  • Fixed layout issues with images in List View

  • Fixed issue where clicking 'Add post' multiple times sometimes resulted in the post being added multiple times
  • Fixed minor issues and improved the way Grammarly works with ContentCal whilst using Safari for macOS
  • Various 'under the hood' fixes and improvements

That's all for now. Happy Friday!

Fix for Bitly link issues

We've fixed the issues caused when pasting in links that were previously added to ContentCal. If you experienced this issue, please ensure you update to V1.22 by refreshing your page when in ContentCal.
