March 2024 – Monthly Changelog

New Features:

  • We created a new Member Search Filter called "Find Duplicates". This new filter allows Admins to search for duplicate member data from the Search Members page in the Admin.
  • We released an update in order to add the ability for Admins to purchase, increase and auto-install Website Boost Add-Ons (Bandwidth, Disk Space, and Member Limits) from the Admin.
  • We created a new Advanced Setting called "Show Chatbot in the Admin". This setting controls how the Brilliant Directories Helpbot displays in the Admin of a site.
  • We added the ability to display the value of any variable saved for a member when they are logged in to their account and viewing a page on the site using the [me=] shortcode.   For example, to display the value of the first_name variable saved for a member when they are logged into their account, use the shortcode [me=first_name].  
  • If a user is viewing a page that contains this shortcode and they are not logged into an account, the shortcode would not display anything.


Enhancements / Fixes:

  • We fixed an issue that was causing the "Default From Email Address" domain from working properly when the site is using a subdomain in some cases.
