Resolved: The WCMS upgrade to V1.12 has now been completed. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience during this upgrade.

IST is conducting a review of this incident, and will make any necessary changes to ensure this issue does not recur and the WCMS development team will hold off on future WCMS full releases until a solution is in place.

Features of the 1.12 release:

•         Replaced the administration theme with Adminimal, a fully responsive theme.

•         Introduced the Bibliography content type, which is used for scholarly content, such as journal papers and books.

•         Introduced the Embedded Timeline content type, which will display items along an interactive timeline. Note that this is the first of a new style of content types that are meant to be created for embedding in other pages, and should not be used on their own.

•         Introduced the Award content type, which is used for student awards and scholarships. This content type must be requested via RT<mailto:rt at uwaterloo.ca?subject=WCMS%20award%20content%20type%20request>.

•         Introduced the ability to have site-wide authenticated access, where login is required to view any pages on a site. This feature must be requested via RT<mailto:rt at uwaterloo.ca?subject=WCMS%20authenticated%20site%20request>. Note that, for this initial release, only web pages are protected; files and images can be accessed without login if the URL is known.

•         Added Mailchimp integration so that Mailchimp subscription forms can be embedded into pages.

•         Added syntax highlighting to the source view of the editor.

•         Updated the editor so that cursor position is preserved when switching between source view and WYSIWYG view.
See the release notes<https://uwaterloo.ca/web-resources/news/wcms-version-112-release> for further details and a list of fixes and updates in this release.

Subject: Update: WCMS upgrade to 1.12 - Sept 29



Update: The WCMS 1.12 upgrade is still running and some sites are continuing to experience issues. If you need to create/update content on your site before the upgrade is complete it is recommended that you save often. We'll let you know when the update is complete (estimate is late this afternoon). We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your continued patience during this upgrade.
