I’m happy to announce the release of mojoPortal 188.8.131.52, available now on our download page.
Although it has only been a little more than a month since our last release, we’ve been very busy with more improvements some of which have been long standing requests.
Page Content Wizard
Most of you who are familiar with mojoPortal know how to add features to a page, but I've noticed on our demo site some people manage to create pages but then for some reason can't figure out how to add content by clicking the "Edit This Page" link. To make it more friendly for new users and for people trying mojoPortal for the first time on our demo site, we've added a simple widget for adding a content feature to a page. This widget is shown if user visiting the page has edit permission on the page and the page has no other content on it and is not configured to show the child page site map.
We’ve also added a new default profile field for AuthorBio. By default it is only available to Administrators, Content Administrators, Content Authors, and Content Publisher roles.
Reduced the number of Url parameters and added a site map for forum threads that can be submitted to search engines for greatly improved SEO in the forums feature. See the updated Site Map documentation for details.
Added support for showing an Author Bio at the bottom of blog posts.
Added support for a Sub Title per post, with theme.skin support to configure what element it renders as in the list an in the detail view.
Added support for multiple bloggers: A user in the edit roles for a blog can only edit their own posts unless the user is in the Administrators or Content Administrators roles. This can be disabled from user.config if you prefer the old behavior where any editor could edit any post. See the updated blog documentation for details.
Added support for per category feeds. Now by default the feed icon on the category page has the category specific feed url.
Added support for post end dates. If an end date is specified, then the post will no longer be available to users not in an edit role. Other users who visit the post url will see a message saying the content has expired and the HTTP Status code 410 will be returned for search engines, and the post url will be removed from the google site map.
Fixed bug where the feed would return an error until a post was made from the UI.
Added options for showing the Author Photo/Avatar and/or an Author Bio at the bottom of Html Content instances.
Added support for some new token replacements that can be used to personalize the newsletter, with settings for fallback default values configurable on the newsletter definition. See the updated newsletter documentation for details. https://www.mojoportal.com/usingthenewsletter.aspx
Other Miscellaneous Improvements
Added a SkinID to registration page validators so they can be configured form theme.skin. Changed to dynamic display so that by default the error messages are shown inline next to the form fields.
Updated Italian translation from Diego Mora Updated the config settings to use the latest versions of jQuery and jQueryUI from the google CDN.Updated to the latest version of log4net.
Fixed bug where only admins could edit an html instance from within content manager (without the context of a page), and content admins were not allowed by mistake.
Fixed bug where Audio and Video features allowed upload media file types not actually supported in the features.
Fixed bug in internal comment system where site root was duplicated in the comment link in the notification email.
Fixed bug PayPal form element values should be attribute encoded not html encoded. Fixed bug in Image Gallery where Nivo slider did not work when the site was running in a sub folder rather than in the root directory.
Fixed a bug where if a user registered on the site after previously only signing up for the newsletter, duplicate newsletter subscriptions were not removed. This bug was introduced in version 184.108.40.206 when we added the newsletter opt in to the registration page.
Removed Artisteer specific CSS selectors from admin menu CSS, this prevented some of the Artisteer bullet point icons from showing in content. However we’ve also updated the style-artisteer-overrides.css included in the skins that ship with mojoPortal to prevent the Artisteer bullet icons from specific places where we don’t want them due to other styles in use. We’ve also updated our Artisteer skin exporter to include these changes.
The mojoPortal Team would like to wish our friends in the US a Happy Thanksgiving! We will be taking a few days off to enjoy time with our families and we are thankful to our community and customers who make what we do possible with your support and feedback.
