6 New Widgets in PeepSo 1.6.0

In my last blog post I introduced PeepSo 1.6.0, explained all the core enhancements and new features… and mentioned that we also have some new and much-needed widgets.

They’re very cool!

Widgets – Increase Community Engagement

The six new widgets make your community more dynamic and engaging. You can start using them as soon as you upgrade PeepSo and all its plugins to the latest version. You can find them on the WordPress admin widgets page (Appearance -> Widgets).

Friends’ Birthdays

Everybody wants to feel special on their birthday! This new PeepSo widget allows your members to see who has a birthday today, and whose birthday is coming up tomorrow or in the following days.

If members want to keep their birthday a secret, they can choose to hide their special day by choosing “Only Me” on the privacy settings.

Mutual Friends

Seeing the friends that a member has in common with other friends helps them to form small gangs of their own. They can chat among themselves, swap stories and arrange to meet in real life. Admins can put this widget in any position on the site but we found that it works best in the ‘PeepSo’ widget position.

I'm a Digital Nomad currently living in Manila, The Philippines. Co-Founder and CEO of PeepSo.com. First time WordCamp Speaker at WordCamp Kuala Lumpur 2017, WordCamp Singapore 2019 and hoping to speak more soon. I started my journey with open source nearly a decade ago as a simple support guy. Joomla! was my first encounter with the world of Open Source. After that period of my life got phased out I fell in love with WordPress and never left. I have been both lucky and at the same time I worked my ass off to get to where I am right now. Free time, if I have any, is usually spent with my wife and / or travel around South-East Asia. Even when I'm supposed to be on a little vacation, not a day goes by when I don't check up on PeepSo. So far visited or lived in: Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Hungary, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, China, Japan, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Norway, Germany, Scotland, England and more... Whenever possible, I jump on my Ducati Monster and just ride.
