Content Layout Versioning

RDSM-33149

Comparing versions of Page Layouts is pretty handy (not to mention an occasional lifesaver) but what about Content Layouts? Up to now, there was no easy way to compare and revert to earlier versions of Content Layouts but we've changed that in this release.

You can compare versions of Content Layouts and make one the current version from the version listing screen or the compare screen.

We've also taken the opportunity to apply the same changes to the Page Layout versioning screen as well.

Workflow emails

RDSM-33218

The feedback on the Workflow emails has been they were less than friendly and it was difficult to understand what the next step was so we've made some changes:

  • emails now include a link to the Content Item to be approved
  • a simplified layout so they should be easier to parse
  • Subject lines now include the name of the Content Item and Workflow status so they can be more easily sorted by mailbox rules

Unsaved changes alert when navigating away from a Content Item

RDSM-33054

Now if you accidentally close the tab you're editing a Content Item in, or if you hit Cancel instead of Save, you'll get an alert to prevent you from losing your work.

The "Save and edit section" option is now always available

RDSM-33235

Introduced in 8.3.11, the "Save and edit section" option only appeared when you created a Section. Now you can use it anytime so you don't have to go to the Site Structure when you save a change to a Section. 

Return to Section option when leaving Direct Edit

Now, when you leave Direct Edit you'll have the option to return to the corresponding Section rather than returning to the Site Structure. 

Data Store renamed to Content Sync

RDSM-33279

Data Source or Data Store – it was a little confusing so we've renamed the Data Store to just Content Sync. 

Deprecations

  • Kerberos authentication (RDSM-33316)
  • The Access Key (RDSM-33456)
