Exponent v2.6.0 Released!
Exponent v2.6.0 was released to add support for PHP v7.4 and MySql v5.7+ 'strict' mode and initial support for PHP v8.x and Twitter Bootstrap v5. It adds a new optional simplified permission system to help speed up large (eCommerce) sites and also optional CDN library usage. This version fixes numerous issues. As always, this version supersedes all previous versions of Exponent 2.x and becomes the new baseline. DO NOT UPGRADE if your server is running PHP v5.4.x or v5.5.x! It is recommended you upgrade your server to PHP v7.3.x or later, though deprecated support for PHP v5.6.x, 7.0.x, 7.1.x, and 7.2.x still exists.
Welcome to Exponent CMS
This is the standard 'text' module which is the basic building-block for most web pages. This statement however is an example of a module description which is created using the 'Configure Settings' command on the 'chrome' module menu.
The text module below uses the 'inline editor' view which allows an admin or editor to edit the text item titles and body content directly on the page! Move the cursor over the text item titles and body content below to see an orange box appear around any editable text. Clicking in that area will activate the editor and display the editing toolbar. Clicking outside of that area will begin the save process by displaying a dialog window asking for instructions to save, cancel, or revert to saved. (This note is also in the module description and NOT a text item.)
It's one of the biggest buzzwords on the lips of IT staff and management alike. Exponent brings the power of maintaining a website into the hands of non-technical people. With point-and-click ease, updating your site has never been easier!
Point and Click Ease
With minimal computer skills, you can securely login to your website anytime, anywhere, and update your site as easily as sending email. With Exponent's advanced content editor, you can effortlessly create content, or cut and paste from almost any source, including PDFs and Word documents.
Unlike most content management systems, Exponent allows for complete design flexibility. Virtually any web layout can be integrated as an Exponent site. The system has been conceived and implemented based on strict data and design separation, which allows for virtually limitless designs. All module-based content utilizes design 'views', which can be created easily and dropped into place for use.
Dynamic Navigation and Content
Site structure can be created on-the-fly in the browser, in just seconds. Specialized modules provide the means to manage specific types of content, like Calendar events and News postings. All content editing is done 'inline', which means there is no need for a separate, back-end interface. Simply surf to the content you want to maintain and start editing!
Robust User Management
IT staff and managers can delegate site maintenance duties to any number of staff members, through user and group permissions. Permissions can be set as restrictively or permissively as needed.
Features in Exponent
Not only is this is the second individual text item in this text module, but the modules in the sidebar are populated by data on various other pages through module aggregation. They are displaying the same items, but using different views and settings.
You'll also find a module using the 'tags' feature by visiting the My News and My Blog pages and a module using the 'categories' feature by visiting the My Links and Other Cool Modules/File Downloads pages.
