DirectoryEngine 1.9.6 – Seamless blog and map display

DE Blog in homepage

The content details of the blog were not displayed in the homepage. However, the bug is fixed now so your articles will show up properly on your blog from the homepage.

Map Default Zoom works properly when Geolocation enabled

The settings of Geolocation could be found in back-end (Engine Settings → Settings → Map).

When you turned on Geolocation which required users to share their current location, the map default zoom did not work no matter how big or small you set for the zoom function. The issue is solved properly in this version. The map default zoom now operates seamlessly whether you enable or disable Geolocation.
