We made updates to several Default Widgets this week. If you have customized any of these widgets and would like to update your customized widget, you can find the latest code in the corresponding Default Widget. Please remember that if you have a custom version of any of these widgets, our latest updates have not been pushed to your website.

  • We updated the logic of the Google Search Assist and the Detect Visitor Location Add-Ons in order to have their functionality disabled by default when added to a site.  Their functionality can then be enabled through the settings which control these Add-Ons on the Design Settings page in the Admin.

  • We updated the Event Sidebar Search widget in order to support cloned Event Post Types.
