Some time has passed since the introduction of ImpressPages 5. We have changed our main download link from ImpressPages 4 to ImpressPages 5 and state it as a stable release.

Download

Thanks to https://github.com/Remo and https://github.com/boing6000 for updates!

A solid chunk of our community is willing to use Composer to include their beloved libraries. We are also in interest to use Composer to include 3rd party libraries instead of copy-pasting them into the core.

This version introduces a close integration with Composer. You can not only install ImpressPages via Composer but add ImpressPages plugins as well. 

This step has been planned for a long time and we have tried several different ways until we have found the best one. If you have concerns, please state them in the comments below.

We will keep releasing the ZIP version of ImpressPages. If you don't use Composer, you will be able to keep using ImpressPages and plugins as usual!

Benefits of using Composer

  • all PHP files are placed outside of the public directory
  • there are no conflicts if two plugins include the same PHP library

A tiny update to release the contributed code and a small bug fix.

Set icons to your plugins

Thanks to boing6000, you can assign icons to your plugin in Setup/plugin.json file

{
  "title": "My Sample plugin",
  "version": "1.00",
  "name": "SamplePlugin",
  "description": "Just a sample plugin.",
  "author": "CompanyName",
  "icon": "fa-plus"
}

Double slash in  a canonical tag

In some cases, ImpressPages were putting a double slash at the end of the canonical tag. This update fixes this issue.

Please note, that if you use ImpressPages on a PHP7 server, you have to install PHP XML library. It is a very common library and often present on most of regular LAMP servers. But if you setup your own server, this is must have for some of ImpressPages functions, like the file upload.

Recently, a serious security issue has been found in PhpMailer library we are using. To address this, we immediately update PhpMailer to the most recent stable version. 

To our knowledge, ImpressPages doesn't expose that bug, so you probably are protected by ImpressPages even if you don't update. But you never know - it is better to update.

This update requires PHP 5.5 or greater. This is due to requirements of updated libraries (Aura router, PSR, zend-i18n). If you update via the browser, you will encounter an alert, that the update has failed, but after the refresh, it will show 4.9.0 and everything must be OK. It is just the nasty way 4.8.1 version reacts to the update. Sorry about this.

If you clone ImpressPages from GIT, now you have to run composer install from the command line before installation.

  • admin logout behavior
  • preparation for PHP 5.5

Fixed CSRF  check

Apparently, CSRF check was broken in recent version. Please make sure all your code passes securityToken value when doing POST requests as doing POST without securityToken will fail after the update. Read more about what the security token is.

Changes in  ImpressPages core

We haven't touched the core features for a while. Now decided to do some refactoring in the bootstrap engine of ImpressPages. None of your websites should be affected due to this change because just very specific functions have been changed. Nevertheless, we state it as a major version update, so that you double-check if you don't use any of changed functionality. Please see the list bellow for all changes.

                                        Fixing compatibility issues with the changes on Google Maps. Now Google forces each website to provide a unique Google Maps API key for maps to work. Otherwise instead of the map you'll see a message below.

                                        User-friendly layout naming is now available thanks to Deimantas. Just add following line at the top of your layout file and it's name will appear in the page properties list:

                                        <?php // @Layout name: *chosen name* ?>

                                         This is how it appears in a page properties list:

                                        ImpressPages always had a light-box included by default and one or two plugins to change it. KheopsDESIGN has contributed a bunch of new lightbox plugins and made ImpressPages exceptionally rich in selection of lightboxes.

                                        Just want to let you know that ImpressPages plugin and theme market has grown significantly this year and keeps growing. Just last two months we had 6 new plugins and 2 new themes. I'm very happy, that most of the plugins are free. That's not only great value for everyone but also the great source to learn and improve.

The change worth to mention is trailing slash added at the end of each page url. Old websites will keep having the same URL structure. But newly installed websites will have trailing slash at the end of all URLs. In case you don't like it, you can turn it off in Configuration section of admin. In theory pages with trailing slash at the end should load faster in Apache. In either case, all pages will be accessible without trailing slash too and will have canonical meta tag to avoid content duplication and make it perfect for both: users and SEO.

                                                                                          Next release will be focued to add missing features to GRID.

That was good while there were few items in the market. Today we have updated the way themes and plugins are ranked to move the best of them to the top. Expect all times to change place several times while we fine tune the key factors metrics.

Every week we will update you on support issues that we've been dealing with. This time it's widget layouts; custom widget settings; single and double quotes.

                                                                                                14

And we're happy to be a part of it! This time we collected 10 of those beautiful website examples that are running on ImpressPages . Check the list for inspiration and go build one of your own.

What about the web? Our team decided to make a list of the most common web tools used in their daily work. Take a look and maybe you'll find something new and worthy!

One thing is unanimous, though. We all browse. To find the hottest news, to explore our interests, to boost creativity... This time four of our team members decided to share their morning browsing / reading rituals – each named three websites they "wake up to".

                                                                                                14

The same with ImpressPages, but this time we dripped something extra neat into our 4.0 version. This release comes with a new and improved set of widgets. Each was designed to make content editing simple, fast and fun. Let’s see what’s inside! 

                                                                                                14

But we are finally ready to say finito, ImpressPages 4.0 is ready! This release was an important checkpoint for us and we made it. Now we want YOU to rob us a bit of our excitement and happiness. As of today, you can download the new version, start exploring and build beautiful stable websites on it.

This is how we'd describe OrangeAds, a creative web agency from Lithuania. Some time ago we found out they are using ImpressPages to build websites that...run! We wanted to know more about them ever since so we squeezed in for a little chit-chat. Let's see what they told us.
