SiteBuilder release notes

SiteBuilder 2.491 released

We released SiteBuilder 2.491 on Monday 17th January 2022. In this version:

  • We fixed a bug which prevented users from adding links to field labels and comment fields in forms.
  • We also fixed a bug where blockquote styling was being removed after publishing a page in the visual editor or the raw editor.
  • We fixed a bug which prevented calendar filter pages from handling tags which included space characters at the start/end of the tag name.

We also made the following bug fixes and improvements to the Components Editor:

  • We fixed a bug affecting Firefox users which meant the Select and Cancel buttons were not visible when adding links to your content.
  • We fixed a bug which meant that the Manage blocks dialog was not always visible when adding a block layout at the bottom of your page.
  • We removed references to right hand content from Components Editor pages. You will see an option to edit the centre content of your page. When editing pages created from templates such as forms, forums and quizzes, you will see an option to edit the page's surrounding content.

SiteBuilder 2.490 released

We released SiteBuilder 2.490 on Monday 10th January 2022. In this version we made bug fixes and improvements to the Components Editor, including:

  • It's now possible to hide your page's heading, for example if you wish to have an image or carousel flush to the top of the page. You can select this option when creating a new page or editing the properties of an existing page. The page heading is still accessible to users who are using assistive technologies, such as screen readers.
  • You can now insert a carousel which spans, for example, two-thirds of the width of the page, rather than the full width. To do this, add a block layout to your Components Editor page, with a block which spans e.g. 8 columns, and then insert your carousel in this block by selecting Add images/media > Carousel from the left-hand menu.
  • It's now possible to select an icon to add to a newly-created button.
  • We fixed a bug which caused a warning to display when editing an existing link.
  • We fixed a bug where duplicating an empty block resulted in non-matching column widths.

SiteBuilder 2.489 released

We released SiteBuilder 2.489 on Tuesday 14th December 2021. In this version:

We also made the following bug fixes and improvements to the Components Editor:

  • It's now possible to copy the contents of a Components Editor page to replace an existing page. This includes replacing the contents of pages originally created using the old visual editor. You can also copy the page's files as part of this process.
  • We added more flexible options for laying out your page, so you can add your own columns and rows instead of adding pre-built layout blocks.
  • We no longer re-format HTML when you publish your page. Previously, when publishing your page SiteBuilder would remove whitespace characters and indent HTML.
  • We continued ongoing work to enable converting existing pages to the Components Editor.
