Resuming the WordPress automatic update feature featured image

Back in December of last year, we let you know that we decided to temporarily pause the automatic update feature of EBN blogs. We did this to protect your blogs from potentially breaking due to the upcoming WordPress 5.0 update, which many people thought was rushed. We were initially going to re-enable the feature as […]

Blog imports are one of the pain points that have been on our radar for quite some time and our goal is to completely automate them. Until now blog imports were done semi-automated. You sent us the necessary data in the spreadsheet and we took it from there. Our EBN Clone plugin helped us with […]

We are introducing more changes to the UI. This time we have touched the Settings page. We felt that there is too much information on one page so our main goal was to divide those settings into more logical sections.

The WordPress 5.0 is the biggest release of the year. With the controversy surrounding this release, we’ve decided to disable our automatic update feature until all kinks have been resolved.

EBN System Update #25 featured image

For the last 6 months, we’ve been working hard on making EBN source code as easy to maintain as possible. The majority of EBN is written in Python and as some of you know the End of Life for Python 2.7 has been set to 2020 (ref). I’m happy to announce that we’ve already rewritten […]

Let’s Encrypt is rapidly advancing secure website encryption with their free SSL. We also see more and more EBN users requesting the certificate, so we’ve decided to create a button that will enable it for you in one-click. You can find the button above the Report Problem. Once the blog has enabled HTTPS, it will show […]
