New Release: PeepSo and Gecko

Lets you exclude categories from Blog Posts integration and control who can perform likes and reactions.

What’s new?

PeepSo now lets you exclude categories from the Blog Posts integration. The setting can be found in the Category edit screen. When a category is excluded, PeepSo will ignore posts that belong to said category, meaning a stream post will not be created and the comment integration will be unavailable. It might be useful if you have a category of posts where the community engagement is not welcome / important, or you use a plugin which uses posts for storage without a proper CPT.

Starting with you can also control who can like and react to posts and comments. This improves your control over who can perform notification-generating actions before they fill they profile, upload avatar, pay for a membership etc.

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 adding the category exclusion option, it's been on my mind for some time. Above mentions "Starting with you can also control who can like and react to posts and comments".
Where do we find this new setting for controlling who can like/comment/react to posts?

@peepso_user_13(Siniša Krišan) Thank you. Because the plugin wasn't installed on my end I missed the setting as a result. 😉 Looking forward to trying it out.
