Community release notes for August 19, 2021

I know, it feels like only yesterday that we sent out the last batch of community release notes. Actually it was three days ago. 😉

However, today we're rolling out an editor update, and we've made some improvements! Take a look at the before and after:




Improvements include:

  1. Access to the HTML and Preview modes in some views (e.g. when composing an article)
  2. A strikethrough option
  3. A horizontal line option
  4. Stylized formatting drop-down
  5. Better error messaging, and an updated FAQ

The team has also done a lot of work streamlining our HTML permissions on the back end.  If you find anything that looks off with your permissions or with the editor, please report below! 


If anyone else comes here because you thought the "Code Block" format style had gone away .... clear your browser cache to get it back.

I have a backlog of things I wanted to comment on in my inbox.  At first, I was going to say that I didn't notice much different with the new editor.

Now, I believe something may be broken with mine @Monique vdB:


I would love to play with all the fancy new pieces, but sadly I don't have them :(

Any help you can offer would be much appreciated!

Thank you! 

@Jimmy Seddon you definitely have the new editor (I see the strikethrough and horizontal line buttons). 

Currently you can only see the HTML and Rich Text tabs if you're creating* a post, not in comments or replies. Our next update will address this and also add tables! 

*Or editing a comment; if you go into edit mode then the tabs appear.

Thank you for clearing that up @Monique vdB!  I do see that on create.  For a second I thought I was in a broken limbo state.
