Admin UI, Announcement, This week in Orchard

Position the modal over the navbar, fixing that two alerts are displayed in admin settings to reload the current tenant, and our Open-Source Orchard Core Extensions solution is updated to Orchard Core 1.7! Check out our post for the details!

Orchard Core updates

Position the modal over the navbar

In the admin UI of Orchard Core, we are using Bootstrap modals to add dialogs for lightboxes, user notifications, or other Orchard Core-specific content, like adding deployment steps to your deployment plan. We had a UI issue regarding the modals, meaning whenever there is a large modal, the modal shows up under the top navbar.

When a modal is open, it shows the most visible. It is fixed, and now, the modal is displaying before the navbar.

Two alerts are displayed in admin settings to reload the current tenant

Some pages in Orchard Core (like /Admin/Settings/email, /Admin/Settings/localization, /Admin/Settings/SecurityHeader, which pages contain settings that will reload your current tenant if you hit Save) display two identical warning alerts: The current tenant will be reloaded when the settings are saved.

Display warning alert twice

The problem is happening because the Settings_Wrapper__General wrapper is always injected for all settings regardless of the group ID, but we should only apply the wrapper when the group is "general". Here you can see that there's a new IsGeneralGroup method in the DefaultSiteSettingsDisplayDriver that checks whether the current group ID equals "general".
