Bug Fixes

  • There was previously a bug that would occasionally duplicate a new page when submitted - this has been fixed.
  • There was previously a bug with the slide preview (within the Slideshow module) where the slide preview would not show - this has been fixed.
  • There was previously a bug with the scaling of slides within the Slideshow - this has been fixed to allow for correct scaling/display of slides.
