SiteBuilder 2.578 released

We released SiteBuilder version 2.578 on Wednesday 10th April 2024. Changes in this update include:

  • New feature: Multi feed component. This new addition to the Components Editor adds a feed to your page which can combine news, events and other items from up to 10 sources, including RSS feeds.
  • New feature: Bulk convert pages to the Components Editor. Site admins can now quickly convert large numbers of simple pages in a single batch.
  • Item filter page template: The Tags filter section can now be positioned at the top of the page via the Tag filter position drop-down list in the page properties. Additionally, visitors to Item filter pages can collapse the tags list by selecting the Hide filters button on the published page.
  • The Current Page tab now displays a banner to alert editors of any automatically-detected accessibility issues. Note: Not all accessibility issues can be detected automatically, and we recommend manually checking page content for issues - see our accessibility checklist.
  • Old visual editor pages which use .gif files for icons should now display correctly after conversion to the Components Editor.
  • Page contact emails are now sent in HTML format, which improves how these display in Outlook.
