Introducing a new look for 2019

December 21st, 2018 filled under “Announcements

Happy Friday everyone!

Today we’re introducing a new ‘default’ theme for PHP Melody. We’ve named it Apollo and it will replace the current ‘default’ PHP Melody theme starting with v2.8 (our next release).

Apollo is and will be available (free of charge) to any PHP Melody customer (past or future).  Speaking of future releases, the next PHP Melody update is scheduled for release in January 2019.

To download Apollo today, simply log into your Customer Account and go to the “Download Products” page.

A couple of notes before you rush to install Apollo on your site.

  1. Apollo is 100% responsive.
  2. Apollo works with any PHP Melody 2.7.x version.
  3. Apollo is still under development. It’s stable but we’re releasing this as a beta.
  4. Apollo is not yet customizable from the admin area but it will be in v2.8.
  5. Apollo has a live demo. Check it out here.
  6. If you uncover any problems or have suggestions, please use this form or email us

To install Apollo, download the file from your Customer Account and:

  1. Unzip
  2. Upload the unzipped ‘apollo-beta‘ folder into your installation’s /templates/ folder.
  3. Log into your PHP Melody admin dashboard. In the Settings > Layout Settings page you should see the new ‘apollo-beta‘ theme available. Select it and save the settings.

In case your layout is not looking right after switching themes, remember to clear the theme cache by deleting the files from /Smarty/templates_c/.

We’re here to help you so please don’t hesitate to contact our team if you need help.

PHP Melody v2.7.3: Maintenance Release

October 3rd, 2017 filled under “Announcements, From our Desk

Greetings fans of PHP Melody!

As more and more people use PHP Melody the better the software gets. Partly due to user feedback and partly due to code reviewers. Over the past few months we’ve received reports on how we can improve and strengthen our code. Several crucial security holes were patched in v2.7 thanks to reports made by such people.

Today, we’d like to extend our sincere gratitude and  thanks to an independent security researcher, Paulos Yibelo, who reported vulnerabilities to Beyond Security’s SecuriTeam Secure Disclosure program. Thank you Mr. Yibelo for helping us and our customers keep their data safe.

We now invite you to log into your account and download the v2.7.3 update package. Updating from v2.7.2 to v2.7.3 is seamless. The update will not overwrite any changes to your layout or code base. Please note that you will not have to update your theme to any plugins after applying this update package. In addition to the security patch, we’ve included fixes for the Facebook and Dailymotion video sources.

As a precautionary measure, we’ve patched all recent releases since v2.7. So, if you’re updating from PHP Melody v2.6 to v2.7 your site will already be secured. All things considered, we still recommend updating all the way to v2.7.3.

If you have any questions or need assistance, our team is ready to help you.

Have a great week and stay safe!
