Overview

This update brings a significant amount of improvements, bug fixes and cleanup to the addon. Notably, the custom indexing system built on top of native Xenforo forum indexing, and similar systems extended to other addons, has been greatly revised and tested.

The Index Management page also has new improvements, such as quicklinks to relevant category lists. Indexing options for various addons are no longer displayed when those addons are not installed.

** Some things to review after upgrade **


The 'Noindex Members' setting has been changed. Please visit the SEO -> Index Management page and review this option.

The indexing criteria (not the global/default criteria) when editing nodes has been slightly reworked. If you've assigned manual criteria to individual nodes, please review each node's criteria at Admin -> Forums -> Nodes to make sure your criteria are now reflected properly.

There should be no further reworks to these features which should require review.
Changelog
  • Fixed a bug which could cause incorrect article title rendering in AMS
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes the option to add the Category title to article page titles would not save when checking or unchecking
