[PARTIALLY IMPLEMENTED] Cloud UI improvement requests

I’m new to Squidex. I looked at lots of different Headless CMS’s to host my legal help chatbot content; and after a short dalliance with Kontent.ai I’ve settled on Squidex and my staff are very much enjoying it — thank you!

There are some things about the Cloud UI that are causing us some difficulty, or at least quite a lot of extra time:

  • In the item list (Contents) for a schema, I can’t ctrl+click / cmd+click to open a content item in a new window. Often I want to do this because I know a few different items are going to need tweaking at once, or because I want to make sure the content of one item is consistent with that of the others.
  • When I’m in Edit Content, and return to the Contents list, the list reloads entirely, and forgets any search, filter, or sorting applied. This feels really inefficient!
  • The UI doesn’t let me search for certain characters, which I’d like to be able to:

Thanks a lot for your great software!

Thank you very much:

I don’t understand this to be honest.

Yes, this sucks, thats true.

The UI doesn’t let me search for certain characters, which I’d like to be able to:

Can you give me an example? I am not getting it. The search is a full text search, so it is searching for words or stems, a character search is really inefficient for large data sets.

I have fixed point #1 now, but it is not deployed yet.

Thanks for your quick reply, Sebastian, and sorry for my slow one.

Here’s a quick screen recording in which I attempt to demonstrate what I was trying to say in my first point: https://youtu.be/99bPYCtt8HI

An example of a string I’d like to be able to search for in an ideal world is “[QR” or “[QR:*]”. My schema includes a free text item that can include some custom syntax in square brackets to represent various elements (buttons etc) within my chatbot app. E.g. I represent images as [Image: https://i.imgur.com/1AtZnxi.jpg]. But it’s not a very important thing for me; just convenience.

Thanks for the video. I have already implemented it. The problem is that the content list is a table, not a link. Therefore CTRL+Click is not supported by the browser directly.

Sorry Sebastian, I thought that was the part you were not able to understand.
