Blesta 3.4: Now Available

December 29, 2014 | Posted by Paul


Three.Four is here and it includes a lot of great new features.

We have been working hard on 3.4 and it’s now available. If you haven’t purchased yet, now is a great time to buy. New features, and a promo until the end of the year; All owned license purchases get a free addon company (We’ll add it for you within 24 hours of license purchase). This offer expires on Dec 31, 2014, just a few short days away, so be sure to take advantage of it right now.

Download 3.4

See the documentation for details on how to install or upgrade.


What’s new in 3.4?


  • Knowledge Base
  • Contact Logins w/Permissions
  • Two-Factor Auth for Clients & Contacts

And more, see the changelog!

If you are upgrading and plan to use the Knowledge Base, you’ll need to add the proper markup to the portal under Settings > Company > Plugins by clicking the “Manage” button for the Portal plugin. Look for the code that displays the ticket system, and replace it with the following:


    {% if plugins.support_manager.enabled %}<div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6 portal-box">
        <a href="{client_url}plugin/support_manager/client_tickets/add/">
            <div class="well">
                <i class="fa fa-ticket fa-4x"></i>
                <h4>Support</h4>
                <p>Looking for help? You can open a trouble ticket here.</p>
            </div>
        </a>
    </div>
	<div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6 portal-box">
        <a href="{client_url}plugin/support_manager/knowledgebase/">
            <div class="well">
                <i class="fa fa-info fa-4x"></i>
                <h4>Knowledge Base</h4>
                <p>Have a question? Search the knowledge base for an answer.</p>
            </div>
        </a>
    </div>{% endif %}

If upgrading, we suggest enabling a new security feature for Staff Groups that log out Staff if their IP address changes, preventing a possible attacker from using a stolen cookie. This is the default option for new installations, but must be enabled for existing Staff groups if upgrading. To enable, visit Settings > System > Staff > Staff Groups, edit the staff groups and check the “Log Out On IP Address Change” box, then log out and log back in. Thanks to Rack911 for the suggestion.


What’s next?


We have the following features planned for 3.5:

  • Upgrades/Downgrades for Configurable Options
  • SolusVM Improvements
  • And..? Stay tuned.

We do our best to prioritize development based on demand. Is there a feature you really want to see in a future release? Let us know on our feature requests forum!

After 3.5 will most likely come 4.0. 4.0 will raise the minimum PHP requirement to PHP 5.3. It’s not good to run PHP versions that are EOL, so be sure to upgrade if you haven’t already. We recommend PHP 5.5.

The entire Blesta team wishes you a very prosperous 2015!
