3.x release


Released on October 9, 2023.

In this release, we fixed a bug that caused an error when i18n was enabled.

  • LIVECOPY-416 LiveCopyMultiSiteI18nAuthoringSupport causes an error when opening apps


Released on September 26, 2023.

This bug-fixing release solves the issue where the copies contained an extra node instead of being created with the same structure.

  • LIVECOPY-411 Wrong structure created when pushing to more than one copy


Released on August 21, 2023.

This is a bug-fixing release to fix an issue where despite the Automatic Relink being chosen, the internal links inside the switchable link were relinked to the master instead of the copy. Another issue was a bug that was showing a misleading soft lock notification once a user added a component.

  • LIVECOPY-406 Livecopy triggers missleading content soft lock notification

  • LIVECOPY-408 Relink action doesn’t work for switchable field inside a complex structure


Released on July 5, 2023.

This is a bug-fixing release to resolve an issue that was preventing the changes on the child pages to be reflected when pushed from the master page.

  • LIVECOPY-383 Protecting component fields disables all child nodes from livecopy pushes


Released on October 18, 2022.

In this release, we have further improved the push functionality so that relinking and complex fields are handled better. Specifically, Live Copy 3.2.10 fully supports the protection of complex fields in separate internationalized live copies.


  • LIVECOPY-336 Pushing changes to copies doesn’t perform relinks correctly

  • LIVECOPY-335 Complex fields with Internalisation are not protected correctly

    Fields that were protected already remain protected in this new version of Live Copy. However, now you can take advantage of the new code for complex fields. If a complex field is protected already, first unprotect it and then protect it again to enable the new code. Remember that you must protect complex fields for all languages, for example, both on the English and German versions of the page.
  • LIVECOPY-310 Relink doesn’t work for compositeField, switchableField and MultiField fields


Released on August 18, 2022.

In this release, we have improved the push functionality so that even live copies moved out of the root will reflect changes made on the master.


  • LIVECOPY-317 Maintain push functionality when moving a Livecopy out of ROOT


Released on April 19, 2022.

This is primarily a bug fixing release with one improvement to make the relinking of pages easier when creating a live copy.

This bug fixing release also brings full compatibility with Magnolia 6.2.6 and the following improvement:

Protect fields per language

You can protect a field in one language and not another using the language switcher and then clicking on the protect field icon. For example if you want to protect the German version of a given field and not the English version, you switch to German and protect the field. When you switch back to English, the field is not protected.
