Welcome to Exponent
(Updated 11 Apr 2014) It's been a while since the last update to Exponent...which was the plan. Several users were having to spend an inordinate amount of time continually updating their sites to the latest version, so we've slowed down our version updates from monthly to between quarterly and semi-annually (every 3 to 6 months). Hopefully, the 2014 Wish List article whetted your appetite for what will actually hit the streets later this spring. Because we'll be implementing MANY new features, we've also decided to bump minor versions. Here's some of the things you can look forward to in v2.3.0. ...Read More
We've experienced a LOT of forum spamming lately, so much so that we changed some things which inadvertently disallowed new user registrations...then when fixing that issue and requiring admin approval prior to account activation, we were overwhelmed with new account registrations. Luckily, all those 'tests' prevented most if not all spam from posting to the forum. However our old forum software (PhpBB3) simply doesn't seem to have the tools to combat this form of attack. Therefore we've moved to using Vanilla Forums software. ...Read More

Version 2.3.0 is the follow-up to version 2.2.3 and was given a version bump due to the many new features added. It also marks a 'slowing down' of version releases as it's purposely been five months since the last release. While it doesn't require as many changes as the move to v2.2.0 (which deprecated all the old 1.x code), it would still be wise to note and adhere these following changes. ...Tweet
Version 2.3.0 includes a new modern File Manager which (in the long run) will make it much easier to manage and work with uploaded files. In general, elFinder follows an 'operating system' paradigm, so it should be fairly logical to begin using, but it is much different than the old Exponent File Manager. ...Tweet
Back in version 2.0.8 we added the LESS stylesheet compiler to Exponent. LESS is a dynamic stylesheet language which extends CSS with dynamic behavior such as variables, mixins, operations and functions. This functionality makes it much easier to create flexible stylesheets since redundant styles and style variations can be handled by the compiler/server instead of the designer. Though this addition to Exponent was primarily to support Twitter-Bootstrap, its use is increasing especially beginning with v2.2.3. ...Tweet
