New Release: PeepSo & Gecko 3.5.1.0

Login with Reddit. Dokan “user to vendor” upgrade process. Multiple improvements & bug fixes.

Dokan: allow users switch to vendors

In an effort to improve user experience related to becoming a Dokan vendor, we introduced a new administrator setting: let users become vendors. It will enable a new button in the user account preferences, where they will be able to either immediately turn themselves into a vendor, or apply to become one (depending on the setting).

If enabled, users can apply or convert immediately to vendor status in their profile preferences

Login with Reddit

The Social Login And Invitations plugin was extended with the ability to register / login with Reddit. As always, the configuration instructions are included within the plugin itself.

Register / login with Reddit is now available in PeepSo Social Login And Invitations

Other improvements

Admin can now enable a special feature in groups that will prevent creation of multiple groups with the same name. This feature is not bullet proof against creative users (ones who might be adding numbers, special characters, experiment with multiple spaces etc) but is good against accidental duplicates.

We fixed some issues with alphabetical user sorting and issues with some third parties preventing admins from showing in the member list. The login form has been improved to properly detect copy-paste action done with mouse (right-click menu rather than the keyboard shortcut). In Gecko, the misaligned notification icon issue (present since the last update on some sites) has been reverted.

Early Access features

We have two major new features going on int the Early Access beta program, available for all active Ultimate Bundle license holders. Please check out the Early Access Group to learn more.

Post backgrounds

Post backgrounds responsive / mobile design was improved, along with better handling of URLs, mentions and hashtags. We also added configurable length and newline limits.

Post Backgrounds are now in Early Access public testing phase

WP Event Manager

WP Event Manager integration RSVP system was improved under-the-hood with better exception handling in the REST API. We also introduced organizer overrides (to use PeepSo profiles instead of native WPEM Organizers), improved widget styling and added a two column option for the grid view.

WP Event Manager Integration (also in Early Access) features an RSVP system built by PeepSo

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 (3.4.0.0) 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.

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.
