We just released wpForo 1.5.0, then in a day 1.5.1 UM integration version.

Note: After the update please delete all caches and do Ctrl+F5 on forum front.

Main Changes

 

1. Multiple Usergroups (Secondary Usergroups)

Using Secondary Usergroups you can set more than one Usergroups to any user in My Profile > Account and in Dashboard > Users > Edit User page:

Secondary Usergroups are simple Usergroups listed in Dashboard > Forums > Usergroups admin page. You should edit certain Usergroup and enable the "Can be also used as Secondary Usergroup" option to use it as Secondary Usergroup:

 

2. User Role-Usergroup Synchronization

Started from wpForo 1.5.0 version forum usergroups are synchronized with WordPress user Roles. The synchronization direction is from User Role to Usergroup. It means if some user Role is changed by some plugin or by website admin the Usergroup of this user will be changed automatically based on Role-Usergroup relation setting in Forums > Usergroups admin page. This helps to make wpForo compatible with paid membership and other User Role based access regulator plugins.

Note: The [Synchronize] button changes all users Usergroups according to the users Roles. For example, if you select "Contributor" Role for "Registered" Usergroup, all users with "Contributor" Role will get "Registered" Usergroup in forum.

You can see User Role - Usergroup relationship and synchronization status in User Role table below the Usergroup list on the same Forums > Usergroups admin page:

If you want to disable Role-Usergroup synchronization and manage Usergroups and User Roles independently, please navigate to Forums > Settings > Features admin page and disable "Role-Usergroup Synchronization" option.

 

3. New permission "Can answer own question" in forum access set

This permission brings more Q&A friendly discussion. If this permission is disabled, all new replies of Question Authors in Q&A topics will be added as comments. Answer button will only be available for other users.

 

4. Admin note/message on Forum frontend

 

5. Forum Dashboard and Forum Home links in top admin bar

 

6. Edit post logging with date and author name

 

7. Ultimate Member plugin integration

This integration Includes Forums tab with Topics, Replies, Liked Posts and Subscriptions sub-tabs on UM Profile page. Also wpForo is integrated with UM Real-time Notification system. Users get notifications when someone posted in their topics or replied to topic posts.

If my post above didn't help or if you don't see Forum Tab options in UM Settings, please deactivate wpForo, delete it (delete plugin), search and install it again.

I did end up having to deactivate, delete and reinstall. But it works now. So happy to see this functionality!

Just updated and in ONE of my 2 sites, a black logged-in like bar appeared to visitors on top of the page. With some links like the backsite and a search.

I have no idea from where that came from, but disabling wpForo goes away.

(edit: actually is it on BOTH sites, after clearing my browser cache).

Not sure what happened with the update, but we had to turn

Show Admin Bar for Members

to off and the bar is gone.

Still i'm 100% sure we had this to OFF before the update and there was NO admin bar to our installations.

Anyway, solved.

Post logging limits please

Nice feature that Edit post logging with date and author name . Problem is for frequently editted posts/topics, this log becomes excessively long. I've disabled it as a result.

Can we either have a limit setting for post logs to show (eg: 5) or can I have the old functionality back where a note is recorded that the post was editted?

Hi nando4,

I'm sorry but there is no such an option, yet. We'll add the new option, that will allow displaying either all logs or only the last one in next version release.

You can set unlimited number of Usergroups to one user.

First you should create as many Usergroup as you want in Dashboard > Forums > Usergroups admin page.

Make sure the option "Can be also used as Secondary Usergroup" is enabled for that Usergroups.

Then find Usergroups in User Profile setting page in Dashboard > Users > Edit users screen or in Forum Profile > Account page.

With the 1.5 update, the top menu is LOST for members. Disabling wpforo comes back (options to their profile, the Howdy, search,logoff).

The following capture is with wpForo DISABLED.

Please make sure again, that the "Show Admin Bar for Members" option is enabled in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features Tab.

Robert, a few post back we spoke about that. Enabling that created an black bar for ALL visitors.

Another PHP Error. When setting the forum page as the static from customize theme:

Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function wpforo_get_shortcode_pageid() in /wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-includes/wpf-hooks.php:125

When setting from WP settings no error but it does create a new forum page with a new name like: "Forum page_on_front" (cannot remember if this expected behaviour).
