New Release: PeepSo & Gecko

One of the last 4.2 releases ahead of a big May release brings more bug fixes and improvements across the board.

UI / UX improvements

We added user avatars to the list when attempting to mention someone in a comment reply. Issues with voting in Polls sorted by votes has been solved. An edge case with rendering user names containing brackets has been identified and fixed.

There was a problem logging back in if the user logged out in another tab or the session expired. The issue was related (as usual) to security nonces and AJAX, and was fixed in this release.

On admin side of things, we fixed the sorting “by last attempt” in the Brute Force section.

Developers: links in Group menu

The peepso_group_segment_menu_links filter was refactored to be more useful for third party developers.

The filter now passes two objects _Group and _GroupUser which provide basic context (which group exactly is being handled) and User-Group relationship (is the user a member, etc). These can be used to modify the segments only for specific groups and only for specific group roles.

Starting with this version, and similar to a sister filter controlling user profile segments, if the href parameter starts with http it will be treated as a direct link external to the group itself. This can be used to link to specific pages instead of a group/groupname/customtab schema.

Gecko Theme compatibility

We continue testing the Gecko theme with popular WordPress plugins from the Plugin Repository and fixing any issues we find. In this round, we looked into Instagram Feed, Ninja Forms and TablePress. We found only very minor CSS layout issues which have been improved in this release.


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.
