IMPROVEMENTS

  • Facebook group events and Facebook group event (one event): Clicking links on the post’s description are now redirected to its original link, not a link to Facebook.
  • Instagram stories solution: We removed unnecessary elements like the likes and comments icons. We’ve added the account username above the story.
  • YouTube playlists (multiple playlists) solution: The channel ID link under the Basic tab is now linked to the Playlists tab on YouTube. On the feed, we’ve added a “View full playlist” text and videos count to emphasize that an item is a playlist.
  • Facebook page events solution: We moved the “Date picker font color”, “Date box border-color”, “Search box border-color” options to the “Bar” tab.
  • Vimeo channel solution: When hovering the video, the duration is now displaying.
  • YouTube playlist (single playlist) solution: The order of videos in the YouTube playlist and SociableKIT feed is now the same. Thanks to Jamie of KB musician for requesting this improvement.

FIXES

  • Google my business photos solution: Fixed an issue when the solution creation page is reloaded, it turns to require a Facebook page ID instead of searching a Google place.
  • YouTube channel solution: Fixed an issue where the video thumbnail has border lines when viewed on mobile (iPhone 12) and tablet (iPad Pro) devices using Google chrome browser. Thanks to Casey of Flurry and Snow for reporting this issue!
  • Facebook page posts solution: Fixed an issue when clicking the close (X) button of a pop-up (on Squarespace), it keeps on going back to the top of the web page. Thanks to Stine Johnsen for reporting this issue!
  • Facebook page events solution: Fixed an issue where the feed is not working on a Wix website browsed through Google Chrome browser in MacBook Pro 2015 laptop. Thanks to Dion of Garden’s Gourmet for reporting this issue!
  • Facebook page playlists solution: Fixed an issue where the background of the video pop-up is being distorted on a WordPress website.
  • Facebook page posts solution: Fixed an issue where feed is unable to show shared posts. Thanks to Kasper for reporting the issue!
  • Instagram feed and Twitter feed solution: Fixed an issue where the Instagram feed does not work with the Twitter feed when embedded on the same web page.
  • Twitter hashtag feed solution: Fixed an issue where the tweet that has an image is not displaying in the feed. Thanks to Berrin of AWED for reporting this issue.
