We have been working very hard recently at putting the final touches on our new searchable knowledgebase, and we're proud to say it is now available for all members to use!

We are excited to announce the immediate availability of Vertex 3.6 for Joomla 3.X! This new version fixes several bugs and adds several bits of new functionality to Vertex. Please be sure to read through the major changes listed below. To upgrade your Vertex installation please be sure to download the patch from:
And please follow the upgrade patch tutorials from here:
There are two major additions in Vertex 3.6:
1. Mobile devices can now pick from one of two layout options. The first option is the drop down method that we have used with responsive Vertex templates for a while now. The second option is new, and combine the search, login, register, menu and two module positions into a mobile sidebar. Both options come loaded with customization features.
2. Due to popular request we have also added a feature that allows you to turn off the login or register icons on mobile devices, but leave them enabled for desktop users.
Our members can rest assured that our server is not and has never been affected by the popular heart bleed vulnerability. The Heart Beat extension for OpenSSL has never been enabled or installed on our server due to the version of OpenSSL that our server runs.
If you would like to check your site for this vulnerability a free tool is available through the link below. If your site is shown as vulnerable you should contact your hosting provider immediately:
Joomla 3.3 will be released next month with some exciting new features and Joomla is claiming it will be the most stable Joomla platform ever! As beta releases become available we will test Joomla 3.3 on our products as we have done with previous editions of Joomla. As of now we see no issues that will affect our products.
Many of the new features will include security fixes, backend updates, cloud storage API's and much more. You can read more about the update from here.
One of the biggest changes in 3.3 is the conversion of mootools to jquery. We want to ensure our customers that you have absolutely nothing to worry about here with our products. We predicted this changeover when Joomla 3.0 was first introduced with jquery, and we converted all of our mootools scripts over to jquery at that time rather than waiting until now. All of our Joomla 3 products have always been running jquery and do not include mootools at all.
We have recently evaluated our current pricing structure of memberships and we have decided to make some minor changes that will come into effect on May 1st, 2014. Our goal is and has always been to provide the best website products possible at a valuable price to our members. We have done extensive research by examining the price structure of many competitors and we feel that our prices will still remain very competitive and remain the best value for your money!
1. Our $49.99 membership will remain unchanged. This membership is a great value for anyone looking for just one product.
2. Our $79.99 membership will continue to allow for 3 domains and will increase by only $10 to a new total of $89.99.
