SiteBuilder release notes

SiteBuilder 2.434 released

We released SiteBuilder 2.434 on Friday 15th May 2020. In this version:

  • We added two new page templates to the options available when you create a new page:

    • Module – to present details of a module, drawn from the Module Catalogue.

    • Multiple Researcher Profiles - to display the combined publications and research projects of two or more researchers, drawn from the IDEATE system.

  • Pop-ups throughout SiteBuilder, such as the one you see when you make a booking on a bookings page, are now more accessible. They are visible to screen reader software and can be navigated using only a keyboard.

  • Notifications now work for 'News filter' and 'Calendar filter' pages drawing content directly from a news or calendar page. When a new item is added to the news or calendar page, users signed up for notifications on the filter page receive an email. This applies if the new item is tagged with at least one of the tags used for the filter page.

  • We did some work on forms:

    • Payment forms now include an ‘Intended Payment’ column when you view submissions. In the event of an unsuccessful payment, the intended payment amount is shown here.

    • In a form’s properties, text you enter in the 'Message' box, to show to users when they've submitted the form, is now checked. If the text, plus accompanying HTML, is over 2000 characters long you see a warning about this and must reduce the length. Previously, including more than 2000 characters caused an error.

    • When you specify that a link within a comment on a form should open in a new window, this now works. Previously, the HTML to achieve this was removed by the visual editor.

SiteBuilder 2.431 released

We released SiteBuilder 2.431 on Friday 13th March 2020. In this version:

  • We fixed a couple of bugs affecting the date picker on resource booking pages. When booking a resource that allows bookings up to 20:00, for example, you can now choose that as the end time of your booking. The date picker to choose which date you want to view bookings for is also working again.

SiteBuilder 2.430 released

We released SiteBuilder 2.430 on Friday 13th March 2020. In this version:

  • A prototype 'page audit' tool, which checks for accessibility issues on your page, is now available in the visual editor toolbar. Automatic checkers are unable to detect all accessibility issues. You should therefore also refer to the accessibility checklist. In preparation for this tool, we addressed some accessibility issues in SiteBuilder.
  • We fixed an issue that prevented changes to the visual editor appearing for users in some cases. Previously, if a user's web browser had a cached version of the editor, this was displayed rather than the latest version.
  • When you insert an image or file into a page, the URL box now has a 'Find' button in place of the magnifying glass icon it had previously. You can use this button to find the image or file on the website you're editing, if it's already uploaded. Alternatively, you can use it to select an image or file on your computer to upload and insert in a single step.
