Release Notes

v4.2.x

General

  • Users can now create galleries to be implemented as carousels on the homepage and landing pages. If a site has a carousel, editors can edit the images and text within that carousel.
  • The user interface for editing taxonomy terms has been simplified by removing unused fields. A vertical tab layout has been implemented to match node editing.
  • A new badge component has been implemented as a homepage option. A badge typically provides an indication of accomplishment, skill or quality such as a top ranking in US News & World Report.
  • Added ability to embed PayPal button code for payment within a site.

News

  • News categories are now called topics.
  • Users can now search to filter news.
  • News has been extended to include topics pages and search. A top stories list has been implemented for topics. The change allows privileged user roles to curate top stories news for news topics.
