New improved features have now been released to your HQi content management system. If you would like more information about these features or would like to request a demo please contact

As well as the below we’ve also got some exciting news regarding a Newsroom App for iOS and Android. If you are interested in testing the app, please feel free to get in touch via

Keywords for Newsroom

We’ve introduced Keywords for Newsroom so now you can set specific keywords and then tailor how announcements that use that keyword in their title will be released.

For example, you may wish to set a keyword named “Presentation”, and send any announcements that use the keyword to go directly to the presentations page of your website, a specific subscriber group and social media channels.

Homepage Customisation

Homepage customisation is where you can make text and image changes to the home page of your site. We have now moved the link to the content management section in HQi and you’ll now see the link appear under this module.

Please note this may not appear on older website builds. To request this feature please contact

Cleaner URLS

Our new clear URL’s are much more easily read and do not contain any query strings or URL parameters unless completely necessary. Clean URLs are preferred by people, and it just so happens that search engines prefer them as well. Keywords in URLs are, often, used to identify the relevance of a page when a search for a particular keyword is performed. However, it is not generally recommended to stuff keywords in your URLs for SEO purposes.

Links to PDF documents on Social Media

Some pdf links were showing errors when shared on social media. We now have additional settings in place to change how these links are generated which will help resolve the issue. If you see that your announcements are not sharing nicely on social media please email with the details.

Improved Foreign Language Sites

We have improved behind the scene features which now makes our foreign language sites even more effective and user friendly. Please see the following samples:

– Australian domain:
– Japanese domain:
– China:

Option to make PDF Icons clickable

On Listed Pages, you will find it’s now simpler by opening PDF files by clicking on PDF Icons, if enabled in your content management system.

Improved Showcase Feature design/layouts and functionality

Displaying Showcase list pages now uses an improved view and provides you with the flexibility to sort these either in alphanumeric, alphabetic or showcase name order. It makes it easier for viewers to locate what they are after, check out the options in HQI as an example below:

Previous / Next links in list page archives

There is now a setting in the list page properties to determine whether to display “previous”, “next” link in page navigation. Previously we have only ever included pagination.

Newsroom WordPress Feeds can now use the featured image

WordPress blog posts can now use the featured image from the WordPress article. In the WordPress post this is typically added in the bottom left of the post editor, but this can now be displayed in an IRM list page, although please note the list page will need to use display type “E”.

Improved Boardroom.Media feed

The ability to display extra information such as images from API integration in Newsroom. Please note the list page type must use type “E” in the list page settings.
