Cascade CMS 8.9.1

Cascade CMS 8.9.1 is a patch containing an improved UI for browsing the contents of containers and a number of improvements and fixes to Web Services, search and replace, and link checking among other things.

  View Requirements


  • We've made some changes to prevent inadvertent actions on a folder when trying to take action on selected items in the folder. When items are selected in a list, folder and container actions are now disabled, and list actions are docked to ensure they're still visible when scrolling the list.

Issues Fixed

  • Usernames will once again be shown when viewing the Users table in the Administration area.
  • The listSubscribers SOAP operation will now correctly return <assetIdentifier> elements within <manualSubscribers>.
  • The read SOAP operation will now correctly return <tag> elements within <tags> for an assets with tags.
  • Roles are once again included in search results.
  • Addressed an issue where updating the Group assignments for a User may not update the Sites to which they have access.
  • The asset tree will no longer fail to expand after moving an asset.
  • Clicking on the publish notification link after updating an asset will once again load the correct asset's publish modal.
  • Updated reviewable assets that have an valid reviewEvery value to avoid validation errors when updating those assets using Web Services.
  • Adding a Page-level region assignment and using the quick submit will once again render the Page as opposed to a rendering exception error message.
  • It's once again possible to replace phrases in content.
  • Moving an asset after opening an asset's relationships will no longer prevent from choosing a new parent container.
  • Addressed various situations where old versions of Destinations could be published to, such as Workflow Publish Triggers and Web Services (i.e. if an old version's ID is provided).
  • Addressed an issue where links resulting in 100-continue responses during link checking put the link checker in an invalid state.
