Finally I can search in the images area and their organized by default with my most recent images on top. Imagine that.

I should have done this a long time ago.

Matt: Nathan’s Textpattern book would be helping in getting you up to speed with TXP. You could also give ExpressionEngine a try, but hey, use whatever works best for you.

Andy: I thought you upgraded to 4.0.5 the last time I posted about it? I can’t believe you held out this long before doing an upgrade. :) I usually try to do an update as soon as a new version is out. I guess I just like new things. :p
