For example, the "News" module enables the News content type and provide a News List Block for displaying news on a page.

A new Glossary module is available to enable. This module works by adding terms and definitions to a glossary Used primarily for categorizing content, a vocabulary defines a specific grouping of taxonomy terms. Some default vocabularies exist on all sites, but WDS can create custom vocabularies if needed. Synonymous with categories. . Terms added to this vocabulary will be converted to links when used throughout the site which toggle the display of the definition as a tool-tip.

General Features and Bug Fixes

  • #902: Fixed an issue where unpublished taxonomy terms would still appear in taxonomy term list blocks and exposed taxonomy filters in content list blocks.
  • #1015: Event list blocks now have the option to output the event sponsor.
  • #1209: Publication references now accept an optional file upload for attaching related documents. The document link can be included in the Publications List block and are always displayed on the publication detail page.
  • #1216: News List Blocks that are ordered by published date now have a secondary sort based on the date the article was created. This means that if two articles have the same published date, the more recently created article will be displayed first.
  • #1234: Billboard blocks have a new setting called Text Visibility Adjustment which can be used to set a light gradient with black text over the image. The default dark gradient with white text is still available.

  • #1307: Fixed an issue where My PrincetonU events co-hosted by a group that the site is configured to import were not being imported.
  • #1314: Fixed an issue with event location for events imported from My PrincetonU. If events were set to only show their location to those that registered, the text on the Site Builder location field was displayed as "Private Location (rsvp to display)". To reduce confusion about where a guest can RSVP, this text now reads "RSVP on My PrincetonU to see location" for newly imported events.
  • #1315: Fixed an issue where changes to the My PrincetonU configuration form to add additional groups to import would not import previously created events for those groups. Changes to the config form will now cause all eligible existing events to be imported.
