Blog / General / Goodbye 2019, hello 2020!

Goodbye 2019, hello 2020!

The ending year 2019 was the year of the FlatPress comeback. Our revival plan worked quite well: Since February, we have the new FlatPress version 1.1 that brought FlatPress to current PHP versions. Also, FlatPress regained a lot of publicity, especially in Germany by being featured in the LinuxUser magazine and being listed on Heise Download, the biggest German software download portal.

One of my greatest pleasures was to see that the FlatPress community – you! – also got back together. I am very proud to take care of this little blogging engine that is being used, enjoyed and enhanced all over the world. Throughout the year, I have received a lot of bug reports and enhancement proposals, there were new plugins and themes, and sometimes I just got a little “Thank you”. This all tells me that FlatPress as self-hosted blogging engine still is important, even (or especially!) in times of huge walled-garden platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

I’m excited to see what 2020 will bring. Franah is working on a completely new admin panel which already looks awesome, and we still have a few issues to be taken care of. Also, Matthias keeps testing the heck out of FlatPress which always brings some little glitches to fix ;)
As in 2019, FlatPress still won’t change the world, but it will stay your reliable choice when it comes to easily-set-up, self-hosted, standard-compliant, great-looking blogging sites.

For the last days of 2019, I hope you all have a peaceful time whereever you are. Take some days off, visit your families, and don’t forget to take care of those who need it. And then have a great start into a successful new year 2020!

All the best
Arvid

Blog / General / Enjoy the holidays!

Enjoy the holidays!

Hey all you FlatPressers out there,

I wish you all great holidays with your family, friends and beloved ones. If you have the chance, use this special time of the year to take care of people in need, share love with those who deserve it, or just have a good time with folks you really like. And of course, have a great start into the upcoming new year - it may be a successful one for all of you.

As for FlatPress, 2019 is hopefully going to bring the project to new life. There is still plenty of work, but: The first steps are done!

Thanks for all the support I already got on my mission to revive FlatPress - and still continue to get. It’s very encouraging to see you appreciate my efforts. There are still a few things to be done until the project is finally transferred and the new version can be released. Stay tuned and drop by once in a while to get the latest news!

All the best
Arvid

I wondered why it is so quiet on the forums lately. Turns out, registration is broken… -.-
But fear not, I work on it!

So for now, if you have questions about FlatPress or want to contact me, please use the comments here in the blog or just mail me.

Sorry for the downtime!

Hey guys! I’ve been away for a few days and the backend of the (non-flatpress based) forum got corrupted. I’ve now fixed the issue, and the forums are back online! sorry!

Wiki

Our wiki has moved to A2 Hosting.

What is going to change for me?
Absolutely nothing. As long as your DNS cache has refreshed you should be accessing the new host

How can I check whether I’m connected to the new host?

ping wiki.flatpress.org

if the IP is 216.119.132.66 then you’re fine.

That’s all :) It should be a matter of a few hours tops. If you’re reading this tomorrow, then you can probably ignore this warning.
