Version: 24 June 2010

The following change requests will be completed by this CMS version release.

New features

  • CRQ1373: A new content type to display word clouds has been added to the CMS. This content type will use the most common words (after the obvious words such as "the") on a set of pages to display links to search for those words on the site. A planned enhancement scheduled for the August CMS version release will give you more control over the link destinations
  • CRQ1540: A new content type for better integration with our Google Search Appliance. This content type allows you to display customised search forms and search results pages within your CMS website.
  • CRQ1626: A new content type to allow course providers to display details of their courses outside the Training Course Booking System, with links into that system to allow bookings.

Additions to existing features

  • CRQ1377: The "Password protected files" content type now has an "upload" mode. You can configure the content item to have an upload form using the same username and password as the existing download forms.
  • CRQ1500: Increased flexibility around which departments' job titles are displayed on staff profile pages is now available.
