May 2024 – Monthly Changelog

New Features:

  • We added the ability to upload .txt and .rtf files through the Media Manager in the Admin and "File Upload" fields in the Form Manager. 
  • We added a new default CSS class called "btn-outline". This class will add an "outlined button" style when applied to elements on a site.
  • We added a new unique default CSS class to each row in the table that displays data in the "Overview" tab on member profile pages. This CSS class is dynamically named based on the Database Variable Name of the corresponding field in the member form that is displaying the data on the member profile page.  This will make targeting specific form fields displayed in the Overview tab of profile pages much easier.
  • We released the new version of the Send Newsletter module in the Admin – click here for more information.
  • We created two new Homepage Design Settings called "Display Star Rating" and "Only Display Members with Star Ratings?" for the Recent and Featured Member widgets used on the homepage.
    The "Display Star Rating" setting will control whether or not a member's review Star Rating will display on the homepage widgets. The "Only Display Member with Star Ratings?" setting will require members to have a review score in order for them to display in the widget. 
  • We created a new Advanced Setting called "Website Homepage URL". This setting controls the URL of the homepage of the website (/home by default).
  • We updated the Sell Digital Products & Services Add-On to add the ability to support recurring subscriptions and donation payments in addition to the one-time and free payments. Click here for more information.
  • We updated the Community Comments Add-On to add the ability to "follow" comment threads and receive email notifications when new comments or replies are posted to followed threads. Click here for more information.
  • We created a new page in the Admin called Email Outbox. This page will log all emails sent by the system.

It was a relief to find Brilliant Directories

After many long days testing different platforms, it was a relief to find Brilliant Directories. Not only does the platform have the features I required, it was affordable and the support is second to none. I managed to achieve things with BD that I never imagined I could do by myself... Money which would have been spent on developers has gone into marketing my site. BD has a very strategic approach in the growth of the platform and it is clear to see customers are at the forefront of that approach.
