We just released wpForo 1.4.4 version and then 1.4.4.1 with some small changes.

IMPORTANT: If you're updating from 1.4.2 and lower versions and you have customized wpforo template files in WordPress active theme's /wpforo/ folder, please remove those before updating to 1.4.4 version. wpForo 1.4.4 doesn't support old template files.

Main Changes

 

1. Guest Posting is here!

wpForo becomes more Guest Friendly with this version. We added many functions and features to engage forum guests. Now they are able to post topics and posts, quote others' content, edit own posts, set own topic resolved and attach files. To enable guest posting you should edit the "Read Only" forum access in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Forum Accesses admin page and enable forum permissions you want.

 

 

 

2. Built-in Google reCAPTCHA

Please don't forget about the security. We've also added built-in Google reCAPTCHA function. You should configure it and enable for Guest Topic and Post Editors.

In case you don't have antispam protection for Login / Register and Reset password forms you can enable wpForo reCAPTCHA for these forms too.

All settings are available in Dashboard > Forums > Tools > Antispam Tab:

 

3. Redesigned Login / Register and Reset Password pages

 

4. Font size changing button on topic and post editor toolbar

 

5. Recent Posts page with two displaying types Topics/replies and Posts

You can change Recent Posts page display type in Dashboard > Settings > Forums > Topics & Posts admin page. Option name "Recent Posts Display Type".

Left - Recent posts list | Right - Topic lists with recent posts and replies

 

 

Other Changes

  • Added: Option to replace default Reset Password page to wpForo page
  • Added: Tracks a.com as internal on b.a.com forum and doesn't add nofollow
  • Added: More intuitive user @mentioning, ignores last symbols (, . " / ! ...)
  • Added: Option to disable user @mentioning and Nicenames under avatar
  • Added: Custom redirection URLs after login/register/confirm subscription.
  • Added: Not allowed CAN's are disabled for according Forum Accesses
  • Added: Czech Translation (cs_CZ), many thanks to Pavel Polívka,
  • Fixed Bug: Problem with complete replacing website avatars to wpForo avatar
  • Fixed Bug: User can't see admin posts in own private topic.
  • Fixed Bug: Issue with Facebook avatars sources (lastmod sufix).
  • Fixed Bug: Uppercase extension problem (two avatar files for one user)
  • Fixed Bug: Delete post doesn't update topic last modified date
  • Fixed Bug: Delete topic doesn't update forum last topic information

 

UPDATE NOTES

  • To load your customized colors please refresh forum front-end page twice.
  • If you have a Cache Plugin, please delete all caches after wpForo update.
  • If you use CDN and found some issue please purge it.
  • If you have an old (1.4.2 or lower) customized copy of wpForo forum template files in your WP theme /wpforo/ folder please update them.
  • If you see style issues after update, please refresh forum page twice or do Ctrl+F5 on forum front-end to load new styles.
  • If you have wpForo addons, please update them right after wpForo forum update. Don’t update them before wpForo forum update.
  • In case you update forum and you have a large database, please make your forum faster using this instruction…

Congratulations! This is a very nice release! 🙂

If I may be so bold, I'd like to point out one little thing -- the Recent Posts page is awesome, by the way -- probably the one thing about it that I would request would be for the replies to be shown in descending order, so that the newest one is on top, just like the Extended Layout on the main forums page does for topics.

Thanks for all your hard work!

Also, does this release address the issues experienced by iPhone users?

Congratulation to a nice update! 😎 

The login solution is perfect and will solve many problems.
I do not see the new login-style, maybe it´s my theme that mess up the new login style.

 

Any way, Thank you!

We've already done this change in core and updated in plugin directory, you can update your recent posts page by changing wpforo/wpf-themes/classic/recent.php file with attached one. Just download, unzip and replace it using some FTP client. You can check the result here: https://wpforo.com/community/recent/

BTW it doesn't look similar to the Topic list. The topic list displays the first post then replies with reversed order.

I'm sorry but not yet, probable in next version. This is a small issue but takes days to debug the problem.

I think you have copies of login/register template files in WordPress theme folder. If so please remove those. if not just delete all caches and do Ctrl+F5 twice on according pages.

No, this is a not correct view. Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles admin page, put this CSS code in Custom CSS Code textarea, save it, delete all caches and do Ctrl+F5 on forum front:

.wpforo-widget-wrap .wpforo-widget-content .wpforo-list-item-left img{ width:100%; }

If you have some conflict with your theme just let us know. It should look like it's here on our community. that's very easy to see.

I preferred them round tbh 🙁 They look a little stretched and out of focus to me. I don't like giving critique and its only my opinion of course. 

Great job on the other aspects of the update 🙂

 

Edit: It seems there must be conflict with my Kleo theme as they look great on your site

I dont suppose you mind helping me getting them to look as they do on this site, rather than like they are now? (See attachment)

Just found out it´s possible to edit others post?

Have not seen that before

 

I mean, I can edit others members post for example on this forum.. 🤔 

Fixed now I see, do we need an update on our side as well. or was it just this forum?
