Pligg Content Management System 1.1.4 is out now, and we urge you to upgrade as soon as possible. This release patches a number of security issues brought to our attention by a couple different third party sources. These updates are critical to keep your site secure and will make you less vulnerable to certain types of attacks.
It’s not all security updates though for this release. We have also added a new anti-spam module titled “Human Check”. Its job is to make life harder on spambots by using an array of honeypot fields and randomized field names. The module will operate on both comment and story submissions.
Another new feature added to Pligg CMS is live story previews. You can now condense the submission process to a single page and users can see an Ajax preview of their story displayed as they fill in the submission fields. Check it out at http://pligg.com/demo/
Other good news about this release is that the upgrade process is pretty simple. The only complicated template edits are contained in the submission template files to accommodate the new live story preview feature. The few other files that have been updated are pretty minor and shouldn’t take long to apply to your own templates.
