Hi All,

We've just released v3.12 (and we're running it live on our website!).

Some of the new features to note are: 

  • New Pillbox Field: We've replaced the multi-select pulldown with select2 pillbox (see attached screenshot).  This displays selections as tags, lets users type in the field to "search" for options, and easily add and remove values.  Note that it still only allows you to select from the listed values, but it's much easier to use.
  • Legacy MySQL Scanner: A few people have asked for this.  This is an internal tool we've been using for detecting PHP/MySQL code that needs to be updated for PHP 7.  It has options to scan your plugins or an entire website.
  • Plugin Developers: Even for us, we're often looking for the best plugin hook to use.  We added a feature where if you're logged in as an admin user you can view-source on any CMS page to see a list of all plugin hooks available to be called.  
  • WYSIWYG: Added "Code Sample" button for showing formatted source code

Here's the complete changelog for v3.12:

Any reason you're not promoting the 3.13 release that's available?

Hi mizrahi, 

It was a pretty minor release and there wasn't a significant need to upgrade.  But I think that could be a little confusing so I'll be sure we post updates even for minor releases.  Thanks!

So I am testing this function on a new site:

-  scanning plugins works perfectly

- scanning the website crashes with a 500 error every time.  I am wondering where it selects the website address from?

As ALWAYS Dave...THANK YOU for your kind attention and assistance.  That's why I'll be a customer-for-life (even if I personally have had to slow down). Cheers!
