Current Beta Features

Follow

With each new release of Metro Publisher, our development team introduces new features and adjustments to code. In some cases we allow users to opt-in to the new features. In other cases, changes in code may cause conflicts with some older clients who may be using certain features that are being phased out. We add those as Beta Features in order to avoid compatibility issues with older features. 

To get to the Beta Features tab for your website:

  • Log in as an Admin
  • Go to Settings > Beta Features

Below is a list of the current Beta Features. 

New Features

These offer improvements to current features, but clients may want to update these at a time that is convenient for them.

  • Show sprockets on Location pages
    Displays sprockets on the right rail of location pages. Sprockets are inherited from the top level (homepage).
  • Show sprockets on Topic pages
    Displays sprockets on the right rail of location pages. Sprockets are inherited from the top level (homepage).
  • Use new Filterbar on event and location searches
    This option improves the mobile experience for location and event searches by moving the category and tag checkboxes out of the right rail and into a more robust search filter at the top of the page. Additionally, this feature also allows sprockets to be displayed in the right rail in place of the checkboxes.
