We just released wpForo 1.7.1 version!

We've fixed many bugs and added new features. wpForo JS and CSS files are optimized. The performance is also improved.

 

Important update notes

  • Some JS and CSS files are changed, please refresh (press Ctrl+F5) on forum front-end twice to reset browser cache, otherwise you'll see crashed design.
  • If you have a Cache or Minifier/Optimizer plugins please delete all caches after wpForo update.
  • If you use CDN and found some issue please purge it.
  • Forum template files are modified. The modifications were made in layout files to add "jump to unread post" functionality. Also, the header.php is modified and added User Notification Bell in the menu bar section. If you have an old customized copies of forum template files in your WP theme /wpforo/ folder please update those.

 

Main Changes

 

1. Many changes and options in Recent Posts widget and page

  • Added: Unread / Read bold title indicator in Recent Posts widget
  • Added: Option to display [new] indicator in Recent Posts widget
  • Added: Option to only display unread posts in Recent Posts widget
  • Added: Links "Jump to last unread" feature in Recent Posts page

 

1.1 Now recent posts are displaying with bold titles in Recent Posts widget if a post is unread. Also, there is an option in widget to display the [new] indicator for unread posts.

 

1.2 In case if you want to use the Recent Posts widget as Unread Post widget you can enable the "Display only unread posts" option. The read/unread status is deeply logged only for logged-in users so this widget will be hidden for guests.

 

2. Besides already existing In-forum notification types, we've also added user @mentioning notification.

 

3. Click the "link" icon of each post to get a Short and Full URL.

 

4. Frontend Admin Control Panel with quick links at the bottom of all forums.

 

5. Frontend info-box and instruction to protect user registration form.

  • Added: In-forum notification when user is @mentioned

Great update! Thank you!

One teeny tiny bug to report: When hovering on the "new" icon, the text shows, "Got to first unread post", which should be, "Go to first unread post". I know I can change this myself in the Phrases settings, but thought you might like to know about it. 🙂

Thanks again!

Also noticing that clicking "Clear all" on the notifications dropdown always takes me back to the forum index. Before the update, it would simply refresh the current page. I've cleared all forum, server, and browser caches several times and tried in multiple browsers with the same results.

Click the "link" icon of each post to get a Short and Full URL.

Now in the Google index will there be duplicate pages / posts?

My forum powered by wpForo v2.0.5 (theme GeneratePress v3.0.2)

No, there will not be any duplication. Because there is no shortlink in forum for Search Engine Bots. They only index full links. Also,  only forum and topics URLs are indexed, posts URLs are not in available for search engines, so the short URL is only related to posts. There is no topic short URL. As a topic short URL you can use the first post short URL which is not indexed.

Finally, in upcoming version, we'll keep the canonical URLs always the same, it doesn't matter you've opened the same topic with short URL or with Full URL, there will always be one full canonical URL.
