    Umbraco 7.6 feedback

    Hi Everyone!

    As you might have noticed, we've released the beta of Umbraco 7.6 - full details here. We'd love feedback and the more we get the faster it'll go from Beta to Release.

    For general feedback use this forum post, but for specific bug reports, please use the issue tracker.

    Hi Niels (and the rest of the team),

    great work getting 7.6-beta out! Tested it shortly (will do it more next week), but really love the new content picker and the way listviews are handled. A really big editor-improvement!

    • I'm wondering if there are any plans to also upgrade the Insert/Edit-link functionality in rich text editors so that it supports the listview-previewing instead of the "Search..."-functionality?

    Of course, I'm also really happy that the security is given some TLC :). Really glad that finally legacyEncoding is defaulted to false, the minimum password length is set to 10 and allowManuallyChangingPassword is set to false.

    • And how about setting minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters to 1 :)?

    All new Umbraco installs now will have the most secure settings possible(http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-6566#)!

    • But I hope you can reopen this issue (http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-6566#) and give it some additional TLC, because I think this will be very annoying for administrators in the future, and everyone will set allowManuallyChangingPassword to true.

    A few questions remain, hope these can be answered shortly:

    • Were there any specific arguments to change the colours of the backoffice to these colours? Is it just because someone liked these colours better, or is there some deeper thought behind it?
    • Why is SignalR implemented in the core. Tried to look it up in the issue (http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-8908) but it remains pretty cryptic for an outsider. Can you give some additional background information about this and some ideas what we could do with it?

    Keep up the great work, can't wait until the final release (will do some testing next week, to make it a final release),

    Jeffrey

    Great feedback, Jeffrey!

    I'm wondering if there are any plans to also upgrade the Insert/Edit-link functionality in rich text editors so that it supports the listview-previewing instead of the "Search..."-functionality?

    We should - we honestly missed this one (it also needs auto-focus on url when you open the dialog). We'll look at it for 7.6.x.

    But I hope you can reopen this issue (http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-6566#)

    That's the same issue that was quoted above - copy/paste error?

    Were there any specific arguments to change the colours of the backoffice to these colours? Is it just because someone liked these colours better, or is there some deeper thought behind it?

    The color set was a part of a design manual that was made a couple of years ago. We wanted the back office to have a friendlier look and more clear branding without taking the focus away from the important part - peoples content. That's also why you still won't see Umbraco logos when you login. With the roll-out of 7.6 final we'll be using the new color sets across umbraco.com, Cloud, Our, CMS and hopefully also TV (although that might be a little later)

    Why is SignalR implemented in the core.

    We want to enable more real-time features for both CMS but also Cloud. SignalR will also make many things easier for us down the line such as alerting of other users are editing a page, sync the content tree, show status of long running tasks (bulk-publish, big deploys, etc).

    Hi Niels,

    thanks for your reply. That makes a lot of sense.

    Aaargh... And about the copy-paste-issue :(... The issue I tried to mention was http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-7009. It's about the fact that an user when editing his password should always enter his old password, but administrators when resetting a password should never have to enter the old one. Currently it is one and the same control for users and administrators, but by setting the AllowManuallyChangePassword to false it requires administrators also to enter the old password. As said I hope that you guys can give it some attention

    Cheerio, Jeffrey

    Thanks for the double-check! I could've sworn it was showing the little "reset password" checkbox which would generate and save a new password without knowing the old one.

    Hi,

    2 first thoughts after 5 minutes of playing with the beta

    Is there a config setting to turn off property value converters (as was discussed in the bug tracker)? I think this will break a lot of existing sites and probably put of some people testing the beta with existing sites?

    Is there any scope to improve the new MNTP? It may be too late at beta stage (and one of these may be ruled out anyway), but if would be good to be able to change a link, and it would also be good to be able to specify a different title (like the RJP Multi URL Picker)

    HTH t

    It is off by default for upgrades, set <EnablePropertyValueConverters>false</EnablePropertyValueConverters> in umbracoSettings.config if not.

    Is there any scope to improve the new MNTP?

    At this stage we're feature complete and focused on bugs :)

    I recommend Archetype or Nested Content for more sophisticated link editing capabilities: https://code101.net/links-in-umbraco-are-broken-but-alternatives-exist-1fe89aae2093

    If I want to upgrade from 7.5x. Is it possible? I stuck on backend login and get password incorrect.

    Yes, but you've merged the web.config so you've updated useLegacyEncoding to be false in the usersMembershipProvider. Which means the stores password, in legacy format, can not be verified. Make sure to set this setting back to true.

    For someone looking to migrate a 6.2.6 site, what do you recommend?

    Do an in place upgrade?

    Can I create a fresh install and migrate my content/database and leave all the ghosts behind?

    If I start with a fresh install, which is better, Web Matrix or NuGet?

    the tinyest of feed back on the tiny editor boxes.

    the font change has made the tiny editor boxes a little to small.

    so for example on image cropper.

    enter image description here

    or re-ordering tabs

    enter image description here

    the numbers get cropped off.

    i think they are using different classes underneath but they just need widening a little.

    Love the colors and the pickers are allso very very nice

    i have noticed one thing about the saved data from the pickers. now they store a "uri" to the document. How do we look those id's up in and ApplicationEventHandler for example ?

    Niels mentioned a design manual earlier. Is there a public styleguide available for Umbraco branding, typography, colours, etc? Would be nice to have.

    Increasing minimum password length to 10 is a bold change. Absolutely not against it, but I can see some having to drop it to 8 or so for some client's sake.
