Publishing Database Upgraded

 

News

 

 

G'day all, today I'm going to talk about the database upgrade that just finished. Firstly, we want to say thanks to all users of Menterprise Publishing who waited patiently for the update to complete. Everyone was kind and it made the whole process a lot less stressful!

Personally, I'm ready for a week-long nap right about now!

Benefits

Other than more tools for us developers to use, we are seeing increases in page speed, dashboard speed, security and storage stability!

Why now?

Other than speed/storage improvements, we're heading into some more major updates in Publishing that were limited by our previous database engine/version. We didn't want to limit ourselves, so we upgraded.

Tech info

We transferred around 1TB of data and tens of millions of pages, hundreds of thousands of sites and, of course, everything else. Also, we've transitioned from a 2 DB server setup to a 3 DB server setup for increased speed and resistance to downtime.

What's next?

As for the database, nothing much other than some tweaks and improvements, none of which will require any more lockdowns of the dashboard.


Again, thanks for your patience everyone! More features coming soon… so keep an eye out ;)

Page Configuration Variables

 

Feature

 

 

G'day all! Today we've released the beginnings of a new set of features, "Page Configuration Variables"!

Purpose

The general idea is to let users customize more areas of the page on a per-page basis. This especially benefits users who use non-English languages and want to further configure the pages to support those languages.

And of course it supports Spintax, MPSS and MPub variables!

Note, this is only the beginning, there are more coming. Also, this is currently limited to the pages themselves and not the homepages/category pages.


How to Use

[property=value]


Example 1 - Change the HTML language of the page to German:

Default:

<html lang="en">

On-page (the actual configuration variable):

[lang=de]

Result:

<html lang="de">

Example 2 - Change the meta description and meta og:description:

Default:

<meta data-hid="description" name="description" content="Page Title | Subdomain Title">
<meta data-hid="og:description" name="og:description" property="og:description" content="Page Title | Subdomain Title">

On-page (the actual configuration variable):

[meta.description=Hello!]
[meta.og:description=Hello!]

Result:

<meta data-hid="description" name="description" content="Hello!">
<meta data-hid="og:description" name="og:description" property="og:description" content="Hello!">

FAQ

Q: Can I use it in the Campaign Prepend/Append?
A: Absolutely!

Q: Do replacements work on the text? For example, can I change "lang=es" to "lang=en" later?
A: They do!

Q: Can I use variables to easily change different parts later?
A: You can! Do it like this: [lang=[[variable]]] and set variable to something later

Q: Where do I put it?
A: Anywhere! Like MPSS, it's just on-page text at the end of the day. Personally, I put things like this in the RAW Module when working with Menterprise Content.

Q: Does this work retroactively?
A: Yes! It is dynamic, therefore you can easily update past campaigns with the prepend/append as mentioned above :)


This update is just the start, there are more properties we want to make available, if you have any ideas let us know!
