Version 2.2.0

APRIL 01, 2019

  • Introduces ability to configure an Image Uploads folder in the main Alloy Control Center stack.
  • Integrates the Editor stack's Topper Image capability into the new Image Uploads folder. You can now directly upload your images for the Topper Image when editing or creating blog posts.
  • Adds preview of Topper Image when editing or creating blog posts.
  • Adds new label customization field in Editor's settings for the Topper Image Upload label.
  • Adds an Image Upload button to the toolbar of the Editor stack's main content area. This button allows you to upload an image directly in the Editor while writing your blog posts. Once uploaded Alloy's Editor will then insert the appropriate Markdown for the image into the blog post where your cursor was located.
  • Adds a new Topper Plus stack. This stack, in combination with Alloy's Conditionals stack, allows you to create banner-like toppers for your full post view. We've created a tutorial video explaining it and how to use it on the Alloy Tutorials page.
  • Adds a Lead Paragraph feature to the Blog Entries stack. When enabled this feature will turn the first paragraph of the Full Post view into a Lead Paragraph.
  • Fixes a bug where the toolbar's background would appear to be transparent when used in conjunction with certain site background colors.
  • Changes the filename of the default new post that is created the first time you visit the Alloy page if you do not have an existing Posts folder on your server. This prevents duplicate posts if by chance you edit and re-save the default sample post.
  • Adds the ability to hide the Topper Images for your blog posts in the Summary List view.
  • Minor fix related to how the Topper Image ALT tag was handled previously.
  • Other minor bug fixes.

Version 2.1.1

January 29, 2019

  • Bug fixes related to downloading backup blog posts.
  • Changes the way the description text for RSS feeds is generated by Alloy. Helps to ensure some characters and symbols do not cause problems within the RSS feed.
  • Fixes publication date formatting for RSS feed data.
  • Adds in LastBuildDate meta data for RSS feed.
  • Other minor Download Posts (Backup) and RSS feed code tweaks.

Version 2.1.0

January 15, 2019

  • Implements a hopefully more reliable redirect after deleting a blog post within the Editor stack. The previous method worked well for most users, but a few people ran into a situation where the blog post would get deleted but they would not be automatically returned to the Posts List page.

  • Changes the way some paths are formed within Alloy. A couple of users ran into a corner case where they were unable to delete posts or download their backups from the Posts List view due to the way their particular project was setup. This should provide more solid path generation for these corner cases.

Version 2.0.1

January 08, 2019

  • Fixes a bug where colons within a blog post title could throw and error. This update fixes that problem as well uses some encoding to ensure some other characters will not present a problem as well.
  • Fixes a problem in the Posts List view where the Delete button would be cropped off on smaller mobile devices. The Posts List view now hides each post's date to provide more room for the buttons and blog post title on these smaller mobile devices.
  • Fixes a small typo in the Alloy stack's settings.

Version 2.0.0

January 02, 2019

  • Major addition: Introduces the Editor stack, allowing you to manage your blog directly from your site. Using the Editor stack you can now create, modify, delete and backup your posts online.
  • Adds ability to set your local Time Zone.
  • Minor bug fixes and code tweaks.

Version 1.0.2

OCTOBER 11, 2018

  • Fixes a bug where a missing tag was causing Twitter Card meta data to create problems on Full Post views unless a Topper Image was being used in a post.
  • Fixes a bug that would prevent blog content from displaying properly in very rare edge case, on a couple of specific hosts.

Version 1.0.1

OCTOBER 10, 2018

  • Fixes a corner case bug where the blog content would not show if the Date Line was placed below the blog entry title and the Author was turned off.
