Set Default Request Types to help users avoid dead ends in search

If a user’s search query doesn’t turn up results, now you can set a Default Request that directs them to a request type of your choosing — wherever they’re most likely to get the help they need.

Defaults appear when users:

  • encounter an empty search result
  • lack permission to view a page
  • end up on a “content not found” page if the content has been moved, for example

Catch users’ attention with a fresh set of customizable announcement banners

Admins have three varieties of announcement banners to display to users top-of-page: warning, alert and info. Version 3.1 introduces a new, cleaner look for all three. 

Standard colors are red, pink and white, respectively, but you can customize them with CSS to match your site’s color profile.
