ClassicPress 1.3.1 Release Notes

This is no longer the latest release of ClassicPress!
You can find the latest release at the top of the Release Notes subforum.

We’re happy to announce the release of ClassicPress 1.3.1. This is a small bugfix release while we are also preparing for the larger 1.4.0 release.

If your ClassicPress site has automatic updates enabled (the default configuration), then the new version will be installed automatically. Otherwise, you can upgrade your site(s) to 1.3.1 as you have time.

Bugs fixed since 1.3.0

  • Remove an expired Let’s Encrypt certificate from the list of certificates that ClassicPress maintains (#814, thanks to WP contributors who originally submitted this change there). This helps resolve issues with ClassicPress sites being unable to communicate with the ClassicPress update server, but in some cases, server configuration changes are also needed.

    This is a complex issue, so we have also released a plugin that can help you to diagnose and fix problems with your site’s server configuration related to this issue. If you cannot see the 1.3.1 update from your site’s dashboard after going to Dashboard > Updates and clicking the Check Again button, then we recommend installing this plugin:

  • Fix duplicated sections in media modal (#801, thanks @MattyRob). This was a cosmetic issue that was accidentally introduced along with one of the changes for version 1.3.0.

  • Avoid notices when readding removed meta box in PHP 7.4 (#778, thanks @MattyRob). This fixes a remaining infrequent issue with PHP 7.4 compatibility (possible, but unlikely to be seen on production sites).
