Featured Locations BETA
We now have 14 accounts in BETA, in various stages of onboarding. No major problems. There are still a few items that need to be addressed before the official launch. We'll handle these in the next release cycle:
Outdated edit UI for the Navigation Edit screen that prevents featured location pages from being added to the main nav from here (though there are other ways to do so).
Better handling for listing results blocks when they don't find any results.
Safe way to handle ids in the new content types when cloning websites.
Projected launch date: Monday, Feb 22
When we launch, all new accounts going forward (with IDX) will have Featured Locations pages included as part of the standard buildouts. Existing customer sites will not be changed, but will have access to the new features.
Our PPC add-on feature is going BETA today, and we will begin testing using a few pre-selected customers. We'd like to collect at least a month of data before launching. More info to come on this topic in coming weeks.
