    • Theme Selection: Added a new dropdown for users to be able to select a new theme for specific pages when there has been one created

    • SEO Meta Data: Additional MetaData tags have been added to further improve Search Engine Optimization while allowing Website Administrators to customize what data is displayed when the page is shared to social media platforms.

      • OG Title - Used by Social Media to determine the title of the page when shared

      • Twitter Site - Links a content page to a specific twitter page like for the business or organization when shared to social media

UI/UX Updates

  • CMS Dashboard: Improved notifications to make them stand out more, while also making them more uniform in size and style

  • Website Settings: The User Interface has been updated to be more user-friendly.

  • CMS License now uses colored labels to warn Website Administrators when subscriptions need to be renewed or when they have expired.

  • APIs: The interface has been updated so that each section of the APIs tab is now contained within individual modals rather than all fields being visible when the tab loads.  APIs are now grouped by vendor.

Security Improvements

  • Added CSRF Protection to Login Form for Password Protected Pages to prevent cross-site request forgery attacks.

  • Added limit on login attempts to Login Form for Password Protected Pages to prevent password guessing attacks.

Bug Fixes

  • Settings > Shortcut Links: Previously when shortcut links were appended with variables often automatically added when sharing from a social media platform, the shortcut link redirected to the /error page instead of the correct URL. This has been fixed so that the website now properly filters out the appended variables when determining where the shortcut link should redirect to.

  • Pages: 

    • Previously there was a bug in the Add/Edit Page form where the sitemap toggle would not toggle properly. This has been fixed so now the toggle cycles properly.

    • Previously there was a bug when adding a new page Website Administrators could not select a Private User Group. This has been fixed so now the private group dropdown will open when adding a content page.

  • PlasmaDrive: 

    • Previously in the PlasmaDrive not all top level categories were displaying when a user went to Add or Edit a Category. This has been resolved so that all top level categories are now properly showing.

    • Previously there was a bug in the Add/Edit category modal in the PlasmaDrive where the categories would not be properly assigned to their parents and would no longer show in the module. This has been resolved so that the modal works as intended.

  • Image Crop Tool: Previously there was a Bug when uploading a transparent PNG for the OG Image field via the image crop tool where the transparency was being filled with Black. This has been resolved so that PNG’s will now properly maintain their transparency.
