New Features:

  • We added a Text Label for the title attribute of the Date form field in the Form Manager. New text label: date_format_placeholder.  
  • We updated the Froala WYSIWYG used throughout the Admin to the latest version.  The frontend of sites will be updated to use the latest version soon as well

  • We created a new Advanced Setting named force_product_settings_login_redirect.  From the setting’s description: “Enter a comma separated list of pages (/login,/about,etc) where if a member logs in from those pages, they will always be redirected to the page defined in their membership level setting. Otherwise, after logging in from any other pages, the current page will refresh after logging in so that the member remains on the current page. TIP: Leave empty for all logins to always redirect to the membership level redirect page. Use “/login” to ALWAYS refresh the current page and never redirect user to their login redirect page.”

  • We updated the design of the Multi-Location Listing Add-On in the Member Dashboard.
  • We added a feature to display the reason why a form submission has been blocked by the Spam Form Protector Add-On.  Now, when viewing a site while logged in as an Admin, submitting a form protected by this add-on will display an error message with the exact keyword that triggered the the submission to be blocked.  Also, when a form submission is blocked due to the Spam Form Protector, it will be logged in the Activity Tracker of the site.
  • We added a “Members Only” text badge on the “Edit Web Pages” page in the Admin to help easily identify the pages that have been set as “Members Only”.
