Three is a crowd, (Wagtail) 4 is a party!

Last August saw the release of version 4.0 of the Wagtail CMS. Version 4.1, a "long term support" release, dropped in November. In this blog post, we'll take a quick look at some of the new features.

Live preview

While editing, you see a preview of what your page will look like:

The headers in the page can be shown wile editing, showing an overview (table of contents) of the entire document:

Workflow in snippets

"Snippets" (re-usable parts of a page) now also can have "Draft" status. They can also be revisioned, and previewed.

The rich text editor

The richt text editor is quicker and easier to work with.

  • Create links by selecting text and pasting (Ctrl-V) a URL on it.
  • Start a block with a slash ‘/’ to open the palette and change the text format.
  • Or use hotkeys to create formatting. For example: Ctrl-Alt-2 creates an H2 header.
