New Features:

  • We created a new Membership Plan Setting called "Show 'Recent Transactions' Module". This new setting adds the ability to display the member's most recent transactions on the Member Dashboard.
  • We created a new Member Status called "Incomplete". This status will be assigned when a member signs up initially and the payment for their signup is processing. If there is an error during the signup process that we are not accounting for, the member will not be set as "Active" without paying.
  • We released a new version of the Brilliant Directories App in Zapier. This version includes the ability to create "Triggers" from a Brilliant Directories website and some additional minor fixes.
  • We updated the Media Manager in the Admin to give integrate the Pixabay Free Stock Photo library in addition to the existing Pexels integration.
  • We created a new Design Setting called "Profile Page Tabs Behavior". This setting controls the display of the tabs on member profile pages. To use this new feature navigate to the Admin >> Settings >> Design Settings >> General tab >> Member Profile Pages
  • We created a new Billing Email Reminder setting called "Copy Admin".  When enabled, the Admin Notification Email Address will be copied on billing reminder emails sent to members.
    We also created a new Advanced Setting called "Do not Send Empty Daily Reminder Report". When enabled, the Admin will not receive a notification email when there is no billing activity to report for the day.

Enhancements / Fixes:

  • We created a new Transaction History Search Filter field called "Search Product Name". This new field adds the ability to search the content of the data in the "Product column.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the Froala Editor from correctly updating the "width" and "height" image attributes after updating or resizing an image in the editor.

One of the best business decisions we've ever made

We switched to BD about a year ago, and it's one of the best business decisions we ever made. Our website now is user-friendly, and our members can easily update their profiles and add content on their own. But what I love most about BD is that they are constantly adding new features, and they seem to really care about their clients... We struggled through various platforms, from WordPress to very expensive custom-built websites. None came close to being as functional or reliable as our BD website.
