All Changes

Access Control

  • #2465: Introduced an option to the Access Control module to disable the ability to upload public documents or media. This is intended for use on completely locked down "intranet" websites. Contact WDS if you'd like to use this feature.
  • #2489: For sites using the Access Control A collection of features or functionality that can be enabled on sites. WDS has made several optional modules available to site administrators to enable on their site. For example, the "News" module enables the News content type and provide a News List Block for displaying news on a page. , Private Images are now supported in all block types. For example, prior to this change it was not possible to display a Private Image in an Image Block, or to display a news article that used a Private Image in the Content Slider Block.


  • #2443: Fixed an issue where the list view of the Event Calendar block would show the incorrect end date for multi-day events.
  • #2497: Fixed a styling issue on Event Speaker detail pages where the speaker's name and title were partially obscured by the background image.


  • #2461: Blocks that support an optional "View all" link can now be configured to use an external website as the link destination. Previously, only pages on the site could be used.
  • #2462: Exposed filter drop-downs for content list blocks (e.g. News List, Events List, etc.) now show a label of "- Any -" instead of "- Select -" as the default option. This is to better convey that the filter selection is not required and shows results from any and all terms. Note that multi select exposed filters still show the default as "- Select -" for now.


  • #2475: Fixed an issue with the Publications List block (Scholar theme only) where words within a publication title would sometimes break and spread to multiple lines.


  • #2474: Fixed an issue where the access controls settings for some webforms could not be saved.
