Download Contensis

Contensis 10.1.1.150

  • Bug

    ADFS login

    Fixed an issue where logging into a published website using AD FS would append additional question marks in the query string. This would result in the page not loading.

Contensis 10.1.1.146

  • Update

    Installer

    We've reduced the size of our installer by removing some redundant third party installers that were previously required.

  • Update

    Populo - storing IP addresses

    We no longer store the IP address of a Populo contact once the location has been determined.

  • Bug

    Contensis upgrade - placeholder data

    We've fixed an issue relating to Contensis upgrades in cases where there was partially deleted placeholder data.

    This occurred when nested sub templates were deleted from page templates, and the changes were saved but not approved. The content modification service incorrectly removed content from the published web pages.

  • Bug

    Content owner

    We've fixed an issue where the content owner was not set correctly on synchronised folders.

  • Bug

    Logs - thumbnail generation error

    We've fixed an issue where an unnecessary log was being generated because the resolved URL for a thumbnail image was http instead of https.

  • Bug

    Publishing

    We have fixed an issue where publishing would be slow in certain instances due to a recently introduced parser change.

  • Bug

    Template switching tool - default content

    We've fixed an issue where default content was being removed from placeholders even though they had no mapping applied.

Contensis 10.1.1.128

  • Bug

    AD FS login using Internet Explorer / Microsoft Edge

    We've fixed an issue where users continued to see the Contensis login dialogue even after clicking the remember password option.

    A fix has been applied so that if the remember password option is ticked, it will not show for 30 days (in line with non ADFS/Azure AD Contensis logins)

  • Bug

    Aliases

    We have fixed an issue where aliases were working on an intermittent basis.  

  • Bug

    Forms confirmation email message

    We've fixed an issue where the forms confirmation email made reference to a forms ID instead of the data for the field.

  • Bug

    Log in when using responsive preview

    We've fixed an issue where an unsafe scripts warning was generated when attempting to login using standard or AD logins from a responsive preview screen.

  • Bug

    Log viewer

    We've fixed an issue where an undefined error pop up message would appear if searching for an invalid log id.

  • Bug

    Tables

    We've fixed an issue relating to tables containing merged header cells. The markup of the table would initially show as colspan/rowspan for the merged cells. However, if rowgroup/colgroup was added to the cells, then colspan/rowspan would be removed.

Contensis 10.1.1.119

  • 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

    Deleted entries appearing on published sites

    We've fixed an issue whereby deleted folder content would fail to be removed from Elasticsearch meaning that it continued to show on your published site

  • 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

    Metadata definitions

    We've fixed an issue where metadata definitions that were assigned to folders were not being deleted from the database when the folder had been deleted from the recycle bin.

  • Bug

    Related Items

    We've fixed an issue caused by exceptions being thrown when retrieving relationships from the WebCache at the same time as the cache was being refreshed.

  • Bug

    Structured content

    We've fixed an issue where structured content reverted back to previous dates in cases where a release schedule had been set and the file was subsequently opened as read-only.

  • Bug

    Varnish cache

    We've fixed an issue where changes made to entries were not being reflected in the varnish cache.

Contensis 10.1.1.111

  • Bug

    Database replication service

    We've fixed an issue where the database replication service would fail if the CMS database password contained an equals character.

  • Bug

    Global user group assignment to projects

    We've fixed an issue where newly assigned global user groups would not be visible when first assigned to a project. The application cache previously had to be reset to resolve this.

  • Bug

    We've fixed an issue where an unnecessary log was being generated because the resolved URL for a thumbnail image was http instead of https.

  • Bug

    Published site diagnostic scan

  • Bug

    Renaming or moving files in the 'App_Code' folder area

    We've fixed an issue where renaming or moving C# or VB files within the App_Code folder created duplicates in some instances. This had the potential to cause compilation issues, resulting in sites failing to start up.

    Relationships

    Fixed an issue relating to the order of publishing for the relationships XML file when adding or re-ordering related items, ensuring any changes are published correctly.

10.1.1.80

  • Update

    Content types & entries

    We've updated the pattern validation on entry fields to cater for null values entered into non-required fields. Previously, users would see a message stating 'The input does not match the expected pattern. Please edit and try again.' when the field was left empty and the user saved the entry.

  • Bug

    Azure active directory

    Fixed an issue ensuring that Azure AD users are mapped correctly to local users and have the correct integration information. 

  • Bug
