We are proud to announce that LRS® Antilles Content Manager 1.17.0 is now available!

This update includes many under the hood changes, as well as some more visible changes. While a lot of the code changes we have made help to enhance performance, they also open the door for new types of modules to be installed, such as our new modules for Siteimprove® and Data Templates. No update would be complete without fixing known issues, so we smashed all the bugs we could find.



Appearance

To help reduce the number of clicks it takes a user to make updates to their website, we have replaced the click-to-expand sub-navigation with a fly-out menu upon hovering over a module. In addition, we have made some minor adjustments to the look and feel of the dashboard widgets.

Plugins

With our new plugin manager, an unlimited number of plugins can now be added to a page. Also, plugins can now be added to other content areas and modules; something which was not previously possible.

Modules

Pages

To help users make changes even faster to their website, new options have been added to the Quick Edit menu. On the edit page, we have two new features designed to help you make and review changes more quickly: page deletion and view page. With Workflow enabled, you will now see status badges next to your page title, allowing you to rapidly identify pages that are drafted or need approval. Save & Return buttons have been added for Placeholder and Link page types. Additional logic has been added to help make page stubs even more SEO friendly. If you are a shortcut power user, you’ll be glad to know that you can now use Ctrl+S to save your changes to a page.

Users

Accounts that are locked have a new Unlock button, making it even easier for site administrators to assist their users. Impersonation Mode (previously added in version 1.16.0) now displays an alert indicating that you are impersonating a user and provides an option to exit Impersonation Mode. Additional security enhancements have been made to the way Impersonation Mode works, including removing the ability to impersonate a user if you are already impersonating another user.

Profile

You can now view your Audit Log in a convenient, easy-to-read, timeline view. Information about changing your profile photo has been added here, as well.

Resources

Resources can now be protected and require a user login to view. Simply limit the Resource Category Public Access Level to the Roles which should have access. Files uploaded to this category will require users be logged in to their account and be assigned to the corresponding role.

Siteimprove

Our new module integrates with Siteimprove to help you stay on top of your site’s content and critical SEO statistics. This new module can find broken links, spellcheck your content, and make sure you are providing your best face forward on search engines. A dashboard provides a complete overview, a quick popup tool provides you statistics when logged in and browsing your content.

Data Templates

You can now use the data from other modules in custom plugin templates with an expansive templating syntax. This gives maximum control of how your data is presented. Several modules are already supported as data sources with additional modules coming soon.
