October 2023 – Monthly Changelog

New Features:

  • We added the ability to export member posts from the Manage Posts page in the Admin.
  • We updated the Media Manager in the Admin to give users access to images from the Pexel Free Stock Photo library.
  • We added the ability to edit the filename and "alt" attribute of post images from the Manage Posts page in the Admin. To use this new feature, navigate to the Admin >> My Content >> Manage Post >> Actions >> Edit Image Data.
  • We added the ability to auto-import Post images when importing Posts via CSV file in the Admin. To use this new feature, navigate to the Admin >> My Content >> Manage Post >> List Actions >> Import Posts via CSV File >> Advanced Options.
  • We updated the Froala WYSIWYGs used in the Admin area of sites to give Admins access to images from the Pexel Free Stock Photo library.
  • We created a new General Setting called "Website 'From' Email Address". This setting allows Admins to enter the email address that the system will use to send outbound emails from the website. Also, we created the "Admin Notification Email Address" setting. This is the email address to which the system will send "Admin Notification" emails.


Enhancements / Fixes:

  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the price of leads on Member Dashboard from being charged properly in some cases.
  • The "Internal Description" field is no longer required when creating a custom webhook in the Admin.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the One-Click Facebook Login from working properly when users sign up to a paid Membership Plan.
  • We updated the Post Settings page in the Admin to automatically remove any whitespaces at the beginning or end of the Post Type Name field when saving Post Types in the Admin.
  • We added the ability to use the Ctrl+S hotkey when saving Text Labels on the frontend of sites.

  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the "Save Changes" button from working properly on the HTACCESS and Robots File pages in the Admin on certain screen sizes.
  • We updated the preloaded image on each page to use the local image source (rather than an ImageKit or other CDN source) when the image is in .webp format. Doing so improves scores in 3rd party tools like GTMetrix and Google Pagespeed.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the system from executing API calls from the Website API Documentation page in the Admin.
  • We added error handling when the date_added field is sent in an unsupported format to the a site's Leads API endpoint.

  • We fixed an issue which was causing city breadcrumbs on member search results pages to redirect to the incorrect URL in some cases.
  • We updated the "Pay Invoice" workflow on the Member Dashboard in order to skip checking the member's credit card on file if they have enough credits to pay for the entire invoice.
  • We implemented an update in order to always display a member's available credits in the "Order Summary" modal when paying invoices through the frontend of a site.

  • We updated the Domain Manager page in the Admin to improve validations in several places.
  • We added a new Advanced Setting called "Default Edit Photos Data for Multi-Photo Post Type Page URL". This allows an Admin to edit the portion of URL used in the Member Dashboard during the editing of image title and descriptions that were not previously editable.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the system from matching members with leads based on member Service Areas in some scenarios.
  • We fixed an issue which was preventing custom form field data from being sent to webhook endpoints.

  • The<body> element on the frontend of sites will now have a different class added to it depending on whether or not the user viewing the page is logged in as a member. This allows the owner of a site to more easily target elements on a page based on whether or not the user is logged in to an account.

  • We fixed an issue which was affecting the ability to export data from the Transaction History page in the Admin in some cases.
