Content managers not only create new content, they also have to maintain and optimise existing content. While the process of content creation requires human creativity (at least up to the point where artificial intelligence will surpass us), maintenance and optimisation can be considerably facilitated with the help of the right tools. Your CMS should therefore be able to support you in preventing any invalid links on your online platform. As of Gentics CMS Release 5.35, a new custom tool is available for just that purpose – the link checker.
Gentics CMS 5.35 “Alex” for developers and firstname.lastname@example.org, 3.12.2019
We would like to point out that Release 5.35 “Alex” must not be confused with Release 5.27 “Alexander”. Our rules on release names regrettably do not consider the issue of distinctiveness. ;-) Nevertheless, both 2019’s Alex as well as 2017’s Alexander have a strong focus on topics concerning the new user interface. But don’t worry, there is much more in Alex than just the UI! Here is an overview of the most important changes in this release with regard to developers and administrators.
