Progress information

The theme database update have been completed.

We are now hosting a lot more Themes here in our AddonDB.
Perhaps I was to picky when it comes to some of the choices I made.
However others would say that I was to generous instead.
I would like to think that I managed to find a good spread of styles and designs along with a wide range of colors for as much variety as possible.

Themes database is about to go wild

I feel that we have been lacking in our distribution when it comes to themes from our AddonDB, currently we only host 120ish themes here on PHP-Fusion Main.
There have been thousands of themeīs made for PHP-Fusion over the years, our current database is simply not reflecting this fact at all.
We do not even have that much of a variety in our Themes. With that said, we have seen some awesome themes uploaded recently.

The third anniversary

Today is the third anniversary of Nick Jones, the founder of PHP-Fusion who passed away so tragically.
We all need to remember what he did for everyone that finds PHP-Fusion useful.
One thing we can do for Nick Jones and his family on this day is to ask ourselves what we can do for his legacy on this day and onwards.
I am very glad to also be able to report that PHP-Fusion is still here and we are growing stronger for each year once more.

Book of Condolences

Merry Christmas 2013

To all our Administrators, National Support Sites, Co-workers, Users and to our friends and their families we wish you all a Merry Christmas!

A few words regarding our NSS sites

Ive been appointed by Domi to follow up some issues while our developers are aiming for the completion of v8, long overdue. Nevertheless, the day we release our long awaited v8, all things of the whole PHP-Fusion community must be spick and span and ready to function flawlessly. Yes, we do have high hopes and expectations for our coming version, the v8!

First and last, I hope that this post will lead to constructive solutions and cooperation between different communities within the larger community, it is not my aim to further divide some of the things that today does not work that well together, on the contrary, I wish to make some fencemending here.

One of this great communities advantages has always been the very strong and consequent localization of the project as a whole. Thanks to many of our Official Support Sites, our NSSs. And as far as Im able to tell, that part is still very good and we maintain a high standard.

What is a bit more saddening in this regard is that while browsing around the different NSSs, I can see that some has not been keeping up, not posted news etc and also keeping development inside their own NSSs. Please check this link, especially No 1, 7 and 12, also to a certain degree No 13: NSS Rules

Those are some of the points our Official NSSs need to look over and communicate with MT, the sooner the better.

This is not what we have agreed upon, we have agreed that all NSSs shall publish news from the UK main site and also to publish all locally developed addons on our UK main site. That is not happening today and quite frankly, it is a part of our agreement and we will insist on this starting to shape up asap, or we will have to revoke the status of any NSS that do not comply with our common rules.

This is not meant in a harsh way, but we have a deal and lets stick to it or we have no deal. Quite elementary, really.

Having that said, I hope that people see the sensible in such actions and also that people start to participate more actively on our UK main site, with ideas, development etc, UK main is the natural place for development etc since it is the place where the development of next, and future versions, of PHP-Fusion core will take place. And it is the place where all of the core development take place today, if we all help out and pull this load together the same way simultaneously, well get there faster and better.



New Official German support site!

After many years of service, our old German NSS has decided to close down their site. Nobody communicated this fact to MT, we just had the news via the grapevine that there was problems with the old site and one day it appeared a notice that they were closing down the site and that all support for PHP-Fusion would cease to exist as shown on this link: Old Non-Official German Site

We thank the old German NSS for the time spent and we have the pleasure to welcome our new German NSS, on the adress that follows:New German Support Site

The old site still flags with being the Official Supportsite for Germany, that is obviously not the case, the NSS we support and consider as the Official German Support site is the one we link to from this site.

The best of luck to our new German Support Site! Cheers.

Logo competition [ Update x2 ]

Development & Design
We have due to popular demand decided to have a PHP-Fusion V8 logo competition.
We hope that this also compensates everyone that looked forward to the theme competition that we postponed until we have a PHP-Fusion v8 beta out.
The logo can be either with only PHP-Fusion as text or with PHP-Fusion text with the number 8 and the atom theme we always had need to be retained.
All logoīs we receive to this competition will be regarded as PHP-Fusionīs intellectual property and free to use.

In order for us to be able to approve and start the competition we will need a minimum of four participantīs. Each participant will be allowed to submit two versions of their logo.
Everyone interested in this competition need to send their contributionīs to me no later than 2013-09-01.
After 2013-09-01 we will start a poll within PHP-Fusion staff where all PHP-Fusion staff getīs to vote on their favourite logo.
We will close this vote poll 2013-09-15 and introduce the winners the following day.
We will have a total ranking between 1 and 3.
The winner will receive 50€, second place will receive 25€ and third place will receive 15€.
Prizeīs winnerīs will be paid via PayPal.

Thank you everyone for your contributions, we have recived alot of fine concepts!
We will accept contributions until 2013-09-01

[ Update x 2 ]
We have had equal results in the vote.
Because of this we will need to run a vote on top voted logos that share positions.
Results will be presented and final after 20th this month!

PHP-Fusion, the first decade!

Believe it or not, we have ve been around for more than a decade now!
Nick Jones started this CMS right here on April 12 2003.

In the extended news we will cover some of our past and current progress that we have had already!

Update v7.02.07 released

Critical patch v7.02.07 released!

Since our last patch we"ve discovered several security vulnerabilities that were not adressed in that patch, which have had us working really hard to release a major patch with all critical vulnerabilities tight shut once and for all, and also some bugīs have been adjusted.
Since this patch adresses several critical security vulnerabilities, we strongly recommend every single user out there to upgrade to this patch.
The version number is v7.02.07 and below follows a list of what"s been adressed.

Download upgrade here : PHP-Fusion 7.02.07-Update
Download full version here : PHP-Fusion 7.02.07

All PHP-Fusion sites will be merged June 1st!

As a part of our ever continuing efforts to become more efficient we will close the separate Development site June 1st and keep all of our development, support, and all other related issues on this here site, UK Main.

United States of America has been granted NSS status

PHP Fusion Network
Some of you may have seen an american site lurking out there as another small community hub and perhaps wondering of its ties with the Official International Community and its base here at the UK site.

Well, wonder no more!

PHP-Fusion U.S.A has started up as a small, yet strong and reliable , prospering sibling to our other NSS sites and it is with great pleasure and pride I have the honour to announce it's official status as National Support Site: PHP-Fusion U.S.A.
PHP-Fusion U.S.A NSS

With this announcement I hope (as MT as well as Coordinator of 8 and NSS Liaison) to tie even more angloamerican users to the International Community of PHP-Fusion and also hoping for some of their cunning coders and graphic artists to do even more towards our development.


V8 Development progress

Hello everyone!

We know that many people have been questioning our current development progress.

In order to simplify and speed up our progress we have started to get Github up and running.

With Github initiated everyone can see what's been done and what's left to do, naturally also help out with detecting optimizations and errors in published codes.

As a result of this we will start to shut the V8 site down and move all needed tools to the UK Main site in the development section here.

We have made one important structural change in order to become more efficient.
The role as Lead Developer have been removed as a whole and Christian will be one of our Senior developers instead.

The Management Team will setup milestones of what we want developed to the core and pass the task down to our developers who whishes to help out.
We will try to assign a dedicated developer to each task we agree upon.
The developer responsible for that task will be the current taskīs team leader and have itīs own dedicated thread to follow it through.

These are some of the key milestones we whish to achieve before a PHP-Fusion V8 beta can be released.

• Make everything possible to infusions, We need to lift it out of the core but remain as supported by core, (Shipped with pack if you will).
This development step was decided a long time ago, but no list was created, thus causing some confusion.
We do not make a MCS (Mass Content System), we make a CMS. It is time we prove it once and for all and focus our efforts on the core and itīs functions rather than our community plugins.
New, improved and very light core which will be able to handle all sorts of Addons a lot better and easier.
Community plugins are better handled and maintained by the community that requires it, if we receive good mods we will naturally use them.
Here are some examples: Articles, FaQ, Forums, News, Photo Albums, Web links, Polls, Downloads.

• Rewrite of setup.php to match the above changes ( Selectable setup of what to include in your installation )
• PHP Data Objects (PDO) - Will need to find someone who knows how this works and how to make it work within our current framework.
• SEO friendly URL rewriting layer. - Ankur.
• A general approach to subcategory structures. - Matthew.
• New shiny admin interface. - Halīs project completed and implemented. - Halisson Ricardo
• Theme engine improvements. - We will focus on Hienīs core engine.

It is our intentions and hopes that this somewhat altered structure of doing the actual coding will speed up the whole process as such and we hope that after the initial getting used to Github,
you will all be able to contribute to rewrite this CMS to become a major player on the market.

Simple, intuitive, fast and finally, easy to understand and adjustable for our users.
After all, they are the ones we develop for!

For further details, keep an eye open for more details to come.

Regards, PHP-Fusion Management Team
