Have a look at the Local Services tab on San Rafael’s new website. If you’re interested in adding the Local Services tab to your website, please contact us.

We have also added the ability to set up an auto-populated hierarchical sitemap page, and fixed a number of bugs, particularly around account login. See the complete list of changes in the Changelog below.
