Before I install the update, can you advise how this will work in tandem with my plugin WP Simple Membership - currently my users sign up via this plugin, as it is a paid membership, and a forum account is automatically created for them because of their wordpress profile. Will that continue to happen or are they required to join via the wpForo sign up process and agree to all the policies?

@robert and team,

Just installed this update and will begin exploring in more detail tomorrow. This is nothing more than a big thank you for such an amazing product that's like a fine wine - it gets better with age. All that's needed now from my perspective is integration with Ultimate Member, but hey - I can wait 😊

Hi Robert,

Just wondering as its not mentioned in the release notes for 1.4.8.

Did you not include the fix for the  stopping private topic posts being listed in the footer status bar, as detailed here, or was it delayed due to the GDPR urgency?

I think there should not be any issue. All these options are related to forum part, they doesn't affect other plugins. Nothing will be changed in your website authorization and registration functions. 

If you have a site-wide privacy policy you can add some text regarding to forum data usage. This is all what you need to do. There is a forum privacy policy template in Forums > Tools > Privacy and Rules admin page. This template includes all information about wpForo data usage, processing, controlling, etc..

Thank you anonymous3542,

We're waiting for some stable version of UM to start investigation of integration points.

Yes, this should also be fixed. This is included in change-log:

Fixed Bug: Private forum last post info in forum statistic

Hi anonymous3542,

In near future releases we're planning to add three more buttons (LinkedIn, Reddit, WhatsApp). The only reason why you don't see any share button is the large number of options. I'm sorry, but we can't add them all, however we'll add a few more new share buttons periodically in future releases.

Good Job Sire::.

I read through the major updates but couldn't find the improvement on the recent topic widget to filter by amount of replies e.t.c.

Or is it been delayed too?
Thank you.

Hi Olaniyan Olanrewaju,

but couldn't find the improvement on the recent topic widget to filter by amount of replies e.t.c.

We add the topic ordering logic. See screenshot. This is not the same as filter logic, we don't add the filter logic at all.

First of all a Big thank you for this excellent plugin.

After updating to version 1.4.8 videos I've embedded from YouTube do not appear anymore.

And videos in new posts are not saved at all

@yooda120,

We've removed iframe tag from post content by default. This is an insecure tag. However, if your sure your user will not use iframe tag to load viruses from other sites you can enable it back. Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Tools admin page, and in Antispam tab find the option to enable extra HTML tags. Put this in the textarea:

iframe(src width height),
