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 created a new tab in the Domain Manager page called "Website Resources". Site Admins can consult the website's bandwidth, disk space, dailly email transactions and member limit from this page.

    We also updated the Admin area to display an alert badge in the header if a site is a bout to reach or has surpassed one of the account's limits.

  • We updated the Community Comments Add-On in order to make the post comment's date compatible with the "Date Format" General Setting.

  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the "Show Categories with No Members" setting from working properly in some search module widgets.

  • We fixed an issue with the Smart List functionality which was preventing the system from sending a Financial Smart List to a webhook endpoint in some cases.

  • We created a new Spam Form Protector Add-On Setting called "Block Disposable Email Addresses". This keyword list will protect forms from being submitted with email addresses from disposable email account hosts, which help prevent SPAM. To use this new feature, navigate to the Admin >> Settings >> General Settings >> Integrations Tab >> Block Spam Keywords.

    Widget Involved:

    Bootstrap Theme Framework

  • We fixed an issue with the Member Quick Edit Form which was causing the system to remove the "Customize Listing URL" data after updating a member's Status in some cases.

  • We fixed an issue which was preventing the Canonical URL from working properly when serving Membership Plan Search Results pages in some cases.

    Widget Involved:

    Bootstrap Theme - HEAD

  • We added a new CSS Class called "verfied_member_results".  This CSS class can be used to target the "verified" members on member search result pages.

    Post Type Involved:

    Member Listings

  • We created a new Post Type Setting called "Enable Search Results Cache". Enabling this setting will activate the new search results cache functionality which will reduce search result page load times and increase page speed scores on third-party tools like GTMetrix and Google PageSpeed Insights.

    To use this new setting, navigate to the Admin >> Edit Post Setting >> Member Listing >> Search Results Design tab >> Additional Settings. 

    Note: This update is currently only available for Member Listings. Support for other Post Types will be released in a future update.
