We’re happy to share today that ExpressionEngine 7.3 is here, and it’s a packed release!
TLDR: ExpressionEngine 7.3 brings with it field groups in fluid fields, color-coded statuses in relationship fields, new CLI (Command Line Interface) commands for deployments, a publish prolet to enable creating entries on the front-end of your site, allowing upload directories to be used across MSM sites, configurable parameters for automatic URL titles on entries, as well as cloning of fields, statuses, categories, and channel layouts.
Field groups in Fluid Fields further elevates the content administration experience in ExpressionEngine, allowing you to more easily tie a predefined grouping of fields inside ExpressionEngine with components in your design system.
In version 7.3 the CLI (Command Line Interface) is also taking a large step forward with the addition of 8 new commands. The new commands are specifically designed to help with the process of deploying ExpressionEngine sites, as well as opening the door for additional automation in the management of ExpressionEngine sites.
Last year we rolled out the well-received Entry Cloning. In the 7.3 release, we’ve extended cloning across the control panel to now cover channel fields, channel layouts, member roles, and categories!
We’ve also expanded the template parser to support the ability to chain together multiple variable modifiers to be used on a single template variable. Add-ons can now also register their own variable modifiers. (Please note, a coilpack update is coming shortly that add’s support for this across Blade and Twig as well)
The relationship field now includes a status indicator that visually reflects the related entry’s status.
In addition to the above, there is much more to the ExpressionEngine 7.3 release. Check out the Change Log!
