August 2018 – Monthly Changelog

New Features:

  • We converted some hard-coded text to Text Labels in the paid signup form when the One Click Social Login Add-On is active. New Label: continue_to_checkout.
  • The export files generated with the Member Export Data Add-On now include the “user_id” column.
  • We created a tool to restore the Autosuggest Settings to their defaults. In order to use this new feature navigates to the Admin >> Developers >> Autosuggest Settings there you can find a button next to the “Creates New Autosuggest Rules” button.
  • We added two new settings in order to control the display of the buttons used for the One Click Social Login Add-On on the login page and in the Member Dashboard. To use these new settings, navigate to Admin >> General Settings >> Integrations Tab.  Settings Name: Enable Google Login, Enable Facebook Login.  
  • We added the ability to show the Member Account Sidebar Menu across all Front-End pages when a Site Member is logged in. This feature is only available for mobile devices as a way to make a more convenient, app-like user experience.
  • The Main Menu icon and the Member Account Menu icon are now text labels when viewed on small screen sizes, making them easy to update to other Font Awesome icons or plain text if desired. New Text labels: mobile_main_menu_icon, mobile_profile_sidebar_icon.
  • Now the Bootstrap Theme – Start Date Picker and the Bootstrap Theme – End Date Picker can be used in any form as a way of only selecting a date (as opposed to a date and time).

  • We added the ability to show/hide the Profile Steps, Dashboard Progress Bar, Manage Listing and Account Listing sections of the Member Dashboard. These can be customized on the Product level, allowing members of different Products to have unique dashboard experiences. In order to use this new feature, navigate to the Admin >> Finance >> Manage Products >> Edit >> Additional Settings tab.
  • We added the ability to show/hide the Billing links in the Member Dashboard area. This will be helpful for sites that are non-profits or otherwise have no use for billing. In order to use this new feature, navigate to the Admin >> Finance >> Manage Products >> Edit >> Additional Settings tab.
  • We added support for making a Froala WYSIWYG field in the Form Builder required.

Enhancements / Fixes:

  • We updated the logic of the Autosuggest feature so only members that would also appear in search results for the same keyword will appear as suggestions.
  • We added the Past Due total on the Transaction History page to be a sum of all invoices with the status “Unpaid”.  Previously this figure was generated by summing all transactions processed on the site to date rather than the invoices, which Admins have more control over.
