We got rid of our hiccups!

posted 2011-11-29 by Phil Sturgeon

Many of our users have been noticing some down-time, bugs and error messages on the website and for this we are incredibly sorry. We have been fighting tooth and nail to get our website stable for a few weeks now working through all sorts of challenges such as port flooding, spam attacks, hosting outages, migration problems and even DNS problems. The website is back to being stable now, but we just wanted to explain a little about the problems.

Help shape the future of PyroCMS

posted 2011-10-19 by Jerel Unruh

As PyroCMS has become more widely used and we have a more diverse community we would like to ask for your input. With v1.3.0 we launched PyroCMS Professional which allowed developers to rebrand the admin panel and manage multiple sites from one installation and we have a v2.0 coming out soon with a huge load of amazing new features and a great new Control Panel, but we would like your help in where we go next.


Verson 2.0 and Lex

posted 2011-10-16 by Phil Sturgeon

If you follow us on Twitter you'll know we've been busy little bees working on an amazing new Control Panel, we've added a ton of new features and were just about to release v1.4, but now we've decided to go a little further and release a full blown v2.0 next along with a great new feature: Lex. Lex handles Tags and is better, faster and stronger than the Tag system in v1.x. This article will explain why we are changing, how - if at all - this will affect you and what is happening with the new release.


Don't forget, we're still open-source!

posted 2011-10-03 by Phil Sturgeon

It's been about two months since we launched PyroCMS Professional and we're so pleased to say that things are going even better than expected. Sales are good, feedback is brilliant, bugs are being fixed and the v1.4.0 is looking like the best update we've yet to see, but we just want to make one quick reminder: we're still an open-source project and we still need help from developers.


Keywords, Sitemaps and CodeIgniter: Oh My!

Recent login problems

posted 2011-08-09 by Phil Sturgeon

Recently users have been noticing a whole load of strange errors with logins and we've finally worked out all the problems. This was a big job and it gave two of us a migrane, but we got to the end of it. For giggles you can read along, or just head back to the site and make sure it all still works nicely.

So, with that it's time to announce v1.2.0-beta1!

PyroCMS reaches final: v1.0

posted 2010-11-26 by

Today we are incredibly pleased to annouce the biggest update to PyroCMS in it's 14 months of it's open-source history. v1.0 may seem like a small jump in numbers from v0.9.9.7 but really this is more like a 2.0! Everything has been logically restructured, Dwoo has been replaced with an amazingly powerful Tags and Plugin syntax and its all running much quicker, while looking considerably sexier.


Getting better by the day

posted 2010-11-18 by

Yesterday we posted some new design tweaks for the main website and today we have drastically improved the website and the forums. You can now search for topics, see new posts since you last logged in and generally get around the forums much better. There are more improvements to come but this comes as a drastic improvement for a community that needed somewhere good to talk. With the site, forums and documentation all improved, what is next?
