We've just released wpForo 1.9.4 version then 1.9.5.

Lots of bugs are fixed. The core and AJAX functions are optimized.

 

Important update notes

  • Almost all JS files are changed, so it's important to delete all caches, purge optimizer plugin caches and CDN. Then you should reset your browser cache on forum front-end by pressing CTRL+F5. If your browser is Safari/Mac press [CMD] + [ALT] + [E] on forum frontend.
  • If you have Minifier/Optimizer plugins please delete all caches after wpForo update.
  • In case you have customized forum template files and found some issues, you should update them with the new 1.9.4 version of template files.

 

Main Changes

 

Option to locate editor toolbar

When you write a long text in the topic editor you're getting far from the editor toolbar located on the top of the editor. So, each time you need to use it, you have to scroll up and click on the formatting buttons. We've added an option to move the editor toolbar from the top to bottom. Thus, it's always close to your writing area and makes it easy to use any formatting button without scrolling up and down. The option is located in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Topics & Posts Tab. You can manage the toolbar location for topic and post editor separately.

 

New permissions "Can enter..." for Forum Accesses

The newly added "Can enter forum" and "Can enter topic" permissions don't allow entering users in forums or topics while letting them see the titles based on "Can view forum" and "Can view topic" permissions. In other words, you can show topic titles but don't let them enter and see posts. When a user clicks a topic link he/she see a message like "The level of your Usergroup is not appropriate" or "You need a higher level of permission to see the content".

You can read this FAQ topic to see how wpForo Forum Accesses control user accesses to certain forum based on the user Usergroup: https://wpforo.com/community/faq/wordpress-user-roles-wpforo-usergroups-and-forum-accesses/

 

New Addon: wpForo Topic Prefix & Tag Manager

This addon is actually designed to make going through the forums and finding threads with the similar content a lot easier. Topic prefixes can be used to filter forums and can be combined with a keyword search to help users find what they are looking for.

In addition to lots of features, this addon allows you to add, edit, delete topic tags and convert them to prefixes.

New Addon: wpForo Syntax Highlighter

This addon was released a bit earlier. We've adapted the code [</>] button for inserting codes in post editor without losing indents and tabs. So, this addon will work better with wpForo 1.9.4 version for sure.

wpForo Syntax Highlighter addon displays formatted source code using the highlight.js JavaScript library in content of forum posts. This addon supports almost all programming languages including Apache, C#, C++, CSS, HTML, XML, JSON, Java, JavaScript, Objective-C, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby, SQL, Basic, TypeScript, VB.NET with dozens of different syntax highlighting styles.

  • Added: Hook to enable multi-site signup functions for forum registration
