December 22, 2017

As you already know, Craft 3 RC became available recently. We have been working hard to update Freeform and Calendar to be compatible with Craft 3. A lot of things changed in Craft 3, and due to the complex nature of our plugins, it has required a great deal of time to convert them.

New home for User, Tag, Rating and Favorites

December 5, 2017

Over the years, you may have noticed that Solspace’s software offerings have evolved. We have expanded into the Craft CMS market, and we have been focusing on specializing in a smaller number of add-ons.

October 27, 2017

We were contacted by a design and dev shop who was making a pitch to a new client to use Craft CMS for a site redesign. The whole deal was gated on Craft being able to get form submission data into the client’s Microsoft Dynamics GP install. Going from PHP into Windows usually includes a little bit of death and dismemberment, but we at Solspace dig on that sort of thing. So we took the deal.
