29 September 2020 - Contensis software update

Here's a summary of the features and fixes included in the 29 September 2020 Contensis software update.  


Contensis image API - automatic optimisation of images

Automatic image optimisation has been added to images to optimise file size and dimensions to therefore improve image load times and performance. Editors must continue to upload optimised images as they normally would - the Contensis image API will optimise image dimensions and file size (if further improvements can be made) which will improve the end user experience. This currently will not apply to images added in the back end code e.g. lead images on course pages. Also currently unaffected are landing page promos/features, home page controls, Research, Quest and Strategic Framework but future work will ensure these are also optimised.

Event pages - download to calendar and register buttons 

Both the 'Download the date to your calendar (.ics)' and the 'Register for this event' button have been updated to make them consistent and make the text visible on both mobile and desktop.

Updates to Culture and Collections accordion images 

We have updated the images contained in the Culture and Collections accordion which sits in the website footer so that these are now labelled as decorative and will be ignored by those using screen readers.

Skip to content links - Strategic framework 

Skip to content links have been fixed on pages using the strategic framework template so that those navigating the site using assistive technologies are able to access the page content quickly.
