Download Contensis

Contensis 11.1.1.93

  • 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.
    • Fixed an issue where logging in via AD FS as a new user could cause high CPU load if you have a large number of groups in Contensis.
  • Bug

    Hyperlinks

    We have fixed an issue where changing the URL of a hyperlink content type would not reflect in menus on a published site. Prior to this fix, menus would only update when a subsequent page or document was published.

  • Bug

    Razor view caching

    Fixed an issue where previewing a Razor view from Contensis would not always show the changes immediately.

  • Bug

    Send to a friend

    The reCAPTCHA functionality has been updated to use version 2 of the Google reCAPTCHA API as version 1 has been phased out.

Contensis 11.1.1.82

  • Update

    Error logs

    We've reduced some unnecessary noise produced by temporary SQL logging in the log viewer.

  • Update

    Installer

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

  • Bug

    Content owner

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

  • Bug

    Content types and entries

    We've fixed an issue that prevented the content types and entries screens opening correctly on instances with many projects.

  • Bug

    Delivery API Search - StartsWith

    We've resolved an issue where a search query using StartsWith was returning unexpected results.

  • Bug

    Dual view / track changes

    We've fixed an issue that prevented the use of dual view and track changes when an inline SVG was being used in a page.

  • Bug

    Email link encoding

    We've fixed an issue where some email clients would cut off an email address where an ampersand is present. We now URL encode the ampersand which has greater support across clients.

  • 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

    Monaco editor - context menu styling

    We've fixed an issue where the styling of the context menu in the Monaco editor made it difficult to use.

  • Bug

    Parallel publishing of projects

    We've fixed an issue that could result in SQL deadlocks when publishing projects in parallel

  • Bug

    Publishing

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

  • Bug

    System maintenance

    We've resolved an issue where the system maintenance scan would fail to complete on a nightly basis when the audit trail had significant volumes of data.

  • 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 11.1.1.64

  • Update

    Localisation editor performance

    We've made improvements to the localisation editor to increase performance.

  • Bug

    Cached image handler quality

    We've made changes to improve the quality of images generated by the cached image handler.

  • Bug

    Contensis login - front end websites

    We've fixed an issue relating to logging in behaviour on front end websites. We've now prevented the username from being pre-filled server side for users logging back in.

  • 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 types and entries button

    We've fixed an issue affecting visibility of the content types and entries button in the sidebar of the Contensis interface.

  • Bug

    Editor stylesheet

    We've fixed an issue where in some instances editor stylesheets were being rendered in web pages.

    In Contensis, a stylesheet assigned with a media type of 'Editor' should only render in the Contensis editor, and not be published out to the rendered site.

  • Bug

    Entries - asset fields

    We've fixed an issue that prevented the removal or replacement of images from asset fields. 

  • Bug

    Entries - editing

    We've fixed an issue that prevented the editing of some entries by a user.

    This arose as a result of changing the workflow type for the content type when entries had already been created from it. 

  • Bug

    Entries - publishing

    We've fixed an issue that arose when a user attempted to publish an entry.

    When the publish button was clicked, the system would sometimes display an error message stating 'Unspecified Error - The entry variation is not the latest version'

  • Bug

    Management API

    We've fixed an issue where the wrong URI was being returned in the JSON for entries in the management API. The uri included reference to 'delivery' instead of 'management'. 

  • Bug

    Unpublish permission

    We've fixed an issue where Unpublish was shown in the actions menu even for users who didn't have the unpublish permission. 

  • Bug

    Web.config

    We've fixed an issue to ensure the debug level is set correctly, and there is no mention of diagnostics in the web.config file for publishing servers.

Contensis 11.1.1.49

  • 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

    AD login

    We've fixed an issue, where for a particular instance, AD users of that system were unable to login after upgrade of Contensis from v10 to v11. 

  • Bug

    ADFS login

    We've fixed an issue with ADFS/Azure login where users experienced a delay on the first login attempt. This has now been resolved.

  • Bug

    Aliases

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

  • Bug

    Components

    We've fixed an issue that affected repeatable components, where any changes made to existing content were not registered as a change in an entry. This prevented any updates.

  • Bug

    Composers

    Fixed an issue where content disappeared after re-ordering fields within a composer field.

  • Bug

    Content types

    We've fixed an issue with the image selector in entries, where it failed to work correctly when an image folder path was specified in the content type and a keyword search was performed at entry level.

  • Bug

    Entries - save functionality when adding multiple component fields.

    We've fixed an issue that occurred when a user added multiple component fields to an entry. Initially the changes would save as expected. However, if the entry was re-edited, and a change was then made to a field within a component area, the save button would fail to highlight, preventing the user from saving the change.  

  • Bug

    Entries - table editor

    We've fixed an issue that occurred when working with a table editor in an entry. The table editor toolbar wasn't tied to the table and would follow when scrolling. 

  • 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 viewer

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

  • Bug

    Logs

    Fixed an issue where logs were being created for invalid links in GenericPublishableItems. This should not have been the case.

  • Bug

    Populo

    We've fixed an issue that arose when using Populo - the current location IP was being returned as the internal load balancer IP address, which was incorrect.

  • 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.

  • Bug

    Taxonomies

    We've fixed an issue where taxonomy nodes weren't being resolved when using the list method in the .Net delivery API.

  • Bug

    Taxonomies - invalid nodes

    We've fixed an issue that arose if a taxonomy node was invalid or couldn't be found which then returned an incorrect message - 'Unable to find localised value for taxonomy key XYZ'.

    The string will now be empty, and the issue logged.

  • Bug

    WebDav

    We've fixed an issue where WebDav failed to open C# / VB file types. These file types are now editable.

Contensis 11.1.1.38

  • 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

    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

    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.
