New Release: PeepSo 2.7.7 and Gecko 2.7.7.0

Another small maintenance release, bringing some minor improvements ahead of bigger features scheduled for later.

Embeds: filter to control oEmbed behavior

This version introduces the peepso_enable_oembed filter which can be used to programmatically disable and enable oEmbed when fetching links.

The use cases include completely disabling oEmbed for all links, or disabling it only for some URLs (like in the below example).

The full documentation of this filter can be found here.

Reactions: UI, UX & Accessibility improvements

We removed the title properties from the Reactions list, since they caused a “double label” when browser rendered the default label box. We replaced it with aria-label to maintain a level of compatibility with screen readers used by visually impaired users.

Login issues when using a caching plugin

The admin can now disable the security nonce check during PeepSo login. This should prevent PeepSo login failures on highly cached systems, since PeepSo will stop validating the (potentially over-cached) security login nonce. Using this setting is generally not recommended, as it lowers the systems resilience against brute force attacks, but it will be reasonably safe in a properly configured and secure environment with brute force protection and ReCaptcha enabled.

In the meantime, we are working closely together with the developers of W3 Total Cache, attempting to find a more universal and elegant solution.

Other improvements

We completely muted Mentions notifications related to scheduled posts. For now, users mentioned in scheduled posts, won’t be notified at all. Further improvements are shelved until 2.8+ versions ship a new notification engine.

The username and password fields now have an extra description, warning the user they will be signed out if either of the fields is changed.

The Groups plugin activation code was adjusted to avoid generating database warnings upon activation.

I am a professional nerd with **over a decade of experience** in the field of Open Source web development. Before [PeepSo](https://PeepSo.com) 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](https://PeepSo.com) 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.
