Knowledge Base


Date Released:
January 4 2017


This release includes an improvement of the text in the tooltips and placeholders within the user interface. In addition, there was a focus on fixing issues relating to Form Builder, Navigation, Preview / Publish and TinyMCE.

 Some of the more popular fixes in this release are:


Data Object

Data object never times out when reading an rss feed


Google Site Map Generator

Changesets aren't created for the files it creates



TinyMCE: Invalid json in media attributes causes tinymce to not load


Media Library

Editing media variants sets them as pending


 The highlight of this release is the new Form builder submissions report which offers improved listing and filtering of Form submissions, helping you to evaluate the effectiveness of the form.

Information includes the total number of submissions for the form, a graph that shows the date range of the submissions. For each submission data includes date of submission, IP address of the person submitting the form and each form field value. The listing of submissions can also be downloaded to a text file for use in excel.

The select box library (Select2) we use has also been upgraded from V3 to V4. This may result in nuances in the way select boxes work.
