Secure Your Site from Bots with Recaptcha

The Recaptcha 'I Am Not a Robot' option is an effortless interaction from your customers to help protect your site from abuse and spam and guarantees that they are a human and 'real' customer. The Recaptcha box can be added automatically to all of your forms on your site.

Comply with the EU's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The GDPR laws will begin enactment at the end of May 2018. If you do business with any businesses in Europe - you will have to comply. MemberGate has added functionality to help your site act in accordance with these new rules. Providing information on your cookies, requiring a cookie consent form and updates to your privacy policy are some of the items that will be necessary to comply.

 

 

How to?

These new regulations will require some time to implement as there are a few steps to take along with updates to your Privacy Policy. Check out the Informational Page for more detailed information and instructions for the steps to take.

 

 

 

Cookie Consent Box

As part of the GDPR, the cookie consent box is required for those sites doing business with anyone in the EU. However, this will probably be a regulation that spans to other countries as well. Be ahead of the game and cover your business by educating your users about the cookies in use and get their permission to visit your site.

Keep the Access for Your Amazon S3 Buckets as Private

The files in your Amazon S3 accounts should remain as private, so only those with authorized access can view or download the files. This protects your intellectual property from being shared. When set with granted access, files can remain as private on Amazon S3, but will be accessible for your paying members and customers.

Published Content Displayed in a Carousel or Slider

Your published content pages can now be displayed in a rotating carousel or slider. This allows for your content to automatically (or manually) advance as well as allowing many content pages to only take up a smaller sized real estate on your pages.

How to?

In 'Add or Edit Department', 'Edit Portal Pages' or 'Add/Edit Clumps' look for the Content Layout field. Choose Slider or Carousel from the drop down box.

 

 

 

Orphan Page Roll

The Orphan Page Roll is an admin report that will list any content pages that are no longer assigned to a department .

When a content page is added to your site, they are assigned to a department. When a department is deleted, those content pages in that department are considered 'orphaned'. The Orphan Page Roll then will list all of those content pages that no longer have a department assigned to them. This lets you know that those content pages need to be reassigned.

 

Release Notes: Spring

 

How to?

If there are any pages listed in the Orphan Page Roll, click on the 'edit' link to go to the Edit Screen for that content page. It can be be reassigned to a new department.
