Feature highlights

 

 

Poll module
The new Poll module allows you to create online enquiries based on a question and several answers where a visitor can choose from.  The Poll module also displays the poll results (numeric or graphical).  Features like IP locking and cookie protection are also supported.

 

DocumentList module

The new DocumentList module allows you to render an ordered list of documents.  The documents can be chosen arbitrarily or belong to a given document folder.  The DocumentList module is very easy to implement and is based on the ASP.NET repeater control.

 

ImageList module

The new ImageList module allows you to display an ordered list of images.  The images can be chosen arbitrarily or belong to a given image folder.  The ImageList module is very easy to implement and is based on the ASP.NET repeater control.

 

FolderList module

The new FolderList module renders an ordered list of document or image folders. The FolderList module is very easy to implement and is based on the ASP.NET repeater control.  The FolderList module is mostly used in combination with the DocumentList or ImageList module.

 

QuickUpload connector

The QuickUpload connector is a desktop application that allows you to upload and/or download documents/images to/from your web server without the need of using the administration interface. The security settings specified for the documents/images in the administration interface also apply to the QuickUpload connector.

 

Document & Image statistics

emagiC CMS.Net keeps track of the views/downloads of each document/image.  It counts the number of times a document/image has been displayed or downloaded.  The statistics can be filtered by document/image, by document/image folder, by date and even by user (website visitor).  Statistical data can be downloaded in excel format.

 

Display/download FormGenerator submit data

The data you collect from visitors through input forms based on the FormGenerator module is saved by emagiC CMS.Net into the database.  The data can be viewed from within the datapart administration interface.  Data can also be exported/downloaded in excel format.

 

Database viewer

The database viewer is a handy tool for developers. It let you view and query the emagiC CMS.Net database from within the administration interface. The tool is only available for the administrators, and from IP address, defined in the web.config file.  The tool is NOT intended for use by end-user administrators or in a production environment.

 

FileManager

The file manager is a handy tool for developers. It gives you full control over the emagiC CMS.Net install folder through the administration interface. Following tasks can be executed with the file manager : overview of files and folders, rename files and folders, create new folders and text files, delete files and folders, copy files and folders, move files and folders, view file and folder info, view/edit text-based files, preview images, unpack zipped files, upload files, upload and unpack (unzip) files in one go, download files, pack (zip) and download files and folders in one go.
The tool is only available for the administrators, and from IP address, defined in the web.config file.  The tool is NOT intended for use by end-user administrators or in a production environment.

 

Manage user detail data

emagiC CMS.Net v10.0 now includes an interface to define the different fields of an intranet/extranet user.  In previous versions, the fields could only be defined through custom code using the built-in API methods.  The interface is accessible by the super administrator only.

 

Miscellaneous

  • The emagiC CMS.Net form control used in the default.aspx is now depreciated.  Instead, the ASP.NET form control can be used.
  • The MySpace area has been renamed to Dashboard.
  • In the community settings screen you can now clear the hit log and request log for pages, documents and images.
  • The Region control now has an additional attribute maxNumberOfDataparts.  The value represents the maximum number of dataparts that can be added to the region.
  • Logon module: for each logon datapart you can now define the extranet/intranet groups that are allowed to log in.
  • SideMenu module: you can now access the SideMenu Items collection through code to set/modify the menu item properties.
  • Wysiwyg editor module: you can now also define the height of tables and table cells.
  • XForms/XData module: when using the QuickSelect window to select an image, document, page, user or group, the item is now automatically pasted in the form.
  • (v9.0 SP2) When a page can not be found, the error page is shown (without redirect) with status code 404.
  • (v9.0 SP2) New value "FileName" for the ReturnValue attribute in the XF_Data and XD_Data controls.  The value returns the relative path to the file (image/document).
  • (v9.0 SP2) Single item selection is now possible in the XDataSelection and XFormsSelection datapart administration.
  • (v9.0 SP1) The ScriptTimeout for the admin interface is now set by default to 3600 seconds.  The value can be modified in the web.config file (setting "administration/script/timeout").
  • (v9.0 SP1) The Google map is now independent of the administrator and community culture.
  • (v9.0 SP1) Following characters [ ] - _ , are not removed anymore from the path name of pages and from the filenames of documents and images.  Other special characters are still replaced by a custom defined spacer character.  See web.config file (setting "seo/docFilenameSpacer", "seo/imgFilenameSpacer", "seo/pathnameSpacer").
  • (v9.0 SP1) SEO: if the given pageId is the domain default page and no querystring parameters are defined, the url will be replaced by "/" instead of "/" + friendly path + "/page.aspx/" + pageId.
