  • CFGUI-140 Hide sites registry from definitions app

    Due to the technical complexity of site decorations and to eliminate redundancy, the sites registry has been removed from the Definitions app. To inspect registered site definitions, see either the site (Magnolia CE) or the multisite (Magnolia DX Core) module configuration in the Definitions app.

    However, in a future maintenance release of Magnolia, the sites registry will be restored.
