SITEFORUM v8.1 - release August 2015
Main innovations: More Media Pool usability; New story inline editing; Improved portal activity statistics
Release 8.1 is once again a solid development of the software and you can look forward to numerous improvements. Following the major release, 8.0, this new release contains further optimizations, especially for content management. The focus has been set on consolidation of existing features in order to make your daily business both efficient and target-oriented.
More Media Pool usability
The Media Pool has received another usability makeover with version 8.1. It is now much easier for users to upload new files and to embed images or documents in stories and blogs. With release 8.1 images and documents are directly embedded into the editor and displayed with a preview instead of the placeholder. A new image editor makes it very easy to save an image with new dimensions, to rotate it or to crop it.
New story inline editing
After introducing a new editor with SITEFORUM release 8.0 the next enhancement is ready to be deployed in version 8.1: Inline-Editing, the second level of improvements for the Content Management System. Inline-Editing allows quick text modifications without switching to the complex story edit process in Portal Manager. All modifications are made and saved directly in the front-end.
Improved portal activity statistics
The section Tools & Administration > Statistic received a comprehensive update. Obsolete statistics have been removed and replaced with new overviews. The activity report, which didn’t cover all sections of the portal in the past, now contains various applications, grouped per module. Widgets clearly display totals and changes within a period.
Selection of other improvements:
- Improved storage overviews
- Sorting of menus and stories via drag&drop
- New date selection in all applications
- Mobile optimization
- SEPA-conform debit
- New image gallery template and widget design
- Multi-language 301 redirects
