Release Notes – 2017.08.10 August 10, 2017
- New Authentication System
We have implemented a new authentication system to improve our security infrastructure. The admin login page now looks a bit different, and it is hosted on a special authentication server.
- Account Login Consolidation
As part of our new Authentication system, usernames must be unique. A number of customers were using the same login email for multiple websites/accounts, so we have consolidated these login credentials into a single set that grants access to all associated accounts.
- Google Analytics Tracking for AMP
The Google Analytics tracking code is now added to AMP pages for all accounts that have a Google Analytics tracking code installed.
- HTTPS for robots.txt
Sites with SSL enabled were still serving the robots.txt file via http. This has been fixed so that the URL redirects to https if SSL is enabled.
- Error editing nav links
Previously, an agent could add a deprecated linkout page to their navigation menu, which would then be impossible to edit. We have fixed all cases where this happened and unpublished all deprecated linkout pages so that this can not happen again.
- Problems with Batch Resize
The batch resize tool in the file manager was not working in many cases, and was showing errors saying that the image can’t be found. This has been fixed.
- Password reset not working
Passwords are limited to 20 characters, but the interface wasn’t properly communicating or enforcing that. Longer passwords were accepted, but would not work. The password reset field will no longer accept passwords exceeding 20 characters.
- Google contacts sync
Previously, we were not “sourcing” contacts from Google on down to LeadTracker. LeadTracker entries would be copied to Google Contacts, but not vice versa. This has been fixed.
- AMP page error reports from Google Analytics
The State Disclaimer for Texas MLS listings had some HTML that was not compatible with the AMP markup. This problem has been fixed for all customers.
