We used to offer two kinds of Page list exports. One was an Excel spreadsheet and the other a simplified CSV version for processing via scripts. Unfortunately, on large projects, Excel exports become unwieldy both to generate and to use. Computers completely freezing up when opening a large spreadsheet in Excel is a serious issue that we addressed this month. The new system offers three options:
The two CSV exports are available to projects of any size.
Note that we don’t yet have an editor for this feature on the Dashboard. If you wish to give it a try, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The pages list can display important information of the folders and pages in the sidebar on the right. These tidbits, such as the Approximate page count in a folder can be invaluable for adjusting the scope of a project with a large amount of content. For example, the blog section can be as much as 60% of a site’s content. In such a case, it may be wise to exclude it to save costs for the site owner.
We received feedback that this feature is fairly unknown and as such isn’t used to its full potential. To combat that, we added it to the context menu too for easy access and better discoverability.
Our customary section of smaller improvements can’t be skipped this month either. There are almost a dozen of them this time:
*) at the end, the page/prefix selector is now automagically changed to prefix.
redirect_towere added to ignore query parameters for new projects. These parameters can be safely ignored as they don’t change the content of the page.
//. The example code now reflects that.
