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.
