What's new in Contensis

We are constantly improving Contensis by releasing new features, squashing bugs, and delivering fresh documentation. Here's what's been happening recently.

Download Contensis

Contensis 11.3.1.42

  • Bug

    Contensis installer

    When installing Contensis we now set-up the IIS site for you if it doesn't already exist. This was causing issues if you had a preexisting site called Contensis with an uppercase C. We have now updated this so regardless of what your existing site is called the installer will run successfully.

  • Bug

    Folder synchronisation

    When setting up a modifiable synchronisation, the root folder created as part of the sync wasn't copying over the folder properties permissions. The root folder now copies the folder properties permissions from the master folder, this is in line with the content type and template permissions which are already copied.

  • Bug

    Forms

    • If you added blank values to a dropdown field and saved a form, they would disappear from the forms builder so you couldn't subsequently remove them. This meant you could end up with multiple blank values on your live site. We now show the blank values in the forms builder so they can be removed.
    • When trying to access a forms attachment when not logged into the CMS you would get an error. You are now prompted for a username and password and if entered correctly the download will begin. 
  • Bug

    Image editor

    When opening images larger than the viewport in the image editor within an entry, you could end up with a vertical scroll bar present. This has now been fixed so you never see scrollbars when in the image editor.

  • Bug

    WYSIWYG editor

    If you selected an image in the WYSIWYG editor and tried to drag it within the placeholder to a new location, the image would disappear. This has now been fixed so an image can be dragged anywhere within a placeholder.

Contensis 11.3

  • New Feature

    Entry version history

    You can now view, compare, and reinstate versions of an entry. Version history is accessible via the more actions menu in the entry editor.

  • New Feature

    The new Image API provides an easier way to manage images for use on any platform or screen size. Now you can serve images that really meet the needs of the a users device, saving them time and bandwidth downloading files that are bigger than necessary.

  • New Feature

    Image cropping

    Images can now be cropped to a predefined size set by the new image dimensions property. Or a custom crop can be applied where more flexibility is required in content such as blog posts or news articles.

  • New Feature

    Image dimensions

    Its now possible to specify the dimensions of an image field in entries ensuring that the images selected by your authors meet the requirements of your content and design. When image dimensions are set on a field in your content type the image gallery will only return images that meet those requirements too.

  • New Feature

    Inline upload of images and assets

    You can now upload images and assets inline when creating entries, this saves you time and helps keep you in the flow of creating your content. To enable image and asset uploading you’ll need to enable the upload on the field in the content type builder.

    Images/assets can be:

    • Browsed for using your local file explorer
    • Dragged and dropped to the field from your computer
    • Dragged and dropped from the project explorer
  • New Feature

    System audits

    You can now see audited lists of actions in the Management console. The following audits are reported:

    • Users

  • Update

    .NET Delivery API

    Get alt text from an image field.

  • Update

    .NET Management API

    Alt text can now be specified against an image field.

  • Update

    Alt text

    We now support alt text on image fields. This is especially important now we've introduced image cropping as the original alt text may no longer be relevant to any crop that has been applied. Alt text is an optional property on the image field and can easily be toggled on and off. You can set alt text to be required ensuring that your images are always accessible.

  • Update

    Entry selection

    Its now possible to include the same entry multiple times on an entry field. This is helpful when creating step by step guides where the same content may be used in multiple steps.

  • Update

    Forms module - automatic form post deletion

    We've introduced a form setting to forms that provides a way to automatically delete form posts after a set number of days. This helps to ensure you are not holding form data longer than necessary. These settings are audited and are visible in the audit screen for each form.

    Forms module - bulk delete form posts

    You can now carry out bulk deletion of form posts in the form search results table.
