Feature enhancements

The following enhancements will be released to all sites today, December 14th, 2017. If you have any questions, contact

Guide Tabs: Simplified Single Tab view
Previously, guides with only one visible tab displayed the full tab design. Today, all sites will have a new Single design option in addition to the traditional Tabbed option in Page Settings for an optimized layout when only one tab is active in a guide.


Tabbed View Example

Simple View Example

Site Structure: Prevention of inadvertent new page creation
Previously, pro members who navigated to a page URL that did not exist would automatically trigger a new page creation at that location. New pages created in this manner can cause site structure errors or create orphan articles without a proper template. Today, all sites will be configured to no longer trigger the creation of new pages via URL and instead display "Page could not be found," with links to related articles.

Site Structure: Deletion of page children
Previously, pro members who attempted to delete a parent page had the option to leave that page's children in place, which removed the ability to navigate to those child pages. Today, all sites will be configured to prevent orphaned pages and instead display a warning about the number of child pages and attachments that will be deleted.
