Whats New



  • Blog routing fix. Resolved issue which would cause some blog entries not to route correctly. (Especially old ones.)
    Blog url renaming not working
  • Case-insensitive comparisons for blog URL routing to avoid typos.

Why its important

We addressed 2 of the toughest concerns about Pulse head on- the lack of multi-word navigation and issues with blog links not working. This version protects your SEO. Not only did we fix an issue that affects some blog links, we improved the blog lookups to be more flexible- if either the blog ID or title is matched in the link, the blog will render. So, even you send out the link, and then change the blog title, your blog links work. And that means, SEO is preserved.

How to use multi-word navigation

Simply add a dash to your page names. For example, “About -Us” becomes “About Us”.

Going forward

We’re extremely excited to about Pulse and making it work well with Blocs. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming months.
