What is the latest secure version of ElcomCMS?
elcomCMS 10.5 — Features Update
elcomCMS version 10.5 is a major release that marks a new direction for the platform. Most notably — and right after a massive website redesign — the company is dropping the often troublesome moniker of "elcomCMS." Now, the platform is just being referred to as the much more simple, "Elcom." (For anyone who has ever struggled with putting "elcomCMS" at the start of a sentence, yet still tries to maintain brand style guidelines, you know this pain.)
Like many proprietary, walled platforms, Elcom guards their updates with a vigor. It is extremely difficult to find information on even the most minor maintenance updates (unlike a platform like WordPress, which gives detailed release notes for every update and makes them easy to find.)
So when Elcom does post information about an update, you know it's one they want to go out of their way to emphasize. Such is the case with Elcom 10.5, which has a host of new and expanded features.
Elcom 10.5 includes:
- Team Workspaces — Work better and faster together
- LivePages — Simplify and streamline collaboration
- Social — Communicate, empower and engage
- Personalized Newsletters Module — Tailor content and drive results
- IP Geo Location Module — Localize and convert
- Ecwid Connector — Fast setup and seamless e-commerce experience
- Events Module — Run complex events efficiently
- Training Manager — Deliver personalized online learning
- Form Designer — Quickly and intuitively build forms
- Form Creator — Easily and effectively capture data
- Page Layout Designer (Zones) — Design beautiful and streamlined pages
- Dynamic Widget Enhancements — Aggregate and display content fast
- Extensibility Points — Scale and extend your site without limits
- Structured Authoring Enhancements — Create uniform content without the fuss
- Tracking Management — Seamlessly track, manage and resolve
- Subscription Notifications — Always stay in the know
