BoomCMS v7.1 released

Albums make managing, sorting and using assets easier

Albums view

The asset manager has a whole new look. Albums, which have replaced tags as a way of grouping assets, are now the default view. But when you can't find what you need in your albums there's also preset albums, including all assets, assets without albums, all images, all documents, and all videos.

As part of of the new layout we've streamlined the asset manager toolbar.

View album assets

Select an album to view all the assets in the album. Assets can be easily added to the album from within the album view, either by selecting existing assets via the asset picker or by uploading new files. You can also set a title and optional description for the album, in a WYSIWYG environment of course.

Search for assets

The existing search functionality is still there when you need it. But with a cleaner layout it's easier to use and works much better on smaller screens, such as smartphones or tablets.
