Presence Version 2020.2 Released  

Version 2020.2 of our Presence Content Management System (CMS) has been released. This release includes increased support for 301 Redirects, improved management of Emergency Alerts, a change to how Presence handles PDF files as well as a number of bugfixes and minor enhancements. 

Improved 301 Redirect

When creating a 301 Redirect, you are now able to create a wildcard redirect directly on the root of a site domain URL. For example, you can set a redirect for* to*. This will redirect any URL path on the Old Site URL to the same URL path on the New Site URL.

Paging Added for Manage Emergency Alerts

The Manage Alerts page within System Administration now supports paging. This will allow you to view all your current alerts as well as any expired alerts, no matter how many alerts have been created on the site.

Behavior Changed for PDFs

Based on user feedback, the behavior for PDF files has been changed. When you open a PDF file in Presence, the file will now be opened in a new browser tab instead of just being downloaded.


The Presence 2020.2 release also contains numerous bugfixes including fixing an styling issue that was impacting menus on some templates, and an issue where recurring events from an external feed were showing the current time as the start time  in some scenarios.
