Sitebuilder 2.273 - 6th November 2012 - Release notes

Sitebuilder 2.273 was released on 6th November 2012. Highlights from this release include:

Forum pages in Sitebuilder


We have released a new page type in Sitebuilder which allows discussion forums to be utilised directly from within a Sitebuilder site.

These forums are intended to replace the now deprecated Warwick Forums system. It is possible to migrate your forum from Warwick Forums to Sitebuilder if you wish; please contact webteam at warwick dot ac dot uk for details.

You can create a forum page by selecting "Forum" from the page type dropdown when creating a new page or editing an existing page.

General improvements and bug fixes

  • Users no longer require Contributor permissions to post attachments on forum pages
  • A bug that caused an extra "ghost" page to appear when the last page was filled on a forum thread has been fixed
  • When adding (e.g.) Add Topic permission to a forum page, users will automatically also get view permission if they don't already have it
  • Users with "moderate" permission can now manage flagged posts on a Forum
  • It's now possible to filter on deleted columns in Formsbuilder
