Feature enhancements

  • Site analysis: link manager - New Feature
    Until now, it was difficult to ensure prolonged link integrity across an entire MindTouch site.  With the release of the link manager, which identifies broken links on both the site and page level, site admins have an easy means to link resolution.

    Benefits include:
    • Visibility to broken links across site
    • Easy page level auditing
    • Improved end user navigation
    • SEO boost (Google hates broken links)

    Learn more about resolving link issues with the link manager.

  • Site analysis: structure - New Feature
    Best in class information architecture is baked into the MindTouch platform. By adhering to MindTouch best practices, end users should have no problem navigating our customer's sites, and Google will boost search rank accordingly. For those sites that need improvement, we have a tool to help get things back on track. The structure report identifies site structure issues on both the site and page level.

    Learn more about how to improve content architecture with the site structure report.
  • Internal linking improvements
    To improve internal link integrity when moving content within your MindTouch site, we have made some changes to the handling of redirects in the product. While you will never notice a change in how internal links are handled, on the back-end we have completely redone the way we track and implement them. These improvements will prevent the unintended overwriting of existing redirects and ensure internal links to pages that have moved will not break.
  • Updated select menus
    We have updated the way we build select menus in the product. Instead of using jquery UI, menus will be rendered using strictly HTML which is more efficient when loading the page. 

Feature deprecations

  • IE 10 deprecation is here
    As of today, IE 10 is officially deprecated from MindTouch. Users who visit your site in IE 10 will be redirected to the Legacy Browser experience instead. The deprecation of IE 10 keeps MindTouch in compliance with Microsoft's own End of Support announcement made earlier this year. It also allows us to develop innovative functionality that isn't supported in this older browser.
  • Removed unused DekiScript templates
    We have removed the following unused Dekiscript templates: 
    • MindTouch/Controls/PrintCartWidget
    • MindTouch/Controls/CommentForm
    • MindTouch/Controls/InteractiveMap


  • MIME type mismatch for streamed attachments
    On Friday, May 5th, we will be rolling out a fix for improperly formatted MIME types on some file attachments. This will resolve a defect which caused the MIME types of some files to change when uploaded to MindTouch. Affected files would then open improperly as text files.
  • User view and search results limit
    We fixed an issue that occurred after a prior update which limited the user view and search history results to 10 items. It is now set back to 500.
  • Updated file type support message
    We fixed an issue with our supported file type message when importing content into MindTouch. It previously stated that CHM files were an accepted file type. CHM files are no longer supported in the current version of MindTouch, although legacy versions will still accept CHM file uploads.
  • Links to deleted files
    We fixed an issue in the link manager which caused links to deleted files to appear as unbroken links.
  • Revision history link not working
    We fixed an issue in revision comparison mode which prevented the link to the older revision from resolving to the correct page.
  • PDFs indentations missing
    We fixed an issue which prevented indentations in content from rendering properly on generated PDFs.
  • Changing community members to pro members
    We have restored the ability to change a community member to a pro member on the User edit page in the Control Panel.
  • Disappearing table background colors
    We fixed an issue which caused the background color for even rows to disappear in edit mode and when hovering in view mode.
  • Dekiscript template calls
    We fixed an issue which caused some Dekiscript template calls to not honor the correct page permissions.
  • Attachment views in user view and search activity
    We fixed an issue which caused an attachment view entry to not display an icon, a file location, or the name of the file.

Upcoming feature enhancements

  • A secure MindTouch experience with enforced HTTPS
    On May 22, 2017 we will be enforcing HTTPS connections for all sites with SSL enabled. This will allow us to provide a more secure experience for our customers and move towards a more secure web. Most MindTouch customers have already moved over to using HTTPS for their users. Over the last couple of months, we have sent out information to you regarding this change, but if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact MindTouch Support. Some of the benefits of enforcing HTTPS for your MindTouch site include:
    • Getting a search rank advantage from Google
    • Encouraging trust with your users
    • Ensuring your content's data integrity

Future deprecations

  • There are no future deprecations at this time.
