April 2022 – Monthly Changelog

New Features:

  • We created a new Advanced Setting called “Ampify Account Id”. This setting will be used on sites that are utilizing the Ampify.io integration seen HERE
  • We created a new Web Page setting called “Exclude from Sitemap” for “Custom Widget as a Web Page” pages. Enabling this setting will exclude the page from the sitemap when it is next generated.
  • We created a new Web Page setting called “Select Content Type (advanced)”. This setting allows the Admin to select the content type that should be returned by the server when the page is loaded. This setting is only available for web pages with the Page Type “Custom Widget as a Web Page”.
  • We created a new Advanced Setting called “Dynamic Category Filter – Broad Match” which impacts the behavior of the “Dynamic Category Filter: Add-On. Enabling this setting (it is enabled by default) will return members listed in ANY of the categories selected in the filter. Disabling this setting will only return members listed in ALL of the selected categories.
  • We created a new Advanced Setting called “Front-End Optimization: Enable Resource Delivery via CDN”. Enabling this setting will cause default CSS and Javascript files to be delivered via our internal “optimizecdn.com” CDN, powered by Cloudflare.

    We also added the “Front-End Optimization: Use Content Delivery Network (CDN) for Images” Advanced Setting. Adding an imagekit.io URL for a website to this setting cause all images on the site to be optimized and delivered via Imagekit.

    Each of these settings will help to reduce the load time of pages and increase scores in 3rd party tools like GTMetrix and Google Pagespeed. Please see the article HERE for more information.
  • We created a new CSS class called “readonly”. This class will grey out any form field it is applied to and set the cursor pointer to “not allowed”.
  • We released the File Upload for Forms Add-On – please see this article for more information.
  • We created a new set of settings for the Private Member Chat Add-On.
  • Enabling the “Send Email Notification to Admin When Private Chat Reported?” setting will cause the system to send an email notification to the Admin when a member flags / reports a private chat.
  • Enabling the “Send Copy of Email to Default Website Email Address” setting will cause the system to send a copy of member private chat notification emails to the Admin as well.
  • On sites that have the Private Member Chat Messages Add-On can find these settings in the Admin >> General Settings >> Integrations tab.
