Release 1.45.0

We've updated to Drupal 9.5, improved webforms, updated the CMS theme, and deployed some security updates and bug fixes.

Date of release: 5 July 2023

Single Digital Presence (SDP) release 1.45.0 is a scheduled quarterly release for SDP-managed websites.

New features

Improvements to CMS webforms

  • Added a multi-checkbox form field, which lets users select multiple options from a list
  • Improved the conditional logic so that if a user changes a response in an earlier field, any other fields that should no longer be visible will have their values cleared
  • Enabled the option to hide the 'submit' button using conditional logic, which will stop ineligible users from being able to complete a form and allow CMS editors to create interactive decision trees
  • Improved the ‘clear’ button so that it now reapplies any conditional logic states so that, for example, if a field should only be visible when a specific value is provided, it will be hidden again after using the ‘clear’ button

Added 'compact card collection' component

The compact card collection is now part of the core SDP components.

Simplified publishing workflow for industry partners

Industry partner editors can now save their work without the update going through their department publishing team. This allows their subject matter experts to review the page and submit the page for publishing.

Made user roles visible on profiles

CMS editors can now view their permission level, called 'user role', in their profile.

There are new corner graphics on

Updated ‘department’ taxonomy to reflect recent changes

Removed features

Removed 'show advanced filters' checkbox from the content collection component

We’ve removed the 'show advanced filters' checkbox from the content collection component. Advanced filters are now always visible when configuring this component.

Removed the 'restricted' checkbox from media items

We've removed the 'restricted' checkbox from media items to avoid user confusion. It appeared pre-selected but served no known purpose.
