SiteBuilder 2.528 released

We released SiteBuilder 2.528 on Wednesday 4th January 2023. In this version, we:

  • Fixed an issue that caused date pickers to be cut off when contained in a small pop-up. Date pickers now always appear full-size, and will overhang the pop-up if necessary.
  • Improved the speed that changes are applied when editing permissions for large numbers of pages.
  • Improved notification emails for Forms pages to include the submission ID for individual submissions, to make cross-checking of submission data easier.
  • Made the following changes and improvements to the Components Editor:
    • Updated misleading text on the confirmation button that appears after selecting Preview and confirm when converting a page with detected accessibility issues. This now reads Continue to preview and confirm. The previous version of this button gave the impression that the page would be published, rather than previewed.
    • Updated text to clarify how to add accordion components to a page. This component can be found under Add Special Features > Tabs/accordion.
    • Added the option to set a Number of tweets to show in a Twitter feed component. Note that doing so will disable the Height in pixels field, and set the component to a standard height.
    • Fixed a bug that caused copied and pasted content to display incorrectly when used to replace everything in a component.
    • Fixed an issue that prevented users from using custom text in a campus map link. Prior to this fix, map links in Components Editor pages had to use the target location's name.
