  • SAN-898 Bloggers need access to /admin/content/node - Allows the Blogger role to use a more advanced search and search for specific blogs, authors, titles, and more.
  • SAN-697 Add Smart date feature to timestamp - Smart date will automatically update the user's view of a publish date to be change based on the age of the content. For example if the content was published 5 minutes it ago, it will say '5 minutes ago'. When the content ages into hours, days, and longer, the date will update to match the period of time.
  • SAN-738 Add Primary channel eyebrow to content - Basic Content will now display the primary channel associated with the content directly above the title of the node. If the primary channel is associated a term, the user can select the primary channel and be taken to that term listing page.
  • SAN-161 Bonnier RSS Builder (Phase 1) - Incorporate RSS feed builder module into Sandcastle to support third party syndication partnerships (i.e. Flipboard, Google Currents, Pulse, etc.) cc: Sean Holzman. The Bonnier RSS Builder is a major component for our Sandcastle sites so we can work with our many third party partners and build the appropriate feeds quickly and efficiently.
  • SAN-791 Update Drupal RSS feeds - Update the default drupal RSS feeds on Sandcastle. Currently they only output title & byline but should include title, subtitle, date, author, teaser image, summary. This update will include SAN-75 which is a bug fix to display the Author term selected with content instead of the username of the editor who created the node itself.

Administration Interface Changes:

  • SAN-689 Clean up multiple workflows and results for insert image - This update will clean up the work area for editors to help maximize the ease of use when working with images on Sandcastle including:
    • SAN-780 Remove the Youtube tab in the Media module - Searching for YouTube videos within the Media module does not work smoothly. YouTube videos moving forward can be embedded using the ‘web’ tab and inserting the URL to the video.
    • SAN-781 YouTube start time URLs in web tab - Brands should work with JD if using this is desired.
    • SAN-782 Stop auto searching on File name for Library and My Files tabs, search should only begin when ‘Submit search’ is clicked

  • SAN-891 892 Change to basic content top video, image, and gallery panes. Setting ‘top’ and ‘bottom’ displays for video, image, gallery will no longer span the width of the site, residing inside the content well again. Setting ‘featured’ display for video, image, gallery will allow these panes to span the width of the site, moving the right rail below.

User-facing and Performance Changes:

  • SAN-674 Chrome: Pager functionality does not work - Currently users are only allowed to create a single pager on a custom page and upgraded term page. There is functionality that will automatically turn off the additional pagers on the node, which currently is broken on Chrome. This bug will fix that. As a backup, we already have the system set to throw an error which tells the user that they have more than one pager selected and they will need to correct that before being able to save.
  • SAN-451 Fix Content listing shows same node
  • SAN-764 Fix animated gifs in compact view mode to use image cache - Ensures that best practices for performance are being following in the compact view for content on Sandcastle.

  • SAN-854 Fix for po.st gallery paging on infinite scroll
  • SAN-872 Fix for mobile sticky header breaking on mobile using Safari if cookies are blocked
