  • Update

    Forms module - GDPR

    • We now delete all associated form data when a form is deleted permanently from the recycle bin
    • Old orphaned form data is now removed on upgrade.
  • Bug

    AD FS login improvements

    • We've fixed an issue where the Contensis login screen was inadvertently being displayed even though remember my password was being set.
    • We also solved a generic issue where AD users were not able to login in certain container setups.
  • Bug

    Delivery API - Entries.List performance

    We've improved the performance of entries being returned from the Entries.List method.

  • Bug

    Entry field titles in translations

    We've fixed an issue where the titles of linked entries were not displayed in the editor when translating an entry in the split view.

  • Bug

    Forms module - confirmation email

    We've fixed an issue where the field ID of an unpopulated field was being sent in the confirmation email.

  • Bug

    Log viewer - searching by log ID

    We've fixed an issue where searching for an invalid log by ID would display an error.

  • Bug

    Monaco editor - JavaScript files

    We've fixed an issue where JavaScript files would fail to open in the code editor in Internet Explorer 11.

  • Bug

    WebDAV

    We've fixed an issue where it was not possible to open cshtml or vb files when using WebDAV.

Contensis 11.1.1.26

  • Update

    Access to the content information screen

    We have implemented a security check which means you must now be logged into Contensis in order to see the content information screen.

    In addition to this fix we have also removed the PublicUser from the everyone group as it wasn't clear that this represented anonymous users and could end up in administrators inadvertently giving access to screens within Contensis.

  • Bug

    Azure AD group membership

    We've fixed an issue relating to synchronization of users when using Azure AD. If a user was a member of a large number of groups (>100) then these would fail to get created in contensis when the user logged in. This resulted in the user only being part of the AD Users group.

  • Bug

    Deleting HTML Snippets from web pages when using Firefox browser

    We've fixed an issue that prevented content editors from deleting HTML snippets that had been added in to web page placeholders. When right clicking on the snippet, and selecting 'Delete' from the context menu, the snippet failed to delete. 

  • Bug

    Elastic search

    We've fixed an issue that occurred if a search returned more than 10,000 results, which was the maximum number previously allowed in Elastic search.

  • Bug

    Error reporting

    We've fixed an issue where an excessive amount of errors were being reported in the error logs relating to placeholders in webpages and missing taxonomy localisations.

  • Bug

    Indexing

    We've fixed an issue where entries weren't indexed into ElasticSearch.

  • Bug

    Razor views

    • We've fixed an issue that occurred when a Razor view made a call to CurrentNode which resulted in an error message being generated in certain scenarios. 
    • We've fixed an issue relating to permissions when using a Razor view as a propertied content entry picker. If a user was not a member of any role, when opening the Razor view properties they would be unable to see available entries in the selector.
  • Bug

    Roles

    • We've fixed an issue that prevented custom workflow permissions from being added to a role. 
    • We've fixed an issue where the language permissions would be automatically reset to 'no languages'. This resulted in users losing their permissions.
  • Bug

    RSS feed

    We've fixed an issue where exceptions were thrown when rendering an RSS feed.

  • Bug

    Version history - track changes

    We've fixed an issue with the track changes functionality failed where it failed to work correctly in cases where the content contained more than 10 tables.

Contensis 11.1

  • New Feature

    .NET Core Support

    The .NET Delivery and Management APIs have been updated to support .NET Core, allowing developers to create applications on any platform using content types and entries.

  • New Feature

    Copy an entry

    You can now copy an existing entry through the actions menu in the entry listing.

  • New Feature

    Limit the images and assets displayed in the gallery

    Content that is displayed in the asset gallery can now be limited - ideal if you have large image and document collections in your project. Simply choose the folders that should be displayed for a field by specifying it in the content type.

  • New Feature

    Reduce the fields returned by the Delivery API

    Developers can now limit the field data returned from the Delivery API when making a request using the search, GET and list methods. This makes it easier to interact with the data returned whilst saving bandwidth for those visiting your site. This is avaliable from the HTTP, .NET and JS APIs.

  • New Feature

    Unpublish an entry

    Removing content from your site or application is now possible using the unpublish feature. You'll need permission, but this is easily setup in the roles screen.

  • Update

    Entry editor performance

    As we've seen content types become more complex, and content models begin to expand we've revisited the entry editor with a focus on improving the performance.

    The entry editor now feels snappier to use, we've reduced the number of API calls, cache duplicate requests and lazy load the field editors as they come into view.

  • Update

    Entry filters

    Contensis now remembers the filters and searches you created the last time you were in the listings screen. This makes it easier to switch between an entry and the listing as you review large groups of content.

  • Update

    Rich text field

    Native browser spellchecking is now available in the rich text editor in content types and entries.

  • Update

    Roles builder

    You can now search for users in the roles screen by their email address.

  • Bug

    Images with required caption

    We've fixed an issue where entries created from a content type that had a required image caption, would fail to publish if an image and caption were not inserted.

  • Bug

    Minimum and maximum number validation

    We've fixed an issue where it wasn't possible to set a minimum or maximum number field validation to 0.

  • Bug

    Newly added users

    We've fixed an issue where a newly added user would not show up in the user assignment dropdown of the roles builder.

You are at the end of the updates

Many developments occurred before March 2017, but they are not logged here. Contensis 9 is the beginning of this new format for highlighting changes to Contensis, for older versions you will need to refer to the developer changelogs.
