Changelog #14 - February 9 2019
February's update to the Drupal content management system includes bug fixes, WYSIWYG enhancements, a sticky navigation option, and a new content type. On Saturday, February 9th, these new features and enhancements were added to campus websites using the default profile. A workshop on February 21st will be held to present these new additions.
- Bubble spacing - vertical: This fixes the issue when a bubble grid is set to display 1 across and spacing changes depending if there is a link or not. Now, spacing is be equal.
- Button pseudo element breaks page on right column: The pseudo element on alternative button 2 caused the page to scroll (add white space) if used in a smaller right column shown on a small screen size. This issue has been fixed.
- Bulk Upload: Changes have been made that should resolve the issue with bulk uploading.
- Custom Alert: The custom alert should no longer overlap information in mobile.
- File nodes are now centered and the look has been cleaned up. A person's username no longer displays.
Check out web content and design terminology as an example.
- Sitemap -The XML sitemap module creates a sitemap that conforms to the sitemaps.org specification. This helps search engines to more intelligently crawl a website and keep their results up to date. https://www.drupal.org/project/xmlsitemap
This module (XML Sitemap) is not enabled by default. A request to Service Link will need to be made to enable.
- Sortable, Filterable tables - Tables can now be sorted by header column and filtered by typing in the search field. A header must be present in order for the sorting to work. The option is located in the "Styles" dropdown option when the cursor is placed on a cell within the table.
- WYSIWYG Scale image style addition 1170px. A new image style is available called WYSIWYG Scale 1170. This is the size of the grid and will span the full area of the grid or “centered” content.
- Dynamic Columns - A new custom block is available that will allow you to select how many columns to use for your information. Decide what content to show in each column. This will reduce the need to make multiple basic blocks that are used within different layouts.
- Sticky Navigation - There is now an option to change your header and menu into a “sticky nav” where the header information and menu will stay at the top when visitors scroll. To update, site builders will use the Appearance tab and update settings on the theme.
