New version of CMS Lars Vivo 2.3 is out
The new version delivers greater stability and system optimization, customized user interface and new setup options.
Let’s check out what’s new:
Working with Docs
The new change in storage (repository) allows the administration interface to handle hundreds of thousands of documents (pages) with different content from text to images. As these are large amounts of content, several requirements for convenient management have been resolved while maintaining good performance of the application.
What is more, there is also enhanced search in documents, where you can search not only by names, but also by the document path. This makes easy to find, say, all graphs that contain a particular keyword in the title or just in the path. Searching and filtering is also possible by "tags" now, which gives the editors an even more powerful tool. If the number of documents amounts to hundreds of thousands searching by name doesn’t usually do anymore. That’s why frequently edited documents and documents in progress can be marked as favourites so that we can quickly and easily go back to editing.
For clarity, labels of different colours have been added to each document status. At the same time, documents can be filtered by their status. Furthermore, the publication date is added to the syntax tree, which also makes it easier to browse the structure on larger publishing portals.
Similarly as with articles, working with other types of media has also been improved. Trying to find your bearings in a large number of various media is even more difficult than looking for ordinary articles. That's why we've prepared a new media overview with thumbnails and titles, and besides that we're making it easy to filter again.
Structure, Stability and New Features
In the previous version, the URL page was derived from its location in the structure. There was also the option to define an alternative URL for each document. As we need global address formats these days, content-rich publishing portals have been upgraded in the new version with the option to modify the address in a system mode as per configuration for a specific page group (the whole section of the site). As a result, the web page structure can now be logically broken down by functional and business requirements that support SEO and other marketing goals.
The option to add positions (such as banner) alternating with dynamic content has been added in components dynamically displaying content (e.g., links to articles).
We can also enjoy more detailed labels and hint texts for different types of fields and settings, which simplify adding content and make it more organised.
Optimized CSS performance significantly accelerates the page loading speed. The speed tests typically reach > 90% in PageSpeed tests both for desktop and mobile.
Working with administration has also been enhanced to give you greater comfort. You know the moments when you think of the right wording of a text or when you need to handle an urgent e-mail, then you get back to working with CMS, but the system tells you have been automatically logged out (for security reasons). Using the "sliding cookie" mechanism makes it easier for administrators to work with the system while maintaining system security. CMS does not automatically log you out when working longer, and administrators can fully focus on working on content.
Finally, there have been made many minor fixes and improvements in patch updates. To be exact there have been 23 since version 2.2.
