Improved Sponsorship Count Tracking

Patch
       Tim Robertson

There were certain situations where the count of sponsors on a sponsorship could have been incorrect. We've improved the way in which we're calculating this to avoid this problem and we've re-calculated sponsorship counts on all sites.

Improved Appearance of Account Search Results in POS

Patch
       Kory Gorsky

When searching for an account to attach to an order in the POS, there was a situation where it wouldn't show you the address, phone number or memberships that the account belonged to. This could cause issues if you were looking up an account where two or more people have the same name.

We've now updated the POS Account Search so that it always shows the information it has available (email address, address, telephone and memberships).

Fixed Issue with [[recurring_description]] Merge Tag in Emails

Patch
       Kory Gorsky

In certain cases, the merge tag used to display a description of the recurring amount for a contribution did not include the covered costs (DCC).

For example, it may have shown: You will be charged $25.00 USD/mon starting May 23rd, 2021.

When it should have show: You will be charged $26.22 USD/mon starting May 23rd, 2021.

This is now resolved.

Minor Update to Email Sharing Links

Patch
       Kory Gorsky

Before this fix, when a supporter would share a blog post or fundraiser on your website through the "email" share link , it would share a portion of the content of the page. Due to limitations in web-browsers, we would limit the length of this content. In these situations however, the limiting of the length of content would make the content of the email look as if it had been cut-off. This isn't a great experience for someone trying to share your page.

In this update we've made it more obvious that this is an excerpt by using an ellipsis and we now provide a "Read More" link below the excerpt.

Fixes to Fundraising Pages (P2P)

Patch
       Kory Gorsky

In this update we've fixed three issues with fundraising pages surrounding content reporting, deadline dates and animations.

  1. There was an issue where the "Report this Page" link was not showing in certain situations. We've fixed this to keep your fundraising pages safe.
  2. There was an issue with how we showed how many days were left when a deadline was set on a fundraiser. It should now show properly; and
  3. There was an issue where the animations on a fundraiser page were not respecting the setting that turns off animations. So if you'd turned off animations they were still present on the page. This is no longer the case.
