WCMS 3.1.4 release

Monday, March 14, 2022

All WCMS 3 sites have been upgraded to WCMS 3.1.4.

These release notes are subject to change without notice.

Release notes


  • Added grid (thumbnail) option to image galleries
  • Updated "full width image" block to be the more generic "image" block, where images can either be full width or explicitly sized and aligned
  • Added support to webform for client side validation and a text counter
  • Added support for different list style types (e.g. roman numerals, etc.)
  • Made link autocomplete in the visual editor able to find media (images and files) on the site


  • Fixed instances where information collected in some fields (e.g. job titles, associated images, etc.) was not displaying on the page. If you manually added these things, you will have to remove them to avoid duplication.

  • Prevented dashboard from showing blocks for every piece of created content when adding blocks
  • Made Active Directory groups for authenticated webforms be case-insensitive
  • Made "login destination" work when passed to ADFS login
  • Separated the image field in contacts so you can separately specify a listing page image and a "node" image
  • Fixed a loophole that did not enforce the password policy when creating local logins when certain roles were used (ADFS password policy was always enforced)
  • Added service hour notes field to service content type
  • Added support for exceptions to service hours in the service content type

  • Ensured all content types that create pages can use both the "information for" and main menus
  • Prevented some errors when images in use by blocks have been removed
  • Made fieldsets on node edit forms be collapsible
  • Fixed issue where contact links on the contact listing page would link to the listing page instead of the intended destination

  • Made site footer and blank black footer bar visible with generic theming
  • Fixed all day events not showing as all day in multi-type list blocks
