Terminalfour: 8.3.10

Date Released:
July 15 2021


This release brings some big changes and useful refinements.

New login-screen

New login screen

It's been a while since Terminalfour was rebranded, so it's about time that the product reflected it. We've designed a shiny new log-in screen. We hope you like it. The login screen now shows the current version number, so you don't have to go digging in the About screen to see if you're due an upgrade. We've also added the new logo to the top navigation as well. 

Social Poster functionality 

The APIs for the social networks that Social Poster works with changed some time ago. That caused the feature to break. We've updated the integration, so it works as intended, and we'll be keeping an eye out to make sure that the next time there's an API change, we can resolve it sooner.  

Form Builder mail customization 

You might already know that when you add an email field to a form in Form Builder, you can choose to send a confirmation email to that submitted address. This is useful if you want the person who fills out the form to receive confirmation that their submission has been received.

From this version, you can customize the message that appears at the top of this mail. You can also add some HTML too. We've also improved the styling of the submission if a copy of it is included in the mail. 

Media Item delete alert

Want to delete a Media Item but worried it could be used somewhere you hadn't thought? Worry no more. Now you'll get an alert listing all locations where the Media Item is being used.

Content Type name now links in Sections

Ever been in a Section and wanted to edit the Content Type associated with a Content Item? Previously you may have opened a new tab, but now you can click the Content Type name and go straight there.

Floating T4 Tag button

If you've ever edited a long Page or Content Layout and wanted to add T4 Tags, you've probably spent your fair share of time scrolling down to the button and back up again. We've now added a floating T4 Tag button that will be accessible wherever you need it.

Fixes Of Note 

The order of Content Element Types has been improved  (RDSM-31787)

When adding a Content Element to a Content Type, the list of Element Types is now ordered by type. Previously they were listed randomly so it required a good bit of scrolling to find the one you need.

When there's just one Language, you won't see Language options (RDSM-32661)

When just one Language is used, we've removed the Language options. This means that users won’t be confronted with redundant language options that they don't need.
