New Mango River CMS Features Added in November 2014
Hi Mango River CMS users!
We're happy to announce the following new features which have been made live in the CMS. Many of these involved the ability to add new users to your website. A 'user' is someone you can give access to your website, to either view private content, or to make edits to your site.
- The new add an existing user search feature enables you to search for a specific user by user name or email address, and the user list enables you to filter users based on assigned role.
- Users can now be exported to a CSV file and also imported from a CSV file.
- The users list now includes pagination, enabling you to specify how many users to show on the page and Previous and Next navigation links for paging through the list of users.
- The new System File Manager role gives users access to the File Manager in the text editor. If a user does not have this role, the File Manager button is not available on the toolbar in the text editor. All users are assigned this role by default, but the administrator can remove the role from a user if necessary.
- The new System Image Manger role gives users access to the Image Manager in the text editor. If a user does not have this role, the Image Manager button is not displayed on the toolbar in the text editor. All users are assigned this role by default, but the administrator can remove the role from a user if necessary.
- Redesigned the Manage Users page to separate users and roles to different tabs. Users are now listed on the Manage Users tab and roles are listed on the Manage Roles tab.
- If a user was not assigned to an administrator role, but was granted access to edit a blog or event element, no items were listed in the Manage Posts or Manage Events grids.
- If a role is granted edit access to a page, any user in that role is given edit privileges for all elements on the page. The Manage Posts and Manage Events pages need to consider this security check.
- Search terms that include dashes now return matching results.
- When PayPal returned a payment status of "SuccessWithWarning," the system recorded it as a failed payment, even though it was successful. The payment is now recorded as a successful payment.
