New Release: PeepSo & Gecko

Multiple security, UI/UX and logic improvements across the board. And today is the 22nd of February 2022. 22.02.2022, which happens to also be a palindrome, we like our palindromes.

VIP icons reordering

We improved how VIP icons work by making sure the admin-defined order always applies in the front-end. Before, the cache would keep the old order until user icon collection was modified.

Email blocklist & Social Login

The PeepSo email domain blocklist now also applies to Social Login. Without this fix, users with emails in banned domains were able to register using Facebook, Twitter etc. effectively circumventing the block.

UI & UX improvements

The mobile UI for stream filters has been improved. We made sure that deleting a comment also visually removes all sub-comments without reloading the page. Gecko compatibility with third party plugins (WooCommerce and others) has been improved.

Security & logic fixes

We patched a minor security issue with recently introduced “admin only fields” where profile owner (non-admin) could edit the “admin only” fields if they figured out a way to modify the API calls.

Another recently introduced feature – admin controlled default for email intensity settings – had a bug in fresh install where the default admin setting would not reflect the user experience in the frontend.

Gecko theme version lock logic was improved, to make sure that child themes that do not follow the versioning scheme by adding an additional number (for example changing to still are properly recognized as compatible (or not) based on the first three sections.


Be sure to see our changelog for all the details.

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.

From the demo I can see the "latest" and "recently commented" which is awesome. Another #suggestion is to have the "most liked or most up voted" or "trending / hottest"
