  • When displaying the next page button (if the amount of results is bigger than the configured results per page), it should show how many pages there are. Only show page number example ( 2/9 pages )


 

BOOSTING MORE RECENT CONTENT IN RELATED PAGES

Tagged article pages have "Related pages" area on the bottom of the page. There are lifted automatically other articles based on tags article page has. If page has a for example tag "Paper" as a first one Paper tagged articles should be lifted first. 

There has been need to boost the more recent content. Boosting should be done with the related content logic which is based on the tags and the order of tags but also the content shouldn't be too old. That is why a date of the article also matters. In the below example Pulp articles are lifted first because they are the newer ones compared to Paper article.

  • Anna-Leena has informed about spam email problem with forms in Yammer. If you haven't notice that before, read below message.

Episerver forms - sender's address issues

Dear all using Episerver forms,

We have noticed issues with Episerver forms: when using xxx@upm.com as a sender's address, the e-mails end up unfortunately to our spam. The reason is, that our spam filters see mails that come from xxx@upm.com and not from our own exchange server as mails coming from untrusted source.

Because of this we have registered a new domain.

If you have issues with form replies ending up to spam, please change the form-sender address to 

no-reply@upmwebsites.com

In case you need support, please contact Servicepoint.
