The WebsiteBaker project is pleased to announce the official release of the long-awaited WebsiteBaker 2.13.1. WebsiteBaker Version 2.13.0, which was released a year ago, has been extensively expanded and various reported problems have been eliminated. We encourage everyone to start planning an upgrade to WebsiteBaker 2.13.1. This release officially marks the end of further development of WebsiteBaker 2.13.0!!

Among other things, it is a security release that fixes some security vulnerabilities and contains various bug fixes and improvements.

WebsiteBaker 2.13.1 runs with PHP 7.4.28 up to and including PHP 8.0x. Some adjustments have already been made for PHP 8.1.x. We are working hard on the full customization for PHP 8.1.x

And here is an overview of changes in WebsiteBaker 2.13.1.

An optical and improved technical adjustment of the WebsiteBaker Installer should be mentioned, e.g. preventing incorrect entries.

For the frontend login, registration, user setting (profile), styles (frontend.css) and javascript (frontend.js, frontend_body.js) files are also integrated into the frontend template, as with the modules, in order to be able to adapt the design for the frontend account to your own design.

An update of the template engine Twig version to version 3.3.9 to replace the outdated and inflexible PHPLib template engine with Twig in one of the later WebsiteBaker versions.
Update CKEditor to version 4.18.0 which Security Includes

The update of the PhpMailer class to version 6.6 has brought with it some stricter configuration measures.

Advanced features in Mailer class allow to suppress SSL certificate check when this error occurs SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host (Reason invalid or missing certificates). Keep in mind that security is compromised if opting for this route of suppressing certificate validation.

The WebsiteBaker own form module has been provided with a new spam protection. The time for the spam protection to take effect can now be set individually in minutes.

The General Data Protection Regulation was also taken into account. The retention period of saved entries, if allowed to be saved at all, can be limited in days and the form module will irrevocably and automatically delete the entries from the database as soon as the backend overview page of the form module is called.

The Output_Filter also makes it easier for the user to integrate the ShortUrl Version 4 developed by Ruud. Editing via FTP is no longer necessary, the necessary short.php file is created automatically at the push of a button and can also be deleted again. The option of editing and deleting the .htaccess file is also possible via the output_filter and should only be carried out by experienced users. Using the import function, text modules can also be inserted into an existing .htaccess. The possibility of your own text modules is also provided.

Also, some droplets that are supplied by default have undergone an overhaul and adjustment to PHP 8 and will be automatically updated during the upgrade.

Also new, at the end of some password fields is a small eye icon that you can click after entering the password so that it then displays the password in plain text.

Module developers should seek help and customization information from the development team for internal core changes.
