The SiteNow platform is comprised custom solutions built on top of several open-source projects. Sometimes issues arise that cannot always be addressed immediately because they rely on a solution that comes from the open-source community. We do what we can to document, workaround and temporarily patch issues here. Below is list of known issues that affect the majority of SiteNow v2/v3 websites. Please contact us to report additional issues and/or workarounds.
There are issues with embedding content within the WYSIWYG text editor with certain versions of Chrome. Possible issues include:
- After embedding a file into the content area, you can’t type or advance the cursor from the file focus.
- Tabbing or arrow keys do not work.
- The embed media window doesn’t close after reopening.
Workaround: We recommend using another browser.
Inline elements do not display correctly within the WYSIWYG text editor resulting in stacked elements.
Workaround: If aligned (e.g. image setting), the element should display correctly in preview and on content display.
There are issues concerning with CKEditor’s Table resize. The table resize (dragging width/height of table/cells) works in the editor but is stripped with filtered_html because it uses the style attribute which is a known XSS vulnerability.
Workaround: Allowed classes in WYSIWYG.
There is an error when photos taken from an iPhone with orientation data get rotated incorrectly.
Workaround: Saving the image in the right orientation before upload.
There is an error when selecting two or more images from entity browser in WYSIWYG.
Workaround: No workaround for now. To avoid this, don’t try to select more than one image at a time.
When you add an item to a details container or flexbox container in webform the ‘add element’ button on the container will disappear.
Workaround: By clicking edit on the container and then closing the edit panel, or by simply creating the element on the top level and dragging it underneath the desired container.
For the the People Manual Sort option, Drag handles are the only way to order people. “Show row weights” does not show the weight fields with integer fallback sorting. Additionally, new people are added to the top of the list instead of the bottom.
Workaround: No workaround for now.
For some websites, the SiteNow Articles Monthly Archive block is sorted with the oldest date first instead of the newest.
Workaround: Please contact us with your website URL and we will manually update the configuration.
When adding images to an image gallery, there is an issue when adding a link to the global caption where both the link configuration modal and the image upload modal are dismissed without finishing the image upload.
Workaround: You can add global image caption links as a follow-up step on the Content > Media overview page when you edit the image.
