WordPress 4.4.2 Security Update


Vor ein paar Stunden ist ein neues Wartungs- und Sicherheitsupdate erschienen, und offenbar (meint mein Maileingang) läuft der automatische Roll-Out auch schon und auch bei älteren Versionen.

This is a security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

WordPress versions 4.4.1 and earlier are affected by two security issues: a possible SSRF for certain local URIs […]
In addition to the security issues above, WordPress 4.4.2 fixes 17 bugs from 4.4 and 4.4.1. For more information, see the release notes or consult the

WordPress 4.4.1 Security Update


Ein Update für die kürzlich erschienene 4.4er Version ist erschienen

WordPress 4.4.1 is now available. This is a security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately. WordPress versions 4.4 and earlier are affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability that could allow a site to be compromised.

Husch, husch, ran an den Aktualisierungsspeck.

WordPress 4.4 ist da


Say hello to „Clifford“ – die neueste Version des Blogmotors, der sich als Contentmanagementsystem tarnt, ist erschienen und seit ein paar Minuten auch in der Bloghütte am werkeln.

Neuer heisser Scheiss wie Responsive Images, eine Rest API und damit verbundene Query-Optimierungen, ausserdem ein neues Standard-Theme… ich habe noch nicht alles gelesen, aber das klingt schon ziemlich cool, was da im WP-Blog berichtet wird

WordPress 4.3 ist erschienen


Say hello to Billie

WordPress 4.2.4 Security Update


Vor vier Tage wurde ein Sicherheitsupdate des Blogmotors veröffentlicht, und weil das mittlerweile bei den meisten WP Installationen hier im Bloghüttenhaushalt automatisch im Hintergrund passiert, wäre mir fast durchgerutscht, darauf hinzuweisen, sorry.

This release addresses six issues, including three cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and a potential SQL injection that could be used to compromise a site, which were discovered by Marc-Alexandre Montpas of Sucuri, Helen Hou-Sandí of the WordPress security team, Netanel Rubin of Check Point, and Ivan Grigorov. It also includes a fix for a potential timing side-channel attack, discovered by Johannes Schmitt of Scrutinizer, and prevents an attacker

WordPress 4.2.2 Security Update

Und schon wieder gibt es ein Sicherheitsupdate für WordPress:

WordPress 4.2.2 is now available. This is a critical security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

Die WP Entwickler sind echt fleissig, und dank des Auto-Updates muss man, sofern aktiviert, auch gar nicht mehr selbst runter in den Keller… aber nachschauen und kontrollieren, ob noch alles läuft, muss man halt trotzdem. Hoffentlich halten die Backups im Fall der Fälle. Ihr macht doch regelmässig Backups, gell.

TYPO3 6.2 content image in Typoscript

Here are a few lines of TypoScript code that really took me a long time to get to.

In TYPO3 4.x, I would fetch an image which is inserted on a certain page as a normal content element (CE) and use it for example as an site wide header image.
In this example, the image in question is located in the backend column ‚left‘ (id 1) on the root page of the site, the PID of that page is stored in a TS-variable {$home_dir}, since I change it further down the page tree via TS-constants.
TYPO3 4.x
temp.headerimg < styles.content.getLeft
temp.headerimg {

TYPO3 sys_category bug after upgrade from 6.1 to 6.2

After a recent update from TYPO3 6.1 to 6.2 on a site that makes use of the new sys_category function, I noticed a strange behaviour:

Even though categories were shown in the front end and, if viewed with the list tool in the backend, also showed as defined, they were not selected on their according pages.

In page-edit view, the pages would not have their categories attached – none of the categories were checked. But the correct categories were shown on these pages in the front end.

Back in the list view of the categories, a click on info on a …

Notes from the trench: Updating a TYPO3 4.5 installation to version 6.2

What is this about?
Currently I’m in the process of updating a fairly simple website from the now outdated „Long Time Version“ 4.5 to it’s successor, 6.2.
Since I consider myself as not-the-top-notch-but-not-so-dumb kind of TYPO3 maintainer, and I ran in some issues that surprised me (and I didn’t find answers right away), maybe someone will find this useful. I try to document my plans, how it went and what errors on my or other sides occurred
1. Going local
Since the update is announced as non-trivial, I thought it best to create a local test version. I tar-ed the live …
