Looking For Something?

Development Build 16.05.d

In Brief…

Quite a lot of nice features for the forum toolbar (WYSIWYG editor) and the Galleries in here for next release, which due to other small additions we would like to get out as soon as possible.


Minor fixes and improvements.


Forum Toolbar

Added buttons to text mode (recommended to administrators only or not at all). See WPS Pro->Setup->Forum Toolbar.

Visual mode will automatically expand as content fills the text area.

Added buttons to text tab (of WYSIWYG editor). See options via WPS Pro->Setup->Forum Toolbar.

Visual mode will automatically expand height of WYSIWYG editor as content fills the text area.

Set default height of WYSIWYG editor via WPS Pro->Setup->Forum Toolbar.


Albums can allow others to upload to them, based on level set by album owner (via Edit when album selected). Set default on WPS Pro->Setup->Galleries.

When viewing an album, can edit image information to add a description and source, which is shown with the image when viewed (not when thumbnail).

New shortcode [wps-gallery-link] to show a link to user’s albums. See WPS Pro->Shortcodes->Gallery->[wps-gallery-link].

Forum Subscriptions

Alerts now generated asynchronously, speeding up user experience. Relevant to sites with a lot of new forum post subscriptions (or sending to all site members via Forum Settings).

Can set default value of “send copy of own forum posts” via WPS Pro->Setup->Forum Subscriptions.

Don’t Forget…
