New Features

1. Audio Live Page

We keep making improvements to our media pages and navigation. With this release there will be an option to have Live Audio page, where your visitors can find current live stream, information about upcoming events and recorded past items. It will be possible to connect this page to Live Media Navigation.

You can keep link to Audio Content item from Media Audio navigation, or you can enable link to new Live Audio page: .

Enabling the Live Audio page can help you keep all of the links in the media navigation consistent (Live video is linked to a Live Video page, Live Audio is linked to a Live Audio page).

You can organize your Live Audio Page the same way, as is the case with Live Video page now:

  • it can have information about Upcoming events;
  • it can have links to recorded items.

If you're interested in this feature, please contact Pangea CC team.

2. You May Also Like, Based on Section

You May also Like widget helps keep users on site, improve engagement, and promote content items. However, it has simple structure and can only have several lines with content promo.

Given the popularity of the widget, we decided to provide you with a more sophisticated tool to improve user's retention:

You May Also Like, based on Section Functionality.

This feature allows the creation of special Sections, which can then be used as You May also Like for the Zone page and Articles, assigned to this Zone:

To make these settings on CMS level you need to:

  1. Create Section based You May Also Like
  2. Assign the Section Based You May Also Like to the Zone of your choosing.

Please note, that this new Section Based "You May Also Like" has priority before the regular "You May Also Like" widget. This means that if a Section Based You May Also Like is set up for a given Zone, the widget is not rendered on on any article in that particular zone.

However, it is possible to use both options: old widget and new section for different Zones on your site.

Section Based You may Also Like is available only for JavaScript versions of pages.

3. News Layout 1.1

5. Quest

Several releases ago we let our users have different result pages for quiz and share them in social networks.

In this release we developed Quest, based on Quiz:

  • You can create different groups of results;
  • Every answer in assigned to one of the groups - there are no correct or wrong answers, no ranges, we just count on users choice;
  • Based on the user's choice, system assigns him to one of the groups.

If you need to create Quest, please choose this option inside Quest editing tool:

After that you can add:

  • General information
  • Results

6. Save and Continue for Infographics

7. Newsletter PDF as an Attachment
