Task 924 – Asset/Photo request forms for individual member groups
Create ability to send Photo and Asset request forms to owners of individual member groups. Previously, all requests were sent to a single chosen admin or admin group, however, these were broad-based settings for all member groups.
Administrators are now able to channel specific requests to specific member groups.
The following User Guide pages demonstrate the new settings:
User Story 754 – Batch “Publish/Unpublish” in the Asset library backoffice
Batch “Publishing/Unpublishing” was previously only available within the “Asset version” node.
The feature is now also available from the “Asset Folder” node, making it quicker and easier to reach more assets in the batching process.
User Story 915 – Image and Asset request form changes
Edit the image and asset request forms (and the accompanying automated email template messages) to reference that the duration period specified is also the time period that the requester is able to download the resolution sizes requested. After this time period, access to the additional image sizes or to download the asset will be retracted.
On the image request email that is sent to the Image Administrator to approve an image request, we have added a preview image of the image requested (this is available with/without watermark). Additionally, the “Usage Restrictions” property has been added to the email message, if use restrictions exist.
Add the “Image request type: Low/High” and “Duration” line values to the approved email template: Image Request Approved
Task 902 – Photo library image filetypes
The Photo library previously displayed the following images via the “.Core/Services/ImageService.cs” file:
jpg/jpeg, png, tif/tiff, svg, bmp
The settings are now found in the “umbracoSettings.config” file and more easily editable.
We have also extended the formats to include:
jpg/jpeg, png, tif/tiff, svg, bmp, gif, webp, emf^, wmf^
^ some frontend display issues
Bug 930 – Unpublished or Deleted Categories that contain images crash image module
When Photo Categories, that are assigned to an image, are either Unpublished or Deleted (e.g. in Recycle Bin), the Photo library frontend displays an error screen. – [fixed]
Bug 933 – Photo & Asset category URL YSOD errors
If a category selection is made from the top Photo/Asset library menu, the URL displays the category number, e.g. ~/photo-library/?category=34745
If a user bookmarks this page, then the category is deleted, attempting to revisit the page via the bookmark returns an error page. – [fixed]
Task 905 – Backoffice welcome dashboard version edit
Update version task list with latest changes. – [complete]
