Butter Updates

Advanced Search for Pages, Collapsible Components, Easy Image Editing and New Dashboard!

Posted by Jake Lumetta on September 7, 2020

We're really excited to tell you all about what we've been working on. We have some really great enhancements that we just shipped out in the last month. So, we'll take you through them and provide you with some quick detail below: 

Advanced Search for Pages

It allows you to filter through a lot of content - thousands and even tens of thousands of pages of content, and precisely and quickly narrow down to just the pages you are looking for.

If you have been using our pages and our page type capability, what you are able to do now is to narrow down your search by filtering the results using any of these fields:

  • Short Text Field
  • Long Text Field
  • Reference Field
  • Date Field
  • Dropdown Field
  • Media Field
  • Checkbox Field
  • Number Field

Let's say, you're doing a podcast and you have hundreds and hundreds of episodes and you want too narrow down to a specific set of episodes or a specific episode. So now what you can do is within your "Podcast" page type, you can now filter by all of the fields or properties of a podcast.


Collapsable Components UX

We've talked about Components a lot in recent months. We've been spending a lot of time working on them and they have been very well received - Thank you!

Components are powerful and sophisticated,so if you have a really detailed component with a lot of fields in it, visually, they can get quite long. And so, we're excited to keep on improving them and what we've done is when you click on a component, you can collapse it into a very concise view. You can also do this on the component picker level.


Another nice enhancement we did is making it a lot easier to reorder components. You now simply have to click on the up or down arrows to move an entire component on your list.

Media Field Controls

Now, whenever you upload an image into a blog post, page, or collection, you can edit it immediately using our Powerful Media Editor. We've enhanced the controls available below the image field so you can easily replace an image, download it or edit it.


New Home Dashboard

Our dashboard has gotten some much needed TLC and now it's really awesome! When you log in, at the top, you will now get a product tour from your truly. You will see three high-level overview videos, but we encourage you to click in and check out the full ButterCMS Demo where we take you really in-depth through the entire butterCMS product.

The area below is more developer-focused and is all about getting ButterCMS integrated into your application. We show you some important information like your API token and give you quick and easy access to all the different guides that we support for every technology and framework out there.


And then at the very bottom, we have quick, easy access for you to invite your team. There's also a section where you can check out all the latest product updates from Butter and stay up-to-date on what we've been working on. You will also see a content modeling basics section that links to some of our knowledge base articles that give you some really good in-depth guides on how to do various things within Butter as far as content modeling.


As always, thanks for being a part of the ButterCMS community!
