Below are all the patches, updates and improvements made to the UBCMS in 2019.



  • Dynamic List: Searches using a dynamic list component now do "stemming" to allow some fuzzy matching. For example, searching for "student" will now find pages with the word "students" and vice-verse.
  • Download: The download component now escapes special characters (like "#") in the name of the file. Previously some characters made the download not work.
  • Favicon: The UB "favicon.ico" icon shown in browser tabs and bookmarks has been updated to not have jagged edges in some situations.
  • Search: Fixed a bug that allowed horizontal scrolling on UBCMS search results pages.


  • Video (Youtube): Fixed broken settings (auto-play and loop) and removed others that Youtube no longer supports.
  • Button: Added yellow color choice.
  • Password Protected Published Pages: group memberships were not updated from LDAP after a user's first login, but are now continuously refreshed from LDAP.



  • Shared Content: Title components no longer move below float left/right elements on the page.
  • Social Button: Added TikTok icon as a built-in choice.
  • Jumbo Top Navigation: Improved formatting of flex modules with no title and embedded links.
  • Formstack: Fixed problems with Previous/Next buttons in forms due to jQuery incompatibility.  



  • Dispatcher Flush Triggers: An error preventing timely updates when publishing shared content and some site home pages has been fixed.
  • Social Metadata: Social <meta> tags added from the Social tab in page properties have been updated to keep in line with Facebook and Twitter recommendations. Also, alt text for social images is a new option for the page.
  • Flex Module: Flex Modules with only button content (no title, image, text, list) now show again as they did before the 6.5 upgrade.
  • Faces and Voices Template: An error preventing newly-created Faces and Voices shared content pages has been fixed.
  • Automatic sorting in areas such as /content/www has been fixed.
  • Fixed several minor HTML and CSS validation issues.



  • Dynamic List: Fixed host page setting not working on dynamic lists.
  • Profile Pages: Fixed column control not working on some profile pages.
  • Search Results: Fixed an issue where sort drop-down could be cut off behind the header on very short pages.
  • Top Navigation: Fixed hover animation in Safari.
