Feature highlights

 

 

Browser independent administration interface

Browsers / OSs (3)

The emagiC CMS.Net v9.0 administration interface supports following browsers: Internet explorer 7.0 or later, Firefox 3.0 or later, Safari 3.2 or later, Google Chrome 1.0 or later.

Although not advised, you can still limit access to the administration interface to Internet Explorer only to avoid having to make your custom modules/applications browser-independent.

 

New treeview architecture

A new treeview architecture has been implemented as of emagiC CMS.Net v9.0.  This makes the loading of the sitemap, datapart and management trees much faster with less memory consumption.
The treeview architecture is based on the third-party FlyTreeView component (with modified code to avoid memory leaks when reloading nodes). 

 

New Generic Module

The Generic module is designed for developers to speed up the implementation of custom system modules/dataparts (f.e. forgot password, newsletter subscription, ...).
The administration interface of the module/datapart consists of a collection of custom defined key/value pairs that control the behavior of dataparts.  These key/value pairs can be used in the codefile of a moduleskin to execute specific actions. 

 

New wysiwyg editor

emagiC CMS.Net implements a new, more user-friendly and browser-independent, wysiwyg editor based on the third-party FCKEditor component.  For compatibility reasons, the previous wysiwyg editor based on the FreeTextbox component is still available to be used in custom code through the API.

 

Manage documents and images

A new tool has been integrated to manage your document and image folders, i.e. to copy/move/delete multiple documents/images at once.
Furthermore, it is also possible to copy/move/delete documents/images one by one from within the management tree. 

 

Search connector

The existing dtSearch connector has been made more intelligent.  Through some settings in the web.config file, search results can be made independent of certain querystring parameters to avoid unwanted (duplicate) search results. 

 

Miscellaneous

  • Search results for documents, images, users, dataparts, xforms/xdata in the administration interface are displayed in a separate content frame. A search button has been added in the toolbar to easily return to the search results (i.e. to reset focus to the search results frame).
  • A new timeout option, "unlimited", has been added to the administrator settings to avoid session expiration (i.e. automatic logout).
  • Extranet users can be imported by uploading an xml file with user data.  The xml file can now also contain the extranet groups the user belongs to.
  • A custom page ID can be specified in the web.config file to redirect to whenever a given page can not be found on the website.
  • Document/Image gallery: BreadcrumbSearchEnabled property.
  • Form Generator: initial values for the fields can now also be set through code in the load event of the page (FormData object).
  • Form Generator: new autogenerated class names for multi-line textbox fields (i.e. textarea) : TextBoxArea_CssClassData, TextBoxArea_CssClassDataCell, TextBoxArea_CssClassDataRequired, TextBoxArea_CssClassDataRequiredCell.
  • Form Generator: the width of a textbox field can now be set through the number of columns or pixels.
