Current Beta Features


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.
