WCMS URL changes and you

With the release of version 1.7 of the WCMS, some URLs for pages on your sites may have changed. This is a guide to what these changes are, why they happened, and what will happen going forward.

The first thing to note is that only automatically generated URLs were changed. If you explicitly set a URL for a piece of content, that URL was not changed.

WCMS version 1.7.1 has been released to all sites

  • Site managers are now able to set role expiry dates.
  • Events by audience and events archive lists now show events in descending order.
