A new version of VedaCMS (v7.1) is available. This is a major release that includes several new features which significantly change the core behavior of certain scripts. If you’d like to upgrade to the newest version, please submit a ticket from the help desk. The biggest changes are as follows:
The membership system now includes an option that allows you to protect the entire website as opposed to just individual pages. Enabling this option creates a basic login page that users must pass through before seeing any part of your site.
You now have the ability to temporarily disable individual memberships without deleting them entirely from the system.
The Mailing List tool now saves a copy of any messages you sent out, which can be viewed or re-sent later.
When adding an entry to your Calendar, you now have the ability to enter a private note that can only be seen by you.
New Photo Viewer with Slideshow
A completely new photo viewer has been implemented that includes an automatic slideshow feature (which can be customized or disabled within the settings area). This viewer completely replaces previous versions, so you should not request a VedaCMS upgrade if you don’t want your photo viewer to change.
Undo Last Save
You now have the ability to undo your last page save, which allows you to revert to the previous version of your page in the event of an editing mistake.
Create New Pages
You now have the ability to create new pages for your site. This is an experimental option that is limited in terms of design customization. In order for this to work, I have to create a template file for your site that is based on your main design shell. The photo for any of your add-on pages would be a static image that set for the template, so if you wanted a unique photo on a new add-on page, I’d have to make some customizations for you.
