2sxc 8.9 with Very Rich Text (Inner Content 2), Item-Delete and more

We just released 2sxc 8.9 with 3 important features.

Very Rich Text (Inner Content 2)

This feature allows user to add content-blocks (both Apps and Content-Items) into a WYSIWYG rich-text field. It then generates a placeholder, which afterwards can be populated with an App or a content-block. This looks as follows in the WYSIWYG: 

Afterwards the user will be able to add a component in the normal edit-mode, like this: 

This will make sophisticated content like Blogs or News-Apps even more fun!

You can read about implementing this in this tutorial, the Concept-Wiki and review the Razor API

Item-Delete Button in the Toolbar

When people use 2sxc to create data oriented apps (like showing lists of items as if they were in table) there was often the request that the delete button would be helpful. So far we had ommited it, because the normal remove button does something different, and we wanted to prevent editors from confusing the two. Now we implemented it. 

You can either have it as a standalone button (action: "delete") or combined with he full toolbar - instructions are found in the wiki

Including JS / CSS at the End of the Page

This is now supported, which allows you to create solutions which have faster above-the-fold-rendering, giving you more points in the Google-Speed Test.  To implement this, use the data-enablepotimizations as before, but you can now also specify if it should go into the head, body, or bottom. Check out the documentation on Template Assets in the wiki
