Terminalfour: 8.3.11

Date Released:
November 11 2021


As well as a slew of product refinements this version of Terminalfour features two significant changes:

  • List Re-ordering 
  • Support for Oracle 19

List re-ordering 


Up to now when you created a List in Terminalfour items were listed in the order they were entered and there was no way to change this. From this release, you can manually re-order List items to fit your requirements. This also fixes an inconsistency around List ordering within the system:

  • when you edited a List, the order of List Items was as entered (the order couldn’t be changed)
  • when you used a List in a Content Item, the ordering was alphabetical
  • List Items from Lists assets used in Form Builder forms were ordered as entered

From 8.3.11, all existing Lists will be ordered alphabetically to match how they appear when used in Content Items but they can be manually re-ordered to suit your needs. 

Support for Oracle 19


We’ve updated the version of Hibernate that’s used with Oracle databases so you can now use Oracle 19.

As well as List Re-ordering we’ve also made some UI enhancements:

Section Breadcrumbs are now visible when editing a Content Item


Previously, when you edited a Content Item the Section breadcrumbs that helpfully told you where you were and let you get back up to a parent Section, unhelpfully disappeared. Now, this breadcrumb is visible so you can navigate back up without bothering the back button.

Content Breadcrumb

Preview from a Section


Need to preview a Section while you’re in the Section screen? Now you no longer have to navigate back to the Site Structure or click into a Content Item because there’s a shiny new “Preview” in the Section screen.

Save and  Edit Section

When a Section is saved initially you can return to the Section screen 


Now you can choose to return back to the Section you just created rather than go to the Site Structure. There’s a new secondary option available when you first create a Section that lets you save it and then return to the Section screen instead of going to the Site Structure.

Option for a logout page to the SAML configuration screen


You can now specify the page that SAML users will see when they log out. 

Add images to HTML confirmation emails


You can now add img elements to the Form Builder confirmation email. All you need is the URL of an image to add. We’ve also extended the number of elements that you can include in the email mark-up. 

The license limit alert won’t be shown to non Admins


If you have a license limit for your instance an alert may have been shown to all users that may have caused confusion. This is now only shown to Administrators.

Fixes of note

The Content Syncer hash check is now case sensitive


If the “Link” value in your Content Sync changes case then this will be recognized.
