Sneak Peek eZ Platform 2.3, Scheduling

eZ Platform 2.3 is due end of September. Amit Golan Gutin, Product Marketing Manager at eZ Systems, takes a sneak peek into one of the improved features, scheduling changes on your website.

"Previously, the Content Scheduler Block was called the Schedule Block. We decided to rename this feature to avoid any confusion of its purpose and functionality.

The Content Scheduler Block is for the Page Builder. When placed on the page, the Content Scheduler Block allows the editor to schedule when and which content will appear and move in the block, whether that be a news headline, new marketing campaign, new product release, or anything time sensitive."

Feedback Requested

How can we avoid issues with Siteaccess settings on defaultValue() & defaultNull() usage?

"Currently in SiteAccess config system in eZ Platform, when out of the box bundled and thirdparty bundles define their own config which should be siteaccess aware, eZ Platform reuses Symfony's NodeBuilder system for allowing us to express the config we want to expose as siteaccess settings."

André Rømcke, VP Technical Services & Support at eZ Systems, poses the question: how can we improve DX and avoid this issues completely?

Read the full scope and explanation of these issues on our forum, and do leave feedback if you have an opinion on this!
