wordpress

Dear readers and customers,

on August 11 WordPress 5.5 was released, code named Eckstine, after US Jazz musician Billy Eckstine. Being only the second major release in 2020, it brought new features such as lazy loading for graphics as well as automatic update features for plugins and themes.

As the upgrade process itself was a success and went through everywhere without much hassle as we were used to WordPress updates in the near past, using and maintaining the web projects afterwards wasn’t.

In fact, several plugins just broke and we couldn’t use the software as we were used to: hovering the main menu on the left didn’t work anymore. Our editor was missing the buttons for all tags. All in all it was a messy user experience and it just felt wrong. Plus, we didn’t know exactly what and where things broke after the update.

There are only two things you can do at the moment:

1) downgrade(!) to 5.4.x
2) install a plugin which is called Enable jQuery Migrate Helper. [via]

jquery migrate helper in action

What the latter does is check your site for outdated jQuery functions. After activation, your website/web project should function like normal. Only addition is a red coloured box which specifies outdated jQuery functions in use on your site. In our case it was constantly this one: jQuery.fn.live() is deprecated.

What we are doing now is editing the code for those plugins and themes where this error is shown. All updated code will then be found available in our WordPress plugin repository. We created this back when we migrated to PHP 7.x. It will now be updated for jQuery converted plugins as well. We are realisitic here: being in WordPress development since 2005 (15 years is a veryyy long time in WWW terms), we don’t expect some of our older plugins in use to be updated ever to run updated jQuery stuff. This is, in all its fame and glory, the “power” of OpenSource after all.

We apologise for the inconvenience if there should be any. So far on the frontend side, what you see as users, you should see no negative consequences.

Stay sharp and good luck updating to 5.5,
the aethyx staff

First of all: Happy New Year, of course!

We hope you enjoyed the few days you had and are ready for what lies ahead of you. You probably should.

We are still interested in convincing you to join us and our small & young team as a customer!

So, what we did first this year was to change our offer for your own WordPress webhosting with us. For the better. ^^

As you may have already read, we made some postings about this new adventure. Maybe this was not clear enough, which was our fault. Sorry!

Here comes the definitive brand new proposal for you, you certainly won’t regret it:

===THE AETHYX.COM WORDPRESS WEBHOSTING PACKAGE===

* 1 domain name of your choice for free
* 5GB webspace (NEW!)
* Unlimited traffic
* 50 Email accounts with Email-Spamfilter (NEW!)
* 10 subdomains (NEW!)
* newest version of WordPress, the state of the art CMS, preinstalled (1 MySQL database included, of course)
* choose up to 10 plugins you like from here: https://aethyx.eu/eshop/ OR choose up to ten from http://wordpress.org/plugins/. We configure anything and make them run
* installation of your own custom theme from inside your new WordPress OR choose one from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/
* installation of your own independent counter for free (see expCounter for details). If you prefer Piwik, we can install that too, but it’s more restrictive in counting visitors
* fast & reliable servers located in Germany
* servers are 100% powered from renewable energy ressources
* 1 cron job included (to be fair, not from within your webspace directory, but from your web URL) (NEW!)
* brand new SSL certificate 99€/domain per year or 159€ for 2 years OR, if you already have one, this will cost 30€/year for installation and maintaining
* but: SSL over proxy is included for free (NEW!)
* price: 5€/month (terminable to the end of any month)

As you can see, we pimped everything and you will not pay one more cent for it! 🙂 The most interesting part for you will be that the webspace alone was increased by 400%! Yay!

As already stated: This offer will end as soon as 10 new customers are found. So don’t hesitate, just drop us a line: info[at]aethyx.eu!

Stay true, stay sharp.

All the best,
the aethyx staff

If you are looking for a completely new WordPress-Webhosting-package we introduced an unique special offer last month.

Some more information, here is a little update:

* fast & reliable servers located in Germany
* servers are 100% powered from renewable energy ressources
* brand new SSL certificate 99€/domain per year or 159€ for 2 years (unfortunately, we have no control over this price)*

The domain included in this package is for a new registration. If you already have one and want to port it to us this is no problem. In this case we need to calculate a new price which will be below the 5€ per month we introduced last month.

To be fair, our special offer was for completely new authors who want to start their very first project. It needs some effort to port domains and databases and stuff, so we also need to calculate a separate price for this porting service if you are moving to us. Also keep in mind that it needs some time for ICANN to transfer domains. You won’t be able to start immediately with us, ten to 14 days should be realistic.

*In fact it is possible to install a certificate if you already have one, but keep in mind this will cost 30€/year for installation and maintaining.

Enough of this, drop us a line when you are ready to get things started: info[at]aethyx.eu!

All the best,
the aethyx staff
