Extension of the Widget Library

Die Widget-Bibliothek von Scrivito wurde wesentlich erweitert.

Auch die Seitenleiste wurde mit einigen Neurungen versehen.

Updated Sidebar

Scrivito JS SDK 1.21.0 was already released back in March. Included in the package were numerous interesting features: Scrivito users can now utilize an overview of the content that has been altered thanks to the updated changes sidebar.

The new sidebar lists, for example, pages and images that have been created, edited or deleted in the currently selected working copy. With the help of the list of changes you can also find content that has been changed in parallel in a working copy that has been published in the meantime. Also included in the update are improved handling of authentication groups and more efficiency in handling changes. You can learn more in our release notes.

Managing Multi-Language Content More Clearly

Significant enhancements have also been introduced in terms of multi-language content. If multiple websites are maintained in one system, Scrivito now also allows you to provide content in multiple languages. In particular, our CMS supports editors and administrators in adding additional language versions of a website or multiple websites to the content and maintaining them conveniently. Numerous tools can be applied for different editorial purposes. For example, the sidebar provides an overview of the websites set up and allows them to be assigned to each other as language versions. Scrivito thus supports you in creating and maintaining related page versions.

The Scrivito JS SDK 1.22.0 release includes new features and fixes, for instance concerning search as well as the use of languages. From now on, editors can set the language of any CMS object via the corresponding property in which the text on a website is written. This applies to pages and images as well as PDF files. In addition, word root search is now applied based on the language of the pages and serves the purpose of providing accurate search results for the terms entered by the user.

The new functionalities further improve the multilingual orientation of the CMS. With this feature, Scrivito again proves to be an efficient content management solution and meets the increasing requirements of internationally active companies with multilingual web presences.

Restoring Content Using the Publishing History

Auch im Seitenverlauf sind neue Features vorhanden.

With another important release, Scrivito JS SDK 1.23.0, we have provided some exciting new features regarding working copies and the publishing process. In particular, usability has been improved even further. For instance, the creation of websites has been significantly simplified. The dedicated dialog allows specifying the name or type of the page as well as the language in a single step, instead of having to open the page properties. 

Thanks to constructive feedback from our users, we were also able to improve the way the page history works. From now on, you can track changes even better.

Provide Your Images via Your Own Domain

 In den Dashboard-Einstellungen können Ihren eigenen Host und Domainnamen angeben.

Last but not least, in addition to fixes for some bugs, we implemented a new feature to allow you to share your images via your domain. In the dashboard settings, you now have the option to specify your own host and thus the domain name that should appear in the URLs of images and other binary data on your website.
