New Release: PeepSo & Gecko

Small PHP8 compatibility improvements, quality of life improvement around “email required to login” feature, small fixes.

What’s new?

We fixed an issue where the login would not be verbose enough if user wanted to use their already auto-filled-in credentials (username and password) in websites where admin enabled the require email to login feature. In such edge case the login form seemed to be broken, where in fact it was simply waiting for an email to be provided in the first field. We have added some error messages there to make sure users know what’s not working and why.

We have also fixed some final small bugs related to PHP 8, one in BadgeOS integration and two in LearnDash integration.

Another bug that was fixed was pretty interesting: when user had the same vanity URL as a group (for example users/matt and groups/matt) PeepSo would display posts where they didn’t belong (groups posts on user stream and vice versa). Post privacy was still observed (it’s very hardcoded), but still posts displayed in the wrong place. This release takes care of that.

We also ensured compatibility with the latest WooCommerce 5.2 and solved a compatibility issue where our Social Login would confuse Elementor Pro license activation endpoint for a social login endpoint and interfere with it.

Reminder: PHP 7.3 and WordPress 5.5 are now required

Just in case you missed my previous release blog: We have further discontinued support for older PHP and WordPress versions, and PeepSo 3.4.x now requires PHP 7.3 and WordPress 5.5. We recommend PHP 7.4 and WordPress 5.7.

I am a professional nerd with **over fifteen years 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 a contractor to a business owner, I became [PeepSo]( founder and Chief Technology Officer. I strive to build beautiful, fast, and functional software that **empowers users to build their own digital tribes with full autonomy and freedom** often not available on mainstream social networking media. In 2022 I launched [EmeraldWP]( which acts as an umbrella for my other projects such as ListoWP, Widget Shortcode Pro, and MomentsWP.

Great enhancement on the Login Error message for the switch to Required Email for login ... since doing so I have had to respond to tons of users so this will hopefully improve that. THANKS Just tested it. Perfect ! Now I can remove an on-page notice I put to trying to inform users.
