Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone in our Community! I hope you will be working on exciting projects in 2018, hopefully also based on eZ Platform 2.0. I want to thank everyone, all members of our community and all who contributed to our projects in 2017. And of course, we'd like to see you continue to contribute in 2018.

If you keep a list of New Year Resolutions, why not add one more? Such as: one pull request a month to eZ's repositories? If you are curious about what we accomplished in 2017, read my review of the year.

Injecting content into rich text fields at the template level

Benjamin Kroll from Mugo Web wrote an article about injecting content into rich text fields at the template level in eZ Publish / eZ Platform.

"On content heavy sites, it can be useful to inject snippets of code into CMS data before display (for example, into the body copy of an article). These snippets could be automatically generated glossaries, tables of contents, or ad units, placed mid-content."

Read Benjamin's article which explores a general approach to getting such snippets into place.

Save the date for Web Summer Camp 2018

Netgen has announced the date for Web Summer Camp 2018.

"After another successful summer camp in 2017, we decided to stay in a charming town of Rovinj once again, with Lone Hotel being our venue. We are not changing the dates of the conference either - from August 29 to September 1, 2018, we will welcome you once again to our conference."

Question of the Week

Vivien asked on Slack: do you have a link to install the demo of eZ Platform v2? I followed the documentation but I ended with the previous version of eZ Platform.

Sylvain Guittard answered: We hope to tag ezplatform-demo as stable next week. And also update the documentation. André Romcke added: Ok, 2.0 requires PHP 7.1, so that might explain it, after asking Vivien if she was on PHP 7.0 which she confirmed.

More interesting questions on our Forum: Felix Laate with a challenge on creating a FieldType in v2, and being unable to login to eZ Platform after v1.13.0 upgrade by Jani Tarvainen.
