4.4 Beta 2


The second beta release of gpEasy 4.4 is now available. The new release fixes a few issues, makes installation more secure, cleans up some code structure and introduces fresh look for the admin interface.



It's been a while since our little CMS has been updated, so I felt it was time to set aside some time and work on the code a bit. For the most part, coding went smoothly and as of today, there's a new beta release available for download: Version 4.4b1.

So what's new?

  • Homepage can be set to something other than the first page in the main menu
  • Added support for password_hash() and password_verify()
  • Escape key closes admin popups
  • SPL Autoloading for addons (see the Example addon)
  • Multiple pages can be selected at a time in the Page Manager (hold down the shift key or control key to select multiple)
  • Many third party packages updated including jQuery and CKEditor



The final release of gpEasy 4.3.2 is now available. This is primarily a third-party package update for CKEditor, Less.php and Bootstrap.

4.3 Final


The wait is over.

The final release of gpEasy 4.3 brings some exciting new features to our CMS. Less.php was developed and integrated into gpEasy to provide the latest in dynamic stylesheets. With the addition of LESS support, we are also able to integrate Bootstrap 3. For those not familiar with Bootstrap, it is a "Sleek, intuitive, and powerful mobile first front-end framework for faster and easier web development".

Additional improvements include:

  • An optional more traditional admin view
  • Visual theme browsing
  • Newest versions of CKEditor, PHPMailer and jQuery UI
  • Improved pretty-url detection
  • Afrikaans, Croatian and Estonian Translations

... and much, much more

July Update


It has been a busy summer.

The response to gpEasy 4.0 was fabulous and brought us a record amount of traffic. Downloads doubled. Forum discussions expanded. All of our metrics were positive.

Shortly after the release, unfortunately, our host began to have problems and our site experienced an excessive amount of downtime. At the time, gpEasy.com was approaching the limits of our hosting plan and we were already considering different hosting options. Considering the downtime, the need for a better hosting package and bigger projects in the works, we decided to invest in a significant upgrade.

I won't go into the specs of our new host, but so far, I am very pleased. The piece of mind knowing we're ready to move forward is priceless!

Speaking of moving forward, here's a screenshot of the redesigned theme manager. And stay tuned, more announcements are coming soon!
