New Release: PeepSo 2.2.3

First release of April 2019. Definitely not the last one. A bunch of new features as well as improvements are already available for your community. Don’t wait! Get them all today.

Non-alphanumeric hashtags

The “allow non-alphanumeric hashtags” feature was available for quite a while in an open beta, but it had a number of issues. After merging the Hashtags feature with the free Foundation (along with MarkDown) and putting more focus on JavaScript driven Client Side Rendering we found it easier to finally implement it in a more reliable way.

PeepSo hashtags now support all human languages and much more

We had to wrestle a couple of issues related to URLs, redirects and the main PeepSo Activity shortcode being the Front Page.

If non-alphanumeric hashtags are enabled, anything the user is able to type will be a legal hashtag – that includes non-Latin characters (found in languages like Russian, Polish, French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and many many more) but also special characters.

2FA Integration

PeepSo now works smoothly with the Two Factor Authentication plugin for greater security. Users for whom it is enabled will require a one-time code in order to log in.

What is 2FA?

Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a type, or subset, of multi-factor authentication. It is a method of confirming users’ claimed identities by using a combination of two different factors: 1) something they know, 2) something they have, or 3) something they are.

A good example of two-factor authentication is the withdrawing of money from an ATM; only the correct combination of a bank card (something the user possesses) and a PIN (something the user knows) allows the transaction to be carried out.

Two other examples are to supplement a user-controlled password with a one-time password (OTP) or code generated or received by an authenticator (e.g. a security token or smartphone) that only the user possesses.

Scheduled Posts

The feature was introduced in the last release, although editing was not shipped because we needed extra time to test everything. 2.2.3 brings that feature to the table and it is now possible to edit scheduled posts. Deleting the scheduled posts was improved and the date span was expanded beyond the year 2024.

Other Improvements

It is now possible to disable the Chat overlay on selected pages, so that it does not distract the user from the content.

We continue to improve our MarkDown text formatting, especially when it comes to multiple line breaks; we also fixed an issue with MarkDown confusing WordFilter’s * characters for formatting directives and made sure the formatting kicks in on all pages, in case a MarkDown enabled profile field is printed somewhere outside of the primary PeepSo context (for example in a widget).

I am a professional nerd with **over a decade of experience** in the field of Open Source web development. Before [PeepSo]( I was a contractor and have helped build successful businesses around the world, including USA, UK, Germany, Indonesia and Malaysia. A couple of years leading up to founding PeepSo, I was involved with JomSocial - a social networking extension for Joomla. Stepping up from the role of contractor to business owner, I became [PeepSo]( founder and Chief Technology Officer. I strive to build beautiful, fast and functional software that **empowers the users to build their own digital tribes with full autonomy and freedom** often not available on the mainstream social networking media. As a **location independent** *digital nomad* I travel almost constantly, although over the past five years I have spent most of my time in Indonesia and Malaysia. I speak fluent English and Polish, decent German and Spanish and even some Indonesian.

Thank you everyone, I found " catchplugins " on the Wordpress... it worked great to create a Child Theme - I'm using it now and putting any changes to the theme into it.
