Sitebuilder 2.260 - 20th April 2012 - Release notes

Sitebuilder 2.260 was released on 20th April 2012. Highlights from this release include:

Printable PDFs of Formsbuilder submissions

An example PDF rendition of a form submission

You can now download submissions to Formsbuilder forms in a PDF format for storage or printing. The submissions are laid out in a format designed to replicate the behaviour of the original form and can be useful when a paper copy of submissions is required.

To download submissions as PDF, click the "PDF" link from the View Submissions page.


More layout options for "Like this" buttons

When you insert "Like this" buttons, you can now allow them to be displayed vertically instead of horizontally, as seen below:

Horizontal
Vertical

Presentational layout tables

If you use tables to layout content on your page (for example, to split your page into multiple columns) you can now check a box stating "This is a layout table" when you insert or edit the table in the JScript editor (you can also add role="presentation" if you use the Raw editor). This setting causes tables to "stack" cells on top of each other when displayed on a mobile device, which will make your content easier to read. It also has benefits for screen readers, who know that the table does not contain data, but is only used to change the layout of the page.



Design improvements to Table of Tags pages

A number of improvements have been made to the display of Table of Tags pages in order to make them easier to use in sites currently using ID6.


Potentially breaking change - overwriting existing pages using the Atom Publishing Protocol API

Previously, if you submitted a POST request to the Atom API for a particular page, it would overwrite that page (including all sub-files and sub-pages) and create a new page in its place with the content specified, without any warning or confirmation. As of this version, this will no longer work - Sitebuilder will return a 400 (Bad Request) status code when you try and issue an Atom POST to a page that hasn't been deleted or purged.
