This is our first site update of 2015. Here are the new features and improvements;

 

  • An Image Gallery can be added to any piece of content (and SuperWidgets) -- How to use the Image Gallery
  • New Widget: "Latest YouTube Videos" widget (for Group and Community owners) -- Using the YouTube widget
  • RoadTests are now link to the corresponding Design Center product page to help you research your project
  • Behind the Scenes: Standardised 'Register Interest' forms for things like upcoming product launches. We used to code these from scratch (or copied code from the last one).. now we’ve centralised the code and streamlined the sign-up process.

 

And here are the bug fixes and small improvements;

 

  • Message will not stop appearing in my inbox even though you flagged it as read
  • Increase size of the video on video pages
  • Alter Unsubscribe so that you don't have to be logged in to use it & add messaging into the email that lets you know you have 10 minutes to enter the verification code
  • The text editor wasn't displaying properly on blogs
  • ‘What's Popular Now’ widget doesn't take any notice of # results parameter.. now we can display more content in that widget
  • 17 UI/UX enhancements + fixes covering RoadTest, RoadTest Applications, RoadTest Reviews, and Design Challenges
  • Alter our 404 page to keep URL parameters (before they were getting stripped out, which was annoying)
  • Fixed issue with "Recent Videos" widget not displaying all the recent videos
  • Menu popup for touch-based devices
  • Over a dozen SEO improvements in areas like Design Center, Events and Video
  • Log failures in the API that retrieves products.. so we can keep an eye on potential issues with these feeds
  • JavaScript resource versioning and refactoring (improves performance and stops files getting stuck in caches)
  • The login box from the registration page had display issues
  • On the main page of content, it does not change colour of the link showing you have already viewed it
  • Some videos are getting created with no title
  • Show MCM + CPC as an option in the product panel for certain products even when they have no stock
  • Stop people entering Password1 as their password during registration.. we have that in some hint text and want to make sure people don’t end up using it
