Some progress updates on Komento 3

Published on December 7, 2016

Phew, 2016 has been a roller coaster year for most of us! With the recent release of EasySocial 2.0 and many other apps, the team have also been working on Komento 3.0 and EasyBlog 5.1!

It has been almost 3 years now since the first release of Komento 1.0. It was available to download for free until we posted the announcement here. While some of you don’t agree with our move, we needed to take this step to move ahead.

Komento has always been an ideal extension for adding comments on your Joomla! site. In fact, it is one of the best commenting solutions for Joomla with a super awesome UI! We have taken another huge leap again with Komento 3.0. This time by refactoring the code base and also trimming down tons of fats from the extension. Read to learn more about what to expect for Komento 3.0…Read More

bbPress 2.5.12 – Requires WordPress 4.7

Published on December 9, 2016

Oh, bother! Out now is bbPress 2.5.12, which fixes a bug for WordPress 4.7 users who did the right thing and updated to bbPress 2.5.11. Some of you may have noticed your bbPress menu items disappear – this release fixes that stinger. ?

2.5.12 officially bumps the minimum WordPress version requirement to 4.7 for all releases going forward. If you are stuck on a previous version of WordPress, please continue to use 2.5.11.

This cut-off is in place because the improvements to user-roles in WordPress 4.7 are really that important, and all future bug-fix releases to 2.5 and major releases going forward will be taking advantage of them.

If you’ve updated to 4.7 and are one of the unlucky few to get stung by the missing-menu bug, please accept my sincere apologies along with an update to 2.5.12 to relieve the itching…Read More
