Release Notes – 2018.06.28 June 28, 2018
- Elite Modal registration form
Added “teaser” registration to blog post pages too. Works the same as for listing pages. Added ability to prompt for registration on any individual page (as a page property). Additional option to either require registration to view or allow the prompt to be dismissed. When using the “required” version of the registration prompt, the content behind it is mostly hidden with a blur effect.
- “Simple Registration” enabled globally
All users now have the ability to enable a revised version of the registration settings page with new social login options. This feature has been available via a beta flag since last release but it is now enabled globally (customers can now find and enable this setting without contacting support). Current users will NOT be forced to use the new “simple” form, but they can go to their settings page to enable it. New customers WILL default to use the simple registration form with social logins, although the defaults might change a bit over the next few weeks as we evaluate their effectiveness.
- New Template Series (Parallax Pro)
A new template series is releasing today called “Parallax Pro”. It features a parallax scrolling effect for banner widgets, a new banner content overlay section, special styling for the quick search bar when its in the content overlay section, and a shrinking sticky nav with a logo area and a custom content area (logos shrink on scroll, while custom content is hidden on scroll). The styling engine works very well with this series – in addition to customizing the theme color, you can customize the header and footer background colors, the header and footer text colors, and also the opacity of the banner mask (darken your banner images / video to make the white overlayed text easier to read).
- TurboLeads CSV export
Has been changed to run as a background task so it can handle large quantities of contacts. UI now includes a progress bar to show status, and then the file download is automatically triggered when the file is ready. It can take several minutes to create the CSV file for thousands of contacts.
- Better email design for agent invitation emails and process
Simplified agent invitation emails. Old version was bloated with unnecessary information that made important links hard to find.
- Custom form inputs not being logged
Handling of form submission events in TurboLeads has been improved in several ways. Duplicate labeled form fields should no longer be lost, and the mapping of inputs to contact fields is now explicitly tied to form input type.
- QA: follow-up form name bug
TuroboLeads contacts should now properly add names from form submissions by previously anonymous contacts.
- Can’t change Profile email
A new TurboLeads feature was preventing some users from creating or changing profiles. This has been fixed.
- Submit to craigslist does not work for office agents
Non-admin users should now be able to properly use the Craiglist listing submission tool.
- Stage: captcha does not show on simple registration when you enable it
Fixed an issue with the new forced registration blur effect preventing the loading of captcha forms.
- QA: save search link opens simple reg as page
Saved search links should now properly open modal registration forms rather than linking to the old page version.
