Release Notes – 2023.08.31 August 31, 2023
- Updated our Twitter logos where possible
Where possible, we have updated our application to use Twitter’s new logo. It’s worth noting, however, that the way many of our legacy templates managed social media icons makes it prohibitively time consuming to update wholesale, so those will continue using the old logo. If we receive complaints about specific templates, we’ll address them on a case by case basis.
- Another wave of keyword mapping updates
We are in the midst of another big wave of MLSes changing data providers, and as a result there has been a larger than average amount of keyword search mapping updates happening in recent weeks (and this will likely continue for at least another release cycle or two). As usual, we’ve endeavored to recreate previous mappings as thoroughly as possible, but please be aware that these data provider changes can often completely break more custom keyword searches due to changed data formats and availability.
- “Legacy” pages filtered from react link building interfaces
We’ve addressed a longstanding source of confusion caused by a change to how certain page types are structured behind the scene for react templates. Basically, react sites still have ‘legacy’ versions of certain page types present for compatibility reasons, but in general they should be hidden and not used. However, they were showing up in various link building interfaces, which was very confusing! This should now be corrected wherever possible.
- Fixed the control panel tool for initiating a manual listing update
A recent infrastructure change created issues with the tool for requesting a manual listing update from an account’s profile screen in the control panel. We’ve corrected the issue via e-release, but it’s worth making note of here to be sure people are aware that this helpful tool should be functioning as expected again.
