SiteGround web hosting company has become the official hosting partner of Open Classifieds (OC), which is one of the most popular free web applications for building classified sites. As part of the partnership Open-classifieds.com itself has been moved to a SiteGround server and a special joint hosting offer was created by the two companies for all Open Classifieds users.
Hey there! My name is Brian Krogsgard, and I'm one of the co-organizers of WordCamp Birmingham, a regional WordPress conference in Alabama that we affectionally refer to as WP Y'all.
I was introduced to some of the SiteGround team at WordCamp San Francisco, where we had an opportunity to talk about the awesome things they are doing in the managed hosting ecosystem. Trust me, it's some cool stuff. And you know that of course, since you've entrusted them with your business!
It is mid-summer now but security issues take no vacation. Actually they find the most inappropriate time to appear and make our lives more interesting, to say the least. On Thursday, 25 July the Joomla! Project announced the availability of Joomla 3.1.4/2.5.13 and many users upgraded their websites because the new releases provide tons of useful new features and bug fixes. One will think: job well done, it is time to hit the beach! But… On Thursday, 01 August, the Joomla! Project surprisingly announced the immediate availability of Joomla! 3.1.5/2.5.14. Apparently not much time to sip exotic summer cocktails was allowed. The reason for this extremely short period between the two versions was that a critical level security issue was discovered just after the previous release and it had the potential to affect all Joomla! CMS versions. Yes, that's correct - we are talking about all the Joomla! sites out there. All versions are affected - 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3. Sounds scary, right? Not if you're hosted on SiteGround servers!
It's Jazz Friday again. Happy new WordPress release everybody! WordPress 3.6 is live and the list of improvements, new features and bug fixes seems to be endless. Since you may have already looked over the official post at WordPress.org I'll try to highlight only the most important changes and skip those 700+ fixes and minor UI changes. SiteGround uses WordPress to power up this blog and our knowledge base, and I have already updated both instances without any issues along the way.
We just got back from a long and utterly exciting journey to San Francisco for the biggest WordCamp of the year – WordCamp San Francisco. We proudly sponsored the conference for a second consecutive year and to say that we had a blast will be an understatement! There were more than 600 people attending, and I had the feeling we spoke to almost all of them, amazing line-up of speakers and sessions, including Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word, and the Contribute day that made this event especially valuable for me personally.
