Terminalfour: 8.3.12

Date Released:
March 7 2022


There's a refreshed HTML Editor in this release and we've also redesigned the HTML Editor configuration page. We've also made it easier to find items in the main navigation and now you can approve Content Items from the Section screen. .

Improved HTML Editor


TinyMCE 5 in 8.3.12

In 8.3.12 we’re using a new version of TinyMCE to power the HTML Editor. This brings with it a number of enhancements including:

  • redesigned and cleaner UI
  • improved copy and paste from third-party sources like Word and Google docs
  • improved copying and pasting of links from other HTML Editor instances 
  • improved editing of Media Attributes in Media Layouts 
  • enhanced table creation and editing 

In addition, we’ve also addressed a number of bugs and annoyances that were hanging around.

Redesigned HTML Editor configuration page


TinyMCE Configuration in 8.3.12

We've redesigned the HTML Editor configuration screen to make it easier to use. 

Content Approval from the Section Screen


Approve Content Item

You can now approve a Pending Content Item directly from “Actions” menu in the Section screen. 

Navigation Menu Filtering 


8.3.12 Navigation Filtering

Can’t remember where a menu item is? No problem. You can now filter by item name. 

It's now easier to add items to multi-select Lists


They may be called Multi-select Lists but adding more than one item at a time to a was more difficult than it needed to be. Now it’s easier so you can hold down Shift or Ctrl and add multiple items. 

More informative Email Integration page


Previously, when you clicked on the “Email Integration” link on the main navigation, you were sent directly to T4 Mailer whether you had an account or not. Now there’s some information about what T4Mailer is. 

Improved weak password checking


If users log in with a Terminalfour account weak password checking is now enabled by default. We’ve also improved the password checking criteria too.   

Deprecated: Fetching Grandchild Sections With The Related Content Navigation Object


We’ve deprecated fetching Grandchild Sections with the Related Content Navigation Object. If any of your Nav Objects are using it you’ll get an alert and any of the Navigation Objects that are using it will be highlighted.

Removed: Support for IE 11


Microsoft stopped supporting IE 11 on their 365 apps since August 2021 so, to follow suit, we've also ceased support. 

Removed: "Mobile Integration" option in Navigation


The item "Mobile Integration" available under Sites & Channels > Mobile Integration has been removed from the left-hand navigation.
