MindTouch Success Center

Product release 2017-04-27

Feature enhancements

  • Password reset emails
    We have improved the performance of our password reset functionality so that only one message will be sent at a time and the message will expire after an hour (previously 4 hours).
  • Attachments on custom templates
    You now have the ability to view the files attached to your /Template:Custom pages in our latest version of MindTouch.
  • Updated control panel dashboard
    We have updated the control panel's dashboard to better reflect the improved site structure of our newly remodeled Success Center.

Bug fixes

  • Updated contextual help for reports
    We fixed an issue where the contextual help links found on the following reports were not linking to the correct articles. Links have been updated on the site activity, usage, community scoring, aging, and search reports.
  • Search in place Touchpoint tool quotes
    We fixed an issue for the search in place Touchpoint tool where the closing quote of a search query was sometimes being removed when sent to the server. This could return no results.
  • User and Group dialogs
    Fixed an issue with the alignment and display of the user and group management dialogs found in the control panel.

Upcoming feature enhancements

  • A secure MindTouch experience with enforced HTTPS
    On May 22, 2017 we will be enforcing HTTPS connections for all sites enabled with SSL so we can 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
  • Site analysis: link manager
    Links are an important aspect of relating content throughout your site. They are also an important factor in your site's ranking power in search engines. Because maintaining link health is an important part of ensuring a healthy MindTouch site we have created a reporting system that lets you track and resolve link issues at the site and individual page levels. We will be releasing this feature in the next week where it will be available to all site administrators using our latest two versions of MindTouch. Learn more about resolving link issues with the link manager.

  • Site analysis: structure
    Out of the box, MindTouch makes it easy for you to structure your content by providing a self-organizing content framework. Using this framework properly will make it easier for your viewers to discover your content through navigation of a logical hierarchy, provide essential topic relationships based on the hierarchy that makes it easier for search engines to understand the content on your site, and provide a better internal search experience. We have created a reporting system that will help you find site structure issues at the site and page levels in order to maintain a healthy site. In the next week, we will be rolling out this feature to site administrators of the latest two versions of MindTouch. 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 how we handle 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.

Future deprecations

  • IE 10 deprecation in May 2017
    In June 2016, we announced the creation of a Legacy Browser experience that would allow users to view MindTouch content in deprecated browsers. At the time, we decided that Legacy Browser would work for IE 9 and below. Now that some time has passed and we have analyzed how MindTouch users view content in Internet Explorer, we would like to add IE 10 to that list in accordance with Microsoft's own End of Support announcement earlier this year.
