Enhancements / Fixes:

  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the “X” button from displaying in location search fields when the “Detect Visitor Locations” Add-On was activate on a Site.
  • We updated the “Private Member Chat” Add-On in order to make the name of the member shown in the chat linked to their profile page.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing members from adding a few specific zip / post codes as additional locations when using the “Multi-Location Listings” Add-On.
  • We fixed an issue with the “Export Member Data” Add-On which was causing export member files to be limited to 1.000 members in some cases.
  • We enhanced the logic of the Domain Manager feature in order to update all places where the old domain of the site was entered into static pages, menus, etc with the new domain of the site.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing events to display on the Events Calendar in some cases.
  • We implemented a set of minor updates for the “Admin Roles” feature in the Admin.
  • A Membership Plan being cloned or deleted will now be logged in the Activity Tracker in the Admin.
  • We updated the logic when a paid signup transaction fails. Previously, the system would create the member account, but set their status to “Past Due”. The new member would then sign in to their account to update their billing details and pay the pending invoice. Now, the system will not create the member account if the payment fails, but rather prompt the member to update their credit card information and try again. The system will also send an email notification to the “Default Website Email” address with the information about the failed signup attempt. The failed signup attempt will also be logged in the Activity Tracker in the Admin.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing members from adding a few specific zip / post codes as additional locations when using the “Multi-Location Listings” Add-On.
  • We fixed an issue which was causing the Contact Details tab in the Member Dashboard to be marked as “Complete”, even when the member had not selected a “Top Category” and the field was set to be required.
  • We fixed an issue that was preventing users from searching for members by country in some cases.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the system from displaying thumbnail images on videos search results pages in some cases.

  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the system from displaying Event Posts on the Events Calendar in some cases.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the first instance of a member’s name from being clickable when using the Private Member Chat Add-On.
  • We fixed an issue which was affecting the ability to display the member email records stored on the Member Activity Tracker in some cases.
  • We fixed an issue which was allowing past due members to see member profile content when it had been set as Members Only content using the Members Only Add-On.

  • We fixed an issue which was causing the system to send incorrect transaction metadata to the Stripe Payment Gateway when a member upgraded their account in some cases.
