November 2022 – Monthly Changelog

New Features:

  • We added a default set of Spanish language Text Labels.  Site Admins can now choose to apply and edit English and Spanish Text Labels separately.
  • We created a new Advanced Setting called "Enable HTTP Security Headers (CSP)". This new setting will add additional HTTP security headers and Content Security Policies when the server responds to client requests.

  • We created a new set of Advanced Settings to control the maximum file upload size in different contexts. These new settings will impact the member, post, multi-photo and PDF Chat upload logic. By default the maximum file upload size for all field types is 10MB.
  • We created two new SEO Template Variables called %%%sub_category_name%%% and %%%sub_sub_category_name%%%. These new variables are usable in SEO Templates related to member search results pages for Sub Categories.
