Plugin Bug Caused Analytics Data Gap on some sites.

example data gap weekend of Feb 19, 2017

Popular plugin, Google Analytics for WordPress by MonsterInsights, fixed a bug in their upgrade routine that caused the manually set google UA code to be unset.  On Wednesday, we fixed the configuration for hosted sites where we manage the Google Analytics account. Not all hosted sites use this plugin. If you manage your own Analytics account you should verify that it is still collecting new data after 2/18/2017, if not, you’ll need to re-add your UA code in the plugin configuration. (we prefer to manually enter the UA code, by clicking on the link directly underneath the Google Authentication button)  Please let us know if you have questions or concerns.

Hosted SiteControl Features Updated

Today we rolled out an update to our SiteControl Platform that adds some new features, rateboards facelift, improved caching, and optimized performance.

2016 Rateboard Updates

One big change is that we move towards replacing our older proprietary “SmartTag” snippets with the now standardized WordPress “Shortcode” style snippets. You won’t have to make any changes to your hosted sites as we will automatically be replacing your SmartTags with Shortcodes. The new Shortcode changes are detailed here.

New RateCard rate format

Rateboards have been given a facelift to a more modern minimal design that should blend more readily with various site designs. There is also an optional narrow typeface included to improve spacing.  The data can also be filtered now based on text keyword matching, as well as preset sorting and limited to a specific number of results.  Rateboards also have a new Responsive Design for better mobile layout. We also added some new functionality to refresh rateboard data when you delete the SuperCache for a page containing a rateboard.

We also introduce a new rate display style called we’re calling “Rate Cards” that offers a new fresh way to highlight rates on your site. They also offer the same keyword filtering, sorting, and limiting as the new Rateboard tables. Read More »
