Featured Locations The primary focus of this release is putting the finishing touches on Featured Locations. Beta testing has been going well, and with this release we intend to launch the feature more broadly early next week. Here’s Stephen’s rundown of what’s changed in this release and what’s still coming soon:
These fixes and improvements are staging to go out on 2/18:
You can now link to these pages from Edit Navigation and Custom Content (CKEditor)
Added Carousel options to control auto-play and delay.
Masthead editing moved down within the Page Content card (since it's part of the page content)
New options to override card and masthead images
Indicator in list view so you can tell at a glance which locations have been customized away from the default content
A few more known issues that we'll be addressing shortly:
Just after launch, change the default "Search by Areas" page to use the new "Featured Locations List Page" version instead of custom content.
Better design for listing carousels that have no results.
Review titles and meta descriptions and optimize for SEO
