  • You can now use nested keys within preview.

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where branched sites would not copy the state of the "upload locked" flag, allowing you to upload images to your git repository rather than your DAM.
  • Fixed an issue where CloudCannon failed to respect the "extra prefix" option when searching and uploading to larger DAMs.
  • Fixed an issue where you could not see non-image files in a Cloudinary DAM via the CloudCannon browser.

New keys to allow and remove custom markup

March 14th, 2024 | Minor

This release added the allow_custom_markup key to enable editing of custom markup in rich text editors and the remove_custom_markup key to strip custom markup from rich text. It also added documentation links to checkboxes and switches, a Copy output button, custom URL support for your dashboard preview screenshot, and updated the View output button.

This release addressed several issues, including those affecting publishing to posts in Jekyll, image duplication in the Visual Editor, embeds, the conflicting updates warning, and new files.

Features & Improvements:

  • Added more options for handling HTML or Markdown structure that cannot be recreated in the rich text editor.
    • The allow_custom_markup key allows you to edit custom markup in rich text editors and explicitly accept the risk of unintentionally deleting elements that cannot be recreated.
    • The remove_custom_markup key will strip custom markup from content edited in a rich text editor, allowing you to clean files of unnecessary HTML content.
    • The remove_custom_markup key is disabled if allow_custom_markup is enabled.
    • You can define these keys anywhere you would configure a rich text toolbar. By default, allow_custom_markup is false for inputs and true for editable regions, and remove_custom_markup is false for inputs and editable regions.
    • You can configure both keys using the configuration GUI.
    • When using allow_custom_markup outside of editable regions, content that uses JavaScript will not be editable for security reasons. These inputs will appear as uneditable snippets.
    • For more information, please read our documentation on best practices for HTML in rich text and editable regions.
  • You can now add documentation links to checkboxes and switches.
  • You can now copy your build log using the Copy output button in the build modal, on the Status page, and in the Builds history tab.

  • Fixed an issue preventing you from pushing local changes to a new branch.
  • Fixed an issue where opening a file in an editing interface would automatically add focus to the first input.

More permissible editing for custom markup in editable regions

March 8th, 2024 | Minor

This release addresses an issue impacting sites that use "custom markup" in editable regions. Custom markup is any HTML or Markdown structure that cannot be recreated in the rich text editor (e.g., <div> tags or style attributes). This is normally any structure that cannot be produced by the WYSIWYG toolbar.

Yesterday's release (New CloudCannon editing interface!) contained the following update:

  • HTML elements that cannot be recreated in the rich text editor (e.g., div tags) will now appear as uneditable Snippets. This prevents you from unintentionally deleting unsupported HTML elements from your file.

The rationale for this update was to protect your content from someone unintentionally deleting custom markup. As CloudCannon cannot render custom markup in the rich text editor, there is a risk that someone could accidentally backspace or delete it. This risk was present in previous versions of the editing interface, and yesterday's release intended to address this.

We understand that this change caused several concerns for some of our customers. We apologize for any interruptions to your work caused by this change and are committed to creating a better experience for customers who rely on custom markup.

We have created a more permissive experience for sites using custom markup. This release allows you to edit the content within your editable regions in line with the editing experience available before yesterday's release. Some markup remains uneditable, but now it looks more like your live site and does not appear as an uneditable Snippet.

We are also creating a feature for HTML inputs in the sidebar of the Visual and Content Editor and the Data Editor. Sites that rely on custom markup in these places will have access to an "unsafe editing mode", allowing you to explicitly accept the risk of unintentionally deleting elements that cannot be recreated.

If you want to reduce any risk to your site, we recommend reviewing the placement of your editable regions or creating custom Snippets so your team can add, remove, and edit custom markup without the risk of losing your content.

At CloudCannon, we are committed to providing the best support experience possible. Please contact our support team if you have any questions or concerns about this issue. We are happy to assist in any way we can.


This release also added support for WebP as a MIME-type format and a flag allowing Clients to use the Legacy Editor.

It also addressed several issues affecting image previews, Snippets, site backups, and the Legacy Editor.

Features & Improvements:

  • Added a more permissible editing experience for custom markup in editable regions.
  • CloudCannon now supports WebP as a MIME type format.
  • Added a site flag to allow Clients to use the Legacy Editor.

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where, when an image URL contained a fragment, the image preview would not load.
  • Fixed an issue where tabbing to the drag indicator on a Snippet and pressing enter would replace the Snippet with a new line.
  • Fixed an issue where the Snippet controls would not appear if the Snippet was the first element in a file.
  • Fixed an issue where open editing sessions with no unsaved changes would prevent Legacy Editor users from making changes.
  • Fixed an issue where site backups would always include the .git folder, even when explicitly excluded.
  • Additional error handling was added to prevent an issue where the Update status indicator would continuously loop.
  • Updated dependencies to patch security vulnerabilities.
