The following changes are in place with immediate effect. The goal is to significantly enhance your own branding and contact details on Property Details.

2. We have replaced the "Schedule a Tour" block on the right side of the Home Details with a brand new summary display of your contact details with a form to get contact "Ask a Local Expert".

Buying Buddy JavaScript Plugin Update for faster loading

This update applies to the JavaScript plugin, i.e. NOT WordPress.
We are now using AWS Cloudfront to serve the Buying Buddy plugin files, which will speed up plugin load times. When copying the Plugin Install code to use on your website, the new files paths are applied.
If you installed the JavaScript plugin before June 26 2022, then your plugin is still fully functional, but it will be using the old file paths. If you wish to update the plugin code to use the new methods, then login to your dashboard to copy the latest install code and use this to fully replace existing plugin code on your website. See the installation instructions for how to do this.

Results Widget Change (Map View)

This update helps preserve compatibility between the old and new widgets. With immediate effect, the default view for the Results Widget will be to hide the map. The user can still use the 'Show Map' button to search with the map / split screen. If you wish to show the map (split screen) initially when the results loads, then add the 'tab' filter option to the results widget, for example: filter='tab:map'. (Results widget reference).
