5.3.9 and Pro 2.3.4 – Update Now!

Posted on April 21, 2013

A few days after the most recent updates, we came across a couple of issues on both the Main/Free plugin and Pro add-on that required a quick fix and release of stable versions.

The most important fix is within Events Manager 5.3.9 which consists of closing a potential XSS vulnerability in the event search forms. Therefore, if you are using template files, we strongly suggest you take a look at the html change in the search box itself and move those over to your modifications.

The Pro version update is for a bug that cropped up in one of the recent updates due to the introduction of our Multiple Bookings beta feature, concerning the Form Editor and being able to switch between custom-created forms.
