New Release: PeepSo & Gecko

A small bugfix release improving compatibility with third parties.

PeepSo & Gecko

We fixed an issue where animated GIFs would not work properly in Photos with Amazon S3 integration enabled. The Groups plugin interfered on occasion with new posts created by users with numeric usernames (mistakenly taking the username for a group ID). The videos configuration page no longer crashes if the shell_exec function is not installed / available.

We also further improved the Early Access “Post Backgrounds” feature to properly strip formatting & HTML. This feature uses a new postbox not based on a HTML textarea, and acts as a test bed for extending this kind of rich tech postbox implementation to the rest of PeepSo.

Post Backgrounds are now in Early Access public testing phase

Third party compatibility

The latest BadgeOS tended to break our video upload & conversion process, so we took care of it in this release. The PMP checkout flow has been fixed to work with third party gateways.

Reminder: PHP 7.3 and WordPress 5.5 are now required

Just in case you missed the previous releases: starting with the previous major release ( we have further discontinued support for older PHP and WordPress versions, and PeepSo 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.

@peepso_user_10(Matt Jaworski) Can you fix the login page as like before to come up with login page first. Now after updating the PeepSo plugin it's opening the registration page first....!!
