Among the changes is a new option in the Offcanvas section settings within the Layout Manager enabling you to toggle between the more efficient CSS3 animations and the more reliable CSS2 animations.

Gantry 5.2.2 Released

This is a minor, but important update. This is especially true for WordPress users, which will benefit from a greatly improved page load time. It also adds a new |imagesize Twig Filter that returns width="X" height="Y" as attributes for images, as well as a notification message that appears in the event that a particle is missing on the front end.

 

We have also added a display that indicates the current level of a column in the Menu Editor. This will make keeping track of things while navigating through it a bit easier.

Faster, Safer, More Stable - Joomla and PHP7

Faster, Safer, More Stable - Joomla and PHP7 | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
In the beginning, Joomla 1.0 supported PHP 4.2. The minimum requirement for the PHP version was adjusted with every major version jump. Thus, the development of Joomla was always closely linked to the development of PHP, and its global use at the shared web hosting companies.

This was a simple and very logical reason. With each new version of PHP, you can assume that not only were new functions were introduced, but also speed and stability were improved. PHP 5 brought the support for object-oriented programming, which made it possible for the developers of Joomla to write better code - to name just one example of many. A lot of the new features in PHP also had a direct impact on the security and stability of Joomla.

Critical update for EasySocial! Update to 1.4.7 now!

Critical update for EasySocial! Update to 1.4.7 now! | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
I hope most of you are enjoying your weekends! During the weekend, one of our customer submitted a list of log files pertaining several files which was uploaded to the server and they seem to be sending spams with these files. I was very curious over what they have done and started deciphering their codes and started my own code forensics.


After spending almost several hours of code forensics, I have concluded that our custom fields weren't performing the correct file checks. It does perform the validation correctly but the file still get's uploaded and this is pretty risky if malicious hackers were able to find the hole.
