AR5's Data Module is a display engine that powers a variety of on-page presentations for large datasets. Drag and drop a spreadsheet into AR5, and it will automatically generate AR5 records based on your data that you can then view, manage, and edit in place using our suite of records tools. You can also use data submitted by users through forms on your website. Once you've got your records, you're ready to show them off—from a simple table with search fields and sorting, to dynamic pages with images, links, and animations, the data module can do it all.
For page content you work with every day—text and images—AR5's section module allows you to adapt and experiment. It includes a full-featured WYSIWYG editor that lets you preview your content as you edit it, and its options panel contains controls for width, alignment, and styles that enable you to create sophisticated layouts and implement custom designs quickly and efficiently. A few clicks is all it takes to set up and preview a variety of high-quality presentations, so it's easy to find the right one every time. And when your content or design changes, edit-in-place makes updates a breeze. Put all that together with a platform that's automatically responsive, and you've got a website that's ready for anything.
The latest update to AR5 is now here, bringing with it a number of improvements to our suite of tools for front-end design. Themes have been expanded to include more types of page content, and you can now create and define custom module styles that you can apply, on the fly, to modules on the page. Let's take a closer look.
AR5 version 126.96.36.199, which is live now, expands and improves AR5's publication controls. With publication controls, you can determine what appears on your site and when. There are now two ways of controlling publication, the publish button and the publication dates, and they can be used for pages, modules, and form fields. Let's take a closer look.
These release notes take us through two updates. The first, version 188.8.131.52, includes a variety of under-the-hood changes that improve AR5's scalability. The other, version 184.108.40.206, is a smaller release that’s live now and includes some quality-of-life updates to records management for both forms and members. Let’s take a closer look at what’s new.
In this latest update to AR5, version 220.127.116.11, we've added a number of new controls to improve and complement our existing set of design-to-web features. The spotlight is on styles and layout today as we review what's new, what's improved, and how it all works. Let's take a look!
This update expands previews for back end modules to include all module types, so that you can see your changes as you save them. Also included is the new member directory module, which you can use to present member data on the front end. Rounding out the release are some other minor features and fixes.
In AR5, you can plan your website as you create it. With the pages index and page details view, you can build your website from the top down or from the bottom up—or do a little bit of both. AR5 is flexible enough that you can always feel confident trying out new things.

The Section module is the primary tool for putting content on a page in AR5, and it is by far the most-used module type. You can use it to add headings, images, and text to pages, and you can add hyperlinks to any of these elements via the Link wizard. Once a section has been assigned to a page, the Options panel provides several controls for fine-tuning style and reworking layout on the fly. By combining and arranging several sections on a page and specifying the look of each one independently, you can achieve sophisticated page layouts on your website that rival what you would expect from a traditional desktop publishing system.

To add an article to a journal, start by navigating to content > articles from the AR5 primary nav. On the articles page, open the filter panel by clicking the white disclosure arrow on the blue filter bar. You'll see a list of available journals. Select one or more journals to see articles in the table below. In the table, articles that are published will appear in blue, and unpublished articles will appear in grey. You can also select "unassigned" in the filter panel to see articles that aren't assigned to any journal.
