Release Notes: Discontinued and deprecated features in Management Server 16.0 SP1

OpenText Web Site Management Server is a server application that provides an editorial workspace for editors, publishing functions for web pages, and management functions for large websites in the intranets and internet.

The following features have been discontinued in this release:

Element Type Background has been removed

Management Server 16 does not support the Background element anymore. It is recommended to use an Image or Media element instead.
When upgrading a project to Management Server 16, existing Background elements are converted to Media elements, maintaining all settings. The Media element is restricted to allow only the following file types: jpg;jpeg;gif;png;bmp. All templates are checked and usage of the background is converted to having the full attribute (background="<%element%>") in the source code at the same position where the Background element was.

Template export and import only within same Management Server version

The import of Template files (rdtp files) is only supported for rdtp files that have been exported within the same Service Pack version level, like 16.0.0.x. Example: An rdtp file from Management Server can be imported into Management Server, but not into Management Server

Microsoft Office files as text content for text elements not supported anymore

The upload of Microsoft Office files via drag and drop as text content for text elements is not supported anymore.

Asset attributes Printed, Encrypted, Linearized, Characters

The file attribute Printed (OFFICE) is not supported anymore in Asset Manager and Asset Folder. The Asset Folder does not support the file attributes Encrypted (PDF), Linearized (PDF), and Characters (OFFICE).

Sitemap element deprecated

The structure element type sitemap is deprecated and will be removed with the next major version. It is recommended to use the Navigation Manager and RenderTags for displaying a site map.

File folder deprecated

The folder type File is deprecated and it is recommended to convert to Asset folders.

RAD Editor removed

As announced with Management Server 11.2 SP2, the RAD Text Editor has been removed with Management Server 16.0.
