A Falling Hearths effect for Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day (Febrary 14th) is approaching and you want to beautify your website for that event? Well, if you previously used and appreciated the snow effect introduced by TOWeb version 8.06 then you will probably want to give a try to the new falling hearth animation over the content of your pages !
Which PHP version to choose for your site
Version 5 of PHP is no longer maintained since January 1, 2019 which means it has not been updated for more than a year now.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.
Version 8.07 is released
This update brings improvements to the CSS editor for multilingual websites as well as several fixes in particular regarding the social buttons, the display of the cookie consent banner and the management of the <head> section of the catalogue products.
