Site Studio 10gR4 - New Feature FYI
By Joe Duane on Feb 05, 2010
Back in September of 2009, Site Studio 10gR4 included two extremely useful new features:
On Demand Editors-
This is a new feature that allows the contributor form to load and only show a preview of each of the elements until they are clicked on to activate them. This can be very useful when editing a region with a large number of elements where the intention is to only edit a subset of the elements.
Direct Delivery of Native Documents-
Traditionally when a link was made to a Native Doc, that link would redirect to the weblayout location for that file. This meant that a path containing entries like /groups/public/documents, etc, would be seen in the users browser. A new feature has been implemented to allow PDF files to be delivered directly from a friendly URL instead of redirecting to the weblayout location. This helps to maintain the users context within the website. In addition to PDFs, this feature has also been extended to include any other file type. The feature allows a global list of file extensions to be configured and then overrides may be applied, via custom section properties, at the section level.
See release notes for more details.
