 Display a popup message on your site

TOWeb popup script
During major changes in your activity or your website (and especially this current period of COVID-19 crisis) it is important to immediately inform your visitors about your situation as soon as they return to your web pages. Displaying your information in a popup window over your page, either automatically or via a button, can be the ideal solution for your visitors but also for you and even more if you do not want your notification message to affect the SEO of your site.

 Version 8.10 is released

 Which PHP version to choose for your site

PHP 7

Version 5 of PHP is no longer maintained since January 1, 2019 which means it has not been updated for more than a year now. Knowing that security flaws are regularly discovered in old versions of PHP, for more security, durability and not leaving your site obsolete or vulnerable, we recommend to use a recent version of PHP (7.2 or 7.3). Regarding the i-services scripts integrated in TOWeb, we also recommend PHP 7 but only with TOWeb V8. If you use an old version of TOWeb, then you will have to keep and stay with your current version of PHP in order for your website to continue working properly.

How to know the PHP version used by your site

 Version 8.07 is released
