Matrix Requirements

Please note that the requirements for Squiz Matrix have changed. Refer to the Requirements for Matrix 5 for more information.

New Features

  • Feature #4195: Edit+ Editor Support in Administration Mode

    The Edit+ Editor, previously only available when using Edit+ for Squiz Matrix, is now available to use within the administration interface.

    This means that Squiz Plus customers who use Admin mode will have access to the full range of content editor features that were previously only available in Edit mode.
  • Feature  #164: New Administration Mode Interface 

    The back-end interface has been completely revamped with a new interface that is not only easier on the eyes, but one that is cleaner, more intuitive and a delight to navigate.
  • Feature #4882: The Lookup Settings Screen is Now Called the Paint Layouts Screen
  • Feature #2590: Warranty Key and Expiry Reminder Removal 

    Previously, Squiz Matrix used a warranty key system to reflect the status of a client's product, as reflected in their Service Level Agreement.

    Due to the introduction of Squiz Plus and improved internal processes, we are able to more easily manage these dates and expiry times, even where a client's warranty covers products other than just Squiz Matrix (e.g. Funnelback).

    As a result, the warranty key system within Squiz Matrix has been removed, along with the accompanying expiry reminder.
  • Feature #2579: Improved and Updated Squiz Matrix Password Hashing Algorithm 

    This feature replaces the hashing mechanism used within Squiz Matrix to either bcrypt() or SHA512 to generate the password hash.
  • Feature #3220: Support for PHP 5.1 and Postgresql 8.1 Dropped
  • Feature #4343: Marketo Integration Bridge  

    This feature introduces the new Marketo Bridge asset, allowing you to fully integrate with a Marketo service, allowing the system to collect user data through site interaction and submit this data to Marketo for analysis.

    Collected data can be leveraged to intelligently deliver the right content at the right time for your users on the web and in email communications.
  • Feature #679: Safely Move Squiz Matrix Around the File System

    The installation folder of your system can now be freely moved to another file system location by configuring your web server to point to a new location. As a result, the system_move_update.php script is no longer required and has been removed.
  • Feature #3237: Cache Manager Redesigned to be More Intuitive
  • Feature #5124: Developer Script Moved to a Separate Repo
  • Feature #4375: JS API: New Switch to Select All
  • Feature #1028: Password Prompt Removed for Backend Scripts
  • Feature #907: New Conditional  Content Rules 

    This feature introduces the new Conditions screen for Standard Page assets, that allows users to create and edit conditions. These conditions can then be implemented on the bodycopy containers of your asset via new Container Conditions settings. 

    Once conditions have been created on the Conditions screen of an asset, the Container Conditions settings will be available on its content containers. These settings allow you to select which conditions to use and also set up rules using AND and OR operators. Content will only be displayed on an asset if it meets the content conditions configured in these settings. 

    Additional previewing options allow you to view the content of your assets on the frontend under multiple conditions. These options allow you to test your assets and its condition rules, and are also useful in aiding marketing techniques, such as A/B and multivariate testing.
