Cyber Week Deals - Brilliant Directories
July 2022 – Monthly Changelog

New Features:

  • We added the ability to send data from a Smart List to a Webhook endpoint. To use this new feature, navigate to the Admin >> My Members >> Smart Lists >> Actions >> Send to Webhook.
  • We created a new set of lead settings called "Pre-Selected Top Level Category", "Pre-Selected Sub Level Category" and "Pre-Selected Sub Sub Level Category". These allow for pre-selecting categories in the "Website – Lead Form – Get Matched" form. To use this new feature, navigate to the Admin >> Interactions >> Member Leads >> Lead Settings >> Auto-Match Workflows >> Edit >> General Lead Settings.
  • We added the ability to import 301 Redirects via CSV file on the 301 Redirect page in the Admin.
  • We created a new Advanced Setting called "Reload Same Web Page After Express Member Registration". Enabling this setting will keep users on the same page after they sign up as a member via the Express Member Registration form instead of being redirected to the Member Dashboard. We also created a new Advanced Setting called "Reload Same Web Page After Express Member Registration – Exception List". The URLs entered into this setting will continue to redirect users to the Member Dashboard after signing up, even when the previous setting is active on the site.
  • We created a new search option for the 301 Redirect page call "Find Unused Redirects". Using this filter will return all redirects that currently point to a URL that is not in use on the website.
  • We created a new Advanced Setting called "Allow Widget Shortcode in Front-End Text Editor". Enabling this setting will allow widgets to be added to posts using the "Froala Text Editor – Media Manager Access" form field.
  • We added the ability to set a Default Member Cover image. To use this new feature, navigate to the Admin >> Settings >> General Settings >> Brand Images tab.


Enhancements / Fixes:

  • We updated the workflow when creating Multi-Photo Posts from the Member Dashboard to always refresh the page after an image has been uploaded, even if the button in the modal is not clicked.
  • We updated the layout of the Member Leads page in the Admin to hide the lead status and lead category filters with a toggle when there are pending leads. This will enhance the UI of this page when viewed on smaller screens.
  • We fixed an issue which was affecting the ability to import members via CSV file when each member in the file contained a large amount of data in some cases.
  • We fixed an issue which was affecting the ability to open the HTACCESS File page in the Admin in some cases.
  • Paying an invoice from the Member Dashboard will now trigger the Paid Plan Signup Webhook.
  • We fixed an issue with Member Review submissions which was causing the system to send the recommendation-member email template when a user submits a review, even if the "Require All Reviews To be Approved by Admin First" Membership Plan setting was active.
  • We fixed an issue which was affecting the display of the /categories page after entering and then deleting a keyword from the search filter on the page in some cases.
  • We updated the Member Review Submitted and Lead Submitted Webhooks to include the member_first_name, member_last_name, member_email, member_company_name, member_phone_number, sms_member_phone, sms_phone_number_plus, review_id, lead_id, lead_match_id variables when sending data to the Webhook.
  • We updated the Social Share widget to load the social share buttons after the page loads. This will help to improve page load times and scores from 3rd party tools.
  • We updated the Manage Posts page in the Admin to display an alert when an Admin sets a post that is pending review to "Published", and this would cause the member to exceed the "Max. Free Posts" the member has set in their Membership Plan settings.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the Lead Price by Category Add-On from working properly for Sub-Sub Level categories in some cases.
  • The getMemberSubCategory() function is now compatible with the Default Category Sort Order settings. Click here for more information.

  • We implemented several security updates to prevent XSS injections in several areas of the software.
  • We updated the layout of the Admin Accounts page in the Admin area to add a maximum height to each Admin's section in the table to prevent the sections from getting too long when the Admin account is associated with several different websites.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the system from loading the default form fields when editing reviews and leads when the site has custom review and lead forms that have been disabled. We also removed Google reCaptcha fields from displaying when editing reviews and leads as well.
