Welcome to Exponent
This patch fixes several issues in the v2.3.7 release and v2.3.7 patch #1, patch#2, and patch#3. It also provides several tweaks and even some new features, though the main focus is providing several regression fixes. It should be noted that the new optional 'Upgrade permissions' upgrade scripts will attempt to lock down the site by fixing file and folder permissions (except for cgi-bin) which means also turning off the 'execute' permission. It must be noted that this patch (like the previous patches to v2.3.7) will break any custom text module view templates using in-place editing. Unlike previous patches, this patch file also includes all the 'installation' files in the event you secured your site by deleting or renaming the /install folder. Patch #4 to v2.3.7 is found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/exponentcms/files/exponent-2.3.7-patch-4.zip/download ...Read More

Though we've been working hard to close Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities, this one could be more permanent and seems to result from an anomaly within PHP which allows a string variable to be internally interpreted and processed as an array thereby masking the payload. ...Read More

Exponent provides an excellent environment for writing and sharing articles or 'blogs'. A site where the 'back-end' is on the front-end and a variety of what-you-see-is-what-you-get WYSIWYG editors take away some of the creative hassles with writing. Another nice convenience for writing articles which is found on other blog applications (like WP), is editing the articles offline by using an application to manage and edit multiple blog articles. Though there was preliminary support for this feature in the v0.99beta1 release (before v2.x), it has not been available to the v2.x code line...until now. ...Tweet
(Corrected May 5, 2014) Recently, Google changed the way they rank search hits by elevating those from 'mobile friendly' web sites and lowering those which are not mobile friendly. To be 'mobile friendly' your web site must conform to modern standards (HTML5) AND must be small device and 'touch friendly' ...meaning the page is viewable on a small screen and the buttons/links have some space/distance between them for 'fat fingers. The easiest way to make your Exponent CMS site 'mobile friendly' is to switch or update to a Twitter Bootstrap 3 based theme. Exponent CMS allows you to do this in just a matter of minutes. ...Tweet
