New Release: PeepSo 2.7.9 and Gecko 2.7.9.0

Another small, incremental update bringing some features and improvements that do not interfere with our background work on the major release of PeepSo 3.0.0 later this year.

What’s new?

The tighter PeepSo BlogPosts & Hashtags integration was extended with the ability to import Categories as Hashtags. WP Posts with no categories are always assigned a default category, so do not use this option if the post has no categories, unless you are happy with the default category being converted into a hashtag. We also added two new config options to always enable the tags and/or categories integrations when adding a new post, to streamline the publishing flow. The options do not apply when editing a post.

We fixed some minor bugs with the Mutual Friends widget not showing in all widget positions, updated the cropping library to improve mobile experience with avatar uploads, and renamed the “static” header to “sticky” header to avoid confusion about what that Gecko feature actually does.


And one more thing…

We are slowly gearing up for the biggest release in PeepSo history – version 3.0.0.0 will ship a new design (including new HTML and CSS), group category streams, and more streamlined notification engine with the ability to “digest” e-mail notifications instead of emailing the user every single event.

We strongly encourage you to prepare a staging environment to test the upcoming version 3.0.0.0 because of all the breaking changes we are going to ship. This will allow us to fix any potential issues and conflicts in a timely manner without compromising your live site.

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.

This sounds just GREAT! May I ask if the version 3.0 will have as easy way to personalize the menu bar under profile? Change names of the categories, change the name of the category ecc? I've my team working on it with the actual 2.7.8 now

@peepso_user_22080(Joan Porcel) no, it’s extremely simple to do with a filter, we’re not planning to clutter the UI with that.

I have done the updates to Peepso and gecko on stage site and i have NO changes at all, everything is like before... i used a child theme.
Is it possible??? :)
Can i be lucky, or something is wrong?
Plugins and theme versions are the most recent...
I only think is faster now, but fortunately everything is conserved...
Do you think i can update the original site (even for safety... Wordfence tells me to do it for safety reasons)

Meanwhile i want to thank you for the special work you do
I appreciate it a lot, my site is finally done now, i hope it will grow like Peepso do :)
