SilverStripe 4

Anton Smith

SilverStripe 4 has been out in the wild for a number of months now and the development team at Firebrand have adopted it for all new projects.

This release of SilverStripe is a long term release (or LTS), which means that SilverStripe Ltd will be delivering security updates through to mid 2021. This is great for ensuring the longevity of your website and maintaining peace of mind that your website will remain secure.

There are some exciting features packed into SilverStripe 4, these include:

  • A streamlined look and feel in the CMS.
  • The file management area has been completely overhauled with a new interface that is very intuitive and easy to use.
  • A new 'Campaign' mode, which allows you to create and group content together to be released at once.
  • Files uploaded to the CMS are automatically versioned, allowing you to see a working history for each file.
  • The main areas of the CMS are now responsive - allowing users to manage content on their smartphones or tablets when they are away from their desktop.
  • Content blocks allow you to assign the same segments of content in multiple areas of your website.

The best feature by far (in our opinion) is that SilverStripe 4 is much quicker than its predecessor, allowing for a richer and faster user experience. Talk to our team about the possibilities of SilverStripe 4 and how your site could benefit by emailing hello@firebrand.nz
