Good day, please I have updated my wpforo to 1.8.2 but the following problems still persist, I have deleted the cache and log out, then re-login again.

1. It doesn't recognize new users(I.e the numbers of new user doesn't reflect on the front end)

2. If I upload two picture on a post, one shows as a link while the other will be perfect but when it was just one, it shows as a link

3. The email sent to subscriber which was formerly a preview of the new post started showing the full post in the email.

Hi @ayo365,

Your issues are not related to the update and most of them are not issues at all.

1. It doesn't recognize new users(I.e the numbers of new user doesn't reflect on the front end)

The front end user number is based on your active registered user number. Started from 1.7.4 versions it doesn't show inactive users in the main users count. Just go to Dashboard > Forums > Members admin page to see your inactive users, they are not counted.

Here is a related topic:

 

2. If I upload two picture on a post, one shows as a link while the other will be perfect but when it was just one, it shows as a link

Please leave some screenshot and a direct link to that post.

3. The email sent to subscriber which was formerly a preview of the new post started showing the full post in the email.

This is a new feature. The email content has been changed in new versions, a few months ago.

Well it was keeping count of it before now and that's why I was surprised when it just started  only keeping tab of active users only without any warning and same with the email also, it also just went to full post without any changes to the original setting which is why I was also concern about and will it be possible to change the email back to the preview type?

Below are two of such post that have image in link form.

Ok, let's try this. Put this hook code in your current active WordPress theme's functions.php file:

function custom_wpforo_attachment_fixing( $content ){
if( strpos($content, '../') !== FALSE ){
$forum_home = home_url();
$content = preg_replace('|https*://[./]+|i', $forum_home, $content);
}
return $content;
}
add_filter('wpforo_content_after', 'custom_wpforo_attachment_fixing', 10);

thanks, will wpforo embedded addon be able to solve this problem permanently?, Also I noticed that I couldn't load other files formats like words, pdf, and even videos, will wforo embedded gives me access to be able to know such also?

@ayo365,

This problem can only fix the code above. The Embeds addon doesn't have any relation to this problem. The Embeds addon is only designed for embedding 3rd party content like YouTube and SoundCloud... The file format managing and other advanced options can be managed using wpForo Advanced Attachments addon: https://gvectors.com/product/wpforo-advanced-attachments/
