Enhancements / Fixes:

  •  We fixed an issue when performing a reviews search on the Member Details page in the Admin, the system was returning all of the member reviews from the site instead of just the reviews for the member being viewed.
  • We updated the logic of how the system creates the URL of a new post created by a member.  Now the post URL will only include the name of post, rather than always including the ID of the post as well.  However, if the system detects that the new post will have the same URL as an existing post, it will include the post ID at the end of the URL in order to make it unique.
  • The “Members-Only” badge will now display next to the Listing Post Type on the “Edit Post Setting”s page in the Admin if it is set to be members-only.
