Dear Sitefinity customers and partners! We are excited to announce the release of Sitefinity 15.0. Below you can find details about what is included in this release.
Sitefinity 15.0 comes with a redesigned Dashboard page implemented in Angular. The new page provides a
better, sleeker and faster first touch with the Sitefinity application. It is enabled by default for both new and
The Dashboard is configured with a set of predefined widgets and it can be customized using the new page editor. The editing experience of the page is similar to that of .NET Core pages.
There are 7 predefined widgets that are already configured to serve a specific purpose. You can either use them directly or configure them to suit your needs:
The Most visited pages widget is new with Sitefinity 15.0. After setting up a connection with Sitefinity Insight, you can use this widget to quickly evaluate the most visited pages for the selected site.
There are 4 blank widgets that you can add to the Dashboard page and configure to suit your needs:
Out-of-the-box integration with Azure OpenAI Service is now available, which enables editors to efficiently optimize and personalize existing content to suit the needs and requirements of different personas. Content editors can do this by using AI tools straight from the WYSIWYG editor - without learning how to write prompts or the need to switch interfaces.
The set of AI services is available via a new AI menu in the content
editing toolbar of the text editor. This menu lets you generate, summarize, improve, or personalize text content
through guided dialogs.
In addition, the administrators can tweak the prompt that is sent to the AI service and optionally, add new actions to the AI dropdown menu.
New Sitefinity Integration Hub is now available, which enables organizations to connect Sitefinity with 1,000+
critical third-party systems and applications. The new Integration Hub is built on a leading iPaaS platform
that allows website administrators to create custom data connectivity and workflow automation scenarios using a
low-code/no-code visual designer.
Additionally, there are sample recipes available to integrate Sitefinity with Salesforce, RSS feeds, Google Calendar, and more.
The new implementation of A/B test, now available for .NET Core pages, provides the same functionality as for MVC pages, including multiple variations and segmented A/B tests.
A new .NET Core Document list widget is introduced that you use to display a list or a table of links to
documents, where each document or file can be downloaded.
You can select documents or files already uploaded into Sitefinity libraries or upload new ones. You can also filter and sort the selected list.
The .NET Core Document list widget also provides:
Тhe range of out-of-the-box content selectors for autogenerated widget designers is now extended with the addition of libraries and folders selector.
Out-of-the-box ability to configure the Content-Security-Policy header to further strengthen the defense of your project. Configure it with a few clicks in Advanced settings or apply full control over the header in the code of your .NET Core Renderer application.
The Site Sync module now syncs the revision history of content items and pages. In addition to the content versions, Sitefinity also syncs the users who have modified the items.
You can now choose whether scripts defined in the Script manager will be added to a page or not. Up until now, all
scripts would have been added to all pages. Using this option, you can choose for which pages the Script manager will
be enabled and for which it will be omitted.
This is useful, for example, for pages dealing with legal requirements imposed by GDPR, CPRA, or for pages with special security requirements.
The newly added .NET Core Section widgets have preselected padding S (small) as the default value for top and bottom. Margins are now included in the hover and click area of the .NET Core widgets. Easy accessibility of the Add widget button in some edge case situations.
Files uploaded when submitting a form, are now accessible for consumption outside Sitefinity CMS. The service
hook payload for form submission triggers is extended and includes the
properties, which can be used to access the uploaded files.
Sitefinity CMS now automatically reports visitors' interactions with embedded Vimeo videos to Sitefinity Insight. Your marketing team can then use this information to track their marketing goals and improve customer journeys.
With this release, we offer a free on-demand Sitefinity training: Web Security for Sitefinity Administrators. This lesson covers the administrator's tasks related to web security.
