Link your publications even more efficiently
The publication link is the super-fast way to link from one publication to another. This feature is often used to refer to topics, authors, or as "read more" functionality.
Today's update makes it possible to determine the display of this field in a publication. You can show a link field as a pop-up, or display this field as an autosuggest, and as checkboxes/radio buttons. All three options have their own character:
- Pop up. This function, as we already offer it, can be used if you want to search for specific publications. In the pop-up, you can search for publications, filter by assignee or model, and scroll through all search results.
- Autosuggest. You can use the autosuggest if you need a specific publication quickly, without having to search extensively. Start typing in your input field and the results will appear immediately.
- Checkboxes. This option is best used if you only have a limited set of publications to choose from. An example is a topic or author you want to refer to. When you have indicated a maximum of 1 in your model, the options will be shown as a radio button.
Another trick we added today is the click-through to the publication. From the pop-up, as well as from the autosuggest, or from the checkbox options you can easily click through to the publication you want to link.

Auto-complete your publication slugs with parent publications
From today, Prepr also offers the possibility to include linked parent publications in your slug construct. This is a huge asset for Prepr users who point through publication links to other publications in their Prepr account. Learn more about working with publication slugs.
Start using asset metadata (Exif)
For many Prepr users, the default asset titles are not sufficient, as many file names are indefinable. That's why Prepr offers the Exif integration to automatically add metadata (Exif) of the photo, video, audio, or document. Go to Integrations > General > Exif Integration to specify which Exif-data of the asset you want to use. You can choose to replace the title, description and/or author. Learn more about asset metadata.
A/B-test winner selection
Prepr A/B tests give you the power to perform A/B tests with your content in an easy-to-implement way. By A/B-testing your content frequently, you increase CTR and time spent. Zoom in on retrieved metrics and learn what content works best – or improve the content that needs tweaking.
Since today's update, it is possible to choose the version you want to continue with. This is typically the version with the best CTR, the winner. Switch off the A/B test option and choose your winner. Learn more about A/B-testing.

Filter on publication link fields
A new filter on the publication list has been added today. In the current situation, there are publication filters on the publication status, assignee, publish time, and tags. You can stack filters and search queries in order to narrow your search results effectively.
Today's update enables you to specify the filter on publication model. When there is a 'Publication link' model field in the selected model, an extra filter shows up in the publication list. This filter shows all publications that are linked to in this model.
Example: "Filter all articles by author Gérard Vue"
You have created an 'Article' model with a publication link field to the 'Author' model. By selecting the model filter with 'Article' a new filter on 'Author' is made visible, containing all publications of the 'Author' model.
So now you are able to filter all publications with the 'Article' model, where the author is set on a specific author.
Nofollow tags in publication editor
Today's update contains an improvement in Search Engine Optimization. It is now possible to add nofollow HTML tags to links in the text editor.
Nofollow links are links with a rel=”nofollow” HTML tag applied to them. The nofollow tag tells search engines to ignore that link. Because nofollow links do not pass PageRank they likely don’t impact search engine rankings.

Select all days in schedule
A small update today improves the usability in the Prepr schedules. When you want to schedule a program on all days of the week, you can now click on 'Days'. All days of the week are then selected. As simple as that!
Publication elements as predefined publication fields
Custom publication elements have been available for a long time in Prepr as a way to define your elements in the drag-and-drop editor. And now, these custom elements can also be used as a standard field in a content model. This allows you to define your content models even better, gives you more control over validation, and lets you retrieve data in a more structured way through the API.
