    Known Issues

    There are the following known issues with version 5.6.2 of Cohesion:

    • Notice appearing when editing elements on a Layout Canvas

      When editing elements on a layout canvas, there is an intermittent Drupal watchdog error thrown “Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in Drupal\schemata_json_schema\Encoder\JsonSchemaEncoder->supportsEncoding()”

      This is a known issue with the Schemata module. See: for more details. 

    • Support for embed media plugins in Cohesion WYSIWYG
      Attempting to embed entities into a Cohesion WYSIWYGs results in a console error.

      This issue will be resolved in version 5.7.0 of Cohesion.

    Bug fixes

    Here's what bug fixes this release includes:

    Canvas preview pop out window

    Fixed an issue that prevented the Canvas Preview working when opened in a new window. 

    Elements inside dropzones being lost when importing templates and components

    Fixed an issue where an element inside a dropzone was being removed from a template or component layout canvas when importing an entity that was new to the local site. 

    Enabling Restful on update

    The Restful web services module is now enabled as part of an update script. This only affects websites being upgraded from versions prior to 5.6.0 and the rest module does not need to be enabled manually before upgrading.

    Helpers not showing in the sidebar browser

    Fixed a bug where helpers containing components with drop zones were not showing in the list of helper in the sidebar browser.

    Setting Cohesion API and organization keys in settings.php

    Fixed a bug where Cohesion configuration settings could not be set in environment settings files. See for more details. 

    Video controls assets not showing

    Fixed a bug where the video controls assets were not loading correctly from the right path. 

    XSS validation applying to component fields

    Fixed an issue where the XSS validation was sometimes being applied to component form field data. This is now fixed so XSS validation only applied to elements settings.
