Reminder: Changes here will affect only new apps created with the template. If you have already started your app using the template, you will not receive these updates in your existing apps.

If you have already started your app using the template, you will not automatically receive these updates into your existing app. You will need to manually bring them over into your existing apps if you deem them necessary. I have tried to provide enough explanation below to make this simple but please let me know if you need help.

  • Fixed signup issue where the "require email confirmation" functionality was not working correctly. I was made aware that switching on "require email confirmation" on specific roles in the OS - User Roles option set was not working correctly. Users who signed up were receiving the confirmation email but somehow their email address was being automatically confirmed without them doing anything. After investigating I discovered this was likely a timing issue with the way the initial signup workflow was running, and I eventually ended up refactoring the entire signup workflow to make it more robust. If you are running into this issue please watch this video to see how to update your signup/login workflows.

  • Simplified the menu option sets by consolidating the OS admin dashboard tabs into the main OS dashboard tabs option set. This should make it simpler to create multiple dashboards. All the sidebar menus now run off one option set and subtabs run off a second option set. There is a new option set called OS - App Locations which is a list of the menu locations within the app, this is used to decide which tabs to show where. For existing apps I wouldn't recommend trying to bring this change into your app, it's not necessary.

  • Fixed a bug which was redirecting logged out users to the email confirmation page There was a workflow in the 🖼️ Layout: Dashboard header reusable which would redirect users to the confirmation page if their email address had not been confirmed (i.e. they had not clicked the link in the confirmation email). This was incorrectly redirecting logged out users to the confirmation page. There was also no workflow generally redirecting logged out users away from the dashboard. To fix this I updated the redirect workflow to only occur when the user is logged in, and added another workflow to redirect the user to auth if they are logged out. For older versions of the boilerplate you will need to do the same: 1) In the Layout: Dashboard Header reusable on you will need to add "and the current user is logged in" to this workflow trigger's conditional. This will prevent it redirecting to that page. 2) You should also add another workflow "When user is logged out" with an action "Go to page... auth", which will then correctly redirect logged out users to the auth page.

  • Simplified the demo mode to make it less work to remove!

    Unfortunately to provide a Bubble template it must offer a demo preview mode. Obviously I don't want random people creating things in the database or making changes to test credentials. So there is now one user in the database - test@test.com - and a "demo login" button on the landing page which logs the tester in as test@test.com. There are a load of conditionals on various buttons which make them not clickable if the current user's email is test@test.com. You can remove these conditionals if you want but the point is you don't need to if you don't want to, it shouldn't affect your app (unless you have a user with the email test@test.com). See the updated READ ME FIRST for more information.

  • Moved the right sidebar into the table reusable elements rather than a shared one on the dashboard In the Table reusable elements (Classic rows, Image grid, Coloured grid, Calendar) I have moved the right sidebar to be within the reusable element itself. This makes it much less fiddly to customise the sidebar to show the information you need for each table. Previously the right sidebar was hidden on the dashboard and triggered with a URL parameter. This added extra complexity but at the time I thought it was the only way to do a full height sidebar. Thanks to some custom CSS it is now within the reusable itself.
