We added some additional functionality to how categories are displayed on the front end of a website. There is now an Advanced Setting called fast_search. When this is set to 1, all categories of a website will display in the /categories page and in category dropdowns in member search features, regardless of whether or not a member will be found in that category. This speeds up the loading of the /categories page as well as the category dropdowns since the software does not need to check whether or not there are members that have selected those categories.
If fast_search is set to 0 (as it is by default) only categories that at least one member has selected will display on the /categories page and in category dropdowns in member search features.
Now the Price Slider can be controlled through the Post Settings for a given Post Type in the Admin area. There is no longer a need to edit the Search Module widgets for a given Post Type in order to update the "Min" and "Max" values for a price slider. To use this new feature navigate to the Admin area >> Content >> Edit Post Settings. Then on the General Setting tab of each Post Type, you will find new fields which control the Price Slider "Min" and "Max" values.
The widget that displays Posts like Events, Articles, Blogs, Jobs, Videos, Audio FIles in the Account Member Dashboard is now based on Text Labels.
The Yes/No Field Type in the Form Builder, the Service Areas portion of the Member Dashboard (Multi-Location Listings Add-On), the Add / Edit Post area of the Member Dashboard, and the Select Categories Module in the Member Dashboard are now based on Text Labels.
We added the ability to display the Social media Links in the Header of the Site.
We added a new login widget that can be used on any sidebar module.
The Events Calendar Widget is now based on Text Labels.
The New Bulk Image Importer has been updated and now works properly with the latest version of the image system. This can be found by navigating to Members >> Member Images in the Admin area
Enhancements / Fixes:
We refactored one of the core files that loads whenever a front end page of a website is requested in order to make it process faster. We also removed several lines of code that were present to support pages that have since been deprecated.
The Advanced Settings auto_activate_paid_members and auto_activate_free_members are now active and working as expected.
We improved the Admin Accounts page in the Admin area. Now duplicate Admin usernames are not allowed and passwords must contain at least 8 characters, at least one letter and at least one number or symbol, and will not accept blank spaces
The issue that was affecting the display of the Main Menu on some older smartphones and tablets has been resolved.
We improved the way that Text Labels are saved in order to avoid unintended backslashes from being added to the text in some cases.
We added support for the "Website Address" field type in the Form Manager. This field type will now automatically create a link from the content entered in this field rather than displaying the content as plain text.
Bug fixes to the New Leads Module, New Reviews Module, Google Location System, Add-on Manager System, and Member System.
In all, more than 30 bugs were fixed throughout the software.
