Release Notes – 2017.04.06 April 6, 2017
- New Styling Engine: Fonts and Colors
This new tool makes it easy to change the fonts and colors of a website without writing any custom css code! Access the new tools by using the paint roller icon at the top of the screen in edit mode.
Updates / Bug Fixes
- Dropdown Menus Disappear
Longer drop down menus that have a scrollbar are disappearing when you mouse over the scrollbar. This is a browser bug that they introduced with Chrome v. 56.
Confirmed that it goes away when you update to the latest version v. 57+.
- Sold Listing Price Formatting
The big price displaying for Sold listings is too big now that we’re including the prefix “Sold for” and is causing the listing address to wrap onto two lines. Since we already show a block of sold information on the listing tile, including the sold price, we’ve removed the big version from the upper right-hand corner.
- Sold price not hiding
Texas requires that we hide the sold price on sold listings. A previous release put in a system to handle this at the agent/MLS level. But EXPRESS accounts do not have an MLS to check, and there is the issue that a listing might be in Texas, but not in a Texas MLS. The Featured Listings now hide sold listing prices at the Listing level, by state.
- Deprecation of Mobile LeadTracker
When attempting to log into the admin menu on a mobile device, we previously forced users into a limited mode where they can only use LeadTracker. We now serve the full desktop version of the admin menu, but the mobile interface can be re-enabled for customers who want it via the profile screen in the control panel. Ultimately, we plan to provide a new mobile interface, but this is a longer term initiative.
- Listing Display Status issues
When editing a sold listing, the Display Status was getting overwritten to be “For Sale”. Fixed. Incidental fix: the ‘sold notes” field wasn’t getting saved correctly in this case, only in the inactive => closed case. Fixed that too.
- Oceanfront search
There was a bug in handling custom fields – they weren’t displaying correctly in the search description, and also weren’t properly being used in the search conditions. Fixed.
- Not able to access IDXPro child accounts
Old-style IDXPro child accounts had several problems that prevented them from being shown on the IDX Control Panel “show_profile” page, including that there is no associated Client record for them. Made changes to handle these differences.
- Listing Syndication
Zillow syndication had some recent issues. Added some debugging, and recovered some lost memory to improve Zillow syndication uptake.
- TurboLeads integration updates
This release contains supporting infrastructure for TurboLeads, and support for reporting client activity events to TurboLeads
