Version 7.1.0 release notes

A minor release with great enhancements for your content management experience.

Published:

We are happy to bring our new logo to life in this release. It is a subtle change from the previous logo, but we think it better fits the CMS.

Front Matter logo

Front Matter now allows you to search through the entire content of your site. Before, we only used the title, description, and slug. We extended this to include the content of the markdown file.

We hope that this helps you make it easier to find the content you are looking for from the contents dashboard.

💻 View modes

View modes is a new feature that allows you to specify what functionality you want to see and use from Front Matter. The feature will enable you to define a view mode for content authors to only see the metadata section in the panel and to hide all other actions which are not relevant.

Info: Check out the view modes section of the documentation to learn more about its functionality.

🔦 SEO Keywords field moved

Where did the SEO Keywords field go to? Well... it's now in the SEO section, where it always belonged.

🪪 Content card enhancements

Content cards received some extra love! We added card actions to view, delete, and run your custom scripts/actions, but that is not the only thing that changed. We also added the ability to show the card tags, which is changeable.
