February 2019 - Contensis software update

Bug fixes

  • Quest email sign up
    Subscribe chevron fixed on IE11
  • Strategic Framework template editor
    Update to template to allow the editor to update the cover image easily
  • Tabs history
    Search tabs now function like a page, so users can easily browse back/forward between tabs and copy/paste individual URLs
  • Cookie policy link
    The 'cookie policy' link in the pop up footer has been fixed on all pages
  • Facebook plugin on Intranet
    This now displays a feed of Facebook posts rather than just a link

Enhancements

  • Image captions
    New control for inserting images with captions now available. To use this, right click in your page > Insert webcontrol > UoB Features > Image with Caption Control*
  • Research secondary nav now on events and news pages
    New secondary nav in the Research section is now visible on events and news templates within the section
  • Meta title suffix on Dubai pages
    The automatic suffix on Dubai pages is now 'University of Birmingham Dubai' rather than 'University of Birmingham'
  • New grid layout
    New 4 column grid now available, which resizes to 2 columns, and then 1 on lower breakpoints. To use this, go to Site elements > Layouts > 4ColumnGridVia2Columns
  • Addition of structured data on news articles
    Any page created using the news template now has structured data added automatically, which will help these pages display richer results in Google
  • Addition of structured data on events
    Any page created using the events template now has structured data added automatically, which will help these pages display richer results in Google. Note that if your event does not take place on the Edgbaston campus, you will need to change the address, as this is automatically populated in Contensis.
  • Addition of structured data on courses
    Any page created using the course template now has structured data added automatically, which will help these pages display richer results in Google. Note that a new 'short description' in the Optional Metadata section will need to be entered for this.
  • Addition of site wide structured data - contact information, social media, breadcrumbs
    Added structured data so that brand searches produce richer results in Google
  • Removal of KIS accordion
    Following approval from the Office for Students and Unistats, we have removed the Key Information Set (KIS) accordion from all course pages
  • PG funding now filterable by Dubai
    The postgraduate funding and scholarship control now has an option for filtering by campus
  • Dubai recommended pages
    It's now possible to set separate 'recommended pages' in site search for the Dubai campus

*To use this feature, you need to add an image using the Image Feature with Caption control, rather than the standard drag and drop feature in Contensis. This is due to the fact that the drag/drop feature is a Zengenti control so cannot be amended in house.
