Release 2014.10

New Features

  • Added the ability to password protect a page. By password protecting a page you can restrict access to only those visitors who know the password. This enables you to secure and grant access to pages on your site, without having to set up a user for each visitor you want to give access to the page. To password protect a page, simply enter a password in the password field on the pages advanced settings. Then give the password to whomever you want to view the page.
  • The new Manage Events page gives you an easy-to-use interface for managing your calendar events. To manage events, select Manage Events from the Calendar element menu. This page lets you sort events by name, date, and modified date. You can also search for events by name or date.
  • You can now specify an end time for calendar events. Previously you could specify only an event start time.
  • You can now list event start and end times on the calendar summary view. Previously, times were displayed only on the event detail page. To display event times, select settings from the Calendar element menu and check the Display event time box on the Basic tab. After release, this box will be unchecked for existing calendars. For new calendars, the box will be checked by default.
  • The Blog element Manage Posts page now gives you the ability to more easily manage your blog posts. These enhancements include the ability to sort posts by title, publish date, and modified date. You can also search posts by title and publish date.

Enhancements

  • The body and summary sections of the BlogML import no longer uses paragraph tags on every new line. The HTML is now imported as is.
  • When blogs are exported from LightCMS, the system no longer serialize the attachments as part of the post. Instead, only the file name of the attachment is stored in the export XML file. The BlogML import process now also looks for and imports the file name of the attachment so it is stored in the new post record. With this change, users must move the attached files from one blog to another via FTPS.
  • Now if a visitor encounters an error on a site or if a site is down, the system displays a page that lets the visitor know we are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it.
  • You now have the ability to configure your element toolbars and menus to display in black instead of the default white. To enable black toolbars, go to your site Settings and select the Advanced tab. Check Enable black toolbars in the Toolbar Options section.

Resolved Issues

  • Default text now displays for an empty Files and Links element.
  • Billing information fields now display at checkout when a customer purchases a free item that includes a handling fee.
  • When a digital download product was created and the source of the digital download was a remote link, an error message sometimes displayed stating no file was found at the URL, even if a file existed at that location. 
  • When a client billed website is upgraded by the account owner and a custom price is set, the custom price is only allowed if it is 5x the monthly price or lower. For partner platform accounts, this now allows a 10x price markup.
