For us, most of January was a push to launch the new Graduate College website on SiteNow v3 and to develop the Admissions' Next Steps Vue.js app. At the same time, we were able to add new features and fix some issues with SiteNow.

New Features

  • Added events block (v3) style options.
  • Provided trimmed body/person biography meta description fallbacks if no content description/article summary/short biography values are provided.
  • Added destination redirect for footer login link.
  • Allow metatag overrides on the person content type.
  • Allow content specific robots.txt overrides.

Notable Fixes

  • Featured Image display default is now set to site-wide default setting.
  • More preparations before updating to Drupal 9.
  • Fixed multiple grad.uiowa.edu MAUI blocks Ajax error.
  • Fixed play button for banner video from being obscured on smaller displays.
  • Banner image and featured image will now scale down for smaller devices instead of having a fixed height.
  • Fixed issue with person sidebar information not showing for unpublished content.
