Software Release Notes

Software update: V. 6.18- 6.23


We've focused on software updates to make publishing easier. We've made it so that our graphic designers can load images into the new website without the help of a technical person. For the first time, the graphic developers are now able to play with the canvas themselves. And in Bernie's words, "Instead of communicating via telegraph," they are able to change colours, fonts, sizing and spacing. This also gives us the ability to create live "mock-ups" for the client, which helps in streamlining the approval process for the client.

  • Feature: removed .lead class on indexWelcome snipplet
  • Feature: passthru favicon and apple logos from s3
  • #9919 Bug: Build - Loading logo to dark background not working
  • #10038 Bug: Configure "Blog" Title in Build
  • Security: use urlJoin all over the place for safety


We've focused on showing the most recent comment for all users on the CRM dashboard, along with some added functionality, to save the user from going into individual clients. The CRM is now ballistically fast compared to the old one.

We've made a collection of SEO improvements based on the analysis of the biggest problems across all sites. We fixed the top 10 list from SEM Rush across the board for all clients.
