  • Improved Filter Query

    Changes in: api |Permalink

    The parameter filter_query of the delivery api has been improved to check for empty values.

    Nested queries are now possible for all filter query types. To access nested attributes you need to use a point as path separator. Examples: seo.description, body.0.teaser_header

    Changes in operators

    1. gt-int, gt-int: When doing a greater than or less than query it no longer triggers an error when there are non numeric values in the content entries.
    2. in: When providing an empty string then the api returns all fields that have empty strings or null values.

  • Field level translations

    Changes in: app api mapi |Permalink

    In the past the only way of creating multi-language content was through a multi tree folder structure. As this still is a good practise for a lot of our customers we also got a lot of feedback from customers that have a different requirement.

    That’s why we now offer an additional way to manage multiple languages in Storyblok.

    Field level translations

    Introducing “Field Level Translations”

    With “Field Level Translations” you can now store multi-language content on the field level. This means you only need one content tree. A single tree stores each translation as a property under the same content item.

    As long as your site content is very similar from one language to another, this is the best option. You will have fewer pages to manage and the system takes care of serving the correct language automatically.

    Highlights about this new feature:

    • Manage all your content under a single content tree
    • Decide for each individual field if you want to activate translation
    • Easily copy the default language value to the translation
    • Quick-Jump to Google Translate

    Read more at our documentation about internationalization.


  • First published at field

    Changes in: api app mapi |Permalink

    The new field “first_published_at” for getting information about the date when an item has been published the first time has been added.

    First published date


  • Backups on your S3 bucket

    Changes in: app mapi |Permalink

    For additional security you can now setup backups of your content and the component definitions. The only thing you need is an Amazon AWS account. After installing the app under the Apps section you can configure the automatic daily backups or trigger a backup manually.

    Storyblok automatic backup

    Automatic backup

    The automatic backup runs every day at 1:00 GMT and will create a zip file on your Amazon AWS S3 bucket.

    Restoring

    You can restore a backup via the S3 link on the existing space or on a new one.

    What is included in the backup?

    The backup file contains stories (content), releases, scheduled content and component definitions.

    How to setup?

    Please read the setup instruction at the documentation area.


  • Branches and Releases

    Changes in: app api mapi |Permalink

    We are proud to announce a new feature we have been working on a very long time and we think it will be very useful for your bigger projects.

    What are releases for?

    Imagine you want to promote a new collection of sunglasses. You change a teaser on your homepage, add the products to the product overview and create a news entry of the new collection. In the past you would need to remember which content items you changed and publish each item separately. Here comes Storyblok’s “Releases” feature into the play. Prepare all the changes in a release and then publish them with one click or at a specific date.

    Content staging releases headless CMS

    What are branches for?

    With Storyblok’s branches you can setup a content staging workflow. A classical setup for this workflow is to have a staging branch for review and testing and a production branch for your live content. But you can also setup more branches if required.

    Branches, with the exception of “Preview”, are read only and each of the branch can have multiple releases and api-keys.

    Example: In the following diagram you can see that “Release 3” only exists in the default “Preview” branch and can then be deployed on “Live” before being tested on the “Staging” branch.

    How to activate this feature?

    Currently the releases and branches functionality is only available for the “Premium” plans. But if you want to try it out please contact us via the onsite chat and we will activate a trial for you.


  • RTL support

    Changes in: app |Permalink

    Storyblok now supports RTL (Right to left) for the field types “Text”, “Textarea” and “Markdown”. It can be configured in the schema definition of the field type with the checkbox “Enable RTL”.

    RTE Support


  • Rate limit Management-Api

    Changes in: mapi |Permalink

    The management api has been rate limited to 3 requests per second for users on the free plan and 6 requests per second for other users.

    Customers using Storyblok’s official nodejs SDK “storyblok-js-client” are not affected by this change as the module already handles throttling the requests to the right level.


  • Open asset from field

    Changes in: app |Permalink

    For all of you that wanted to access linked assets with one click in the asset and mutli asset fields - you can now do that - simply click on the file-name and open it in a new tab.

    Visual editor


  • Improved Asset Manager

    Changes in: app mapi |Permalink

    In the past managing assets was limited to a basic flat folder structure. Now you can nest folders to organize your assets in a better way. Just create the folders you need and drag and drop them inside each other to create a tree.

    What is also brand new in the asset manager is the list view and sorting options. The multi-select bulk actions makes it easy to move around multiple assets at once.

    New Asset Manager


  • Polished Create and Duplicate Space

    Changes in: app |Permalink

    We always listen to feedback and try to improve our platform for you. One feedback that bothered many of you was the unpolished create new space dialog and the hidden features like duplicating a whole space with few clicks, therefore we’ve now refreshed that section.

    New create new space


  • Flow and UI Improvements

    Changes in: app |Permalink

    We’ve updated the entry flow into editing as suggested by many feedback we received from you.

    Compose as first focus

    If you now enter a content entry we will directly focus the Compose mode instead of the left sidebar allowing you to directly start editing and creating content.

    First Spot for Compose mode

    Everything that was previously available in the left sidebar and the Edit Navigation is now available on a separate tab called Config allowing you to configure every attribute of the current story in one place.

    Configure

    Improved Form Only mode

    You can switch between the Editmode Visual and Form only to disable and enable the visual composer which is perfect if you only need a flat content structure or you do not have a website but only an app to display your entries. To make it more usable for you we’ve updated many details that may have caught you off guard in the past - but shouldn’t in the future!

  • Improved Blocks UI

    UI refreshment for the blocks type in Compose and in Form Only mode.

  • Improved Version History

    Changes in: app api mapi |Permalink

    The version history got a lot of improvements. Versions are now saved for every change in the draft version and the changes are visible in a GIT-like log right left to the save button. The best of all: It’s available for all plans.

  • Increased Contrast for tutorials

    Changes in: website |Permalink

    We’ve switched from a light grey to a darker - more vs-code like (and higher contrast) version for our code blocks to increase the contrast and readability.
