CMS Made Simple 2.2.21 - Sherbrooke

Posted June 6, 2024 by digi3
Category: Releases

Hello CMSMSers!

Today we are announcing the release of CMS Made Simple 2.2.21 - Sherbrooke, an incremental bug fix release.

This version addresses a few bugs that came up after the last release:

  • template inheritance was broken for content blocks;
  • the page editor didn't show the text area field for content blocks on some configurations when template inheritance was used;
  • the page editor timed out on some cases (Smarty infinite loop);
  • there was a typo on the page error class that made it impossible to use it;

These bugs were important enough to warrant a new release as soon as it we could diagnose, fix, and test them.

Please see the changelog for a full list of fixes.

As per the Dev Team's official support policy, the only versions of CMSMS currently supported are now v2.2.20 and v2.2.21. Please upgrade at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your time, and have fun using CMSMS!
