New Release: PeepSo 1.8.4

Published on August 7, 2017

We’re extremely happy to announce the immediate availability of PeepSo 1.8.4! It’s a great release that brings a lot of new features. The main focus was put on the BlogPosts plugin as you can see in the changelog. But it’s not the only one getting new features or improvements. Without further ado let’s get to the fun stuff!
BlogPosts
Frontend Blog Posts Submission
One of the most frequently asked features. Not a week goes by without users asking:
Can people write blogposts via your plugin?
And our answer has always been: no, there’s no point to reinvent the wheel. But we found a great plugin by CM developers: User Submitted Posts that already allows that.

4.10 Roadmap

Published on August 10, 2017

Hello!

It’s time for a roadmap! We know how much you look forward to new releases and in getting information for upcoming ones. We wanted to let you know what’s on tap for version 4.10 and a basic idea of when to expect it.

New Features

Tagging Members
Ability to tag a member in a post or comment. Username tagging is popular in social networking and it’s coming to SocialEngine PHP 4.10!

Smileys/Emoticons
Smileys/Emoticons are a staple of social networking. We’re including smiley/emoticon support for all text areas!

Profile and Group Banners
We will be adding support for banner images for both individual and group profiles. This adds a customization feature that members tend to love.

Hashtags
We’re adding hashtags! Similar to how Twitter #hashtags work, this will also include a tag cloud to show all of the hashtags added. This is great for SEO and user engagement.

Enhancements

Remove Flash
Remove flash components and replace with HTML5. This is something that clients have requested and we find it necessary due to browser changes. It’s not something we could release in a 4.9 minor release as it’s a big change so we will include it in 4.10…
