This week, Built.io introduces significant enhancements to Built.io Contentstack that give you greater control over your content. Let’s quickly look at what’s new in this release.
Default URL Pattern
Build Powerful, SEO-friendly URLs
The all new ‘Default URL Pattern’ feature lets you standardize the URL pattern for pages of your website. This is a common use case for the majority of our customers when building out a blog or a product catalog. You can define a URL pattern of your choice while creating/editing a content type. Once this is determined, Built.io Contentstack automatically generates the URL every time you create an entry.
For instance, if you decide the pattern to be www.yourdomain.com/:title, the auto-generated URL for your next post will be www.yourdomain.com/my-first-post.
You can include date, title, custom text, or a combination of any of these elements in the URLs. This gives you the flexibility to create meaningful, reader-friendly, and beautiful URLs that rate high on SEO parameters.Read the docs to get started with this feature.
Default Value for a Field
Save time and effort
While creating content types, you can set a default value for a field. The next time you create an entry, you do not have to manually enter a value for that field. It will, by default, contain the specified value. This reduces the time and effort spent entering the same data every time for a field. Content managers also maintain the ability to overwrite the preset value without having to make a request to development.
Field data at a glance
By default, the entries page displays basic info about each entry (such as title, created at, publish status, and version) in separate columns. We have added a new feature that lets you add data columns to display the fields’ data of each entry. This helps you get a quick overview of the data of all the fields in a particular content type.
Apart from introducing these new features, we have made several UI enhancements and bug fixes.
We would love to know your thoughts on these new features and improvements. You can post your comments below, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
