Sitefinity July 2020 Release
New content type, enhancements, and more!Kali Karakasidou | Office of Information Technology Jul 28, 2020
We hope everyone’s summer is going well! Our Sitefinity July release has been primarily focused on fixing bugs and issues stemming from the CU Denver Student Journey Web Experience (CUD SJWE) launch. If you haven’t yet, we encourage you to read more about all the changes that were a part of this big initiative.
Although we’ve been primarily focused on CUD SJWE bug fixes, we’re excited to announce that we have released a new content type: Cost Content Type. This re-usable content type will allow site builders to centrally manage cost information to show across different sites, sub-sites, and pages. To learn more about how to use this content type, please visit AtWeb.
Enhancements to current functionality
The following enhancements were addressed in July’s release:
- Update various widgets to use a relative image path. This fix ensured that security warnings were not appearing on our pages, which was happening because we were loading images on http, not https.
- Update the Video widget to provide the ability to show the video thumbnail, like you can do in video gallery.
- Allow .svg uploads to Checklist Phases, checklist Steps, and Enhanced Cards.
The following bugs were addressed in July’s release:
- Forms: the CAPTCHA field won’t work when comments are not enabled.
- People content type: remove full-width image from mobile on cards.
- Newsroom: the icon that signifies that a story is an external link is next to the name rather than the text “Full story.”
- Enhanced cards: make sure error message does not get shown when selecting an embeddable video but putting nothing in it.
- Academic Programs: comma before psuedo class should be updated to match style guide.
- Department: widget was not appearing in the toolbox.
- Events: paragraph text color was changed accidentally in the detail view.
- SJWE pages: global header of CU in the City mark was not centered on some pages.
- Checklist phases: for the ColoradoSPH theme, the font size was too large.
- Horizontal navigation: on iPhone 6 and Safari browser, the top navigation was jumbled and unusable.
- Research admin: description is now visible in links & resources and headline is now above the sub-phases description
- OIT alerts: planned outage battery is now available in list template.
