Terminalfour: 8.3.6

September 8 2020

This version brings us back to focus on our ever-present goals of performance and user experience improvements. Some of the improvements you might be interested in: User experience Clickable breadcrumbs in Sections - RDSM-31989 We've improved user flow by  This should improve navigation and reduce clicks especially when you are multiple levels down in the Site Structure. Bulk deleting Mirrored Content Items - RDSM-29646 Up to now, bulk deleting Mirrored Content Items was, how shall we say? Tricky. That's because there are a few things to consider like whether you have links to that Content Item, or whether it was the original or the Mirrored Content Item you want to see the back of. In this release, .  Add media button only for those with rights - RDSM-20795 We now only show the "Add media" button to users who can actually add media. Previously all Users, even those without the correct rights, could see the button though they couldn't actually add media if they clicked it.  Performance Performance in reports - RDSM-28950 On a large scale, we saw that reports could have a negative impact on system performance by eating up too much memory and slowing things down. We've reviewed how reports are stored in memory and made adjustments to make better use of caching and garbage collection to improve how they perform. You should now see improvements to reports for broken links as well as Page Layout and Navigation usage. Content Type usage reports - RDSM-28710 On top of a review of reports overall, we also focused on Content Type usage reports and slimmed down the amount of unnecessary data returned in report creation. Cleaning up that overhead has lead to huge performance improvements with test results coming back at a fraction of previous durations e.g., 30 seconds down to 3 seconds on a large install. Other bugs of interest As usual, this release includes a number of "business as usual" fixes. Some of the ones that may be of interest to you are: Forgot password - RDSM-31501 We've had reports recently on issues with the forgotten password functionality so we picked it, brushed it off, and got it on its feet once again. No need to worry now if you've forgotten your Terminalfour password, we've got your back. Publish reports are back - RDSM-31138 For those of you who study how your publishes are performing you'll be delighted to hear that publish reports are populated again. While we were rummaging around in there we also took a look at getting some small performance gains too – if you make use of 'page created date' you should see a performance gain in your publish. Updated Content Type names not reflected in reports - RDSM-21819 A source of annoyance for some has been old Content Type names appearing in usage reports. We've all enough to be thinking about these days without having to match old Content Type names with current ones so we've rectified that. Whatever the current name of the Content Type is will show in the reports.  Paragraph field in forms is too short - RDSM-32230 We received feedback that the paragraph field on forms was too short to give important information to form users. We've increased that limit now to 1000 characters instead of 256.
