Editable Content
Added two new CMS tools: 'Editable Content' and 'Editable Content Admin'. The new CMS tools were designed as a simple and subscription-free alternative for services like Cushy CMS and Surreal CMS. Editable Content can be used to define one or more editable sections on the page. These sections can be modified online with the 'Editable Content Admin' tool.
Multiple sections can be added per page. No database setup is required, it uses flat file storage (no mySQL). The page with editable sections does not need to be PHP, the content is dynamically loaded via javascript/ajax. 'Editable Content Admin' works with all supported editors, like tinyMCS and summernote!

CMS Card

Post by Pablo » Mon Aug 17, 2020 6:59 am

CMS Card
- New feature: Added new "CMS Card" object. This is an extended version of the Card object which can be used as part of the CMS tools. Cards are a quick and easy way display information in various ways on a website. The layout of Cards is flexible so they are great for use in responsive websites.
With the new “CMS Card” object, you can display dynamic data from the CMS database in a card layout. Variables are used to indicate which data you want to display. Variables can be used anywhere in the card: header, footer, text, buttons, and even in videos. For example, you could use the ‘extra data’ field of the CMS as the URL of a YouTube video. Each card on a page can display the content of a different CMS article.

During design time, the CMS card may look something like this:

Image

On the published page the variables will be replaced with the content from the database:

Cache Busting

Post by Pablo » Mon Aug 17, 2020 8:32 pm

Cache Busting

- New feature: Added ‘Cache Busting’ option for external CSS and JS files.

To speed up load times, Web browsers are designed to cache CSS and JS files. The cached files are stored on the visitor’s computer, so the next time they visit a site, these files will be loaded faster. However, this may cause issues if you have made changes to the website but the browser still loads the previous (cached) version of the files. When cache busting is enabled, unique suffixes will be added to the file paths of the CSS and JS files. This forces the browser to re-load the files from the server.
