Release Notes – 2021.01.07

 January 7, 2021


  • Featured Locations Beta
    A lot of the tasks below refer to Featured Locations. These will take our existing saved searches and market reports and tie them together, making our sites even more content-rich and interconnected. The BETA for these is launching next release (1/21).

    In order to facilitate training, feedback, and the details of incorporating these into our buildout process, we need to leave them protected behind a BETA flag. During this time, we'll start using them for a limited number of new/existing accounts for a cycle or two, make any necessary adjustments, then do proper marketing when we're satisfied.

    More to come soon.


  • Featured location page
    New type of page featuring a specific location.
  • Featured Location Defaults page
    An edit page where you can define default featured location settings - default links to use on cards, default image, default page content, etc.
  • FL: drop db description, other columns
    Cleaned up unused database fields.
  • MLS approval tool improvements
    Added additional tools for managing MLS reapprovals.
  • Featured Location: Content Editing: Selected State
    When a block is selected (while it’s edit window is open) it is highlighted so you have a reference for which block you are editing.
  • Retain order of featured locations as entered
    Preloaded featured locations in the saved search by location tool will now be presented in creation order.
  • Agent profiles redirect to homepage
    Ran the EnablePrettyURLProcess to backfill missing urls for agents.

Bug fixes

  • Recaptcha pops twice on registration
    The registration form now validates the recaptcha token immediately after completion. This way, the token does not expire while the user is filling out the follow-up form, and the user doesn’t have to complete the recaptcha a second time.
  • Testimonial editor problem
    To fix a UI problem with the draggable testimonial items, users now must use the 4-way arrow icon to drag and reorder testimonials.
  • Blog search by tag heading
    Blog search by tag pages now properly use an h1 tag (instead of an h2) for the page heading.
  • 500 error on listing display setting page
    Fixed the listings display admin menu screen for legacy express accounts.
  • Schema error in CO-COMLS “MLS DIsclaimer”
    Removed invalid schema data from the CO-COMLS “MLS DIsclaimer” block
  • Issue with Polygon Maps in Featured Locations
    Fixed issues with complex polygon searches and the featured locations interface.
  • SiteMap Submission List Error
    Updated the sitemap submission tool to automatically build verification TXT records.
  • Blog Snippet changing?
    When a blog post was displayed as an AMP page, the existing snippet was overwritten. This has been fixed so that, if there is a snippet, it will be used and retained.
