New Features!

Stale Content Audit Plugin

The Stale Content Audit plugin is a custom tool that scans the site for pages and posts with content that hasn’t been updated in 6 months, and is considered “stale”. Site users will receive an report from the plugin periodically that catalogs the content which needs to be updated or generally addressed across all of the sites they currently or previously had access to edit. That email includes basic data about what the audit generated for them, a CSV file for that data, and a link to an page in WordPress where they can view and interact with the data. Site Administrators will receive an additional CSV file with the data for all stale content across the site. If a user is the lead site administrator, they receive an additional report of all stale pages for all users across that site.

Check Out the New Icon Library!

A new feature for Apollo 2 is the addition of a library of 5,000+ icons that can be used to add simple imagery to your site. The icon library can be viewed through the “Icon” tab for: Cards block and Buttons block. View examples of icons in cards and buttons.


The New Buttons Block Takes the Stage

A new block has been released by Web Services that makes the addition of buttons to your site much simpler! With the Buttons block, you can add one or more buttons to your site without the need to use HTML code. Simply select the “Buttons” block from the Add Block tool and begin creating your buttons. Options include alignment for left, right, and center, and the option to display buttons in a 1-3 column format, and three color options: bright blue, gray blue, and orange. Buttons also support the use of an icon from the icon library with each button for simple, and complimentary imagery for your buttons. View Buttons using the new icon library!
